Book Review: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Spread the love

I started reading this book. I never made it all the way through. It’s interesting. I didn’t remember a lot of what I read… nor do I remember watching the movie. What the heck? I remember Professor Umbridge and I hate Professor Umbridge, but… oy! I couldn’t even remember watching this movie. Hubby would say, oh yeah, or this and that… but not me.

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

Harry Potter is due to start his fifth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. His best friends Ron and Hermione have been very secretive all summer and he is desperate to get back to school and find out what has been going on. However, what Harry discovers is far more devastating than he could ever have expected…

Suspense, secrets, and thrilling action from the pen of J.K. Rowling ensure an electrifying adventure that is impossible to put down.


The sweet little façade of Professor Umbridge was so frustrating. I’m not sure how Harry was able to control himself. I’d lose my cool. So yeah. She’s a horrible villain and I can’t stand that they let her have the power she did.

The lady who played her in the movie played the part well. But the book made her an even more frustrating character. Oh my gosh. 

While we’re on homeschooling right now, we’re still doing our at least 30 minutes of reading a day. I’ve even been recording it on her school log. This homeschool thing is interesting. We finished this fairly quickly, especially being a longer book. These books get longer and longer to the point that the 7th book was made into 2 movies. Too much to cover in just one movie.
