Don't read this if you have not read Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix unless you don't care if anything gets spilled to you before you read it.


So, what do you all think of the new book? I'm a humungous fan of Harry Potter but I was kind of disappointed. But that is due to the fact that Sirius died, he was like my favorite character. Though I do love Snape now! But still Sirius dying really upset me. I cried....

I didn't like it that much. The writing style took a turn for the worse and really let me down. Harry became a bastard, always yelling at his friends and just about everyone in general. Ron became a sort of comic-relief idiot. Hermione was not bad, though.

For my HP in general has been going downhill with each volume. I still read 'em because they can still be amusing at times. And they keep getting bigger... o.o Order of the Phoenix was like what 800 pages? How long's the next one gonna be?

But the books do get kids to read which is a good thing

Actually, to me the books keep getting better. The last one was okay, but I know it could have been better. I was very sad that Sirius died, too. I'm just going to pretend that he didn't really die and he'll come back in one of the next books.

It does seem that Harry's turned girl and is PMSing. after all, how else you could you explain his rampages?


I also cried when Sirius died, mostly because my friend is obsessed with him.

thats funny...pmsing....

alright...i really enjoyed this book...like i really enjoyed most of the books...(the first one wasn't as great as the rest cause i guess it was the intro)....

anywayz....i liked how harry flipped out on people...i was laughing at the end when he flipped out on dumbledore and dumbledore was just like....sure go ahead and break my possessions...i have to many....

ugh...that bitch though...what was her name...the one that harry liked...i didn't like her....always crying and crap...that got stupid....

um....i wasn't really upset when sirius died....well...it was a shock...but i guess it gave the story a more darker edge...which i actually wanted...but thats just me...

That damn house elf...it was all his fault....also...the way dumbledore acted in the book was kinda strange...

to me...i think all the books (cept the first one) are great....and we are getting a lot of questions answered....

alright...if ya want to yell at me cause i didn't cry when sirius died go ahead...it just didn't hit me as hard as a lot of people... Smile

Eh, I don't blame you for not crying. Not everyone's that sensitive :P

Cho Chang? Wasn't she Harry's crush? Man, I hate that chick, too. She's such a whimp. I think Ron should die and Harry should get with Hermione, but that's just my opinion. I personally think Ron's an annoying kid who always overreacting. As for Harry being mean, why blame him? I'd be the same way. He just lost the one person that he really had left in this world, how else COULD he react? I also agree that Dumbledore was acting really strange. I know one thing for sure.. I'm going to be standing there at midnight to get the next book.

cho chang=crying son of a bitch

jeez...i hated her Grr!

anywayz...i like ron...he's like my favorite character...and i think hermoine and ron will end up together...just my opinion....

Harry end up with whom?....hmmm....dun know....

thing i forgot to mention in my other comment was that i like how rowling is putting reallity emotions into harry and ron and etc....like how harry reacted to sirius's death...(though i laughed histerically during his little tantrum) it was real....not like some kinda fairy tale where the main character is the best person at everything and always does everything right and blah blah blah...u get what i mean?.....

well....thats all for now....

I thought it was an execelletn book, no doubt about it. I like how it gets darker with each book, and that the plot thickens...

Ugh... I hated, hated, HATED Professor Umbridge! God... that woman is THE definition of a bitch.

The part about Dudley starting to smoke didn't surprise me. I never really liked the pudgy brat anyway.

Cho Chang got on my nerves everynow and then, but I had to remember that she had lost Cedric in the Goblet of Fire, and I too would also be sad about the loss of a loved one. She is just a "so-so" character with me.

I like the thought of Harry rejecting his destiny so to speak, and becoming angrier. It makes for a much deeper hero than in the other books I have read. Hermione was as charming as always, and Ron was... well... Ron-ish. ^^;;; (I think that Harry and Hermione should get together.)

I liked Sirius, he was very cool. But alas, he died. But he died to protect his god-child. And I think that is very noble of him.

Just my two cents.

Like shadow_of_darkness, I was really happy when I saw the length, but then it really let me down. I'd read all the other books multiple times, read all of JK's interviews, even surfed the web for book 5 rumours. But then...mleh. It was like expecting a feast and then being served a crust of bread. A stale, moldy crust. The characters didn't act like themselves, the plot had holes, and he...*sob*...DIED!! ::runs away to wail::

hmm..... not one of my favorite HP books but not one of my least favorite either.

Okay for all of you who are pissed of for Harry going ballistic all the time you dont know the character. Harry deals with a lot im suprised he hadn't gone ballistic sooner! he is a teenager and he has more pressure more stress than 20 average people not to mention all the losses hes been through. the whole cedric dying must have finally broken through his mask. I would have been angry if he was still as happy and innocent as in the first book

Dumbledore.....yes he was very strange......but i liked how he screwed up becuase lets face it Dumbledore was perfect! but now hes human so we wont take everything dumbledore says for granted like what if dumbledore misunderstood the prophesy and all along it really is neiville and he ends up killing voldemort in the last book....that would be interesting....Harry might even actually end up dying! Sad i would not be happy
Sirius is depressing now harry needs a new father figure...Lupin?Moody?Dumbledore?Mr. Weasley?....maybe even SNAPE???!?!?!?!?!!? WTF?

I loved the 5th book. I happened to be in London on the release date and there were many people lined up at every shop to get one. I like the new Harry, he's much more believable. I mean yeah I can understand him being the Griffindor kid, savior of the wizarding world and all, but I mean come on he's only 16/17? Do you really expect a kid who witnesed the death of a good friend to recover if he's been secluded and cut of from any kind of positive company to be normal or real cheerful after that.

I loved Sirius too, I think it's wrong that she killed him off, yet I also wonder if he's really dead. I hope he's not it's... it's just not right without him I mean who does Harry have now? No one.

BTW are any of you offened by slash fics? I found a really good one on www.fanfiction.net that takes place after the 5th book. I"ve become addicted to it myself, but it totally branches off from what JK is probably going for. Also you get an insight to certain characters and how I think they should really be like. If you'd like the name of the story let me know.

Yeah, I have nothing against the new Harry. I just hate it when authors change a character's personality in the middle of the series. It reminds me of the third book in Tamora Pierce's Protector of the Small series. I HATE whent hey do that : ( I do like his new personlity a lot, though. He's so saucy :P

Like I said, I think that she just pretended to kill him off to boost the next book sales. I bet you anything that the last book's sales were down. She has to do SOMETHING to keep the readers interested, now doesn't she? If she doesn't bring him back, I will be forever angry at her.

I'm not offended by them at all Razz I'd love to take a look at it if/when I get the time. I rarely have time to read online, but some days I have nothing to do, so if you post the link, maybe I can check it out Razz

Yay! I"m so glad that there are other HP slash fans out their! anywho here's the link : http://www.fanfiction.net/read.php?storyid=1677570

The chapters are so long it's almost like a book itself. It branches off quite a bit from something that Rowling would do, but I think it's wonderful. It goes into gods and demigods and a lot of other new characters the author created. Harry, Draco and Ginny are more dark in this one as well *drools* I love the bad boys.. you just can't help be drawn to them, ya know?
