Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Harry is destined for greatness.” New York Times
“A charming, imaginative, magical confection of a novel.” Boston Globe
“Jim Dale, with his fully voiced reading, brings the world of wizards to life in ways unimagined even by those who have read and re-read the book. The accents are sure, the inflections perfectly suit the characters, and some of Rowling’s particularly inventive bits, like the game of Quidditch, become clearer. Sometimes poignant, often funny, Dale’s interpretation of this enchanted other world is the consummate family-listening experience. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Whether or not you've read about Harry, this unabridged audiobook brings his world to life. Reader Jim Dale brings an excellent range of voices to the characters.” Amazon.com
“A brilliantly imagined and beautifully written fantasy…Rowling’s wonderful ability to put a fantastic spin on sports, student rivalry, and eccentric faculty contributes to the humor, charm, and, well, delight of her utterly captivating story.” Booklist
