"'Welcome to the Knight Bus, emergency transport for the stranded witch or wizard. Just stick out your wand hand, step on board and we can take you anywhere you want to go.'"
When the Knight Bus crashes through the darkness and screeches to a halt in front of him, it's the start of another far from ordinary year at Hogwarts for Harry Potter. Sirius Black, escaped mass-murderer and follower of Lord Voldemort, is on the run - and they say he is coming after Harry. In his first ever Divination class, Professor Trelawney sees an omen of death in Harry's tea leaves.... But perhaps most terrifying of all are the Dementors patrolling the school grounds, with their soul-sucking kiss....

The Threat From Within
The increasing suspense as it becomes clear that there is an intruder in the castle who will stop at nothing in their quest to murder Harry....as his parents before him were brutally murdered.
The discovery of the true identity of the traitor, and the way in which he was able to infiltrate the castle. I also roared with laughter at Lee Jordan's commentary during the Quidditch Final match, loved the revelation of the way in which Hermione was able to complete the heaviest courseload in Third Year history, and was chilled by Professor Trelawney's eerie trance-state prediction regarding Harry's ultimate fate.
Jim Dale BECOMES these characters; they come to life thanks to his expert reading, the entertainment value of which exceeds that of the somewhat disjointed and frantically paced film version.
No tears yet....those are coming in Books 5-7, I think...but LOTS of laughs, and more than a few chills and goosebumps moments!
