The blog for books and movies

Harry Potter is having a tough time with his relatives (yet again). He runs away after using magic to blow Uncle Vernon’s sister Marge who was being offensive towards Harry’s parents. Initially scared for using magic outside the school, he is pleasantly surprised that he won’t be penalized after all. However, he soon learns that a dangerous criminal and Voldemort’s trusted aide Sirius Black has escaped from the Azkaban prison and wants to kill Harry to avenge the Dark Lord. To worsen the conditions for Harry, vile shape-shifters called Dementors are appointed to guard the school gates and inexplicably happen to have the most horrible effect on him. Little does Harry know that by the end of this year, many holes in his past (whatever he knows of it) will be filled up and he will have a clearer vision of what the future has in store…

  1. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is the third book in the Harry Potter series and throughout, really begins to delve into the darker side of the magical world. The story line is based around the escape of an inhabitant (Sirius Black) at the Wizarding jail; Azkaban, an act never accomplished by any other wizard before. As far as everyone is concerned, Sirius is trying to track down Harry so that he may finish the work that dark lord started. Although it isn’t all to have seemed that way. Whilst J.K Rowling continues to make each book more engaging with great plots, this book’s edgier themes are suited to older children and teenagers.

  2. This book is a thrilling and scary book! The Dursley’s were having Aunt Petunia over for dinner that night, just like the Dursley’s she was horrible. Harry was sick of her and the Dursley’s talking bad about his mother and father and wished something bad upon Aunt Petunia. She basically turned into a huge human balloon and started floating away, this is when Harry left there house in the dark taking his Hogwarts stuff with him. He sat on the side of the pavement upset and annoyed because he knew he wasn’t supposed to use magic in the muggle world, it was forbidden. Harry saw something move in the bushes, it looked like a black wolf. Suddenly a bus pulled up and Harry got onto it. This bus is not a muggle bus, actually the muggles can not see it only wizards and witches can. He gets off at The Leaky Coldren and was expecting to get into trouble but just was let off with a warning because everyone was fearing for Harry’s life as Sirius Black had just escaped from Azkaban. Giving the name Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban. the story has these creepy things called Dementors that suck people souls out and make them live off the worst memories they have, and because Harry has suck a deep past, they are more so after him then for anyone else. Find out the rest when you read the book or watch the movie, it is sooooooooo good!!!

  3. Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban was amazing! I loved the story of Sirius Black and how he is Harry’s godfather. I didn’t like how Ron’s rat was the bad guy though. I absolutely loved how they used the time turner to save Sirius and BuckBeak and I loved how Lupin taught Harry the Patronus spell.

    This was one of my favourites and I loved the start how Harry blew up Aunt Marge!

    The story about the werewolves was very good and I loved BuckBeak and how they wanted to save him.

    9/10

    Harry’s back at Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry for his third year! There is a prisoner on the lose in the Muggle world, and Harry thinks nothing of it. That is, until her overhears Mr. and Mrs. Weasly arguing if they should tell Harry that the prisoner had escaped Azkaban, a top-security prison for witches and wizards, was after him. A long chain of secrets become revealed and Harry learns even more about his dreaded past, the one that gave him his scar. Add some drama over a Caring of Magical Creatures class featuring a Hippogriff, a man who was believed to be dead, and a teacher who was probably the best one Harry had ever had, then you have this book. And, If possible, Hermione spent even more time in the library! I loved this book and I am sure you will too!

  6. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is such a great book as it is a bit different to the rest of the books in the Harry Potter series. If you are interested in fantasy stories than I would definitely recommend this book.The story is narrated by Harry Potter who is in his third year at Hogwarts but instead of Voldermort chasing him, he is under the threat of death by an escaped prisoner named Sirius Black. Once you begin reading this book, you will not want to put it down. I would recommend this book to anybody over the age of 10 and I would rate this book 9.5/10.

    I love this book! because it’s another world but with wizards and witches and lots more, there is also a school for these kids to learn how to cast crazy spells and learning how to defend themselves against hideous and powerful creatures. My favourite part of the book is when The prisoner of Azkaban turns out not what i expected him to be, he is actually my favourite character because he can transform into this wonderful creature but it’s not he prettiest but he still looks majestic! He does these crazy things for a reason that he cant’t control but you’ll find out when you read it! I can actually relate to Harry and i because we both are unusually and full of surprises(also i want to be him!) I have no dislikes on the book i love how it lifts me off my feet and makes me imagine that i’m actually there! If i could change something in the book i would change NOTHING. I would recommend thins to anyone who has ever seen the movie because when you start to read it has more then what the movie showed! People with big imaginations would love to read this book but i think everyone would love this wonderful book.

    This series of Harry Potter movies is extremely popular amongst all age groups. This is such an intriguing and magical tale of a young boy Harry Potter. This particular movie explores Harry in hogwarts as usual however he is faced with many difficulties and new training mechanisms. You expect the unexpected! I really recommend this movie to others, as I really enjoyed it and I have no doubt that anyone else reading these views wouldn’t. I rate this movie a 10/10.

    I remember when I was really little, and sometimes scared of reading or especially watching the other Harry Potter books and movies, I always had this fascination of the Prisoner of Azkaban. This one, the third book in the series has always been my favourite book of the series, if not, ever!
    This book is one where almost immediately, it sucks you in, and you can’t put it down!
    I first read this book when I was quite young, but found it quite easy to read, yet time after time, I found myself reading this again, and again.
    My favourite character of this book is definitely Sirius as I found that he was completely unlike I thought he would be and I feel that he was just misunderstood.
    My favourite part of this book is when Harry and Hermione free Buckbeak the Hippogriff and Sirius at the end.
    My least favourite part is when Pettigrew changes into rat form as I don’t really like rats.
    I would not change anything in this book and would recommend it to absolutely anyone as this book and the others in the series are classics and as I read these books from a very young age.
    I rate this book a 10/10 as I have always and will always love it!

    Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is by far my favourite book in the whole series and maybe even my favourite of all time. It’s one of those stories that immediately sucks you in with its mysteries and detail, and leaves you wanting more. The reason that I like this one so much is because it doesn’t have Voldemort in it, it’s simply about Harry and his friends in their awkward adolescence phase. It gives a lot of insight into what happened to James and Lily Potter as well as their own friends too. The novel begins with Harry’s rather mundane life away from Hogwarts and how he manages to escape on the impressive Knight Bus, and somewhere along the way Harry also ‘blew up’ his aunt and saw a scary dog. The dialogue by J.K Rowling is always funny and this book was no exception, which was important because from the fourth book onwards; the series gets very serious. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is the book that you would take on a long trip that makes it shorter and overall, this book is fantastic.

It introduces an extremely important character, and once you have read all the books you will realise that. It is written very well and as all the other books it grabs you in and doesn’t let go! The whole plot escalates more as the story evolves! I rate this book 10/10 and it is a must read.

    This book is magnificent! Quite frankly, the entire Harry Potter series is magnificent, and this book is no exception. J. K. Rowling introduces us to another selection of vibrant characters that one didn’t meet in the previous books. From Buckbeak, the serene hippogriff to Sirius Black, mad and menacing in appearance, to Remus Lupin, the finest defence against the dark arts teacher in the entire series, as I believe.
    However, this book is also the point in the series where things begin to take a dark turn. In truth, the darkest part of the series begins in the following book, ‘Harry Potter And The Goblet of Fire’, so this book provides a lovely taste of the darkness for the reader, to help them decide if they wish to continue reading the series. I hope the answer would be ‘yes’ for most people.
    Overall, I would rate this book 9/10, because nothing ever gets a 10, and I would only recommend it to people who have read the previous two books.

It is so sad to see the terrible and hard life that Harry had, but it is great to see him finally start to see some hope in his life and overcome all his problems that he experiences. I love how Harry, Ron and Hermione stick together throughout the book and together they are able to overcome all the struggles that they face. Right from the moment I opened this book I did not want to put it down as I wanted to know what was going to happen next. It is such an interesting book and I loved reading it. It is definitely one of my favourite books I have ever read. I would definitely recommend this book to others as it has a great story line and you won’t want to stop reading.

    I really liked this book because of the story line. I liked it because of what happened and how the characters developed. My favourite part of this book was when we meet Remus Lupin on the train for the first time. My favourite character was Harry Potter because he shows a lot of courage in this book and how he leads Hermione and Ron to find the answer of this story. I can relate to Lupin because he is a kind person who always looks out for other people before himself and he always cares about the people he loves most. Again I love everything that happened in this book and i wouldn’t change any of it because these books are amazing and fold out into stories that can be used in the present. I recommend this book for people who are excited about thrills, adventures, magic, friendship, teamwork, family and mysteries.

    “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Askaban” is probably my favourite book in the Harry Potter series. I use to get so scared because of the werewolf but that made me love it even more. My siblings and I have started reading the series recently but I read it to my little brother and he got so frightened he had to sleep in mum and dad’s bed that night…and two more nights after that. I got in trouble for letting him watch the movie with us with us later :3 My favourite character is Hermione because she is incredibly smart and I really admire her for that. My favourite scene is when Hermione punches Draco in the face. My siblings and I cracked up when that happened and replayed the scene over and over again. I definitely love this movie more than any others and I recommend it to anyone and everyone. A solid 10/10!!!

  26. In the third Harry Potter book we are see the ‘notorious mass murderer Sirius Black’. Right from the start we see the fear that Sirius portrays especially when he ‘broke into Hogwarts’. When Harry sees the ‘omen of death’ we also become worried about the outcome of the book. My favourite character would have to be Harry or Sirius because we don’t expect the ending of them coming together in a what would be a long relationship between the two. The end part was so beautiful and heartfelt, I was actually smiling as I read the book. I would recommend this book to any over the age of 13 and I defiantly rate this book 11/10! So beautiful!

    The Prisoner of Azkaban was a book that was really hard to get my head wrapped around, and I had to read it a couple of times to actually understand what it meant. But when I finally figured it out, I was so happy I read it those extra times, Hermione is my favourite character in this book. She is extremely determined and driven to get all her classes done and use her time wisely. I was inspired by her in this book, to be so attached to her studies is amazing, and then for her device to be so important in the end had me hooked! I was very scared reading about the part when Professer Lupin and Sirius Black start fighting because I could visualise it so well in my head – which was not really a good thing! Apart from those parts, I really enjoyed this book as it challenged my way of thinking and imagination, because I had such an image in my head and then when I saw the movie it was totally different! I rate this book 10/10

    The third book in this series really fits into the puzzle of the two others. I think it is amazing how J.K Rowling has thought of all these ideas, I personally could never have thought all this up!! The way the characters are all so different, the way she describes them all is just amazing, when I meet a new character I can see it forming in my mind, it’s just incredible!!

    Harry Potter and the prisoner of askaban is amazing. So many secrets are revealed once more. Harry finds someone special to him. But Harry knows something different. A killer is after him.

He finds so many lies, but then finds more truth.

    Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban is the exciting third book in the Harry Potter series. It was a great book just like it’s predecessors and it filled many of the holes in Harry’s past, which was both informative and interesting. In Harry’s third year at Hogwarts he faces many new challenges, including the Dementors, a grave prediction and a mass murderer escaped from Azkaban. This book was quite a good book, but not as good as many of the others, although as with all of J.K. Rowling’s books, it is written at an extremely high standard. In this book, Harry grows up a lot, as he learns new magic that will help him defeat his enemies, and set right the wrongs of his past. One particular magical object that intrigued me was Dumbledore’s time turner, an object used to turn back the clocks. I, along with many others I am sure, couldn’t help wondering what I could do with that type of power. But, alas, for I am just a simple muggle, or maybe my Hogwarts letter go lost in the post! I would recommend this for everyone, along with the movie.

  44. I loved Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban because I think it was really exciting and I didn’t want to put the book down. My favourite part of the book was when they were in the shrieking shack towards the end and Harry finds out the truth behind Sirius Black’s story. My favourite character is Hermione because she is really smart and I really like how she never wants to break the rules or get in trouble yet she always seems to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. My least favourite part of the book was when Sirius was locked in the tower and Hermione and Harry had 5 minutes (well before the time turner showed up) to save Sirius because even though you have seen the movie and everything ends well you still feel nervous and really scared for Harry and Hermione because you think maybe they won’t get there in time. I would definitely recommend the book because I think it is a great book for if you want to leave your life for half an hour and be pulled into a world of magic.

  45. Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban, is the third book in the Harry Potter series, written by J.K Rowling. It is Harry’s 3rd year at Hogwarts, and oh no, the Dementors come and take charge!! I loved the movie and book because it is just like any other Harry Potter book I have loved watching and reading. My favourite part in the book/movie was when Harry and Hermione, left Ron in the Hospital/ Hospital Wing building and they time travelled back in time, with her necklace. My favourite characters are Harry because he is strong, thoughtful, smart, talented and possesses the quality of courage, Ron because he is so funny when he is scared of everything, very brave when he was bitten and being dragged by Sirius Black/ The Grim and of course Hermione because she is super, smart, deep in thought and absolutely incredible! Sadly, I can’t really relate to any of the characters other than Hermione because I think we are both very smart, and we think the same. (LOL!!) My least
    favourite part in the movie/ book is when Ron was taken by the ankle by The Grim/ Sirius Black because he ended up in hospital and was badly injured, and when Harry meets Sirius Black and Peter Pettigrew for the first time, because anything could have happened for them to be hurt or even death. If I were J.K Rowling, I wouldn’t want or have to change anything in the book, because I like it just the way it is, the way I read it. I would recommend this book/ movie to any person, because I am positive that they will love Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban movie and/or book, and the rest of the series as well. I think any type of person would love this book/movie, especially people who are into magic, and the make-believe stories. So, my advice would be, watch the movie, read the book, even do both because no matter what, everyone, including you, will and should love Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban, and of course the rest of the book and movie series!!

My favourite characters are Harry because he is strong, thoughtful, smart, talented and possesses the quality of courage, Ron because he is so funny when he is scared of everything, very brave when he was bitten and being dragged by Sirius Black/ The Grim the and of course Hermione because she is super, smart, deep in thought and absolutely incredible! Sadly, I can’t really relate to any of the characters other than Hermione because I think we are both very smart, and we think the same. (LOL!!) My least favourite part in the movie/ book is when Ron was taken by the ankle by The Grim/ Sirius Black because he ended up in hospital and was badly injured, and when Harry meets Sirius Black and Peter Pettigrew for the first time, because anything could have happened for them to be hurt or even death. If I were J.K Rowling, I wouldn’t want or have to change anything in the book, because I like it just the way it is, the way I read it. I would recommend this book/ movie to any person, because I am positive that they will love Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban movie and/or book, and the rest of the series as well. I think any type of person would love this book/movie, especially people who are into magic, and the make-believe stories. So, my advice would be, watch the movie, read the book, even do both because no matter what, everyone, including you, will and should love Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban, and of course the rest of the book and movie series!!

  47. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is the third book in the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. It is an action packed mystery novel and a tad scary. If you love werewolves, Dementors, spells and invisibility cloaks this is a great book that is chocablock with all of it! There are some parts that will make you cringe, laugh, freak out and tilt your head at. It has all of your favourite characters-Ron, Hermione and, of course, Harry. The best part, in my opinion, is when Ron finds out his pet rat is a real person. It is written fantastically by J.K.Rowling and I recommend it for people 9 years old and above. Five stars because it is Harry Potter, of course!

    I tried to pick up this book a couple of years ago, i basically forced myself to read it, honestly i couldn’t get into it.. I found it a tad boring, it was just one of those book where i would start reading and then my mind would wonder and i would be reading the words and not even taking it in.. Some people really enjoy the harry potter series but i couldn’t even read a chapter…

  49. I love this third book to the Harry Potter series!! As well as the movie because it’s a good representation of the book, although there are some bits where they’re not the same as the book. My favourite was when Harry and Sirius live together and become good friends and all happy, because he is the only family Harry has. My favourite character is Ron because he is funny is parts and his intelligence is funny as well. I love this whole book, so i wouldn’t change or i didn’t like any parts because it’s all good!! I would recommend this to anyone and people who loves, fantasy, humour and action because this book has all these elements.

  51. This book is my favourite of the whole series! I have read this once before and began reading it again by accident the other day! Once you pick it up you can’t put it down! J.K. Rowling has such a brilliant way of explaining what happens and creating an exhilarating plot. I can’t imaging the imaginative thinking that goes into this book. This book is so action packed the whole way through and each little part has a role that you realise in the end play’s a huge part! I love how even though he is extremely strong Harry Potter is effected by his families outcome in life and the fact that Sirius Black is his Godfather just makes the story in the end and lets Harry feel that he still does have family that are not muggles and who can relate to him in some way. This is an Awesome book!!!!!

  52. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban explores Harry’s troubles with his family, and the REAL story behind his parent’s death. After a supposed Death Eater – follower of Voldemort, the killer of Harry’s parents – escapes from Azkaban Demontors are set out to capture the villain. The Demontors are unforgiving creatures, they suck the good memories from a person and leave them with nothing but their terrifying ones. Unfortunately Harry encounters one on the way to Hogwarts. Along the way through this book Harry discovers that Serious Black, the escaped Death Eater, is Harry’s godfather. His only living relative aside from the Dursleys. Serious sold Harry’s parents to Voldemort, setting them up for death. Harry sets out to kill Black. With complication from Dementors along the way, and new discoveries formed this is an amazingly adventurous book filled with double sided stories, lies and hope. I highly recommend this book to ages 10+. Rate: 10/10!

  53. Harry Potter and the and the prisoner of azkaban is my favourite one out of the series! Its absolutely fantastic. One thing thoughm that I dislike about it is the turning back time thing. When i first read and watched it I found it quite confusing. But the first time I read it I couldn’t put it down. Once I finished it I read it again 3 times and after that I kind of got the undertsnading of it. It was so GOOD I love how they introduced dementors to it. It just made it a whole lot more exciting. My favourite part was when Harry and Serious were sitting on the hill looking over hogwarts. I loved it how they got to have some family time together and for Harry to know that he has someone else he can go to other than his mean old Uncle and Aunt. It was really nice and peaceful but then it turned ugly with professor lupin turning into a werewolf. Another part of the book was when Harry was out wondering at night and snape caught him so Harry said that he needed to keep his baig nose out of other peoples business, ahaha. My least favourite part though, was when they were doing that cupboard thing with professor lupin and when ron turned professor snape into and spider because I don’t like spiders. My favourite character in this book was hermione because she looked really pretty and was once again very helpful to the boys. I rate this book 10/10 and recommend it for anyone who loves fantasy and excitement!

  54. I loved the book it is one of my favourite books ever! It is just so intense and you dont really know what is going to happen next. My favourite Part of the book was when they were under the tree, and they were talking to Serious Black. It was so eventful and i just really wanted it to be a good ending.My favourite character would properly have to be Ron because he is always trying to keep Harry and Hermione happy, and he is just so funny. My least favourite character are the death eaters, they like to suck the happiness out of innocent people, they are very mean.
    Nothing at all, it is all to perfect to change, if you change one thing it would ruin the book. Cause everything joins together.I would recommend this book to everyone cause everyone would love this book it is just the type of book that everyone would like. The type of person that would like this book is someone who likes adventure and excitement cause i can tell you that this book is full to the top with it.

  55. I really enjoyed this book because it brought long lost family members together but in the weirdest way. I have to say Prisoner of Azkaban, the movie was better then the book. I found this book not as good as the others in the series and found it a bit boring, but that might have been because I had already seen the movie before I had red the book. I have to say I way a bit disappointed after reading this book.

  58. The wizard world is under lock-down when they hear that dangerous criminal believed to be working beside Voldemort, Sirius Black, has escaped the wizard jail, Azkaban. How could anyone escape from magic and the dreaded death eaters that guard the prison? If Black is working with Voldemort, then he must be after Harry Potter. So, along with the rest of the Wizarding World, Hogwarts goes into lock-down too. Surrounded by death eaters and under the watchful eye of the trusted Albus Dumbledore, how does Harry manage to end up facing the vicious crimal? And who is he REALLY fighting to keep his life, and the lives of his loved ones?
    The Prisoner of Azkaban keeps you thinking the whole time thanks to the fantastic writing from author J.K. Rowling.
    Rated a defnite 9 out of 10 (and a 10 out of 10 for the movie)

  60. This is the third Harry Potter book and the series is starting to get really really good(Even better than before).
    It’s once again about Harry, Ron and Hermiony, but this time there in their 3rd year. In this book Harry is in a lot of danger because Sirious Black has escaped from the wizard prison called Azkaban, and he’s ‘apparently’ coming after Harry. As people say Sirious Black way the man who led Harry’s greatest enemy (Voldemort) to his parents, and that was how they died. But as you would find out in the book Sirious isn’t the traitor it was someone else you wouldn’t even know was there. Harry finds out about how Sirious is his godfather and is the good man in the story, as he learns about his families past. Many new things happen in this book and it just makes it that much harder to stop reading.
    Over all this book is amazing and everyone should have a chance to read the wonderful story of Harry Potter in his third year.

  61. This book is a great read for anyone who is into mystery, action and humour all joined together. Sirius Black escapes from wizard prison, Azkaban, and is out to find Peter Pettigrew who is the man that betrayed Lilly and James Potter the nightthey were murdered but everyoneb thinks that Pettigrew is dead. They also think that Sirius has escaped from Azkaban to find and kill Harry, so dementors- guarders of Azkaban- are sent to guard Hogwarts. Harry finds out the shocking truth about Sirius that he finds hard to accept. Harry is on a quest for truth. This book is way better then the movie so make sure you read it! But be warned because once you pick it up, you can’t put it down!

  62. Wow, I loved this book! Out of all the Harry Potter books this one is the best for me. My favourite part of the book was defiantly the bit when Sirius scares Ron in his sleep and Ron thinks he is so cool because everyone keeps coming up to him and asking about it and asking him to tell the story of what happened. My favourite character is a tie between Sirius Black and Severus Snape and Remus Lupin. Because Sirius Black just wants to find and help his long lost godchild Harry Potter and be a good role-model while on the run from the law, Remus Lupin is just a teacher that happens to be a werewolf and just wants to help Harry overcome the effect that the dementors have on him so he doesn’t get his soul sucked and Severus Snape is really a good guy who was in love with Harry’s mum and just wants to help Harry but he does have a funny way of showing it.
    If I was going to relate to someone it would be Professor Snape because I guess he’s got to be cruel to be kind.
    I would recommend this to anyone and everyone but only if they have read the first and second books.

  65. Harry has run away becuase he had a fight with his aunt and uncle, (he blew up his uncle’s sister) after running away and having trouble with wizard busses harry finds himself back at hogwarts, with the knowledge that serial killer serious black is on the lose. through the book, I felt very sorry for harry, besides his friends, everyone treated him like an outcast. I mostly felt sorry for him when he found out that serious was his godfather. J.K Rowling really makes it feel like you are in the story with the characters. My favourite part of the book was at the end when he learns that his defence against the dark arts professor is a werewolf and serious is actually a good person. I love when they are at that lake and serious is very hurt and harry is trying to look after him, when lots of dementors come and suck the hapiness out of them. Then from across the lake the Harry from the future (becuase he and herminie went back in time to save serious from his trecherous fate) masters that big spell and all the demantors are forced to o away. I felt like jumping up and screamin ‘go Harry!0 I would definatly recommend this book, it is my favourite out of the Harry potter books. It’s way better then the movie.

  70. Hi,
    the book i am reviewing is Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Once again Harry enters the world of Hogwarts but instead of Lord Voldemort’s threatening prescence it is escaped killer Sirius Black and sources are suggesting that he is out to kill Harry. As Harry moves through his third yera at Hogwarts he begins to unravel more to his own history than he originally thought and with help from friend Hermione he can once again save lives in an intense climax that never ends in its twists and turns. This book is another fantastic Harry Potter adventure and follows on from the previous novels. I suggest reading this to any age group as it is both appealing to kids and adults a like
