Yes, it has heavy topics, but having grown up with the series I feel like it's important for children to read about heavy topics if they understand them. Complex story lines and ideas shouldn't exclude children, if the individual child is ready for it.(less)

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.
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 Umbridge...never have I hated a fictional charact ...more

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.

Re-Read in December 2014 for Harry Christmas To You

ok. 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 her so much just infuriates me, rather than giving me warm fuzzies the entire time I'm reading.

That being said, here are some of my thoughts on the book:

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. Yes, yes, there were some tough parts, yes, yes, some darkness tinged the edges of the previous one, but honestly, that was a pretty happy book compared to this. Good still triumphed over evil, our hero

Recommends it for: tried and true Harry Potter fans
This is my least favourite of the Harry Potter series, and almost borders on the "don't bother". It is saved only by the virtue that it is a Harry Potter book and moves the series along to the still yet unknown finale.
My issues with it:
- deals with complex social/political problems in a simplified, extreme, and dichotomous manner
- characterisations are too easy/lazy- all good or all bad (with the exception of Snape who's good/evil intentions are yet unknown), all courageous or cowardly,

Maravilloso, increíble!! Este libro me dejó destrozada, con los ojos hinchados de llorar y con el corazón en pedacitos.

La historia y los personajes han madurado mucho, el libro tiene un ritmo perfecto y es una ruleta rusa de emociones. Hay nuevos misterios y nuevos descubrimientos, amé este libro como he amado a los demás de la saga.

Odie con mi alma a Dolores Umbridge

Instead of a review, I’m just going to share my memories of this book. Back when this came out was the high time of midnight bookstore release parties. Yes, I did go to one and no, I didn’t dress up.

It was held at a Barnes and Noble and of course John Williams’s soundtrack for the first 2 movies was played on a loop throughout the night. Amidst the crowd eagerly awaiting the stroke of 12, were tired adult chaperones and sullen workers who had had enough already. My brother brought me to the stor

Harry Potter changed my life. If I hadn’t read Harry Potter when I did I would not be the same person today. What I am today, in a part is due to Harry. I cannot really say enough to make you understand how much Harry Potter means to me.

The copy I own is not signed by J. K. Rowling but it is signed by Daniel Radcliffe!

So much teenage angst, so many feelings, such epic
J.G. Keely
This is my favorite installment of the quintessential modern bildungsroman. Nevertheless, it has its problems, familiar to any reader of Rowling's.

She never seems to gain control of her writing, which spirals out into thousand-page doorstops filled with unimportant side characters and rambling plots. The story is moved along by arbitrary plot devices, often magic. Instead of using the magic to make her world seem more strange and wondrous, she uses it to cover up plot holes. Why write a consiste

“Wit beyond measure is a man's greatest treasure.”

Each time & every time I start an HP book I'm blown away by how much every book is different than the last one..

From the very beginning of the book, just like Harry, I was mad at Dumbledore cause he really seemed to ignoring Harry, which as a fact he was, but then at last when Dumbledore told Harry the reasons why he had been acting so distant I couldn't help feeling sorry for Dumbledore and the fact that instead of stopping Harry from sho

I know there a lot of super-keen Potter fans out there, so, um, you may not want to read this review. But! But! WAIT! The biggest thing you need to know is: I seriously love this series. I do. It's so detailed and thorough and interesting and I totally see why it's captured the world in it's wizarding claws. BUT. I didn't grow up ...more

What stands out in book 5:

* Harry's outburst to his friends at No. 12 Grimmauld Place. A combination of frustration over being kept in the dark and fear that he will be expelled fuels much of Harry's anger, and it all comes out at once, directly aimed at Ron and Hermione. Rowling perfectly portrays Harry's frustration at being too old to shirk responsibility, but too young to be accepted as part of the fight that he knows is coming.
* Harry's detention with Professor Umbridge. Rowling shows her

Why does the biggest book in this series (I like big books and I cannot lie) have to have the most annoying character (Umbridge)? I feel awful saying she deserved what she got.. but she definitely deserved what she got.

Oh, and the Weasley twins are everything.

“Indifference and neglect often do much more damage than outright dislike.”


This book may not be perfect, but it was inching its way toward that finish line. I enjoy comedic, childlike humor as much as the rest of the fans, but to me when the story gets a little darker (deeper), it gets even better.

We get a return of favorite characters, but as with the other books, we also get new ones. While the rest of the series introduced new characters that were fun and that we actually wanted to read

A week ago I would've told you this was my least favorite Harry Potter novel. A week ago I would've told you that Harry seems so bratty, and the story just isn't that interesting in this iteration.

I want to travel in time to a week ago and slap myself.

I haven't reread this book in years. Probably since I was in 8th grade (for those curious I just celebrated my 20th birthday). I was more than content to just watch the movie if I eve needed my OotP fix. Flash forward to last year, where I stopped

Noooooo. I am so sad right now! I had completely forgotten about a certain character's death. I was just not ready for it! :'(

In general, this book made me feel such a wide range of emotions for its characters. I don't think I've ever hated someone as much as I have hated Dolores Umbridge, Snape certainly has more of my pity, James Potter lost some of his shine but he and Lily (L.E. <3) are still my favorite ship and I'm aching for their story, Harry was so moody but my heart just broke for h

Reread in December 2014 for harryxmastoyou

This one took me so long to get through because of so many things coming up but it was still great! I feel like as the books get later there are so many things I forgot were in there that weren't in the movie, like the fight scene at the end is TOTALLY DIFFERENT. I really loved this book this time around.
Vane J.

Having known what was going to happen in this book didn't make it any easier for me. In fact, it was worse because you know you can't do anything, and you're actually expecting the bad things to happen.

But the thing is, the first time I read these books, I only liked them; I wasn't attached to neither the story nor the characters - I simply enjoyed them. All that changed with this reread, in which I found myself surprisingly immersed in them and I was a victim of what most book-lovers suffer: Ca
