I have found this book to be one of the top two in the series. Although Goblet of Fire still remains my favorite, this one gave ti a run for its money. I mean, Finally Harry is happy, it takes the tragedy that happened at the end of the 5th book and handles it beautifully, and we finally get to explore the character of Ginny. Plus, the idea of Malfoy and Snape are finally decided, and I believe it is jammed pack full of action.

After reading the Goblet of Fire, which was good, and the Order of the Phoenix, which was better, I expected the best of the Half-Blood Prince. I must say, that even though I am a huge fan, I was extremely disappointed in this book. Nothing at all of importance is happening in the first 400 pages. Nothing is exciting, nothing happens. This book would be so much better if it was shortened to 300 pages. It has no dept. After being given two amazing and frightening books, and the end fight in the Order of the Phoenix, and Harry leading Dumbledore's army, you expect more than this. All they worry about is the school tests and grades, and love. The pages after p.400 (the end of the book) is not good enough to compensate the loss of exciting material. The only thing that made a huge shocking impact on me, was the betrayal of a certain person and his terrible deed. That was so unexpected. I still can not believe it.

In all seriousness, can you really claim her work is even remotely competent?
