NOTE: These “reviews” are as simple as it gets (and mostly for tracking purposes)! They will have a rating, first thought, narrator thought (quick), and will officially be filed 🙂 Listened for Fun (Audible) Overall Rating: 4.00 Story Rating: 3.75 Character Rating: 4.25 Audio Rating: 4.00 (not part of the overall rating) First Thought when Finished: The Harvesting is a story that grew on me over the course of the story and I am very curious as to where it is heading! Quick Thoughts: This was a Dewey’s Read-a-Thon listen and I was scared in the beginning that I had selected wrong. I didn’t particular like the characters and quite frankly was hoping some of them would die (like major ones). However as the story progressed and the “world” got worse–the writing really hooked me. I can’t say that I love any of the characters but they are fitting for what is going on. This book took 3 turns that I didn’t expect and the end had me wondering where exactly they were going now. I will continue the series because I just have to know! Audio Thoughts Narrated By Kristin James / Length: 7 hrs and 7 mins I […]
Narrator: Jim Dale
Stephen Fry & Jim Dale
I will admit that these two go hand in hand for me. I own both versions of Harry Potter in audiobook (UK and US) and honestly I can’t pick which one of these two extraordinary narrators is better. I tend to listen to Jim Dale for years 1 to 4 and Stephen Fry for years 5 to 7. That being said, no matter how you do it –listening to the stories in audio adds a rich layer that can’t be denied. I highly recommend both versions on audio. Go forth and listen–you won’t be disappointed!

NOTE: July 2013 marks my “Gosh I don’t know how many times I have read this book” annual Re-Read of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets! I will be changing all my ratings of this series to 5 because I have come to the conclusion that if I can re-read them this many times they are worthy of a 5!

My Review (REPOSTED): I will be changing all my ratings of this series to 5 because I have come to the conclusion that if I can re-read them this many times they are worthy of a 5!
I love Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. It is great to be introduced to the characters and how their friendships were formed. I have to say one of my favorite moments is learning how the 3 kids became friends because there are some things you just share that you cannot help but become friends and Downing Mountain Trolls are one of them. This is one of my favorite series to read and love my annual re-reading of them. If you are one of the few that have not read the books–you really should whether your young or young at heart!
