Description

This enhanced edition includes the full original text—plus charming illustrations, animations and interactions that bring key moments in the story to life. You’ll also find annotations written by J.K. Rowling to give you interesting insights into the world of Harry Potter. Update to iOS 9 to get the full, enriched experience.

The war against Voldemort is not going well; even Muggle governments are noticing. Hermione scans the obituary pages of the Daily Prophet, looking for familiar names. Dumbledore is absent from Hogwarts for long stretches of time, and the Order of the Phoenix has already suffered losses.

And yet... 

As in all wars, life goes on. The Weasley twins expand their business. Sixth-year students learn to Apparate - and lose a few eyebrows in the process. Teenagers flirt and fight and fall in love. Classes are never straightforward, though Harry receives some extraordinary help from the mysterious Half-Blood Prince.

So it's the home front that takes center stage in the multi-layered sixth installment of the story of Harry Potter. Here at Hogwarts, Harry will search for the full and complex story of the boy who became Lord Voldemort - and thereby find what may be his only vulnerability.

    This book has less artwork than the original printing. They original printing had a black and white picture at the beginning of every chapter. This has one color picture at best one every other chapter. These books don’t even use any Potterish fonts. The entire thing looks like it was written in Word. Going to go ask for my $10 back.

    This book is amazing, and the story behind Voldemort and his origin is fascinating as well as the characters and the Half-blood Prince. There is a reason that this book sold over 9 million copies in 24 hours. This book is actually a little darker, and actually the books get darker with each addition, But it's a good thing. People on iTunes are just complaining about life not being free. These books are honestly worth $50 a piece and $10 or even $25 for the best books in history with illustrations is a steal of a deal.
