There is a door, at the end of a dark, silent corridor, which is haunting Harry Potter in his dreams. Every night he gets a step closer to the mysterious door, and this dream is somehow more terrifying than every other nightmare combined. What will appear behind the door and why does the same dream return every night?
This is the fifth book in the Harry Potter series and, as always, an intriguing year is ahead of Harry as he is due to start the fifth grade at Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Lord Voldemort, or He- who- must- not- be- named, may have arisen once again according to Harry, who claims he has seen him. This creates a rift in the wizarding world between those who believe in the truth about his return, and those who prefer to believe it´s all madness and lies -- just more trouble from Harry Potter. By now, Harry has turned 15 and has entered (?) “the terrible teens” and this is definitely not the same person we got to know in the first book. The little shy boy is gone and instead a teenager with a mood that varies a lot turns up. Everybody in school believes that the “fame- seeking” boy Harry is mad and a new horrific teacher from the ministry of magic has turned up. On top of it all Harry hurls himself into his first romance…
The main characters in the book except for the great Harry Potter himself are:
Ron Weasly, the lousy Gryffindor Quidditch goalkeeper. He has just been made prefect but Ron can’t cope the responsibility. He doesn’t understand girls a bit, but he is a great friend of Harry’s whom he can always count on.
Hermione Granger, is, as Ron always calls her, “a know it all”. She is a very smart girl who is obsessed with the welfare of the house elves. Hermione, together with Ron and Harry, form an adventure seeking team in which they always support each other.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is, as the other Harry Potter books, loved by children and adults alike. The author, J. K. Rowling, describes the plot with a great deal of dialogues, which make the book fairly easy to read - after all, it is a novel written for children. Throughout the book there are plenty of flash backs. This could have ruined the flow, but Rowling has a very professional way of naturally integrating them into the story so you hardly even notice them. The book is narrated from Harry’s perspective, which means you only know what he feels, thinks and dreams. To make you see other people’s thoughts Rowling “paints” lots of facial expressions.
The only thing about this book that bothered me was the fact that Harry really is a “terrible teen”! One moment he is as happy as ever, but then all of a sudden he hates everything. The sensible boy he always has been is gone with the wind. I don’t actually know why this annoys me. A possible explanation could be that the usual righteous role should not, in a fairy tale with certain preset characters (such as the good, the bad, the evil…), be too human. On the other hand Harry is human, and the book is no... Ladda upp arbete
