729 Words2 Pages

Harry Potter is not a normal boy. He lives with his aunt and uncle and his cousin because his parents were murdered by the most powerful dark lord, Lord Voldemort. He attends a school for wizards called Hogwarts and learns about spells, potions, the dark arts, and etc. Non-magic people are called Muggles and the Muggles are completely oblivious to this world. In the third book of the Harry Potter series, it starts on Harry’s birthday with Harry lying in his room receiving an owl post from his friends. The next morning Harry hears about a man named Sirius Black and that he escaped from a prison. While this goes on, Aunt Marge comes to visit the Dursleys. Harry accidentally causes his aunt to inflate and then runs away to the Knight Bus. But before he gets on the bus Harry sees a large, black dog. The bus drops him off by Diagon Alley and is awaited by Cornelius Fudge, the Minister of Magic. Harry spends the rest of his summer here before going back to Hogwarts. When Harry is on the train to Hogwarts with his two best friends, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, the train suddenly stops. The lights start to go out and the train becomes very cold. A Dementor has stopped the train. This causes Harry to faint and Professor Lupin revives him. The next day Harry has his first class, Divination. His teacher, Professor Trelawney, sees a Grim in the bottom of Harry’s cup. The Grim stands for death. His classes then carry on as usual for a little while. Then on Halloween night, Sirius Black breaks into the castle in search of Harry but doesn’t find him. After the holidays, Harry gets trained to fight the Dementors because they affect him the most. They affect him the most because of his past. The end of the year is coming around which... ... middle of paper ... ...isn’t the brightest of students but he does know a lot about Quidditch. Quidditch is a sport where you fly on broomsticks and try to get a ball through one of the three hoops. Ron has bright red hair and has one younger sister and five older brothers. His father works at the Ministry of Magic. Hermione Granger is Harry’s other best friend. She is a very smart wizard, a know it all and has brown, curly hair. Hermione is a Muggle-born wizard which means both of her parents don’t have magical powers. Her life revolves around school. Whenever she is not in class, she is either studying, doing homework, or she is in the library reading. Overall I think this is a great book. I would recommend this book to others but you would have to read the first two books before this one. I would recommend this book because it has a great story line and there is never a dull moment.
