『Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone』は傑作で、その成功ぶりがさかんに報じられているが、Fryの朗読を聞くまではこの最高の魔法物語を体験したとは言えない。他のオーディオブックと同様、ドライブに最適。本をあまり読みたがらない人にハリー・ポッターの魔法を体験させるのにも理想的な方法だ。（対象年齢9歳以上）（Susan Harrison, Amazon.co.uk）
This release is complete and unabridged with not a word added nor a word taken out.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
this first instalment of the Harry Potter adventures is available on both cassette and CD with Stephen Fry as the narrator.
A review from The Times said that "Stephen Fry is your Potter-perfect narrator" and The Guardian considers that "Fry's reading is sublime".
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone made history when it was broadcast in its entirety on Boxing Day 2000 on Radio 4.
I became smitten with the characters almost instantly. How imaginative the author is! The story is good for adults, too.
The artwork on the cover is so much better than the original book which is red. There are illustrations around the chapter headings too which adds a special something. The paper in this book is a lot firmer and of better quality. It's bigger in length than my original one by about 100 pages but that's probably just a printing difference. There isn't anything additional. I think there was a map in the front of mine but I 'm unsure.
Fab read of course.
My Granddaughter is 8yrs old but her 12 year old cousin has read all bar books 6 &7 and she thinks she can too. I'm sure if she finds them hard to understand then she will stop reading them. I'm happy she's reading, she's happy to read H.P. & the Philosophers Stone. All is well!
I just love this book right from the start and even though it isn't as exciting and edge of your seat as the other books are, yet there is that excitement you feel along with Harry in Chapter 4 when Hagrid turns up in the shack during the storm to give him the good news and I don't think any Harry Potter fan could ever fail to feel the excitement along with Harry as he and Hagrid go to Diagon Alley and he buys his books and other material he'll need for his time at Hogwarts. I love it when his vault at Gringots is opened and he sees all the money his parents have left him. I love the background we get to the Dursleys in the first chapter and the description of the day which eventually leads to his arrival at Privet Drive. As we read this book, we need to be aware how little Harry knows and we get an idea of how he's feeling as he awaits his sorting on his arrival at the school. As the Dursleys fight a losing battle when the letters start coming (and increasing with each delivery, ending with about a hundred at the hotel, you just know that, even though they're eventually in a place where Uncle Vernon's certain they won't be disturbed, that by hook or by crook Dumbledore will eventually get him to Hogwarts. As he tells Mrs Cole in Book 6, they'll be taking Tom Riddle away whatever. So Harry begins this roller coaster adventure throughout the seven books and he will not only need his friends but all the magical training he can get, especially in Defence against the dark arts which will be important as he must face the wizard who has not only attempted to kill him but has eluded capture by the Ministry of Magic.
Finally I got around to read it and found it was far better than I imagined. Completely different to the impression I had in my head about it.
I am so late to the party there is little I can say about it, but if you are like me and still at the thinking about it stage then buy this book and you wont be disappointed.
They should make a movie about this! In fact, the story lends itself very well for a sequel.
This isn't the first time I've read Harry Potter. It's one of those books that fails to get old and you can read over and over again. It's not the best written book out there but it's more the way it's written that intrigues so many. The magic behind the magic.
The characters in this book are funny, courageous, fiercely loyal and very endearing. It's hard not to love them. My favourite is Professor Snape with his villainous charm but I think deep down he's a softy.
It's hard to believe that a book aimed at the younger audience would be able to capture and charm an adult while still being able to intrigue a child/adolescent but this book manages to do that. The story grips you almost from the very start and leaves you guessing. I still can't be able to figure out who's behind it all.
The book is a present for my child that loves Harry Potter and has seen all the films, but now when she is older (10 years old) she wants to read all the books too. I was between buying a full set with the box that is more expensive or buying separate books from this company - cheaper option especially that this book came in an offer.
I have ordered book 1 and 2 to check if it is worth it.
I am very happy to say that it is, I have order the rest of the series.
- good size that can be held by a child or adult for a long time
- weight - I have now only book 1 and 2 - they are slimmer than the following books but this version has a paper cover and light weight pages so the book is on the lighter side and good for kids
- paper quality is good. The books that I bought had all their pages, the bonding is holding them in and does not feel like they will fall out any time soon
- size and spaces between the words is very comfortable for my eyes and I can read it without glasses
- illustration that is on the cover is very nice and definitely in the Harry Potter style
- very good delivery time and I can have all 7 books for £30 with all the promotions I have got on them:)
I hope you will like my review, if you found it useful please hit ‘Helpful’. It will make my day:)XX
I loved this book as it makes you imagine what it would be like to have that experience of being at Hogwarts, it really takes you away into a magical world. The highlight for me was the fantastic setting of Hogwarts, it seemed so real but as I’ve now seen the film it was an even clearer picture. The only negative point for me about this book was that I couldn’t put it down! The great thing about the book is it allows children to escape into a new world of magic and adventure . I would recommend this book to people aged 9 - 99!
I guarantee it will take you into a magical world.
