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 Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
⭐5 stars⭐ The world isn't split into good people and Death Eaters. We've all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That's who we really are.

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...
