Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is the fifth novel in the Harry Potter Series. Again, J.K. Rowling did an amazing job of creating this book. This book is one of the most action packed books. The Order is up against the Death Eaters. The Order of the Phoenix are the good guys and the Death Eaters are the antagonists. We get to see how full fledged wizards fight and how the students, Harry Potter and others, go up against them. Also, this is a spoiler, but in the end, Harry Potter loses someone important to him. I definitely recommend this book.
Hmmphhh. This entry in the series is one of the harder for me to read. Harry is dealing with some hardcore PTSD as well as normal teenage hormonal moodiness, which makes him remarkable short tempered and prone to lashing out at the people around him at the slightest provocation. All things considered it is understandable for him to be acting this way. He's dealing with a lot. But it makes him a hard protagonist to follow the POV of, and the situation isn't helped by the way the entire story gangs up on him and further drives him into depression and isolation. That said, his true friends really show their mettle in Order of the Phoenix, and the core Ride or Die group going forward - Ron, Hermione, Ginny, Neville, and Luna- cement their place in the plot in this book.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is my favorite book in the series! It contains the single most legendary chapter in any harry potter book EVER, “The Flight of Fred and George Weasley.” I can’t decide whether it’s the hilarity of the Weasleys, virtually everyone’s silent support of them, or Umbridge’s helpless reaction, but combined, they make for quite the laugh. I enjoy everything else too, especially the tension caused by Professor Umbridge’s presence at Hogwarts. Also, Harry is forced to deal with more stress. He becomes a public figure in this book and must learn to deal with his public image. Overall, this buildup of conflict is perfect. The climax, which is gripping, full of action, and sad, releases the tension and concludes the story on a dark note.
Another AMAZING book by J.K. Rowling! Even though it has yet another heart-breaking death - and maybe the fact that Harry and Dumbledore are considered "crazy" throughout most of the book - it is still a great book!
Harry is in big trouble with the ministry - He used magic, but for self-defense. However, no one will believe him. The magical world deems him a liar. Dumbledore is considered senile. His friends are rebuffing him. And to top it all off, he got a new teacher who is determined to hate him...
This book was very interesting. It talked about Harry in the worst time of his life - a period where the world refuses to believe him. He is alone, except for his two best friends. I really liked this book because it talks about the power of optimism. Harry found ways to find happiness amidst all the gloom - while the wizarding world was crumbling around him. He decides to go against everyone to try and finally prove that he was indeed correct when he said Lord Voldemort was back. However - what will that take?
Spoiler Alert - THIS BOOK IS VERY SAD.
My favorite of the Harry Potter books, I've read this book 4 times. Great read, and a great series in general.
Harry Potter and the Order in Phoenix, the fifth book of the Harry Potter series, follows Harry Potter again and his friends at Hogwarts. We start to see the main villain coming back slowly after disappearing in the past of the fictional world. This book is even bigger than the fourth as there is so much more detail in the plot and twists hit you left and right. You feel like you get closer to the characters even more throughout the book as you learn more about their pasts. I would recommend this book to middle schoolers and high schoolers as it really entraps you in the wizarding world.
It's okayish. I kinda slept halfway through it. My friend actullay said that her parents use the auidobook to put her to sleep!
But, this book is part of a good series. So read it if you'd like to continue with the Harry Potter series.
I find that this is a great Harry Potter story. However, I do find that in parts, it can be a little.. boring almost.
Definitely, however, Umbridge is a horrible character. The story seems to indirectly reflect youths' world sometimes, for example, bullying- Harry was bullied by his cousin, Dudley and his friends, and I noted that this was something that appeared both in the Wizarding World and in the Earth World, people often think that they are better than the other person, and this happened with Umbridge and the Inquisitorial Squad. They thought that they were better than Harry & Harry's friends, just because they were pureblood and Hermione had no magical parentage, and Harry and Ron they have just hated from basically the beginning of the story.
An excellent story, however a little boring at times, but very, very good.
Five stars all the way! I love how exciting Harry Potter is and I have absolutely nothing negative to say.
In the fifth installment of the Harry Potter series we get a look into some of the past resistance movements against Voldemort, and see them begin to reemerge now that he's returned to the wizarding world. While this does take away a little of the childhood magic we experienced in the first three books, and part of the fourth, we're able to see layers and details about Harry's enemy revealed. With a new defense against the dark arts teacher, O.W.L.s just around the corner, and Voldemort on the rise once again, this book is sure to not disappoint.
The most intense and emotional read so far. I can see a lot of topics being challenged here are reflected in real world culture. I think this is my favourite of the series.
Awesome, but it's sad that Harry's godfather, Sirius Black dies. Not going to lie, you kinda hate Bellatrix Lestrange after this.
Order of the Pheonix is my least favourite movie in the Harry Potter series but my favourite book. I recommend this to those who are fans of lengthy reads as the book is 800 pages. 5/5 is my rating because there is nothing I would change about this book. Harry's character development took flight making for an exciting read. Seeing multiple characters coming together in a display of bravery, in the end, gave off the message of friendship and the extremes we go to for the ones we love. JK Rowling often uses this as the theme in the Harry Potter series and I think Order of the Pheonix displays this perfectly. From beginning to end, there was not one part of the book that had me bored! 5/5 stars

I have to say WOW. What a great read, J. K. Rowling really knows how to make you stay engaged and never want to put the book down. This is by far one of my favorite book I have read to date. The way it was written and how I felt as if I was walking with the characters throughout their journey really makes me feel great. I do not regret reading this book at all. This book is so beautifully written that I have not had a single complaint. I love the character development throughout the novels, especially this one. The way Harry Potter has changed in this book is unbelievable he is a lot more courageous by the end of it. My favorite part is towards the end so much happens. I give this a rating of 5/5 stars.

This book is packed with excitement and adventure. It almost feels like you are working beside the main characters, breaking through, putting the puzzle pieces together, there is just not an adventure quite like this one. It’s unlike the seventh book, in the sense that it does not have a lot of adventures, but that was made up by its extensive story. This book is all about story. You can read it over and over again, and still have no idea what’s happening. So you read it again, and again, until eventually, you’ll be lost in it. When I was young, I would go to sleep fantasizing myself as the main character, on this amazing adventure. 4 stars

Order of the Phoenix is an extremely suspenseful and engaging novel, and one of my personal favorites from the Harry Potter series. A continuation from the previous installment of the series, The Goblet of Fire, Order of the Phoenix reveals a lot more information about the characters and their pasts and reveals some surprising truths. Additionally, the characters and the plot are very well written and make for an interesting read. Overall, it's an amazing and pivotal novel that helps set the stage for the upcoming books in the series.
This book is one of my favorite books of the series. I remember as soon as I grabbed it, I couldn’t put it down. This book is filled with so much humor, and emotion, it’s hard to believe that the author was able to do so good on a book. This book is a bit sad, but it is evened out with lots of happiness throughout. I absolutely loved how the author wrote this with so much depth and feeling. This book really prepares for what happens in the next books of the series. It also resolves the problems that rose in the earlier books. I really recommend this book to anyone. And if I could I would give this a 6 out of 5 starts, since its simply that good.
Love love love this book! It's my favorite other than Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I totally recommend this book to EVERYONE!
This is the book where some truth gets discovered and death of close ones of Harry die. But it was so deep and interesting I really liked it anyway!!!
I think this is one of the strongest Harry Potter books that really dives into the plot and the characters' mindsets, and this book sets up the final two books of the series. It gives me chills!
This one was great, and there was so much more depth and information than I had gotten from the movie. It was very angsty and dragged just a touch, but I still loved this entry, and the addition of Luna Lovegood was just as great as I thought it would be.
Harry potter is a good book and one of my favourites of all time. I read this book again in a different perspective and it was mind blowing. This book is really great and what it meant to me was that there are many other people in the world special or not.
