Today I’m reviewing ‘Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix’ by J.K.Rowling
Blurb (from Amazon) :
“‘You are sharing the Dark Lord’s thoughts and emotions. The Headmaster thinks it inadvisable for this to continue. He wishes me to teach you how to close your mind to the Dark Lord.'”
Dark times have come to Hogwarts. After the Dementors’ attack on his cousin Dudley, Harry Potter knows that Voldemort will stop at nothing to find him. There are many who deny the Dark Lord’s return, but Harry is not alone: a secret order gathers at Grimmauld Place to fight against the Dark forces. Harry must allow Professor Snape to teach him how to protect himself from Voldemort’s savage assaults on his mind. But they are growing stronger by the day and Harry is running out of time …
Did I like it?
It’s getting darker. But there’s still ‘hope’.
What I didn’t like
I still don’t get why Harry can’t trust Dumbledore 100%. Why none of the members of the order tells Harry how to safely communicate with them. Not even his godfather. Nor the Weasley parents. Neither do I get why there are the offspring of Death eaters at Hogwarts. Who can do whatever they want. Why Harry gets tortured by a member of the ministry (who became a teacher at Hogwarts)? Why Dumbledore accepts Umbridge as a teacher at all?
Would I recommend it?
I guess a copy-paste of my remarks to the 4 volumes before should be enough. 17.5 out of 20 points
