HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jim Dale

Children Ages 10+ • 26.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

Harry is 15, angry and alienated. Gone is the eager, wet-behind-the-ears boy wizard. He’s morphed into a surly teenager. The story is slow to start, but a peerless performance by Jim Dale spins even long passages of exposition into gold. Once Harry reaches Hogwarts, the pace accelerates and the fun begins. Voldemort is secretly marshalling the dark wizards for war, the new Dark Arts teacher runs Hogwarts like a fascist state, and Harry learns of an ancient prophecy explaining his psychic connection to Voldemort. More thoughtful, missing the playfulness of earlier adventures, this artful coming-of-age story provides the perfect backdrop for Harry’s adolescent angst and awakening consciousness. Dale’s wizardry transports listeners to places Muggle and magical, and Rowling’s inventive plot shifts and fresh characters make this “must listening” for older Potter fans. S.J.H.
