Darker, more intense than #1 and #2--combined. A true must-read.   (2011-09-20)

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban reveals another major character: Sirius Black, a character convicted of a magical murder...and who has a mysterious, close connection with Harry himself.  This is much darker than #1 and #2, and much better, even.  Even more truths are uncovered....

Serdecznie polecam książkę. Jest ona bardzo odrębna od reszty sagi o Harry'm Potterze. Harry odkrywa, że jednak posiada jakąś rodzinę, przestaje się tak bać, dzieciaki trochę dorastają, nagle stają twarzą w twarz z historią sprzed lat - przyjaciółmi rodziców Harry'ego, którzy...

Voldemort (you know, the dark, creepy wizard that gives the series a plot--without spoiling anything, anyway) is rising in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, a much darker, much more magical sequel to Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.  This is precisely twice...

I was fascinated by how J.K. Rowling--a woman on English welfare--was so well-educated and so brilliant that she could compile all the mythology she had ever learned about and twist it all into Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.  Yep--everything from Fluffy the Three-Headed Dog to...

J.K. Rowling worked her way up to pure brilliance and perfection with Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and she tried to end the series on a strong note with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, but if anything, this is one of the least engaging books of the entire saga....

This was one of the least engaging books of the series.  It's still worth reading, though only if you've reading the first, second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth entries in the series.  Four stars.

Een geweldig goed boek, de 6e over Harry Potter! Nu moet ik eerlijk zeggen dat ik een beetje zat te wachten op actie, in de andere delen van de Harry Potter serie gebeurd veel meer en gebeurd er sneller wat... Maar eveneens een prima boek over de tovenaarsleerling! In dit deel komt Harry achter geheimen...

This post is not so much a review of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J. K. Rowling as an acknowledement of my having read it twice. The first time I read it I was still inclined to think that Severus Snape was going to prove to be an ally in the end. If he was trusted by Albus Dumbledore, I...

Ends on a high   (2012-05-21)

The book starts off a little slowly, and spends an awful lot of time building up the "tension" before finally letting loose in the last half. Some of the most fun is finding out the fate of certain characters.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, after four previous entries, is still great and spellbinding.  This one, even at 870 pages (in the American edition, at least), does not even seem overly long, though it does take a good amount of sitting-time to read it.  And once again,...
