“If you are a Harry Potter fan this is a must listen to. Eddie Redmayne did a great job and copies the inflections from his performance as Newt in the movie with the same name. This is not a novelization of the film but more supplementary to it.” Nicholas, Audible listener.
“...for the Harry Potter fan, having one of the schoolbooks of Harry, himself, is a must! It reads like a encyclopedia, which it should, and having Eddie Redmayne narrate is the best possible choice as he IS Newt Scamander.” Renee, Audible listener.
Between 2001 and 2011 the Harry Potter series was adapted for film. The seven Harry Potter books became eight movies, starring Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter, Emma Watson as Hermione Granger, and Rupert Grint as Ron Weasley.

Rowling is the recipient of many awards and honours, notably receiving an Order of the British Empire (OBE) for services to children’s literature. She is the founder of children’s charity Lumos, which works to end the systematic institutionalisation of children. Rowling lives in Edinburgh with her family.
“I would recommend the Harry Potter series to anyone young (or young at heart). I would also recommend this as a great introductory audiobook for those newly subscribed to Audible. Stephen Fry brilliantly encapsulates the soul of the Harry Potter saga and his background in literature and acting shines through his flawless narration. The imagination, detail, and heart put into this series transcends age and it is for this reason it is already a modern classic beloved not only by children, but adults who wish to feel that wonder again.” Antony, Audible listener.
“A good old fashioned detective story. I couldn't stop listening to this novel. Great storyline that wasn't stretched in length but the perfect amount of detail. Great characters, read beautifully.” Anna, Audible listener.
“This is my first experience of Robert Glenister as a narrator and my goodness what a find. His voice characterisations are pure excellence, bringing the written characters to life in the most natural of ways. I'll definitely be seeking him out again in the future.” Jacqui, Audible listener.
