I've held out for so long, being a die-hard fiction fan, refusing to read the Harry Potter books. I usually stick with bestsellers such as MIDDLESEX or even the ubiquitous DA VINCI CODE (which,if you haven't read ARE great) but now I'm hooked on the HP series. No wonder Rowling wrote so many as she was in love with her characters as much as we all are. Great fun and not at all what I'd expect.

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
It was surprisingly a good read. I enjoy it very much. Harry finally stood up on his own (against the Dursley) makes me smile. Ah, the joy of seeing them panic over magic... just like good old days in Book 1. The author is good in leaving her readers with several suspicions as to who Sirius really is. The answer is very satisfying. I also enjoy reading about all the exciting classes the students have at Hogwarts. (especially Professor Lupin's and the ever-so-useful Marauders' Map)
I recommand this wonderful book for anybody thrilling for an exciting read.

This review may contain spoilers, read at your own risk.

Cover:
Buckbeak, Harry, and Hermione. This is my favorite cover. I like Buckbeak's spread wings with the moon in the background. Hermione looks pretty ridiculous though.

Writing:
(4/5) This book was surprisingly well written. It might be the best written of the entire series. The writing was probably so good because this one sounded like a fun book to write, it had a lot of great characters. The only thing that was annoying was the childish full caps yelling.

Setting:
(5/5) The fully occupied wizard village, Hogsmeade, sounded like it was a lot of fun. The setting was once again really fun. The animagi, boggart, and patronus ideas were really good.

Plot:
(4/5) This is my favourite book of the series. I think it's a lot of people's favourite and I can see why. People claim its the only one that's its own separate story. Although I think the first four are all really good books individually, at the end of the day, they did center around the conflict of Voldemort. This one didn't. The conflict was something else and it was way more interesting in a lot of ways.

The plot and revelations of this book were really good. You didn't quite know who the villain was and it wasn't heavily centered around a villain really, which is why I think it was so good. It was a good plot completely fueled by some really great characters. Those always tend to be the best of stories.

The only flaw was the whole time travel thing. It was thoughtless. Completely and utterly thoughtless. J.K. Rowling said she established early on that the dead can't be brought back by magic. That was a good rule, especially considering that one of this series' themes is death.

It reveals what happened in the past with Sirius Black, James Potter, Peter Pettigrew, and Remeus Lupin. Also who betrayed Harry's parents.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is one of the great books because it had revealed many secrets that had impressed me a lot. It also surprised me when some the secrets that was revealed wasn't what i expected. Some of the adventures that I've read was really good. Also my favorite part was Quidditch when the Gryffindor team first won the cup in a couple of years. There were also a new broom called the Firebolt which was the best broom made in the book. I would recommend this book to people who likes fantasy and adventurous books. Also who likes to read Harry Potter books and if you like the Harry Potter movies.

Format: Hardcover
As Harry Potter's third year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry begins the nation is shaken by the news that a murderer has escaped from the infamously horrible wizard prison of Azkaban. The escapee turns out to be Sirius Black. Many in the wizard world believe that Sirius Black's next target is Harry.
There is yet another new professor teaching Defense Against the Dark Arts at Hogwarts. The shabby man, Professor Lupin, is the first good teacher of the class that Harry and his friends have had. However, there are some strange things about Professor Lupin; why does he keep getting sick, and what is it about crystal balls that scare him so much?
The reader meets more amazing and fantastic creatures including hippogriffs, bogarts and the horrible Dementors that guard Azkaban.
The conclusion of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban leads to some fascinating discoveries about the Whomping Willow and the truth about the night Harry's parents were murdered, as well as the secret Professor Lupin has been hiding. Even Scabbers, Ron's rat, has an important role to play. Rowling's style is as enthralling as ever. No fan of Harry Potter should miss this book.
