Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K Rowling

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K Rowling

There’s not much I can say about Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince as an introduction to this book. Even if the Philosopher’s stone is my favorite, this is coming in a close second!

And let me tell you why, exactly. this book is amazing for me!

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

First of all, because we see Harry mouthing off to every one. Okay, mouthing off to a professor is a bad thing. But every time he is mouthing off to the Minister of Magic, I am cheering and rooting for him!

Secondary, he finally wakes up and realises what Ginny means to him! Of course, the way he realises it is stupid, in my humble opinion. But finally seeing them together, is something I was looking forward to!

Finally, I realy liked how the Half-Blood Prince didn’t have to do with Harry himself. Of course they knew each other and they had interacted and here is where everyone has one question!

How come Harry didn’t recognise the Half-Blood Prince’s writing? Since he would see it for the last 5 years on the black board?

I don’t know about you, but my hand writing isn’t what it was 5 years ago. Let alone when I was at school!

I’ll close this review with one of the best moments in the book and I’ll be looking forward to your comments!

“He accused me of being Dumbledore’s man through and through.”
“How very rude of him.”
“I told him I was.”
Dumbledore opened his mouth to speak and then closed it again. Fawkes the phoenix let out a low, soft, musical cry. To Harry’s intense embarrassment, he suddenly realized that Dumbledore’s bright blue eyes looked rather watery, and stared hastily at his own knee. When Dumbledore spoke, however, his voice was quite steady.
“I am very touched, Harry.”

About the Book:

"There it was, hanging in the sky above the school: the blazing green skull with a serpent tongue, the mark Death Eaters left behind whenever they had entered a building...wherever they had murdered...."

When Dumbledore arrives at Privet Drive one summer night to collect Harry Potter, his wand hand is blackened and shrivelled, but he does not reveal why. Secrets and suspicion are spreading through the wizarding world, and Hogwarts itself is not safe. Harry is convinced that Malfoy bears the Dark Mark: there is a Death Eater amongst them. Harry will need powerful magic and true friends as he explores Voldemort's darkest secrets, and Dumbledore prepares him to face his destiny....

About J.K. Rowling

Joanne Rowling was born in July 1965 at Yate General Hospital in England and grew up in Chepstow, Gwent where she went to Wyedean Comprehensive. Although she writes under the pen name J.K. Rowling, pronounced like rolling, her name when her first Harry Potter book was published was simply Joanne Rowling. Anticipating that the target audience of young boys might not want to read a book written by a woman, her publishers demanded that she use two initials, rather than her full name. As she had no middle name, she chose K as the second initial of her pen name, from her paternal grandmother Kathleen Ada Bulgen Rowling

As well as an OBE for services to children’s literature, J.K. Rowling is the recipient of numerous awards and honorary degrees including the Prince of Asturias Award for Concord, France’s Légion d’Honneur, and the Hans Christian Andersen Literature Award, and she has been a Commencement Speaker at Harvard University USA. She supports a wide number of charitable causes through her charitable trust Volant, and is the founder of Lumos, a charity working to transform the lives of disadvantaged children.

In 2012, J.K. Rowling published her first novel for adults, The Casual Vacancy (Little Brown), which has now been published in 44 languages.

J.K. Rowling has also written The Cuckoo's Calling (Little Brown), her first crime novel under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, which was published in 2013 and is to be translated into 37 languages.   A second Robert Galbraith novel is due to be published in 2014.
