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

I cried like a little baby. J.K. Rowling really starts taking the series down a darker road in this book. She is so talented at character development, and it really shines in this book. Here, Harry is 15 years old, and for most of the book, he’s whiny and self-centered, just like a typical teenager. I also adore Dumbledore’s role in this book–his conversation at the end with Harry put me to tears. Rowling did an amazing job with the character of Umbridge…never have I hated a fictional character more than I hated her.

Love is at once more wonderful and more terrible than death, than human intelligence, than the forces of nature.

I do have to admit, I’m curious to see whether she makes any more appearances or not. For me, this book was stronger for character development than plot. Yes, this is a key book for the series, but I felt like most of the book was spent with characters’ internal issues and development rather than the plot. I love how Harry and the crew are dealing with more adult issues now, such as relationships and death. As with all of her books, I have a really difficult time putting these books down, but especially within the last 100 pages, I physically could not separate the book from my hands. Overall, another outstanding addition from J.K. Rowling.
