This is a must listen to for anyone who loves a well read story. You will be begging Stephen Fry to narrate your life after hearing just the first few paragraphs.

I'm from Canada, so I'm used to reading the original version and its neat to hear how they changed it in the American version. However it's surprising to hear some words they didn't change, which are so clearly British. The reader does wonderful character voices. I love that he uses a Scottish accent for Professor McGonagall and the sorting hat. I also love that he sang the school song. A very enjoyable "read."

I felt like I must have been about the last person on earth to not have read this book. I was staying away because I'm not a big fan of fantasy but I thoroughly enjoyed the story read by Jim Dale. Will definitely continue with the series.

I'm a baby of the 90's, so I grew up within this magical world and I consider these characters my oldest friends. This is the first time I've listened to the audiobook, and Jim Dale's narration is just as fantastic as everyone says. This is a great format to re-read the books in or experience them for the first time!

If you want to revisit the Harry Potter series this is a great start via audiobook.

Order it today!
Jim Dale creates a superb narration for this magnificent series.
The Sorcerer’s Stone is the first in this seven-part saga,
the first British fantasy novel ever to compare with Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings.
This series has single-handedly restored the value of reading
to an entire generation of young people,
for which the author has been quite properly awarded both
The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire
and The Order of the Companions of Honour.
And speaking of things British,
the UK audiobook is read by Stephen Fry
and is equally as engaging and entertaining as Jim Dale’s version.
Highly recommended.

I can't believe it's taken me this long to get to the Harry Potter series. For some reason I always stood far enough away from the crowd to keep me skeptical. Boy, am I ashamed now. This book was absolutely fantastic. The humor was sharp, the mental images were clear, and the voice was distinct.

It's taken me some time, but consider me a believer in the Potterverse... I'm all in!

Jim Dale to the rescue! As a children's librarian, I've felt ashamed that I could never get through this classic. I tried reading the first chapter several times over the years, and it was just meh. A colleague recommended listening to the audiobook, narrated by Jim Dale. Hooray! I finally got through it - and I loved it. Now I finally get all the Harry Potter cultural references and jokes! Thank you, Jim Dale!

"The truth." Dumbledore sighed. "It is a beautiful and terrible thing, and should therefore be treated with great caution."
