Mr. Dale, my wife and I bought your DH recording at the same time as the book and spent Release Weekend listening to your interpretation of JKR’s marvelous characters. What fun! Since then I have listened a couple more times to your DH and continue to be amazed at the nuance and variety of the voices you use. So, a very happy birthday to you, with many more to come.

the audio books are FANTASTIC! you all must purchase them, no matter the price. I’ve been listening to them since they were only tapes when I was like 10, and it really helped me pronounce the words and stuff. Now, listening to other audio books, nothing can compare to his superior narration. He has won multiple grammys for HP audio book, and deserves every one.
My dad calls Jim Dale (jokingly) my second father, because I used to listen to the audio books every night before I went to sleep. They’re a great hands free reading tool! Just listened to part of DH today, actually, even before I knew it was his birthday!
