Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
So, I finished the book night before last.
This one started out a little different than the rest of the Harry books. It moved a little slower than I liked. They had a lot to explain but I think that we could have done without the pages of cleaning up Sirius’s house and whatnot.
Harry’s character was MUCH more… angry and moody. I didn’t like that at all. I mean, yeah, he’s had a tough life but it made it hard to sympathize with him when he’s in such a foul mood all the time.
Other than those two aspects I liked the book. The ending where Dumbledor explains to Harry why he didn’t tell him of the prophesy from the very beginning explains a lot. And also why he was so adament about keeping Trewlany there and why she was so scared to leave. It will be interesting to see where they go from here with Harry now knowing that either he is going to kill Voldermort or vise-versa. Will he seek V. out? Will he let V. come to him? Will anybody else close to Harry have to die in the process? I also think that Rowling is not done with Luna. I have a feeling she will play an important role somewhere down the line.
