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...

A great, sometimes overly-long, and overall magical beginning.   (2011-09-20)

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...

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...

After the first book, I wasn't convinced. I've met many others who felt the same way, many of whom dropped the series then and there. If you feel that way, don't. Give it another shot. Rowling grows as a storyteller. Book two is much better and by book three you won't want to put them down until the...

        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。

This book was horrible. I hated it that Dumbeldore died. I don't know if I want to read number seven in fear of finding out who else will die.

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...

Who would have thought that this would be the one chapter where everything is destroyed for Harry? It sure wasn't the fans! Yes, this is a story that will keep you on your toes every page to the end. This book has everything from expense, drama, betrayal, deceit, and just about everything else that is...
