My grandmother and young cousins like listening to the Potter series on disc while we're on road trips. Jim Dale does a FABULOUS job narrating these tales, he truly brings the stories to life with unique voices for each character. I would highly recommend these audiobooks for anyone who is a fan of the series.

This was a gift for someone and I was having it shipped to their hotel. Because of this detail, I think the shipping took a little longer than normal. It took about 2 weeks to get to the location. It got there on the last day this person was checking out of their hotel. Perfect timing, but a bit too close for comfort. The product was perfect! Brand new still all sealed up. No problem with the CDs, they play great.

I've been an HP fan since the first book (ordered from Britain) and have enjoyed JKR's adventures for her young wizards, especially since she did not write them as "children's" literature. I find that hearing the words as opposed to reading them changes slightly how I take them in. It's fun to notice new details along the way. Jim Dale has gotten the various character's voices down perfectly, which adds tremendously to the experience of listening to the books. I'm glad I've listened to all the books (via audiobook) as a run-up to the final film. Absolutely amazing world and personalities for one mind to create! The only issue I had with this order was the delivery time: 2 full weeks. Seemed excessive, even for media mail.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. 17 CDs is a lot, but once imported on to my hard drive, it was an easy listen.
2 adults 1 large dog and 1 fourteen year old and a 27 hour drive across 4 states over 3 days - we survived thanks to Harry and company - 17 discs - and we actually drove around for 30 minutes to finish it when we got to our destination - fantastic reading of the book - we have done past Harry Potter boodks on road trips - but this was the longest in both driving and book lenght - but just great!! - works for all ages and it keeps the drive awake and engaged!! The packaging was great for the car - neat and tidy but hearty for the road as well.
