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.

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!

Love a good Fry up!

Any additional comments?

If you're a Harry Potter Fan, you need to hear the books read by Fry. He brings a new level of magic to the fantasy that is Harry Potter.

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.

Brilliant listening.

Stephen Fry made this book great listening.
He keeps you engaged and in suspense. I will be buying the rest of the series. Great for all age ranges.

Spooky!

Often called the weakest in the series by critics, I personally loved it. Decent, if not brilliant story and Mr. Fry's voice as usual does its own magic.

Slightly contrived ending with Dobby the house elf, but that's me being super picky. All in all, well worth leaving the Muggle world for..

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 does it yet again

The Harry Potter series are my favorite. I love the adventures, the characters and just everything.
Stephen Fry is an amazing narrator and he does a great job with this book. I enjoyed it even better than reading it myself.

Way Better than I Remembered

This Harry Potter entry is tipically considered the worst (among the main HP books). Even so, it's incredibly good. All I'm saying is that even Rowling's weakest entry is absolutely phenomenal! I have no complaints at all. I was so entranced that I couldn't stop until I finished.

Sorprendente!

Mi menos favorito, aunque me gusto. No es tan novedoso como el primero, y es un poco lento.
De todas maneras es igualmente recomendable. Esta re lectura me hizo apreciarlo mucho mas!
