Harry Potter was left on his aunt's doorstep when he was a baby and was treated poorly but never understood why. Fast forward to Harry's 11th birthday and he begins to receive odd-looking letters that his uncle gets rid of. When he takes the family away to get away from the onslaught of letters, they are surprised when a giant named Hagrid comes knocking. Hagrid introduces Harry to his true home - Hogwarts. While at Hogwarts Harry learns the story behind his parents' untimely death as well as the scar on his forehead. Harry also comes face to face with the man who tried to kill him - Lord Voldemort. This becomes the first of many encounters between Harry and his sworn enemy.
I have read this book many times but this was my first time listening to a narrator tell the story and I found it very enjoyable. Any adventure into Hogwarts is worth it to me. I know that there are many issues with supporting J.K. Rowling due to her transphobic post but please note this audiobook was borrowed from the library and not purchased so as not to add to her wealth.
