[Harry Potter Book Challenge] Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban – Thoughts and Links

harry potter and the prisoner of azkaban book covers
Month three of the Harry Potter Book Challenge has ended and it’s time once again to share your thoughts/links for Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

Since this is coming in a bit late (sorry about that) I will keep things short this time. My question for the month is:

“What is your favorite part of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban?”

I’ll share mine:

I love the whole use of the Time-Turner to go back in time. I feel it’s always delicate to use time travel as a plot device because you open yourself up to a lot of plot holes, but J. K. Rowling was able to make everything work together perfectly. Plus it’s always fun when you finally find out how Hermione has been getting to all her classes.

So for those of you who has signed up to participate through the comment section, please answer this question in the comments: “What is your favorite part of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban?”

For those of you who have written either a review or opinion piece on your blogs, Goodreads, Shelfari, LibraryThing, Amazon, or YouTube, you can leave a link in the comment section. (Please note: Your comment might be held for moderation because it includes a link, but we will approve all the relevant links. If your comment hasn’t been approved within 1-2 days, please resubmit it so that we count your participation into the challenge).

And feel free to also share what your favorite part of the book was.

Remember, your comment and/or link will count as one proof of participation, which will give you one entry into our final giveaway. Also you can add your January links/comments here and February links/comments here if you haven’t done so yet.

    My favorite part is the moment when Harry realizes that he created the patronus that saves Sirius and him. Instead of waiting for his father to save him, he realizes he can do it. It’s a great moment for gaining self-confidence.

    Here’s my review…

      This post was for Avidreader25 by the way. I just looked back on my first two link post for Jan and Feb and realized I didn’t have my name (Melissa) in those posts. I wanted to make sure you guys knew it was me all 3 times. Thanks!

    Probably my favorite of the books. But I’ve always had a problem with one thing: I highly doubt a student (Hermione) would be entrusted with a device capable of altering the fabric of time – solely for the purpose of getting ahead in her studies…

      You make a good point Jesse, I always wondered about that, but then again it is Hermione, if anyone would be responsible enough to use it, it would be her.

    Definitely the time turner sequence. Harry and Hermione saving Buckbeak and Sirius.

    In this book it finally shows a bit about Harry’s parents and friends. It also gives you a better understanding of what Harry is about. I have 2 favorite parts, the first part is where Harry finds out he has a God father that is not a killer and that he has family err a real family the second is where he get the Marauders map finds out he is more like his father then he thought and his father and friends had created the map.

    I absolutely adored the short span of time between the big reveal in the Shrieking Shack and Lupin’s transformation on the grounds, when they’re traveling as a group underground. Harry is glorying over the fact that he has new family to appreciate who likewise is fond of him. There is also the happy prospect of being able to move in with Sirius and leave the horrid Dursleys behind. There is a taste of vindication in the air with Pettigrew captured, plus a lot of closure and clarity after Harry figures out a bit of truth about his parents’ murder. I always sincerely feel happy and excited along with Harry as he’s overwhelmed by all these things.

    I love the whole ending, from the plot twists of Sirius and Wormtail, to the shocking discovery of the time turner, and the exciting rescue of Buckbeak and Sirius. On further rereads, I especially love the elements when Harry learns more about his father. It’s such a heartbreaking thought when he was hoping for his dad to leap out and produce a Patronus, but very touching for him to realize that he had it in himself to do it. This is definitely one of my favorite books of the series.

    My first 2 reviews were signed in as Seawitch51/BJ,but I can’t remember how I signed that in, since then I have started signing in with Google Acct.  Hope this is okay.  I honestly thought I had written in for this book, but obviously not.  I read HP/Azkaban a couple of months ago.  Review is posted on GoodReads at:  http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/155089667.  My favorite part of this book is saving Buckbeak and Sirius.
