What Audiobook Are We Listening To?
This week at Crash Symphony Productions, we’re listening to Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, the audiobook as read by Stephen Fry. I found these audiobook adaptations to be a really easy way to get back into Harry Potter without having to pick up my old hard copies which are falling apart by now and probably couldn’t handle another read-through. There is no one better to narrate these books than Stephen Fry, whose personality, history, intelligence and sense of humour are at the level where they can do adequate credit to the intelligence, history, humour and personality possessed by the books themselves.
In this fifth book, dark forces are gathering and Harry finds he has to grow up fast just to keep up with them. In this book, Harry faces challenges at school from those students who don’t believe him, along with the building pressure of Voldemort’s growing power and accumulating forces.
Dark times have come to Hogwarts. After the Dementors’ attack on his cousin Dudley, Harry Potter knows that Voldemort will stop at nothing to find him. There are many who deny the Dark Lord’s return, but Harry is not alone: a secret order gathers at Grimmauld Place to fight against the Dark forces. Harry must allow Professor Snape to teach him how to protect himself from Voldemort’s savage assaults on his mind. But they are growing stronger by the day and Harry is running out of time….
