Harry Potter & the Prisoner of Azkaban,
By A Customer
This review is from: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Book 3) Paperback (Paperback)
Unlike most people, I did not like the Philosopher's Stone all that much. I mean, I wasn't addicted and all that. But the Chamber of Secrets started the craze..I mean, I am bowled over by Rowling's talent and imagination. These books have so many different levels. I am 22, and I see something in it for myself. I think people who smirk that it is only for kids are those talentless kinds of people who talk to their children in those annoyingly high-pitched voices.
Azkaban is prolly my favourite Harry Potter book. The action is simply riveting...my eyes were stapled to the book right from the first page, until the last. And it left my mind with a flutter, and I just lay there thinking of its characters, trying to recreate some of its magic in my mind. The Dementors, Buckbeak, Hagrid, Professor Trelawny, Professor Lupin...oooh my! What a host of amazing creations! And the humour simply kills me! It has none of that Enid Blyton feelgood pretentiousness.
Of course, other reviewers before me have laid the gist of the story but the real thrill and fascination in HP lies in the ending, in Azkaban. By that time, I had acquired what I consider to this day to be my favourite Harry Potter character (shhhh, no names ;P)
Ah well, I am an aspiring writer, and I wish to thank JK for letting child-like imagination and wonder seep into my world. Harry Potter is just wizard!
