An incredible reading!!!

I have been a fan of Harry Potter, or maybe I should say JK Rowling, since the beginning, But never I had enjoyed this book, my favorite of the series, like this before. Mr Fry breathes new, detailed and nuanced life into the characters.
I understood many things that my own reading (one reads faster in silence) did not reveal to me. The movie does not do any justice to the story, even if it is a good movie. Gary Oldman, as passionate an actor as he is, is no match for Mr Fry's careful and believable creation.And his Dumbledore is also a new version of the wise, beautiful old magician. Mr Fry's is more mysterious, more human, incredibly caring. This was lovely. Thank you.

Deeper, Darker, Longer . . . Brilliant!

Did J.K. Rowling overdo it with "The Order of the Phoenix"? You might be forgiven for thinking so. After all this longest book of the series had the shortest amount of film time dedicated to it. So who got it right? Author or Director? It does have to be said that it is a slower moving story and some will conclude that a tougher approach to the editing would have improved it.

I have to disagree though, this is a more grown-up Harry Potter! Full of teenage angst and hormones as he struggles with not just wizardry, evil and fame but also the normal challenges that all young people face. Raging against family, the agonies of a possible first love, the panic created by crucial examinations and discovering that just maybe your parents weren’t quite the perfect role models that you once thought.

Again the narrative to the story takes on an increasingly darker tone and the sense of childish wonder is replaced with a more worldly outlook as befits a growing boy. There are still, of course, lots of moments of humour and warmth as we get to spend an extended amount of time with Harry, Hermione, Ron and the others. The Weasley twins are a particular highlight of this book.

The man faced with this marathon narration is once again the hugely impressive Mr Fry who is extremely easy on the ear. Listen carefully and you can detect a couple of very slightly ragged edges in the character voicings of this one but he still brings great atmosphere and at times a real gravitas to proceedings.

If you have only ever seen the film before this book should be a massive treat! I think the author got it right and it’s the one Potter film where I genuinely feel they didn’t do the book justice at all. Even though it was a fine film in of itself it just doesn’t quite manage to capture the essence of the book as well as the others.

It’s long but don’t be put off, after all who wouldn’t want to spend a few extra hours with this set of characters?

Wonderful way to revisit the Potterverse

Delighted by Stephen Fry's characterisations, mood switchings, and atmospherics as narrator. Stupendous work, loving it.
