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?
