As always with Rowling's books, I loved Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban! JK Rowling's words have a curious habit of coming to life, and her characters are funny, and realistic. One of the greatest things about Harry Potter, is that they improve with each book, and you can clearly glimpse the clever, intricate plot Rowling has wove, with cleverly placed foreshadowing and seemingly innocent hints.

5.0 out of 5 stars A much darker story but a fabulous read with a little something for everyone
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 12 June 2019
In this book, as Harry approaches adolescence the tone changes. And we get a more interesting, but also more complex and darker story.

Unlike the static characters in other books or series, Harry is getting older, and getting less stable emotionally. The book still appeals to both children and adults but it involves some horror creatures, Dementors and there is lot of focus on Harry’s parents' deaths.

The great thing for children is that the familiar, relatable characters are being brought to life and come across as very realistic. Harry’s friendship with Ron and Hermione takes a different direction in this instalment. Hermione is being forced to make tough choices that impact Harry but Ron in particular. With who she is in constant disagreement. But the book also has an exceptionally strong set of secondary characters like Professor Lupin, the Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, a great new character that hides a big hairy secret. Then there is Professor Trelawney for Divination studies. While Hagrid displays his love of all magical creatures. Professor Snape remains enigmatic so that you continue to question his true motives. Cedric Diggory and Cho Chang, who play important roles in later books of the series are introduced as well

The book has are many fun, unexpected and exciting plot points. Many elements in this story are not what they appear at first sight, take for example Sirius Black a prison escapee, who is believed to have betrayed Harry’s parents. The mystery of Lord Voldemort murder of Harry's parents is increasingly central and new details are revealed. And the climax was exhilarating and intense.

Our daughter had to be forced to put the book down. And when pushed for favourites, Prisoner of Azkaban is her favourite Harry Potter book, if not among all the books she has read.
