As Harry Potter Order of the Phoenix has been out a couple of months now, I think it is safe to talk about it without spoiling the book for anyone. If you wanted to read the book, you should have done by now anyway. Briefly I thought this book was the weakest of the entire series. Here’s why:

Stuff with Centaurs and Giants. Poorly fits in… For me the previous HP books where really tight books. Where everything came together well, and fit in together. This 5th book was shaky to me. Worse, there was no surprises and a fairly predictable plot… The only thing I can say positively, is that the next book can only get better! Why didn’t any prominent critic speak out about this? Or am I just a hype bitten, bitter and twisted young man? ;)
