      J. K Rowling, the first dollar billionaire by selling books, has now completed and published the Harry Potter series. After the brilliant and gripping stories of the forth book (Goblet of fire) and the fifth book (Order of the Phoenix), the sixth book (Half- blood Prince) is not quite up to the high standards it normally is.

      In fact the first half of the book is a waste of time and the true genius of J. K Rowling’s work only


      shows in the last ± 250pgs.

      By creating an element of suspense, which was done by not revealing the identity of the Half- blood Prince right until the last quarter of the book, it makes readers continue. Because this tactic is used, everything else in the book becomes boring and tedious.

      Another thing is first time readers of Harry Potter will have to start from the beginning of the series because the sixth book contains lots of ...


      • information that continues from past books. The plot: The book begins as always with Harry trapped in his bedroom at the Dursley’s.

        He-who-must-not-be-named is back and so when Harry arrives at Hogwarts (magic school) there is a lot of talk. Dumbledore is now teaching Harry about Voldemort’s past, as it will help them fight him.

        The half- blood Prince is introduced when Harry finds a book owned by him. Half way through the book Harry learns about

        Horcruxes, a dark art of cutting your soul into pieces in order to live again after death.

        This is where things become really interesting. After learning this, Dumbledore and Harry set out to find and destroy the Horcruxes.

        Meanwhile, Death Eaters (Voldemorts followers) have swarmed the castle at Hogwarts. In the end Snape kills Dumble-dore, and gets away with the other Death Eaters and the book finishes with the funeral.

        A very sad ending because it seems that evil has triumphed over good.
