- Written by: J.K. Rowling
- Narrated by: Stephen Fry

Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!

Amazing Story, re-lived..!
Harry Potter is my favourite fantasy story, all thanks to J K Rowling for writing such a wonderful and amazing fantasy world which if anyone starts reading feel themself a part of it. I have nothing more to say about JK Rowling which haven't been said before, she is an amazing and remarkable writer..
But I have something to say about Stephen Fry, sir hat's off to you. The way you have narrated this book, I re-lived this journey of Harry to hogwarts for the 1st time again. The way you distinguished each character with different voices was mind blowing, it kept me listening to this audiobook for hours(exactly in 3 go I finished the whole book :-)). So I want to give Stephen special credit for making my 1st audiobook experience out of the world.
