Have you voted? Cool. (Don't want to sway the results)
My choice is Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Perhaps the darkest of all seven of the books, this one really delved into Harry coming into his own and spending much of the novel feeling sorry for himself. The weight of the world was really resting on his shoulders, and he had one of literature's great villains, Dolores Umbridge, to contend with. And, well, we all know what happened in the end (but I won't spoil it for those who don't know).
For emotional depth and range, Harry coming of age, not to mention my favorite cover.... to me, Order of the Phoenix is the novel that delves the deepest, and for that reason it's my pick for best of the seven.
What about you? What made you pick your favorite?
