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! Avatar Imagegot2lovme says: happy b-day jim. Hope your day is great.Avatar ImageNimbus-X says: Happy birthday Mr. Dale!Avatar ImageAndreaB09 says: Thats what he looks like - i pictured him a lot diffrent.

I love love love your audiobooks, and my mom does, too! I loved listening to them- I sat on a blanket and reflected on what the books were saying. And I loved your different voices, also! Have a great birthday! Avatar Imageshelbypotter says: Happy Birthday, your voice is pricelessAvatar Imageowanalilypotter says: Happy birthday Jim! You rock!Avatar Imageizziewitch says: *noblegracedescending: my thoughts exactly, although I still get teary when I hear him do chapter 34, better than trying to read thru blurry eyes! Only thing I didn't like about his recordings is that he gave Belatrix a pseudo French accent, simply because of her last name. And she obviously wasn't French; she's British-born. Happy Birthday Jim anyway!Avatar Imagenetsrikb says: Happy Birthday Mr. Dale! :DAvatar ImageHattFerg says: WOW!! Happy Birthday!!!!Avatar ImageHattFerg says: WOW!!

Anyway Happy late birthday hoep you had a good one.Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: happy birthday Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: Happy Belated Birthday!

I'll make sure get a copy of an audiobook somehow and give it a listen.Avatar Imagemolly43 says: HAPPY BELATED BIRHTDAY JIM DALE! I had to make sure I said it because I listen to all the HP books over and over as I drive to and from work. Some people listen to music, I listen to Jim Dale. Avatar ImageHGROSS44 says: Happy Birthday Jim i love the way you do the books on disc. I have a few of them and hope to get them allAvatar Imageyr.yasindu says: happy birthday Jim!Avatar ImageRobbie Rowe says: I think that perhaps maybe Jim Dale does the audio for the 1st and 2nd Harry Potter videogames.Avatar Imagesiriuslysirius11 says: you know, I don't think he's that great- most of the characters sound the same.
