Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

Now that the last one’s out, I reckoned that it was time to give these another go. Stephen Fry reads these audio books and is very good. I read the first two back in the late 90s but got bored with them. It’s more enjoyable to have Stephen read them to me I think – very entertaining.

As for the story, well, it’s predictable and essentially not terribly gripping, but it is a kids’ book after all. I like it well enough to listen to the rest of them and, having two young ‘uns, it’s a reasonable assumption that these will be a good investment.

When all’s said and done, knowing what I know of the series, I prefer the Narnia chronicles and even the Hobbit. That might change as I get through the series though, you never know.

So, bring on the Chamber!
