As he climbs into the sidecar of Hagrid's motorbike and takes to the skies, leaving Privet Drive for the last time, Harry Potter knows that Lord Voldemort and the Death Eaters are not far behind. The protective charm that has kept Harry safe until now is broken, but he cannot keep hiding. The Dark Lord is breathing fear into everything Harry loves and to stop him Harry will have to find and destroy the remaining Horcruxes. The final battle must begin - Harry must stand and face his enemy....

When the Knight Bus crashes through the darkness and screeches to a halt in front of him, it's the start of another far from ordinary year at Hogwarts for Harry Potter. Sirius Black, escaped mass-murderer and follower of Lord Voldemort, is on the run - and they say he is coming after Harry. In his first ever Divination class, Professor Trelawney sees an omen of death in Harry's tea leaves.... But perhaps most terrifying of all are the Dementors patrolling the school grounds, with their soul-sucking kiss....

I love these books. I have read them so any times I could almost recite it. But I HATE the guy who reads this. he pronounces everything wrong, Haionie sounds like a whinny baby every time she talks, and I wanna stab my ears every time he says HARRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY. Totally ruined the book. I can't get past the 3rd one! I would 100% but a new set if Stephen Fry read it

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!

What made the experience of listening to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Book 1 the most enjoyable?

I love listening to the HP books. They are just all around amazing. I love listening to Stephen Fry but they aren't on Audible, which really sucks but what can you do.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Book 1?

My fav part of this book is the zoo and Snape's part of the test.

Have you listened to any of Jim Dale’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Nope, this is a first for him. He's not bad but I prefer Stephen Fry

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I'm not sure.

Any additional comments?

Nope
