Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Title: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Author: J. K. Rowling
Genre: Fantasy
Rating: @@@@@
Pages: 652
Price: $16 - $30, depending on where you buy it.

Summary: Harry’s back and ready for action. He’s a far cry from the Harry of book one, and this story shows it. Lots of romance, lessons with Dumbledore, and a potions book crawling with tips from the Half-Blood Prince make this particular book a definite older-level read. And why is Moaning Myrtle comforting a sobbing Malfoy?

Opinion: This book is very different. Not worse...just not what I expected. The sudden Harry/Ginny, Ron/Lavender, Hermione/McLaggen, and Ron/Hermione and all the “snogging” in the halls seemed gossipy, like a normal teen book. The addition of all the new themes – Horcruxes, romance, etc – made me think it was more like an amazing fanfic than the genuine thing.

Hey! Sorry about the formatting problem. My computer has been doing this weird thing on all my e-mails and posts, and I can't fix it without changing the format. When I try to edit a typo or something, the post shows up about three inches down from the title. It's really weird.
