Harry Potter and the Prisioner of Azkaban by J.K.Rowling Review

We are onto the third book in the Harry Potter series, I am slowly getting through all the series I have started reading and need to finish. It is time for a review.



Harry Potter is lucky to reach the age of thirteen, since he has survived the murderous attacks of the feared Dark Lord on more than one occasion. His hopes for a quiet school term concentrating on Quidditch are dashed, though, 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 his imagination that is making him feel eyes watching him in the dark, and should he be taking Professor Trelawney’s ghoulish predictions seriously?

My Opinion

This is a series I have read before multiple times, this means I know just about everything there is to know about these books and I know which ones are my favourites and which ones aren’t. Chamber of secrets is my least favourite, while this book is my favourite.

The reason why I love this book so much in the series is because it is the first book that actually starts to take Harry Potter onto the darker route it ends up on. By this is I mean it is the first book where Harry actually makes a decision to kill or not, he starts to find out what really happened the day his parents die, it is also the first book where harry finds out Voldemort isn’t going to be the only person after him. In a book that has 460 pages a lot gets written which makes you think how just how unlucky Harry is.

The writing in this book is amazing, without it we wouldn’t be able to feel the way we do when Harry has to make decision on people he has only heard bad things about and actually try and think the same way his parents do. Also the way that Hogwarts is described just makes every single person who reads this book just want to give up everything they are doing write now and go and see this place exactly how J.K.Rowling has described it.

The story in this book is one of my favourite, and all this comes down to all the twists that happen in the last 100 pages. I know that from page 320 onwards I couldn’t put the book down as I just wanted to read every single word that was written and not miss anything.

Overall this book is amazing and I recommend that people go back and read this series if they already have and if not then I want to know why you haven’t read it yet. This book in the series is simply amazing and does nothing but add to the amazing quality of the series so far.
