d. Your personal opinion.
I think this is a great book, the best in the Harry Potter series. Except for the chapter where Sirius died, because he's my favourite character. Before I started reading this book I never thought I'd feel sorry for Snape. And that there could be someone, that if she would be compared to Snape, you'd actually start liking him. I'm talking about Umbridge of course.
But nevertheless it's one of the best books I've ever read.
Title of the book: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Author: J.K. Rowling
genre: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is a fantasy novel, because it's about a school for wizards and witches and of course a complete magical community.
