Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Hey potterheads! Soooo I'm back with another Harry Potter book review!
This is the fifth book in the series and probably the longest one yet.
But don't let the number of pages scare you because the plot is so captivating that you probably would want more.
So, if you have ever wondered why, Voldemort, probably the most powerful wizard of all time, wanted to kill Harry when he was a baby and how he possibly failed to do so;
This book has all your answers!
It pretty much starts with Harry fighting Dementors to save his cousin, Dudley and himself. (Way to go Harry!!)
However, he is accused of performing underage magic and is expelled from Hogwarts.
Next, we see there's a new Defense Against the Dark Arts professor at Hogwarts, sweet poison, Dolores Umbridge.
Spoiler alert: you're gonna hate her.
There's a conflict of opinions on whether volde.. sorry, you-know-who has returned because Harry is the only witness alive and the newspaper, the daily prophet, has chosen to defame the chosen one, calling him a liar and attention seeker.
There are many new faces and terms introduced in this book.
You will learn about occlumency and legilimency, Dumbledore's army and the most important one, the Order of the Phoenix.
When I say, this book is an emotional roller coaster, I'm not exaggerating.
You'll completely agree with me once you finish this book.
The movie doesn't even come close. Trust me.
(Don't get me wrong, the movies are good, but believe me, you're missing out on a LOT if you're not reading this book.)
So that will be all. Take a day off because this will be a longgg read.
If you've run out of reasons to call in sick, just tell your teacher/ boss, you've got the ansel elgort syndrome.
(Okay maybe don't do that)
But just take some time off of your schedule and read this book. You won't regret it!
