Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

J.K. Rowling
For twelve long years, the dread fortress of Azkaban held an infamous prisoner named Sirius Black. Convicted of killing thirteen people with a single curse, he was said to be the heir apparent to the Dark Lord, Voldemort.Now he has escaped, leaving only two clues as to where he might be headed: Harry Potter's defeat of You-Know-Who was Black's downfall as well. And the Azkban guards heard Black muttering in his sleep, "He's at Hogwarts...he's at Hogwarts."Harry Potter isn't safe, not even within the walls of his magical school, surrounded by his friends. Because on top of it all, there may well be a traitor in their midst.

Time for book three! I remember this being my favorite of the books when I first read the series and after reading this that hasn't changed. My soft spot for the Marauders also has not changed.

Reread, so no rating. Still one of my favorites from the series.

Reflection

Last year I started re-reading the Harry Potter series. I grew up reading these books and this one has always been my favorite. There is something about believing all your troubles are history and that you'll finally have a place in the world to only have your hope dashed to bits. It's so real. Harry experiences that every school year to some degree when he has to leave to his family's for summer breaks, but he doesn't ever experience it as much as he does in book 3. He is so happy to finally have a piece of his parents, to have an adult that is his guardian who loves him, really loves him and it is all taken away because of the cowardice of one man, one rat. It's truly heartbreaking. Also heartbreaking, are the actions of the author of this series. She is a TERF (Trans-Exclusionary-Radical-Feminist) and her writings indicate a gross misunderstanding of Native cultures as she writes about them as they are all one. These are troubling and disappointing attributes. I hope to see these attitudes change, but I am not holding my breath. I am going to continue to re-read the series, but now I will read it through a more critical lens.

In Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter is going to school, but the murderer Sirius Black is after him. People say that he murdered 13 people with one curse and that he is loyal to Voldemort. He was kept in the prison that is called Azkaban (it is very bad there), but he has escaped and he might be going after Harry Potter because Harry Potter stopped lord Voldemort. The guards at Azkaban heard him muttering in his sleep, “He’s at Hogwarts, he’s at Hogwarts.” Harry is not safe at his school because there might be a traitor inside the walls of Hogwarts. I like this book because it is thrilling, suspenseful, and keeps you guessing. I would recommend this book to teenagers because it is scary and action packed.
