Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix by J. K. Rowling        870 pages

This is probably the fifth or sixth time I’ve reread this book.  I love the entire series and reread it regularly.    I’d be surprised to find out that there is anyone that doesn’t know the basic idea of the series, but just in case, here is a brief description.  This is the fifth book in the series and Lord Voldemort has returned.  Harry is waiting for him to make himself known, but he does not and Harry spends a lot of time being considered crazy by the wizarding world.  Meanwhile, the Minister of Magic, Cornelius Fudge, who is afraid that Dumbledore, Headmaster of Hogwarts School, is trying to take over the Ministry, has appointed Dolores Umbridge to represent the Ministry at the School.  This mainly means that Umbridge can interfere at Hogwarts, and basically make students’, especially Harry’s lives difficult.  Almost everyone in the free world has enjoyed these books and I would recommend them to anyone who likes fantasy.
