Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince Movie Review..

April 2, 2009

This is Rowling Next creative which is Harry Potter’s ” Harry potter and the Half Blood Prince” . None of Rowling’s strengths from the previous novels have dissipated; she never has a problem keeping the pages turning, and the Harry Potter universe is wonderfully created.
