Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Did a buddy read with one of my friends. Of course we chose Harry Potter, and since we share favourite book in the series it was an easy choice. AND THE BOOK WAS AMAZING!
The writing is so beautiful. The story so intriguing. Even though I’ve read this book a thousand times before I got excited and nervous (What if they don’t make it? I know they will, but still!). I laughed with Ron and got irritated on Hermione. Rereading Harry Potter is always a success!
The only thing that bugged me, I read the American edition, since that’s the one I own. (I didn’t know they had changed the title of the first book and words inside the books when I bought them.) But I will buy the British illustrated editions, I want to read the story as it was written.
“Harry Potter is lucky to reach the age of thirteen, since he has already survived the murderous attacks of the feared Dark Lord on more than one occasion. But his hopes for a quiet term concentrating on Quidditch are dashed when a maniacal mass-murderer escapes from Azkaban, pursued by the soul-sucking Dementors who guard the prison. It’s assumed that Hogwarts is the safest place for Harry to be. But is it a coincidence that he can feel eyes watching him in the dark, and should he be taking Professor Trelawney’s ghoulish predictions seriously?”
