Evaluation 1 I have to say that of all of the books, however, this was not my favorite Slide 100: Evaluation 2 When the series began it was as much of a “feel good” experience as a huge mug of hot cocoa. The stories were bright, fast-faced, intriguing, and ultimately satisfying. Interpretative Recount (tafsiran) Order of the Phoenix is different kind of book. In some instances this works … you feel a whole new; level of intensity and excitement by the time you get to the end. I was truly move by the last page. Other time the book just has a slightly dreary, depressing feel. Slide 101: The galloping pace of the other books has slowed to a trot here, and parts of it do seem long, as if were reading all about Harry “just hanging out” instead of having his usual adventures. Reading in detail about Harry cleaning up an old house, for example-house keeping is still housekeeping, magical or no, and I’m not very interested in doing it or reading about other people doing it. Slide 102: Summary A few other changes in this book-the “real” world comes much more in to play rather than fantasy universe of the previous books, and Harry is apparently been taken off his meds. I know that he has a lot of to be grumpy in this book, especially with being a teenager and all, but the sudden change in his character seemed too drastic. He goes from being a warm-hearted, considerate person to someone who will bite his best friend’s heads off over nothing. It just seemed like it didn’t fit with his character, like he turned into a walking cliché of the “angry teen” overnight. Slide 103: The “real” story seemed to happen in the last 1/3 of the book, and this part I loved. I actually liked the ending (and yes, I cried) as sad as it was. I packed a punch and it made me care about the story even more. Still a really good book, with some editing it would have been great. Slide 104: Thank You very much .....
