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!

In my opinion, Stephen Fry is the best narrator ever. His voice acting was marvellous and helped build scenes and characters in my mind very vividly.

Once you start it, its very hard to put it down. Its addictive!! I might listen to it again once i get thru the series.

I am on to the next book now.

At 17 years old, Mattie Hathaway has survived her mother attempting to kill her, multiple foster homes, and a serial killer. Oh, and she sees ghosts on a regular basis too. You’d think Fate would give her a break right? Umm…nope, not Mattie. Dan Richards is the only person in the entire world Mattie trusts, but then the boy goes and breaks her heart. Mattie does what she does best, she runs and lands herself slap in the middle of a haunted house full of ghosts turned vengeful that want Mattie to join their ranks.

Simply amazing and the build up was perfect. It took a while though to get used to the author's writing style. It was a bit hard to follow in the start, switching back and forth between present, a year ago, two years ago, many many years ago. But it was all worth it.

Normally, Mattie just ignores the ghosts and they go away. That is until she see's the ghost of her foster sister... Sally. Everyone thinks Sally's just another runaway, but Mattie knows the truth-she's dead. Murdered. Mattie feels like she has to help Sally, but she can't do it alone. Against her better judgment, she teams up with a young policeman, Officer Dan, and together they set out to discover the real truth behind Sally's disappearance.

Thoroughly enjoyed the story and style of writing. The teenage drama could be a bit annoying sometimes otherwise its fast paced and got me hooked from the start. Definitely reading the next one.
