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.

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

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 currently, I have to agree. I liked the story, the characters, everything really. Finished this one really quick.

The only thing that sort of scares me is: will the book live up to my expectations on re-read? (*fingers crossed 'cause I sure hope it does*)

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - Stephen Fry,J.K. Rowling Stephen Fry hasn't disappointed yet! This book is so full of mystery--intrigue. Everyone is keeping secrets from Harry, and while they believe it's for his own good, it never is! They all praise him as the "Boy Who Lived" and then treat him with kid gloves. And in the end, it always does more harm than good, because he ALWAYS finds out! Harry usually finds out in the worst way and it's never the full story. Then he flies off half-cocked.

In the end he finds new allies, and while he's heart broken that they weren't able to clear Sirius, there's hope that they will eventually. And now he knows that someone that his parents loved and trusted is there behind the scenes looking out for him.

The sad part is that this is the end of that little bit of innocence the trio are clinging to. After this, it gets really dark and just gets worse and worse until the climax.
