What a story, what a story, what a story. I'm commenting on this book but I'm talking about the series as a whole. This will go down as one of the best series ever written in our time. A truly great example of the wanders the human brain can conceive. Hats off and applause for j.k. Rowling creating something so thorough, and awe inspiring that I wouldn't be surprised if at some point in our lives this series turns out to be based on something going on that we are not currently aware of. A truly magical story (no pun intended but now that I mention it, it might as well be) that every child should read. Inspiring courage in the face of ever growing danger, friendship when its easy to go your separate ways, and fighting to the death and beyond for what you believe in. The movies pale in comparison to this work of art, and the story told is better suited to drawn in your mind as opposed to a world bound by physical limitations. Jim dale brings the story to life in the most uncompromising of ways. He reads with the right amount of enthusiasm and is so good representing different characters it's as if there's a whole cast. A model story(series as a whole) and model voice performance. I will listen to this story again and again and again!

Dark times have come to Hogwarts. After the Dementors' attack on his cousin Dudley, Harry Potter knows that Voldemort will stop at nothing to find him. There are many who deny the Dark Lord's return, but Harry is not alone: a secret order gathers at Grimmauld Place to fight against the dark forces. Harry must allow Professor Snape to teach him how to protect himself from Voldemort's savage assaults on his mind. But they are growing stronger by the day and Harry is running out of time....
