Book Review: Harry Potter #3 – Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

There are two type of people in this world – those who love Harry Potter and others who don’t.

As I noted in my first post, I was blackmailed into reading this series.


Book 3: Harry Potter Aur Paras Pathhar Ka Raaz (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban)

After reading the first book in Urdu, I knew that I should read it in english. Her own words would add more to the impact it had on me. But I wanted to rush through the series and reading Urdu (or your mother tongue) is much faster, if you know what I mean.

Orginally posted on GoodReads:

This is the third installment and the best so far. It has so many revelations, specially about Hogwart and Harry’s parents.

Also, all adventures aside, Harry is growing as a person, learning a thing or two about philosophy of life.

And Harry finally will have a place to live where he can enjoy his freedom.

The trio of Harry, Ron, and Hermione also go through a rough patch in their friendship. Just to re-iterate, I don’t much care about the wizardly stuff. The characters are written beautifully.


And with that, I joined millions of others.
