Thoughts about Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix: After Prisoner of Azkaban, this is my favorite Harry Potter book. And after rereading it a number of times, I think I've finally figured out why I like it so much. It's Umbridge. Well, not Umbridge herself, because she's despicable. But all the ways that the teachers and students disobey her and mess with her. It's incredibly satisfying to see her get more and more frazzled as the book continues. I also LOVE the idea of Dumbledore's Army. I would have joined that group in a heartbeat!
Favorite character in this book: Dumbledore. I love Dumbledore in all of the books, but I think I like him best in this one. He is still a powerful, unimpeachable wizard and leader. But we start to see him more as a person, especially at the end in his conversation with Harry.
