Half-Blood Prince, Chapter Four

One of the things I love about Half-Blood Prince is the addition of a character we meet for the first time in this chapter – Horace Slughorn. The characters in Harry Potter are wonderfully complex, but at the end of the day, the overwhelming majority of them fall on one side of the line or the other – good, or bad. We have met characters who are more ambiguous (like Snape) and those who don’t care about sides, but don’t care about anybody else, either (like Umbridge). But here we have someone who has no interest in choosing one side or the other, but who is essentially a good person at the end of the day. He’s fun to read about, and even more interesting to watch.

  1. When I click the link I get this message:

    Problem?
    Looks like you have a problem here sir/madam. You sure you have the right place? Maybe you got a little lost? Maybe you’re looking for something you’re not supposed to find? Either way, just go search for it, it can’t hurt.

  2. I got the same message.
