Publisher's Summary

"There will be three tasks, spaced throughout the school year, and they will test the champions in many different ways...their magical prowess - their daring - their powers of deduction - and, of course, their ability to cope with danger." 

The Triwizard Tournament is to be held at Hogwarts. Only wizards who are over seventeen are allowed to enter - but that doesn't stop Harry dreaming that he will win the competition. Then at Hallowe'en, when the Goblet of Fire makes its selection, Harry is amazed to find his name is one of those that the magical cup picks out. He will face death-defying tasks, dragons, and dark wizards, but with the help of his best friends, Ron and Hermione, he might just make it through - alive! 

Having now become classics of our time, the Harry Potter audiobooks never fail to bring comfort and escapism to listeners of all ages. With its message of hope, belonging, and the enduring power of truth and love, the story of the Boy Who Lived continues to delight generations of new listeners.

Critic Reviews

"To call Dale a 'reader' of books is like saying Monet was a Sunday painter." (Los Angeles Times)

Go with stephen fry's reading

Stephen frys reading is much better than this one. Jim dale uses the same voice for tons of characters and does a poor job of capturing appropriate tones in the dialog given the situation or descriptive text that j.k. Rowling used describing the line(s)

Only one disappointment

I did not care for Jim Dale’s voice. I felt it was a poor choice for the narration.

Hareeeeey!

I LOVE the whole Harry Potter series. Why does this narrator continue to say Harry's name drawn out like "Haaareeeey" when he quotes one of the characters. He does it for Hagrid as well. It is so very annoying.

“Harreeeeeeeeee”

Ive already listened to the first three Harry Potter books on audible after reading the hard covers three times through and watching the movies count less time but they are just as exciting every time I hear the story. The only thing I can’t stand is every time hermione says Harry it sounds like harreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee and I can’t stand it. Other wise everything is great.

Why must all the women be sniveling?

I know it’s sacrilege to say anything against Jim Dale, but why do all the women always sound like their whining? Why can’t Hermione say “Harry” instead of “Harrrrrrrreee”? It’s so upsetting to hear this voice. I wish we could get the Stephen Fry versions in the US.

Sexist narration

The narrator makes the female characters voices sound vapid and frivolous and makes Hermione sound insipid. So annoying. There was no reason for him to imitate feminine voices. He should have used his normal voice.

Meh...

If you haven't gone through the series then this might not make a lot of sense but I am going to let you in on a secret; Harry Potter is a prat!

The character is so much better in the movies than in the book.

That said, it is still a great story but my complaint about Jim Dale as a narrator does not change until I get to book seven.

My recommendation is to power through the series and make up your own mind. Whether you like it or not, it is still a good story.
