Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - J.K. Rowling 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.

Obviously, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban ticks off all three tasks associated with this particular suspect card ... :)

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - J.K. Rowling

It is the summer between the 2nd and 3rd years and Harry is still living at his aunt and uncle's house and still cannot wait for the school year to start. He receives paperwork for his aunt and uncle to fill out for the school year to let him go into Hogsmeade but he has to make a deal with the devil (his uncle). On the last day of the Uncle Vernon's sister Marge's visit, Harry cannot control his temper any longer and Marge ends up swelling up and floating on the ceiling. He runs away from their house and takes the night bus into London to the Leaky Cauldron where the Minister of Magic is there to tell Harry that he is to stay the rest of the summer at the Leaky Cauldron and only wander around the town, but not London. 

 

As the new year starts, Harry learns more and more about Sirius Black and how to battle the Dementors as they continually come after Harry. 

 

I really am uncertain as to how many times I have read this book as I do enjoy this story very much.

Wie zijn de echte slechteriken en wie de goeden?
Harry Potter en de Gevangene van Azkaban - Wiebe Buddingh',J.K. Rowling

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 belangrijk lijken, maar later wel blijken te zijn. Elk klein plotpunt is zo keurig afgemaakt. Ik vind het zo bevredigend. Is er ooit een ander boek geweest dat al zijn verhaallijnen beter afmaakt?

 

Behalve dit, de personages en de Harry Potter-world ook zijn zo kleurrijk en fantasierijk, en het verhaal loopt snel. Ik vind het gemakkelijk om de hoofdpersonages aardig te vinden, en de slechteriken te haten.

 

Maar hoe goed zijn de 'goede' personages namelijk? Rowling maakt het wat interessanter voor de volwassenen die haar boeken lezen omdat bijna iedere karakter in deze boekenreeks bevat beide kanten, zowel goed en slecht. Dat geldt ook voor 'goeden' zoals Harry's ouders of Perkamentus, de hoofdmeester van Zweinstein, of Harry's lievelingsleraar, Remus Lupos. De lezer moet blijven raden aan welke de karakters eigenlijk staan. Dat is de echte rode draad die loopt door het hele reeks, en maakt het spannend en interessant.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - J.K. Rowling

Two of my friends were raving about the audio books of Harry Potter and since I have been wanting to re-read the series for some time now, I decided to get the audios. They are absolutely fantastic! I read the books so quickly years and years ago (because how could you not devour them), and there are small details that I had forgotten. I love that I can experience them again in this different way (after reading and seeing all the movies). The narrative is Jim Dale and he keeps you so engrossed with the subtle changes of his voice for the characters.

 

I decided to use this one for the werewolves square because of the prevalence of Professor Remus Lupin in this book as the new Dark Arts teacher.
