It is Harry Potter's sixth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. As Voldermort's sinister forces amass and a spirit of gloom and fear sweeps the land, it becomes more and more clear to Harry that he will soon have to confront his destiny. But is he up to the challenges ahead of him? And what's more, will he be able to survive them?

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince must be one of my most favourite Harry Potter books. I know I said that before in my other reviews, but I truly feel that this is the one. It has all the same themes, but in this book, they go deeper, both in the words and yourself.

I thought that it was so clever of J.L. Rowling to not make Harry go out there and try to kill Voldermort by force, but let him figure out the pieces of his enemy, through memories, then act upon them. This is something very few books have, patience, as in most, the character would go and try to finish the job quickly.

The characters are growing up as well, and crushes and relationships start to break up Hermione, Ron and Harry. They came back together near the end, but its kinda sad and funny to see them grow up.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is fun, mystical and thrilling, with hints of mystery, action and magic. This book is for everyone, and I mean absolutely everyone.
Good Points
-Harry Potter cannot go wrong!!!

Oh, this book. THIS BOOK. I loved it, even though it broke my heart. I loved it because Dumbledore finally enlists Harry's help in unmasking Voldemort's past with an eye toward predicting the villain's next move. The history of both Voldemort and of the other characters I've come to love (Snape, Dumbledore, Sirius etc.) is as superbly rich in detail and nuance as any of Rowling's tales. But what really sets this book apart is the ending. (I figure it's too late for spoilers, but I'll be careful anyway.) I cried. Even though I realized it had to happen so that Harry would step up to the role that has been looming over his head since birth, it was a LOSS. Amazing book.

Alas, it was bound to happen.  This installment of the "Harry Potter" series has us saying goodbye to a major and well-loved character.  (sorry, not listing who it is in case someone hasn't actually read it yet...imagine that!)  Harry and his pals are dealing with dark times indeed, as well as their own blossoming adolescence.  Friends are made, foes are made to choose sides, as the Dark Lord attempts to regain his strength through the many Horcruxes he left behind.  Can they stop what's coming?  Are they strong enough without their fallen friend?

Recommended for all readers, although young ones may need some consoling when the "deed" is done.  An overall fascinating addition to a great collection leaving you impatient for the final book.....happy reading!

I really can see why the narrator of these books has won some serious
awards! He does a great job of reading the book. I do somewhat wish
they had done a full-casting of these books, but one can't be picky. I
think I read too fast and when I listen to an audiobook, I get more out
of the book. It was nice to get a picture of what happened so I'm
prepped for the movie coming out soon!

With Dumbledore back as the Headmaster, Harry and Dumbledorego on a search for Voldomorts hortexes.  Harry finds out hortexes are objects that a wizard can choose to keep part of their soul inside it, so if something were to happen to the body the wizard could still live.  While at school Harry takes classes so he can become successful when he leaves Hogwarts; one is potions.  Since he doesnt have some of the supplies he borrows some; one is an old textbook that has hints written in it by someone called the half-blood prince and Harry soon becomes a popular student in potions.  But who is the Half-Blood Prince and can he be trusted when it could mean life or death for Ron?  Harry and Dumbledore soon find out that Voldomort made seven hortexes. Dumbledore tells Harry two have already have been destroyed so they set out for the other five.  Will Harry and Dumbledore be able to destroy the other five hortexes?

The darkest and evilest book in the potter series this book will make u want to make sure that their is no such thing as magic in this world so u could stay away
Enter the world of jk rowling if you dare.

This 700-plus page novel by J.K. Rowling is an enthraling journey to another world. Harry's sixth year is a dark book that begins to answer some questions some readers might have from previous HP novels. I can't tell you how much I love this book. Do yourself a favor and GET YOUR BUTT OUT THERE AND READ THIS BOOK!!
