half blood prince is actually a deceptive title.
see, really, the driving force of the plot in this book is the relationship that cat of filch's has with hermione's cat. needless to say the babies are very cute, and one of them has a white head with ginger markings ringing the top of it, around its ears.

Ron remarks in chapter 35, "Hey, that little kitten looks like it's wearing a crown!" Hermione replies, "Oh yes, it looks like a little prince."
Of course the intrigue begins when they discover that, while Hermione's cat is a pureblood magical cat, Filches is nothing of the sort. So the kitten, now named Prince, is a half-blood.

When Voldermort returns to the plot in chapter 68 he is riding a giant rat, the same bloke that got the Potters killed (now giant thanks to a disregard of the benefits of Subway sandwiches and some suspect pollution coming from the nuclear power plant near the dark lords lair.)
Harry is battling away against the mounted voldermort and is losing badly. Then, as if by magic, the half-blood prince bounds into the scene, claws out, hissing. Action prevails for a few more chapters, until chapter 105, when the crunch comes

--spoiler alert--

at this point the kitten and harry share a knowing glance, and a sigh, while harry continously blinks his eyes at the kitten in a strange act of, um, appalling acting (yes, I'm talking to YOU mr radcliffe!) The kitten misinterprets the strange behaviour as a sign, a reference to the strange tricks the strobe lights play on your eyes while you are in a night club.
And then, pulling out of its own arse its very own bag of magic tricks, the kitten begins doing the boogie, the jive, the carwash, the funky potatoe! The giant rat is highly intimidated by this alpha male behaviour and momentarily takes his eyes off the game, and runs straight into the whomping willow.
Victory is nigh, but voldermort makes a miraculous escape involving a swiss army knife, two pieces of string and some ordinary household bleach!
Bring on book 7!!!

I know... however, I was told that once you start you can't stop and I am afraid that, knowing me, I will not be able to stop reading...

I'll wait for the Slovene translation in December.

IMO half blood prince is a new character.

Very interested in the Goblet of fire movie as well - that's my favorite book.
