Jim Dale's wonderful voice makes this story so nice to listen to on audio cd. Because my favorite books in the series are #1, #6 and #7, I don't often pick up book #2. This has been such a pleasure to listen to when I'm in the car running errands, in my kitchen cooking dinner, or around my home, doing housework. Because of this format, I have revisited details in this book that have played bigger roles in the rest of the series. I've also been reminded how much I love this book, even if it's not my #1 favorite.
I listned to this in one day straight through. The man who was reading story held my attention and it was just really good. I got this for my Grandchildren to listen to in the car on a trip we are going on and I thought I should listen to it first...it was really good. I think they will enjoy it, but I am going to keep it for myself. I never watched the movies, but thats next on my list. I ordered it and it was at my house in the same week. Great service.
I read the books with my kids, who love them (I love them too!) We also enjoy listening to them in the car. This is a wonderful story and the book is MUCH better than the movie. The charming way the book is written keeps my whole family entertained. The man who reads the story has a different voice for each of the character and does a brilliant job. This is a wonderful way to enjoy a Harry Potter story.
I was bidding for a Harry Potter Book on CD through another site, and lost the auction in the last few seconds. I was feeling bad, so I looked for the item on Overstock.com. Not only did they have the item for $5 less than the price on the other site, but they were offering a free shipping coupon. I felt good completing the transaction knowing I was buying from a major company, and not from a stranger in Kansas.
