Publisher's Summary

"Bienvenido al autobús noctámbulo, transporte de emergencia para el brujo abandonado a su suerte. Alargue la varita, suba a bordo y lo llevaremos a donde quiera." 

Cuando el autobús noctámbulo aparece en medio de la oscuridad y se detiene frente a Harry Potter, marca el inicio de otro año fuera de lo común para el joven mago. Sirius Black, asesino en serie y seguidor de Lord Voldemort, está prófugo y los rumores dicen que viene por Harry. En su primera clase de adivinación, la profesora Trelawney ve un presagio de muerte en las hojas de té de Harry... Pero quizás lo más aterrador de todo es que los Dementores patrullan los terrenos de la escuela, con su beso que succiona el alma...

Please note: This audiobook is narrated in Spanish with a Latin American accent.

Mejor que el narrador en Inglés

Tengo todos los audios en Inglés y empecé a adquirir los de español para mi mamá, grata sorpresa fue descubrir que este narrador es mucho, pero mucho mejor que la versión en Inglés al cual tolero solo porque es HP. La espera por los siguientes libros me está matando

Great story+translation, mediocre production

This review is essentially the same as my reviews for the other Carlos Ponce audiobooks currently available.
The story is wonderful. I have PoA among my top 3 favorites from the series (4, 6, 3, 1, 2, 7, 5 don't @ me)

I'm approaching these audiobooks as a native English speaker and learner of Spanish. As a learning aid, I 100% recommend these audiobooks--the narration+accent is clear and comprehensible. I did the same when learning German (using the absolutely amazing Rufus Beck audiobooks from Audible) and got great results.

I've marked the performance down for a couple of reasons. First, Carlos Ponce does a great job with character voices, and puts good energy into his delivery, but tends to deliver almost all dialogue the same. I mean, if there's one thing J.K. Rowling is known for as an author, it's adverbs--every single piece of dialogue comes with instructions, so to speak. But whether Filch "screamed" or Hermione "whispered" or Dumbledore said "calmly", Ponce delivers them all roughly the same.

My second problem might not lie with Ponce, but with the production: the text is barely given any time to breathe. Scene changes within chapters (something happens, then we transition to our heroes discussing it in the Common Room or whatever) receive absolutely no pause/signaling, which can be really jarring. Momentous or climactic events are not read or edited dramatically, but almost rushed through. Much of the last 90 minutes of the book (Dementor attack/Time Turner rescue) can be hard to follow because big moments and powerful lines aren't allowed time to land. This might be on Ponce as the narrator, but (along with the same-y dialogue) it feels like a lack of production/preparation--like they handed Ponce the book and had him do it all in roughly one take, without allowing him to get a feel for the rhythm of the text.

This stuff might sound like nit-picking, but it's at the core of what separates good oral story-telling from great oral story-telling. Without the text in front of us, we are reliant on the narrator to give us a sense of when tension is rising or falling, and where the narrative climax falls. This isn't just for entertainment, but to actually make sense of the events as they happen. The Pottermore/Rufus Beck German editions of these books do a phenomenal job of this.

Overall, while I enjoyed this audiobook, it could have been a lot better.
Also, tiniest nitpick, but Ponce makes Sirius sound like a goblin in this book. Weird.

Genial! A por el 4to libro!

Sólo me gustaría que hubieran puesto música ambiental de fondo, como de tormenta, en la biblioteca alguna fogata o simplemente ruidos de bosque. Pero igual, super bien !

Come for Rowling, stay for Ponce!

Again, the performance of Carlos Ponce is PHENOMENAL. He brings Rowling’s world to life with his varied and delightful renditions of each character. In particular, his performance of Snape, Dumbledore, and Ron Weasley are outstanding: I couldn’t imagine a better voice to give life to those characters.
