Title: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Author: J.K. Rowling
Heylo all! I read this book about two months ago and I am finally getting down to the review. So Prisoner of Azkaban was the best out of the series that I’ve read so far. The plot was the most captivating and mysterious than the first two and it never had a boring part. Usually in the beginning of the books when Harry is with the Dursleys, it’s so boring but this time it wasn’t. Harry turning his aunt into a balloon was one thing but the whole atmosphere of the Dursley home was funny that summer.
The new character Sirius Black was a nice addition to the rest. The entire thing was like an escaped convict from Alcatraz being on the loose which is pretty scary. There was not a lot of action in this book, it was more of just waiting for something to happen eventually. There were so many sketchy characters: Sirius Black obviously then there was Professor Lupin, who I never guessed was a werewolf but I should have because ‘Lupin” duh, then there were the creators of Marauder’s Map with names that sound like they belong to cats. Like I said, all very sketchy. I believed that Sirius was evil but when Hermione accused Lupin of helping him, I had doubts. I knew Lupin wasn’t evil because that would have been too obvious and Rowling is never obvious.
It was a surprise when Scabbers was Pettigrew. All those years living as a rat…that’s gotta do something to your self-esteem. He is such a coward though, it’s all very amusing. What shocked me was finding out that Sirius was Harry’s godfather. We get more insight on Harry’s father and find out he was a little sneaky which is cool. When Harry saw the stag and the stag happened to be a symbol of his father = emotions, emotions. I found it so touching when Sirius offered Harry the chance to live with him. :’) To be honest, when Sirius had to go incognito and Harry couldn’t live with him anymore, I was probably more disappointed than he was.
It was cool finally figuring out how Hermione managed to go to all her 1,001 classes in the same day at the same time. That is pure dedication. Anyway, thanks for reading if you read. Like, comment so we can talk! 🙂
