Audible has finally made all 7 Harry Potter audiobooks available. Stephen Fry has narrated the UK edition, while Jim Dale voiced the North American version.
“We are thrilled to offer our customers the opportunity to enjoy the Harry Potter audio catalogue seamlessly through the Audible service,” said Andy Gaies, Audible Chief Content Officer. “J. K. Rowling’s celebrated series is firmly entrenched in the literary pantheon, but when the first Harry Potter novel was released in 1997, smartphones were yet to become the ubiquitous listening devices they are today. Now fans of this bellwether series have an effortless and affordable way to enjoy them in audio.”
“The breathtaking performances of Stephen Fry and Jim Dale transform Harry Potter’s adventures into immersive and truly transporting new experiences—even for those who have already read the novels,” added Gaies. “We look forward to bringing more listeners to this richly imagined universe.”
Pottermore, the digital entertainment, news and e-commerce company from J.K. Rowling, is the publisher of the Harry Potter digital audiobooks. The Pottermore Shop, the company’s digital retail arm, will continue to sell the Harry Potter digital audiobooks.
