Jim Dale: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

If I could afford to give a copy of each of Jim Dale’s audio recordings to everyone I know, I would.  They are excellent.  I would argue that each performance is more entertaining than if it were dramatized.  Dale creates a new voice for each character, and in the Deathly Hallows alone he voiced 146 characters.

Amazon reports that out of the top 10 best-selling audiobooks in the US and Canada, #1-6 are Dale’s Harry Potter performances.  However, I have recently finished listening (for about the 4th time), Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.  Great book by JK Rowling, great reading by Jim Dale.  If you aren’t ready to commit to listening to one of the longer HP books just yet, Chamber of Secrets is a great place to start.
