As it turns out, Harry isn't punished at all for his errant wizardry. Instead he is mysteriously rescued from his Muggle neighborhood and whisked off in a triple-decker, violently purple bus to spend the remaining weeks of summer in a friendly inn called the Leaky Cauldron. What Harry has to face as he begins his third year at Hogwarts explains why the officials let him off easily. It seems that Sirius Black--an escaped convict from the prison of Azkaban--is on the loose. Not only that, but he's after Harry Potter. But why? And why do the Dementors, the guards hired to protect him, chill Harry's very heart when others are unaffected? Once again, Rowling has created a mystery that will have children and adults cheering, not to mention standing in line for her next book. Fortunately, there are four more in the works.

I was sad to read the last book in the series - because it was over, but it was a great ending.
Out of the series of the seven books, this one ended everything very nicely because it tied up many of the loose ends.
Not only does J.K. Rowling invent wonderful characters and stories, but she writes extremely well.
Ties up plenty of loose ends and open issues... including a lot of helpful clarification. She get does tend to be wordy in some instances, and long winded in others but is well... Read morePublished 1 day ago by Sam R
