About Author

  1. See also Robert GalbraithAlthough she writes under the pen name J.K Rowling, pronounced like rolling, her name when her first Harry Potter book was published was simply Joanne Rowling Anticipating that the target audience of young boys might not want to read a book written by a woman, her publishers demanded that she use two initials, rather than her full name As she had no middle name, she chose K as the second initial of her pen name, from her paternal grandmother Kathleen Ada Bulgen Rowling She calls herself Jo and has said, No one ever called me Joanne when I was young, unless they were angry Following her marriage, she has sometimes used the name Joanne Murray when conducting personal business During the Leveson Inquiry she gave evidence under the name of Joanne Kathleen Rowling In a 2012 interview, Rowling noted that she no longer cared that people pronounced her name incorrectly.Rowling was born to Peter James Rowling, a Rolls Royce aircraft engineer, and Anne Rowling n e Volant , on 31 July 1965 in Yate, Gloucestershire, England, 10 miles 16 km northeast of Bristol Her mother Anne was half French and half Scottish Her parents first met on a train departing from King s Cross Station bound for Arbroath in 1964 They married on 14 March 1965 Her mother s maternal grandfather, Dugald Campbell, was born in Lamlash on the Isle of Arran Her mother s paternal grandfather, Louis Volant, was awarded the Croix de Guerre for exceptional bravery in defending the village of Courcelles le Comte during the First World War.Rowling s sister Dianne was born at their home when Rowling was 23 months old The family moved to the nearby village Winterbourne when Rowling was four She attended St Michael s Primary School, a school founded by abolitionist William Wilberforce and education reformer Hannah More Her headmaster at St Michael s, Alfred Dunn, has been suggested as the inspiration for the Harry Potter headmaster Albus Dumbledore.As a child, Rowling often wrote fantasy stories, which she would usually then read to her sister She recalls that I can still remember me telling her a story in which she fell down a rabbit hole and was fed strawberries by the rabbit family inside it Certainly the first story I ever wrote down when I was five or six was about a rabbit called Rabbit He got the measles and was visited by his friends, including a giant bee called Miss Bee At the age of nine, Rowling moved to Church Cottage in the Gloucestershire village of Tutshill, close to Chepstow, Wales When she was a young teenager, her great aunt, who Rowling said taught classics and approved of a thirst for knowledge, even of a questionable kind, gave her a very old copy of Jessica Mitford s autobiography, Hons and Rebels Mitford became Rowling s heroine, and Rowling subsequently read all of her books.Rowling has said of her teenage years, in an interview with The New Yorker, I wasn t particularly happy I think it s a dreadful time of life She had a difficult homelife her mother was ill and she had a difficult relationship with her father she is no longer on speaking terms with him She attended secondary school at Wyedean School and College, where her mother had worked as a technician in the science department Rowling said of her adolescence, Hermione a bookish, know it all Harry Potter character is loosely based on me She s a caricature of me when I was eleven, which I m not particularly proud of Steve Eddy, who taught Rowling English when she first arrived, remembers her as not exceptional but one of a group of girls who were bright, and quite good at English Sean Harris, her best friend in the Upper Sixth owned a turquoise Ford Anglia, which she says inspired the one in her books.

One thought on “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

  1. re read in February 2016Harry is getting his sass on I love it Re Read in December 2014 for Harry Christmas to YouOH MAN THIS BOOK IS SO MY FAVORITE.The phone conversation at the beginning between Ron and Uncle Vernon was PRICELESS I wish so much that that scene had been in the movie.I was so into reading this book that I failed to take notes, so I don t have many specifics to add except that I love how Crookshanks was basically Sirius s secret agent spy cat friend and I LOVE THAT.Also, this boo [...]

  2. I last read this book when I was 14 years old, given that I m almost 32 now, I have a whole new perspective on it Despite the fact that I gave this book 5 stars previously, I have to admit that it didn t grow on me until this, my second read Confession time I didn t like Remus or Sirius Khanh ducks as rotten fruit and eggs are thrown her way OK, OK, I M SORRY I ve since changed my mind Notice that I used the past tense.Obviously, there will be spoilers for the book below, for the 1.5 of you who [...]

  3. I m beginning to wonder if there will ever be a Defence Against The Dark Arts teacher who is just a teacher.

  4. It s a rainy Sunday It s colder than it should be this time of the year, so I m drinking a delicious cup of coffee and I m browsing my shelves only to realise that I haven t written a Harry Potter review Not a single one So, I decided to start with the first Harry Potter book I ever read, the one that took me to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and made me believe that magic is something tangible I solemnly swear that I am up to no good I was 16 years old, and I had just started my en [...]

  5. Still five stars Love this so much Can t review Couldn t even take notes Watched the movie immediately after finishing Need next book Wish I lived in this world Damn you, Rowling.

  6. I m just going to add a few gifs and pictures from my book Harry Potter books will always be 5 star no matter how many times they are read Hermione forever I fell in love with S Black in this book and I never looked back.I m going to add some pictures from my book, although now, I wish I would have added but it is what it is maybe later I love these big illustrated coffee table editions of the books It makes re reading them an extremely fun experience I just wish she would put them all out at o [...]

  7. Since pretty much everyone I know has read these books, I figure reviewing them is pretty pointless But with the new book coming out in a couple of weeks, I have to go through them beginning to end To make the reviews entertaining, I will be doing them in a variety of unexpected formats For this review, I will be writing as Crookshanks fan fiction.Crookshanks swished his tail back and forth as he crept up the stairs to the boys bedrooms He knew the rat wasn t what it was pretending to be, but a [...]

  8. Loved it, duh It s my favorite in the series and I m not sure I got anything NEW out of this reread except some reminders on what a dick Snape is how Crookshanks was MVP in getting the passwords to Sirius Black.

  9. Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light When I finished Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban for the first time, it immediately became my next favourite book J K Rowling outdid herself, and wrote something even bigger and better than before And she ll keep doing it for another 4 books.There s just nothing to criticise about book 3 Compared to the other books there s not a single scene that makes me uncomfortable, that I d prefer to ski [...]

  10. This is my favourite book in the Harry Potter series It marks a distinct change in tone and a maturation of the writing As the characters grew older, the challenges they faced became dark and intense The plot became murkier especially in regard to Sirius and his involvement or lack thereof in the murders of Potter s parents It all just got so much better I think this is a large part of Rowling s success She could have fell into a trap and continuously wrote books like the first two, but instead [...]

  11. That was awesome I really should have read this about ten years ago when all the cool kids did I m enjoying this series so much and it s great I have no idea what happens next No spoilers, please x

  12. OKAY This book was fantastic I can t get over how everything just fell into place perfectly Prisoner of Azkaban is my favorite of the series so far which is actually a surprise since Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was my least favorite movie growing up.But reading and watching the movie truly is a different experience Even though I ve seen the movies repeatedly year after year, I was still on my toes while I was turning the pages of my book It was like I was seeing all of this for the [...]

  13. ENGLISH Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban ITALIANOSirius Black s escape from Azkaban prison is on every wizard s lips Not even the dreaded guards of the prison, the Dementors, managed to keep in a cage the wicked wizard, who probably want to meet again his master, Voldemort But to do that, firstly he must kill Harry Potter, the only one capable to stand up to Voldemort Meanwhile, the new school year is about to start at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and Harry, Ron and hermio [...]

  14. HOLY SHIT Every single seemingly pointless detail somehow ended up meaning something to the bigger story Superb storytelling I AM IN LOVE

  15. Harry Potter for me is like warm apple pie and vanilla ice cream It is the ultimate comfort read This must have been at least the 10th time I ve read it but I have lost track The theme I can take out of this particular book especially after reading it all these times is hope Harry largely naive for most of the first three books, meets Sirius for the first time and his world changes For ever so briefly he thinks he can leave the Dursleys for good and live entirely in the wizarding world Of course [...]

  16. Literally one of the best books I ve ever read I was chained to it for two days I cried and laughed and yelled SHIT when all of the action went down.I m such a peasant for judging this series before I had read it I read the first two and half of this one when I was about 10, before reading was cool, before I had the attention span that reading requires I know these are kids books but I was a particularly distracted child I did not know, Mother Rowling Forgive my sin, and all the times when I sai [...]

  18. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban or how J.K Rowling decided that Harry s life was way too easy narrated by James text by James jokes by James or not.It is said that one year, said Harry Potter woke up with an unpleasing relative on his head And, being the angsty preteen that he was, he blew her up Of course, actions have consequences ladies and gentlemen So, Harry was forced to leave the shelter of his humble abode Just when he thought he was now alone in the wild, he raised his wand lik [...]

  19. Full review posted Wow, did this book do better than the previous book on MULTIPLE levels s I feel like this is the book where the series begins to mature and im so here for it The first half was similar to the other books and was really losing my attention, but the second half picked up so much and I was honestly giving up valuable sleep time to keep up with the book The characters honestly are everything The characters in this book are so COMPLEX I LOVE IT Lupin is the best human being in this [...]

  20. Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light Third buddy read with my OTPMy god, this was gooooooooooood Up until now I ve definitely enjoyed the books, but this had a darker side to the story which I really really enjoyed I loved the fact that we got SO much in this book We find out about James Potter along with Lupin, Serius and Peter while at the school and the Marauder s Map GIRL I LOVE IT.We get to see lots of magical aspects in this boo [...]

  21. This is my review of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban It s a great book but not without its problems.D you get it It s because every goddamn sentence of this book contains either a dash or an ellipsis That s one of theoblems emmareadstoomuch.wordpressI m debating whether to unleash the anti Snape rant that s been building up inside me for a decade now I think I ll wait until his supposedly redeeming backstory is revealed What book is that in Anyway, just his extensive presence in this bo [...]
