Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling

Wit beyond measure is a man’s greatest treasure- Luna Lovegood

Most of my favorite Harry Potter quotes come from this book. I have put them in my review.

Harry is back with the Dursleys once more for the summer. He is still haunted by Voldemort’s return. Hermione and Ron sent him letters but they couldn’t tell him exactly what was going on due to Dumbledore having them swear not to tell him. Harry was coming home one day which he ran into Dudley. They had a little fight then all of the lights went out. They were in an alleyway. The stars and the rest of the lights went away. It was pitch black. Then Harry knew by the sound that there was a dementor near.

Once him and Dudley get home he receives a letter from the Ministry saying he was expelled for the use of the Patronus charm in front of a muggle. Harry is then confined to his room till a rescue team comes to get him to take him to headquarters. There he is reunited with everyone. He learns about the Order of the Phoenix. Hermione and Ron have a letter telling them that they are Gryffindor prefects. Ron is then reward a new broom for being the fourth prefect in the Weasley family.

“What are Fred and I, next-door neighbors.” – George Weasley

At school Malfoy is making it known that he knows certain things that he should not know. The bad part of this is he is also a prefect for the Slytherin house. People are whispering about Harry due to the Daily Profit saying lies about him and Dumbledore. The worst part is Dolores Umbridge. No explanation required. She herself is the worst part. If only I could reach into the book and avada Kardva her little pink toad face.

My parents are Muggles, mate, They don’t know nothing about no deaths at Hogwarts, because I’m not stupid enough to tell them. – Dean Thomas

Do you think your father and I would’ve lain down and taken orders from an old hag like Umbridge?- Sirius Black

Umbridge is given the status of High Inquisitor and is inspecting every teacher. She puts Trewanly and Hagrid on probation. She later fires Trewanly. Harry is having dreams of a dark corridor. He dreams of Mr. Weasley being attacked which he is rushed to Dumbledore who sends Harry and the Weasley children back to Grimmwald Place.

“You should be proud, Neville, proud! They didn’t give their health and their sanity so their only son would be ashamed of them, you know!” – Augusta Longbottom

After Christmas break everything seems to go downhill. Dumbledore had to escape the minister. This leaving no one in charge Umbridge is the new headmistress. Not good. Hagrid knew that he might have to leave sometime due to Umbridge not liking him, he brought Harry and Hermione to meet the reason why he is always injured. George and Fred end up making a the fifth floor corridor a swamp. They then left school to start their joke shop.

With parting words from Fred to Peeves- “Give her hell from us, Peeves”  Only time Peeves has taken an order from anyone.

The thing about growing up with Fred and George, is that you sort of start thinking anything’s possible if you’ve got enough nerve.” – Ginny Weasley

During career counseling Professor McGonagall put Umbridge down a few pegs. “I should have made my meaning plainer, He has achieved high marks in all Defense Against the Dark Arts tests set by a competent teacher.” Makes us love her even more.

Of course now the end which is incredible sad and yes I did bawl my eyes out.

Rating 5 stars out of 5




Lover of books and movies. Goodreads reviewer. Animal lover. I write my honest opinion on here. I don't lie about my look on a book. I'm not mean and tearing a book or the author down. I'm completely honest.
