There is a door at the end of a silent corridor, and it's haunting Harry Potter's dreams. Why else would he be waking in the middle of the night, screaming in terror? 

Here are just a few of the things on Harry's mind: 

• 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 
• The looming terror of the end-of-term Ordinary Wizarding Level exams 

I decided to do a re-read of these books this year because it has been a pretty hard one and Harry Potter has been my comfort read since I was in middle school. Again, even after reading this book a hundred times it still has the power to affect me. I love this book, I feel that this book so full of plot and essential information. The 4th book is when the more adult story lines pick up but in this book we are starting to get a feel for the end and it makes me both happy and sad.

I usually cry when I read this book because of the ending but...I did not this time. That is ok, I have read it a million times, as I said. I can't really add anymore, I love this book and you have read it you know what I mean, and if you haven't (you should) you won't.
