Dumbledore lowered his hands and surveyed Harry through his half-moon glasses. ‘It is time,’ he said, ‘for me to tell you what I should have told you five years ago, Harry.  Please sit down.  I am going to tell you everything.’

Harry Potter is about to start his fifth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.  He is desperate to get back to school and find out why his friends Ron and Hermione have been so secretive all summer.  However, what Harry is about to discover in his new year at Hogwarts will turn his world upside down…

Comments on: "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix – J.K. Rowling" (38)

  1. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is the fifth book in the series by J.K Rowling. Harry is attending Hogwarts again and is in his fifth year. During this year, Dumbledore leaves the school and Professor Umbridge is reappointed as Headmistress of the school. Umbridge is stern and mean to almost all of the students, especially muggles. While teaching at Hogwarts she made the rule of No Magic Allowed so Harry, Hermione and Ron decide to start an ‘army’ called Dumbledore’s Army, in this group Harry teaches students magic.

    This book is absolutely amazing and the above is just the start of the book. I give it 9/10

  2. Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix is the fifth book in the series and is very enjoyable. If you are interested in fantasy stories than I would definitely recommend this book. This book is action packed and once you begin reading this book, you will not want to put it down. I like this book as it is a bit different to all of the other Harry Potter books but is still just as good. I have so many favourite parts in this book, but if I would have to pick one, I would definitely choose the end. This book is quite long so I would recommend this book to anybody over the age of 10 and I would rate this book 9.5/10.

  3. This is Harry Potters fifth year at Hogwarts and it is defiantly more thrilling.
    The plot for the story quickly escalates and is more thrilling than ever. This story gives you a more precise insight into what the wizarding world is like, with the ministry of magic and jobs and everything. This book has a lot of action and mystery and it all comes together brilliantly.
    The characters in the book evolve and you see them become more independent and head strong. As always they are learning new spells and they have their fist proper duel with the Death Eaters, which was very exciting!
    The book flows with all the others and you find out more clues and secrets about Harry and Voldemort that will shock you and you might find there could be a few tears!
    This book is the best book ever so I rate it 10/10

    This Harry potter is one of my favourites out of the 7 books. In this book is a lot about the minerstry of magic, the new professor of the school, his secret class in the room of requierment and his dreams. A lot of terrible things happen and the end is a twist. I think that this book is better than the movie because books are more descriptive than movies.

Their is nothing that i don’t like about this book. its perfect.

    I love this book so much!!!!!!!!!!!! It is so fantabulous and anyone who knows me knows I’m obsessed with heaps of books and the Harry potter series is one of the ones I don’t stop talking about. I think this book is really mysteries and annoying because dumbledore won’t tell Harry anything and he has to take occlumency lessons with stupid snape. My favourite character is definitely Luna because my friends say I’m a bit like her and I agree because we both don’t care want anyone thinks. I especially loved D.A and how they used gallons to organise the meetings but I hated the end I cried and wanted to destroy the book but it was from the library. I rate this a 9/10.

    Harry Potter is literally my favourite book ever. I have now read the series 3 times! I especially like the Order of the Phoenix because of Dumbledores Army! I love the fact that they go behind the batty old Umbridges back and start learning defence against the dark arts and preparing themselves for whats waiting out there for them. It made me cry when they were at the Ministry of Magic and Bellatrix Lestrange and Sirius Black were duelling then Sirius Black dies I swear it was the saddest part of the book. But I still love the books and cant wait for the rest of the series.

    I loved this book and it is one of my favourites in the Harry Potter series and I have read it about a million times. I love how Harry seems to have grown up and is really understanding the magic world and this is shown through him not asking as many questions about what everything is. I love how it’s a serious book and everyone is serious in it but there is still enough room for it to also be funny. I love the courage that everyone really begins to show and I love the idea of Dumbledore’s Army. Dumbledore’s Army is probably something I would do and I think it was a really great way to bring all the characters together. I love how every little issue still relates to the big issue and every decision comes back to either reward them or haunt them. This book is amazingly flawless. I give this book a 10/10.

    Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is the 5th book in the Harry Potter series. I love this book, as it is full of mystery. In the Order of the Phoenix Harry Potter is starting his fifth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, alongside his 2 best friends Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley. The Ministry of Magic is denying Voldemort’s return to power, and refuses to believe Harry and Professor Dumbledore. They place a particularly nasty woman at Hogwarts called Dolores Umbridge to watch over Harry and Dumbledore and report back to Cornelius Fudge, Minister for Magic. Umbridge is horrible to Harry, and sometimes I feel like I hate her more than Voldemort. She is so sickly sweet it makes me sick. Harry, Ron and Hermione form and organisation they call ‘Dumbledore’s Army’. My favourite characters in the book still stand to be Ron and Hermione! Hermione, because she is so inspirational and clever. Ron, because he is so funny and is so clueless sometimes it’s funny. I am going to be reading this to my brother after we finish the Goblet of Fire (the fourth book). I would recommend this book to 10+, because like the fourth one, it is quite dark. I would rater this book 10 out of 10, okay, it my be sad at times, and in some chapters you want to scream and shout at Dolores Umbridge and Cornelius Fudge, but I can assure you, once you start this book, you won’t be able to put it down.

  11. ‘Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix’ is an intriguing book just like all the Harry Potter books. I really enjoyed reading this book because it never failed to get boring or never allowed me to lose interest. It supplies the reader with constant plot twists and new information to process such as why Dumbledore is ignoring Harry and why Harry is having dreams/visions involving voldemort. Like the previous four books you come to love the characters all over again and develop a hate for professor Umbridge and love the defiance of the students for creating the DA. My favourite part of the book is how Harry finally defeats umbridge which you are hoping for throughout the entire book. My least favourite part of the book is when sirius dies due to he is the last person that resembles his family and he loses him as well. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a bit of adventure in a book and just has a love for Harry Potter!

    I really liked this book because it showed the start of Voldemort coming back. Also I think that this is my favourite Harry Potter book out of the whole series. My favourite part of the book was when Umbridge got tricked by Dumbledore’s Army. My favourite character in this book was Professor McGonagall because she stood up to Umbridge about the why she is treating her students. I relate to Hermione because all she wants to do is create a club to practise magic to defeat Voldemort. My favourite part in the book is when Harry is practising with Snape to use Oculensy. Thats my favourite part because when he uses it he sees Snapes past and he sees his dad. This book is amazing and there is nothing I would change. I would recommend this book to young kids who love magic and fantasy, also theres a bit of romance in here.

    “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” is not my favourite Harry Potter book or movie. I never understood what was going on in the film or book, or why Harry had grown like an extra 2 feet in one year or why his hair was so short in the movie ;D but aside from that I loved Serius Black. He was so friendly and cool and my brothers loves him too. I saw the movie before I read the book because I could barely remember anything that happened in it, so I started reading the book about a year ago to try and understand it more but it was so long and I couldn’t get through the first few chapters. I so love Harry Potter, though this movie wasn’t one my favourites. I rate this one a 8/10

  15. Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix
    The Order of the Phenix was a really sad story for me. I falt like Harry didn’t have anyone that he could turn to, except his Godfather Sirius Black who ends up being killed by his cousin Bellatrix Lestrange. I really didn’t like how Dumbledore ignored Harry for the whole year but it did raise may suspicions about why he was doing that and what was the meaning behind it. My favourite part was when Fred and George Weasley make their flight for freedom and set off about 100 fireworks while they are at it. This means that my favourite characters would have to be Fred and George simply because of their funniness and constant trying to annoy Professor Umbridge as much as possible. I would rate this book a 9.5/10 because I especially love the storyline and I believe that most people over the age of 13 would find it funny, scary and witty.

  17. I really enjoyed this book because I liked how it could take you to another place and make you imagine a world of magic and spells. My favourite part of this book is when Harry is training a group of students who call themselves ‘Dumbledore’s Army’. I really enjoyed this part because it made me feel hopeful and I liked hearing about the different kinds of spells and how to cast them. My favourite character in this book would have to be Ron because I think he is funny and really nice, I like how he stands up for Harry even when everyone else thinks he’s a liar. I personally don’t feel as though I can relate to any of the characters in this book but I would love to be able to go to a magical school like Hogwarts. I don’t really have a least favourite part of this book but if I could change one thing I would make harry less angry because it really annoyed me how harry would take all his problems out on the people that are trying to help him. I would definitely recommend this book to others because it takes you to another world and although it is long it is still worth it. I would recommend this book to people that enjoy fantasy and the wonders of magic.

    This book was really good!! It wasn’t one of my favourites, but I still enjoyed it a lot. Harry, once again is put into danger from lord Voldemort. You meet lots of new people in this book, who seem important in the end… You meet a secret group called the Order Of The Phenix and it is a group of people, who try to stop Voldemort from rising to his full strength again. It is a very nail biting book and you get hooked just like the rest of the series. I love this book along with the rest 🙂
    I rate it 8/10 and for 8+ Because it can be a bit hard to understand. 🙂

    This is the fifth book of the “Harry Potter” series and is very good. At first I was unsure about the Harry Potter books because I have seen people with them and I thought they would be way too big and really boring, but of course I was very wrong because I am now absolutely in loooove with the Harry Potter series and cannot believe I ever thought they would be boring. My favourite character is Luna because she is very quirky and out there. I would recommend this book to boys or girls 12 and up. 😀

    Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is the fifth book in this thrilling series. All the Harry Potter books are great but this book is one of the best. I love the adventure of the book as it is not just set in Hogwarts. It opens you to a whole new bunch of people and a part of the castle that we have never heard about. I found Professor Dolores Umbridge mean and annoying. Professor Umbridge begins to set a new set of rules, taking charge of the school. My favourite part is when they have the DA meetings in the room of requirement. JK Rowling describes these meetings very well and it is very magical. I would recommend this book for anyone who enjoys the Harry Potter series and of course fantasy. This book is amazing!

    This is my favourite Harry Potter book, mainly because of the characters. With Luna being introduced and Ginny having a lot to do with the book, the other characters act differently and speak differently. Hermione and Luna are constantly arguing over what’s real and what isn’t and Cho and Harry always have something going on. My favourite parts are the parts that involve Dumbledore’s Army, because the characters are really funny in those scenes in the book. McGonagall’s attitude towards Umbridge is really different to her attitude in the previous books, as she isn’t stern, but a little more funny. The characters in this book make it definitely worth reading.

This book is fantastic because I think that the book is really interesting and you never know what will happen next! It would be one of my favourite book is the series when I read it. It was so hard to put down! I loved it. My favourite part in the book by far is when Dumbledore and Voldemort have a huge battle at the very end of the book. My favourite character in the book would be Luna Lovegood because she is really funny and she does not care what people think or say about her. My least favourite character in the book would be Dolores Umbridge because she looks like she would be a nice character but really she is a very mean one. This book is thrilling and interesting because you never know what will happen next. I would recommend this book ages 10 + because the book is really long and it takes a while to read. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone who loves the Harry Potter books. Also you should read the books before watching the movie and to read the books in order because if you do not then you will not know what has happened. Read this great book.

    This is one of my all time favourite book and its not hard to see why, I love the part when there in the department of of Mysteries J.K Rowling describes it so well and its so intense and exciting just reading it. My favourite character is Sirius, he is so kind and such a loving man, i really feel the connection between him and Harry and how special he is to harry. I felt like Harry had finally grown up in this movie, not that he was immature in the others just that this war between voldermort had now gotten serious. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone and everyone Harry Potter is an all time favourite and always will be.

    This has to be my all time favourite book!
    This is definitely the best Harry Potter book, no doubts about it!
    This book is about Harry’s struggle with finding and accepting who he is in the wizarding world, and when Cornelius decides to step in and place Dolores ‘Senior Undersecretary to the Minister’ Umbridge in Hogwarts to make sure everything is running as the ministry wants it, Harry finds himself under a lot of pressure and having a lot of expectations weighing down on him.
    While Umbridge is wreaking havoc in and around the school grounds by putting new rules in place, Harry is making it his business to break as many as possible, mainly by running the ‘D.A’, Dumbledore’s Army, right under Umbridge’s nose.
    Here he teaches other young witches and wizards Defence against the Dark Arts, as Umbridge has destroyed this subject in school.
    This is a hugely thrilling book, with little twists and turns everywhere that you won’t expect!
    READ THIS BOOOOOOOOOK!

The ministry of magic try and take over Hogwarts but behind there backs harry starts Dumbledores army and teaches the students magic. I really did not like the girl who took over from Dumbledore and became in charge of the school, thats why my favourite part is were they go into the woods and the horse people take her away. I think Harry,Ron and Hermine make a great team and i love all the books so much.

    Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix is the fifth book in the infamous Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. This book revolves around the Ministry of Magic’s attempted infiltration of Hogwarts after Dumbledore’s claims of Voldemort’s return to power are dismissed by Cornelius Fudge; the Minister for Magic. This book also focuses on the Ministry’s change of heart as they begin to turn the wizarding world against Harry and Dumbledore using the Daily Prophet. There are many secrets and events at the end of the book that will keep you on the edge of your seat, and anxiously reading to find out what happens next. This book shows Harry for the first time as a real leader, a fearless person who his friends and peers look up to. I loved this book and would recommend it to everyone!

    Harry Potter and the order of the Pheonix is a fantastic book. Harry has a tough year trying to do well at school get good grades and deal with the stress of Voldermort coming back. After an attack on Harry by dementors he has been accused of using magic outside of school. He has to deal with the new defence against the dark arts and try to get everyone to learn defensive skills. The fifth book of the magnificent series Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix sums up some mysteries of the books so far but sets new ones that will yet be resolved. A master piece in it’s own way I would recommened this book to anyone who wants to read a long series or is looking to see what happens next in the Harry Potter books.

  35. This is the fifth book in the Harry Potter series by J.K.Rowling. I believe that Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is not the best book in the series, but still a great book. It has sad times, funny times and, like all Harry Potter books, scary times. It is a great read for those who enjoy dramatic books, action and fantasy. Although it is not J.K.Rowling’s best novel, but certainly makes you intrigued and leaves you wishing that Harry Potter is real! I give it 4/5 because, unfortunately, it just wasn’t the best book ever, but nevertheless, a great book 😉

  36. This is one of my favourite books in the series because of all the action and humour. My favourite part was when Harry wins the cup because he had the hardest task with the dragon and had other complications with the other tasks that had to be completed. My favourite character is Harry because in this book/film he has to be able to adapt to the older people that he’s against and has harder challenges. The least favourite part was when Cedric dies because it’s sad and that’s one of the things i would change i would make that Cedric survives, and I would also change that Hermione and Ron went together not the ball instead of Victor. I would recommend this and people who love action/drama and humour would like this book a lot.

    It was an Awesome book. I liked it because it was different to all the other books. And it was soooooo good I couldn’t change it one bit. Harry would have to be my favourite and sorry but I can’t really relate to him at all. I would give this book a 50 out of 50 and I would recommend this to 12 to 50 year olds. And I loved all of the “Order” and think that it was cleverly made!!!!!!!!!!!!!
