“Darker and better”

published 11/02/2002

very strong plot

might be hard for some younger readers to follow.

The thing that impresses me most about the Harry Potter books is the incredible skill with which the plots, and their solutions, are woven. There's many a thriller writer who could learn a trick or two from J. K Rowling. She presents almost everything you need to know to make sense of what is...

“captivating”

published 02/08/2000

it is so good that you wont want to put it down

it moves a bit slowly at the beggining

the book was bought by my mother, who is a teacher and generally likes those types of books, when i first piked it up it was more out of curiosity than anything else. i thought, when the books first came out they were for young children and not for me, being sooooooo old at 14, but after a while...

The Harry Potter series is quickly becoming a modern day classic as children all around the world enjoy the wonders of the world of Hogwarts. As I write this opinion, a movie is being filmed by Time Warner telling the tale of the sorcerer’s (or philosopher’s) stone. J K...

more Potter magic

none

So, another year has passed in the life of Harry Potter. Can the third year of his schooling at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry be as exciting and captivating as the first two? So often before, I have read a series of books and whilst some just keep getting better, others distinctly...

Could this book possibly be as good as the first two? The answer is yes! This book boasts what is probably the most complex plots of the first three books. There are so many twists to the tale that you won’t be able to put down this book if you wanted to. Harry Potter is no ordinary boy. He...

“The Cult Book - Volume III”

published 02/12/2001

excellent read, thrilling, enchanting

none that I can think of

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is the book about Harry Potter's third year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardy. There are four books in total so far (and three more to come) - one per school year. You should always read the Harry Potter books in the correct sequence, which is:...

A bit childish at times for older readers.

Well, at 6pm last night, I finished the third book in the Harry Potter series. Some people could’ve finished it in under a day, but I like to take in what I read and do it over a length of time. I began to read it exactly a week before, and that was only for one reason. I’d read so...

Not as good as the second book

Well, this is my third foray into the world of J. K. Rowling, as I have just finished reading Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. This follows the third year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for our friend, Harry Potter – not forgetting the wonderful Ron Weasley and the...

None

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is the third book in the Harry Potter series by the prizewinning writer J. K. Rowling. Having read and re-read all four of the books in the series so far, I would say that this is without a doubt the best one by far. The problem is this is not reflected in...

“IT'S A KIND OF MAGIC”

published 11/12/2001

Fantastic read from all aspects, for all ages

Not enough pages

First of all; I claim no credit for the blatant rip off of the Queen song title, I couldn't think of something more appropriate to the subject matter. Any lawyers out there can welcomly (is that a word?) sue my a*** off, it'll be like getting blood out of a stone, even if I'm willing to oblige...

“The best so far”

published 11/03/2002

Unputdownable especially at the end

None although I did nearly miss my bus

I have just finished reading the third in the series of Harry Potter books by J K Rowling and what a page-turner it was! In my opinion it is the most exciting of the three that I have read so far. To start at the beginning my mother, sister and aunt had all been reading the Harry Potter books and...

“What can I say ... Fantastic”

published 19/08/2001

Truly magical, amazing and unput downable!

None at all.

This is the continuing story of the young wizard Harry Potter, and his increasing ability to cheat death. The first two books saw Harry in his first and second years at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and the this third book takes him through the third year. The story seems to run...
