Reviews of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

And you thought wizardry was for children. Harry Potter will make you think again. He casts his spells on grown-ups too * James Naughtie * A gripping story with its clues trailed through the text, chills, spills and some excellent, new comic characters. There is a measure of sadness too … one of the elements of Rowling's writing that I think entitles her to a seat in the pantheon * Julian Fellowes, Sunday Telegraph * Funny, imaginative, magical … In the 2020s, thirty-something book-lovers will know each other by smug references to Diagon Alley and Quidditch * The Times * One of the greatest literary adventures of modern times * Sunday Telegraph * Spellbinding, enchanting, bewitching stuff * Mirror *
