One of the greatest things about Harry Potter, is that they improve with each book, and you can clearly glimpse the clever, intricate plot Rowling has wove, with cleverly placed foreshadowing and seemingly innocent hints. This book is undoubtedly darker than the previous ones, as Harry learns more and more about the sinister forces that threaten the wizarding world.
The characters begin to get more developed and more complex, and an awful lot more interesting. I must warn you though, that once you begin, you'll find it almost impossible to stop!

Once you finish, you'll be skimming through it again, finding seemingly obvious clues, thinking 'How did I miss that?! Over the summer, the Dursleys have forbidden him to talk to any of the neighbours out of fear of him exposing his magical abilities.
The separation from his magical supplies e.
He has seized the opportunity to start it a week after his arrival home by sneaking some of his books upstairs and hiding them in his room while Aunt Petunia and Dudley go out to admire Uncle Vernon 's new company car. None of the Dursleys have noticed him studying magic every night since then, and Harry has been very careful to avoid trouble with them, for his aunt and uncle have already been in a bad mood with him due to a telephone call they got from their nephew's best friend at Hogwarts, Ron Weasley , about which Vernon has furiously confronted him, even though Harry doesn't know how Ron got their home number.
The incident must have simply made Ron warn their other friend Hermione Granger not to call, as Harry received no word from them afterwards.
The only improvement in his relationship to the Dursleys that gets changed is that they have given him permission to let his pet snowy owl Hedwig out at night with a promise not to use her to send letter to Ron or Hermione, since Uncle Vernon couldn't take the screeching racket she makes while bored if she gets locked in her cage all the time. On 31 July Harry's thirteenth birthday , after midnight, Harry receives gifts and letters from Ron, Hermione, and Rubeus Hagrid , each wishing him a happy birthday and sending him a gift.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling - review
According to Ron, his dad, Arthur Weasley , won a Daily Prophet Prize Draw for seven hundred galleons and has used it to take the family to Egypt to visit his eldest son, Bill , with the remainder being used to provide Ron with a new wand to replace the one that was broken last year. Harry also learns that Percy Weasley is entering his seventh year at Hogwarts and has been named Head Boy.
According to Hermione, she and her parents are currently spending the holiday in France. Also, both Ron and Hermione mention in their letters they will be in London on the last week before term to pick up their school supplies and want Harry to join them. Hagrid hints in his letter the book he sent Harry will come in handy next term but he wants the reason for it to be a surprise until the term starts.
Now, I'm saying nothing against your family, Petunia, but your sister was a bad egg. They turn up in the best families. Then she ran off with a wastrel and here's the result right in front of us. Unfortunately for him, he finds his Uncle Vernon and Dudley already watching the news and sits down with them unnoticed as the channel's anchorman is halfway through the report on word from the Muggle Prime Minister out on the London streets of an escaped convict, Sirius Black , who Uncle Vernon comments looks like he came from an asylum rather than a prison.
This is obviously because the mental state of Black's gaunt face and elbow-length hair is almost like comparing him to Harry, who luckily feels well groomed.
The reporter then transitions to his report on the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries' announcement without implying beforehand which prison or asylum Black has escaped from, much to Uncle Vernon's confusion.
Nonetheless, Vernon announces to the family that his sister, Marjorie "Marge" Dursley , is coming to visit for a week. Harry agrees to behave normally during her visit, if his uncle will sign his permission form and has to send Hedwig to the Weasleys for the week due to Marge not knowing that Harry is a wizard. On the final night, when she calls his father, James Potter , a lazy good for nothing drunk, Harry loses his temper and accidentally inflates her.
She explodes and Harry decides to take his school things and run away, fearing he will almost certainly be expelled from Hogwarts, after using magic outside school.
Chapter 3: The Knight Bus "Anyway, they cornered Black in the middle of a street full of Muggles an' Black took out 'is wand and 'e blasted 'alf the street apart, an' a wizard got it, an' so did a dozen Muggles what got in the way" — Stan Shunpike telling Harry about Sirius Black Harry inside the Knight Bus He reaches Magnolia Crescent and sees a black dog staring at him.
Big, purple and triple-decker, the bus pretty much had everything, including eccentric bus conductor Stan Shunpike, hot chocolate, and most importantly, beds. Also, who cares about the werewolf thing?
Lupin always had chocolate. Dementors Despite having faced Lord Voldemort himself, Harry was really spooked when he encountered the Dementors; the soulless, floating terrors that guarded Azkaban. Crookshanks With Harry having Hedwig and Ron having Scabbers although not for long… Hermione thought it was time to get a pet too.
And by Jove, did she get the best one.Product details Reading level: Other editions. We wish 1 he was real and 2 he was our godfather too.
Trust Hermione to have a cat as smart as her. Crookshanks shook his head.
But Harry can't imagine that Sirius or, for that matter, the evil Lord Voldemort could be more frightening than the dementors themselves, who have the terrible power to fill anyone they come across with aching loneliness and despair. I understand her. Unfortunately for him, he finds his Uncle Vernon and Dudley already watching the news and sits down with them unnoticed as the channel's anchorman is halfway through the report on word from the Muggle Prime Minister out on the London streets of an escaped convict, Sirius Black , who Uncle Vernon comments looks like he came from an asylum rather than a prison.
I especially loved the fact that we actually got to learn about Remus Lupin and his backstory as a werewolf.
