Audio Book: Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
Narrator: Stephen Fry
Length: 20 hrs 45 min
It is Harry Potter's sixth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. As Voldemort's sinister forces amass and a spirit of gloom and fear sweeps the land, it becomes more and more clear to Harry that he will soon have to confront his destiny. But is he up to the challenges ahead of him? In this dark and breathtaking adventure, J.K. Rowling skilfully begins to unravel the complex web she has woven, as we discover more of the truth about Harry, Dumbledore, Snape and, of course, He Who Must Not Be Named
I have a confession to make...I've not read the last 2 books in the Harry Potter series. Until now! I was very excited to get into this audio book. I knew nothing about it. I purposefully didn't see the film so I wouldn't ruin the book when I finally did read it. I went in blind.
This book is so full of adventure!I'm practically obsessed with this world. To be fair, I think most people are. It is so creative and eevrything about it intrigues me.
The narration is very good. I think Stephen Fry is getting better. I'm really feeling the different character voices he's created. It truly is an enjoyable audio book. I'm listening while I do my chores and it helps me take my mind off the mundane. Totally worth it to me.
You need to add Harry Potter to your list of audio book must haves. I'm blown away! One more book! How will it all end?! I don't know, I've not read it or seen the film so don't tell me anything!
