Why is Professor Dumbledore coming to visit Harry at the Dursleys' house in Privet Drive? And what will happen when he meets Uncle Vernon and Aunt Petunia? What is it that cannot wait until Harry returns to Hogwarts in a few weeks' time for the start of his sixth year...?

Stephen Fry is the perfect choice to read the latest Harry Potter book as it makes a move over into the realm of audiobooks. It's no surprise to learn that he has won at least one award for each of the previous books in the series he has narrated.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince CD collection consists of nearly 21 hours worth of material spread across 17 CDs for this, the complete and unabridged version.

More often than not, especially when the recordings are this long, the listener's mind can sometimes wander. This usually happens when the narrator's voice just seems to drone on and on without any emotion attached to the recording. Thankfully this is not a problem with Fry behind the mic.

For those who prefer talking books over the printed word then this is about as good as the format gets.
