The Order of the Phoenix is imaginative
If you are a fan of J.K Rowling and appreciate Harry Potter in his earlier novels, then this one will surely prove to be of interest to you. This novel is the 5th in the Harry Potter series and was also made into a major film. This book also has won several awards, including being named by the American Library Association as the best book for young adults in 2003.
Once again in this book, J.K. Rowling shows her creative prowess. Harry Potter is now depicted as an angry and mature individual facing all the problems of adolescence. Apparently this is the longest book in the entire series, as Rowling herself has been facing accusations about writing about witchcraft and sorcery as the book has been said to have dark, dark connotations. However, all of this seems to have taken a backstage with the popularity that the Potter series itself has seen. For readers who are new to this book, it would be more advisable to read Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
Well, the book begins with Harry Potter stuck at his uncle and aunt's residence away from the magical world. He's awaiting signs of any sort of activity from Voldermort and is barely in touch with some of his best friends. His mentor Dumbledore has ordered him away for his own safety. In spite of this order, Harry and his cousin Dudley are attached by the Dementors, which Potter manages to drive away using magical powers.
There are other parts of the complex plot as well. For example, Voldermot is depicted as trying to get hold of some sort of a weapon. Harry also returns to Hogwarts, where he finds a new teacher Umbridge of the Dark Arts, who forces students to learn the subject from text books rather than by practical means. Dumbeldore's army is formed which choses Harry as its leader. Towards the ending, Harry and Voldermort are shown locked in a duel over a prophecy, which actually is the weapon that Voldermort was after. Go on and read the book if you like, it’s an addition to an already popular series.
