Prisoner of Azkaban . pdf | Free Ebook Download | Harry Potter
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is the third novel in the Harry Potter series written by J. K. Rowling. The book follows Harry, a young wizard, in his third year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, during which Harry, along with Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, investigate Sirius Black, an escaped prisoner from Azkaban, whom they believe is one of Lord Voldermort's old allies.
The book was published in the United Kingdom on 8 July 1999 by Bloomsbury and in the United States on 8 September 1999 by Scholastic Inc. Rowling found the book easy to write, finishing it just a year after she had begun writing it. The book sold 68,000 copies in just three days after its release in the United Kingdom, and since has sold over three million in the country. The book won the 1999 Whitbread Children's Book Award, the Bram Stoker Award, the 2000 Locus Award for Best Fantasy Novel, and was short-listed for other awards, including the Hugo.
The film version of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, released in 2004, is currently the lowest grossing of the Harry Potter series films, but it still grossed more than $796 million and earned noble critical acclaim. Video games loosely based on Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban were also released for several platforms, and most obtained favourable reviews.
