I love this book. Great writer to keep young and old readers envolved in story. Keep up the series going. Am reading it over and even now get it from library on audio best thing to do. Can listen to it while I play on internet. I am reading and listening to all Rowlings' books about Potter. Can resist them all. Magic of how her story begins and yet the story isn't over yet! Want to know what's after the Order of the Phoenix got to be more and more. Potter just got to get that Voltermore but will he ha ha, only the next book will tell please let the world know I want to read it.
