"Killing is not so easy as the innocent believe."
I am dead. I can't. . .

It hurts just as much the second time *cries hysterically*

I would like to say a few words. And here they are: Nitwit! Blubber! Oddment! Tweak!
My Review of Harry Potter and Order of the Phoenix
1st read in August 2014
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/5 (9.0/10)
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is an eye-opener. J.K. Rowling lets the reader dive into Voldemort’s past. Harry understands why Voldemort is who he is and what Voldemort’s principles are. This information is very satisfactory for the reader because by knowing the mystery that is Lord Voldemort, the mystery gets unraveled.

Harry shows bravery as he has never shown before. (view spoiler)Harry’s bravery is the key point of the novel, without it the novel wouldn’t be as exhilarating and exciting. He is a true Gryffindor.

The novel has a lot of important and surprising turning points. (view spoiler)

Harry’s loyalty to Dumbledore is awe-inspiring and simply wonderful. (view spoiler) The relationships between the characters make the novel so worthwhile. They are realistic; there might be disputes but a strong friendship can overcome anything.
‘‘Dumbledore says people find it far easier to forgive others for being wrong than being right,’’ - Hermione, p.95
‘‘Greatness inspires envy, envy engenders spite, spite spawns lies.’’ - Tom Riddle or as he would love to be called Lord Voldemort, p.415

(view spoiler)
‘‘age is foolish and forgetful when it underestimates youth’’ - Dumbledore, p.528
