“Mischief Managed.” ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Third book out of seven… and I have been watching the movies after I finish every book, and I have found them to be pretty close and I like them really much.

Once I started to watch the third movie, I found out that this one was more dark and somber than the rest, and this is because the director changed. His decisions are completely different from the previous director, and I like them good but there was so much left and some modifications done too. I know that the movies cannot be completely faithful to the book for different reasons, and one of them is the director.

I have watched the movies before and until now I am reading the books. So, in my ignorance I was always intrigued and felt like I needed to know more about Lupin but the movie left so much outside of this character, and all changed and most of all my doubts where completely cleared. I never knew the story of how Lupin was bitten by a werewolf, the story of the shake, the discovery of the map creators, and the magnificent role of Crookshanks.

I think the director wanted to give a more important role to Harry, even if is already the main character, to Harry as he is connecting all the dots of Sirius and Pettigrew in the movie. On the book, he is completely unaware of what is going on. The same thing happens with Lupin and Sirus Black. Some things are never explained on the movie, but on the book we are able to finally linked the dots by ourselves. The whole animagi classes and transformation made a lot of sense. The movie was, as I said, too gloomy, and I think that this book had more of a sentimental and touchy effect on the characters, mainly Harry.

We have so many important characters being introduced to the series and the story. Characters that will help the story to move on an that will touch and destroy our hearts later on. Rowling has started to weave a think web of events and so far we have only seen the tip of the iceberg. It is magnificent to see how little by litter the beat of the story starts to move faster and darker.

So far, I will say that this is my favorite book of all as it starts to weave the net of complicated events, and I need to mention that the narrations of the Quidditch games are still hilarious! One more book out of the list! But I seem not to have enough so far of Harry Potter!

  1. Azkaban is my FAVORITE Harry Potter by far. Love, love, love this book. The mystery, the time travel, learning more about the marauders. (While I thought the film was gorgeous, it fell short for me. They really left out all the important parts of the marauders story, and I think people who haven’t read the books really missed something. And it wouldn’t have taken much to truly explain the marauders.) My very favorite part though was that Harry finds his father inside himself. Oh that makes me cry every single time. ❤

    1. I agree, even though the movie was good, it missed some information that for us to understand better what happened and what is happening was missing.

      I liked it because after not having anything besides Ron and Hermione, he know has a godfather and friends that actually care about him. The patronus, as far as I remember, was never explained on why Harry said that he saw his father… and that the book explains it since it is the same patronus.

      I am not a fan of time traveling to be honest haha I think it makes everything more complicated and might messed up a lot the whole story. I haven’t cry with Harry Potter yet… haha I have laughed a lot though

      I am on “The Order of the Phoenix”, and I think I like it a lot… but I am not sure which will be my favorite after I finish them all haha
