His are the authorised versions of the audiobooks not least because he is a friend of Jo and she was present throughout his recording. It is a great pity that the comparatively very few textual differences in the American text, caused a decision to be made that Jim Dale read those. He did a decent enough job but his readings are simply not in the same league as Fry’s.

Happy Birthday to the perfect Harry Potter narrator and a thoroughly good chap! I’ve listen to the 100 plus CDs pretty well constantly in my car on the way to work for the last few years. By the time I’ve finished them I’m ready for a rerun. Only problem..Prof McGonagall isn’t given a Scottish accent and Tonks has a voice out of ‘Last of the Summer Wine’ (doesn’t complement Lupin’s). What am I complaining about…he is a genius. Everyone likes a bit of Fry!

Happy birthday Stephen! I love listening to you read the books……….though, you do drive me mad because once I’ve listened to them the voice in my head has your voice for days afterwards! That makes me sound a bit mad. :D

@hpyoda – why should Lupin and Tonks sound similar ? Tonks is given a “Brummie” (Birmingham) accent …. “Last of the Summer Wine” is set in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire …
McGonagall might have a “Mc” to her surname – that does not necessarily imply that she was born or raised in Scotland.

He had done an even worse job of dressing himself than the wizards at the World Cup. He was wearing a tea cozy for a hat, on which he had pinned a number of bright badges; a tie patterned with horseshoes over a bare chest, a pair of what looked like child
