There is danger in not only the muggle world but in the magic world as well.”
“This book seemed more fast paced than the others, and with the competition going on, it was hard not to stay interested. (Though in the back of my head, i knew harry would win, as most protagonists do) Nevertheless, it was very entertaining seeing him travel that path to get there. We're always talking about how many symbols of literature are in harry potter, and i think this book has alot of them. This is definitely the end of childhood for Harry, and i think things will only get dimmer from this point on.”Seth wrote this review Monday, May 6, 2013.

“This book was just as good as the first. J.K. Rowling has proven that she can take a story and build it in ways that are unimaginable. Snape and Dumbledore are two of the most memorable characters ever. Harry finally knows what he has to do to free both muggles and wizards alike from Voldemort. ”Chris DeOrio wrote this review Sunday, May 5, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful?

“Those of you who like quick paced stories may not find this one as enjoyable as J.K. Rowling's other books. It's a pretty awesome book, and the reason I like it is because it contains a lot of information on Voldemort, but at the same time it goes at a slow pace so that you can try and put the information together yourselves. ”Alyssa H wrote this review Saturday, May 4, 2013.

“(Contains spoilers from earlier books in series)
The Ministry of Magic has finally admitted that Voldemort has returned, and Dumbledore has returned as Hogwarts Headmaster. Furthermore, Dumbledore has realized that it was a huge mistake to leave Harry in the dark for so long. He and Harry become much closer in Harry's sixth year at Hogwarts, as Dumbledore reveals much of what he knows of Voldemort's history and motivations to Harry. Harry is also kept busy with his new obsession that Draco Malfoy is up to new levels of "no good." Ron and Hermione poo-poo his suspicions and keep themselves busy with escalating romantic tension.
Altogether, this book has a LOT going on, yet it's more compact than the previous two books. Overall, I think this is Rowling's best written book in the series, even if my favorites are the first four. I really enjoyed this re-read of the 6th book in the Harry Potter series - it's only my second time reading this book, and I had forgotten a lot of it. The romantic tension between Ron and Hermione is my favorite part of the book, since it'd been building for SO long and was finally let loose terrifically.
Jim Dale's reading, as usual, is excellent. It took some getting used to, but after the first or second book it really grew on me. I know all his voices for the characters, and that really ads to my enjoyment of the story. ”
“Wonderful depiction of flawed characters acting according to the elements the author laid out earlier. Flaws we nodded over or even overlooked, come into play and the stakes run high, the consequences grim. Could have used trimming back a bit.”Robin Winter wrote this review Saturday, April 20, 2013.
