It has some heavy topics, dealing with the loss of a loved one, character assassination, corrupt authority, civil disobedience, violence vs. pacifism. Perhaps you as an adult should read it first (and it is a good read) so that you can discuss these issues with your child.

My nine year old granddaughter has read it, now I am anxious to discuss it with her and find out what she thought about it and those issues.(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.

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 part, that was a pretty happy book compared to this.

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

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 character ever. Never have I hated anyone as much as Um

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:

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.
Emily (Books with Emily Fox)
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!).

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 200 pages shorter if J.K. Rowling got rid of all the point

عن قمع الحرية، الصحافة التي تتحول لبوق السلطة

Recommends it for: tried and true Harry Potter fans
hrrmmpp.
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,

I finished this book and now I’m sad AF. I seriously cried through so much of the last few hours of the audiobook. One of my favorite characters is gone, and I had to listen to Umbridge for hours and hours. Yeah. Sad AF.

Me: Okay, I’m not going to have ANY time to read for the next two weeks, and I’m close to falling behind on my reading goal, so I should be careful what I pick up.

Me to me: 870 pages sounds about right.

I don’t even know if I can write a cohesive review of this. I’ve been reading it for SO LONG. The notes I took at the beginning have long since disappeared and I just can’t remember vast swaths of this book. This might be a review of the last 200 pages.

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



Reread - Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix always gives me a challenge whenever I start reading. It's 870 pages for US edition and 1000+ pages for Thai edition. The book starts off with a summer when Harry banters with Dudley, and there comes the Dementors. So Harry has to use his magic to expel those nasty things. He never knows before his act will bring him to M.o.M. In the beginning, J.K. Rowling used the first few chapters to intro

*This was a reread for me*

This has always been my least favorite book and movie in the entire series and I’ve never really understood why. I didn’t know whether it was the plot, the characters OR the fact this book super long. Despite this being my least favorite I still, of course, loved it but now that I’ve reread it I’ve noticed many different things I’ve missed when I read it for the first time. This book is still amazing and I obviously will give it five stars.

A lot of people consider The Order of the Phoenix to be the weakest book in the entire Harry Potter series. I haven't read the last two installments yet, but from what I have read so far ... this one was my favorite. I enjoyed two other books in the series more than this one (The Sorcerer's Stone and The Goblet of Fire), but enjoyment is not necessarily the only aspect allowing a book to turn into a favorite.

Let's go on the dark side here. While the previous books were still light-hearted in the

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

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!

Book Review
4 out of 5 stars for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, the 5th book in the original 7 book "Harry Potter" young adult fantasy series published in 2003 by J.K. Rowling. I cannot believe this is over 15 years old, as I think about what I want to put in my review. Given it's HP, and everyone does review on it, I'm keeping it short. A few things I loved about this book:

1. Dolores Umbridge is awesome. Awesome as a villain, that is. She brings out the worst in so many people, a

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
