Book Review - Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Book 6
By: J. K. Rowling

Book Review

Book six felt the most unique out of the series so far (not counting book one of course). The surprises, joys, sadness, and the ebb and flow of intensity just felt different. As Harry gets older, the complexity of the issues correspondingly get more difficult, and he observes the limitations of the adults in his life more keenly. Harry's weight of responsibility dramatically increases, and his relationships, although sometimes stormy, become even deeper. Some long-standing tensions in the storyline get resolved, and some get unexpectedly brought to the forefront. As I've mentioned before, although these books are significantly other worldly, they are firmly rooted in our experience in this world. As I am now approaching my 40s, I find myself able to dwell on these things in a new way, and get much more application out of them.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

Pastoral Ministry

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.

The Attic

You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
