I've read the first chapter of this book in three languages, twice each. A friend told me the language was magical, so it'd be best for me to read in the original English. Instead of reading, I got a copy of Jim Dale's narration and am digging it--about 1/3 of the way through. Fun so far. I can't believe I'm finally "reading" this!

I finished the audiobook this afternoon. I found it entertaining, funny, and engaging. I was hesitant to walk into this magical world, to learn its language, to attempt to not be confused by its rules. But it was fairly easy to follow even on audiobook while I was distracted with driving. I'm looking forward to listening to the rest on CD as I drive but don't yet think I'll crack the books themselves. (How can you refuse the audio version when Jim Dale is such a brilliant narrator?)
