This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
When Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince opens, the war against Voldemort has begun. The Wizarding world has split down the middle, and as the casualties mount, the effects even spill over onto the Muggles. Dumbledore is away from Hogwarts for long periods, and the Order of the Phoenix has suffered grievous losses. And yet, as in all wars, life goes on.
The book is good, the author is amazing, I’m just going to give you some reasons why it’s good because language wise and plot wise there’s absolutely nothing to put a finger on.
Harry and Ginny were adorable. However, seeing as I’ve just read the Hathaway series by Lisa Kleypas I can honest to god say that J. K. Rowling sucks at writing anything remotely romantic. Luckily, for me, she ended the chapters as things were starting to heat up.
Hermione isn’t my favorite character of the bunch and she really didn’t shine much in the story but in a way that was a good thing because she tends to be a little stuffy.
I like the development I see in Ginny, she’s really come a long way since the start of the series. I think it’s amazing to see such a clear change it just shows the skill J. K. Rowling possesses.
My most favorite part of the entire series combined is Fred and George’s shop. It took the read in a complete different direction, away from all the Goth and horror.
Hogwarts has rather been in the background for a while now, but in this installment, it comes to life. Like in the third book, Prisoner of Azkaban it’s become more a part of the story and it feels like a real place now.
Harry was great in this book. Sure I’ve always liked Harry, but particular in this book. In every book he has showed us a new side to him, and in this book, he’s showing all those character traits altogether. I love the attention to detail it took.
J. K. Rowling has a thing with endings. They always end with a bang, and this is no exception. Actually, this might be the biggest game changer of all endings! My god!
I had an amazing time with this book, every book had something special about it and in a way, and they are all my favorite, lol. I love how much Draco, Snape and Voldemort is a part of this storyline.
