In what is probably the best book of the series so far, all of Britain now knows the truth. Voldemort has indeed come back and Harry Potter was right all along. Harry and Professor Dumbledore work together trying to uncover clues about Voldemort's past and to try and find a way to stop him once and for all. What is a Horcrux? How is Voldemort still alive? Is Snape evil? And most importantly, who is RAB?

Over all this was a very good book. Again, the author writes another fairly dark book in some areas. Nicely done with explanations of the characters.

A wonderful read. This book is darker and sadder than the earlier HP books but it's fitting given where we are in the story. Harry's growing up and his eventual battle with Voldemort is close at hand.

The older wiser gang (Harry, Hermione, and Ron) are finally growing up (in my opinion) as 6th years at Hogwarts. This book is by far the best in the series because you finally get to learn about just who Lord V is and his past and why he is so evil and powerful. Some of the other characters have major roles as well, so it doesn't focus mainly on Harry anymore, but you know by the end of this book that "The boy who survived" is going to have a big nasty battle to tackle before this series is over. And there's a pretty shocking ending. I read this book every chance I got until I finished it--- I definitely rec. this Harry Potter book.

I enjoyed this book more than any of the other books. Of course, you get everything resolved in "Deathly Hallows", but this book sets it up so well. The majority of the book felt lighthearted, and I was able to sigh with relief that Harry was enjoying life, school, and his friends, like a "normal" boy would. I guess you could call this the "calm before the storm". Big surprise ending.

I got this book for my grandson and he has not read it yet. He is in 4th grade and it takes his a while to get through on of these. He is looking forward to it though.

Weakest novel in the series in terms of plot (relies heavily on flashback scenes), but the storyline is well executed. Rowling was right when she described books 6 and 7 as two parts of a whole. There is a lot of exposition leading up to "Deathly Hallows" here. Balances the comical with the creepy very well. One of the funniest books in the series. Recommended!
