Jim Dale is a LOT of fun!


I haven't read all of the reviews on Harry Potter audio books at Amazon but the ones I found refer to the "paper" books. Then I feel I must pay a special tribute to Jim Dale, the narrator of the audio books. I've read (well, listened) hundreds of audio books and the Harry Potter books are definitely the best. There is no doubt that has a lot to do with the books themselves but Jim Dale's reading adds rich colors to so many characters that they become alive and "jump out of the paper", as a Chinese saying goes. Out of all the media (paper, audio and movie) of Harry Potter books I personally enjoy the audio the most. I never read any Harry Potter until I started listening to book 3(!) by chance. Within 1/2 hour I was hooked. Try it!

Harry potter and the sorcerers stone


Harry Potter and the sorcerers stone was an imajinative, thrilling, and all-age book. J.K Rowling is an amazing author. I love how she describesall the charactores, and how she describes...EVERYTHING! Harry Potter is a boy whose parents werekiled by a very powerful sorcerer. Thet's right, a sorcerer. His name is Lord Voldermort.Harry's mom was a with and his dad was a wizard. The book is about Harry growing up with his uncle Vernun and aunt Petuna Dursley, who never discuss harrys' mom and dad. The Dursleys didn't even tell Harry how his mom and dad died.(The dursleys are motal, or "muggles" as wizards call them.)When Harry is old enough, He finds out about his past,and learns he is a wizard.From a letter that he got from the famouse wizard and witch school, Hogwarts.The letter that he is enrolled into Hoggwarts and his parents left him a lot of wizard money.The story just begins there. The story follows into another two books that are just as fascinating as the first one. I highlysuggest you read this incredible book, and follow Harry' breath takeing adventure.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone


This is a horrible book it's so horrible they shouldn't even sell it. No I'm just kidding this is one of the greatest books I've ever read ( the other HP books are my favorites along with book # 1). I am currently reading this book for the third time and every time I read it I learn something new about Harry.This book has a lot of mysteries and you will never expect the answers. The story goes a little bit slowly so I have taken 1 bazzilionth of a point off for that. Okay back to the book Harry lives with his aunt and uncle ( of whom he hates) along with his fat spoiled cousin Dudley. After a while Harry goes to Hogwarts (wizard and witch craft school) and finds out that somebody's going to steal the Sorceres Stone (elixir of life) and he has to stop them. This is a great book so read it!

Doubles as a fantastic book for kids as well as adults


Incredible imagination interwoven into a fully developed, heartwarming story. J.K. Rowling provides all the excitement and intrigue that make for fun reading, but she also gives us complete characters, friendship, fear and love. You laugh some, you may cry a little bit, but you certainly cannot put the book down. This was a story for my eight-year-old, and I loved it every much as he did. It's lucky for us that J.K. Rowling's scraps of paper made it to the publisher.

The Awsome Harry Potter 3


It is odd how a chance comment on a radio talk show can spark off a train of thought one had long since parked in a siding. So my interest in HP revived when I heard in discussion of children's books the old saw that, " 'Grimm's Fairy Tales' are for children, but some of them are too scary for children" (and, ergo, best avoided, thus leaving no-one to read them). But Harry's adventures are very obviously a modern day fairy tale, seemingly, he did not belong in this Grimm category. This is a curious blindspot, and I did wonder what lay under this attitude. Personally, I hope in due course J.K. Rowling will receive a well-deserved official honour from the government for services to the UK Exchequer (is being made a 'Dame' is equivalent to a 'Sir'?), and she has my warm praise for boosting childhood reading habits, but the literary questions are something else.In Grimm most of the stories really strike home. They deliver justice and come-uppance to bullies, snobs, liars, the greedy, and the self-obsessed. They bestow good endings on the good--rather like Potter's tales. The few dull tales amongst them are either disjointed or too slight, they leave you asking, 'And your point is?'--rather like Potter's tales. So the discerning parent, if worried about the few scary stories in Grimm, will merely avoid reading those few out to the child who is too young for them (Grimm's tales are meant to be spoken, as they are a written record of oral tales, whereas HP is silent reading). And if the child is old enough and bold enough to seek out and read Grimm's Tales independently, then they probably are old enough! But does this tell us what the real 'value system' difference is between the worlds of Grimm and Harry?Harry gets into some murky matters in this book. As promised, the Dark Mark (see chap.9), rises a little stronger as each book is enconjured (q.v., 'learn a Summoning Charm', p.149). However, there is the properly natural magic of 'a hundred Veela...gliding out onto the pitch', casting their near-irresistible cheerleading spell of loveliness on the guys. Then there is that wickedly accurate parody of British journalism, Rita Skeeter of the 'Daily Prophet' (they do like to think they foretell as opposed to just tell), with a Coleopteran sting in the tail. But in fact the overall effect of Voldemort and Co. on the tone of the story is much more maleficent than anything in the venerable Grimm. Even a minor character like Peeves the poltergeist tends to out-grim the traditional tales. ('Peeves the poltergeist, a little man in a bell-covered hat and orange bow-tie, his wide, malicious face contorted with concentration took aim again...Peeves stuck out his tongue...cackling insanely' (p.152-3)). So the wise parent may want to know what it is that really drives these adventures.It is no plot spoiler, as everyone knows by now, to say that there is a death in this book (and it was extensively trailed before release), and of course Grimm's tales, the daily news on TV, and everyday life contain deaths too. The issue is how you handle it in the literature or chosen medium. The death in the Goblet of Fire does not really matter, it is a bit like terminating a crash test dummy. Paradoxically this is the worrying thing: there is no real tragedy in it. We are not made to care about this character before this book in the series came out, and we do not build up any feeling for or against the character during the book. This is the key flaw. We are meant to care about 'the good': the fact that they do not have a good ending is the essence of tragedy. But in this book the Dark is more real, more dynamic, and more exciting than the Good. In fact, the 'good' in this book really tend to mere neutrality, a secular silhouette of goodness. It explains why the magic is so trumpery. Grimm's tales are of course shot through with a real spiritual strength and life (with many a miracle, but no churches, vicars, bibles, or angels), essentially being of medieval European Christian stock. Had I space we could consider the same way that 'Arabian Nights' are from Islamic stock of AD800. So it is the empowering and guiding worldview that is the real difference between Grimm's tales and Potter's, and it is the underlying reason why some would tend to neglect them in favour of Harry. The preference is probably instinctive as much as conscious. But we must ask ourselves what the real test is, which will endure, which will succeed in the long run--bearing in mind Grimm's headstart, which, being long earned, we cannot discount?

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Book 4)
Rawling is magically gifted


I loved reading this book as well as every other so far in the series. The imagery that J.K. Rawlings writes with is unmatched in any literary circle. Hogwarts actually comes alive right in front of you as you read. I could smell Hagrid, I could taste the butter beer, and I could see Professor Snape glaring at Harry during every lesson. She writes with so much description and realness, that even the fantasy realm of Hogwarts seems a reality. This literary technique was really evident, in the chapter in which Rawling described the different tents and souvenirs the witches and wizards were carrying around. From three story flats to peacocks coming out of tents everything had a touch of magic to it. I especially enjoyed the two teams mascots and their stark differences. From the lovely Veela seducing the opposing crowd to the boisterous leprechaun giving a rude, but funny, hand gesture back at the Veela everything had the charm in it that the last three books had. Another thing that Rawling really excels in is her ability to make her characters "round" and not "flat". Most novels just have the main character in three dimension, but Rawling has numerous characters that are as round as Harry. Take for instance the lesser-known characters like Neville Longbottom and Sirius Black, Harry's Godfather. Neville comes to life with his wanting to live up to his slain parent's expectations, while being unbelievably clumsy. Also with Sirius Black, his mystery is great, and I was eagerly awaiting every response he gave to Harry. He shows signs of being the Dad that Harry never had, more like a mentor. Couple the imagery and development of characters with the fast moving twisting plot and you have what makes for a great novel and a fantastic addition to the Harry Potter series.
