Publisher's Summary

"'There is a plot, Harry Potter. A plot to make most terrible things happen at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry this year.'"

Harry Potter's summer has included the worst birthday ever, doomy warnings from a house-elf called Dobby, and rescue from the Dursleys by his friend Ron Weasley in a magical flying car! Back at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for his second year, Harry hears strange whispers echo through empty corridors - and then the attacks start. Students are found as though turned to stone.... Dobby's sinister predictions seem to be coming true.

©1998 J.K. Rowling (P)2015 J.K. Rowling

    "A Delight!"

    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!

    "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!

    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).

    "Brilliant! Perfectly Narrated by Stephan Fry"
    Where does Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Book 2 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The best thing about the Chamber Of Secrets is Dobby and the way Stephan Fry reads the story, changing his voice for each character.


    Have you listened to any of Stephen Fry’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes definitely! Sadly i couldn't but i'm glad I could bookmark where I was listening.


    Any additional comments?

    I would definitely recommend Audible and the Harry Potter series

    "Couldn't be better"

    Timeless story and wonderful narration by no other than Stephen Fry. I've been enchanted into these books after seeing the film's and never managing to read through all of them as a child. Listening to them on audible is continuing to be, a great experience.

    "Finally in my favourite audiobook app"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    What's to say? It's Harry Potter. Not only the greatest of boy wizards but one of the most amazing world's to explore. Plus it is read by Stephen Fry who is just incredible.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Book 2?

    Dobby and the sock of course.


    Have you listened to any of Stephen Fry’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to a lot of readings by Stephen Fry and he is a master of the genre. His Harry Potter books are amongst his best.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    See memorable moments. But also the blossoming of the friendship between the three main protagonists.


    Any additional comments?

    It is wonderful to finally have Harry Potter available on Audible. I already had the readings on CD but to be able to listen to it within the Audible app, plus the extra production touches that come from Audible make it an amazing way to experience the story.

    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 !!!
