Top Ten Worst Things About Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Amongst all the Harry Potter novels/movies, this is my least favorite, and here is why.

The Top Ten

1 Dolores Umbridge Dolores Umbridge

There is NOTHING good about this gal. She defeats the whole purpose of the magic school, attempts the Cruciatius Curse on Harry, wants to get rid of magical creatures, and leads attacks on other teachers, all while pretending she's in there for a good cause. - NuMetalManiak

She is just so shockingly evil, I wish Rowling had written her a little more complexly. - keycha1n

She makes the book very interesting and is my favorite character.

EEWWW I loathe this evil toad. She is a child abuser.

2 Sirius Black's death

This should be number one! This was the absolute worst part. And his cousin killed him! HIS PSYCHO COUSIN!

The closest living family member to Harry had died close to the end of the novel. And by his own sister too. - NuMetalManiak

3 The ignorance about Voldemort's return

I HATED Umbridge and Sirius' death was unnecessary and very sad, but the worst and most annoying thing was how everyone was reacting to Voldemort's return. Even Seamus was being horrible. Ugh, it was so awful. Felt so bad for Harry.

Cornelius Fudge, along with other people (especially Umbridge), flat out refuse to believe his return. - NuMetalManiak

That's what makes this book really interesting.

4 Harry getting expelled from Hogwarts

He didn't get expelled for Hogwarts. He almost did, but he didn't.

All because he tried to save Dudley from the dementors. - NuMetalManiak

5 Dumbledore is forced to leave

Due to the tip-off about Dumbledore's Army, he takes responsibility and leaves. This only leads to Umbridge being the Headmistress of Hogwarts. - NuMetalManiak

6 Harry having to live with the Dursleys for one last summer

It wouldn't make sense that this magic-hating family would have Harry with them still, even if Harry had saved Dudley. - NuMetalManiak

7 Harry's visions

Harry has visions of attacks on Arthur Weasley and Sirius Black. It was stated that Voldemort had influence on these visions. - NuMetalManiak

Without those visions, Arthur (Mr. Weasley) would surely perish.

8 The Prophecy

This wasn't really explained until the end of the novel. I guess that makes it more mysterious, but the fact that what they were searching for ended up being destroyed in the battle almost made it lost. - NuMetalManiak

9 Voldemort possessing Harry to attempt to get Dumbledore to kill him
10 Hagrid being driven away from the school

Hagrid didn't have a whole lot to do in this novel. He of course helped the heroes, but again, Umbridge wanted him away from the school. - NuMetalManiak

The Contenders

11 Harry losing his temper
12 Delores Umbridge Making Harry Carve "I Must Not Tell Lies" Right Into His Arm

I know that she was listed as #1 on this list, but, it was specifically this act of cruelty that was the worst thing about her. - clusium

13 Too Mean Spirited
14 Sirius wouldn't have died if Harry had used the mirror
