Subsequently on they receive there consequences on their O.W.L. ‘s. Harry fears he wo n’t be able to go an Auror, because Snape wo n’t allow him go on potions with merely an ‘Exceeds outlooks ‘ .

While in Diagon Alley they besides stop by the new joke-shop of Fred and George. It ‘s success and so the shop is really busy.

Back at Hogwarts, Snape has eventually got the place he ever wanted, Defence against the Dark Arts instructor. Slughorn will be learning potions from now on. Harry is displeased with Snape, but McGonagall tells him that Slughorn will allow him make potions with an ‘Exceeds Expectations ‘ . Because Harry did n’t number on this he gets a book and ingredients from Slughorn. The book is scribbled full with all kinds of notes. In his first potions-lesson he follows the instructions written by the old proprietor, and it wins him a little bottle of Felix Felicis, a potion that makes you lucky. Hermione strongly disapproves of Harry utilizing the notes, because they do n’t cognize who made them. The old proprietor was called The Half-Blood Prince and Hermione starts her hunt on information on this character.

At the eventide of Slughorn ‘s pre-Christmas party, Harry eventually gets some interesting information. Draco and Snape have an statement about the undertaking Draco is supposed to carry through. Snape wants to assist him, but Draco wo n’t allow him. Snape is angry about it, and Tells Draco he made an Unbreakable Vow to his female parent.

Harry stays at the Burrow for the Christmas interruption.
When they ‘re holding at that place Christmas diner, they get an unexpected visit from Percy, one of Ron ‘s senior brothers, and the new curate of thaumaturgy, Rufus Scrimgeour. Scrimgeour asks Harry to assist the ministry by demoing he approves of the policy of the ministry.

After the Christmas interruption, Harry gets some prep from Dumbledore. He ‘s supposed to acquire a memory from professor Slughorn.

At last he besides gets the memory from Slughorn, although it takes him a spot of his Felix Felicis. Slughorn ‘s memory shows Slughorn stating a immature Voldemort what Horcruxes are and how they are made. A Horcrux is an ordinary object, which contains a piece of the psyche of a ace. To acquire that piece of psyche, it has to be torn of the psyche, which can merely be accomplished by killing another homo. If the psyche is divided and a piece of it is transferred to the object, the individual ca n’t decease until the Horcruxes are destroyed every bit good as the organic structure.

But Harry ‘s friends, the instructors and a few Aurors are still seting up a battle while Harry pursuits Draco and Snape as they flee the evidences and Disapparate.
With Dumbledore ‘s decease, the whole school has turned sad. Preparations for the funeral are made and Harry knows what his undertaking is, to happen the staying Horcruxes and destruct them.
I liked it to read Harry Potter and The Half-blood Prince, because it ‘s a really exciting narrative, with things you will non see in normal life. I have chosen this book because I like all the different books of Harry Potter. Like I already said, the book is really exciting because the things that happen in the narrative are n’t expectable. It ‘s an advantage to read the other Harry Potter books foremost, because you will understand the narrative better and you know the characters better. I recommend everyone to read this book, because it ‘s a great book.
