Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix
By: J.K. Rowling
A Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher with a personality like poison honey. The looming terror of the end-of-term Ordinary Wizarding Level exam. The door at the end of the silent corridor that haunts Harry in his every night dream. Harry’s got SO much to worry about! Oh, and don’t forget the growing threat of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named.
In Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix, Harry Potter attends his fifth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. This year, their new Defense against the Dark Arts teacher, Professor Umbridge, who is sent by the Ministry of Magic to take control of Hogwarts. This Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher seems not to be teaching anything but letting them take notes, Harry knows that the Dark Lord is back, he’s got to do something to guard the school against He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. Hermione came up with an epic idea that would definitely teach themselves some Defense Against the Dark Arts knowledge, oh, and also help themselves pass their O.W.L. exam at the end of the year. Meanwhile, in Harry’s dream, a door at the end of the silent corridor is haunting him, has this repeating dream got anything to do with the Order of Phoenix or the Dark Lord? Is he in danger? Will he come face to face with the Dark Lord this time?
I think that Fred and George Weasley are definitely rebellious. At the beginning of the series, it was mentioned in the book that they’ve got a whole box of detention record all to themselves, and throughout the series, lots of things proved that. This year, Professor Umbridge, the teacher that favors the Slytherins, are going against the Weasley twins. I’m sure that they’ll get away from her, but how? Will they get to start their own joke shop as they have wished? Or will they get stuck in detention with Professor Umbridge every day?
I recommend this book, or the whole Harry Potter series, to people who love fantasy and mystery novels. Things mentioned in the book are magical, and somehow connected to other things, you’ll have to guess along the way. At the moment you figure something, you would want to jump into the book and tell the others, this kind of excitement would make you want to read on. I would rate this book a 10/10 because I love magical things and mystery solving. The Harry Potter series is a series that I found the most enjoyable to read, hope you enjoy it!
