Book Description : 

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

Harry has a lot on his mind for this, his fifth year at Hogwarts: a Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher with a personality like poisoned honey; a big surprise on the Gryffindor Quidditch team; and the looming terror of the Ordinary Wizarding Level exams. But all these things pale next to the growing threat of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named---a threat that neither the magical government nor the authorities at Hogwarts can stop.

As the grasp of darkness tightens, Harry must discover the true depth and strength of his friends, the importance of boundless loyalty, and the shocking price of unbearable sacrifice.

His fate depends on them all.  

Reading this after the Goblet of fire was a bad experience. The level of excitement dropped from super high to mediocre. As for me the story was really nice. But I felt there was unnecessary dragging of things which could've been chopped down in editing

The read is super lengthy for me who's more into reading books in one day ( 700pgs max). This one took me 2 days to finish and well it also made me lousy and sleepy as the middle portion of the story was horribly draggy. The end was a bit better but however it could've been much better comparing to previous books in the series.

I felt the content here in terms of plot progress was very meagre and it had a lot of portion for the ones who just wanted to read more about harry's daily life. It could've been skipped altogether and it wouldn't have mattered at all as this book barely contributed in the story progress.

The death of Sirius, introduction to professor Umbridge and sacking of fudge. I feel these three are the only major changes that are in the book you might ought to know. You can read first few chapters and end few chapters for this book if you just want to know the story.

I'd say it was an okayish read if you are persistent in reading all the books. Watch the movie counterpart for this book. That'd be my recommendation.
