Review: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling

Since it’s twenty years since Harry Potter first wielded his wand, we’re getting through each of the books in turn here on Baking Thad Books. Harry’s third adventure, the Prisoner of Azkaban is his most thrilling adventure yet.

Now in his third year, Harry has his eyes set firmly on the House Cup, as well as fending off werewolves, taming half-horse-half-bird hippogriffs, sneaking past the ghastly Dementors, and doing his best to get one over on Malfoy.

The Prisoner of Azkaban is the most exciting adventure so far, though the series seems to have taken a turn down a much darker route this time around. The tension is high with the threat of Voldemort in the air, and the Divination class cranks up the atmosphere even higher – Professor Trelawny can see shadows of the dangers that lie ahead, but what will happen exactly? And why does she keep on predicting Harry will die?

Still, it has one of the most exciting Quidditch games you’ll ever find.

I highly recommend it – I hopped off down to the library to grab the fourth book almost as soon as I finished it.

So what do you think? Have you read it? Did you like it? Would you recommend it?

  1. I adore The Prisoner of Azkaban. It’s one of the best books of the series. The big reveal in the Shrieking Shack is a powerful chapter, not to mention the adventure with the Time-Turner.
    If you can, you should buy the books instead of going to the library, because you’ll want to reread them several times in the future.

        Have fun with Goblet of Fire. Great things happening in that book. The best one, Deathly Hallows, is yet to come, so you’ve got wonderful reading times ahead of you.

  2. The Prisoner of Azkaban is my favorite movie of the series, but Deathly Hallows is definitely my favorite book. I’ve reread the series at least a half-dozen times, and every time you find out more and more about the fantasy world JK Rowling created! Hope you keep going with the series! 🙂
