Book Review ~ Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by JK Rowling


Harry Potter is furious that he is stuck at the Dursleys’ house for the summer, when he suspects that Voldemort is gathering an army, and the wizarding authorities seem unwilling to do anything.
Harry’s so-called friends are trying to keep him in the dark. But he knows that Voldemort’s forces can find him wherever he is; he could be attacked at any moment.
Harry is finally rescued from Privet Drive by members of the Order of the Phoenix – a secret society first formed years ago to fight Voldemort – and discovers that maybe he is not alone in this battle after all.

When I grow up I want to be just like JK Rowling.
Not the fame but her talent to use words and create a magical story like Harry Potter.
Order of the Phoenix is so masterfully told, you are not just someone on the outside looking in, but inside with Harry, Ron and Hermione.

Compared to the four books before, this one was not only darker, but you see Harry grow up A LOT.
So much is lumped onto his shoulders, all he and the rest of his classmates wants is a normal life at Hogwarts.

Unfortunately, it took me a long time to read this book then the rest, over a week. It was so long and being an adult kept getting in my way.

Cannot wait to read the next two books in the series.
I might take a little break, then get straight into it.
I don’t want it to finish, but then I remember….I can always read this series again.

My star rating is:
