Description

Product Description

As the Harry Potter sequence draws to a close, Harry''s most dangerous adventure yet is just beginning . . . and it starts July 16, 2005.

We could tell you, but then we''d have to Obliviate your memory.

Amazon.com Review

The long-awaited, eagerly anticipated, arguably over-hyped Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has arrived, and the question on the minds of kids, adults, fans, and skeptics alike is, "Is it worth the hype?" The answer, luckily, is simple: yep. A magnificent spectacle more than worth the price of admission, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will blow you away. However, given that so much has gone into protecting the secrets of the book (including armored trucks and injunctions), don''t expect any spoilers in this review. It''s much more fun not knowing what''s coming--and in the case of Rowling''s delicious sixth book, you don''t want to know. Just sit tight, despite the earth-shattering revelations that will have your head in your hands as you hope the words will rearrange themselves into a different story. But take one warning to heart: do not open Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince until you have first found a secluded spot, safe from curious eyes, where you can tuck in for a good long read. Because once you start, you won''t stop until you reach the very last page.

A darker book than any in the series thus far with a level of sophistication belying its genre, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince moves the series into murkier waters and marks the arrival of Rowling onto the adult literary scene. While she has long been praised for her cleverness and wit, the strength of Book 6 lies in her subtle development of key characters, as well as her carefully nuanced depiction of a community at war. In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, no one and nothing is safe, including preconceived notions of good and evil and of right and wrong. With each book in her increasingly remarkable , fans have nervously watched J.K. Rowling raise the stakes; gone are the simple delights of butterbeer and enchanted candy, and days when the worst ailment could be cured by a bite of chocolate. A series that began as a colorful lark full of magic and discovery has become a dark and deadly war zone. But this should not come as a shock to loyal readers. Rowling readied fans with Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by killing off popular characters and engaging the young students in battle. Still, there is an unexpected bleakness from the start of Book 6 that casts a mean shadow over Quidditch games, silly flirtations, and mountains of homework. Ready or not, the tremendous ending of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will leave stunned fans wondering what great and terrible events await in Book 7 if this sinister darkness is meant to light the way. --Daphne Durham

Why We Love Harry
Favorite Moments from the Series
There are plenty of reasons to love Rowling''s wildly popular series--no doubt you have several dozen of your own. Our list features favorite moments, characters, and artifacts from the first five books. Keep in mind that this list is by no means exhaustive (what we love about Harry could fill ten books!) and does not include any of the spectacular revelatory moments that would spoil the books for those (few) who have not read them. Enjoy.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer''s Stone

* Harry''s first trip to the zoo with the Dursleys, when a boa constrictor winks at him.
* When the Dursleys'' house is suddenly besieged by letters for Harry from Hogwarts. Readers learn how much the Dursleys have been keeping from Harry. Rowling does a wonderful job in displaying the lengths to which Uncle Vernon will go to deny that magic exists.
* Harry''s first visit to Diagon Alley with Hagrid. Full of curiosities and rich with magic and marvel, Harry''s first trip includes a trip to Gringotts and Ollivanders, where Harry gets his wand (holly and phoenix feather) and discovers yet another connection to He-Who-Must-No-Be-Named. This moment is the reader''s first full introduction to Rowling''s world of witchcraft and wizards.
* Harry''s experience with the Sorting Hat.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

* The de-gnoming of the Weasleys'' garden. Harry discovers that even wizards have chores--gnomes must be grabbed (ignoring angry protests "Gerroff me! Gerroff me!"), swung about (to make them too dizzy to come back), and tossed out of the garden--this delightful scene highlights Rowling''s clever and witty genius.
* Harry''s first experience with a Howler, sent to Ron by his mother.
* The Dueling Club battle between Harry and Malfoy. Gilderoy Lockhart starts the Dueling Club to help students practice spells on each other, but he is not prepared for the intensity of the animosity between Harry and Draco. Since they are still young, their minibattle is innocent enough, including tickling and dancing charms.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

* Ron''s attempt to use a telephone to call Harry at the Dursleys''.
* Harry''s first encounter with a Dementor on the train (and just about any other encounter with Dementors). Harry''s brush with the Dementors is terrifying and prepares Potter fans for a darker, scarier book.
* Harry, Ron, and Hermione''s behavior in Professor Trelawney''s Divination class. Some of the best moments in Rowling''s books occur when she reminds us that the wizards-in-training at Hogwarts are, after all, just children. Clearly, even at a school of witchcraft and wizardry, classes can be boring and seem pointless to children.
* The Boggart lesson in Professor Lupin''s classroom.
* Harry, Ron, and Hermione''s knock-down confrontation with Snape.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

* Hermione''s disgust at the reception for the veela (Bulgarian National Team Mascots) at the Quidditch World Cup. Rowling''s fourth book addresses issues about growing up--the dynamic between the boys and girls at Hogwarts starts to change. Nowhere is this more plain than the hilarious scene in which magical cheerleaders nearly convince Harry and Ron to jump from the stands to impress them.
* Viktor Krum''s crush on Hermione--and Ron''s objection to it.
* Malfoy''s "Potter Stinks" badge.
* Hermione''s creation of S.P.E.W., the intolerant bigotry of the Death Eaters, and the danger of the Triwizard Tournament. Add in the changing dynamics between girls and boys at Hogwarts, and suddenly Rowling''s fourth book has a weight and seriousness not as present in early books in the series. Candy and tickle spells are left behind as the students tackle darker, more serious issues and take on larger responsibilities, including the knowledge of illegal curses.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

* Harry''s outburst to his friends at No. 12 Grimmauld Place. A combination of frustration over being kept in the dark and fear that he will be expelled fuels much of Harry''s anger, and it all comes out at once, directly aimed at Ron and Hermione. Rowling perfectly portrays Harry''s frustration at being too old to shirk responsibility, but too young to be accepted as part of the fight that he knows is coming.
* Harry''s detention with Professor Umbridge. Rowling shows her darker side, leading readers to believe that Hogwarts is no longer a safe haven for young wizards. Dolores represents a bureaucratic tyrant capable of real evil, and Harry is forced to endure their private battle of wills alone.
* Harry and Cho''s painfully awkward interactions. Rowling clearly remembers what it was like to be a teenager.
* Harry''s Occlumency lessons with Snape.
* Dumbledore''s confession to Harry.

Magic, Mystery, and Mayhem: A Conversation with J.K. Rowling

"I am an extraordinarily lucky person, doing what I love best in the world. I’m sure that I will always be a writer. It was wonderful enough just to be published. The greatest reward is the enthusiasm of the readers." --J.K. Rowling

A Few Words from Mary GrandPré

"When I illustrate a cover or a book, I draw upon what the author tells me; that''s how I see my responsibility as an illustrator. J.K. Rowling is very descriptive in her writing--she gives an illustrator a lot to work with. Each story is packed full of rich visual descriptions of the atmosphere, the mood, the setting, and all the different creatures and people. She makes it easy for me. The images just develop as I sketch and retrace until it feels right and matches her vision." Check out from illustrator Mary GrandPré.

From School Library Journal

Grade 5 Up–Opening just a few weeks after the previous book left off, the penultimate entry in the series is, as the author foretold, the darkest and most unsettling yet. The deeds of Voldemort''s Death Eaters are spreading even to the Muggle world, which is enshrouded in a mist caused by Dementors draining hope and happiness. Harry, turning 16, leaves for Hogwarts with the promise of private lessons with Dumbledore. No longer a fearful boy living under the stairs, he is clearly a leader and increasingly isolated as rumors spread that he is the Chosen One, the only individual capable of defeating Voldemort. Two attempts on students'' lives, Harry''s conviction that Draco Malfoy has become a Death Eater, and Snape''s usual slimy behavior add to the increasing tension. Yet through it all, Harry and his friends are typical teens, sharing homework and messy rooms, rushing to classes and sports practices, and flirting. Ron and Hermione realize their attraction, as do Harry and Ginny. Dozens of plot strands are pulled together as the author positions Harry for the final book. Much information is cleverly conveyed through Dumbledore''s use of a Pensieve, a device that allows bottled memories to be shared by Harry and his beloved professor as they apparate to various locations that help explain Voldemort''s past. The ending is heart wrenching. Once again, Rowling capably blends literature, mythology, folklore, and religion into a delectable stew. This sixth book may be darker and more difficult, but Potter fans will devour it and begin the long and bittersweet wait for the final installment. –Connie Tyrrell Burns, Mahoney Middle School, South Portland, ME

From Booklist

*Starred Review* With the Harry Potter Express chugging closer to its final destination, the sixth book in the series gets down to business. No more diversions about the welfare of house elves or the intricacies of Quidditch. This penultimate offering is more about tying up loose ends and fleshing out the backstory. Harry and the gang are back at Hogwarts, but the mood is grim. The wizard community is now fully aware that evil has returned, and the citizenry is afraid. Harry has been left bereft by the death of Sirius Black, and there are more killings to come. In a powerful early scene, readers learn that a pivotal figure is seemingly not to be trusted, yet throughout there are hints that he or she is a double agent. Later Harry becomes entangled with a former student known as the Half-Blood Prince, having accidentally acquired the prince''s Potions textbook, but this turns out to be a mixed blessing. Rowling also devotes time to a carefully crafted telling of the story of Lord Voldemort''s early life, which Harry and Dumbledore piece together by plucking other people''s memories. Rowling is at the top of her game here. For those able to reach just beyond the engrossing tale, there is commentary relevant to today: how governments offer false security about perilous situations and how being in a constant state of war affects people''s behavior. Harry is almost 17 now, and this is a book for older readers, who will best understand the moral implications of his choices. Ilene Cooper

''Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince'': The Kirkus Review
Review Date: JULY 25, 2005
Category: NONE
Classification: ONLINE EXCLUSIVE
Revealed at last-now that the fog of whipped-up anticipation, secrecy, hints, threats, news stories of legal action, wild speculation, midnight-oil-burning and marketing smoke is thinning-the penultimate Potter sequel delivers, as have its predecessors, a tale worth the wait. Readers who felt a bit hammered by the adolescent rage coloring Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2003) will be relieved to find that Rowling has returned to the lighter tone of earlier episodes, though properly portentous events do swirl in the background, and, as promised: There Is a Death.

Harry enters his sixth year at Hogwarts knowing that he has a pivotal role to play in the now-open war against Voldemort, sure that Draco Malfoy is up to something, and more than a little conflicted by his attraction to Ginny Weasley, sidekick Ron''s suddenly not-so-little sister. Harry''s relationship to Dumbledore is entering a new phase, too, as under the kindly old wizard''s direct guidance, he begins taking trips through a series of magically preserved memories to explore his archenemy''s parentage and character.

Meanwhile, Harry''s glee at getting a leg up in Potions class thanks to a heavily annotated old textbook that once belonged to a mysterious "Half-Blood Prince" rivals his discomfort at being caught between Ron and Hermione, who are going through a rocky patch, and the horror of discovering that his new Defense Against the Dark Arts instructor is none other than hated, hateful Severus Snape. How could Dumbledore possibly insist, as he repeatedly does, that Snape is a trustworthy ally?

While charting teenage infatuations and friendships with a wry wit that occasionally tumbles into outright merriment, Rowling tucks in several revelations (notably, the secret to Voldemort''s seeming immortality), adds a dash of sympathy for Malfoy (of all people!), who does indeed turn out to be part of an ugly scheme, and further develops Snape''s role as a pivotal character. Then, after a heartrending test of Harry''s loyalty to Dumbledore, Rowling propels the plot to a climax that is-thanks to artful pre-pub preparation-tragic, but not uncomfortably shocking. This newest excursion into the Potterverse will leave readers pleased, amused, excited, scared, infuriated, delighted, sad, surprised, thoughtful-and likely wondering where Voldemort has got to, since he appears only in flashbacks. There''s no doubt, however, that he''ll figure prominently in what promises to be a spectacular finish.

From the Publisher

In the fifth and most recent book, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, the last chapter, titled "The Second War Begins," started:

    ''In a brief statement Friday night, Minister of Magic Cornelius Fudge confirmed that He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named has returned to this country and is active once more.

    "It is with great regret that I must confirm that the wizard styling himself Lord - well, you know who I mean - is alive among us again," said Fudge.''

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince takes up the story of Harry Potter''s sixth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry at this point in the midst of the storm of this battle of good and evil.

The author has already said that the Half-Blood Prince is neither Harry nor Voldemort. And most importantly, the opening chapter of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has been brewing in J.K. Rowling''s mind for 13 years.

About the Author

J.K. ROWLING is the author of the seven Harry Potter books, which were first published between 1997 and 2007. The enduringly popular adventures of Harry, Ron, and Hermione have sold over 500 million copies, been translated into over 80 languages, and made into eight blockbuster films. Alongside the Harry Potter series, she also wrote three short companion volumes ― Quidditch Through the Ages, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and The Tales of Beedle the Bard ― which were published in aid of Comic Relief and Lumos. In 2016, J.K. Rowling resumed Harry’s story in a stage play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which she wrote with playwright Jack Thorne and director John Tiffany, and which is now in theaters across the world. In the same year, she wrote the screenplay for the film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the first in a series featuring magizoologist Newt Scamander. She is also the author of a stand-alone novel for adults, The Casual Vacancy, and, under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, writes the Strike detective series. In 2020, J.K. Rowling returned to publishing for younger children with the fairy tale The Ickabog, the royalties from which she is donating to groups affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. She lives in Scotland with her family, and is at her happiest alone in a room, making things up.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is book 6 in the Harry Potter book series by J.K. Rowling. It is a thicker book than the previous books, and it is a lot heavier for sure. The quality of the book itself is excellent. Dust-jacket is very nice. Constructed same as the previous books. Story-wise, things just get more and more interesting that you can''t put the book down and don''t want to stop until you find out what is next after each page.

This is my favorite book of the entire series. It is very dark in some places, but the flashbacks into the past in where we learn so much about Voldemort or Tom Riddle are very interesting and engaging. Danger is everywhere. Everything seems to be at risk, and you just don’t know what will happen next. Nothing seems to be safe anymore. There is also a little romance, but tension as well. It’s a pretty big book. A lot of pages to read. But, I was able to read it over a weekend or so with determination.

There are so many plot lines in this book, and the pace does not let up from first page to the last page. There are new twists and turns. I cannot reveal without spoiling. This is definitely an excellent book.

I recommend this book for sure. It is priced fairly I think on Amazon. If you have Amazon Prime, the 2-day Free shipping is nice.

This is at least my fifth reading of this, easily my favorite book of the HP series. I get more out of each book upon every re-read, and this one especially. One of the great joys of the series, and especially of HBP, is the humor JKR manages to thread throughout the story, even as things are sad, or scary, or serious. The tiny references to Harry''s burgeoning affection for Ginny, the way Fred and George manage to slip in one-liners even as chaos is erupting around them, it always feels like a gift from the author. This book, maybe more than any of the others, also really takes the time for character development. This is the book where Hermione becomes one of the great female characters in fiction, and where Harry stops being the victim of constant happy accidents and starts making his own choices. Plus it''s just a really great mystery story! And ties in so importantly (obviously) with the overarching mythology.

I will always remember receiving this book the day it was published (July 2007, right?), a day I had to go to a wedding and also shop for a big dinner party. I hid the book under my seat at the wedding and kept turning the pages behind my ankles, only looking up at the ceremony every page or so. Then I had the book balanced on my shopping cart, blindly tossing vegetables and cans in as fast as I could. When I got home, I finished the rest of the book by 2am, texting with my sister, saying, "I''m on page xxx." We finished within a few minutes of each other, exchanging comments on what sobbing messes we were. Later that week, I was walking to lunch and saw a girl sitting in the sun outside of the bank (where she presumably worked). She had the book in her lap and her head in her hands, obviously on one of the sad, stressful final chapters. I wanted to just go over and give her a hug.

Holy crap. After I read "Order of the Phoenix" I stopped the series for about 6 months. That book was dreadful and I wasn''t even sure I wanted to keep reading. But I had to, I had come so far.

With "Half-blood I read it in a week. I couldn''t put it down! From the first freaking page this book was a million times better than the last one and at this point my favorite in the series.

Even with having for knowledge because I''m super late to reading the series, I still enjoyed every twist and turn with this book and I''m assuming the movie will upset me like they all have but the book was still delicious.

And I don''t care what anyone says, I REFUSE to believe that Snape is redeemable. But I guess I''ll just have to read "Deathly Hallows" to find out.

Despite the fact this is, by far, the longest book of the series, it is one of the best. My favorite is "The Goblet of Fire", but this one rivals that to be sure. Not certain if it was by design, but the maturity of the characters is interesting as they become one year older. For someone of "mature" age, one year means very little. However, the difference between 16 and 17 can be dramatic in terms of attitude, fortitude, and action. With each year, it seems that the voracity of challenges becomes more difficult and traumatic. This book is by far the most of each attribute. It also was a relief since I was less than thrilled with it''s predecessor (#5 - "Order of the Phoenix").

So if you wanna know Tom Riddle''s backround story THEN READ THIS BOOK. But your brain might explode if its to small.
(mine didn''t though).
And Harry and Ginny FINALLY get together! But then... tragedy strikes.... <SPOILER ALERT> DUMBLEDORE is killed by NONE other then SEVRUS SNAPE. IT IS SO DANG SAD. YOU WILL DEFINITELY CRY. RIP.

And so the Harry (being stubborn like usual ;) ) says he refuses to go back to Hogwarts if Dumbledore isn''t there. He plans to go to Godric Hollow to visit Jame''s and Lily''s graves and of course Hermione and Ron insist on going with him.

AND THEN TONKS AND LUPIN GET ENGAGED AND IT IS SO CUTE!!!!! Also in case your wondering Fleur and Bill''s wedding is in the next book. Oh and Bill gets bitten by a werewolf... but don''t worry he doesn''t turn into one because the wolf who bit him was human at that time.

And finally, if you love Harry Potter just as much as I do, I am going to recommend Keeper of the Lost Cities by Shannon Messenger, which is my other FAVE book series.

Bye! Thanks for reading!

Dementors breed!!?? I didn''t get THAT out of the movie! And the movie deviates even more from the book than previous movies. But, for this book, I like some of the action sequences and the ending better!

Again, I wonder how much JK Rowling participated in the screenwriting.

Even so, as in every book I''ve read that was subsequently made a movie, a great deal is explained as character''s thoughts and emotions are described in the text. Motives are not always evident to the viewer in a film scene but the author informs the reader.

This Episode 6 of the Harry Potter series sees the story of Tom Riddle and his metamorphosis into the Dark Lord Voldemort told through Dumbledore and Harry exploring memories through the Pensieve. There is the familiar formula to the book of the beginning with the Dursley''s, fun at The Burrow, confrontation with Draco Malfoy, and the usual magical lessons and interactions and romance with Harry''s school peers. Here there is a new teacher, Horace Slughorn, who takes the roll of Potions Master, whilst Snape gets his long coveted post of Defence Against the Dark Arts. Snape''s loyalties remain ever enigmatic and shifting, and the word ''Horcrux'' enters the English language. All in all at about 543 pages this is a considerable improvement over the even lengthier Goblet of Fire and the glacial Order of the Phoenix. There is more interest and action, the story grows darker and sets up a final conclusion for Episode 7. I thought this was one of the best in the series, and a return to form.

If a book could have more than five stars out of five, this would be the one.

Oh yes, oh yes oh yes!!! I could hurl a hundred superlatives at this book, most of which you''ve probably heard before, but they’d all be deserved. So, Harry Potter''s sixth year at Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry, and what a year. I like to think of this one as a history book: not one of those big boring books that goes on and on about a long forgotten civilisation, a King or a Queen, but a book about Harry''s past, his connection with Voldemort, and one that delves deep into the Dark Lord’s past, by way of memories in the pensieve in Dumbledore''s office; memories that the headmaster has spent many years collecting. Harry has inherited his god-father''s house and the vile elf, Kreacher, who he puts to good use following Draco Malfoy. Harry knows that Draco is up to something, he overheard him threatening the owner of Borgin and Burkes in Knockturn alley, he just doesn''t know what. There are potions to master, (somewhat helped by an old potions book he finds in the spares cupboard, annotated and proclaiming to be the property of the half-blood prince; there''s Snape to avoid, quidditch to play and an uncorrupted memory to extract from their new potions master, Professor Horace Slughorn; who taught Tom Riddle before he became Lord Voldemort. There are girls, there''s snogging and there''s Ginny Weasley, who Harry is starting to see in a different light. To top it all, there are Horcruxes to find, hidden objects that contain parts of Voldemort''s soul, and this is where these books are so clever. It is here, in book six, that we discover that Tom Riddle''s diary - which Harry destroyed in The Chamber of Secrets, (book two) - was in fact a Horcrux. Dumbledore has already destroyed another, Voldemort''s grandfather''s ring, and with Horace Slughorn relinquishing his untainted memory, they now know that they have four more to find, excluding the part of soul that resides in Voldemort himself. So, over five hundred pages in and the adventure begins, but Draco has succeeded in his task, Death Eaters have entered the school, the dark mark hangs heavy above the astronomy tower, Dumbledore is disarmed, Harry immobilised, Snape . . . I know that most of you already know the ending to this book, you''ve probably seen the film, but I put it to you, that unless you have read this book, you do not know the ending. The battle between the Death Eaters and The Order, Snape and Malfoy''s escape, the burning of Hagrid''s hut, and the most moving part of all, Dumbledore''s phoenix and its lament, echoing hauntingly through the corridors and classrooms of Hogwarts. If a book could have more than five stars out of five, this would be the one. Simply put, this book if stunning. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, here I come.

I just adore harry potter! The effort, mood lifting, smart read! Its sad but yet, brilliant. I honestly am obsessed with these books, they will NOT disappoint and if you can''t even be bothered to read this, What type of muggle are you!? Joanne Kathleen Rowling will of course go down in literature history, best read ever! Nobody can even create something as good as this, (cheap knock-off copys). I swear, us potter heads would want a whole new series about his new life, or his sons life of course! But there is the cursed child book but it''s in a play so its sort of weird and hard to read. Thanks for reading, Evie kennedy 9 years old
