5.0 out of 5 stars Its a genius concept!, 30 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Book 5) (Hardcover)
Okay, so I think I've read just about every review on Amazon about this book - people are forgetting the real point which is that J K Rowling has made children want to read again. These are childrens books after all and if it means that they aren't glued to the TV watching some mindless drivel then its a success already. The point is though that they aren't just for kids I'm 18 and I'm an avid fan of this series. I must've read this book at least twelve times since I got it and its fabulous - pure genius. Yes I agree that the ending was a bit of an anti climax but its bound to be. Harry has to get off the train at the end of each year or else the story wouldn't be complete. The book is full of information -too much maybe?- but every time I've read it I've noticed something new that I hadn't noticed before. It's full of new characters and they make this a richer read - bulking out the story, its got to be realistic, the same characters can't just stay the same for 7 books. The story is brilliant, the beginning before he gets to school is long but necessary, and once that is over it is worth it because you appreciate other aspects of the story more. The length is questionable - apparently its longer than the Old Testament - don't know if thats true but who cares. The story is becoming more complex and if they get longer each time I can't imagine how long the 7th one will be. But it doesn't matter because they are great stories, its difficult to write a good book but to write -so far- 5 is a major achievement! Whether you like it or loathe it you can't deny that JK Rowling is a fantastic author who has inspired millions of people to read.
