I did like this audiobook, however, I was expecting more of a Bathilda Bagshot version as opposed to an actual history of magic. Other than that, it was interesting, informative and inspirational.

Disappointed but I still love it.

I say I’m disappointed but I think it’s because I expect so much from the series because I adore it and J. K. Rowling. Though the book was underwhelming, as it’s more of an informative book than a novel, I still loved it. I love learning about all the magical creatures, especially with Eddie Redmayne as Newt.

Heart wrenching

I’ve always loved the Harry Potter series but I don’t think I’ve ever connected with it as completely as when Stephen Fry read this book. Overall, perfection.

Stephen Fry does it again - he makes J. K. Rowling’s words come to life and somehow made Chamber of Secrets even more amazing than I already knew it to be. I’m obsessed.

First Audiobook, ever!

I am so happy I purchased this as my first ever audiobook. Not only am I a fan of the Harry Potter series, I am also a big fan of Stephen Fry and I personally feel he made the story even better with his quirky style. The voices he created and just his way of reading J. K. Rowling’s words in general brought the story to life and I’m just absolutely in love.
