Harry gets really good in potions thanks to his new book. In the book there are allot of descriptions from the Half Blood Prince, but there are also curses in it, which Harry wants to try out.

After Snape, Draco and some Death Eaters have escaped Harry knows what his task in the future will be. He has to destroy the Horcrux and kill Voldemort.

My Opinion:

I really enjoyed reading the book. I have also read the other books so I was very curious what this one was going to bring for me. I found it very exciting and surprising. It was very good to finally understand why Snape is so hatefull and why he hates Harry so much. The same goes for the relation between Voldemort and Harry. I would recommend this book to others because it is very easy to read and you can't put it down because you have to know how it will end.
