What Audiobook Are We Listening To?
This week at Crash Symphony Productions, we’re listening to Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, 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 fourth book, Harry returns to Hogwarts only to find out someone has put his name in the Goblet of Fire. This is the first move in a plan that will bring Harry face to face with Voldemort once again and start the plunge into the dark side of the Harry Potter universe.
The Triwizard Tournament is to be held at Hogwarts. Only wizards who are over seventeen are allowed to enter – but that doesn’t stop Harry dreaming that he will win the competition. Then at Hallowe’en, when the Goblet of Fire makes its selection, Harry is amazed to find his name is one of those that the magical cup picks out. He will face death-defying tasks, dragons and Dark wizards, but with the help of his best friends, Ron and Hermione, he might just make it through – alive!
