Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J. K. Rowling

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J. K. Rowling

I lied about the Chamber of Secrets. This is  the Harry Potter book that I absolutely hate.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

In this book, from the very beginning, Harry acts like a spoilt little child. Like he needs to be the center of the universe. Of course, he is used to being the center of the universe, but it seems like he has lost that stability he had in the previous books.

There are only a very few things in this books that make things better. Like the way all the professors stand against Umbridge, discreetly. Or when not so discreetly, professor McGonagall stood toe to toe with her.

Of course, the death towards the end of the book wasn’t making amends, in my eyes.

But at least, we got a few explanations. As always, we know that Dumbledore has many aces up his sleeve, but it will take two more books to understand everything.

This book infuriates me, more than any pther book in the series. But I still see why it should have been that way.

Except why Harry was so stupid that year….. I mean, your godfather gifts you something but you don’t open it first chance you get???

As I said….. infuriating!

One more book closer to the end of my reread.

One more book closer to the script that got out a while ago.

And undoubtedly Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is one of the biggest books I’ve ever read!

About the Book:

"'You are sharing the Dark Lord's thoughts and emotions. The Headmaster thinks it inadvisable for this to continue. He wishes me to teach you how to close your mind to the Dark Lord.'"

Dark times have come to Hogwarts. After the Dementors' attack on his cousin Dudley, Harry Potter knows that Voldemort will stop at nothing to find him. There are many who deny the Dark Lord's return, but Harry is not alone: a secret order gathers at Grimmauld Place to fight against the Dark forces. Harry must allow Professor Snape to teach him how to protect himself from Voldemort's savage assaults on his mind. But they are growing stronger by the day and Harry is running out of time....

About J.K. Rowling

Joanne Rowling was born in July 1965 at Yate General Hospital in England and grew up in Chepstow, Gwent where she went to Wyedean Comprehensive. Although she writes under the pen name J.K. Rowling, pronounced like rolling, her name when her first Harry Potter book was published was simply Joanne Rowling. Anticipating that the target audience of young boys might not want to read a book written by a woman, her publishers demanded that she use two initials, rather than her full name. As she had no middle name, she chose K as the second initial of her pen name, from her paternal grandmother Kathleen Ada Bulgen Rowling

As well as an OBE for services to children’s literature, J.K. Rowling is the recipient of numerous awards and honorary degrees including the Prince of Asturias Award for Concord, France’s Légion d’Honneur, and the Hans Christian Andersen Literature Award, and she has been a Commencement Speaker at Harvard University USA. She supports a wide number of charitable causes through her charitable trust Volant, and is the founder of Lumos, a charity working to transform the lives of disadvantaged children.

In 2012, J.K. Rowling published her first novel for adults, The Casual Vacancy (Little Brown), which has now been published in 44 languages.

J.K. Rowling has also written The Cuckoo's Calling (Little Brown), her first crime novel under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, which was published in 2013 and is to be translated into 37 languages.   A second Robert Galbraith novel is due to be published in 2014.
