Book 6 shows JK evolving as a writer somewhat, her ability of fleshing out the characters comes off a bit smoother, which is a good thing. The evolution of Snape is the highlight in this book, he's finally starting to become an interesting character where before he just seemed like a bitter little wizard. Other characters such as Draco and Bellatrix also pick up a bit more depth, but what about the good guys? Well Harry for some odd reason has decided to hit puberty at 16, which is kind of late but maybe nerdy boys hit puberty later on. Not only has Harry hit puberty but he roams around wanting to beat up one of his teammates because he wants his friends woman, how lovely.

Besides the silly little machismo angle JK gave Harry in this book, the story is good however. The relationship between Harry and Dumbledore becomes more significant while at the same time, the reader gets to learn more about Voldemort. And well, Voldemort is like the next gen Darth Vader, and a lot more interesting.

All in all, not a bad a book at all. It could be better, but if it was it wouldn't be suitable for children.
