Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince (book)

This book may have a great ending but the process of getting there falls a bit short. I do not like the revelation of the Half-Blood Prince. I do not like how the concept of Horcruxes was handled. It was promising but it falls short.

I admit that the tone is getting darker and darker and I give Rowling credit for that. But then somehow it does not blend well with the puppy-love romance in the book. I am sure some people would find the contrast appealing but not me. It is like having the Tooth Fairy in a stag party.

It is a page-turner but I think I can wait a long time before I will read the last installment.
