Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Young-adult fiction by J. K. Rowling


The war against Voldemort is not going well; even the Muggles have been affected. Dumbledore is absent from Hogwarts for long stretches of time, and the Order of the Phoenix has already suffered losses.

And yet . . . as with all wars, life goes on. Sixth-year students learn to Apparate. Teenagers flirt and fight and fall in love. Harry receives some extraordinary help in Potions from the mysterious Half-Blood Prince. And with Dumbledore's guidance, he seeks out the full, complex story of the boy who became Lord Voldemort -- and thus finds what may be his only vulnerability.

Essential reading.

Von allen Büchern der Reihe finde ich diesen am schwächsten! Die Ausflüge mit Dumbledore bringen kaum neues zutage, die figurenentwicklung stagniert, insbesondere malfoy und snape (ein charakter mit sehr viel potenzial) bleiben eher blass. Auch verstehe ich nicht warum harry fast keine gedanken mehr an seinen getöteten patenonkel verschwendet, später mit Dumbledore wird es das gleiche sein, ich finde dass nimmt den büchern die großen gefühle und den tiefgang.

I have only read the last three Harry Potter books. This one was my least favorite out of them, but still awesome, very important if you are fond of the series.
