Light and Dark

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

by J.K. Rowling 


Hello everyone, it is time for another book review. This time the book is Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling.  The book is 313  pages long. I really enjoy this book because I feel like it is when the events in the series start to snowball together and the main conflict between Harry and Voldemort (yeah,I said it) becomes more tangible.I also felt like this book was a good balance between happy moments and feel good moments and serious parts. Harry is Finally able to meet someone that is technically family that is not the his sorry excuse for a family the Dursleys which makes Harry extremely happy, but on the other hand he also meets the Dementors. Dementors are magical creatures that sick the happiness and eventually the soul from a persons body.

Like the other books The Prisoner of  Azkaban is filled with all sorts of wonders of the magical world from moving staircases ( No, not an escalator. Silly muggle) moving pictures, talking paintings, werewolves, shape shifters and many more amazing things that live only in the world of Harry Potter. Anyone looking for a riveting story filled with mystery, surprise twists, and great conflict both physical and narrative  should give this book a try. I do recommend reading the other books first though.

“The consequences of our actions are always so complicated, so diverse, that predicting the future is a very difficult business indeed.”-Albus Dumbledore

J.K. Rowling really makes Dumbledore a very inspiring character who always has something interesting to say. I really like this quote because Dumbledore is trying to explain how life will do whatever it wants and the things we do or don’t do will always affect something and that trying to plan and predict what you are gonna do or where you are gonna be is pretty much impossible. So, let’s take a step back and not try to control or plan everything and just try take the week step by step. Thank you guys for reading.

  1. I think this book was my favorite, but I can’t remember all the more intricate details very well. Reading your review makes me want to read the book! T^T Ah, if I could only be a witch and not a “silly muggle.” The Harry Potterverse is really tooooooo cool. God, why can’t I be a witch! Especially with the way muggle-borns/muggle-raised are introduced into the magical world. It makes them more appreciative of the world they live in. They’re like me! And you! Magic is an extremely pleasant surprise to them. Anyway, tangent. Something I really wanted to say about your review was that your entire second paragraph was highly amusing XD. It sounded like one of those (cheesy *cough sorry?) book promotions. The ending of that paragraph, however, was what really got to me. You recommended reading the other books first so lightly and easily. Like, “Meeh, you should probably read the first books first.” 😂 Sorry, I guess it seems so obvious to me, but I know some people skip books… *Cringe. It was just such a blasé was of saying it, that’s all. Thank you for an honestly enjoyable review. ^-^
