The “Harry Potter” Audiobooks Finally Arrive on Audible
Up until today, the digital audiobooks were only available online through J.K. Rowling’s official store on Pottermore. But now, the audiobooks have arrived on Audible, the audiobook subscription service from Amazon. All seven books are available on the service immediately, with UK listeners able to download Stephen Fry’s version of the audiobooks, and US listeners, that of Jim Dale.
Audible’s Chief Content Officer said,
We are thrilled to offer our customers the opportunity to enjoy the Harry Potter audio catalog seamlessly through the Audible service. 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 trailblazing series have an effortless and affordable way to enjoy them in audio.
The breathtaking performances of Jim Dale, Stephen Fry and Felix von Manteuffel transform Harry Potter’s adventures into immersive and truly transporting new experiences—even for those who have already read the novels. We look forward to bringing more listeners to this richly imagined universe.
