    This remains one of my top favorite HP books The Voldemort origins the DumbledoreHarry business Draco's mission the Snape reveal and the moment the trio decide to not return to Hogwarts so they can stop Voldemort once and for all It's a book that manages to balance so much darkness with light so evident too in the last line #AdamRereadsHP

    I'm not sure why but this one took me completely by surprise I was expecting this installment to be mainly filler to get us to the Deathly Hallows but so much happened here that I must have forgotten from the movie The Half Blood prince was considerably darker than the previous 5 books and I just adore how this series has progressed and grown just like most of its readers have Obviously I knew what the big reveal was prior to finishing the book due to my viewing the films before but it didn't take away from the experience the novel had to offer I have this nervous lump in my throat knowing that the next book is the final one but am simultaneously excited to finally read what the films surely have left out surrounding the conclusion of the series

    I was first introduced to Harry Potter in a Children’s Lit class in college I had resisted this popular phenomenon until I was forced to pick it up for a grade and Book 1 was short enough that I could read it in the course of 2 hours I have to admit I wasn’t impressed to any extent nor did I dislike the experience but I was critical on grounds of its being derivative even if reading the first led to reading the second After all if I was bored and looking for something light I could do worse than a fantasy about a child wizard who fights evil with his friends But it was really the third book with its increasing darkness that took me in and made me a fan With a movie coming out for Order of Phoenix and Deathly Hallows on the horizon I decided I would reread Half Blood Prince I figured it would take four sittings of course with its 600 pages but time does fly when reading this one and I’ve come to the conclusion that this is my favorite so far What I wouldn’t have been willing to admit in college that I’m perfectly comfortable saying now is that JK Rowling is a fantastic storyteller; she writes with great clarity wit and humor; and she’s created a cast of loveable characters with whom most people due to the common experience of growing up can relate closely That said the reason for my preference for the 6th book is that it’s the most emotionally rich in the series Here we get the backstory of Voldemort spoiler alert through a series of flashbacks coming in HP by way of magically extracted memories and in this way we come to understand the villain’s similarities and differences with our hero After all the villain has to have reasons for committing heinous acts and until now we don’t know what these areVoldemort is from a once powerful wizard family reduced to poverty that lives in a dilapidated hovel on the edge of a small town wary of outsiders and their main point of pride is their pure blood the lineage having cross bred for generations so as not to pollute the line Voldemort’s mother lives with her father and brother and yearns for the love of a nonmagical man “muggle” in this world and when her father and brother are arrested she uses the opportunity to bewitch her beloved and run off She ends up pregnant the man deserts her and she dies while giving birth to her half wizard half muggle son thus making him an orphan like HarryFaulkner anyone?But whereas Harry comes to Hogwarts and befriends Ron and Hermione creating unity and strength through positive emotions Voldemort when growing in the orphanage shuns other children torturing them at times without the awareness of adults and stealing their possessions What fuels him is his hatred of his beginnings his mother’s weakness at having died like a common person despite being a witch and the “muggle” blood inherited from his father Over the course of his time at Hogwarts Voldemort charming as only evil can be learns to win over people as a means to an end and disguise his insidious purposes but he never befriends anyone He moves through his hatred further away from many of the emotions that drive Harry namely the desire to protect the people he loves and avenge his parents’ deathWith Dumbledore’s help in exploring Voldemort’s past Harry begins to understand that he’s come to be where he is through the choices he’s made that his greatest strengths are an alliance with his friends and that this might hold the key to destroying his enemy a fact that’s made all the poignant when Dumbledore in an all out assault on Hogwarts by Voldemort’s Death Eaters is killed at the end The stakes are higher than before the action and pace increase as the conclusion draws near and things are looking darker than ever which is the setup that any fan wants when the end is looming and it leaves us with the uestion How will our hero prevail?

    I’m yet to mention one of the most important characters in this series in a review I’m of course talking about Severus SnapeSeverus the unsung hero Severus who sacrificed his own soul Severus who loved another than life itself Severus the half blood prince the truth about his character was and will likely always be one of the most surprising twists I’ve ever read in fiction The set up is all in this book
