Jim Dale

I love Harry Potter.  Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve been hooked by the books and secretly hoped my letter to Hogwarts would arrive.  But what’s even more magical are the audiobooks.  Jim Dale, the narrator, brings each character to life and it’s simply spectacular.  I mean, he does so many accents and voices that you’d never believe it was one person.  Indeed, I thought the way they recorded the audiobooks was that he would record each character separately.  So he would spend one day only reading Harry’s lines and then he’d spend another just reading Ron’s lines and they’d splice them together.  But then I found the clip below of a reading Jim Dale did and my gosh he can switch through all of them seamlessly.

If you haven’t heard the audiobooks, they are worth the trip to your local library to check them out.
