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. To strengthen himself against them, Harry reaches out to Remus Lupin, the Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher who was once a friend of his father’s. 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...

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...

2.0 Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Review)
Alright, once again, I finished the book almost two years ago and because I was in school and had other nonsense going on, I took very few notes and put off writing the review until now. I have few details to give, which is especially depressing when you’re giving a low rating to a book that is belo...

3.0 Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Rowling)
With this somewhat longer novel, Rowling appears to begin her Big Bad arc in earnest, invoking the history of the Potter parents' generation, and introducing more of what (I presume) will be major participants in the obviously forthcoming battle between good and evil. That being the case, the beginn...

After three books, I still can’t help but wonder how J.K. Rowling came up with these ideas: 1. Creatures with unique qualities. Dementors, Boggart, Hagrid’s pets, etc. 2. The terms used at the book. Muggles, Quidditch, Butterbear, Honeydukes, Grindylow, etc. 3. The world building/Places. Ex. Hogs...
