Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Harry Potter, #5)

There is a door at the end of a silent corridor. And it’s haunting Harry Pottter’s dreams. Why else would he be waking in the middle of the night, screaming in terror?Harry has a lot on his mind for this, his fifth year at Hogwarts: a Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher with a personality like poisoned honey; a big surprise on the Gryffindor Quidditch team; and the looming terror of the Ordinary Wizarding Level exams. But all these things p...

    Interview with JK Rowling... Stephen Fry: Can we settle an important question?JK Rowling: Yes.Stephen Fry: How do you pronounce your last name?JK Rowling: It is Row-ling. As in rolling pin.Stephen Fry: So if any of you hear someone pronounce her name “Rohw-ling”, you have my permission to hit them over the head with — not with Order of the Phoenix, that would be cruel. Something smaller, like a fridge.

    Seriously, don't read this review if you haven't read the books. The biggest compliment I can think to give an 870 page book is that I wish it had been longer. I wish this had been longer. This book has always been my favorite in the series. Up until it, Harry’s story had been filled with light. Sure, there were some tough parts earlier on, and while it's true that some darkness crept into the ending of the previous installment, for the most pa...

    “Is it true that you shouted at Professor Umbridge?""Yes.""You called her a liar?""Yes.""You told her He Who Must Not Be Named is back?""Yes.""Have a biscuit, Potter.”This is my favourite book in my favourite series of all time. It's so rich of detail, so full of mysterious and often dark magic. So much character development, so many brave people sticking up for their friends. It's also the book that introduces us to my most hated fictional c...

    I cried like a little baby. J.K. Rowling really starts taking the series down a darker road in this book. She is so talented at character development, and it really shines in this book. Here, Harry is 15 years old, and for most of the book, he's whiny and self-centered, just like a typical teenager. I also adore Dumbledore's role in this book--his conversation at the end with Harry put me to tears. Rowling did an amazing job with the character of...

    re-read August 2018it had seriously been too long since I read this book! I love angsty Harry and all of the crazy drama that this book contains. Re-Read in December 2014 for Harry Christmas To Youok. I will start by saying that this is one of my least favorite books in the series, and that isn't because it's bad, BECAUSE IT IS DEFINITELY NOT. It's mainly due to the fact that I hate Umbridge more than words can translate, and having to read about...

    (A) 86% | ExtraordinaryNotes: It’s a transitional book, which holds back its potential, but it adds greatly to its mythos with excellent new characters.

    Despite this being the longest book in the series, I read it quicker than all the others. Here’s three things I really loved about it: 1. Harry and Sirius- they never had much time together but the time they did have really influenced Harry’s development, a few wise words from a sincere friend (or godfather) can go a real long way. And this scene was perhaps the most powerfully written in the series for me, we all know what happens next: 2. D...

    Finished this one last week and forgot to mark, but I loved it. I ended up taking a massive break for several months because I'm such a mood reader but I really have always loved this one. I remember missing the magic as a teen since Umbridge was being Umbridge but the last act remains one of the most exciting in the series. And I was really happy to get to revisit the scene where Harry talks to Nearly Headless Nick about why some wizards become ...

    Dear Dolores Umbridge, (view spoiler)[R.I.P. Sirius Black. Best friend, godfather, member of the Order. The injustice of it all hurts me every time I read this book. You will never be forgotten.

    English (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix) / Italiano«The hottest day of the summer so far was drawing to a close and a drowsy silence lay over the large, square houses of Privet Drive. Cars that were usually gleaming stood dusty in their drives and lawns that were once emerald green lay parched and yellowing; the use of hosepipes had been banned due to drought. Deprived of their usual car-washing and lawn-mowing pursuits, the inhabitan...

    This book used to be my least favorite book of the series and after rereading it, I can't understand why... I loved it!So many good things I had forgotten started here like the DA meetings. I still absolutely hate Umbridge and I'm out of my reading slump (hopefully!).

    I am always ready to pop off on anyone who says they don’t like this book because “Harry is so angsty and annoying in it.” Well, why don’t you go ahead and watch a peer die, Adolf Hitler come back to life, have a trusted adult admit they’ve been lying and manipulating you, and then get sent home for three months to live with people who hate you, all while being ghosted by the people you actually like for weeks AND SEE HOW WELL YOU DEAL ...

    ❝Things we lose have a way of coming back to us in the end, if not always in the way we expect.❞ Rating: ★ ★ ★ I feel like I'm going to get attacked for only rating a Harry Potter book 3.75 stars but Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is probably my LEAST favorite of the series thus far. It went by so slow and I felt like too much went on but at the same time nothing really happened. This book could've easily been made at least ...

    SO many feels!!!I really love this book. The plot and world gets so complex, and I'm very happy to get answers and explanations at the end!This one was a crazy, scary, and ... frustrating.. (Umbridge) ride, but still so fun.

    Guys, this was so much better than the movie. I know it's not fair to compare, but because the film version of Order of the Phoenix isn't one of my favorites, coupled with the fact that this is the longest novel in the series, I was really nervous to get to this one. Obviously I was a muggle fool who deserves to be chased around by Peeves for a full 24 hours, because this was such a vital installment that really breathed a mature life into the se...

    This book really made my CRY. And it was not just tears, I was CRYING out loud. If you've read it (or at least have seen the movie) you surely know that a very important character dies and GOD, it was heart wrenching, the tears came flowing like a waterfall. I didn't want him to die :(... Overall, I really liked this book, but I think it was way too long, it had some chapters that weren't relevant to the story... BUT THEN... there are some chapte...

    ⭐In Defense of Harry Potter: Order of the Pheonix So this is my second favorite book of Harry Potter. And I plan to tell you exactly why the fuck why. Order of the Pheonix is the most emotional book of the entire series, in a lot of ways. You have the visit to Neville's parents, Harry's ending breakdown as a character, the backstory behind Snape and Sirius... It deals with the deep emotional stuff in a way that the first few books didn't, with ...
