Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince Book Review

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince - J.K. Rowling, Mary GrandPré

There's a new Minster of Magic, the ministry finally believes that Harry and Dumbledore are telling the truth about Voldemort. But its a little too late, the Dementors have joined evil forces as have the giants. Harry must take lessons and this time with Dumbledore to finally learn about Voldemort and why they are connected. 

 

I grow to love Herimione Granger in every book. Seriously, she's the real hero of the story. If it wasn't for her Ron and Harry would have been beaten years ago. I think this was always my least favorite of the series because its just not as enjoyable as the others. While its interesting to read about Voldemort's past I always remember wanting more about Hogwarts and the current time. 

 

It's also just all too convenient for Rowling to make Slughorn the potions professor just when Harry needs to take it an extra year....
