Book Description
I say to you all, once again--in the light of Lord Voldemort’s return, we are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided. Lord Voldemort’s gift for spreading discord and enmity is very great. We can fight it only by showing an equally strong bond of friendship and trust.

So spoke Albus Dumbledore at the end of Harry Potter’s fourth year at Hogwarts. But as Harry enters his fifth year at wizard school, it seems those bonds have never been more sorely tested. Lord Voldemort’s rise has opened a rift in the wizarding world between those who believe the truth about his return, and those who prefer to believe it’s all madness and lies--just more trouble from Harry Potter.

Add to this a host of other worries for Harry…
• A Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher with a personality like poisoned honey
• A venomous, disgruntled house-elf
• Ron as keeper of the Gryffindor Quidditch team
• And of course, what every student dreads: end-of-term Ordinary Wizarding Level exams
…and you’d know what Harry faces during the day. But at night it’s even worse, because then he dreams of a single door in a silent corridor. And this door is somehow more terrifying than every other nightmare combined.

In the richest installment yet of J. K. Rowling’s seven-part story, Harry Potter confronts the unreliability of the very government of the magical world, and the impotence of the authorities at Hogwarts.

Despite this (or perhaps because of it) Harry finds depth and strength in his friends, beyond what even he knew; boundless loyalty and unbearable sacrifice.

Though thick runs the plot (as well as the spine), readers will race through these pages, and leave Hogwarts, like Harry, wishing only for the next train back.

About the Author
Joanne K. Rowling has written fiction since she was a child. Jo enjoyed telling her made-up stories to her younger sister and wrote her first "book" at the age of six--a story about a rabbit called Rabbit! She started writing the Harry Potter series after the idea occurred to her on a train journey where she admits Harry "just strolled into my head fully formed."

Received today - will get to it asap

Another of the great Harry Potter series! I was told this was a much darker, angrier Harry - but I think he was just a normally portrayed teenager.

I can't find the next BCer in the database to PM them, so I'm awaiting further instructions on this ray. I can try to find more people to continue the ray if you'd like - but I don't want to leave anyone out.

Journal Entry 8 by lightblue100 from Konstanz, Baden-Württemberg Germany on Sunday, January 22, 2006
This book was another example of what I expect from the Harry Potter series. New dangers, Voldemort, Harry's muggle family, Snape, Hagrid (and his creatures), and even a little Quidditch. I enjoyed it for its lightness, but certainly wouldn't recommend it to anyone who hasn't read the previous four.

And now the book is going back to CrazyTabasco, because he aim an international RABCK. Good luck!
