Synopsis: Harry Potter, along with his best friends, Ron and Hermione, is about to start his third year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Harry can’t wait to get back to school after the summer holidays. (Who wouldn’t if they lived with the horrible Dursleys?) But when Harry gets to Hogwarts, the atmosphere is tense. There’s an escaped mass murderer on the loose, and the sinister prison guards of Azkaban have been called in to guard the school…

What I thought about the book: I just can’t decide if this one or Order of the Pheonix is my favourite….
Prisoner of Azkaban gives us a little break from having Voldemort breathing down our necks, establishes the wizarding world more and gives a lot more character development. The story is starting to mature, it’s the turning point for the books going from Children’s to Young Adult.
Since I’ve read this twice already I decided to listen to the audiobook narrated by Stephen Fry. Fry is awesome but he occasionally makes the characters sound whiny especially Hermione.

  1. Prissy know-it-all and confident–yes; whiny, no, re: Hermione! 🙂 Hard to say which one is my favourite, as well. I like Goblet of Fire and The Deathly Hallows. But they’re all good!
