Harry Potter is an ordinary boy who lives in a cupboard under the stairs at his Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon's house, which he thinks is normal for someone like him who's parents have been killed in a 'car crash'. He is bullied by them and his fat, spoilt cousin Dudley, and lives a very unremarkable life with only the odd hiccup (like his hair growing back overnight!) to cause him much to think about. That is until an owl turns up with a letter addressed to Harry and all hell breaks loose! He is literally rescued by a world where nothing is as it seems and magic lessons are the order of the day. Read and find out how Harry discovers his true heritage at Hogwarts School of Wizardry and Witchcraft, the reason behind his parents mysterious death, who is out to kill him, and how he uncovers the most amazing secret of all time, the fabled Philosopher's Stone! All this and muggles too. Now, what are they?

It´s simply not possible to give this book less than 5 stars. The story is magical and Stephen Fry´s narration is perfection.

5.0 Re-reading, Listening Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
I love Harry Potter and I love the stories. I will watch the movies whenever they show up on tv and I decided that I wanted to read the story in Spanish (trying to learn the language) and I am trying to knit or crochet and listen to Jim Dale reading the story. He makes the story come alive. I had ba...

4.5 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
If you are a fan of Harry Potter and have never listened to one of the audiobooks read by Jim Dale, check one out if you can. Rowling's writing makes for easy listening. And Jim Dale is a brilliant reader. Books one through four were bedtime listening when I was a kid. This proved to be dangerous...
