Author: J.K. Rowling

Pages: 870
Published: 2003
Format: audiobook

The fifth installment of the Harry Potter series, starts off like most of them – Harry is suffering in muggleland with his aunt, uncle and cousin. He’s completely miserable and would do anything to escape and be with his friends, but not at the cost of being kicked out of Hogwarts, as he soon finds himself.

Harry finds himself targeted by death eaters and dementors, only to find there is a secret group of wizards who were created to keep Harry safe from “you-know-who”. Harry and his friends find themselves among the order of the phoenix, working to find a solution, while things at Hogwarts take a turn for the worse. A new teacher is appointed for the Defense Against the Dark Arts, and soon everyone is threatened by her ways, including Dumbledore. New rules are enforced and everyone has to learn to live with the adjustments and punishments.

This book was very interesting, incorporated a lot of new information and brought the story even further in with the introduction of new elements and the growing strength of our hated villain. I’m looking forward to starting book 6 and finishing out the series this year, along with comparing it with the films.
