Review by Linda

I cannot say much about the plot of this book without spoilers, so Iwon't say much about the plot.

I can say, however, that it is as fast-moving and as spell-binding asher other books. I think, in fact, that this one was much better thanmost, as it moves well with very few side issues.

As to the plot, it does begin to deal with the dating issues, as Harry,Ron, and Hermoine are all now 16. It also reveals some secrets that wemay have wondered about, including how Voldemort survives and whereSnapes true loyalties are (maybe--Rowling does tend to make things verycomplicated). I have to admit that I enjoyed this book, even with partsthat will make some people very unhappy, more than any since the firstHarry Potter. And it's so nice to see the characters growth and not justin height!
