Ever since I knew audible book, Stephen Fry is one of my favorite story readers. He differentiate his voice for so many roles. I enjoyed every story and I was brought to the set. Never failed.
Harry Potter is one among favorite books and JK Rowling is at her best when she created the whole set.
The graveyard scene is thrilling, and heart breaking at the same time.

This is the book where I think JK Rowling really decided to get a bit more serious. If the previous book had a slightly harder edge this took that further and added more depth and sophistication. While the opening books were genuinely full of child-like joy and adventure this one upped the ante considerably. Of course this one is still full of the by now expected warm humour and interplay between the characters plus the clever placing of traditional fantasy ideas of wizardry into the modern world. This is still about schoolchildren growing up and their relationships with each other and their teachers as well as all the sorcery. The humanity of the books and the way they reflect some of the serious, and also some of the less serious issues within our modern societies remains and is developed still further.
The story does take its time in building to a climactic battle and includes a few quite unexpected twists, not much is quite as it seems at Hogwarts! The tri-wizard cup is a major feature and includes some of the most exciting scenes in the Harry Potter series particularly I thought the second task which takes place under water.
For those who have previously only come to Harry Potter via the films then this audiobook will be a huge treat. The films were excellent but there is so much more to discover in this volume. Notable parts that were missing from the film include the Quidditch World Cup Final match, Hermione’s civil rights campaign and lots of trademark Rowling character interactions which explain them and what they do in much greater depth. They do make the story considerably longer but it never drags as a result! This is of course in part due to the excellence of Mr Fry. I will admit that I can’t help thinking about the deliciously evil Alan Rickman delivering Severus Snape’s sardonic malevolence but in truth Stephen Fry carries the stories as beautifully as I can imagine a single narrator being capable of.
Once again, in summary, a quite delightful use of a credit!

I have enjoyed every single second of this book. Stephen Fry has done it again. His mastery of voices and accents makes you forget you're listening to the book being read by one man. Amazing talent. Thoroughly enjoyable. Of course he has fantastic material to work with, JK Rowling's writing is clever, witty and pure imagination. Wonderful
