"'There is a plot, Harry Potter. A plot to make most terrible things happen at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry this year.'"

Harry Potter's summer has included the worst birthday ever, doomy warnings from a house-elf called Dobby, and rescue from the Dursleys by his friend Ron Weasley in a magical flying car! Back at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for his second year, Harry hears strange whispers echo through empty corridors - and then the attacks start. Students are found as though turned to stone... Dobby's sinister predictions seem to be coming true.

Stephen Fry does it yet again

The Harry Potter series are my favorite. I love the adventures, the characters and just everything. Stephen Fry is an amazing narrator and he does a great job with this book. I enjoyed it even better than reading it myself.

Stephen Fry’s incredible performance grips you and then leaves you wanting more. His Hagrid was stunningly similar to the real one. PERFECT.

I just... my heart is so full right now

This was just on another level. First of all, regarding the content of the book itself - I was reminded of just how good this series is and how incredible JK Rowling's talent is. She's a legend for a reason. As for this specific version of the book - Stephen Fry is just... wow. He's so good and talented, it was a pure pleasure!! I couldn't stop listening, this was a piece of heaven. He made the book, its world and each of its characters come to life. It was like hearing about a real-life tale that he knew of first hand. I didn't want the book to end. As said before of this combo - this is a match made in heaven. I found myself putting off sleep just so I could listen to 5,10,30... more minutes of pleasure. I wanted to cuddle up with this audio book and not do anything until I finish it all up - while at the same time I didn't want it to end!! haha Recommended, recommended, recommended :)

A Delight!

Travelling through these books now in audio format is to revisit some of the finest story-telling that I personally have ever come across. I don't think many would claim that J K Rowling explored brand new ground to stretch the fantasy / sci-fi genres into new areas. What she did do though is take fantasy and shape it into a fantastic set of stories that genuinely people of all ages could enjoy. She opened up the genre in a way not seen since The Lord of the Rings.

When you marry that to the near sublime narration from Stephen Fry you end up with something that when taken in its own terms is as near perfect an audiobook as I have had the pleasure to listen to.

For those of us who's only recent experience of Harry Potter has been the excellent films there is also the occasional hidden please of scenes that never made it to the films such as the "Deathday" Party.

Right, I'm off to chase the Prisoner of Azkaban now!

Love a good Fry up!

Any additional comments?

If you're a Harry Potter Fan, you need to hear the books read by Fry. He brings a new level of magic to the fantasy that is Harry Potter.

Changes to original script

I understand that books have to be rewritten for the audible format. I do not accept that the original plot requires such extensive changes.

Couldn't be better

Timeless story and wonderful narration by no other than Stephen Fry. I've been enchanted into these books after seeing the film's and never managing to read through all of them as a child. Listening to them on audible is continuing to be, a great experience.

Good books

I stopped reading the books when the movies came out personally they ruined the mental images I had created for myself. Being older and busier now these audio books are wonderful to listen to while I drive or lay in bed although Steven fry has such a soothing voice it often sends me off to sleep :) the first books I had ever read and just as magical the second time around xx

Kids loved it

Our kids can't get enough of Harry Potter. Having the audio book enables us to read the book during dinner or downtime. I find the kids just want to get to bed earlier so they can find out what happens next. Stephen Fry is great.

Splendid!

The Harry Potter saga continues and Stephen Fry's voice acting shines once again. The only complaint I now have is that now I'v gotten so used to his narrating, voices from other audiobooks feel lacking in emotion. It's rather selfish, but if he could narrate every fantasy book on Audible, I'd be very happy indeed.
