“I just started re-reading this since I saw the movie and thought there was so much left out. Yes, I know they can't put it all in, but I needed to re-read before THE DEATHLY HALLOWS comes out Saturday!!”ket402 wrote this review Wednesday, July 18, 2007.

“I love Fred and George and they really shine in OOTP! My hatred for Umbridge causes bodily harm to my book. Any book that can cause real emotion like that is okay by me. ”meag wrote this review Monday, July 16, 2007. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“It's likely that I'm going to be in the minority here, but I really did not like this book. Indeed, it actually put me off the Harry potter series; up until this book I had enjoyed them quite a lot (although I don't think I was ever an avid fan). I think it's easier to say what parts I actually liked because the things that I disliked creates quite a long list! Umbridge's pen was a very good idea and I liked the mischief the Weasley twins caused throughout the book. Parts of the DA were also very good.
OK, some things I didn't like: The entire ending, for a start. Harry was far too impulsive and got himself into trouble. I hated how the ending took place in the Ministry of Magic. What was with the weird brains that attacked Ron? Harry annoyed throughout the book, I wanted to slap him. His and Cho's very strange relationship. Sirius' very weak death. And more, but I think I've gone on long enough.
This is my opinion of this book, anyway, and how I felt when reading it. ”
