The Age has a review of several audio books it considers ideal for family listening on long road trips, and (of course) Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is high on their list. The article gives an in-depth review of Stephen Fry's reading of the story, not just the story itself. For example:

"Fry reads Harry Potter with wonderful elan . . . he brings out all the strength and verve of [J.K. Rowling's] dialogue. There's a silvery old sage voice for Dumbledore, a pretty exact fit for Alan Rickman's Snape and a superbly spot-lit way of distinguishing the characters with the glide of the voice so that you see them running breathless down sinister corridors or soaring with excitement as they play quidditch."
Thanks, Sue!
