There is a door at the end of a silent corridor. And it's haunting Harry Potter's dreams. Why else would he be waking in the middle of the night, screaming in terror?

Here are just a few things on Harry's mind:

• A Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher with a personality like poisoned honey.

• A venomous, disgruntled house-elf

• Ron as keeper of the Gryffindor Quidditch team

• The looming terror of the end-of-term Ordinary Wizarding Level exams

. . . and of course, the growing threat of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. In the richest installment yet of J. K. Rowling's seven-part story, Harry Potter is faced with the unreliability of the very government of the magical world and the impotence of the authorities at Hogwarts.

Despite this (or perhaps because of it), he finds depth and strength in his friends, beyond what even he knew, boundless loyalty; and unbearable sacrifice.

Though thick runs the plot, listeners will race through these tapes and leave Hogwarts, like Harry, wishing only for the next train back.

This one was great, and there was so much more depth and information than I had gotten from the movie. It was very angsty and dragged just a touch, but I still loved this entry, and the addition of Luna Lovegood was just as great as I thought it would be.

Harry potter is a good book and one of my favourites of all time. I read this book again in a different perspective and it was mind blowing. This book is really great and what it meant to me was that there are many other people in the world special or not.

The story is good! but sadly the ending is very heartbreaking due to someone special's death( this is not exactaly a spoiler)At first I thought the Order is about a phenix, turns out, its completly different! read the book to find out more.

Another year older and even darker than the Goblet of Fire, this book continues to story of the boy who lived. The Dark Lord is back, but the Ministry of Magic refuses to accept it. Not only do they set up a professor in the school to monitor and enforce Ministry law, they also take every chance possible, using their newspaper to defame and slander both Harry Potter and Albus Dumbledore.

This book is more mature than even the fourth book. There is more focus on political influence and the flaws of government. With Fudge abusing his power using the fact that the entire Wizarding World doesn’t want the Dark Lord to be back, this book has many nuances that will be lost on younger audience members.

A great continuation of the series with the prose growing up with the main characters and the audience. There is plenty of angst and confusion, which ramps up the drama. The reader gets to find out things along with the main characters. This is a great and pivotal book in the series that shows off the skill of Rowling’s storytelling ability and just how much improvement she’s made in her prose style.

There were a few answers to questions that were created in the first novel. I appreciated some loose ends being tied up.

Harry witnessed Professor McGonagall walking right past Peeves, who was determinedly loosening a crystal chandelier, and could have sworn he heard her tell the poltergeist out of the corner of her mouth, “it unscrews the other way.”

That's what they should teach us," how girls brains work" it would be more useful than divination anyway!

Umbridge itis

'Dumbledore's Army, Cornelius,' said Dumbledore, still smiling as he waved the list of names before Fudge's face. 'Not Potter's Army. Dumbledore's Army.'

'But--but--'

Understanding blazed suddenly in Fudge's face. He took a horrified step backwards, yelped, and jumped out of the fire again.

SAPPHIREBEAR15 Jun 19, 2012

Harry Potter is spending another horrible summer with his dreadful Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon when a group of evil spirits called Dementors stage an unexpected attack on Harry and his cousin Dudley. After he uses magic to defend himself and Dudley, an act that later gets Harry expelled from Hogwarts, he is visited by a group of wizards and Madeye Moody and the is whisked off to number 12, Grimmauld Place, London. Number 12 is the home of Harry's godfather, Sirius Black, and the headquarters of the Order of the Phoenix. The Order is a group of witches and wizards, led by Hogwarts headmaster Albus Dumbledore, dedicated to fighting the evil Lord Voldemort and his followers. The Order is forced to operate in secrecy, outside of the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Magic, which is headed by the dense and corrupt Cornelius Fudge. Fudge refuses to believe that Lord Voldemort has returned. Harry, who witnessed Voldemort's return the previous June and was tortured and nearly murdered by him, is suffering from nightmares about what has happened to him. He is also angry with those he is close to, especially Ron and Hermione. Harry used magic to fight off the dementors, and since underage wizards are not permitted to use their wands outside of school, he must face a disciplinary hearing at the Ministry. With Dumbledore's help, Harry is cleared by the Wizengamot and permitted to return to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry
