And it's haunting Harry Potter's dreams. Why else would he be waking in the middle of the night, screaming in terror? — Here are just a few things on Harry's mind: — • A Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher with a personality like poisoned honey. — • A venomous, disgruntled hou... more »se-elf
• Ron as keeper of the Gryffindor Quidditch team
• The looming terror of the end-of-term Ordinary Wizarding Level exams
. . . and of course, the growing threat of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. In the richest installment yet of J. K. Rowling's seven-part story, Harry Potter is faced with the unreliability of the very government of the magical world and the impotence of the authorities at Hogwarts.
Despite this (or perhaps because of it), he finds depth and strength in his friends, beyond what even he knew, boundless loyalty; and unbearable sacrifice.

I consider the Harry Potter series to be the best books I've ever read, and the Order of the Phoenix is one of my favorites. J.K. Rowling is an outstanding writer. These books deserve every ounce of publicity they've gotten over the years.
I loved this installment of Harry Potter! The Order of the Phoenix focuses on the fight against Voldemort. I don't think its as dark as the Goblet of Fire, but you do see Harry and his friends finding themselves as teenagers (lots of angst!!!). It's one of the best books in the series.

How can I say anything bad about Harry Potter. I cut mt fantasy teeth and these books. Have read the entire series who knows how many times. Love them all! Great reads for everyone! *****CAUTION: I would mention that the further up the Harry Potter series goes, the more mature the subject matter. Before giving this book to a child, an adult should preview it.
