View Full Version : Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince Released

16-07-05, 12:27 AM
The penultimate book in the Harry Potter Series was released today at 00:01 hrs.

After reading the first chapter, it would seem that this is going to be another decent book in the series, yet darker than before.

Yep, just finished it :D

Definitely alot more witty, but the wit is more subtle, and the book has generally a sadder tone, and the 2 main revelations at the end (but there are smaller others) makes it the best book yet without a doubt. Roll on No. 7 :P
