Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by JK Rowling

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by JK Rowling

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by JK Rowling was my least favorite book in the Harry Potter series. I say was because after reading this book again I have to say that I don’t find it as bad as I usually do. This time around I found that I didn’t focus on Harry’s childish martyr-ism and instead just read the book to enjoy the book.

The tension throughout Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is just ridiculous. I find that the further I get into this series re-read the more I seem to find that I have forgotten what actually happened versus what happened in the movies. I have to say that it was a lot of fun to relearn all the nooks and crannies of this book again! I can’t put my finger on exactly what changed my opinion of this book but I do know that I’m glad to have planned this re-read simply for the fact that I’m enjoying it more than I did the previous times.

In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, the series took a darker turn. In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Rowling starts doling out the sucker punches. Not once, but twice at the end of a book where I already knew what was coming, I was in tears. Not the kind where my eyes gently filled with tears and a single one slid down my face. Oh no, it was messy and unattractive. I knew this hurt was coming and I was still broken. I’m very much looking forward to the next book!
