This review is from: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Book 5) (Hardcover)
Well it seemed like a long wait but oh boy was it worth it! I have just lost a week of my life immersed instead in the life of Harry Potter and all those who have become so familiar to me over the last few years of reading the books.
The action begins right in chapter one, drawing me immediately into a sense of thrill and danger from the very beginning. I find myself wondering if Rowling can possibly keep the adventure and the excitement going throughout a monstrous 766 pages. I needn't have wondered, as the story draws me in deeper I become more and more intrigued and desperate to discover what is going to happen. As I read on I can't help thinking of the 'major character' who is going to die and as the pace of the adventure speeds up I find myself literally on the edge of my seat, heart beating faster, convinced every few lines that 'this is the moment' and at one point crying when it seems that one particular character is about to be 'the one.' Rowling brilliantly keeps me in suspense leaving me helpless to do anything but read and read on until I finally discover who it is to be and, Harry's fate at the hands of Voldemert this time.
Wow! I can say no more.
