Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban: Countdown Post #3
The third countdown post. Five days until the movie! In this book,Harry accidentally blows up his uncle's sister and makes a run for it, thinking that he has been expelled from school. When he reaches the Leaky Cauldron he walks straight into the Minister of Magic himself- who seems strangely relieved to find Harry safe and sound. And everyone is talking about an escaped convict, Sirius Black, who is so dangerous that even the Muggles have been warned. Is Harry somehow connected to Black? Why is Ron's rat acting so weird? And why do the Dementors, the guards of Azkaban, cause Harry to pass out every time they come near him? As Harry grows older in the books, J. K. Rowling's writing becomes better. This book was harder for me to get through the first time I read it. Unfortunately, the book does lose speed about half-way through. Please, stick with it. It gets better.I recommend this book for ages 10 and up. Author: J. K. Rowling. Release date: 1999 On a scale of 1 being not so good, and 10 being the very best book I've ever read, I rate this book a 10.
