Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban (Harry Potter #3), by J.K. Rowling
★★★★★ and ♥
Synopsis: For twelve long years, the dread fortress of Azkaban held an infamous prisoner named Sirius Black. Convicted of killing thirteen people with a single curse, he was said to be the heir apparent to the Dark Lord, Voldemort.
Now he has escaped, leaving only two clues as to where he might be headed: Harry Potter’s defeat of You-Know-Who was Black’s downfall as well. And the Azkaban guards heard Black muttering in his sleep, “He’s at Hogwarts…he’s at Hogwarts.”
Harry Potter isn’t safe, not even within the walls of his magical school, surrounded by his friends. Because on top of it all, there may well be a traitor in their midst.
In Sentence: How could anyone not love this book?!
My Thoughts: I could never stop loving this series! There is something so enchanting about these stories that make me want to read them again and again. Sometimes I feel it’s the humor, sometimes it’s the creativity, and other times it’s the characters. Regardless of what makes this story so great, this is a treasure of a novel. Back when only the first three books were out, this installment was my favorite of the three. I loved the revelations that were made towards the end, and I think my favorite character for this book (next to Dumbledore and Hagrid) was Professor Lupin. My all-time favorite part is Hermione’s bad day, particularly the moment when she slaps Malfoy. I think what makes me like it so much is the fact that Hermione is typically the calmer one of the trio, and she suddenly loses her temper. I find this bit of character development really intriguing and entertaining for some reason.
Overall, I really recommend this series if you haven’t read it yet. I don’t care if you’re a kid or an adult, these books are a lot of fun to read. From Diagon Alley to Hogsmeade, there’s nothing about these books that you’re going to regret!
