Due South

More on the Half-Blood Prince

One good thing that came out of seeing the movie is that it caused me to reread Half-Blood Prince, which I haven’t done since… well, since it came out five years ago.

I kinda liked it this time.

I mean, there were still some godawful bits to it, but the horribly romance spin didn’t annoy me as much this time. Probably for the same reasons it didn’t annoy me as much in the film—-I was misremembering the concentration, so when there was less than I feared, I was happy.
