The audio version of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix read by Jim Dale has won an Audie award at the annual audiobook award ceremony held earlier this month in Chicago. The winner was chosen by a team of 100 judges who selected the winners after reviewing 525 audiobooks released from Nov. 1, 2002, to Oct. 31, 2003.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix edged out a full-cast audio collection by nearly 400 Shakespearean actors, including Joseph Fiennes and the late Sir John Gielgud to win the award, which is equivalent to an Emmy or Grammy in the book world.
