Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved This One One of my favourite books of the Harry Potter series. We are introduced to new characters, including the formidable Sirius and Professor Lupin. Love, love, love the character Lupin - he acts as sort of a father figure to Harry, and it is really neat to see that relationship develop.

But when Harry, Ron and Hermione arrive at Hogwarts the atmosphere is tense, there is an escaped murderer on the lose and the guards of Azkaban have been called to search for this prisoner who is after the famous Harry Potter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looking Into Harry's Past These first books in the series are my favourite. This book sees a maturing of the series, with a look at Harry's past and more detail into He Who Cannot Be Named but at the same time Rowling hadn't turned it into the morose overly long books it would become starting at the fifth book. A wonderful book with a gentle maturing of Harry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Where the series became great! Although I liked the first two novels for the universe that they established, I felt both of them suffered from being written for too young of an audience. This entry was the one that convinced me that this series was great. It is darker, more mature, and the most fast-paced yet. I remember being a young teenager when I first read it and staying up all night to finish the last 100 pages since I couldn't put it down. This was also the first entry where I noticed how much I felt I was experiencing the school year with the characters, even if I read it in a matter of days. It actually felt like I was starting school with my friends. Christmas in the novel felt like Christmas in real life. Rowling crafts a great story with compelling new characters and a new plot that feels important and even realistic in this world.

The pictures are so vibrant and stunning, and the same brilliant story hasn't changed. The only thing I did not like was how effeminate and almost prepubescent Harry looked on each cover, he didn't seem to grow up! All in all they are remarkable covers, I loved it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban: He Grows Up As Harry and friends enter the emotionally charged teen world, this third volume in the series has become one of my favourites. From tormented family memories to gruesome mass murder to infernal government corruption, our heroes face many problems beyond the typical for thirteen year olds. And they find ways to conquer these trials and emerge triumphant. Harry, Ron and Hermione fight the power! So many topics and themes to cover in what could be described as the first truly adult book in the series. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling starts with our first real taste of the corruption inside the Ministry of Magic, since it is not spelled out in the text, but I firmly believe they are aware of Sirius Black's innocence. Just a feeling, a vibe so to speak, I pick up from J.K. all along the way. But this is kept top level secret, hence even the Hogwart's Professors not knowing the truth. Harry is treated like a child (to prevent him from finding the truth), lied to (once he starts getting pieces of the truth), and not listened to (when he speaks the truth). All these experience give him the courage and knowledge to speak back to the know nothing adults throughout the other tales to come. Sometimes it feels like Harry in the only honest man in a room full of liars. Good for him! The central issue the Ministry of Magic is trying to scrub clean is another decidedly mature concept. Never shown, even by Pensieve, is the mass murder slash terrorist attack which Sirius Black was imprisoned for. Death has been apart of J.K.'s writings straight from the start, and the subject of parental demise is a common trope, but the destruction of so many unnamed innocents is slightly more rattling then the norm for a book aimed at young adults. And I give J.K. enormous credit for this. Once again, she redefines the genre. Which brings me to the aforementioned parents, James and Lily. Previous books have had to deal with Harry's grief, and learning more about them. But now, with the secret truth of the betrayal brought to life, Harry's hatred of his parents murderer is far more tangible. While Voldemort may have zapped the spell, he is simply formless either floating around unfound, the wretched Black on the other hand is very real and very physical. Someone who could be wrought vengeance upon. The interesting twist is how, when the ultimate truth is finally known, Harry shows mercy on the real killer. Let the courts decide. It may not work out well is this book, but this decision proves fruitful much later. This entrance to maturity is great and much welcome. J.K. is not artificially holding her characters in some strange time loop, but letting them and the stories move forward. This first taste brings happiness galore. And with the promise of Voldemort's return, this glee should last awhile. Scoopriches

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The waters are getting deeper and a little darker I don't know what it is about these books...maybe it's something about the way J.K. Rowling spins her tales...maybe it's the way you end up really feeling for the characters...maybe it's just that she's created a world that readers can truly get lost in, but I love them. This book is my favorite, by far. There are so many inner twists and turns, and at the end of the book it was like everything suddenly made sense and tied together so well. I love what Harry finds out about his "family," so to speak. I definitely got my hopes up for poor Harry when I found out that there was a chance that he might be able to get away from the Dursleys and then my heart ached for him when there was a sudden change to that idea. Some of my favorite characters are introduced in this book, especially Sirius Black and Remus Lupin. I hope that we'll run into Lupin somewhere in the future. Also, I really liked that we found out that Harry, Ron and Hermione weren't the first group of good friends at this school (as in Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs) and that Harry and Malfoy's animosity towards each other wasn't the first either (Snape). Dumbledore, once again, never ceases to amaze me with how great of a character he is. Continuing with the trend of the series, this one is increasingly becoming dark (although not by too much yet), what with the dementors and the inner supporters of Voldemort. Overall, like I said before, this is my favorite book of the series, not necessarily because I can relate to this story, but because I had such a response, emotionally-speaking, to this book.
Date published: 2012-09-10
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I liked this one better the second time around. Harry has just turned 13 and will be returning to Hogwart's for his third year. Just before school starts, a dangerous criminal, Sirius Black, escapes from the prison in Azkaban,.The guards from Azkaban, Dementors, will stand guard around Hogwart's until Black is captured and returned to prison. I think I liked this one better the second time around. It is a little bit longer than the first two books, and a little more complex, I think. It really picked up toward the end. At least, there seemed to be more going on in comparison to the first two books. A couple of characters who are more prominent in later books are introduced in this one, so that was kind of interesting. They played such small parts in this one, I didn't remember that they were in this one at all, but I guess that's part of the beauty of rereading (which I rarely do).

I loved the aventure that Harry and all his friends takes you on in this book, and how you find out some more stuff about Harry and his parents, and also you get to meet his godfather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Amazing This book has remained my favourite Harry Potter book since I first read it in 1999. It was what got me hooked on the series. If you are planning to only read one Harry Potter book, read this one. (Side note: Sirius Black was introduced in POA, my favourite character!!)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from JK Rowling keeps upping the ante. Wow! This storyline was very complicated but it all makes sense in the end. This is a tougher book to read for younger children but my 8 year old seemed to grasp it alright. He may not get the intricacies of the relationships since there was a lot of background story revealed between Harry's Dad, James, and his friends. But it makes the story so rich. Every time JK Rowling reveals a little of what happened in the past it just keeps making the reader want more. I read Book 1-3 in quick succession over 1 week a few months before book 4 was released. I felt lost in those months not knowing what will happen to Harry.
Date published: 2009-07-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! My favorite in the Harry Potter series by far! The addictive wizarding world and compelling characters still lie in place, more are introduced, and Harry's past parent's lives come slightly into focus. I fell in love with this book!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Prisoner of Azkaban This is the third book in the Harry Potter series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I solemly swear that I am up to no good....best in the series! This story is still my favourite in the series, even now, after all of the books have been released. The time travelling plot was by far the most captivating for me. While it is not the longest, it was still such a great story that I pretty much have half the book memorized at this point. I also loved Sirius Black's introduction to the story, as he was one of my favourite characters in the series at the time. Bravo, Rowling!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic The third book in the harry potter series. Full of magic and adventure like never before. In this book Harry Potter learns who betrayed his parents to Lord Voldemort, that he has a godfather named Serius, and has been living with an animal that is an animagus (a person who transforms into an animal). This is a cleaver book and I recommend this book to anyone who hasn't read it yet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Jim Dale gives a stunning audiobook performance! Okay, first off, I love the books, so total bias in this review. The third (and the original version, not the oddly altered Americanized one) of the Harry Potter phenomenon, I actually read these for the first time a few years ago when I had pneumonia and was bedridden for a week or two. Fun and light, these are the tales of the young Harry Potter, a boy who finds out he's a wizard on his 11th birthday, and that he survived an evil wizard that killed so many others. By this third book, Harry is learning lessons on the philosophy of fear, on friendship, and is turning into a little adult (with all the inherant annoyances of a thirteen year old boy). This was probably my favourite of the first five books, actually, as the character development is dead on, it broke a pattern that I was finding really annoying, and - best of all - the ending isn't all happy and tied up in a bow. Listening to these books is a rare and wonderful treat - Jim Dale's characterizations are now the voices I hear in my head, not the actor voices from the movie. He did this so well I was laughing out loud at parts, or actually getting all tense at other parts. Ron is dead on, as is Hermione. But it's Jim Dale's Hagrid that will have you smiling every time. The pacing is perfect (kudos to both Rowling and Dale for that one), you never feel lagging or flight. Thumbs up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban This book in my opinion is the best book of the series because it's the only one that Harry potter plays the Whole season of Quidditch and goes to Hogsmead. It is truly worth buying and reading over a million times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from suspense and history info This book is a very suspenseful story. It isn't a very action packed book which is good because you need some suspense in a series aswell as action I find. Sirus's real personality is a BIG shocker to Harry especially. I hope you choose to purchase this book. You'll for sure get your money's worth out of it ! I know I sure did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best book! Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is my favourite book for many reasons. The story is exciting and adventurous. My favourite character, Remus Lupin, shows up for the first time in that book. The new character is none other than the new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher. He is mine and Harry's favourite so far. He's a sweet character and I'm sure you'll enjoy him too. The third Harry Potter book has a lot of elements that both children and adults will like. It's the only Harry Potter book so far that isn't action packed. It has alot of suspense in it and i would suggest this book to you and your parents/children.

That’s how the novel “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” was for me, I just couldn’t put it down. This compelling book is about a boy named Harry Potter who is a courageous and intelligent wizard. Harry attends Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry for the third year, with his best friends Ron and Hermione. Harry doesn’t realize the events that will take place this year. If you like a real adventure and fantasy book that will have you hanging on every page you turn, then I recommend this thrilling and engaging novel to you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from **A Wizard*s Tale** I think that Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban is a very good book. J.K. Rowling is a very good writer. I really enjoyed this book. It is my favourite book. My favourite part is when Ron, Harry, and Hermione turn in the Slytherin kids. I felt kind of sorry for Hermione when she turned into a cat instead. It was a neat thought for her to think of. I never would have. I can't wait to read Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix. Keep writing Joanne!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ***Harry Potter's: Prisoner of Azkaban*** I think Harry Potter's Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling is by far my favourite out of the Harry Potter series. I greatly believe all the Harry Potter books but especially this one deserve a much higher rating than 5 stars. I'm only 15 but I truly think these books are the greatest I've ever read and I can't wait to read the next one to come out. I strongly recommend these books if you haven't read them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Godess Of The Gryffindors If only words could describe how wonderful this book is! Of the hundreds of books I've ever read, the Harry Potter series is truly the most magnificent, even WOW is an understatement to how great these books are, they bring a ray of light into the darkest days of your life, Harry and his friends are always up against new challenges, and constantly waging a war against the dark Lord Voldemort, it really doesn't get any better than this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One word: AMAZING!!!!!!! I thought that Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was simply one word: AMAZING! It starts off with Harry having to leave the Dursleys' house because he blew up his Aunt Marge after she'd insulted him and his parents for the thousandth time. He ends up staying at the Leaky Cauldron until school starts. On the last day there, he runs into Ron and Hermione. Ron's father (who is also there) warns Harry to be careful this year at Hogwarts, because there is an escaped murderer named Sirius Black who is after him. Throughout the year, Harry discovers secrets about his past: secrets that no one told him to keep him safe. He also discovers that Black keeps entering the castle, trying to get something or someone. I felt that this was an awsome book, because J.K. Rowling put so many twists and turns into this book, like why Black is trying to get into the castle, or why Hermione is acting so strangely, or why their new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher disappears once a month and is

Rowling's lively prose seizes our attention from the first loaded words, and her powers of invention, coupled with a fast-paced, suspenseful and often humorous plot, make this a welcome addition to books for middle readers.Rowling weaves a dense and exciting plot,suitable for a reader of any age could want.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Excellent Mesmerizing Tale Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is an excellent book full of mystery and suspense which mesmerizes you in the wonder of this amazing book. It was a great surprise to find out that Sirius Black is Harry's godfather when all along they thought he was trying to kill Harry. It was extremely exciting when Hermione and Harry go back in time in order to save Hagrid's bird and Sirius from having their lives taken for no good reason. It was kind of upsetting when Harry got the broom taken away from him when he had had the best broom in the school. And I hope that Harry can go to the World Cup Quidditch Tournament with Ron and the Weasley family.

You will have a chance to rediscover that elusive thing that first lead you to sit in the summer sun with a book open in your lap and lose yourself in the magic that is the printed page. Harry Potter does not force you to become a great reader in order to make itself interesting it instead makes itself into an impressive story and rewards you for immersing youtrself in it's magic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The first book i could never put down I'm probably another one of the kids who prefers to watch televison than read -I'm not saying I hate reading or anything, just that I could never find a book series that was something I could read without being bored. That was until I read my first Harry Potter book, The Prisoner of Azkaban. I refused to read it when i first got it, but after reading the first chapter, I got hooked! I could not fall asleep at unless I read at least one chapter. J.K Rowling describes her characters and all the events so well that getting a mental picture of them is unbelivably easy! This is an amazing book for people of all ages, from young children to their parents. No wonder mrs. Rowling has won many awards! Her storys alone deserve awards! On a scale from one to ten, I give it, and all the others that I've red so far, an eleven! This is probably the best book i've ever read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It pulls you in (overall of all 3 books so far) Although I don't feel comfortable to join in on popular, hot-at-the-moment events and rather be myself, I admit that I do enjoy the Harry books immersely. At first I was really skeptical and had snorted at the success of these books; then I decided to read the first book to find out what all the hype was about. I have to say that all the Harry books have a gripping storyline that pulls you in. Somehow, you just want to read the whole book and hope it never ends. (Actually, the main mystery of Harry's parents will be narrated throughout the 7 books, I think. This is just like the Japanese comic books where you have to follow every volume--and the series will sell, no doubt.) I know the books are classified as "children books", but I have always enjoyed other different books as well if they were worth reading. To me, it was the "feel" of the book that's important. In terms for children, Rowling's writing may not have very high "literature value" (like special writing devices, rhetorical questions and stuff) but the story itself is exciting enough to start a child reading. Congrats to Rowling for a nice beginning. Now let's hope that the upcoming books will not let us down.... (she has to work in this popularity...)

I literally could not put it down as I read far into the night. Although the book is obviously meant for kids of a younger age than myself, I would highly recomend it for people of all ages. For it is very well written and allows the imagination to soar as you picture the setting and characters of the book. I cannot wait to read the third book in the series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harry Potter number 3 - An excellent read Harry Potter and The prisoner of azkaban is the continuation of book two, the Chamber of secrets. It's all about Harry potter, an amazing 13 year old wizard, (since this is his third year in Hogwarts) Living with his horrid aunt and uncle along with is huge cousin, Dudley. When he goes back to his wizarding school, Hogwarts he encounters The dementors, horrible creatures who are always reminding Harry, inside his mind, of his parents death. But something else is bothering Harry. It's Sirius Black, the man who is said to be after Harry turns out to be not so bad. read on to find out and immerse yourself in this continuing advernture! I enjoyed this book very much, and would rate it 5 stars. The author really brought me into the book and made me want to keep reading on! A great read for 8 to 88!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from J.K. Rowling Does It Again! Dementors, Hippogriffs and Boggarts! These are just some of the wondrous creatures you'll learn about in the latest phenomenon by British author J.K. Rowling. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, being the third of what will be a seven series of books. In this sensational release Harry, accompanied by his two friends, Ron Weasly and Hermione Granger, arrives at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for his third year only to be faced with yet another threat. Not He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named (Lord Voldemort) whom he is so famous for defeating as an infant, but Sirius Black, a convicted wizard, who has escaped Azkaban, the wizard prison. And he's after Harry! But don’t believe everything you hear. We're also introduced to a new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, Professor Lupin, which is not surprising since they each seem to last no longer than a year. I am 35 years old and I have enjoyed this book very much, and my daughter has read it no less than 4 times! I strongly urge anyone who has yet to discover the magic of Harry Potter to purchase these amazing wonders! I think J.K. Rowling has exceeded even beyond her own expectations.
