On "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince"
From The Dispatch:
Rowling did a phenomenal job of growing her books up along with her characters and her audience, her prose and her stories maturing as her audience grew older, and "Half-Blood Prince" reflects this. It is a darker tale, with a bleaker ending than any other we have seen yet. This is the Harry Potter series' "Empire Strikes Back," a tale of prevailing darkness and evil ascendant, where Harry's world is turned upside down by the growing influence of the evil lord Voldemort, and the death of a major and beloved character.Click here to read my full review.
