ProA fantastic continuation of a brilliant series!

ConsLeaves a lot to be explained in the last book!

Where to start? I've been a Harry Potter fan ever since the first book was released, and Half Blood Prince was book 6 in the Harry Potter series of 7 books (1 to come!!!) The main characters (namely Harry, Ron and Hermione) are developed throughout the series, but this is the book where we [the...

ConsThe writing isn't always the best.

There can be only one reason why I wrestled with my preteen daughter over first dibs on reading a book this week (and stooped low enough to pull The Mother Card, i.e., I'm your mother, I have to read it first to make sure it's suitable) - the release of The Half Blood Prince, the sixth instalment...

“Half-blooded?”

ProMagic, mystery...and an evil that isn't powerless

ConsNone whatsoever

"It was nearing midnight and the Prime Minister was sitting alone in his office, reading a long memo that was slipping through his brain without leaving the slightest trace of meaning behind." Can there be an adult alive who would not smile at that? Or a child (in England at least) who would not...

So, a new Harry Potter novel. Once again, the publishing and bookselling industry is pushed to the point of collapse to accomodate the insane media-whipped frenzy to acquire the latest brick-thick installment in the moppet wizard's education. Was it worth it? Is it ever? Well, let's see, and I'll...

ConsClumsy, wordy style

I love this novel, and I detest it. I love it for its absorbing plot which pulls me and holds me - like thousands of readers - spellbound. I love it for it's characters which are so well developed that I know them as well as if they were my own friends or enemies. I hate it for its writing style...

As the stories have progressed from the first book, Harry Potter And The Philosphers Stone, each new book has become darker, with richer storylines and more excitement. This I suppose is signifying also the change in personalities of the characters themselves. Harry Potter And The Half-Blood...

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince is the sixth, and penultimate, book in the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling. The series has followed Harry since he started at Hogwarts School for Wizardry and Witchcraft at the age of eleven, and now our teenage wizard friend is nearly 17, and in his...

The consensus among a certain demographic at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is that 16-year old Harry Potter has never been more fanciable. Fans of J.K. Rowling's sensational saga apparently agree: within twenty-four hours of its release on July 16th, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood...

ConsThe wait for book seven

There can't be a muggle alive that has not yet heard of Harry Potter, love him or loathe him, he is the name on everyone's lips this month. The release of Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince has been anticipated since the release of book five, and for many, July 16th 2005 could not come around...

Ok, I gave into media pressure and bought this book, well I've read the five previous books in the series, so I couldn't really not read this one could I?

“Who's the Half Blood Prince?”

published 08/07/2007

ProEverything!

ConsNothing!

So here is my final Harry Potter review - until the seventh book is released that is! Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince is my favourite of the six, thanks to it's slightly lighter tone, the regular mix of humour, adventure and drama. **Blurb** (from the back of the book) It is the middle of...

“The Penultimate Potter”

published 17/07/2005

ProMore sophisticated, darker, adult

ConsLength, may not be for younger audiences

At long last, the penultimate Harry Potter has arrived, and at 607 pages, fits J.K. Rowling's penchant for making each book grow increasingly longer. Still, to give her credit, despite the length of the book (and the price), she has managed to create a novel that, while it answers some questions...
