Eleven-year-old Harry Potter was a baby when his parents died, and since that time he has been living with his horrible Uncle Vernon, dislikable Aunt Petunia, and truly disgusting cousin Dudley. Miserable and lonely, Harry is shocked when he receives a letter inviting him to attend the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. At this special school, which is kept a secret from all those not involved in the worlds of magic, Harry begins to learn the truth about the death of his parents and discovers his own unbelievably amazing family history. This book is the first entry in the phenomenally popular Harry Potter series of books. Enjoyed by both children and adults, these books literally changed the face of children's publishing when, as a result of their stunning popularity, the New York Times began compiling and publishing a list of best-selling children's books--for the first time in that newspaper's history.
This is a classic. Unabridged recording of the first in the Harry Potter series. This spoken word book is done by Jim Dale who has a great voice for a variety of characters and a pleasant accent for the story set in England. He is a professional and pleasure to listen to, he does the voice for all recordings in this series. The story of the young Harry and his realization of magic, power of magic, culture of magic life is colorful, well imagined, and a breath of fresh air to spend time with. A wonderful enjoyment!

The Harry Potter series are all classic books that everyone should at least try to read. From Book 1 where you are learning all about the magical world that J.K. Rowling has created you become hooked! The movies are great, but they have NOTHING on the books!
