I don't know what it is about this book, but I'm just not enjoying it. I'm rereading the entire series from start to finish for the first time since 2007 and forgot a lot.... all of the others were very quick reads because I couldn't put the books down, but this one is such a chore to read. If this wasn't Harry Potter, I'd have debated to DNF. I'm okay with Harry being angsty because it makes sense after how the fourth book ended. I think either there are too many subplots or the pacing is off. It took about 10 chapters or so to go to Hogwarts. Certain events that were supposed to be shocking had no effect on me because I was just so bored. It is also SO LONG. There's lots of exposition. I'm debating to just skip ahead to certain key scenes so I have context for Half-Blood Prince.

Also, for rereading, knowing the twists for the second, third, and fourth books made it fun to reread and see how everything comes together. Knowing the twists for this book makes everything a little frustrating because I just want to shake everyone and knock sense into them.

I've hated Hagrid since at least book 2 and in this book we learn that the Ravenclaws think he's incompetent and Draco Malfoy is my self-insert:

"The fact that Hagrid was not on probation became common knowledge within the school over the next few days, but to Harry's indignation, hardly anybody appeared to be upset about it; indeed, some people, Draco Malfoy prominent among them, seemed positively gleeful."

The family romance is a latency-period fantasy, belonging to the drowsy years between 7 and adolescence. In ''Order of the Phoenix,'' Harry, now 15, is meant to be adolescent. He spends a lot of the book becoming excessively angry with his protectors and tormentors alike. He discovers that his late (and ''real'') father was not a perfect magical role model, but someone who went in for fits of nasty playground bullying. He also discovers that his mind is linked to the evil Lord Voldemort, thereby making him responsible in some measure for acts of violence his nemesis commits...

Ms. Rowling's magic world has no place for the numinous. It is written for people whose imaginative lives are confined to TV cartoons, and the exaggerated (more exciting, not threatening) mirror-worlds of soaps, reality TV and celebrity gossip. Its values, and everything in it, are, as Gatsby said of his own world when the light had gone out of his dream, ''only personal.'' Nobody is trying to save or destroy anything beyond Harry Potter and his friends and family.

Las tediosas vacaciones de verano en casa de sus tíos todavía no han acabado y Harry se encuentra más inquieto que nunca. Apenas ha tenido noticias de Ron y Hermione, y presiente que algo extraño está sucediendo en Hogwarts. En efecto, cuando por fin comienza otro curso en el famoso colegio de magia y hechicería, sus temores se vuelven realidad. El Ministerio de Magia niega que Voldemort haya regresado y ha iniciado una campaña de desprestigio contra Harry y Dumbledore, para lo cual ha asignado a la horrible profesora Dolores Umbridge la tarea de vigilar todos sus movimientos. Así pues, además de sentirse solo e incomprendido, Harry sospecha que Voldemort puede adivinar sus pensamientos, e intuye que el temible mago trata de apoderarse de un objeto secreto que le permitiría recuperar su poder destructivo.

Book description
As his fifth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry approaches, 15-year-old Harry Potter is in full-blown adolescence, complete with regular outbursts of rage, a nearly debilitating crush, and the blooming of a powerful sense of rebellion. Harry is feeling especially edgy at the lack of news from the magic world, wondering when the freshly revived evil Lord Voldemort will strike. Returning to Hogwarts will be a relief...or will it?
