Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For twelve years, the dread fortress of Azkaban held an infamous prisoner named Sirius Black. Convicted of killing thirteen people with a single curse, he was said to be the heir apparent to the Dark Lord, Voldemort.

Now he has escaped, leaving only two clues as to where he might be headed: Harry Potter's defeat of You-Know-Who was Black's downfall as well. And the Azkaban guards heard Black muttering in his sleep, "He's at Hogwarts...he's at Hogwarts."

Harry Potter isn't safe, not even within the walls of his magical school, surrounded by his friends. Because on top of it all, there may well be a traitor in their midst.

Review:

"The main characters and the continuing story both come along so smartly...that the book seems shorter than its page count: have readers clear their calendars if they are fans, or get out of the way if they are not." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"J. K. Rowling's third masterpiece, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, is just as exciting and action-packed as the first two." Elizabeth Weintz, BookPage

Review:

"[T]he heartiest and best of children's literature." Gregory Maguire, The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Rowling proves that she has plenty of tricks left up her sleeve....Rowling's wit never flags....The Potter spell is holding strong." Publishers Weekly

"Isn't it reassuring that some things just get better and better? Harry is back and in fine form....The pace is nonstop....This is a fabulously entertaining read that will have Harry Potter fans cheering for more." School Library Journal

Review:

"[The] most interesting Harry Potter adventure yet....This book keeps readers on the edge of their seats and makes them yearn for the next installment in the Harry Potter saga." Rebecca Joseph, Children's Literature

Review:

"A fast-paced delight for young and old alike." Carolyn Cushman, Locus

Review:

"Rowling's characterizations are succinctly evocative and often slyly funny, ensuring that readers develop a fondness for her players, care what happens to them, and come back for more." Janice M. Del Negro, Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

About the Author

J.K. Rowling was a struggling single mother when she wrote the beginning of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, on scraps of paper at a local cafe. But her efforts soon paid off, as she received an unprecedented award from the Scottish Arts Council enabling her to finish the book. Since then, the debut novel has become an international phenomenon, garnering rave reviews and major awards, including the British Book Awards Chidren's Book of the Year and the Smarties Prize. Ms. Rowling lives in Edinburgh with her daughter.

Erica Horne, September 24, 2009 (view all comments by Erica Horne)
Best of the seven book series by far. This book has more action more plot twist and just plain in your face action. I LOVED THIS BOOK and hated the movie. You cannot just see this movie you have to read the book. With all the books being out and the movies running out this series might begin to fade but this is a must read for now and all times.
