Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince

Ministry of MagicTitle : Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince

Author : J.K. Rowling

Description Of One Of The Main Characters : Ginny is a brave girl. She, like Hermione, helps Harry many times. She is Ron’s younger sister. She fights with the death-eaters to save Hogwarts with great aurors. She is very good in her studies. She can do spectacular non-verbal spells. She is good at stunning and jinxing.

Whom I like and Why : I like Ron as he is loyal to Harry. He says that he would come with Harry for the hunt for four more horcruxes. He sometimes gets brilliant ideas. He is known for not following school rules. Hermione has to force him to study because he never concentrates in his studies.

Whom I dislike and Why : I dislike Draco Malfoy as he accepted to do Voldermort a help by killing Dumbledore. He succeeds in doing it. He is very arrogant. He tries to kill two of Hogwarts students. He calls Hermione a mudblood.

Setting/Theme Of The Story : As the death-eaters and Voldermort has returned to power there are many problems coming up. Murders and thefts are done by the death-eaters both in Muggle and the Wizarding world. Harry is safely brought to the Burrow, the house of the Weasley’s by Albus Dumbledore. Harry and his friends go to Hogwarts. Dumbledore tells Harry about Tom Riddle and ask Harry to get a memory from Prof. Sloughorn which will help Harry kill Voldermort. Harry is overjoyed when he showed Dumbledore the memory. Dumbledore tells Harry all about Horcruxes. Voldermort has six Horcruxes.  Harry has already found out two of them and he should destroy four more. After he destroys, he need to kill the one piece of soul which Voldermort has in his body. Dumbledore falls ill in the attempt to find one of the Horcruxes. Draco kills Dumbledore and many like Bill and Neville get injured. Snape helps Malfoy kill Dumbledore. Bellatrix also joins the death-eaters. Harry has to search for the other Horcruxes now that Dumbledore has died.

Where the Title comes from : Snape takes up Dark Arts and Sloughorn becomes a Potions teacher. Harry thinks that he will fail in Potions and does not buy the Potions book. But when he finds out that Sloughorn is willing to accept him for NEWT, he takes up the book of Half-Blood Prince. He is fascinated by the tricks of Half-Blood Prince and becomes No.1 in Potions. At the end, when Harry fights with Snape, he uses one of the stunning Spells of Half-Blood Prince. That is when Harry comes to know that Snape is the Half-Blood Prince because Snape’s father is a wizard and his mother is a Muggle. That is why the book is named as Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince.

Part I Enjoyed The most  : I like the part when Gryffindors wins Slytherins in The Final Quidditch match. 

Different Ending : Harry kills Voldermort. He is really amazing. Everybody stops calling him “The Chosen One”. Harry is really happy. He starts living with Lupin and Tonks in the Grimuald Palace instead being arrested in the Privet Drive with the Dursleys.
