it was amazing
bookshelves: fantasy

Wonderful book...only complaint I ever heard was it was too short. Still the emotional toll of this book is heavier than the ones before and it is more a young "adult" book than a "youth" book. As I've pointed out before, the original "generation reading these books had more time to mature between the publishing date of each book. Now they can be bought all together. Harry goes through some amazingly tough times (and doesn't handle some of them too well). Read these books before you simply turn them over to your kids. You'll enjoy them and be able to decide if your children are ready for this volume.

This book is a somewhat emotionally draining book due to what Harry is going through. The body of the book, right up to the "heavy" climax will draw you in and hold you. Again we are moving into a darker side of Harry's world.

Review to be expanded.
