Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - J K Rowling


I really wanted to hate this - there are so many reasons why it should be bad. For one, it doesn't even pretend to be a children's book - it's twice as long as it ought to be, it uses difficult vocabulary, it's violent and the complex politics are bewildering to anyone. The power and arrogance of the author has left it virtually unedited. The story doesn't always make sense. But... it's exciting and unpredictable, imaginative and compelling. What is there not to like?
