Review: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling

Published July 10th 2004 by Bloomsbury Publishing
Paperback, 766 pages
sbn: 0747561079

"Harry Potter is due to start his fifth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. His best friends Ron and Hermoine have been very secretive all summer and he is desperate to get back to school and find out what has been going on. However, what Harry discovers is far more devastating than he could ever have expected...

Suspense, secrets and thrilling action from the pen of J.K. Rowling ensure an electrifying adventure that is impossible to put down.




This is one of the more emotional books in the series. Umbridge is on my "top-hate" list and Sirius death is really sad.

The book ends with a "what now" feel. Voldemort is out in the open. Harry knows now why his parents were killed and that ultimately he has to kill Voldemort or die himself.

I love that we get so see more of Neville and Luna. They are some of my favourite characters. I also enjoy seeing Harry explore relationships. Fred and George become my hero's in this book :)

This book is vivid, sad, startling and brilliant!

A true masterpiece!

"You're the one who is weak. You will never know love or friendship. And I feel sorry for you."

"Just because you have the emotional range of a teaspoon doesn't mean we all have."

"You're a prefect? Oh Ronnie! That's everyone in the family!"
"What are Fred and I? Next door neighbors?"

"From now on, I don't care if my tea leaves spell 'Die, Ron, Die,' I'm chucking them in the bin where they belong."

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Harry Potter #6) by J.K. Rowling,

Order of the Phoneix had some funny bits. I must agree. I didn't think the trial had to be as long, but once they got to school, I quite enjoyed the book.

Love the Christmas lights you have separating the post/comments!

I always enjoy reading a new take on this series. Umbridge is definitely on my top “hate list” too! Have a great rest of the weekend!
