Description

"'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....

Best book in the series

Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban is amazing in and all by itself. The narrator just takes it to another level. #Audible1

Perfect

This is one of my favourites from the series and I was not disappointed at all! Jim Dale's narrative is addictive.

That narrator, though!

I've read the Harry Potter series more often than I should admit, however, the narrator on these books just makes it all so much more real.

Enjoyed his reading even more than the movies!

Probably the Weakest in the Series

Don't get me wrong. This is an excellent book, very necessary as you go on in Harry Potter's world, setting up lots that happens. It's just a little weak on plot, starts to introduce much of the stuff I hate about YA (Harry becomes more and more surly, the misunderstood loner kid with a heart of gold), and doesn't flow as well as Rowling's other books.
But I still give it a solid 4 stars.

Whiny narrator

The narrator reads many of the characters whiny, especially Hermione. I would think this would improve over the first three books, but it hasn’t.

Other than that, these books are amazing and timeless. They will be people’s, not just children’s, favourites forever. The characters, the storyline, everything is amazing and well written.

Loved it.

Jim was great at bringing the characters to life and I've loved these books since I was a teen so adding the audible to my collection is worth it.

Jim Dale at his best

I was so excited to hear that Audible got the rights to Harry Potter. My introduction to audio books began with Harry Potter. Jim Dale's voice and delivery brought to life characters that J. K. Rowling created on paper. Very few books have given me driveway moments, minutes spent listening to the end of a chapter, long after arriving home.
Thank you again to all for providing me an escape from the real world of muggles.

The Threat From Within

What did you love best about Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Book 3?

The increasing suspense as it becomes clear that there is an intruder in the castle who will stop at nothing in their quest to murder Harry....as his parents before him were brutally murdered.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Book 3?

The discovery of the true identity of the traitor, and the way in which he was able to infiltrate the castle. I also roared with laughter at Lee Jordan's commentary during the Quidditch Final match, loved the revelation of the way in which Hermione was able to complete the heaviest courseload in Third Year history, and was chilled by Professor Trelawney's eerie trance-state prediction regarding Harry's ultimate fate.

What does Jim Dale bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Jim Dale BECOMES these characters; they come to life thanks to his expert reading, the entertainment value of which exceeds that of the somewhat disjointed and frantically paced film version.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No tears yet....those are coming in Books 5-7, I think...but LOTS of laughs, and more than a few chills and goosebumps moments!

Any additional comments?

I solemnly swear that I am up to no good

Story: The story continues... and gets even better! As I mentioned in my review of Chamber of Secrets, it becomes more and more clear how J.K. Rowling brilliantly created the world of Harry Potter. The characters continue to develop, new characters add to the story and the world continues to unfold in every book. The story seems to flow effortlessly from one book to the next. My favorite part of this particular book that was omitted from the movies and I didn't know about until now... The Marauders. I knew of the map, sure, but the amount of detail, backstory, everything about the Marauders added so much more to this book than I thought possible.

Performance: Gosh, once again the performance is stellar! I feel as though Jim Dale is really engaging with the characters and therefore is able to capture them quite well. I gave this a four star again because of this audio issue - the audio pauses for a few seconds making me think there is an error with the audiobook (starting to think I'm the only one with this issue). That said, the narration itself is performed wonderfully!

Overall: Seriously, how do these books get better and better?! One thing I failed to mention on the previous two books is just how much better the books are compared to the movies (but when is that not the case?). This is my first time reading / listening to this series, but still, I almost can't believe the amount of detail in the books that make them so much better and more enjoyable. Prisoner of Azkaban doesn't disappoint!

Amazing Story! Poor App

What made the experience of listening to Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Book 3 the most enjoyable?

Jim Dale's character voices.

What other book might you compare Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Book 3 to and why?

No comparison period.

What about Jim Dale’s performance did you like?

I like the tone of his voice; I feel like this is the movie version but better.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Starring Jim Dale as Everyone!

Any additional comments?

Audible, even though I love that you have added Harry Potter to your list of books I am also upset that each chapter of every Harry Potter book is missing it's chapter title which ruins the experience of this wonderful story but it is also disrespectful to J.K. Rowling and the art form of writing to totally disregard what Rowling wrote. If Rowling wanted the chapters to just be numbered she could have easily done that; she didn't; she named every chapter; the chapter titles enhance the experience not just an after thought. They are also functional because I may not always use the bookmarks or remember the number of the chapter I left off at. Often times I spot the chapters name and immediately know where I am in the story. You are the only app that I know of that doesn't include the chapter titles in there app. Please change your app to include the chapter titles for all digital audiobooks you sell.

Remarkable

We all need fantasy to turn to when reality closes in. The Chronicles of Narnia, Lord of the Rings, Peter Pan and now Harry Potter lead the way. Any one of these does the trick for me.

I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

“You think the dead we loved truly ever leave us? You think that we don't recall them more clearly in times of great trouble?”
― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

It is still hard for me to separate the first three Harry Potter novels. I read them together and they have always seemed, not distinct, but still unique in the series. It was about 1998/1999 when early signs of Potter-mania were being felt. There was a sense that this was not going to be a small thing. I bought the three novels. My wife hadn't heard anything of them and after, it was all she wanted to talk about. The cat was out of the bag and the cult of JK Rowling was taking form.

This book might also be my personal favorite among the three. The first was amazing because it was the first. The second was impressive because it showed how deep and far JK Rowling had planned this series. The third knocked me out because I found out how much I could love secondary characters in children's literature. The back stories and secondary characters MAKE this book.

When these books first dropped, I was comparing them to books by CS Lewis, JRR Tolkien, and T.H. White. Who knew that in a short decade we would be using JK Rowling as the measuring stick for them ALL?

Harry's back!

Year 3 finds harry back at school and once again in danger. Never get tired of these stories, and yet once again I am less than thrilled with Jim Dale's performance. I'd be perfectly fine if he just did a straight reading, it's just his 'voices' are at times painful, especially anytime a person actually say Harry's name. They never just say it, they always seem to scream it or whine it. What is up with that? As I've said in other reviews, love the story, don't love the narration. Hermione deserves better than to come off sounding like a complete dolt. lol

It’s GryphinDOOR , nit griphender

I love Harry Potter in all forms! I felt annoyed at the pronunciations and the horrible voice use for Hermione. The performance did not do the story justice.
