Stephrn fry is the best narrator by far he makes u feel every word and as for jk Rowling of all the books the final book comes to a dramatic conclusion with many sad and happy turns remember light can be found in the darkest of places if one only remembers to turn on the light I would highly reccomend the Harry potter books to anyone old and young I hope someday my kids are as spell bounded as I have been


To all you harry potter fns out there and to you jk Rowling thank you for such. A magical journey

You'll lose a lot of sleep.... Ralph does. At first he starts waking up earlier. And earlier. Then the hallucinations start - the colours, shapes and strange auras. Not to mention the bald doctors who always turn up at the scene of a death. That's when Ralph begins to lose a lot more than sleep. When he begins to understand why his hitherto mild-mannered friend, Ed, is getting out of control - dangerously so. And why his hometown is about to become the new Armageddon....
