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, and might even have assisted in the deaths of James and Lily Potter—Harry Potter’s parents. Now Black 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 him muttering in his sleep, "He’s at Hogwarts... he’s at Hogwarts." Of course, Harry already had plenty to worry about. After inflating his nasty aunt and running away on the magical Knight Bus, he finds he’s being pursued by death omens at every turn. He receives two wonderful gifts: a top-of-the-line Firebolt broomstick, and the Marauder’s Map, a magical diagram of Hogwarts made by the mysterious “Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs.” Hermione disappears frequently, burdened down by a seemingly impossible course schedule. And the soulless Dementors have come to guard Hogwarts—supposedly to protect Harry from Sirius Black, but they terrify Harry more than the fugitive ever could.

Lupin teaches Harry about the Patronus Charm, a defensive measure well above the level of magic generally mastered by wizards Harry’s age. But even with his broom, his map, his magic, and his loyal friends, Harry isn't safe. Because on top of everything else, there’s a traitor hidden at Hogwarts...

5.0 Wie zijn de echte slechteriken en wie de goeden?
Deze vertaling was volgens mij zeer goed. Ik heb dit boek nu vier keer gelezen: drie keer in het Engels en eens in het Nederlands. Elke keer, heb ik meer bewondering voor hoe dit uitstekende boek in elkaar zit.   Er gebeuren zo veel kleine dingen door de roman die op een geven moment mag niet belang...

5.0 Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban
The review below was based on my first read of the Harry Potter books, ages ago and in Dutch. Updated reviews will follow after a reread (in English) I plan to do. And this is where I became a fan of Harry Potter. I really liked it! It's often been said that it is the best of the Potter books, and...

Powrót do Harrego Pottera po raz trzeci, czyli po prostu czas na trzecią część sagi o młodym czarodzieju. "Harry Potter i Więzień Azkabanu" jest wyjątkową powieścią, ponieważ w tej części nie pojawia się Sam Wiesz Kto. To chyba jedyny tom, w którym nasz czarny charakter nie występuje. W tej czę...
