"At the time of writing this, Harry Potter And The Prison Of Azkaban (along with the 5th Harry Potter book ) are my personal favourites of the series. J K Rowling is such a good storyteller that I felt I couldn’t turn the pages quick enough towards the end of this book.
As always, Stephen Fry (UK version) does a fine job of bringing J K Rowling's characters to life. In addition to the fantastic purple whirlwind otherwise known as the Knight Bus, my favourite part of Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban has to be the end. I don't think anyone could guess how the adventure finally unfurls even if they tried! I wish I could go into more detail, but I'd be spoiling the plot for you so my lips are sealed...
If you haven’t read the first and second book in the Harry Potter series, read those first. Although the books are written so you can understand them even if you haven’t read the others, I think the storyline is much more gripping when you read the books in order.
At any rate, book Harry Potter in for a read! I can't recommend the series enough - they are truly... magical!

"Most enjoyable books I've read in ages!
It took me a while to succumb to Harry Potter fever, but now infected, I never want to be cured! I've seen both the films and enjoyed them so much, I was inspired to start reading the books.
Harry Potter And The Prisoner of Azkaban in particular I literally couldn't put down and there is as much, if not more in there to appeal to adults as well as to children.
Although slightly darker in tone than the others in the series, it none the less remains wonderful escapism for all ages.
A large plus point is that J.K. Rowling doesn't assume prior knowledge of the other preceeding books, and Harry Potter And The Prisoner of Azkaban is perfectly capable of standing alone - characters, situations and locations are re-introduced and 'what's happened so far' summaries are comprehensive while remaining brief for those who have read the other books - although I feel that anyone who just reads the one is missing out on a treat!
I haven't enjoyed a book so much in ages, and I sincerely hope J.K Rowling never tires of Harry and his friends at Hogwarts!! I certainly shall never tire of reading about them."

"Easily the best book I've ever read.
I used to mock the whole Harry Potter craze something rotten, but after telling my girlfriend I'd give the books a chance, I was hooked a chapter into Harry Potter And The Philospher's Stone.
I haven't as yet, read Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix but I've read the first 4 Harry Potter books and this is not only my favourite Harry Potter book but my favourite book in general!
I've never known characters, places and scenarios described so well without drawling on and on. You really care about the characters and the plot. It certainly isn't just for children.
The twists and turns are unexpected yet entirely plausable. Time after time you'll say "why didnt i think it was that, its so obvious now", but J. K. Rowling's knack for diversionary tactics within her writing is the best I've known. It's probably best to read the first 2 Harry Potter books before this to set the scene, but if you only read one of the series I'd highly recommend this one."
