I have grown up with harry potter, and watched the movies at age three or four. When I watched them, I thought there was no way the books could be better than the movies, but they where! I have read the harry potter series many times, and still the books never get old. One of my all time favourite books!

Of all the books in the Harry Potter series, this one is by far my favorite because Harry, Ron, and Hermione are just starting to act like a pro team but are still precious smol beans!!

This book is obviously better than the movie like any other book. It has precise details and a great choice of words. It really made me visualize the book. I would rate this book 8/8.

This is my favorite book out of the entire Harry Potter series! Two of my favorite characters are introduced in this book (Sirius Black and Remus Lupin) which, I think, is why I like it so much.

It's very well written and gets even more intense than the two books prior to it, of course since Harry is getting older the increase in intensity makes sense. Very detailed, great plot that contributes to the series beautifully. One thing I've noticed is that people with a personality similar to mine love this book the most. So, if your slightly more introverted I think you will really enjoy the Prisoner of Azkaban!

If you haven't read the Harry Potter series yet or started but didn't finish it, I highly encourage you to read (or re-read) it! I just read the entire series this year. I had never watched the movies, I had heard so much about it though and decided to read it. I have fallen in love with this series. It has such a great underlying message about love and light. The series is more than skin deep and brings up great questions to ask about life in general. I highly recommend the series to anyone!

this was one of my favourite Harry Potter books. I loved the part when Harry frees his godfather and watches him escape with Buckbeak.

I thought that this book was much more detailed than in the movie. My favourite part in this book was when it was the finals, and grifindor was playing for the cup. I liked this part because made me want to read. I do not have any feedback about this book.

"Right, Neville," said Professor Lupin. "First things first: what would you say is the thing that frightens you most in the world?"

Neville looked around rather wildly, as though begging someone to help him, then said, in barely more than a whisper, "Professor Snape."

The Knight Bus drops Harry off at Diagon Alley, where he is greeted by Cornelius Fudge, the Minister of Magic. He rents a room and awaits the start of school. In Diagon Alley, Harry finishes his schoolwork, admires a Firebolt broomstick in the window of a shop, and after some time, finds his friends Ron and Hermione. At a pet shop, Hermione buys a cat named Crookshanks, who chases Scabbers, Ron's aging pet rat. Ron is most displeased. The night before they all head off to Hogwarts, Harry overhears Ron's parents discussing the fact that Sirius Black is after Harry.
