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

Nearly as soon as I finished the second book in the Harry Potter series, I picked up and scurried my way through the third installment, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling.

This third book in the series takes place over the course of Potter’s third year at Hogwarts. I am starting to wonder if every single book in the series will start in the summer the last one closed at. I hope the entire series isn’t quite that predictable in this way. Still, that’s a (mostly) small thing.

I thought I had previously seen the films of most of the early books, but I certainly didn’t recall the ending of this one; that was nice.

I’m really enjoying this series. I’m sad I haven’t picked them up before, but that of course allows me to read them now for the first time.

Here’s the official Rowling site.

  1. Just imagine how sad you’ll be when you’ve finished all seven. 🙂

    Enjoy them while they’re new (to you)!!!

  2. Yeah, seven books is kind of a short series in my mind. Right now I’m trying to start another new-to-me series, but just a few pages in, and I’m not hooked yet.

  3. All the Potter books cover one year of Harry’s education at Hogwarts, so they all start during the summer, where the previous one left off. Does that really make the series predictable? Even though it follows that pattern, the story was quite unpredictable throughout the series.

    Hope you enjoy the series. 🙂

  4. No, that doesn’t make the entire series predictable; as I said above, it makes the series predictable in that one point. I can see the hows and the whys of that, but I think I’d prefer even that to be less scripted. Regardless, I am certainly enjoying the books, yes.
