Harry Potter et le prisonnier d'Azkaban

Harry Potter et le prisonnier d'Azkaban, J. K. Rowling, tr. Jean-François Ménard Very good escapist fiction. Again, I saw a couple of lapses in the resolution of the story at the end, but the book was impossible to put down. The continuity in the series is becoming impressive, because Rowling is maintaining a rather mundane form (one book=one year at school, Harry saves world), but each time she adds more elements, and these elements do not conflict, but rather reveal more information about the previous books. Which indicates that Rowling must have a fairly large plan in her head to keep all this straight.
