Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Book Review


Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince By: J.K. Rowling

            This book is about a 16 year old boy named Harry Potter and his friends Hermione Granger, Ronald Weasley, Ginny Weasley, Luna Lovegood, and Neville Longbottom going into their 6th year at Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry.  Lord Voldemort has risen, and is at war with the Ministry of Magic. In this book, Albus Dumbledore and Harry try to collect the remaining pieces of Voldemort’s soul.  Dumbledore is also trying to prepare Harry for the greatest battle in all of Wizard history, overcoming Voldemort.   Harry is also keeping a close eye on Draco Malfoy, who has been acting odd lately.  Harry got a potions book which had notes by “The Half Blood Prince.”   Hermione wants to find out, who is this half-blood prince?

            This book has lots of words, I found it a little hard and boring to understand the beginning, but it got easier to understand as I read on.  The author used mystery to keep you in suspense and to keep you amazed about all the magic in the book.  I found the end of the book to be the most exciting.  It has an exciting twist!  This book would be good for ages 10 and up because it involves lots of magic, adventure, and mystery.  I would recommend this book to my friends.
