The Half-Blood Prince soon revealed

15 Jul

           What do people mean when they say that Harry Potter is for children? Does it mean that because J.K. Rowling writes about children with fairly short, simple words and uses ALL CAPITAL LETTERS a lot that her books are for children?
           So, what happens in these great children’s novels? Parents are murdered, innocent children are killed, Harry is partially at fault for the death of his only living relative, and the world he lives in is now at war. You know, all the stuff that happy childhood memories are made of. Book Six, which comes out in less than 24 hours, will have to be a war novel. A tale of young adults living in a world at war. Timely, perhaps, and a good story for sure, but really, is it for children??
           On the other hand, I’m really excited about it. Lord Voldemort has returned. The Death-Eaters are free and together again, and the Dementors are with them, and the world is at war (but the Muggles don’t know.) It should be a damn good book.
           And now, I shall commence upon what should be a damn good sleep. At least, as good as it can be when it’s without Hallie.
