Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix was the very first in the Harry Potter series that i personally read, before that i was never that interested, however, since tyen i have become almost obsessed as such. During reading the book it felt like i was thrown into a whole new world and i began to imagine this place in my head and what all the characters would look like, bearing in mind i hadn't even seen the films. A lot of the story didn't make sense to me at first though i continued to read and try and make sense of what was happening. after that I went on to read the other books in reading order until i made my way back to this one, suddenly everything made sense and i became hooked, i owe my love of the Harry Potter franchise to this book, and i advise other people to read it also as you a guaranteed a brilliant reed...assuming you reed the books in order of course ;-)
Harry Potter returns for his fifth year at hogwarts, however not all is what it seems, nobody belives him that voldemort has returned to power and suddenly they look at him as the enemy, even his best friends, Ron and Hermione havn't replied to his friends all summer. Harry must set about convincing everybody that he is telling the truth to prevent death and destruction at the hands and voldemort and also dig back into his past to find out exactly what it is that makes voldemort want to kill him so much and must once more face his wrath...the begining of the end is near!
