Recommended for: Harry Potter buffs

I have enjoyed this collection of essays regarding six "experts'" opinions of what really transpired in the penultimate Harry Potter book, The Half-Blood Prince. I think that it is not quite as compelling after reading Unlocking Harry Potter, simply because a lot of the theories/predictions I have already heard, and I really prefer to examine Rowling's own underlying writing structures and formulaic references, rather than a bunch of seemingly implausible theories. Yet, I have learned a few interesting tidbits that do cast some light on certain aspects of the book. I particularly liked the book's last segment, which summarizes the authors' differing ideas of predictions for Book 7. Just seeing the chart of who thinks whom will die is intriguing.
