Harry Potter Disa

Thought I was dead, eh? Well, you can't get rid of me that easily. I'm back and I'm here to talk today about the most recent addition to the Harry Potter lineage.

Almost 900 pages long in the North American version of this book, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is a hefty read for any Harry Potter fan of any age, although many have found it hard to put down (including myself) and had finished reading it before the end of its release weekend.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix covers Harry's 5th year of school at the Hogwarts school of wizardry and witchcraft. After the shocking end to book 4 of the series, we find that Harry has lost a good bit of his once upbeat personality as he takes on new responsibilities and tries to deal with the loss of a classmate, crimes he was not responsible for, a new teacher at school, a potential girlfriend, OWL tests, and more, not to mention that the one who had killed his parents is now back in growing force as the public remains ignorant of it all. How is a boy to keep good grades with all that going on? I'd be a bit ticked off at the world too if I had to deal with all that at such a young age.

Anyways, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is a great read and I highly recommend it. I'll warn you though, as Harry is getting older, he is having to deal with more mature themes and issues. It's not much of a secret, but someone does die in this book, although I won't say who. In any case, J.K. Rowling has outdone herself with this novel and I can't wait for book 6. Any disappointments that I had from book 4 were blown away by book 5. I got the book on the night that it came out and I had it finished in under 24 hours. It is almost impossible to put down ^_^
