Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince is the best book of the century. The characters are hilarious and the problem is a real problem. The main characters in this book are Harry Potter, Ron Weasly and Hermione Granger. The main setting is Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry (a school for witches and wizards). The biggest problem in this book is that the Dark Lord Voldemort is trying to kill the famous Harry Potter. You'll find out why if you read the book.

I absolutely loved this book, because it's funny, sad, happy, weird, and even a little scary. My favorite part is when Professor Dumbledore and Harry go searching for a horocrux. You'll know what a horocrux is when you read the book. It's my favorite part because it's scary and really cool. Toward the end of the book I felt pretty sad because a tragic doing happens. It's really sad. It made me wonder what would happen later on.

I recommend this book to those who like spells, charms, magic, and battles because this book has all those things. I think Austin would like this book because he likes adventures and it's an adventure book.
