Publisher's Summary

"'Give me Harry Potter,' said Voldemort's voice, 'and none shall be harmed. Give me Harry Potter, and I shall leave the school untouched. Give me Harry Potter, and you will be rewarded.'" 

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.... 

Theme music composed by James Hannigan.

There is nothing better than listening to Stephen Fry read stories, after a long day of work.

That voice

I want Stephen Fry to narrate every book on this site. If I had a choice, I would probably have either him or Morgan freeman narrate my life too!

Nostalgia before turning 30

I pretty much grew up with Harry Potter. In the wake of my 30th birthday - a week from now- I decided to say goodbye to my 20s by listening to the whole saga. I have to say. The older you get the better these books are. I think I felt the growth of every character way more than when I was younger. Dumbledore. You are my MVP. Now I can see how many flaws everyone had but also how clearly everyone overcame them or learnt to live with them. Stephen fry is a master of narration and it adds a whole new level of experience to listen to these books with his voice. Now. I take my train from king cross station to a new experience.

Stephen Fry is the best narrator on Audible

Its nice to think that in this day and age the art of oral storytelling isn't dead. Realise that Stephen is reading from a book rather than memorising a tale, but absolutely fantastic. I would recommend any audiobook read by Stephen to anyone, absolutely amazingly delivery.

The most fantastic audiobook

I loved the films, reading books, studio tour and most recently seen the play. But, my best Harry Potter experience has been listening to Stephen Fry reading JK Rowling's fantastic story. Addictive listening. Beyond brilliant. Stephen Fry is a master narrator and I would like to say THANK YOU.

Hallowed Be Thy Name Harry Potter!

This book marks the end of a long journey for anyone who has followed Harry, Ron, Hermione and the others through their school years at Hogwarts. During this journey there have been magical moments of high drama, genuine warmth and of course no little humour. As the books have progressed however it’s become more real, more edgy and increasingly tense. The challenge for JK Rowling with the Deathly Hallows was whether she could tie it all up and give this impressive series a satisfying conclusion.

Well, to cut what is a long story short she did just that. For anyone that doesn’t know the stories I’ll include no real spoilers but this is a story of its own with twists, turns and mysteries to be solved. Rowling has Harry and the reader questioning the motives and natures of many of the characters and much is kept hanging until very near the end. Her patience in building the back story over the previous books brings rich rewards in terms of several eyebrow raising moments. Highlights for me include the climactic battle including the way in which it is resolved and blessedly redemption for my favourite character in all of the books. The author spends a long time developing the story and this is a bleaker book than the ones that have gone before but no less satisfying for all that. This is, after all, the wizarding world at war, casualties had to be expected!

Stephen Fry brings it all to our ears with consummate professionalism and genuine empathy meaning that I can happily say goodbye to the Potter stories content that I’ve now completed one of modern literature’s great adventures.

Oh Boy!

I love this book so much, there's so much going on in it, so much to learn and digest. The darkness that started a few books ago really comes to the fore in this, not just to do with Voldemort but internal mental darkness. The characters all do so much growing up in this book. I could go on and on but I won't, always....

Any additional comments?

I've listened to the entire series and this was a great conclusion.
I'd never read the books before, only seen the films.
Apart from the cop-out epilogue, I thought it was great definitely worth a listen.
Stephen Fry is fantastic.

Wonderful

Great conclusion to the series wonderfully performed by Stephen Fry. The narration, characterisation and pacing were excellent and really brought the story alive. I've read all seven of the Potter books but this audio version really added something extra - I noticed things I hadn't seen when reading. A definite plus factor in the performance.

The final part

This final episode of the Harry Potter series sees Harry leave school. The story cleverly links through elements of the previous stories. Listening to this audiobook takes hold of your imagination - much better than seeing the films - more detail - greater suspense and more vivid characters. - Great.

A great book to read, but even better with Stephen Fry reading it. He puts so much performance into it with different voices and creates atmosphere.

Sadness.

The first half of this book might be my least favourite, the sense of frustration and despair is passed almost too well to the reader. The second half is one of my favourites, so satisfying to see love beat hate and everything fall into place. Stephen Fry is masterful as the narrator. I'm sad my journey with Harry has ended, but this isn't the first time and it will certainly not be the last.

Fantastic

There are not enough words to describe how amazing this audible book is. Stephen Fry is absolutely phenomenal at bringing every single character to life. Sometimes you forget you're listening to one man reading to you. The heart and soul he has put into this is much appreciated because Harry Potter is a series that deserves such care and attention to detail. The marriage of an extraordinarily gifted person to speak the words of a legendary author is just magic (pardon the pun).

One of my best reads ever..

Stephen Fry would be one of the best narrators available and brings to life each and every character. These books although apparently aimed at the younger audience are equally ,if not more so, enjoyable by a more mature audience. A fantastic read that in one moment can almost bring you to tears and yet soon after have you giggling with laughter. Could not recommend thiese books highly enough.

I liked the adventure and excitement. I didn't like the way Steven Fry did Hermione's voice.
