"For twelve 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 Azkaban guards heard Black muttering in his sleep, "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."

I am a HUGE HARRY POTTER FAN, since childhood till now. There are 7 titles in total, where the last book is split into 2 parts. All of these series have already been made into movies, which in my opinion, is better to read all of the books FIRST before you delve into the films. Books generally have more details and sometimes certain parts of the movies are different than the novels - surprise, surprise!

This 3rd book is 1 of my favourites, especially the middle and ending became quite shocking for me! All of Harry's adventures were never dull and always filled with great surprises with his 2 best friends, Ron and Hermione. If you particularly love adventures, fantasy, magic, wizards/witches, and surprises, Harry Potter is the one recommended for you!

This has been my favorite so far. The main thing I didn't like about this one was how much they focused on Ron's rat and on Hermione having an impossible schedule. I thought the movie was alright but I liked the audiobook more. I am excited to see what happens next with Sirius Black.

What a continuation! The introduction of new characters, such as Remus Lupin and Sirius Black was just what the story needed. And with them come a deeper look at Snape’s feelings about Harry.

The story of Harry Potter gets darker as he goes back for his third year at Hogwarts. This is the beginning of the characters realizing that Dumbledore can’t solve everything. There is also a deeper look at the main trio.

This book is a great third addition to the Harry Potter series, and it promises that next year will be even better and darker. This book series grows with Harry, as well as its audience. Recommended if you want more of the Wizarding World!

(Illustrated Edition)
I'm honestly surprised by how well the artist is improving his game, with every book that gets released. The artwork stays approachable for all ages, but it does get darker much like the book itself did.

In this series by J.K. Rowling, this was the book that made me realize that I was part of something that was going to go big. In this third book, you start to see the development of a plan - that extends a little beyond a young boy going after a singular bad guy over and over again. I loved the introduction of Harry's Godfather Sirius Black - who is one of my favorite multi-layered characters in the entire series.

"Right, Neville," said Professor Lupin. "First things first: what would you say is the thing that frightens you most in the world?"

Neville looked around rather wildly, as though begging someone to help him, then said, in barely more than a whisper, "Professor Snape."

Harry Potter is heavily protected at Hogwarts from Sirius Black, yet he always finds a way to get into an adventure! Will he survive this one?

SAPPHIREBEAR15 Jun 19, 2012

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban opens on the night before Harry's thirteenth birthday, when he receives gifts by owl post from his friends at school. The next morning at breakfast, Harry sees on television that a man named Black is on the loose from prison. At this time, Aunt Marge comes to stay with the Dursleys, and she insults Harry's parents numerous times. Harry accidentally causes her to inflate. Harry leaves the Dursley's house and is picked up by the Knight Bus, but only after an alarming sighting of a large, black dog. The Knight Bus drops Harry off at Diagon Alley, where he is greeted by Cornelius Fudge, the Minister of Magic. He rents a room and awaits the start of school. In Diagon Alley, Harry finishes his schoolwork, admires a Firebolt broomstick in the window of a shop, and after some time, finds his friends Ron and Hermione. At a pet shop, Hermione buys a cat named Crookshanks, who chases Scabbers, Ron's aging pet rat. Ron is most displeased. The night before they all head off to Hogwarts, Harry overhears Ron's parents discussing the fact that Sirius Black is after Harry.

After barely surviving an attack from Dementors, Harry Potter arrives to Hogwarts School od Witchcraft and Wizardry, excited and ready to start his third year in magical education! But the school is currently under threat by a criminal named Sirius Black, therefore Dementors, creatures who suck out all the happiness in people, have come to guard the School. But why do the Dementors tend to affect Harry more than everybody else? And what is the REAL story behind Black's history?
