Could anyone help me to find out which accent these 2 audios are ? Thank you!!! I am studying English through listening to audio books. Since I like the novel"The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry", I plan to listen to its audiobook. But I am not sure which accent the audiobooks are. Could you help me to find out? Here are two samples of audio books of "The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry". http://www.audible.com/pd/Fiction/The-Unlikely-Pilgrimage-of-Harold-Fry-Audiobook/B008GYKENK/ref=a_search_c4_1_ http://www.audible.com/pd/Fiction/The-Unlikely-Pilgrimage-of-Harold-Fry-Audiobook/B007HQDGEM/ref=a_search_c4_1_2_srTtl?qid=1453866408&sr=1-2#publisher-summary I am really appreciate your kind help!!!

Jim Broadbent is from Lincolnshire in the east of England. His accent is not a strong one by English standards, and it is close to a standard southern English accent. If you listen to audio files of words in online dictionaries, the accent will be similar. I think he is a good person for a student to listen to.

Hey Yuanyuan, those 2 books are read by the same person (Jim Broadbent), a famous English actor. His accent is very British to me, but maybe someone more familiar with the UK could pinpoint the exact location ;)
