Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Book 4)
5 stars of course!


Again a masterpiece of writing! I love all the Harry Potter books, although the second still has to be my favourite, the twists the turns the excitement,drama, sadness, hatred etc etc Soooo many emotions in one "childrens" book its amazing! I'm 16 and i can still be as enthusiastic about these books as my 11 year old brother! You won't regret reading any of these books, and if you do you are very strange indeed!

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Book 6)
Excellent penultimate book


I've just finished reading Rowling's latest installment of the Harry Potter series, and although I believe it isn't my "favorite" of the series, she has craftily set the stage for the final book. HBP is, indeed, a dark book, but like so many before, she weaves humor into the dialogue so that you don't feel heavy while reading the book. Even as HBP draws to a close--but not really--we are filled with a sense of determined hope for the final installment. Harry's character contrasts significantly with the more irrational traits we read in "Phoenix", and it is this character development Rowling has written so profoundly in this story. Even her writing style has matured--her choice of words and situations mirrors the changes her characters are going through.

This was an excellent book, despite being the darkest so far. I am left with a number of questions that will be answered in 7, but have also come to understand a great deal more through HBP. Readers of this book, despite many not liking how things work out, will be invigorated through Rowling's writing once again.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Book 5)
Great outing of Harry and the gang.


This is the darkest chapter in the Harry Potter saga yet, although there is still a healthy dose of humor. The Order of the Poenix is a group of wizards who fought Voldemort, when he was last in power. Harry meets them after he fights of dementors that attacked him and his cousin Dudley, which subsequently lands him in trouble with the Ministry of Magic. Harry has to attend a hearing about his imprper use of magic at the Ministry. Upon his arrival at Hogwarts Harry finds that a new defense against the Dark Arts teacher has been installed named Delores Umbridge who makes Snape look like a pussycat in comparison.
My favorite part of the book is the DA or Dumbledore's Army , a group of students who band together to learn Defense against the Dark Arts from Harry, and also I suspect to fight the power of umbridge who becomes more and more tyrannical as the book goes on. The power that Umbridge attains is truly frightening and serves a powerful reminder of how evil absolute power can be. Sadly one of Harry's supporters is killed in the struggle against Voldemort:( The ministry of Magic is depicted in the book as a cold organization and Fudge becomes quite frieghtening. This is a great book and will leave Harry fans wating eagerly for the next book.

HANG ON A MINUTE! (AND LISTEN UP)


Before you start your review on this book, think carefully about what you say so you won't look like a complete ignoramus. Anyone who says this book is UNREALISTIC, is in for a big shock. IT'S FANTASY - OF COURSE IT'S UNREALISTIC. Though this book was double the size of Book 3 and took a while to get started, when it does, you CANNOT put it down. Harry is just as adorably confused as before (even more so, with the introduction of Cho) Ron is just as degraded and envious as always (watch out for sparks between the 2!)and Hermione (how the HECK do you say her name?) is just as brainy and intense as before (new word - S.P.E.W). You can expect that little you-know-what Draco Malfoy to be as hideous as his name and his clonies, Crabbe and Goyle (what convenient names) to be as lamebrained as always. Rita Skeeter is a real WITCH and Hagrid gets a taste of romance. For all Quidditch fans - you can look forward to Harry being on the sidelines in this book, as he cheers on Ireland in the Quidditch World Cup, coming to you at a lovely deserted moor. With Anti-Muggle charms and the introduction of Portkeys, you would expect nothing to go wrong. But expect just the opposite! The only thing I can't understand is why they have a Muggle smack dab in the centre of this. You'll know what I'm talking about when you read the book. A nice, new touch to the Hogwarts scene is Rita Skeeter, reporter for the Daily Prophet. The book is filled with her articles, made very untruthful by her Quick-Quotes Quill. Three of our favorite characters get dragged through the mud! Ah, l'amore! Finally, Harry is acting like a normal boy, having set his eyes on Cho, fellow Ravenclaw Seeker, and a fifth year. Three new words - Auror, Death-Eater and the Dark Mark. Three new magic words - Priori Incantatem, the Pensieve and Veritaserum. Also, the return of Padfoot and Wormtail.Filled to the brim with new things, this book will be read and reread despite its size. Enjoy!

Ultimate Unofficial Guide to the Mysteries of Harry Potter
The best overview of the Harry Potter books.


I got this book in a unique way. The author asked for some people to help review a project. What I got was this book. I must say of the books I have read this has all the details that the others have and more. If you have read the books its good at showing you details you might have missed. It translates allot of the names to bring out some unique results. If you just started the books its great to be able to read a chapter then read the review of the chapter you can see what you missed it. Her ideas in the last sections where she has suggestions on future books is a real eye opener even if I think differently.

Best one of them Yet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


As a parent, I usually read the books my kids are going to read so I know what they are reading and interested in. This series is charming, inventive, fun and continues to improve. The books are very engaging. My older son is trying to read them faster than I can read to my younger son at night. It's neck and neck. We are very eager for the next installment. We really enjoy the continuing characters -- My older son would love to have a Professor Lupin at his school!!

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Book 6)
Pleasantly Surprised


Having read previous five books and realizing there were still 2 more to come, I predicted a "filler" book was in order, leaving the main show-down for the last book. I read the beginning pages with apprehension, but instantly found myself immersed in, not the wizarding world, but the average Joe human (muggle) world. The beginning chapter explains the relationship that has been ongoing between the British Prime Minister and the Ministry of Magic (nope, not Fudge, but a new one - Fudge got sacked for being a softy in the heat of the impending Good vs. Evil war).

Harry spends what seems like his shortest summer yet at Privet Drive when Dumbledore, himself, comes to snatch Harry away to go to the Burrow; however, along the way, Dumbledore stops to persuade an old colleague to resume post as a Hogwarts teacher in the newly opened subject... At the Burrow, the teens get their O.W.L. scores. Hermione gets high marks on everything, Harry gets his best marks in, you guessed it, DADA, but not high enough marks in Potions to be an Auror... pity.... Ron scrapes high enough grades to get praise from high emotional mother...

At school, however, we are shocked to learn that Dumbledore's colleague was to resume his long-retired position of Potions Master, making Snape the new DADA teacher. Earlier in the novel, we saw Snape back to his old Death Eater tricks again, so Dumbledore's prolonged trust of Snape is depressing and disappointing.

The new potions teacher, Slughorn, allows Harry to take the class even though he didn't excell in it, which means he would need a book. Slughorn gives him a book to use, but Harry soon discovers that his book has been tampered with. The potion directions have been altered and, after taking a stab at a particularly difficult class assignment, finds the results to be more than beneficial; he ends up out-smarting even Hermione and becomes the star potions-maker of the class! The Half-Blood Prince, the previous owner of the book Harry uses, begins to hold a very high position in Harry's life.

Hermione, thinking back to the Chamber of Secrets, feels it is unsafe to follow the advice of handwritten notes in a book. However, Harry believes the book to be safe. Having followed a suspicious Malfoy around school, Harry becomes obsessed with the idea that Malfoy could be a Death Eater following in his father's footsteps. In addition to his ludacris theories and grueling courseload, Harry also has "lessons" with Dumbledore - in private, of course - where Dumbledore puts collected memories into his Pensieve and he and Harry travel to memories of Tom Riddle's life, hoping to find a weakness or a key to his destruction.

Finally, Harry and Malfoy meet in a violent confrontation in Moaning Myrtle's bathroom. Jynxes as cast and finally, an infuriated Harry uses one of the hexes in the Half-Blood Prince's textbook (which was followed by a note that it was to be only used against an enemy) and instantly regretted he hadn't. The hex caused a giant gash to slice through Malfoy's face and chest, causing a gruesome amount of bloodloss and drama. Of course, timely Snape came in and Harry ended up with Saturday detentions for the rest of the year.

Dumbledore gave Harry a mission to get a memory from Slughorn which holds the key to Voldemorte's destruction. Upon visiting the memory, we find that Voldemorte has exercised the usage of Horcruxes, which are objects in which a wizard injects a piece of his/her soul. To do this, he/she must kill a person, which causes the soul to split, in which case you can inject a half of your soul into an object to become immortal. This is forshadowed in Chamber of Secrets when Riddle says he wasn't dead but wasn't alive and such. The tricky thing is, Voldemorte created not 1 Horcrux, but 7. One piece of his soul is within his body, one was within the journal in Chamber, one was within a ring from his ancestor, one was within Salazaar Slytherin's locket, one is within Hufflepuff's goblet, one is within Nagiri - Voldemorte's "pet" snake, and one is in an object that is related to the Ravenclaw or (less likely) the Gryfindor house. The locket, which Dumbledore and Harry go on a quest for, has already been replaced by a fake with a note from R.A.B. saying that the original locket has been destroyed. Harry destroyed the Journal in the second book, so there are 4 more to find (3 if the locket has been destroyed) not including Voldemorte's body.

Upon arriving back to Hogwarts after going on a mission to get the locket, Harry and Dumbledore see the Dark Mark hovering above the castle. Borrowing brooms from the pub in Hogsmeade, the fly to the tower directly below the Dark Mark to discover a war in progress below them. Harry, beneathe his invisibility cloak, gets petrified by Dumbledore so he won't get caught just as Draco Malfoy bursts through the door and disarms his dear old Headmaster. We learn that Voldemorte blackmailed Draca into killing Dumbledore, but Draca just can't get the deed done, so Snape walks up behind him and performs the Avada Kadevra on Dumbledore, killing him, which means Harry gets un-petrified because the person who inflicted the curse died.

Down the stairs after the Death Eaters Harry persues... In the halls, he finds some of his class mates fighting valiently against the intruding Death Eaters. Seeing as how the castle was 100% more secure than in previous years (with, at times, annoyingly thorough security measures), Draca had told Dumbledore that in the Hall of Requirements, there was a room where people hide things, and in this room was an Invisible Wardrobe in which there was a twin in Knockturn Alley - an invisible link between the two is involved, "teleporting" people into Hogwarts.

Harry persues Draca and Snape out onto the grounds where they are attempting to get off grounds to Disapparate (year 6 means Apparition lessons), but not before a quick duel between Snape and Hadgrid, and then Snape and Harry, and before Harry knows it, Snape is gone.

Harry must face the truth that Dumblefore is, indeed, dead. Whether or not the school will open for another year is up in the air in the final chapter, but after the funeral, a more mature Harry Potter reaches the verdict that he's more vulnerable at Hogwarts than at Privet Drive, so he will return once more to Privet Drive (as Dumbledore has wished), and then venture out to destroy the remaining Horcruxes and send Voldemorte to the grave, once and for all. With his friends by his side, we see what we have been waiting to see all along... Harry Potter embraces his destiny, resolves his inner demons, and does what he needs to do.

Though this installment was "filler"-ish, it carries itself well even though it is a mere transition novel with a few introductions to new concepts. The death of the most powerful character on the "Good" side was a damaging blow, but it was a wake-up call for Harry Potter. He finally realized that he needs to stop relying on adults to protect him and fullfill his part in the prochecy, whatever that may mean.

I didn't exactly like how hormonal Harry Potter was. I mean, it was strange how he would be in the midst of a terrible discovery, and then he would think about how much he's in love with Ginny Weazley (who, by the third quarter of the novel, becomes Harry's steady girlfriend). I thought it was sligtly off-topic to be reading about something interesting and intriguing and then have to go off on some hormonal relationship drama, but I guess they are at THAT age...

Whatever the case, I believe this is the darkest of all the Harry Potter books in that his world, which was for so long his means of escape from the Dursleys or whatever bad might happen, is crashing down around him, and for so long he waited for Voldemorte to come after him, but now he's ready to do what he's needed to do for some time now. I can't wait to see if Hogwarts will open again... It seemed like so many of the teachers had wanted it to...

I keep thinking back on the moment in the final chapters when McGonagall took Harry into the Headmaster's office, which is now her office, to talk to Harry, and he sees Dumbledore's portrait among all of the rest of the dead headmasters. It's heartbreaking, really...

The BEST Ever!


I absolutely LOVED this book! It is the best yet. The characters are great (as always) and so is the plot. It's a lot longer than all the others but the plot is a lot more complicated, so it's okay. You have got to read this!
