In this book Albus Dumbledore, the headmaster of Hogwarts, prepares Harry Potter for the final battle to defeat Lord Voldemort. Harry is also suspicious that Draco Malfoy (also in Harry's year but in another house, Slytherin) is a Death Eater. I highly recommend this book to people liking adventures and mysteries!

I thought this book was really good, I rate it 5/5. My favourite person was Ginny because she is kind and she always stands up to people and for people. My favourite part was when Ginny and Harry kissed because Ginny had liked Harry for so long and Harry had feelings for Ginny as well. I would definitely recommend!

really sad book

23 Feb 2021

The book is amazing. Harry has gotten better in his Potion lessons with the help of a handy book that once belonged to an half blood prince. Its turns out that the half blood prince is exactly Prof. Snape. However, it was sad to read the part where one of the character falls to their death.

This fiction book was absolutely amazing. As shown on the front cover, it had amazing adventure and action. This book was about Harry Potter a young wizard with a lightning-shaped scar on his forehead, cast when an evil sorcerer named Voldemort had killed his parents and tried to kill him, and Dumbledore, the most powerful wizard and headmaster of Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry. Together they hunted for Horcruxes (an object which conceals a part of a person's soul, making them immortal) made by Voldemort. I would definitely recommend this book to someone.

I like this because Harry is brave when he is going to find the Horcrux and he's really brave because he going to do this and he's going to help Dumbledore find the Horcrux.

I absolutely adore this book because one page is enough to make so much suspense that once I started reading, it was impossible for me to stop even when my parents told me off for reading Harry Potter for too long! One chapter is enough to silence the naughtiest of classes.
This is my favourite book from the whole series and I am waiting to (hopefully) watch to movie.
If I have time, I will read this book again and again and again and again I recommend that everyone (whatever age you are) has a go at reading this book. I know that it is quite long but if you try your absolute best then you will finish this fantastic story in no time.

Harry Potter is not an ordinary boy, he is a wizard. There are so many different characters in the book. The saddest part was when Professor Dumbledore died because of a poisonous potion. The book is very exciting, Harry’s life is in danger from Voldemort, the death eaters and Malfoy. Everyone is in danger!

This is a very good book following on from the Order of the Phoenix. You need to be interested enough to enjoy it though. My favourite character was Hermione because she is extremely clever in this book (like always) and manages to work out who 'The Prince' is. I would recommend it.

This book shows that people you know can have a different side to them you might not know about until it is out there. It also shows even the greatest people you know have to die in the end

Harry potter and the half blood prince was epic!

There are loads of mystery and suspension

There is also a twist in the end that will make you sad as one of the person who helped harry battle voldemort dies.

I like this book because it was the only book in the Harry potter series when he leaves hogwarts and he is properly supervised

03 Dec 2020

I thought it was a great book, full of magic, though it was sad when Dumbledore died.
Harry Potter is my favourite character. He is loyal to his friends and a very good person.
I would definitely recommend it.

It was brilliantly written. It had a fw complex words. My favourite character was Croocshanks. I would recommend it to hard chapter book readers who like spine tinglers.
