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.

Thick...thick...thick.... boring...boring...ZZZZZZZZZ
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.

SAPPHIREBEAR15 Jun 19, 2012

Harry Potter is spending another horrible summer with his dreadful Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon when a group of evil spirits called Dementors stage an unexpected attack on Harry and his cousin Dudley. After he uses magic to defend himself and Dudley, an act that later gets Harry expelled from Hogwarts, he is visited by a group of wizards and Madeye Moody and the is whisked off to number 12, Grimmauld Place, London. Number 12 is the home of Harry's godfather, Sirius Black, and the headquarters of the Order of the Phoenix. The Order is a group of witches and wizards, led by Hogwarts headmaster Albus Dumbledore, dedicated to fighting the evil Lord Voldemort and his followers. The Order is forced to operate in secrecy, outside of the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Magic, which is headed by the dense and corrupt Cornelius Fudge. Fudge refuses to believe that Lord Voldemort has returned. Harry, who witnessed Voldemort's return the previous June and was tortured and nearly murdered by him, is suffering from nightmares about what has happened to him. He is also angry with those he is close to, especially Ron and Hermione. Harry used magic to fight off the dementors, and since underage wizards are not permitted to use their wands outside of school, he must face a disciplinary hearing at the Ministry. With Dumbledore's help, Harry is cleared by the Wizengamot and permitted to return to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry
