Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix: The Illustrated Edition (Harry Potter, Book 5) (Illustrated edition)

The fifth book in the beloved, bestselling Harry Potter series, now illustrated in brilliant full color.

There is a door at the end of a silent corridor. And it's haunting Harry Potter's dreams. Why else would he be waking in the middle of the night, screaming in terror? It's not just the upcoming O.W.L. exams; a new teacher with a personality like poisoned honey; a venomous, disgruntled house-elf; or even the growing threat of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. Now Harry Potter is faced with the unreliability of the very government of the magical world and the impotence of the authorities at Hogwarts. Despite this (or perhaps because of it), he finds depth and strength in his friends, beyond what even he knew; boundless loyalty; and unbearable sacrifice.

This stunning illustrated edition brings together the talents of award-winning artists Jim Kay and Neil Packer in a visual feast, featuring iconic scenes and much loved characters -- Tonks, Luna Lovegood, and many more -- as the Order of the Phoenix keeps watch over Harry Potter's fifth year at Hogwarts. With its oversized format, high-quality paper, ribbon bookmark, and color on nearly every page, this edition is the perfect gift for Harry Potter fans and book lovers of all ages.

This book is an magical master piece dramatic but peaceful. This wonderful book created by j.k Rowling is just one of her amazing work. With Harry going through a difficult time ,with Sirius,the only one Harry trusts and I think the newly every one can relate to that. With Harry just leaning how to use his powers and the help and support of his friends and the horrific event of Mr Weasly that shocked the hole family this is just a truly inspiring book and on of my favourite in the Harry potter series and I think that everyone should read. These books have taught be lessons that I never would have none of it if J.K Rowling it wasn't for brilliant mind I think this book teaches you to make sense of your friends and if someone you know or love die s and you won't them back you all ways have help. I hope you read this book and a big thanks to j.k Rowling my favourite author I hope she will keeps on giving more hope for the people that need it. Thank you J.K Rowling we all love you.

I didn’t like this book 18 years ago, when I read it for the first and only time. And everyone says it’s their least favorite book, and I thought I would dislike it as I read it again now. However, I really enjoyed this book. There were few dull moments, except for maybe the star card slow opening. This book seems much more about the emotions of the characters’ experiences than any of the other books. Maybe J.K. Rowling’s intent was to make this world intensely personal to us, because I think it worked. The is familial love between Hagrid and his brother, the Longbottoms, Sirius and Harry, all the Weasleys, and the camaraderie of the Hogwarts faculty. You feel intense frustration and hatred for Professor Umbridge and Bellatrix, and added conflicting emotions toward Harry’s father as a youth, Snape, Kreacher, and even for Dumbledore. I would even add the conflict created toward the creed of the centaurs and the dismissal of Professor Trelawney. The emotions are drawn out very well, and nothing is as simple as once it may have seemed. We, along with Harry, and seeing that the world is more complex than we initially assumed, and I really like what this book created beyond the surface.

18 months ago I told a friend of mine I would like to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child...having never read a Harry Potter book. Our tickets were for 2/21/19. By December I had read two books. I read the last 5 and saw all 8 movies in 8 weeks. The Order of the Phoenix was a part of these amazing people stealing my heart. While I like the Sirius Black in the movie better than the aspect of him I saw in The Order of the Phoenix, I appreciate the continued opening to me of the remarkable courage of these people. Thank you Jo Rowling and all the rest of you who make our time in the wizarding world so rich;

I am rereading the Harry Potter series, and once again experiencing the fun of visiting Hogwarts as well as all the characters in the wizarding world. Order of the Phoenix follows in the footsteps of Goblet of Fire, where the series took a sharp turn and headed down a darker path. As Harry ages, the overall theme of each book keeps pace. Thus, Book 5 finds Harry dealing with many adult issues while struggling with teenage angst. Ms. Rohlwing continues to add to her large cast of characters, perhaps introducing one of the most evil villains of the entire series in Dolores Umbridge. This is saying a lot, as there are plenty of fiends and devils willing to serve the Dark Lord. Perhaps it is because many of us can remember that one teacher in our own life who seemed to do everything in his or her power to inject misery into our lives. Those teachers (wrongly accused or not) live on in Umbridge. Like all of Ms. Rohlwing’s books, this one is captivating, exciting, and almost impossible to set down. Five stars.

I started reading this series to my 9-year-old son to see if I could interest him in chapter books. He loved the books instantly, but I will admit that the first few books were a bit too young for me. This book and the last (Goblet of Fire) have been really engaging and I looked forward to our reading sessions, which are sometimes as long as 3-4 hours, if we have the time. That's a long time to read aloud and I was very surprised that my rather kinetic, athletic boy kept begging for "one more chapter!" What a wonderful experience to share.
