Harry has entered the teenaged angst stage of his altogether quite busy young life. One is not disappointed by the return of the old favourite characters and the emergence of a new varied range of good and evil creatures. The terminology used throughout the novels continues to enlighten the world of HP and as always Rowling manages to hold and entrance you throughout the book. The media hype may have led to disappointment but I have to say my only disappointment was once I had finished reading - as that meant it would be a long while before the next installment. A good read - and the double entendres make it a worthwhile read for the young and old alike!

Harry Potter & The Order of the Phoenix was well worth waiting the time it took to be published. It is a real journey for Harry. He learns a great deal more in this book about his parents and has to come to terms with what he discovers. More than that he has to come to terms with what he learns about himself. It is much darker than the earlier books. The final chapters are brilliant and we see just how much Harry has grown and how much he has to accept about who he is and where he comes from.
There are some fantastic new characters as well as the old favourites.
It really lives up to the Harry hype and personally i cant wait for the next book.

i believe this book is the best in the harry potter series. so much for turning harry into thoroughly unlikeable teenager, i thought the way this book was written portrayed exactly how a 15 year old bot would truly cope with all the lies and secrets. never knowing what everyone els knows about him. for me, this book was gripping, i didn't feel it was too long and i just couldn't put it down, i had read the whole book the day i received it. this book is full of twists and turns and also a great deal of sadness. i for one am glad for the concentration on character building, for me it truly brings the characters to life!

I am writing this review from the point of view of a 13 year old girl. I thought this book was the best of the series yet, along with the fourth book. The themes in the book seem to be set for older readers as Harry is growing up too.
From the fourth book, you realise that people can really die in the book and it is not always a happy ending as it has been in the other books. In this book, Harry has problems at school and with his exams, with Cho and his friends and with Voldemort.
This book is more scarier than the other books and always leaves you wanting to read on. This is my favourite book and I would highly recommend it.

As all of us Harry Potter fans did, I waited with baited breath for the Order of the Phoenix....and did it live up to expectations? Yes in a word! This book focuses on Harry's changing emotions and feelings, maybe a bit too much because it can be quite 'dark' in parts. There aren't as many lighthearted moments in this book compared with previous releases. I suppose I expected the plot of the story to be a bit more intense and it seemed to struggle with finding new twists and turns but nevertheless, a great read! You cannot fault J K Rowlings ability to enthral you from the moment you read the first page. Can't wait for the next one!

J.K. Rowling has shown once again that she has the creative power to sustain this epic story. It's a gripping read. There's plenty of character development: Harry is now a fully-fledged teenaged nightmare, Ginny Weasley is proving to be as resourceful as her brothers, and further layers are added to the Potter family history.
For me, it lacks the variety of book 4. As Harry rages against everyone around him, the tone of the story seems to stay at the same pitch through out. And the surprises weren't as surprising as they've been in other books. That said, OotP is still the best thing I've read since the Goblet of Fire.

This is the best one in the series! Harry Potter has grown up drastically from the last book, the events ending the Goblet of Fire have affected Harry greatly.
In OOTP Harry is angry, angry at the wizarding world who refuse to believe that Lord Voldemort is back. Arrival at Hogwarts does not help, instead Harry finds himself to be baited by the sinister new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher.
Beware Potter fans, the death of a very dear character is so so SOOOO sad. I was in tears reading it - I can't believe J.K killed the person! I suppose we will eventually find out why this character had to die.

When I first read this book - devouring it the first weekend it came out - I was like many other reviewers initially disappointed though delighted that the story continues. Reading it a second time, aloud to my husband, who laughed in all the right places, brought out that there is a lot of humour still in the writing, and that the plot is a lot more intricate than I thought at first. I'm still not sure about the ending but can't bear the long wait till the next book - so a lot of time to re-read this one (and the others) and find more in it with each reading.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix has got to be the best book i've ever read! It left me craving for more. I can not wait to read book 6 im so excited! I was very surprised by the death in the order of the phoenix,how it happened so sudden. It nearly made me cry:( I'm going to miss the person who died. Hopefully the last two books will be just as good or better! J.K rowling is such an amazing writer her stories make me wish it was all real and that i went to Hogwarts. I urge people to read this book it is amazing!

After four days reading this great book,I've found it the best J.K.Rowling wrote so far.The Weasley twins's remarks are funnier than ever,Harry's behaviour has changed a lot whilst enduring rough times at Hogwarts,by trying to entice his fellow students into believing that Voldemort is back and craving for victory against Harry,Dumbledore and all those wizards that protects the "half-breeds" and "mudbloods".
I'm already eager for the sixth book,expecting to find the answers to those questions that were laid by "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix".This book deserves SIX stars out of five.
