Harry Potter is lucky to reach the age of thirteen, since he has survived the murderous attacks of the feared Dark Wizard Voldemort three times. 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?

~My Review~

Now this one I loved! Just wasted a whole Saturday reading it and it didn't even feel like a waste. My love for Mr. Potter has been officially established. Better late than never right?

All of the character came alive for me in Prisoner of Azkaban. The mystery was riveting and the relationships are feeling more real and substantial. I don't think there is one thing about this book that I didn't love.

My Rating: 5/5
