About the book

image4.4/5.0

In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, the summer after Harry’s first year at Hogwarts has been his worst summer ever… the Dursleys more distant and horrible than ever before. But just as he’s packing his bags to return to school, a creature named Dobby the house-elf announces that if Harry goes back to Hogwarts, disaster will strike. And it turns out, Dobby is right. Harry and Ron miss the Hogwarts Express, so they fly to school in a blue Ford Anglia, crash landing in the notorious Whomping Willow. Soon other worries accumulate: the outrageously stuck-up new professor Gilderoy Lockhart; a ghost named Moaning Myrtle, who haunts the girls' bathroom; the strange behavior of Ron's little sister, Ginny Weasley; rumors about the "Chamber of Secrets," a cavern buried deep below Hogwarts; and a magical diary owned by Tom Riddle, a Hogwarts student of long ago. Harry is also shocked to discover that he can speak Parseltongue, the language of snakes - a rare ability that Lord Voldemort also possessed - and that anti-Muggle prejudice exists in the Wizarding world, even affecting Harry's friend Hermione. But all of these seem like minor concerns when someone starts turning Hogwarts students to stone: an evildoer said to be the fearsome Heir of Salazar Slytherin, on of the founders of the school. Could it be Draco Malfoy, Harry's most poisonous rival? Could it be Hagrid whose mysterious past is finally told? Or could it be the one person everyone at Hogwarts most suspects: Harry Potter himself?

🐍 Ahh it is just SO good. Thanks to a fellow's suggestion, I've been reading this at night with a torch feeling like a child again 🔦 but I'm also stunned at how much I don't feel like a child. I'm a fully enthralled adult, who knows the entire plot and yet athirst for each approaching word.  It really doesn't feel like a children's book, except for a few bits earlier on where it was re-explaining stuff. Great audience capacity. I was glad to see Moaning Myrtle wasn't creepy flirting with Harry the whole time like the films. Also do enjoy seeing what is different in the books. SO hard to put down. By the end I was so hyped, pumped, excited! So much joy. Excited for the next! 🧹 "It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities."

It makes me sad I can’t enjoy these books as much as I did before and it’s all because of the author. I will rate this well but I will be forever disappointed that this beautiful world was created by someone like JK Rowling. With that in mind, this was definitely better than the first book and actually better than the film version which was nice.

Дуже люблю слизеринську єстетику, і саме в цій частині її найбільше. Дуже сумно, що василіска саме вбили, а не перенесли до заповіднику (сорі за спойлер). Як і попередня частина, комфортне чтиво.

Not sure why this series is as hyped as it is. I think maybe if I read these when I was young I might understand why people love these.

In the second book we are still in the more child-like part of the Universe, but to me this book is also actually quite funny. It has alot of hidden gems and puns in it, and the way Gilderoy Lockhart is written as a character cracks me up. There are alot of things in this one, that we will need to remember for later on in the Harry Potter Universe!
