These audio books are entertaining for the most part. This one is VERY long, and I know they get longer. It was slow at first, then it picked up towards the end. Harry seems like kind of a jerk sometimes, but that could be the narrator. And since everything is so magical, I can never really guess what's going on. It's also funny to see things coming together, even from the first book. All the small hints I could have paid closer attention to are coming to fruition now. On to book 5!!
