Reviews of Fantasy & Science Fiction Books Harry Potter #5: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenixby J.K. Rowling
Review by: Casey M.
Louisiana, Grade 11
The larger theme of the story is basically about Harryís run for the items made by voldemort, though all of the events leading up to that point in the story make up most of the text. Iíts almost as though the main events of the story have no relevance what so ever until you get there. It is obvious that the main theme of the story is death conflicting with life and the constant fight against an evil that will undoubtedly kill every last living thing, but the way she describes the actual confrontation at the end of the story gives the reader the impression that good is not all together that strong. Harry couldnít do anything against Snape, and that was my favorite part of the story.
I really liked all of the Harry Potter stories, but if I had to choose one it would be this one. She completely captured my imagination, and it didnít take me more than a few pages to get into it. Even though I know that the story took place in an imaginary world it feels as though it were as real as Iím standing here. To find a book that I really like is hard for me to do, especially after reading this book. I compare all of the books that I read to this one. I havenít found one that I really liked yet, though Iím sure that there is one out there somewhere.
