Sunday Synopsis-Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban


Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Harry Potter, #3)Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is my favorite book of the entire Harry Potter series. Back in 1999 when I read the series the first time, I actually started with this one as it had just been published, fell in love, and went back to read the first two. Each time a new book came out, I immediately bought it. They are so hard to put down!

Before returning to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for his third year, Harry Potter has to endure two months with his aunt, uncle, and cousin which never turns out well for anyone. During this third year, he will encounter magical creatures, animagi, a prisoner from Azkaban, dementors, the wrath of Snape (as usual), and several intense Quidditch matches where he is the Seeker for Team Gryffindor.

There will be secret trips to Hogsmeade, visits with Hagrid, a magical artifact called the Marauder's Map, and a near-death experience with the dementors. His skills as a wizard grow immensely. Harry will also learn more about his parents who died when he was a baby and develop even closer relationships with Ron and Hermione.  This is also the year when the series gains more of a sense of foreboding.

There is so much in the book that didn't make it into the movie, so even if you've seen the movie, this book holds many surprises.

  1. My Sweetie used to take the kids to stand in line to get books as soon as they became available. This one was quite a wild ride.
