Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix

J. K. Rowling, Mary GrandPré (Illustrator)
In his fifth year at Hogwart's, Harry faces challenges at every turn, from the dark threat of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named and the unreliability of the government of the magical world to the rise of Ron Weasley as the keeper of the Gryffindor Quidditch Team. Along the way he learns about the strength of his friends, the fierceness of his enemies, and the meaning of sacrifice.

I really liked this book, even though the ending is heart-breakingly sad. This is the book where the fighting really starts and the war really begins. Bad things happen in war and this book doesn't shy away from them.

My favourite volume!

I love most everything about this book!
For one thing I love how Hermione, Ron and especially Neville and Luna get to be part of the final scenes! I like Harry Potter as well but it is nice to see the others being part of the final action. And those are yet another thing I love about this book: the entire Ministry of Magic scenes were so thrilling to read. I loved all the different rooms they came across and the strange and fantastic objects they found.
Sadly it’s also the book that got the bolder rolling for the long list of dead characters that I adored – my favourite character being one of the first to die. Then again – it does add more emotion to the story – it’s so hard to say whether I like it that way or not!

Umbridge is also a nice addition. She's obviously a nasty character and you can truly hate her - but I believe that's what makes her a good character to read about; she gets a reaction out of you and makes you want to jump right into the story and do something about it.

Anyway! This book is always wonderful to read!
