Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
My honest opinion
Well, it's a wonderful book. It starts to delve into a deeper, darker place that the first four, especially the first two, did not have. The fifth book has the topic of mental (almost) possession where Harry has glimpses into Voldemort's mind. He is terrified, naterally, but also thrilled. He so wants to see what's behind that black door.
It also explores teenage hormones. A funny situation really, Harry's first kiss.
I think it's a well written book for any age though personally, I wouldn't let my eight year old read it. If they can get through it. My ten year old cousin was having trouble getting through the first one, Sorcerer's Stone.
The books, naterally, have a magical appeal to them. I love them for their great storytelling and the characters.
I think anyone should read them, starting of course, with Sorcerer's Stone. They are wonderful books. I know some people are like, 'Oh, Harry Potter. I'm not going toread them,' because they are thinking of them movies. The movies are wonderful in their own. I love them and love watching them but there is a lot missing from the movies that are in the books. Some of that stuff is the stuff I love about the books. Like Hermione's S.P.E.W., Dobby from all but Chamber of Secerts where he's introduced, and little things like that that don't really move the story forward.
I have only read OOTP twice, I think, truth be told. My friend have read it at least four or five times. But, I don't mind, it's all fresh for me, reading it again. And I still love it.
