Harry Potter and the order of the phoenix

"Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" is the fifth book of the seven-part-fantasy story about the young wizard Harry Potter. The book is written by the British Joanne Kathleen Rowling. The idea for the book came to her while on a train ride in. She said that she really liked the idea of creating a place where a child could have power. Since she had this idea in 1990 she wrote 5 books about Harry's adventures and all books were a big success. Bloomsbury Publishing bought Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in 1997 and it was an instant success. Joanne K Rowling had plans to write a book for each of the 7 years that Harry is at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, 5 of them have already been published. Warner Brothers has the rights to the first two books, and has already made two books into movies. The Point of view is neither "all knowing" nor "third person limited", because we can enter Harry's mind, but don't know what the other characters think or do. The author is like a reporter, but only about what Harry Potter is doing. We don't know what the others are doing, especially not from the "bad"-side. The main characters in the book are of course the 15-year-old Harry Potter, who is an orphan. The Dark Lord, also called Lord Voldemort, killed his parents when they were trying to safe Harry. Voldemort tried to kill Harry too, but he couldn't and the only injury Harry got was a lightning-shaped scar on his forehead. In the seventh book, the last of the books, will come out who is going to win the big fight: Harry Potter or the Dark Lord. Together with his two best friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger are fighting against dark forces like Voldemort himself and his supporters. Harry has to live together with the Dursleys: his aunt Petunia, his uncle Vernon and his cousin Dudley. But Harry, who isn't treated by them as a real family member, sees Hogwarts as his real home and the Weasleys, Ron's family, treat him like a member of their family. Harry would love to live with his godfather Sirius, who escaped from Azkaban- prison for wizards and witches, but this is impossible because Sirius always has to live hidden. To fight against the Dark Lord, Harry gets a lot of support and advices from the Hogwart's headmaster Albus Dumbledore. He is one of the only persons Voldemort is afraid of. And then there's the Order of the Phoenix: this order was founded to fight against Voldemort. Some of the members are Alastor Moody, Nymphadora Tonks, Remus Lupin, Sirius, Dumbldeore and the Wealsley parents. Unfortunately, the Dark Lord isn't Harry's only enemy: Draco Malfoy, his father is one of the Death Eaters, make him a lot of trouble. And especially in his fifth year at Hogwarts he has to struggle with the toad like and simpering Dolores Umbridge, senior undersecretary to the Minister of Magic, who takes over the vacant position of Defence against the Dark Arts teacher. In the period of the summer holidays, Harry lives with the despicable Dursleys in Number 4, Privet Drive, a little Street in London where only Muggels, that means not any wizards or witches, live. He hates living with them and therefore he is looking forward to go back to Hogwarts School for witches and wizards, which is in the magical world. The headquarters of the Order of the Phoenix are hidden in the magical world. Number 12, Grimmauld Place is the ancient house of Sirius's family, the Blacks. The Book begins in the summertime and it's been yet another infuriating and boring summer in Number 4, Privet Drive. Harry is feeling especially frustrated at the lack of news from the magic world, wondering what's happening to his friends and Sirius. He thinks that returning to Hogwarts is going to be a relief, but this year is one of his darkest. Most of the students in the school seem to think Harry is either conceited or crazy for insisting that Voldemort is back and as evil as ever. And Dumbledore, somebody Harry could always talk about his problems and got advices, is uncommunicative and moreover the head of the ministry of Magic, Cornelius Fudge, is determined to discredit Dumbledore and undermine his leadership of Hogwarts. He appoints instead to nasty Dolores Umbridge as the new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher and High Inquisitor of the School, bringing misery upon staff and students alike. This bureaucratic nightmare, added to Harry's certain knowledge that Voldemort is becoming more powerful, creates a desperate feeling during almost the whole fifth year at Hogwarts. And life isn't getting any easier for Harry, because he has an overwhelming course load to prepare him for his Ordinary Wizarding Levels (OWLs) examination and there are devastating changes in the Gryffindor Quidditch team line-up. Every night he has vivid dreams about long hallways and a closed door and then there's this increasing pain in his lightning-shaped scar. Also, Harry is now fifteen and the hormones are beginning to kick in. But all to his anger and disappointment he can't even tell his godfather about his problem and ask for advice, because the danger of giving the Ministry of Magic a hint where he lives is much to big. All this anger, sadness and confusedness lead to a big frustration. The book reaches its climax when Harry has a vision in his dreams that Sirius is being killed by Voldemort in the Department of Mysteries- which is located in the Ministry. Harry and his friends Ron, Hermione, Neville Longbottom, Ginny who is Ron's sister and Luna Lovegood break in there for trying to safe the godfather. But they can't find Sirius anywhere; they only find a mysterious glass ball with a prophecy for Harry and Voldemort. All of a sudden a dozen of Death Eaters stand behind them and order Harry to give them the prophecy. He and his friends have to run away to get the prophecy out of the Death Eater's reach, but most of his friends get wounded on the way out of the Department. Luckily the members of the Order of the Phoenix come to their secure. There's a big fight and suddenly Harry feels a big pain on his scar. Voldemort himself came to get the prophecy, but when Harry tries to run away, the glass ball falls on the ground and breaks, but that's only a lost for Voldemort. Sirius falls into a mysterious room during a fight with one of the Death Eaters and his never going to come back. Harry can't stand the pain of this lost and thinks it's his fault, because he trusted his false vision. Lord Voldemort manages to escape, but at least Harry's friends are all alive. In the end of the book, Dumbledore tells Harry a secret he should have told him when he came to the school five years ago. This secret makes his life even more difficult and the knowledge that the holidays and the return to the Dursleys come nearer and nearer don't push up his mood. But his friends promise him to stay in contact this time. I think one of the author's underlying intention when writing this story was that friends have to keep together even in hard times. You can't blame your friends for all the bad things that happen in your life. Because if you let out your mood on them, they won't want to be with you anymore. And there comes a day when you need your friends much more than everything else. Another message is to support your friend. Because if you support and help your friend, one day you will get help and support back from them. Trust is also a message in the story. Because if you can't even trust your friend, who else can you trust?? And to be mistrustful makes you lose your friends. I think that the unifying idea is that friendship is maybe the most important thing in live!!
