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.
I'm finally trying to catch up with the HP books so I can read 7 when it comes out and hopefully not have the ending spoiled. I really didn't care for book 4, so some of the "magic" had gone out of the series for me, but book 5 has redeemed the series for me. I feel like the author is finally moving the story forward again.
It's weird, I guess I've seen the movies too much now because when I am reading certain parts I hear that theme music in my head... no, I'm not crazy... much.
I will be honest and I think I have said this before I started reading Harry Potter because my friend harped on me about it. I also started reading it because I love Jason Issacs. And he plays Lucius Malfoy, and I am a weird person who wont watch a movie if I haven't read the book. Therefore, I began to read Harry Potter. In addition, low and behold as the books have gone on I find myself admitting I like them. Moreover, I say this grudgingly so when you hear me say I like it you know I speak the truth.
Harry Potter and the order of the Phoenix is the best book that I have read from the series. It gets darker and we get closer as always to lord Voldemort but he is always just out of reach. Ah but not to worry Hogwarts has another horrible evil doer to keep us occupied and cheesed off. The ministry of magic gives you there very own evil of Dolores Umbridge.
So simply said, well done J.K Rowling, even if there is one part in which I physically tossed the book across the room. If you have read the book, I think you know which part I am talking about. If not well, I will not ruin it for you. However, truly when I think about it the fact that I was so emotionally involved that I tossed the book means I was attached. This is the mark of a good book.
This is possibly the best in the Harry Potter series to date.
JK Rowling does it again. Another fantastic adventure in the life of Harry Potter and his fellow wizards.
