Amazing! Wonderful! Absolutely incredible!
I can't even begin to tell you how much I enjoyed this. Andrew did a fantastic job, all the voices were spot on! And the world cup was unbelievable. Really enjoyable to listen to, and it really felt like I was there at the final! I very much enjoyed the Rita elements, which gave us little indications into Harry and families life post the battle of Hogwarts. Last year being the year he sends his youngest off to Hogwarts, I'm sure I'm not the only one wanting to know more about his life since, and the lives of everyone else. So I very much appreciated these hints and nods from Rita.

Enjoyable listen but not perfect
A very good adaption of the book with a well read performance by Andrew Lincoln with the highlight of this production being the bonus World Cup content (especially Rita's "commentary" of the final.)
My only criticism of this being that having no way of showing us the fantastic illustrations that where present in the books I feel it looses a little bit of its charm.

A fantastic production!
Andrew Lincoln’s reading of this book was an absolute joy to listen to, but it was the beautifully dramatized 2014 Quidditch World Cup coverage that I enjoyed the most. As a long time member of Pottermore relished reading those Daily Prophet articles as they were posted back in 2014. To have this small chapter of the Harry Potter story finally produced in an audio format is something I thought I’d never see. Now if we could just get an audio adaptation of The Cursed Child.

I found the entire book extremely entertaining. It was very well narrated and is a nice addition to the Harry Potter books in story. When I found the most entertaining out of all of it was the 2014 Quidditch World Cup narrated by Ginny potter and Rita Skeeter. That part just made my day
