Order of the Phoenix is the best yet. The quality of the character development is superb. Her description of the frustration and anger of the adolescent Harry is outstanding. Hermione's development rivals Harry's in scope and her quip to Ron about his inability to fathom Cho's emotions probably is one of the more succinct descriptions of the differences between the sexes in existence. Ron's dealing with an increasingly complex relationship with his friends and his tenure at Hogwarts is well done.
Additionally, we are treated to a developing depth of prose. Rowling's description of the change from October to November is almost poetic.
Aside from a great imagination combined with a great storyteller's gift, Rowling is just fun to read.
Rest in peace Serious Black. I shed a tear for this character and for Harry. My summer that went to Potter is going strong! I have to disagree that this books was too long, I believe that it had to be this long in order for us to see the change that Harry is going through.
He is no longer the little 11 year that we began with, he is older and darker, his connection with the dark lord is getting stronger and I think we need all the dialogue that this book stets up in order to show us how hard is to be Harry and NO I don't think he is whining. J.K. Rowling did a superb job with the Order of the Phoenix. I'm just sad that serious had to die
The fifth book is darker yet. It begins with Harry and his cousin Dudley coming across a couple of dementors very close to home. Harry just manages to save Dudley from having his soul sucked out. Harry’s uncle is terribly angry – not that he is able to do anything about it. That’s also when Harry finds out that Mundungus Fletcher has been keeping an eye on him on Dumbledore’s instructions.
Harry performs the patronus charm to drive away the dementors and the ministry of magic sends him a letter by owl post insisting that he would be expelled from Hogwarts for performing underage magic outside the school. After a while, he receives another owl post where Harry is ordered to present himself for a hearing at the ministry of magic.
A group of friendly wizards including Mad-eyed Moody, Lupin and Tonks come to Privet Drive and take Harry with them to No. 12 Grimmauld Place, which is the headquarters for the Order of Phoenix.
The Order of Phoenix is a group of wizards who have volunteered to work underground to overthrow Lord Voldemort.
Sirius Black is also a part of the order and so is Professor Snape, much to Harry’s shock. While he does not trust Snape, it looks like Dumbledore thinks differently.
There is the hearing at the ministry and then Harry receives instructions from Dumbledore to learn Occlumency from Professor Snape. All in all, Harry begins to hate life at school. Lord Voldemort seems to have a strong connection with Harry and the latter is able to read you-know-who’s thoughts and feel his emotions.Read more ›
