Rezension bezieht sich auf: Harry Potter 1 and the Philosophers Stone. 7 CDs (Cover to Cover) (Audio CD)
There are some people out there, like my one friend, who don't care for that "gay british accent". I, however, quiet like it. I've listened to Potter-Books read by Jim Dale as well as by Rufus Beck, and eventhough I was quiet taken by both their performances, I like Fry's best. I do especially give him credit for being the only reader who doesn't give McGonogall and Hermione a hysteric touch and for leaving Dumbledore energetic, when both, Dale and Beck, make him sound like a wheezy old man. His Hagrid sounds almost exactly like Robbie Coltrane, who does a wonderful job in the movies.
Needless to say that the novel itself is one of the best I've read in the past years, as is the whole series. So if you like Audiobooks, this is one I can recommend.

I like S. Fry's version. I can easily listen to his voice even longer than two or three hours. I could recognize every single character in that version of his. (Have only listened to Book I so far.) American Versions can be irritating, because they are written in their own crude grammar, e.g. "gotten". Why did we spent so much time learning English grammar when it was destined to be wiped away in one sweep? I wished, S. Fry would have read the whole Potter series. It is such a pity that marketing often does trample on what is good and appealing. What is marketed most, must not necessarily be the best. But what is thought as the best, can be relative.
