Harry Potter : And the Prisoner of Azkaban
by J.K. Rowling
For twelve long years, the dread fortress of Azkaban held an infamous prisoner named Sirius Black. Convicted of killing thirteen people with a single curse, he was said to be the heir apparent to the Dark Lord, Voldemort.
Now he has escaped, leaving only two clues as to where he might be headed: Harry Potter's defeat of You-Know-Who was Black's downfall as well. And the Azbaban guards heard Black muttering in his sleep. "He's at Hogwarts...he's at Hogwarts."
Harry Potter isn't safe, not even within the walls of his magical school, surrounded by his friends Because on top of it all, there may well be a traitor in their midst.
Since the Harry Potter's book have already been talked about to death over the years *grin*, I decided to just say that I enjoy the book. I've already seen all the Potter's movies up to date, but just have not read all the books in the series. So even if I saw the movie, I know it going to be a little bit different from the book. Since some scenes from movie does not appear from the book. And I much prefer in reading the book first before the movie. But The Potter books in this case, was twist. I find both were entertained no matter which one I started out first. Yes some scenes were cut or add in, but still the movie were entertained as much as the book is too.
Keep in mind, I have not read all the book installments. In this book, I thought the turning back in time was interesting. And the result of who Harry's god-father is was surprising. I also see that Hermione and Ron bickering, will turn into a "I-hate-you, than I-Like-you" relationship. That one of the type of relationship I like. I still, sometime I feel that Ron was being a jerk and just clueless. But I like him anyway...don't know why *LOL. I love looking in J.K Rowling world of wizard and meet all the amazing kids and looking forward to watch them grown up to adult hood at each installment. All in all, I did enjoy the book. And I'm looking forward to reading book #4 soon!
Grade: 4 stars
