Stephen Fry's version of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, J K Rowlings's classic tale of jolly japes and ghosts, won the children's audiobook prize at last year's Talkies awards. Now its sequel, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets has been released, unabridged, and again brilliantly rendered by Fry. I use the word "rendered" deliberately: this is much more than mere reading. Fry conjures up the richly various cast as if he was himself a Dark Wizard.
