Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter #2) by J.k. Rowling
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book was so much better than I remembered. Of course all of the Harry Potter Books are amazing! But this one has long been the one that I’ve found the least amazing. This read through though, oh my it was good!
I think everyone knows the story, so prepare for mild spoilers if you somehow don’t know it. Something mysterious and dangerous is happening at Hogwarts. And of course the Golden Trio will get mixed up right in it. We also get to meet some new and wonderful characters, Gilderoy Lockheart, Arthur Weasley and Dobby to name a few. Who can forget Lockheart’s complete lack of teaching ability? And I have to admit I didn’t remember him being THAT in you face with him being a celebrity. Oh my. The Weasley family is now close to complete, and their interactions are wonderful. They definitely are my book family. I would probably be very good friends with Arthur^^ Dobby is so annoying in this book! But he is still lovable. And so annoying. Jeez! Love him!
Now I am going to jump into the third book as soon as possible! Prisoner of Azkaban, here I come!
“The Dursleys were so mean and hideous that summer that all Harry Potter wanted was to get back to the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. But just as he’s packing his bags, Harry receives a warning from a strange, impish creature named Dobby who says that if Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts, disaster will strike.
And strike it does. For in Harry’s second year at Hogwarts, fresh torments and horrors arise, including an outrageously stuck-up new professor, Gilderoy Lockhart, a spirit named Moaning Myrtle who haunts the girls’ bathroom, and the unwanted attentions of Ron Weasley’s younger sister, Ginny. But each of these seem minor annoyances when the real trouble begins, and someone, or something, starts turning Hogwarts students to stone. Could it be Draco Malfoy, a more poisonous rival than ever? Could it possibly be Hagrid, whose mysterious past is finally told? Or could it be the one everyone at Hogwarts most suspects: Harry Potter himself?”
