Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling (Harry Potter #3)

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban  - J.K. Rowling

Harry Potter is lucky to reach the age of thirteen, since he has already survived the murderous attacks of the feared Dark Lord on more than one occasion. But his hopes for a quiet term concentrating on Quidditch are dashed when a maniacal mass-murderer escapes from Azkaban, pursued by the soul-sucking Dementors who guard the prison. It's assumed that Hogwarts is the safest place for Harry to be. But is it a coincidence that he can feel eyes watching him in the dark, and should he be taking Professor Trelawney's ghoulish predictions seriously?


“I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.”   

I think this might be my favorite book in the series so far . . . Well, for the first 200 pages, I wondering, “Where’s all the tie-ups and action from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets?” So, it was nice to finally get in on some of that action after those 200 pages! :D

“‘I'll fix it up with Mum and Dad, then I'll call you. I know how to use a fellytone now—’

‘A telephone, Ron,’ said Hermione. ‘Honestly, you should take Muggle Studies next year...’”  

I thought that this book showed a lot more character problems (that makes no sense, but let’s go with it). We start to see parts that even though our wonderful Hermione Granger is so intelligent, she really starts to make it come in her way. Only one good thing came out of Hermione studying so much, and I think we all know what it is! :D Anyway, Hermione studies herself down to the bone, up to the point where it’s unbearable, even for her!


Harry and Ron seemed to get to their own problems, as well.



“‘Where is Wood?’ said Harry, suddenly realizing he wasn't there.

‘Still in the showers,’ said Fred. ‘We think he's trying to drown himself.’”

I thought that the story of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was great, but I’m really hoping for this series to speed up now! :D


Is time travel in all the books for Harry Potter? I’m not sure, but I’m hoping to see more of it! And . . . Siriusly, if we don’t get more of Sirius, I’m going to cry.


Overall, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was the funniest, most unpredictable and possibly my favorite (so far) in the series! :D I loved how everything connects together so well in this series and we end up missing so many clues or look too much into them! *cough cough* Trelawney *cough cough*


Thanks for reading my review, and hope you have a great day! :D
