Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix 411

The Order of the Phoenix brings Harry Potter back for his fifth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, but life isn't that easy for the boy who survived The Goblet of Fire. The evil Voldemort is back, the Ministry of Magic peeps are being a bunch of jerks, everyone thinks Harry's crazy, Hogwarts' Headmaster, Albus Dumbledore, isn't talking and there are enemies everywhere. It's not easy being a 15 year-old kid wizard! It's a good thing Harry Potter can always rely on Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley and the rest of the Gryffindors - or can he?

Good News About the Order of the Phoenix

There are a few things that make Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix cool. The first is that it's a 700-page look into Harry Potter's magical world so you get to explore more of it than ever. The second cool thing is that Harry Potter and his friends are starting to date. Also, Harry gets angry a lot, so he gets together with Hermione and Ron and starts kicking butt. It's cool to see these three putting the magic they've learned (especially Hermione!) to good use. They even start a secret society!

Bad News About the Order of the Phoenix

The biggest bummer about Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is the totally lame death of a major character. It's a major change to Harry Potter's life and it happens almost by accident. It should've happened way differently, if at all.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Final Word

If you're a Harry Potter fan, the Order of the Phoenix is a must-read book. If you're new to the series, it's a good book that'll keep you flippin' pages, but you should pick up the rest of the Harry Potter books and read 'em in order.

    i think the problem is just lack of understanding, and that we need to be taught to some extent about mental illnesses at school. depression - because its so common, but also the other mental illnesses that we don't hear about as often. a year ago, i confronted a friend about the possibility of me being depressed. i told this particular friend because we had a similar conversation the year before that. after i told her, she immediately responded with statements such as "you can't be because you seem so happy" and "try not to be". i think this stopped me from talking about it to any of my other friends since then, especially since some of them would make jokes about depression every once and a while.  i don't think any of my friends mean to be hurtful, its just they don't understand that depression is a serious illness that can't just go away. it effects you mentally, and physically. but people who treat and talk about depression in these ways only make it harder to seek help.
