This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
Harry Potter’s third year at Hogwarts is full of new dangers. A convicted murderer, Sirius Black, has broken out of Azkaban prison, and it seems he’s after Harry. Now Hogwarts is being patrolled by the dementors, the Azkaban guards who are hunting Sirius. But Harry can’t imagine that Sirius or, for that matter, the evil Lord Voldemort could be more frightening than the dementors themselves, who have the terrible power to fill anyone they come across with aching loneliness and despair. Meanwhile, life continues as usual at Hogwarts. A top-of-the-line broom takes Harry’s success at Quidditch, the sport of the Wizarding world, to new heights. A cute fourth-year student catches his eye. And he becomes close with the new Defense of the Dark Arts teacher, who was a childhood friend of his father. Yet despite the relative safety of life at Hogwarts and the best efforts of the dementors, the threat of Sirius Black grows ever closer. But if Harry has learned anything from his education in wizardry, it is that things are often not what they seem. Tragic revelations, heartwarming surprises, and high-stakes magical adventures await the boy wizard in this funny and poignant third installment of the beloved series.
Oh my god, oh my god!
This is my least favorite in the movie department but one of the best on book. The phone conversation at the beginning between Ron and Uncle Vernon was priceless. I wish so much that that scene had been in the movie. It would have had a strong impact.
We finally get to see some real aspect of the school. Hermione is way over her head with all her schoolwork, she’s gradually starting to go crazy. My favorite character is Sirius and Cedric though. They make the book more interesting.
Great book, great characters, awesome development, the story line is great. Everything about these damn books are just magical okay, you can’t review Harry Potter because it’s just a pile of pages filled with legendary words that creates such a magical world. I wish I’d gotten a letter okay, I was cheated. Clearly. Excuse my rambling, I know the story is fictional a fairytale even, but can you judge a girl for wanting a letter of her own?
