Book Review: Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling

I wanted to reread the sixth book before the release of Deathly Hallows next month, and I tried to slow down and absorb a bit more of the twists and turns than when I last read it - the day it was released and I was racing to see what happened!

This is clearly a "penultimate" book - lots of build up, not a lot of payoff, but for a difficult ending and the "gearing up" of the gang for a good vs. evil showdown.

I can't really reveal much without spoilers if you haven't read, but I was satisfied reading this, knowing the conclusion was only weeks away!

Can't wait for #7, and can't wait for the new movie!
