it was amazing

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is the fifth installment of the Harry Potter series and is the first book following the return of He-Who-Not-Be-Typed as Harry and his friend return to Hogwarts for their fifth year.

In a fashion typical of a government, the Ministry of Magic refuses to acknowledge the growing threat that has emerged in the last year and instead seems to be focusing on controlling the wizarding communities' perceptions rather than facing the threat head-on.

I greatly appreciate Rowling's emphasis on character development in this book, particularly with regard to the new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher. Delores Umbridge is one of my favorites Hogwarts teachers, which will surprise everyone who has read the book as she is absolutely horrible. Bad-tempered, selfish, and just plain rotten to the core she's probably a better villain than the Dark Lord himself.

5-stars, I would highly recommend this book to fans of the Harry Potter series but only if you have already read the first four books otherwise I imagine it would be hard to keep up and not everyone pays as much attention to the Harry Potter lore as I do especially given the return of You-Know-Who as the end of the last book.
