Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: A Review (Harry Potter #6)

Description (Goodreads):

It is the middle of the summer, but there is an unseasonal mist pressing against the windowpanes. Harry Potter is waiting nervously in his bedroom at the Dursleys' house in Privet Drive for a visit from Professor Dumbledore himself. One of the last times he saw the Headmaster was in a fierce one-to-one duel with Lord Voldemort, and Harry can't quite believe that Professor Dumbledore will actually appear at the Dursleys' of all places. Why is the Professor coming to visit him now? What is it that cannot wait until Harry returns to Hogwarts in a few weeks' time? Harry's sixth year at Hogwarts has already got off to an unusual start, as the worlds of Muggle and magic start to intertwine...

J.K. Rowling charts Harry Potter's latest adventures in his sixth year at Hogwarts with consummate skill and in breathtaking fashion.

My Review:

Once again. Harry Potter is life.

I remember reading this book for the first time and just...was aghast at the ending. I was in denial until the movie and the seventh book came out.

But, I moved forward.

This book once again shows the strength between Harry, Hermione, and Ron's friendship. We see the young side of Voldemort and how he came to be the murder he is.

This book brings in a lot of the past with the present. I love how we see more of the behind the scenes of Voldemort and why he never dies. It's a terrifying thought really, to tear one's soul into pieces to stay alive...

One thing that made me really sad in this book is that Dumbledore's Army only consisted of Neville and Luna. Those two fit in so well with there, and they made good friends there. I felt for them as they struggled this year without the DA meetings.

Although, this book showed how much Harry and his gang are still in the dark about things. Dumbledore was only able to brush the surface of everything going on. It's a good thing Hermione was there to help them figure the majority of it out.

4.5 out of 5!
