Hello! Yes, you read that right. This is a spoiler-free review for this book. This review is only spoiler-free for those who have read the rest of the series, but not this one. Please do not stay if you haven’t read books 1-5 yet.
“It is the middle of the summer, but there is an unseasonal mist pressing against the windowpanes. Harry Potter is waiting nervously in his bedroom at the Dursleys’ house in Privet Drive for a visit from Professor Dumbledore himself. One of the last times he saw the Headmaster was in a fierce one-to-one duel with Lord Voldemort, and Harry can’t quite believe that Professor Dumbledore will actually appear at the Dursleys’ of all places. Why is the Professor coming to visit him now? What is it that cannot wait until Harry returns to Hogwarts in a few weeks’ time? Harry’s sixth year at Hogwarts has already got off to an unusual start, as the worlds of Muggle and magic start to intertwine…”
I just did the synopsis because I am pretty much incapable of effectively summing up the plot without spoiling anything. I really just wanted to talk about my thoughts on the book.
I was very bored at first, but ended up really enjoying this book. This book is the definition of sexual tension. It was killing me! I was very frustrated with the characters for reasons that I can’t say and the ending completely shattered me. I was crying and I was in school so you can imagine the looks I got. I would have enjoyed this much more if I hadn’t known who would die and who the Half-Blood Prince was. I was spoiled majorly and that really hindered my entire enjoyment of it. But it was still a fabulous installment in this series and I am looking forward to reading the final book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
