"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."

Great story, but … the narrator does a terrible impression of girls voices!

Okay, once you place your hands on these Harry Potter books, it automaticlly produces a glue that sticks your eyes on to its self and your body on to whatever you are reading on. So caution, people, never read Harry Potter books on buses, subways, sky trains, etc. Mainly because you might miss your stop!

I read "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" for the first time and it was amazing. So far I think that it is the best book of the series. I loved how the characters in the book were all so interesting and had a great back story. So as you are reading, you get to know the characters. It was such a great book that I could not put down. I want to continue reading the Harry Potter series, they are great!

I recently reread the Harry Potter series and I loved it! Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban has got to be my favorite Harry Potter book because of the detail and the twist in the end. In the book, we get to meet some of the characters who will play a large role later in the series and get a deeper look into Harry Potter and his friends. I recommend the Harry Potter series to everyone because it is a must read for everyone of any age no matter where you live or what your interests are!

"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?
