Wait! Make sure you go read part 1 of this review first. You need the context, man, I'm tellin you.
(And, spoilers, so you've been warned.)
And the Order of the Phoenix:
Hits the ground running with the dementor attack and subsequent threat of expulsion from Hogwarts. Then, unfortunately, lapses into long boring exposition scenes at the Order headquarters. Talking, talking, talking. Not the fun wizard world-building of the early books, just worthless junk about who's related to who and crap like that. Maybe this stuff is important later, but there's so much blah-bitty-blah, I tune out often.
There does seem to be less "catch-up" exposition like reminding readers who certain characters are in the early part of the book. Maybe Rowling assumes readers should just know by now?
When Harry finds out Ron's been made prefect, his inner monologue is great. Hints of jealousy because he wasn't chosen, like any regular teen would have. Shows that Rowling is still developing Harry's personality, and that for such a sympathetic kid, he does have a bit of an Anakin Skywalker dark side. Just don't kill all the little Jedis at the Jedi school, please Harry. That's too hard to watch.
