Harry potter and the half blood prince book review short
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by JK Rowling book reviewElaborately stage-managed as the hoopla might have been, no one can doubt the excitement of all those children queuing for their copies. But then none of them had yet read the book. For, in truth, this sixth Harry Potter novel is designed to dampen any readerly high spirits. Concluding inconclusively, with puzzles unresolved and prophecies unfulfilled, there may be plenty to guarantee the mega-sales of number seven, which will complete the sequence. Yet Harry Potter's fulfilment of his destiny has now become grim-faced. Some might feel a little like Ron Weasley when he sees Hermione Granger reading the unreliable, indispensable wizard tabloid, the Evening Prophet. Well might he ask, for the body count has been mounting.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
All reviews for: Harry Potter
Voldemort is and growing stronger as is his following and dangerous times are ahead for our hero and his friends. He succeeds and Professor Slughorn begins the term at Hogwarts teaching potions, with Severus Snape now the Defence of Dark Arts teacher, the job he has so long hankered after. Harry is lent a potions book by Professor Slughorn, which Harry finds a number of notes from it's previous owner, which allow Harry to excel in a subject he has never been more than average at. The book is marked "Property of the Half-Blood Prince". Things do not appear to be as they should to Harry; he overhears Malfoy, who he sees entering a shop dealing in dark arts artefacts and then threatening the shop keeper about an item he wants repairing and another that needs to be kept safe.
