Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J. K. Rowling

Before I get on with my review, I would like to mention that I read this books years ago but am writing the review only now.

Harry has spent two years at Hogwarts and is now in his third year. Once again, the story opens with the Dursleys. This time, Uncle Veron's sister, Aunt Marge was coming and she simply hated the sight of Harry. To Harry's misfortune, the third years were allowed to go to Hogsmeade and had to get permission from their guardians if they wanted to go. Harry has to behave himself and feign his education in front of his aunt if he has to get Uncle Veron's permission. Unfortunately, he messed it up by blowing up his aunt and running away from the house.

Meanwhile, a murderous maniac named Sirius Black has escaped Azkaban, the wizard prison, and according to others, is out to kill Harry. He has been warned and is given high protection but everything goes chaotic. According to Professor Trelawney, his Divination teacher, he will die since he had seen a Grim. (In my opinion, very stupid.)

I don't know where to start. This book is spectacular! It is one out of the three best books in this series. The previous book, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, was a little boring but this is simply marvelous. The plot is really good, the ending is amazing. Every bit of this book is intriguing and deserves to be rated 5 stars. Thus, I conclude by praising the author:
Hats off to J.K.Rowling.
