A little scarier than the first Harry Potter book. These books just get better and better. Harry is packing for his second year at Hogwarts when an elf named Dobby finds him and warns him that if he returns to Hogwarts he'll be in trouble!!
I enjoyed listening to Jim Daly read this book. He's very good at distinguishing voices for the various characters. The story itself isn't one of my favorites of the Harry Potter series, but it's a pleasant listen (I just don't recommend listening to some parts while eating)
I absolutely LOVE the narrator for all of the Harry Potter books-on-tape. He uses a different voice for each character and his reading style is easily the most enjoyable I've heard from this kind of media.
If you don't have time to sit down and read, or if you want something to listen to during a long trip of commute, the Harry Potter books-on-tape are perfect!
