Publisher's Summary

"'Welcome to the Knight Bus, emergency transport for the stranded witch or wizard. Just stick out your wand hand, step on board and we can take you anywhere you want to go.'" 
When the Knight Bus crashes through the darkness and screeches to a halt in front of him, it's the start of another far from ordinary year at Hogwarts for Harry Potter. Sirius Black, escaped mass-murderer and follower of Lord Voldemort, is on the run - and they say he is coming after Harry. In his first ever Divination class, Professor Trelawney sees an omen of death in Harry's tea leaves.... But perhaps most terrifying of all are the Dementors patrolling the school grounds, with their soul-sucking kiss....

This series has become an addiction.

I never thought I would be so taken by a series aimed at teenagers. Really enjoying this, will now download the next book.

Fantastic

This was my third harry potter book in less than 7 days. On day 7 I finished my third harry potter book. Totally addicted. The narrator makes a big difference. Never fire him.

The Series Matures

The Prisoner of Azkaban is a little bit longer and has a slightly harder edge than the previous two books. I believe this reflects the natural progression of the the time that the books were written and the fact that much of its intended audience were now that little bit older. That's not to say that all the hallmarks of the previous books aren't there: the great characters; the inventive interpretations of modern life in a world of wizards and the warm humour that infused the previous books.

Fry once again meets the challenge of being an excellent narrator and you feel that by this stage he has a genuine empathy for the stories. I would also add that the books this far explain the Professor Snape character far better than the films which in this case miss his rant about Harry's father. It's true that even Fry can't match Rickman's wonderful portrayal of Snape but the insight we gain into him and his motivations in particular is markedly improved in the books.

This remains a series that has massively broad appeal and there are fewer better ways to spend a credit across Audible.

A must have!

What did you like most about Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Book 3?

The one reason I joined Audible was to listen to the Harry Potter series and I couldn't recommend it more. Having never listened to audio books before I didn't know what to expect, particularly as I'm a big fan of the books and films but this is equally as amazing.

Stephen Fry reads this book perfectly and his soothing voice and use of different voices for characters really makes this book. The story is perfect for all the family, you fall in love with the characters and can easily imagine this magical world.

This is a book I could easily listen to over and over again.

What about Stephen Fry’s performance did you like?

Brilliant

Any additional comments?

A must read
