We love the Harry Potter audio books. I'd almost rather listen to the audiobooks than read the books since Jim Dale does all the voices so perfectly and in the correct accents :).

If you can JUST get through the first half of this large book the “last half is worth it”! The ending was exciting, as usual, but about 2/3 into the book Fred and George steal the show with some really funny pranks that I can’t wait for my daughter to read!

Warning - the first half just might make you grumpy! I want to call Harry a “flawed” hero in this book cause of his constant lack of anger control or ... is he just being a typical teenager? In this book there’s a lot of arguing and SHOUTING at his friends and even professors! Harry has at times VERY good reasons to be grumpy or mad but it’s rather unpleasant to read. I thought Voldemort would be more to blame about this but not really... Also, his clueless attempts at talking to or understanding Cho were laughable but I’m sure quite common behavior for a typical boy!

I would have to say that I wish there could have been more edited out of the 1st half to make this book shorter.

Still this is a very superior child/YA book and worthwhile series to read! Look forward to seeing the movie now then eventually reading the next.

Agreed. Jim Dale is truly an incredible narrator! He really brings the characters to life. This series is well served by the audiobook medium.
