Harry Potter is a wizard. He is in his third year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

There's an escaped mass murderer on the loose, even the Muggles have been warned. The sinister prison guards of Azkaban have been called in to guard the school and Harry, Ron and Hermione rapidly discover why all witches and wizards live in fear of being sent to Azkaban, Lessons, however, must go on and there are lots of new subjects in the third year - Care of Magical Creatures and Divination among others. Plus the delights of Hogsmeade, the only village in the UK entirely populated by the magical community.

Reviews

'I can honestly say I can't remember the last time I encountered an author who has had this effect on me. For the first time in years the book lives up to the hype ... perfection' Daily Express 'Extraordinarily vivid and exceptionally well-imagined' Independent on Sunday 'Rowling deserves all the plaudits that are being heaped upon her. For once, the word phenomenon is an understatement' Scotland on Sunday 'The most remarkable publishing sensation for a generation ... the story is told with such momentum, imagination and irrepressible humour that it can captivate both adults and children' Sunday Express

harry's back for his third year at Hogwarts, casting spells, facing fears, meeting magical creatures, and, of course, facing the fearsome you-know-who, and his many allies. This book contains many mysteries, and loads of magic, and is a great third book in this startling series.
Sirius Black is back, and he's out to kill the potter whose parents death was all his fault...
mwahaha...

Harry Potter books are an awsome series and are filled with excitment and mysteries from begining to end. all worth the read and so hard to put down. The price is nothing compared to the enjoyment that you will get from reading this book. You definately want to purchase this book as you will be missing out if you dont! i must read for all. my fave book from the series so far!

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was an excellent read. It had a mesmerising storyline that fascianted and amazed me. The writing was excellent and easy to read. I really enjoyed the book. The book left me feeling great intrigued and satisfied. Only flaw was at one point it seemed all a bit ordinary but only for a second. I would recommend this product for all.

another awesome book in the series, probably the best out of the first three, as it is when the series starts to get a bit more dark, and therefore exciting. it is the catalyst for lord voldemorts return, and contains many an exciting moment, largely towards the end. great stuff, JK knows how to make a real page turner!!

The most important thing about this document of Harry Potter's third year at Hogwarts school of witch craft and wizardry is the introduction of the magical criminal, Sirius Black. As the story progresses it is discovered that, despite previous beliefs, he has not escaped from Azkaban to kill Harry, but rather someone else..who?

Harry Pooter and the prisoner of Azkaban is one of the most engaging books to come out of the series. This book is much better then the first two and has a much better and complex concept.Easily my favourite from them all. Five from Five

Whilst the first book was very mediocre, by the third book the Harry Potter series has dramatically improved. The characters are less stereotyped and Harry is actually showing some character development and complexity! I enjoyed this book a lot, although some irrational things still annoy me [why, if Potter's relatives hate him, didn't they put him up for adoption, why is he allowed to the wizard school, why doesn't he stay in the wizard world or alone with his sizeable fortune, instead of returning to the broom cupboard each holiday etc.]. Overall this book is fun andd an improvement on the poor first book.

An adult cover is a good idea, although the children's cover for this volume was passable for adults too.

A brilliant book. The third novel in JK Rowlings exceptional Potter series and a real blockbuster. You won't be able to put the book down.

Don't be dissuaded by the movie- unfortunately, this was a rather poor display of the magical world in which Harry lives- and that's the best I could say about it.

Harry Potter and Prisoner of Azkaban is my personal favourite in the series.
