ST Review Of HP

Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince by J K Rowling - Sunday Times - Times Online

Nicolette Jones reviews HP#6, and prefers it to #5:

It is impressive, given the unprecedented pressure that Rowling is under to sustain a sequence that she planned in obscurity, that she maintains its emotional energy, humour and the many spinning plates of its plot without showing the strain. There will always be those who say that Harry Potter, measured against Great Literature, is not worth the hoo-hah. But the hoo-hah is born of genuine enjoyment, and those who have enjoyed the first five volumes can�t possibly abandon the story now. Rather than miss this, most enthusiasts would, as Peeves the Poltergeist urges in the book, set fire to their own pants.
