A 86% Extraordinary NotesIt s a transitional book, which holds back its potential, but it adds greatly to its mythos with excellent new characters. I had to re read it I was in such a nostalgic mood.

K. Rowling Jkrowling obviously a reread cries 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 Ron got over his jealousy, the school eventually got behind Harry as a Champion, and good still triumphed over evil Our hero surmounted impossible odds in the Triwizard Tournament and then managed to escape Voldemort, y Is it true that you shouted at Professor Umbridge Yes You called her a liar Yes You told her He Who Must Not Be Named is back Yes Have a biscuit, Potter 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 Umbridge And being able to create such deep anger and loathing in me, with only words , shows again what a fantastic writer Mrs Rowling is. Here are some of my favourite scenes, characters and details 1 Mrs Figg beating up Mundungus and cursing Dudley2 Grimmauld Place and the Order3 Thestrals4 McGonagall vs Umbridge Harry s Career Advice appointment is one of ✓ Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix ✓ 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 Umbridgenever have I hated a fictional character than I hated her I do have to admit, I m curious to see whether she makes any appearances or not For me, this book was stronger for character development than plot Yes, this is a key book for the series, but I felt like most of the book was spent with characters internal issues and development rather than the plot I love how Harry and the crew are dealing with adult issues now, such as relations re read August 2018it had seriously been too long since I read this book I love angsty Harry and all of the crazy drama that this book contains Re read in December 2014 for Harry Christmas To Youok 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 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 mention of Regulus Black near the beginning of this book I ve noticed particularly during this re read that J. K Rowling tends to mention characters a book or two before they will
I finished this book with tears in my eyes and laughter on my lips. Just wow, excellent book It only took me 7 months, but at least i ve FINALLY finished the damn book Video Review
