Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets ( Harry Potter #2) by J.K. Rowling
Genre: Fantasy, Adventure
Synopsis: 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?
My friend bought the whole Harry Potter series off of Amazon. She didn’t have the recent one so I got it for her sister’s birthday. I read the second book from her set.
I thought this book was slightly better than the first in terms of the problem (in the story) being solved and how it was solved. I’d recommend the book before watching the movie because in the book, you’d be in Harry’s mind and learn some vocabulary. I found the vocabulary and other pieces of information helpful for the movie.
Next week at my school will have spirit days. “Rep your house” day is one of them. My class is Ravenclaw. I’m a Gryffindor, but even if my class was Gryffindor, I’d have no merchandise to wear. Do you have any Harry Potter merchandise?
