Name: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Harry Potter #3)
Author: J.K. Rowling
Genre: YA, Series
Rating: 


J. K. Rowling continues to bewitch readers everywhere with the third book in her magical Potter series, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Harry's ongoing exploits, along with those of his contemporaries, teachers, and relatives, are as imaginative, entertaining, and mysterious as ever. For during Harry's third year at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, he must face his greatest challenge yet: a confrontation with Sirius Black, an escaped convict and madman who is rumored to be in cahoots with Harry's archenemy, the Dark Wizard Lord Voldemort. This alone would be daunting enough, but Harry's task is made even more trying when he discovers that Sirius is suspected of being the one who killed Harry's parents.

For Harry, the Hogwarts campus has always been a sanctuary, but when Black escapes from the horrifying clutches of Azkaban Prison, all clues suggest the madman is headed for Hogwarts and Harry himself. As a result, the school starts to feel more like a prison than a sanctuary as Harry finds himself constantly watched and under guard. What's more, the terrifying Dementors - the horrifying creatures who guard Azkaban Prison - are lurking about the campus looking for Black. And their effect on Harry is a devastating one.

Still, life at school offers plenty of distractions. Harry really likes the new teacher for Defense Against the Dark Arts, Professor Lupin, who might be able to teach Harry how to defend himself against the Dementors. But Professor Snape's behavior toward Lupin has Harry wondering what secrets the two men are hiding. Harry's friend Hermione is also acting very strangely. And, of course, there is the tension caused by the ongoing Quidditch competition between the Gryffindors and the Slytherins and the never-ending bullying of the Slytherin leader, Draco Malfoy.

REVIEW: 

The book starts with Harry being stuck at the Dursley's yet again. He feels alone but is looking forward to going back to Hogwarts and with Ron and Hermione. This book is about SIrius Black and of finding out what happened the night the Potters died. Everyone thinks Sirius betrayed them and practically let them get killed. But Harry must find truth. The Dementors are looking for Sirius and they get in the way at the Quidditch Games. Harry finds a horrible truth and must decide whether to do as his Dad would do, or to avenge them. In the end, the truth is cleared out and more than one life was saved thanks to Time. This book is one of my least favorite books, I just never thought this book was as good to me as Chamber of Secrets. 

The Good: More than one life is saved! Plus, Sirius Black is free again!

The Bad: I super dislike Draco more than usual here.
