In contrast to the first five books this book is a fair bit darker, but as such it tackles slightly mature and complex themes that will surely be of interest to teens and adults alike.

This is an AWESOME MUST READ!
I have read every book except the last one and watched the first two! Every book keeps on getting better. I rate this 999,000,000 out of 10.

Jim Dale creates a fantastic cast of voices. The sixth book in the Harry Potter series is well crafted; it's hard to leave the car when this is playing!

I've listened to earlier Harry Potter books narrated by Jim Dale. In early books he pronounces Voldemort with a silent T...voldemor, the way it would be pronounced if it were a French name. In this book, the Half-Blood Prince, the final T is restored. I wonder if the French officially or unofficially objected.

On a different matter,at least half a dozen times in this text, and perhaps in the texts of other books by Rowling, the word COMPRISE is used where COMPOSE is wanted. If you are a parent, be sure to point this out to your young listeners lest they pick up the bad habit.Comprise and compose are NOT synonymous.

If the Muggle corwd (the public) thinks the H.P. story is fiction, just look around where you see the sign, the Triangular Eye of that dangerous wizard Grindelwald. As a clue I can tell you that one place is the backside of the Grand Seal of the world's most powerful nation; the backside of the unitary paper money of the same nation; and also some national and international foundations. I saw it on the spine cover of a video of a Wildlife Foundation, also in the logo of an international children's organization. It's also the logo of a giant American broadcasting system. Was the Triangular Eye (for which Victor Crum would have duelled anyone who wore it) put there for a joke? My guess is that Grindelwald symbolizes Weishaupt, also the ancient Gnostic sect, which DumbLeader (the Roman Church) wanted to eradicate. In the 1950s or 1960s I have seen the triangle and the eye in it painted on the ceiling of the Roman Church in Eastern Europe where I lived at the time. So DumbLeader and Grindelwald have indeed been friends at some time (because the H.P. story is historical fiction, it describes historical reality exactly, disguised as "fiction"). Why is Grindelwald's sign around us in elite high places? The All-Seeing Eye is also put into some brands' logos in imitation form - NVidia G-Force or an international film festival, etc. We live in a world of Wizards, are surrounded with Wizards,and the H.P. story is a camouflaged symbolic double talk to present them to us. I am just reading an occultist writer's book, and he says that "Magic Wand" is none other than symbolic talk, which the dummy public doesn't recognize (i.e. the real meaning of it). The writer of the H.P. story enjoys seeing that the Crowd don't even have a clue that reality is put before them as "fiction" - thereby proving what she says several times in the H.P. story, i.e. Muggles "don't notice nothing," therefore, they are inferior to Wizards, these real secret orders that direct our lives since millennia and even as of today. On the cover of Manly Hall's book: "TheSecret Destiny of America" (available in VPL) there is the Triangular Eye of Grindelwald. Wonder, why?

You can tell that the books are really starting to get a lot more intense. The writing is a lot darker and the ending nearly had me in tears.
