Book Review: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban


Title: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Author: J.K. Rowling
Publisher: Scholastic
Release Date: October 1999
Series: Harry Potter#3

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.

My Thoughts:
If I’m going to talk about good teen fiction the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling must be mentioned. If you haven’t read all seven books, read them! They are amazing! When the first Harry Potter movie came out I tried to read the book before I saw the movie. I wasn’t that into it and didn’t finish the book. After I saw the 2nd movie I decided to try to read the books again. I picked up at the third book, and I LOVED Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. I was hooked! J.K. Rowling is an amazing author! She weaves a fantastical world that readers want to visit. There’s nothing more I can say.

Which Harry Potter book is your favorite?

Happy Reading!

  1. I don't know which Harry Potter book is my favorite. It's a toss up between Order of the Phoenix (#5) and Half-Blood Prince (#6). I liked Book 7, but I missed Hogwarts, so it's not my top pick. And I didn't start reading them until after I saw the first movie. I just didn't want to join the club. But I'm glad I did!
