"A marriage made in heaven, Stephen Fry reading Harry Potter." (The Times)
"I put off reading this series......the hype "children's books" anyway I am so pleased to say I absolutely love them so far !"
Stephen Fry - unbelievably Brilliant .
The storyline - unbelievably Brilliant .
Overall performance - Bluddy Brilliant.
... wha ? The app box is telling my review is only 3 words long so now I have to type this so it re of uses mooooooore Woooords .
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
I loved this book/audible.
I loved the way it was read and I love the story.
I recommend this book to people who like mystery and magic and great a great story line and awesome narrating.
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.
The book has so much more details than the movie, I recommend listening to it. The narrator was amazing!!!!!!! I am INLOVE with the book series ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
it is AMAZINGGGGGGG ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
I've read the books many times, but Stephen Fry takes them to a new level every time. Enjoyed every part of it.
Especially the part where the narrator is quoting Basilisk - the voice chills blood to the core. Bravo !!!
"Enjoyable story, great narration."
This book is very entertaining and Stephen Fry's narration is wonderful.
I especially enjoy the further characterisation of the cast surrounding the main trio.
It does however fall into a strange mid-spot between light and dark that lessen the engagement for me slightly.
"Why can't I stop listening?"
I have a truck load of books waiting to be read and heard but I find myself reaching out for the Harry Potter Audio books series. I think I will listen to the whole thing..... Again.
I love that the book is not read in a single, monotonous voice. I've said this before but he gets Hagrid and Vernon on point. "Oh potter you rotter" had a tune to it too hahaha. I enjoy listening to Stephen Fry.
"Amazing Stephen Fry"
I cannot express enough how brilliant Stephen Fry is in his reading of the iconic Harry Potter books. He breathes new life to the tales of our favourite wizard.
I love this book hope the others be good as this one nice story and good characters
How wouldi put it... The book was just briliant! Looking foward on the third. Must read!
"Stephen fry performance was excellent"
I hope audible will return the rest of Harry Potter books read by Stephen Fry .
I already listened to the first two and would like to continue the series with his narration .
"at long last harry potter has come to audible"
as a massive fan of the harry potter books, I'm thrilled that the rights for the audio books have been released to audible.
Stephen fry is a superb narrator for this series. he captures all the elements perfectly. the audio books are better than the written nor due to Stephen Fry's excellent narration
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!
"A must listen"
Stephen Fry is magnificent....... all Harry Potter fans this is a must listen to masterpiece.
"Harry does it again!"
Another good book with Stephen Fry narrating it in fantastic style. It's always hard to pinpoint a favourite section of J.K.R's Harry Potter books and as most people have read the printed book or seen the films there is not much chance of spoiling, I will say I felt sorry for the whomping willow!
"Really good, Very good indeed."
Stephen Fry, J.K Rowling, Harry Potter. Simply brilliant cannot recommend this enough. All these books are so well narrated I cant see anyone not enjoying them if you enjoyed the books (or even as a first time performance).
They've finally reached Audible & it was worth the wait. An essential purchase read beautifully by Stephen Fry.
"Step into a magical world."
Whether encountering Rowling's magical world for the first time or the one hundredth time this tale of magic, friendship and hope doesn't fail to captivate. Wonderfully read by Stephen Fry this book transports listeners, young and old alike, to a world where magic is real, sport is played on broom sticks and the post is delivered by owls.
"Brilliant! Perfectly Narrated by Stephan Fry"
It is already one of the best audiobooks I've listened to, I have the first Harry Potter book on CD's but this is so much easier to listen to without having to change the CD over.
The best thing about the Chamber Of Secrets is Dobby and the way Stephan Fry reads the story, changing his voice for each character.
I have listened to the Philosophers Stone - read by Stephan Fry but again they were CD's and I needed to change them every so often. They are both really well read and something I will want to listen to again.
Yes definitely! Sadly i couldn't but i'm glad I could bookmark where I was listening.
I would definitely recommend Audible and the Harry Potter series
They have finally put these on audiobook store very expensive 18 chapters of 30 minuts each it is worth it I've waited ages for these books 10 hours 8 minutes awesome first audoibook is good asswell
Stephen Fry made this book great listening.
He keeps you engaged and in suspense. I will be buying the rest of the series. Great for all age ranges.
