Read in September, 2010 — I own a copy , read count: 4

I have a whole new appreciation for this book after reading it along with Mark Reads Harry Potter. He's reading each book chapter by chapter and writing a review after each, so it's like reading the books for the first time. I've been immersed in HP fandom for so long that it's easy to forget the first time you read the books, to go back to that sense of wonder, and Mark gives me that.

I was amazed at how much Rowling was able to pack into each chapter. I have a whole new respect for this book. I can't wait to read books 6 and 7 along with Mark!

Brandann Wheee!

So much tension and teen angst at oppressive authority figures!

Great book! One of the best in the series!

Sophie Yeah, I've read it before, it's actually one of my least favorite to read because reading about Umbridge makes me feel physically ill--but I love Mark who Reads Harry Potter, and I love watching his reactions to things!
