Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
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 Azk ...more
at the end of the book, Sirius wrote harry a letter. on the letter he explained there was money in his account and it was to make up for 13 years of birthday gifts. he had Crookshanks, Hermoine's cat take the order to the owl office and ordered it using another name. (hide spoiler)]
Notes: Separating itself from its forebears, it's a story of greater complexity, darker tones, and a vastly expanded mythology. ...more
I last read this book when I was 14 years old, given that I'm almost 32 now, I have a whole new perspective on it. Despite the fact that I gave this book 5 stars previously, I have to admit that it didn't grow on me until this, my second read.
Confession time: I didn't like Remus or Sirius.

OK, OK, I'M SORRY! I've since changed my mind! Notice that I used the past tense.

Notes: A flavorful foreboding, it plies expanded bandwidth, like ripened fruit, and more acute: a sweet and spicy sandwich.

As it seems my Harry Potter reviews don’t always start with a Dumbledore quote but always end up being “My thoughts about this book” reviews as well. For a series like HP that’s been read by so many people this might be the best solution though. And because the books get longer and longer and because I don’t share my friend Jayson’s amazing and remarkable ability to describe a book in one significa ...more
I'm flabbergasted, again. This one deviates from what it had been for the first two books - by a mile!. Just when I thought the second one was more detailed compared to the first. Prisoner of Azkaban is much more complex, having a lengthier plot, more descriptive characters and environs, but still not lacking in any way. It makes the first two feel like short stories. I'm going to stop saying this is 'The Best' until I'm done with the series, for, right now it feels like it'll kee ...more
«Harry Potter was a highly unusual boy in many ways.For one thing, he hated the summer holidays more than any other time of year. For another, he really wanted to do his homework but was forced to do it in secret, in the dead of night. And he also happened to be a wizard»
Sirius Black's escape from Azkaban prison is on every wizard's lips. Not even the dreaded guards of the prison, the Dementors, managed to keep in a cage the wicked wiz...more
I fell in love with S. Black in this book and I never looked back.
I'm going to add some pictures from my book, although now, I wish I would have added more but it is what it is. . . maybe later
I love these big illustrated coffee table editions of the books. It makes re-reading them an extremely fun experience. I just wish she would put t ...more

⚠️Spoiler Warning: stop reading now, if you’re unfamiliar with the world of Hogwarts.⚠️
Personal Opinion Note: I’m terribly sad for you, if you’ve never read the books (or at least watched the movies). 😉📚🎧🎬
These books are only gonna get longer- so, rather than re-capping, I’m just going to note my favorit ...more
I guess you can tell from my rating that this wasn't my all-time favorite HP installment, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it. I remember thinking that the movie was about a 3/5 star rating for me when I first saw it, but now that I've experienced the novel version, I can see how the ending in the book is so much more detailed and excellent than how they chose to portray the e ...more

For some reason, I never really liked Prisoner of Azkaban when I was younger, I thought it as a sidejob, after Chamber of Secrets & that big Revelation, I waited for more (& there was a little amount of waiting before the book been translated, so maybe that might be a reason too, a kind of mild disappointment & no book after that.), so I thought it was, not as important as the last book... but ...more

I will likely rewrite this review at some point in the future as I have a serious cold and feel like I am on my deathbed. I need to layoff the Greek mythology because I might have muttered that I was the goddess of animals in a state of delirium. Anyways, Harry Potter.
What I enjoyed about Harry Potter #1 was his wonderment and amazement. He is grateful that he isn’t going to be stuck with the Dursley ...more
It marks a distinct change in tone and a maturation of the writing. As the characters grew older, the challenges they faced became more dark and intense. The plot became murkier especially in regard to Sirius and his involvement (or lack thereof) in the murders of Potter’s parents. It all just got so much better. I think this is a large part of Rowling’s success. She could have fell into a trap and continuously wrote books like the first two, ...more
How could I not have fallen hard for a man who, by day, has the vibe of a young Pablo Neruda, and by night strips down naked and takes on werewolf form?
I mean, can you imagine having sex with this man?
Well, I have. Several times. And, as a woman who read the entire Harry Potter series as an adult, rather than a child, I could not get over my joy when the series shifted from the wonderful, but some ...more

Although she writes under the pen name J.K. Rowling, pronounced like rolling, her name when her first Harry Potter book was published was simply Joanne Rowling. Anticipating that the target audience of young boys might not want to read a book written by a woman, her publishers demanded that she use two initials, rather than her full name. As she had no middle name, she ch ...more
