Before reading the Prisoner of Azkaban, I honestly was very confused about this Prisoner… As I wasn’t watching the movies in order, I didn’t notice the explanation of why he was there and how did he get out….
Sirius Black, a mass murderer who was sentenced and imprisoned in Azkaban, had escaped. He was supposed to be the one who was on evil Voldemort’s side too… And everyone believed that Black was after Harry….
- Betrayal: There were quite a few betrayal of friendships in this book. Some were less hurtful, but some were actually deadly.
In real life, betrayal happens often. It’s a sad reality. However, I still believe in the goodness of humanity.
Faith: For quite a few of the characters, they had to have faith in themselves. They had to believe that what they were doing was right, no matter how many people, family and friends, pointed a finger at them, criticizing them.
How many times have you done something that you believed was the right thing to do, but a lot of people said you were wrong?
For decades (still happening), I was the target of constant humiliation and criticism….From my choice of employment, to my attirement to how I was raising my children, and ultimately, how I should allow others to ridicule me!
Like Harry Potter, I often felt alone, fighting off “scary Dementors” all around me. These life sucking individuals believed they had the right to drain my talent, my enthusiasm and my love at their disposal. When I was younger, I was inexperienced. I thought they were trying to train me to be stronger and more independent.
I was wrong!
They only pushed me so hard to test my boundary. Now, that I am much, much older and wiser, I refuse to bend to their demands.
How they hate it! They call me selfish, lazy, irresponsible and stubborn…. They desperately try to convince me that EVERYONE THINKS OF ME BADLY. Yes, everyone is the whole world….Now, is that true?
But to be honest, I don’t care and I shouldn’t care! Because only people that really care for me understand me. Furthermore, this is my life and my business….
Yay or Nay
Yay! It answered many of my questions and even had a lot of twists and turns….. I was suspicious about a couple characters and was pleasantly surprised….
