Audio and text

Could anyone refer me to some interesting texts with audio? I would prefer authentic material, ie not beginner dialogues. 

 

I have seen some interesting stuff on librivox (knut hamsun, ibsen, etc.), but I fear the vocabulary might be a bit to archaic and complex for my level (can a native give his opinion here? - is norwegian literature from that time really hard to read?)

 

Also, if a native speaker would have the generosity of recording (through "vocaroo", for example) a short text for me (I will send it to him/her), I would be extremely grateful

 

Thank you!

Can't really help you find materials as I wouldn't know where to look.

 

The best way to gauge Hamsun/Ibsen is just to try it and see if you can follow it. The vocabulary is pretty archaic, yeah, so not super relevant to modern Norwegian, but whether that's a drawback depends on your interests.

 

I can make a recording for you though, if you like.
