Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling

Another great entry in the series. I really appreciate what the author did with this series, the first book is rather simple but the story progresses and grows darker and more complicated with each entry.

Harry is quite annoying in this story but to be honest he’s a young teenager so it’s fairly accurate. We also meet one of the greatest villains I’ve ever read in Umbridge. I think she works so well because we all have probably met somebody like her, somebody so utterly self absorbed and then put in a position of power. It’s a bad combination.

Also Snape. We all know the story with Snape but it doesn’t take away from the fact that he is a bitter, small minded person from the very first book and constantly humiliates Harry because of something that had nothing really to do with him.

Rowling may lack sometimes in the art of writing itself but it’s undeniable that she’s created some great characters, of both the good and bad variety.

5 stars out of 5
