Harry Potter Italian audiobook
on 1 June 2014
My first reaction to this audio book of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in Italian was 'Wow - he's talking so fast!' It took me a while to attune my ear and to start picking up the meaning. Maybe all Italian is like that - I am just at the stage of moving from reading to trying to understand the spoken language.
However, once I settled down to it, I really enjoyed these CD's. It helps that the reader has a clear and pleasant voice, easy to listen to, and almost soothing. It is quite a straight-forward reading - he does use different voices, but they are not very comical or pronounced. It suited me because it was quite dignified and grown-up, like the copies of the books with the 'adult' covers, and apart from the quick pace, it was suitable for someone learning the language.
