Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, by J. K. Rowling

9788475967769Rereading this book just made me realize how long has been since I last read the series and that most of my memories of it are actually from the movies. It was practically like reading it for the first time, finding so many forgotten little details and scenes that didn’t get to or were changed in the films.

It was also a very special reading because it was my first time reading an entire novel in catalan! I studied it for three years a long time ago and even when, thanks to the internet, I have the chance to practice a little reading almost every day, reading a literary text is somehow different. I couldn’t but notice every little difference between this and the Spanish translation I grew up with, and was very surprised and amused by some of the choices, which make the whole experience even more entertaining.

Oh, and in case you never read the book or watched the movie: this is Harry’s third year at Hogwarts and it doesn’t get easier for him, as he happens to be surrounded by grim omens (at least, according to the Divination professor) and the menace of this dangerous prisoner who escaped from Azkaban -the terrifying Wizarding World’s jail- with the only goal of find him and kill him.
