I loved this book I could read it over and over it so exciting and suspenseful at the same time! I would recommend it.

Gripping from start to finish, this book does a great job at bringing the reader deep inside it's fantasy world. Perfect balance between character building and plot building. A very satisfying read.

Remarkable. This book feels like the beginning of the turning point in the series because Rowling's writing has become confident and polished, her characters are well-rounded, flawed and human, and the end will have you scrambling to read the fourth novel.

Great third entry in a wonderful series. Prison of Azkaban is my favorite from the film series and also one of the better books I have read in the series so far.

I am a HUGE HARRY POTTER FAN, since childhood till now. There are 7 titles in total, where the last book is split into 2 parts. All of these series have already been made into movies, which in my opinion, is better to read all of the books FIRST before you delve into the films. Books generally have more details and sometimes certain parts of the movies are different than the novels - surprise, surprise!

This 3rd book is 1 of my favourites, especially the middle and ending became quite shocking for me! All of Harry's adventures were never dull and always filled with great surprises with his 2 best friends, Ron and Hermione. If you particularly love adventures, fantasy, magic, wizards/witches, and surprises, Harry Potter is the one recommended for you!

This series gets better with each book. I definitely recommend it.

This has been my favorite so far. The main thing I didn't like about this one was how much they focused on Ron's rat and on Hermione having an impossible schedule. I thought the movie was alright but I liked the audiobook more. I am excited to see what happens next with Sirius Black.

"Mooney presents his compliments to Professor Snape, and begs him to keep his abnormally large nose out of other people's business."

"Mr. Prongs agrees with Mr. Mooney and would like to add that Professor Snape is an ugly git."

"Mr. Padfoot would like to register his astonishment that an idiot like that ever became a professor."

"Mr. Wormtail bids Professor Snape good day, and advises him to wash his hair, the slimeball."

"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."
