Read by Jim Dale.

For twelve years, the dread fortress of Azkaban held an infamous prisoner named Sirius Black. Convicted of killing thirteen people with a single curse, he was said to be the heir apparent to the Dark Lord, Voldemort. Now he has escaped, leaving only two clues as to where he might be headed: Harry Potter's defeat of You-Know-Who was Black's downfall as well; and the Azkaban guards heard Black muttering in his sleep, "He's at Hogwarts." Harry isn't safe, not even within the walls of his magical school, because there may well be a traitor in their midst.

harry potter

I absolutely love listening to tis Harry Potter book on CD. Its a fabulous way to experience the magic of the book agai. It's a fantastic story and a great installment in the Harry Potter series.


I really suggest this!

Again, Jim Dale is the man!

Such a great reading of the book!


Loved the mystery surrounding the escaped prisoner and his connection to Harry.


Such a great book


Fantastic for summer road trip!



Jim Dale is class.

I would listen to these just for Mr. Dale. The fact that I dig the story is a huge bonus.

One of the best HP Books

The Harry Potter series is a great one and this book on tape makes the entire reading experience even better. The voice and the quite music adds tension and creates suspense , making this book even better. Even if you have already read this book, listen to the book on tape and it will change your entire experience with this book.

Best of jk Rowling

The only harry potter book that is better than harry potter and the prisoner of azkaban is harry potter and the prisoner of azkaban being voiced by the British musician, jim dale.
This is one of the happier less stressful books that takes place just before the junk hits the fan in the series.
It was difficult to pick, but this book is my fave.
My only criticism is: who is letting their kids touch CDs and DVDs right after eating glazed donuts and buttered popcorn??? Every disk I find has petrified little handprints that you almost want to sand off.Throw them up on a shelf where babies can't open the case and poke at them. That's what I do. I think some of these audiobooks might need replacing.

Time turner confusion

I thought the time turner storyline was more confusing with the audiobooks than reading it.

Prisoner of Azkaban audiobook

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is the third book in the Harry Potter series (and my personal favorite). Jim Dale does a great job as the narrator for all of the Harry Potter audiobooks. He changes up his voice for different characters but usually not in a too extreme and distracting way. Great for traveling or bedtime stories - though unless you've read or listened to them before, they can be too exciting or emotional to be very relaxing.

For everyone!

My kids - aged 13, 9, and 5 - are all completely captivated by this book and by Jim Dale's narration. This got us through several multi-hour car rides recently. Highly recommend the whole series in audio!

Prisoner of Azkaban

This is a Book on CD. The story is one of my favorites of Harry Potter.


a good, entertaining book with a happy ending!


this was a okay book not that good and not that bad



great movie

I love all the harry potter films


We are currently listening to The Prisoner of Azkaban as a family on car trips. We reached the climax today and my eight-year-old, who is hearing this story for the first time, is completely captivated. I have heard Jim Dale read this book several times, and I could listen to it over and over without ever getting bored. Amazing book read by an incredibly talented reader.

my favorate books of all time

Like approximately 100 million other people, this is my favorite book series of all times. My favorite will forever be the first book. I read the first 4 or 5 chapters of that book all the time, I just love the way he finds out.

If you haven’t read them because of the genre that they have been put into, please worry about that no longer, these books transcend genre, they are just that good.

One tip that you may not get elsewhere is that I recommend listening to the UK audio recording, Jim Dale is good, but Stephen Fry is better
