Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone – Chapter 3

Random HP observation of the day: “Dudley’s second bedroom”

Oh, Dursleys. You never cease to amaze.

That said, so far Stephen Fry is great. The difference between him and Jim Dale at this point is that Fry’s voice is slightly more melodic, like listening to a bedtime story. Also, my daughter and I are just as engrossed as we were the first time we listened. And my daughter says that Fry “does a good Hagrid.”

Oh and we had to have a talk about how just how and why the Dursleys are abusive.

      Oh, I so agree. In general, though, I’m not a fan of dialogue written in dialect, though I understand why it’s done. Hagrid has a very distinct way of speaking, and I get that, but so much easier to listen to than to decipher on the page.
