Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
The third book in the series and possibly potterheads' most preferred part (excuse the alliteration), the Prisoner of Azkaban starts with Harry, as usual back with the Dursleys for the summer holidays, waiting for it to be over, where he sees on the news that a convict named Sirius Black has escaped from prison.
Later, Harry learns from Mr. Weasley that Black escaped from the wizard prison, Azkaban.... to kill HIM.
That's how the suspense begins.
What could have Black possibly done to be locked up in Azkaban, possibly the worst place in the wizarding world, where most prisoners eventually go insane and slowly die, having lost their will to live and why is he after Harry, who has never even met him. (Or has he?)
This book introduces to us, Dementors.
They suck. Literally.
Dementors are creatures that suck happiness out of humans and thus cause depression.
They have been set the duty of being guards at Azkaban, which explains the prisoners' depression.
We are also introduced to a new professor who is everyone's favorite except Snape's.
Then we also get to meet a new magical creature, hippogriff.
They are giant and have the front half of an eagle and the hind half of a horse.
Don't worry Hagrid will explain it better.
The list of new items that this book offers to us can go on forever.
So now I leave it to you readers, to explore the rest for yourselves because trust me, you will have an amazing time.
By end of this book, so many shocking secrets will be revealed, so many heartwarming bonds will be formed and you will be left with a very powerful experience.
Planning on buying the book?
