Slightly lesser than POA, but still brilliant, dark, magical.   (2011-09-20)

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...

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...

The twist of events brings us to the edge of our seats.  A different Harry Potter adventure!  Kids would never like to keep the book down.

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.

The longest book of the series. ALMOST the best.   (2011-09-20)

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,...

Rowling Does It Again   (2008-06-20)

Once again, Rowling writes a phenomenal book for all to enjoy. I have read all of the Harry Potter novels dozens of times, and yet, this is still my favorite novel. Many of my friends dislike this novel or believed it to be too slow. However, that is what I love about this book. The reader discovers...

        这本书是哈利波特系列的最后一本,所有的谜团都被揭开,所有的战斗都有了结局,所有人都有了一个适合他们的归宿,记得当初看的时候花了三天就看完了,纵使有那么多的不舍,但不得不佩服JK.Rowling叙述故事的能力,扣人心弦,滴水不漏,当然最让人佩服的是她天马行空的想象力。我们这一代和哈利一同成长,一同经历各种成长中的快乐和伤痛,所以这是一本特别有共鸣的书,我永远都会是哈利波特系列的忠实粉丝。

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, the first obviously called for (by the final chapter of #1, that is), is just as brilliant, slightly less engaging, a little more original than Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.  Some of the stuff we wondered (or at least should have...

Extraordinary secrets are revealed in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince--not the good, the bad, and the ugly; but rather the spectacular, the sad, and the spectacularly sad/sadly spectacular.  I won't give anything away--if you read it, you'll understand how hard it is, even...

This long-awaited, final volume in the wildly-popular Harry Potter series is short on neither pages nor adventure.  Nearly all our questions are answered, and many more are raised, pointing to potential future volumes (and revenue streams) for author J.K. Rowling.  There is so much history...

I thought that this book was phenomenal!!!! Although some peole may complain of the lack of action or motion foward in the middle of the book, I believed that part to be very telling of the different aspects of the three principle characters. Harry Potter fans will not be disappointed with this amazing...
