Harry, Ron, and Hermione, having passed their O.W.L. level exams, start on their specialist N.E.W.T. courses. Sixth-year students learn to Apparate, losing a few eyebrows in the process. Teenagers flirt and fight and fall in love. Harry becomes captain of the Gryffindor Quidditch team, while Draco Malfoy pursues his own dark ends. And classes are as fascinating and confounding as ever, as Harry receives some extraordinary help in Potions from the mysterious Half-Blood Prince.

Most importantly, Dumbledore and Harry work together to uncover the full and complex story of a boy once named Tom Riddle—the boy who became Lord Voldemort. Like Harry, he was the son of one Muggle-born and one Wizarding parent, raised unloved, and a speaker of Parseltongue. But the similarities end there, as the teenaged Riddle became deeply interested in the Dark objects known as Horcruxes: objects in which a wizard can hide part of his soul, if he dares splinter that soul through murder.

Harry must use all the tools at his disposal to draw a final secret out of one of Riddle’s teachers, the sly Potions professor Horace Slughorn. Finally Harry and Dumbledore hold the key to the Dark Lord’s weaknesses... until a shocking reversal exposes Dumbledore’s own vulnerabilities, and casts Harry’s—and Hogwarts’s—future in shadow. 



I can’t get over that ending, the last few chapters. At this moment, I have a lot emotions going through me, despite being a re-read. That last few chapters get to me every time. I think that HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF BLOOD PRINCE Is one of the most emotional deaths, for me. I was sad when Sirus died too, but with Dumbledore, I feel as I formed an attachment to character through the series. He was always there, and I loved him from start. Now he’s not. Dumbledore cannot be gone, can he? It’s question I found myself asking every time that I re-read HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF BLOOD PRINCE . I can’t even seem to imagine it, not without Dumbledore in the series. I already miss him. He’s one of the characters from the book that will stay with me, for years to come. If I did not dislike Snape before, after what happened, after what he done, my dislike turned to hate. He betrayed Dumbledore. He trusted him. Dumbledore’s funeral had me going, good thing I was in my room when I read that part. I can’t picture Hogwarts, not without Dumbledore in it, even if it reopens, I know that it won’t be the same.

As for Draco, I always disliked him. Now, I am more like Harry I dislike him, at same time feeling pity towards him. I know that he was most likely got forced into this, due to fact that Draco’s father got caught and was in Azkaban. That’s why Draco was having such hard time about it, I don’t believe that he wanted to kill Dumbledore, but Voldermort gave him no choice. Voldemort is not who you say no to. He threatened to kill him, his family. I know it sounds like I feel sorry for Draco, and I do a bit. I can’t imagine how afraid he must been. Then seeing Snape kill Dumbledore. I’m curious what’s going to happen with him now, considering that he couldn’t complete his task. Even if Snape managed to kill him, I can’t imagine that Voldermort is happy with Draco, since he couldn’t seem to finish the only task that he was assighed to do. The emotions were so well displayed in the book, I could feel Draco’s fear, hesitation when he attempted to kill Dumbledore. Now, if Snape did not appear, Dumbledore might still be alive, I don’t think Draco would killed him.

Half Blood Prince, I had this feeling that there was something off about him from moment that Harry came across his copy of book in Potions. But never did I even picture Snape as the Half Blood Prince. No wonder that he figured out that something was up when he used the spell on Draco, and fact that he was getting best marks in Potions. If I were him, I would get suspicious too. I was in shock though, like Harry was I am sure. Fact that he been using Snape’s ideas all this time.

I loved the private lesson’s that Harry had with Dumbledore, I felt like we got a better glimpse at Tom Riddle’s life and how he became Voldermort. I believe that the bond between Dumbledore and Harry grew stronger then. It’s too bad that it got cut so tragically. There is still a part of me that cannot get over Dumbledore’s death.

HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF BLOOD PRINCE, is my favorite out of whole series, at least so far. A part of me did not want finish this book because I knew there was only one more book left after this one. Another magical edition to the Harry Potter series.
