Review #204

This is a list of discussion questions below for a book club instead of my usual detailed review. Feel free to use any question.

Title- Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix

Author- J.K. Rowling

Rating– 4/5 (This was my least favorite of the series)


Dark times have come to Hogwarts. After the Dementors’ attack on his cousin Dudley, Harry Potter knows that Voldemort will stop at nothing to find him. There are many who deny the Dark Lord’s return, but Harry is not alone: a secret order gathers at Grimmauld Place to fight against the dark forces. Harry must allow Professor Snape to teach him how to protect himself from Voldemort’s savage assaults on his mind. But they are growing stronger by the day and Harry is running out of time….

Having now become classics of our time, the Harry Potter audiobooks never fail to bring comfort and escapism to listeners of all ages. With its message of hope, belonging, and the enduring power of truth and love, the story of the Boy Who Lived continues to delight generations of new listeners. 

“Things we lose have a way of coming back to us in the end, if not always in the way we expect.”
