Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!

I was a little skeptical about audio books at first but soon found myself absolutely enthralled by Stephen Fry's energetic and lively narration. He made me laugh, gasp and miss my tram stop, all while revisiting one of my favourite book series in a new and exciting way.
