Unless you're a big fan of classic fiction, this is going to seem like hard work for language learning, but it's a good resource for general language input for upper intermediate and advanced learners (listen regularly for a short period).  You can also work on a short section using the shadow reading technique, where you keep the volume quite low and try to read aloud with the reader; this helps fluency and intonation.  Otherwise you can just listen and note words which are not pronounced as you expected, and look for patterns there.
