Question above.

I understand why the film is considered the best of Harry Potter films, but why is the book praised so much? It's not that I don't like it-I do-I was just never enthralled by it like the other books. It's not even in the Top 5 of the books for me. My favorite book is Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

If you ask me I'd say because the first two were kind of innocent stories for a younger audience. PoA got very serious and "heavier". I remember reading it when I was in my second or third year of secondary school and at night I read about Sirius coming after Harry and the dementors chasing him which all felt very scary and serious. The characters got more of a background, too.
I think that's why it's considered a very good book, it changed the series. Or maybe I can relate to the story and that's why i understand it's considered the best book. Personally I liked PoA and HbP the best.
