Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger
The novel follows Harry into his fifth year at Hogwarts. It sees the return of characters from the previous novels as the Order of the Phoenix is formed to combat the rising threat of Lord Voldemort. The book also sees Harry take his OWL exam, adding to further stresses as Hogwarts comes under the control of the Ministry of Magic’s representative Dolores Umbridge.
Another great read from Rowling. Again like Goblet of Fire, Rowling changes the plot and moves away from the usual story line as Dumbledore loses control of Hogwarts and Harry is no longer able to play Quidditch. The book also sees the start of the war between Harry and Voldemort, showing a slightly more ‘grown up’ aspect to the Potter novels as there are more sinister events such as murder and torture.
All in all this was another great book, and I can’t wait to start the next book, Half Blood Prince. Like I’ve said in my other reviews, the Harry Potter books are not just for children and if you have seen the films and enjoyed them you should definitely read the books.
