Would someone please be so kind to provide a few titles available on LibriVox that have an unambiguous dystopian theme. Thank you.

I cannot verify the results, but I searched our collection at Archive for "dystopian" and here's what it came up with:

Perhaps read the blurbs and any reviews, and maybe research them elsewhere online to see if they really are. About all I can guarantee from this search is that whoever set them up (or commented on them) used the word. :)

What, archive doesn't find this gem:

Not so much a dystopia as such, if you're looking for societal impact, but the best "nature takes it all back" that I have read. :thumbs:
Sadly, it ends a bit abruptly...

Edit: Reading on a bit on the wiki page for that book, there's also
that were inspired by "After London"

Definitely catch We by Yevgeny Zemyatin when it is completed. (It's being recorded now.) Also, don't miss London's The Iron Heel. https://librivox.org/the-iron-heel-by-jack-london/
Not feeling well. I'll get back to work as soon as possible. My LibriVox: https://librivox.org/sections/readers/13278
