Name of book:
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Type of book: Fiction (Fantasy)
Why did you choose this book:
I chose Harry Potter and the Half-Blood prince because I have read the past 5 Harry Potter books. I waited 2 years for this book to come out, I could not wait to know what happened next in the series as I purchased the book right when it was released.
The Harry Potter books take place in England and an imaginary wizarding word (Hogwarts, Diagon Alley etc)
Main Character #1:
Harry Potter – Harry potter is the first main character in the Harry Potter series. He has messy hair, wears round glasses and is very skinny. In the Half-Blood Prince Harry is 16 and a much more mature boy then in any of the past books. Having seen death in the face in all the other books Harry is ready for anything. The child they now call the “Chosen One” is the only one who can save the wizarding world from the dark wizard Voldermort or “He-who-must-not-be-named”. Harry is now ready to avenge his parents death. Harry’s famous lightening scar on his forehead is a remnant of Voldermort trying to kill him when he was a mere child. Some people accept that he is the “Chosen One” while others despise of him and want him dead.
Main Character #2:
Dumbledore – Dumbledore is going into his 6th year as being Harry’s headmaster at Hogworts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He has very long white hair and a silver beard, a crooked nose and is a tall man. He is referred to sometimes as the most knowledgeable wizard in the wizarding world. He is very smart and a very strong wizard. So strong that Voldermort even fears him. Dumbledore was one always to believe when Harry told him Voldermort was back while others didn’t. Dumbledore always looks things over very carefully. He believed in Harry and was the one who told Harry that he alone must kill Voldermort.
Was the book believable, realistic, and true to life? Why or why not?:
I don’t believe that the Harry Potter books are true and realistic. Magic is Fantasy and not Reality. People cannot just vanish one instant and be some where else the next second (apperating). You can’t just flick a wand and mend a broken bone. None of that stuff exists in the real world.
