STUDENT REVIEW: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling (Harry Potter, Book 3)

Published 2004

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? –Goodreads

Review by Douglas

Four Stars. I liked all the twists that happen when you least expect them in the book. Throughout this book my heart skipped a few beats. I could talk about this book all day but I can’t give any of it away. I did not like the confusing parts that aren’t explained until the end of the book.

Favorite Quote

“What you fear most is fear itself.”-Remus Lupin

Recommendation

I would recommend this book for anyone who loves suspense, and is fascinated by mythical creatures and the wonders of magic.

I am a middle school English Language Arts and Social Studies teacher.
