Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Harry Potter #5)-Book Review

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Harry Potter, #5)There is a door at the end of a silent corridor. And it’s haunting Harry Potter’s dreams. Why else would he be waking in the middle of the night, screaming in terror?

Harry has a lot on his mind for this, his fifth year at Hogwarts: a Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher with a personality like poisoned honey; a big surprise on the Gryffindor Quidditch team; and the looming terror of the Ordinary Wizarding Level exams. But all these things pale next to the growing threat of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named—a threat that neither the magical government nor the authorities at Hogwarts can stop.

As the grasp of darkness tightens, Harry must discover the true depth and strength of his friends, the importance of boundless loyalty, and the shocking price of unbearable sacrifice.

His fate depends on them all.

Only gifs can explain how I am feeling right now.

“Indifference and neglect often do much more damage than outright dislike.”

Officially this series is dark now, I don’t want to suffer but also can’t stop reading, I was deep in a reading slump but this book dragged me back.

I realized while reading this book that I don’t hate Voldemort as much as I do to Umbridge, She is an annoying psycho, I was losing my temper again and again. While watching the movie I thought Harry is just getting rude but after book now I can relate to him and justify each and every action of his.

“Wit beyond measure is man’s greatest treasure.” 

The Plot, twists, and turns are absolutely fantastic. I am glad that I didn’t read this book back when it was coming out, There is no way I could wait for this much for the next one…NO WAY…We get to met Luna and many other new characters, Story is more inclined to the mystery and real-world problem but on the positive side, I didn’t have to suffer Snape that much, Though Umbridge was certainly more hateable then him…We got another past story and I must say, James, Sirius, and Lupin are gems…Okie they were a bit trouble maker but Snape wasn’t also flawless. James is kinda cute though 😁.

“You know, Minister, I disagree with Dumbledore on many counts…but you cannot deny he’s got style…” 

Obviously, He got style…It is the first time we get to watch Dumbledore’s SWAG and yes he got it. Fred and George keep bringing some lightness in the dark story which was fun to read.

I can’t wait to read more about D.A’s progress, There are so many things I loved about this book that If I’ll start to right it is gonna be a HUGE post 😂, So I’ll not.

“Things we lose have a way of coming back to us in the end, if not always in the way we expect.”

    Omg can’t believe we both feel the same on the worst villain.. Umbridge is definitely the most horrible and I hate her the most. This is defiantly where the books get darker but trust me it’s worth keeping going as the stories are the best ever written. Luna is one of my favourite characters ever and my family think I’m like her lol.. I love the marauders so much. You have described the book perfectly and I agree with you totally on the gifs and love the quotes you pickevb😊😊😊

        I’m very dreamy lol and abit loopy but I like that comparison.. Yes she is sweet but I like that she is racenclaw which suggests she is also intelligent which you will see more of in the later books . I love the way you write ❤️

  2. I haven’t been able to get past this book in the series. I read until book 4 because thinking about this book stresses the hell out of me [I can’t deal with that is waiting within this book 😭]

    Also, I think Umbridge is worse than any other villain in this series [except from you know who] >< that woman makes me hate pink with all my heart [even when I love the color].

    This is definitely a difficult book to get through! Umbridge is literally the worse and I find her just as bad as Voldemort because at least he doesn’t work under the guise of being a good person. Ugh. The books are so amazing though ❤️

    1. It was…Agree…Villains disguise as good person are worst…you won’t able to trust anyone after meeting that kind of characters.
