“It’s a secret society. Dumbledore’s in charge, he founded it. It’s the people who fought against You-Know-Who last time.”
—Description and history of the Order
Why did Lord Voldemort single Harry out?
For five audiobooks, this mystery seemed somewhat clouded. It was not until Order of the Phoenix Audiobook free that we realized what a burden Dumbledore had been carrying on his shoulders, and that the rather batty Professor Trelawney (of all people) had predicted the fate of Harry Potter in a pub before he had even been born.
All about Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix Audiobook
Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix Audiobook free is a fantasy audiobook written by British author J. K. Rowling and the fifth audiobook in the Harry Potter Audio Books series.
It follows Harry Potter’s struggles through his fifth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, including the surreptitious return of the antagonist Lord Voldemort, O.W.L. exams, and an obstructive Ministry of Magic.
The plot summary
The Order of the Phoenix was a secret society founded by Albus Dumbledore to oppose Lord Voldemort and his Death Eaters. The original Order was created in the 1970s. It was constructed after Voldemort returned to England from abroad and started his campaign to take over the Ministry of Magic and persecute Muggle-borns.
The Order worked with the Ministry to oppose the Dark Lord and his followers and played a crucial role in the First Wizarding War. Their first victory came in 1981, with Voldemort’s first defeat at the hands of Harry Potter. The victory came with the high cost of many of their members.
The Order disbanded but was reconvened in 1995 after Harry Potter informed Dumbledore of Lord Voldemort’s return. The Ministry refused to admit that the Dark Lord had returned, thus the Order alone worked to protect Harry Potter and the prophecy concerning him and Voldemort in the Department of Mysteries. After an intense battle occurred there on 18 June 1996 between the Order, Dumbledore’s Army, and the Death Eaters, the Ministry finally admitted the truth.
The following year would see the Order losing their leader and the Ministry being conquered by Voldemort. The Order remained an underground resistance, trying to protect Muggles and broadcast the truth during the worst days of the Second Wizarding War.
They answered the call to arms by Dumbledore’s Army on 2 May 1998, fighting Voldemort and his Death Eaters for the final time at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The Battle of Hogwarts ended with Voldemort’s death at Harry Potter’s hands and a decisive victory for the Order and their allies.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix has won several awards, including being named an American Library Association Best Book for Young Adults in 2003. Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix Audiobook has also been made into a film, which was released in 2007, and into a video game by Electronic Arts.
The Order of the Phoenix textbook was published on 21 June 2003 by Bloomsbury in the United Kingdom, Scholastic in the United States, and Raincoast in Canada. Five million copies were sold in the first 24 hours of publication.
There are two versions of the Harry Potter and the Goblet Of Fire Audiobook free, one is narrated by Stephen Fry, the other Jim Dale. Now, you can enjoy both of them on EZ Audiobooks.
The Order of the Phoenix Audiobook by Stephen Fry: Stephen Fry makes the characters even more vivid. His voice for Hagrid is low, gruff and gentle, just what you would expect. Hermione sounds incredibly precocious and annoying but gradually becomes less so as the book progresses. The story wraps you in a warm cloak of positive feelings, happiness and a sense of belonging.
Having Fry read such a lovely story to you makes it all the more comforting and enjoyable. Even though Harry Potter is J K Rowling’s first audiobook and her prose may be flawed in places, (particularly in the beginning describing life with the Dursleys) Harry Potter is undoubtedly a classic made even more magical by Stephen Fry. I highly recommend this audiobook for all ages.
The Order of the Phoenix Audiobook by Jim Dale: Jim Dale is another fantastic narrator. Born in England, Dale also has an English accent. Dale is a voice artist, and definitely weighted towards the dramatized end of the scale. Dale invites a sense of urgency in his voice, and has you on your toes. This increased dramatization, although predominantly great, I feel it is sometimes a little over the top.
Dale is a magician in character range; he created 134 voices for the Harry Potter Audiobooks series. This series has given Dale more awards than any narrator previous. His prestige, and breadth of bestseller coverage is rather astonishing.
The Order of the Phoenix is the longest audiobook in the series, which makes it very hard to whittle down to just 10 things we loved about this epic story. But we must try.
The story of Harry and his misadventures reaches new levels of complexity and darkness in this audiobook. The audiobook introduces the Order of the Phoenix, a group committed to fighting against Voldemort and all he stands for. We also get to meet a whole load of new and loveable characters.
Standouts for me would have to be Dolores Umbridge, Nymphadora Tonks and the mischievous Mundungus Fletcher. Not only do we get to meet new characters, but we get to spend a little more time outside of Harry’s usual haunts (Hogwarts, the Dursleys, Ron’s) which is nice because we get more than a glimpse into the magical world.
St Mungo’s hospital for magical maladies and injuries is innovative and original, it is also where one of the many very humorous scenes between Arthur and Molly Weasley takes place. Grimmauld Place, the home of Sirius and headquarters for the Order of the Phoenix gives us an understanding of wizarding homes- particularly those of dark wizards. With a filthy, old, grumpy House Elf, a vile painting of Mrs Black which- when opened, will scream insults at anyone in the near vicinity.
Without a doubt, Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix Audiobook free has some of the most exciting, humorous, uplifting and heart-wrenching scenes of the series. One of my all-time favorite parts has to be when Dumbledores Army decides to wreak havoc with the High Inquisitor (with even some of the teachers joining in with the fun) and Fred and George’s spectacular desertion. I still smile thinking about it! This audiobook really is a gem of a story and brilliantly told.
