BOOK TITLE: HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF BLOOD PRINCE (HP #6)
AUTHOR: J. K. ROWLING
GENRE: YOUNG ADULT FANTASY
There’s no way denying the fact that this is a great book. 6th book in the series where the Dark Lord is rising again. Hogwarts as well as the magical world is in grave danger. It’s up to Harry how he’ll save whatever that was in the prophecy. With Sirius’s death, Harry inherited all his property. But it left him in despair and he has never been this sad. Dumbledore comes to his uncle’s house to take him to complete a task where Harry had to persuade Slughorn to return to Hogwarts.
Back in Hogwarts, students are in danger. Parents are worried to leave their kids. There have been several attacks which were done by the death eaters by various curses.
This is the book where a detail of Voldemort’s past is given – who were his parents, how he became the dark lord. This book also introduced the reader to horcruxes.
My personal feeling after reading the book is that
1. I hate Snape and Malfoy
2. I will never ship Harry and Ginny and I also dislike Ginny
3. I simply couldn’t stand Dumbledore’s death
