Isn't Dolores Umbridge the worst? She's so awful that her character strains credulity, even for a fantasy YA series like Harry Potter. Nevertheless, JK Rowling manages to hold the story together and deliver another winning entry.

Some think of Order of the Phoenix as Harry Potter and His Angsty Year at School. It's true. Harry's growing up. He's got teenage problems and people just don't understand. Dumbledore ignores him, Umbridge tortures him—literally—and Voldemort wants to kill him. And hardly anybody believes a word he says. So I don't blame Harry for sounding off on Ron and Hermione from time to time.

Book 5 is the longest volume of the series, besting the 2nd longest by over a hundred pages, and Rowling defends each chapter as essential. I agree since everything adds to the richness of the world without sacrificing urgency. Also, if you read carefully enough, you can see the story plots, character arcs and the occasional Easter Egg being set up for books 6 and 7 though only a few of them actually do pay off. With Rowling you get this sense that she's more of a master set decorator than a long-game story planner. There are iconic moments in Phoenix that you think must mean *something* later on (e.g. the veil, Grawp, occlumency), but alas, they are nothing more than window dressing.

Potter fever was on the up when Order of the Phoenix came out back in 2003. JK Rowling was weaving this wondrous, magical tapestry and by then had captured the world's attention.

Another one of J.K.Rowling's great masterpieces in the Harry Potter series. The book shows Harry's 5th year at Hogwarts and the dark side strengthening. It also tells about the prophecy of harry and the Dark Lord.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, the fifth installment in the critically acclaimed series written by J.K. Rowling, introduces the reader to the team of witches and wizards tasked with the job of defeating the newly revived Lord Voldemort and his Death Eater supporters. With familiar faces such as Albus Dumbledore, Remus Lupin, Mad-Eye Moody, Sirius Black, and Severus Snape, the formidable bunch vow to bring an end to the havoc and darkness Voldemort and his advocates have wreaking upon both the magical and muggle world alike. Little do they know, this ongoing battle will cost them years of frantic fighting, and worse, some of their lives. Meanwhile, the Ministry of Magic refuses to believe that Lord Voldemort has returned to his full strength, causing a clash between the two proverbial “good” sides. Rowling also introduces the enthralling back story of the relationship between Severus Snape, Harry’s parents, and a multitude of other prominent characters. This helps explain some of the cryptic references to their pasts throughout the previous titles of the series. The notions of fate and destiny heavily influence this work, drawing upon an imprecise but captivating element of magic: prophesying. Despite vehement belief of its inaccuracy by some characters, readers are challenged to decipher the meaning of this perplexing information in an attempt to gain clues that could potentially unravel the deepest mysteries the series has to offer. With a host of new details for fans to devour, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix offers the perfect balance of plot advancement and thrilling action.

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

Remember, if the time should come when you have to make a choice between what is right, and what is easy, remember what happened to a boy who was good, and kind, and brave, because he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort.

Indifference and neglect often do much more damage than outright dislike …We wizards have mistreated and abused our fellows for too long, and we are now reaping our reward.
