Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is the third, and possibly the best, book in the phenomenally successful, award-winning Harry Potter series by JK Rowling. After just about surviving yet another summer with the dreadful Dursleys, the arrival of Aunt Marge is the final straw and, in a fit of anger, Harry casts a spell on her, causing her to blow up like a balloon. He fully expects to be expelled from Hogwarts for his blatant flaunting of the rule not to use magic outside term time, but the arrival of the mysterious Knight Bus and a meeting with Cornelius Fudge, the Minister of Magic, result in Harry enjoying the rest of the holidays in the wonderful surroundings of the Leaky Cauldron.Meanwhile Sirius Black--one-time friend of Harry's parents, implicated in their murder and follower of "You-Know-Who"--escapes from Azkaban and this has serious implications for Harry. Back at Hogwarts, Harry's movements are restricted by the presence of the Dementors--guards from Azkaban on the look-out for Black.Stephen Fry's endearingly snooty vocal chords are a perfect match for Rowling's superb storytelling, and Fry manages to give even further depth to a complex and absorbing plot by adding an irreverent wit and a deep-rooted touch of class to a compelling and magical tale that, once heard, will never be forgotten. --Susan Harrison

5.0 2nd time around is even better!
I loved reading this series 9 years ago. Now I'm listening on Audible, and it is an absolute pleasure to revisit and go on the adventure again. Jim Dale is the narrator, and he is phenomenal.

5.0 So far, my favorite book still.
So I haven't read the series, in about 15 or 16 years, so I am doing a reread of the series. This month I am reading Goblet of fire and the order of the Phoenix. But now onto the review of my favorite book in the series. Boy it's been so long since I read this, that I forgot how much I freaking lov...

2.0 Coming of Age: "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" by J. K. Rowling
(original review, 2002)Children's literature comes in 3 styles these days. "The Coming of Age Stories", in which a child suffers a horrible tragedy and grows because of it. Pets, best friends, and elderly relations don't live long in Coming of Age tales. I hated the things when I was a kid. I'd seen...

5.0 Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling
A real page turner!I have loved this series. The first two books were not only an introduction of sorts into the witch and wizard world of Hogwart's, but a collection of small adventures.This book is all that and more. It has a dark note. It takes the reader to the scariest depths of Hogwart's. At t...
