One of the best in the series,
This review is from: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Book 3) Paperback (Paperback)
I have just said how much I really did not like The Chamber Of Secrets. Well now I am going to tell you how much I enjoyed The Prisoner Of Azkaban. This is probably one of Joanne Rowling's greatest achievements. It was as if she had got herself together and was really ready to write a major masterpiece. For that was what ended up being the final piece: nothing short of a masterpiece.
In this books, we still get the angry times when we see Harry bullied by the likes of his family and Malfoy. We also see him go through tense and scary situations: when he has just left his family and notices a black dog in a dark alleyway and also when he thinks he is going to get expelled.
This books introduces the nightmarish Dementors that really do live up to their name. There is nobody like them. They are horrible, disgusting, dangerous and evil. As we go through the novel, Harry learns to fight tese gruesome beings from Hell (as that is what Azkaban is really like). We travel with harry through the book as he realises that the person who was meant to be the most trusted person in the world to him - his godfather - is really after him and he is the prisoner of Azkaban.
In this novel, we learn a lot of things and we learn that Harry really is made of stronger stuff then people actually think he is. It was an utter joy to read this novel and I know that loads of people think the same. There is nothing better then picking up this book and reading it. I keep going back to this novel and never tire of reading it. When I get to the end, I am so excited because I just read it again.
