What is the Unveiling the Magic Blog?
The Harry Potter series is one of the most popular books ever written, and there are an infinite number of audiobooks to choose from. However, not all audiobooks are created equal. In this article, we will be discussing our honest thoughts on some of the best Harry Potter audiobooks out there.
Why Review Audiobooks?
Audiobooks are a great way to improve your reading skills and enjoy a good story at the same time. Reviewing audiobooks can help you learn how to give a fair and honest review and can also help you find new audiobooks to listen to. Here are some reasons why reviewing audiobooks is a good idea:
You Can Learn How to Give a Fair and Honest Review
Audiobook reviews can be tough to write, especially if you’re not familiar with the story or the cast of characters. By reviewing audiobooks, you can learn how to provide an unbiased opinion of the story. You can also learn how to critique the audio production in addition to the story itself.
You Can Find New Audiobooks to Listen To
Not only will reviewing audiobooks help you develop critical thinking skills, but it will also help you find new audiobooks to listen to. By giving honest reviews, you’ll be helping other readers make informed decisions about which books they should read. And who knows? You might even find a new favorite book this way!
How Do I Review Audiobooks?
If you’re a fan of audiobooks, there’s no need to feel ashamed. Audiobooks are all the rage these days and there are plenty of great ones out there. If you’re looking for an honest review of some audiobooks that you may be considering, look no further! This is what I’ll do:
First, before we get into the nitty gritty of each audiobook, let’s take a quick look at the different types of audiobooks. There are classic audiobooks which are narrated by actors/actresses and can be found in physical form on shelves or used online. Then, there are unabridged versions which typically have more content than their condensed counterparts and lastly, there are audio books on CD or digital downloads.
Another thing to consider is the format. Some audiobooks can only be listened to on certain devices while others can be streamed or downloaded to multiple devices. For example, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was originally read by British actor Ron Perlman but has been performed by numerous other actors since its release in 1997 including Audra McDonald (Hogwarts professors), David Bradley (Albus Dumbledore), Emma Thompson (Luna Lovegood), Robbie Coltrane (Ginny Weasley) and Alison Sudol ( Hermione Granger).
Now that we’ve covered all that important stuff, let’s get down to business:
Harry Potter Audiobook Reviews
When it comes to Harry Potter audiobooks, fans have a lot of choices. Fans of the series can choose between reading the books themselves or listening to them on audio. The choice is up to each individual listener. With that in mind, here are some honest reviews of Harry Potter audiobooks.
The first book in the series, “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” was read by Emma Watson and produced by David Heyman. Watson did a great job with her narration, but this audiobook may not be for everyone. If you are not familiar with British accents or slang, this audiobook may be difficult to follow.
The second book, “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone,” was narrated by Stephen Fry and was more user friendly because he used a standard British accent. However, this audiobook does have its share of glitches including poor sound quality at times and an overall lack of excitement during some key scenes.
For the third book, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1,” James Phelps narrated instead of Fry and did an excellent job of capturing both Dumbledore’s voice as well as Ron Weasley’s rough Northern tones. He also did a good job with Hermione Granger’s Australian accent.
Reading Harry Potter audiobooks has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. The stories are so carefully and lovingly written that they evoke such strong emotions in me, I can’t help but be swept away by them every time I listen. Whether it’s during long car rides or just when I’m zoning out in class, audiobooks have become my go-to way to escape reality. If you’re on the fence about whether audiobooks are for you, trust me – they’re worth it!
