Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

by J. K. Rowling

This third volume of the Harry Potter series isn't bad. In his third year at Hogwarts, Harry has to contend with the escaped prisoner, Sirius Black. Well, that's stretching the truth a bit. Sirius Black is an escaped prisoner, but he isn't troubling Harry directly throughout the book. Since Black was convicted as an accessory to the murder of Harry's parents, the powers that be assume that he'll be looking to harm Harry as some sort of revenge. So Harry finds himself a bit of a prisoner on the Hogwarts campus, confined by rules and guardians who are all intended to protect him from Sirius Black. Of course, those plans don't quite work out as intended. Good thing, too, since it makes for a more interesting tale.

I'm glad I checked it out.
