Happy Brthday to a great narrator! I have all of the books on audio. It’s great. When I read the books, I think of his voices rather than the movies I’m thankful to say.

If it weren’t for Jim Dale, I would never have made it through the last four chapters of DH. I hope he has a wonderful birthday!

Happy Birthday Jim! I have all of the HP CDs and love every minute of them. You, Harry and I have traveled many miles and redecorated my house together. Thanks for making the more tedious parts of my life happy memories! Love, Michelle

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JIM!

I am on my second listening on CD of Deathly Hallows and it’s just wonderful.

I actually listened to the first five books before reading any of the books in the series. HBP was the first one I read, rather than listened to because there was a long wait for the CD set at the library. I have since purchased all seven books so I can listen to them when ever I want. Jim’s voice brings such life and feeling to the characters it’s a joy and thrill to listen to the books!

Many more Happy Birthdays to you!

Jim Dale is so awesome! I love the audiobook of DH! When we were in line at the Union Square book store, he came outside at one in the morning and gave the audiobook to my eight-year-old sister!!!!! We were in shock. I new having a cute siser was good for something! But it totally made the five to six hour wait worth it.

Cheers Jimm hope u had a good one ! cant wait to hear your version of 7 yayyyyyy

After I finished reading DH, I decided to give the audio book a try. DH is my first audio book experience, but it won’t be my last.

I’ve been listening to Jim Dale over the last week and he’s WONDERFUL! He made DH thrilling for me all over again! Now I simply must hear the first six books as well.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Jim Dale and THANK YOU!

Happy Birthday Jim! I have all your audiobooks and enjoy them all very much. =)

Jim thank you so much for all the hard work. I will buy anything you read. All the Harry books are fantastic (thank you for fixing Ginny’s voice in 7 :-) ) And The Christmas Carol is a welcome addition to our family’s yuletide tradition. Minimoys, Peter Pan, Around the World in 100 Days… they’re all great.

Happy Birthday! And thank you soooo much for bringing the books to me via audio. Driving around Alaska takes forever for me and listening to these great books with your talent is a blessing that makes the driving go by so fast!

Yeah, Jim! JK Rowling, Jules Verne, Dave Barry. You have good taste as well as great ability.

You were the most memorable person in all of “Pete’s Dragon!”

Even the “20 Below” team of our local paper loves you. http://www.registerguard.com/news/2007/08/13/pl.20bkratka.0813.p1.php

Happy Birthday!

Now if you all don’t mind, I’m going to bed to listen to the audio books for the night like I have every night for my whole Harry Potter life….

He looks good for 72, I thought he was in his early 60s. Happy Birthday Jim (even though I prefer Stephen Fry in regards to the audio books)!!

Happy Happy belated birthday Jim Dale! My family and I listen to your excellent Harry Potter narrations whenever we travel… you are, as Harry would say, BRILLIANT!

Avatar Image says:

Jim Dale’s voices for Dumbledore, Hagrid, Voldemort, Dobby, and Kreacher are wonderfully evocative of those characters. His most moving performance, for me, was Dobby’s death and burial—a perfect rendition of J. K. Rowling’s most poignant prose. Have a great 73rd year, Jim!
