Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!

I have read the physical books, loved them all. I wanted the audio versions for my drive to work. The narrator ruined this book for me. Didn't anyone bother to edit this? He pronounces names completely wrong. His interpretation of the conversations is off. I was just disappointed.
