Would you consider the audio edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Book 1 to be better than the print version?
Wow, that's hard. There is, as there always is for me, so much enjoyment in reading for myself with my own timing, like stopping to imagine a scene, re-reading something that made me laugh, etc. But after having read the book, I really enjoyed listening to it.
What about Jim Dale’s performance did you like?
His performance matched pretty closely the way I would have read the book out loud to myself, and you can't ask for more than that!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
It would just be silly to binge listen to such a huge and amazing (magical) story. Enjoy it!

If you could sum up Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Book 1 in three words, what would they be?
Have you listened to any of Jim Dale’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Excellent. If you like this, I recommend his reading of the Books of Beginning Series. This first is the Emerald Atlas. I will say that on the first listen I did not like the portrayal of Hermione. She seemed a little whiny. But I persevered, and now that I am used to it, I am glad I stuck it out.
Any additional comments?
I have listened to these over and over, checking them out from my local library. I have an hour commute each way to and from work, and I have listened to these so many times. I also listen to them at night as I fall alseep to Jim Dale's calm voice. I always wanted to own them, but I just could not afford the price on Pottermore. I don't know what prompted the shift, but I am eternally grateful. This has made my day, my week, my month, and quite possibly my whole year.
