Book finished: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

I just finished #6 Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J. K. Rowling. I rate it a 6.
The war against Voldemort is not going well: even Muggle governments are noticing. Ron 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. Sixth-year students learn to Apparate - and lose a few eyebrows in the process. The Weasley twins expand their business. Teenagers flirt and fight and fall in love. Classes are never straightforward, though Harry receives some extraordinary help from the mysterious Half-Blood Prince.

Eight days to finish a book? What's wrong with this picture? Even though I read three other books while reading this one it still shouldn't have taken...
The book had a few good turns but all in all...just finish the series. If the next book isn't the last one, I probably won't get #8 especially if it's anything like this one was.

I'm currently reading #1 Monkeewrench by P. J. Tracey.
