  Are you getting excited about OOTP?
Updated 18 June 2003, 19.16
The cover of the Order of the Phoenix
This time next week you could have your nose firmly planted in a copy of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix!

How excited about the book release are you? Will you be queuing all evening with your mates? Maybe you're even planning a party?

Have you managed to avoid all the spoilers so far and how are you going to avoid them once the book's out?

We want to know exactly how you're preparing for the big day!

opening quoteOh, I'm so excited!!!!! I've put up a sheet with the dates on and it's only 4 days to go. WHSmith is open from midnight and I'm going at 6 o'clock in the morning. I made a new wand: oak, Veela hair, 8inches. I'm sure I won't be able to sleep that night as I'm such a big fan of it !!!!!closing quote

opening quoteI've never liked Harry Potter books. I've been to see both films and thought they were GR8! But the books are 2 confussing with too many difficult words to pronounce.closing quote
Ali, 13, Clacks

opening quoteI'm so looking forward to it! I can't believe I didn't like Harry Potter when I first read it. The only thing about this book is none of the bookstores are opening at midnight like everywhere else in the world. Even the huge one in Dublin isn't opening and I'm so disappointed because they won't open till 9 am, hours after you all get it!closing quote
Claire, 13, Ireland

opening quoteI can't wait. I've read all the spoilers.I'm counting the days until I get my hands on that book. I'm probably going to read it all summer. I'M GOING TO BE IN HEAVEN!!!!!!!!! closing quote

Jasmine, 11, Sheffield

opening quoteI have been waiting for this book for the longest time!!! My friends and I are so excited we are even going to have a party and gossip about the books all night.

I'm a quick reader and I'm going to get the book 8.00am on Sat and read it all day and night until I'm finished, no stops, just reading!!!! That's how excited I am! I'm reading the other four books this week to build up to reading the order of the phoenix on sat!!! I can't WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!! closing quote
Izzie, 13, Tunbridge Wells

Becki, 13, Sheffield

opening quoteI am so excited that I keep asking my parents to get it for me now when it's not even out yet. I was furious when it got postponed but now there is less than a week to wait. YAY!!!!! closing quote
Rahat, 14, Hayes

opening quoteI'll be at a friend's house on June 21, so we're going to get the book together and read it. We're both really excited about reading, and want to get it through as quickly as possible so we can start writing fan fiction about OOTP!!! But we're kind of afraid cos of the death, what if it's our fave character: Sirius Black?? closing quote
Annis, 14, Maryland, USA

opening quoteI will probably spend the whole day reading it. But I'm a bit anxious about reading something. I don't want to read about one of my favorite characters dieing. But I really want to read the book, so bring it on! closing quote
Faith, 14, Skopje

opening quoteYes I can wait, everyone's making way 2 big a deal about a book. I haven't read number 3 yet, I always wait until the next one comes out til I read it because then if I really can't wait then I have the next one and don't have 2 wait 3 years to find out what happens. closing quote
Heather, Southampton

opening quoteOmg, I can't wait for OOTP to come out! It's been so long since the last one that it doesn't seem real that another one is coming out on Sat. I'm really excited and I really want to find out who dies, and what happens now that Voldemort is powerful again. If you want, there is an excerpt of OOTP that you can listen to on the Amazon.com website. Anyway, can't wait till Sat! closing quote
Sarah, 14, Wiltshire

opening quoteI don't think anyone is as big a fan as me because as soon as I get my hands on it I'm just going to read it about at least 300 times non-stop. I think no fan is that big a fan closing quote
Mark, 9

opening quoteI think the films have ruined the book. The actors can't act apart from Alan Rickman and Tom Felton. closing quote
Laura,13, Larbert

opening quoteWhen I get Order of the Phoenix, I'll be holding it, and not believing I actually have it. Then, I'll start reading it and be back again in Harry's world with all the characters I know so well. closing quote
Corey, 13, Massachusetts, USA

Supraja, 13, Thane

Matt, 14, South Wales

Caroline, 14, Reading

opening quoteOMG I just cannot wait until book 5, it will be great when it comes out. I will probably stay up all night reading it until I finish it and I think when J.K Rowling said that Harry is going to go somewhere and find out the importance of the place. I'm guessing it is probably the riddle house. I don't know I just have a strong feeling that it is that. closing quote
Riley, 14, Walnut

opening quotewhen I get the book I'm gonna cry and cry and cry and cry and cry. I have been waiting for 3 years! And it was just a slow painful torture.

Trude, 15, Stavangar

opening quoteMe & my friend have been waiting three years for this book!!! And yes I'm really excited but I must admit I did lose interest for a while, she took so long with the OOTP, it nearly ruined the whole Harry Potter world for me. closing quote
Liam, 14, Stratford-upon-Avon

opening quoteI cannot wait!!!! The book is going to be very exiting!!! Just 6 days left:-) closing quote
Gunn-Helen, 14, Norway

opening quoteOH MY GOD! 'Excited' isn't big enough word to describe me. I've been waiting 3 WHOLE YEARS of my life for that book. If anyone thinks they know more Harry Potter than me (Apart from J.K.Rowling) then I'll be happy to compete. I LOVE THE BOOKS AND I'll be waiting outside Woolworth's 6 hours before its released and I'm gonna sit outside the shop and finish the book! I bet you I'll read the whole book 3 times before school the next day!! J.K Rowling, you're a genius!!! closing quote

opening quoteI was nearly weeping with excitement when GOF came out; but with OOTP I'm not so sure - the films have, in my opinion, damaged the books reputation. I would rather read the new Artimus Fowl or wait for the next Series Of Unfortunate Events. closing quote

Lydia, 13, Northants

opening quoteI absolutely LOVE the books and I can't wait for the fifth one. But what I can't stand are the films, they are so wrong they are nothing like the books and the characters, for example, Dudley aren't the same!! Does anyone feel the same? The day I get the book I wont be able to stop reading closing quote

Unfortunately, I live in America, and we won't have any of the special midnight parties. Oh well, I still reserved a copy of OOTP and I will get it after drivers ed. closing quote
Amy, 15, USA

opening quoteWow. It's been 3 years and the next one's going to be out in 6 days! I really can't wait. I mean, there's been a lot of hype about the books and movies now, but I think it's mainly because it's been so long since one of the books came out that fans don't have much to do except talk about the old books over and over again. I am very much looking forward to reading OotP! =) closing quote
Lina, 15, London

Lana, 14, Louisville, USA

opening quoteExcitement is an understatement! I think that next Saturday will be the most exciting day of my life! (Maybe apart from the day I'll read the 7th book...). And I DON'T understand how could ANYONE think that LotR is better than HP. closing quote
Tania, Athens, Greece

Lizzy, 12, Ipswich

opening quoteI think HP's been really overrated. I used to be an enormous fan, but I just think it's been wrecked by too much publicity! closing quote
Verity, 12, Cornwall

opening quoteI am awaiting the arrival of the new book yes, but I must agree with many others, that Harry Potter has been ruined by the film, and all the news coverage, it annoys me, as it seems to take all the excitement out of it. I still love the books, and it's comment is nothing personal to JK! I think that the news, and press have made it seem so fake, and so boring. Also, in the film, it is spoilt by bad actors. closing quote
Charlie, 11, Watford

opening quoteI cannot WAIT for OOtP!!!!! closing quote
Kaleigh, 14, Connecticut, USA

opening quoteI really used to love HP, I was one of the first to start reading them but I'm sorry JK - I know it wasn't your fault but because she took so long with the book, she has completely spoiled it by taking so long with book 5 & with all the little kids acting like they are the biggest HP fans. I think HP has lost all of it's original fans and will soon become just another book - shame. closing quote
Ross, 15, Fife

opening quoteOf course I'm excited! I admit that I never used to be such a huge fan but now I'm Potter mad. I'm getting it at midnight and I'm going to stay up all night at my mates house teasing her with it because she thinks it's silly to go out at midnight. closing quote
Natasha, 14, Kilbride

opening quoteI can't wait! But my mum isn't gonna let me buy it 4 a week closing quote

opening quoteI cannot wait until 21st of June. I've been waiting 4 years for Ootp!!! Only problem is there's 5 in my family and we're only getting 1 COPY!!!!! closing quote
Niamh, 13, Northern Ireland

opening quoteI've been waiting for ages and I think it'll be the best so far closing quote
Euan, 11, Newbury

opening quoteI don't care, I used to like HP a lot but it's been ruined- I constantly hear about it on the news, everyone acts like the films are the greatest thing this century and I'm sick of it! I admit I will probably read it, having read the others but I'm in no hurry. closing quote
Caroline, 14

opening quoteI can't wait! My birthday is the day after and I'm a really big Potter fan. I've been reading and reading the four books and now I want to read the 5th! closing quote

opening quoteI can't wait at all! I've been waiting years for this book and it's only a week away! I'm jealous of the first person who gets to buy a copy.closing quote
Jane, 14, kent

opening quoteI don't see what all the fuss is about, Lord of the Rings is way better. I used to like them until the films, they could have done a way better job of them. I'll probably read it, but after everyone else has.closing quote
