The atmosphere Rowling creates is unique; the story whizzes along; Harry is an unassuming and completely sympathetic hero. But, truth to tell, you may feel as if you’ve read it all before. Rowling clearly hit on a winning formula with the first Harry Potter book; the second book — though still

Tras derrotar una vez más a lord Voldemort, su siniestro enemigo en Harry Potter y la piedra filosofal, Harry espera impaciente en casa de sus insoportables tíos el inicio del segundo curso del Colegio Hogwarts de Magia y Hechicería. Sin embargo, la espera dura poco, pues un elfo aparece en su

habitación y le advierte que una amenaza mortal se cierne sobre la escuela. Así pues, Harry no se lo piensa dos veces y, acompañado de Ron, su mejor amigo, se dirige a Hogwarts en un coche volador. Pero ¿puede un aprendiz de mago defender la escuela de los malvados que pretenden destruirla? Sin saber que alguien ha abierto la Cámara de los Secretos, dejando escapar una serie de monstruos peligrosos, Harry y sus amigos Ron y Hermione tendrán que enfrentarse con arañas gigantes, serpientes encantadas, fantasmas enfurecidos y, sobre todo, con la mismísima reencarnación de su más temible adversario.

Here, ladies and gentlemen, we have a classic example of the infamous “sophomore slump.”

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets cannot, unlike its predecessor, rest its laurels on J. K. Rowling’s world-building and the charm of the characters. We have already met Harry, Ron, Hermione, and the
Show More
rest of the cast. We have already had the delightful experience of discovering Hogwarts for the first time. Now it was up to Rowling to ratchet up the intensity of the series either by increasing the stakes or delving more deeply into Harry’s psychology. She doesn’t do nearly enough of either.

I suppose that, from an objective perspective, the stakes are a little higher. Evil not only threatens the world of Hogwarts in this book: it touches it, leaves a mark on it. The Chamber of Secrets (like the Stone of the preceding book, the exact nature of the Chamber is kept a mystery for much of the story) is opened somewhere within the school’s walls, and students are found petrified in the hallways. Yet in spite of all this, I didn’t feel there was as much at risk as in Sorcerer’s/Philosopher’s Stone. I never doubted that there would be a cure for a petrifaction, and knew that the threat itself would eventually be eradicated. So the danger here really isn’t much more than a long nap, is it? I didn’t think there was anything in here to match the Forbidden Forest chapter for suspense and thrills.

One of my main complaints about the book is the tedious rehearsal of everything that happened in Sorcerer’s Stone during the opening chapters (and I do mean everything). I’m sure it’s useful for those who somehow missed the first book, or hadn’t read it in awhile, but for those who are coming Chamber it right off of Sorcerer’s Stone, the repetition is unnecessary and irritating.

I’m not especially fond of the new characters Rowling incorporates here, either. Gilderoy Lockhart, the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, is occasionally hilarious in his egocentricity (“my secret ambition is to rid the world of evil and market my own range of hair-care potions”), but mostly, he’s just annoying. The Harry Potter fan club nonsense is annoying. Dobby is certainly annoying. Of the new characters, Lucius Malfoy makes for an excellent “surface-level” villain, and it’s nice to read more about the Weasleys; I especially like Mrs. Weasley. It would have been nice to have seen a little more clearly into Ginny’s mind, considering the part she plays in the plot, but I suppose that would have been outside the compass of the narrative.

This is still an engrossing read—I polished it off in half a day—but I would only recommend it on account of what precedes and follows it. It’s still good … just not as good.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets seems to be the least favorite book of many HP fans. However, for many years The Chamber of Secrets was my second favorite book (this was before I read Deathly Hallows and followed my other favorite The Goblet of Fire). There's just something about it that's
Show More
so captivating, a bit moreso than The Sorcerer's Stone.

I think my love for The Chamber of Secrets stems from the fact that this is the first time we get an in-depth introduction to the elder Weasleys. In fact, I think the chapter where Harry goes to the Burrow might be my FAVORITE chapter out of all seven books (or at least my favorite "fluffy" chapter). Mr. and Mrs. Weasley are just really great characters and so my love for that chapter knows no bounds.

Of course, The Chamber of Secrets also holds my LEAST favorite chapter out of all seven books: Nearly Headless Nick's Deathday Party (I can totally see why it was excluded from the movie). It's just such a boring chapter. I do like St. Nicholas, but mostly in small increments. Devoting a whole chapter to him, though, is not my idea of fun.

I also loved the whole rivalry between Godric Gryffindor and Salazar Slythering. I found it fascinating how Slytherin only wanted "pure" bloods in the school and didn't want any Muggle-borns in (there has to be some allegorical meaning behind THAT). Plus, I remember reading the line "The Chamber of Secrets has now been opened. Enemies of the heir, BEWARE" and literally getting chills on my arm (I'm a bit weird that way).

Oh and let's not forget the inclusion of two very lovable characters: Dobby and Gilderoy Lockheart. There's no need to go in to why Dobby is loveable (he's sweet, loyal, and he's so easy to sympathize with), but Lockheart needs a teeny bit of explaining. He's hilarious. That's it. That's the only reason why I love him. Sure he has a big head and thinks he's God's gift to the wizarding world, but again, he just has such fantastic one-liners ("celebrity is as celebrity does" and my personal favorite "It's like magic!").

So, yes, I love Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. It's always one of the books out of the series that I look most forward to reading. But, let's face it, I look forward to reading ALL of the Harry Potter series.

Chamber of Secrets is one of my favorites in the series. Rowling combines adventure and fantasy with humor and good storytelling to create a really enjoyable read. And, despite its slightly dark tone, it's much more lighthearted than 5 and 7.

Again, J. K. Rowling brings to life the wizarding world. Her writing matures to fit Harrys age here, and this is a plesant change.

Ron and Hermione mature right along with Harry, and we find the three-some unraveling another mystery. This time, the person caught in the middle is a loved one!

The end wraps up the storyline well, still leaving the reader waiting for the next book.

I'll give this 3 1/2 out of 5 stars. The writing is still a bit young, the book still a slow read. However, there is a promise that Rowling might just be writing the books to reflect Harry's age. If so it will by lovely to watch this story evolve. I say, "have faith, keep reading."

I enjoyed all the Harry Potter books. I chose to add this book to my library because it has what I think is the most significant quote in the series. Dumbledore says to Harry,

"It is our choices that show who we truly are, far more than our abilities."

It had to be five stars...because how else can you rate a book (or the whole series) when you can't seem to stop reading, from the moment the book starts until the last page...After finishing (in one sitting) the first book in the Harry Potter series, I ran out to buy number two, which I also read
Show More
as quick as possible. The characters that I came to know & like in the first book were all there (Harry, Hagrid, Hermione & Ron), the humour was there, & of course the mystery was there...culminating in an interesting & unexpected ending. If I absolutely HAD to look for a flaw in book number two, the only thing I'd say is that it's not that different from book 1. And therefore it doesn't take you so much by surprise as the first one does. The third book in the series (The prisoner of Azkaban) is, I believe, much better than the first 2 books. But anyway: these are all details: the point is that the Harry Potter books are clear, pure fun & even if one is a little better or a little worse than the other, all in all, the four books (up till now) are all very worth reading.

I remember, from the first time around, that I didn’t really like this book. I think that it is my least favorite Harry Potter book, actually. But that doesn’t mean that it’s bad by any means.

Harry is back at Hogwarts for his second year. There are things that I really liked about this book:
Show More
I thought Tom Riddle’s diary was pretty cool, I liked the further development of Dumbledore as a pretty cool guy and of Lucius as a pretty bad dude, I LOVE the Flying Ford Anglia. I don’t so much like Dobby, what they find in the forest, or the new DADA professor. I got sick of Colin pretty quickly, and I didn’t really enjoy the save-the-girl plot device used…well, both with Hermione AND Ginny. There’s also a lot of self-flagellating in this book, both from Moaning Myrtle and Dobby. It got a bit old.

But I digress. We get to learn more about Harry, the school, the Malfoy family, the Weasleys (oh, how I want to have a Burrow of my own!), Tom Riddle, the wizarding world: stigma of being a mudblood, what Mr. Weasley does, all that good stuff. I’m okay with this being a link between books one and three – and I am still looking forward to what comes next.

Harry has had a miserable summer. None of his friends have written to him and he wonders whether Hogwarts and the world of wizardry that he discovered the year before is just a dream. Four weeks before he is due to return to school he has a visit from Dobby the House Elf who warns him away from
Show More
returning to Hogwarts. And so we embark on another year at Hogwarts and another mystery - this time involving the Chamber of Secrets, of the title.

I still thoroughly enjoyed this book, but not quite as much as the first. The main reason for this was the clumsy need to recap that Rowling displayed. The worst instance was when Colin and Harry are walking to the Quidditch pitch and Harry has to explain how it all works - it isn't completely unforgiveable since Colin has only just started at Hogwarts, but I felt it was superfluous nonetheless, and this was not the only instance.

My other reason for the half star being dropped was Gilderoy Lockhart, a very tiresome character who boasts constantly about his achievements. I can see how some people might regard him as humourous but I begrudged any of his 'screentime' and wished he hadn't been introduced.

In this book the fright factor is increased. There is a spine chilling scene in the Forbidden Forest, especially if you are not that fond of spiders, and I still have nerves when Harry faces off against Tom Riddle and he reveals who he actually is. Some younger readers might well be scared by some of the moments in this story.

Once again, the characters are fleshed out fantastically, even minor characters such as Lee Jordan (who commentates the Quidditch matches in a very entertaining manner). All of them are extremely memorable and, even in just this second book of the series, very familiar to the reader. It is a tribute to Rowling's writing of these characters that I never mix up my Professor Sprout with my Professor Flitwick - each of the people who roam the wizarding world have their own characteristics and personalities.

The little details also charmed me. I love the fact that the students have to turn in essays of a certain length in inches on their rolled parchment, rather than word count or pages. I enjoy the Dickensian element of the story - the quills for writing, the clothes and robes. The descriptions of the feasts are unbelievable - they make you wish you could be transported to eat there.

This is not my favourite of the seven in the series for reasons detailed above, but it is still a great read!

For a long time this book was my favorite book of the series. The mystery slowly unravels and the new magic and characters make this book a wonderful installment in the series.

It has an interesting and creative play on racism. Rowling brought the very present issue of not everyone being equal into
Show More
her Harry Potter fantasy in a way that children and adults can really understand and appreciate. Certainly this novel is a little bit darker than the first, but it's not by much. And, after all, there has always been two sides, good and bad, black and white, to magic--and to life.

So many elements of this story are relevant for today. Ginny's insecurities attending a new school, the feeling of not belonging due to circumstances beyond your control, loyaty to friends, issues of abandonment....they are all here in the Chamber of Secrets.

The end of this book always made me want to jump out of my chair and cheer!

This was a fun read, very much like the first book only with a greater span on the introduction of characters and more of Harry Potter's past in relation of what-the-hell-is-going-on.

I had one issue with this book, and this is a common thing new writers often suffer from. When writing, authors
Show More
always want to improve on the previous novel. In this case, Rowling tried to expand on the number of events going on with Harry & his cohorts. The issue here is she tried to do that without expanding too much on the number of pages; so all of the scenes are shorter, choppier, and essentially rushed. As this is only her second publish book, this is not her fault.

I have talked to other readers of the series, and they tend to agree with each other that this is the weakest book of the series and that it gets much better with the third.

We shall see.

Today I decided to review JK Rowling's second book in the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Harry Potter faces all the school things a muggle-born boy might only, of course, Of course, Harry is anything but normal. As an infant, his head is scarred by Voldemort's death
Show More
curse, which nearly destroyed the Dark Lord. Now the boy is a twelve-year-0ld wizard in his second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

In this book, Rowling introduces a division in the wizarding world, between those who believe wizards should come from wizard-only ("pureblood") families, and people who accept the wizards from muggle-born parents. This concept forms the foundation for much of the plot for the next 6 novels. Lord Voldemort and his followers have done much over the years to impede muggle-borns (who they derisively call "mudbloods") in every way possible. The followers and descendants of Salazar Slytherin are noted for their hatred of muggle-borns wizards.

The crux of the matter is this: where does Harry belong? He was almost placed in Slytherin house. He is a Parselmouth, a wizard who can communicate with snakes, which is an extremely rare ability, noted as a gift possessed of Slytherin. Somewhere beneath halls of Hogwarts is the fabled Chamber of Secrets, guarded and unseen by Slytherin's monster. Harry, who knows little of of his own family, is terrified he is Slytherin's heir, and is suspected of initiating the attacks on muggle-born students throughout the school.

Harry struggles with who he is, much as we do. Are we beings who are controlled by nature, or by the choices we make? At the height of Harry's self-doubt Dumbledore insists that "only a true Griffindor could have pulled [Griffindor's sword] out of the hat." Despite this, the story doesn't read as a morality tale. It is filled with action and, truth be told, reads more as a school whodunnit. The reader is constantly asking, "Who is the Heir of Slytherin?" and "Who or what is petrifying the students?" This in itself isn't a surprise. Plenty of other novels make the reader ask those questions. The difference is this: JK Rowling makes us care about the answers.

The book is punctuated with humorous anecdotes of the eccentric Defense against the Dark Arts instructor, a few wild and gripping quidditch matches, and of course the grudge between Harry and his Slytherin-house nemesis, Draco Malfoy.

Rowling's writing is, once again, taut. She seldom uses frivolous words and phrases. I particularly appreciate this of her. Nothing is discarded or throwaway in her writing. Forgotten characters from the series's first book resurface a half dozen novels later. A seemingly innocuous mention of a potion or spell at the beginning of a book proves to be extremely important later in the same story. It is appealing to me, both as a writer and a reader, to see how she is not frivolous with words, characters, and most especially, the Magical World she's created.

That said, Her characters are pitch perfect. We remember what it's like to be twelve, and despise someone in school. We remember what it's like to have a best friend who's a girl, to whom we have no romantic consideration. We remember loving, and hating, and thinking too severe, any number of teachers. At that age, we notice girls with frizzy hair and large front teeth. We think puking up slugs is the height of comedy. Not only can Rowling write, but she has complete mastery over every situation in her novels.

The only downside I can think of is the Scholastic (American) edition of the novels: I despise Mary Grandpré's art, and can hardly stomach these covers. As appealing as the novels are, I have to be honest: it's one time when the cover nearly made me judge the book. The Chamber of Secrets is not just for children. It's exemplary in every way. However, the cover made me think it was written for eight-year-olds. After seeing Grandpré's covers, I expected a novel that read in couplets like "Humbledy bumbledy diggledy pum / Draco the Malfoy is silly and dumb." Gods be thanked, I was wrong, and thrilled to admit how wrong I was...

Kudos to her for an exemplary second novel. Of course, I've read the other five, and will review each in turn.

Five stars of five.

For the longest time, I believed Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban to be my least favorite of the Harry Potter books - but I think this book has edged its way up.

Now, granted, there are parts I really enjoy. I love getting to know Ginny Weasley, I love the introduction of Dobby, I can never

get enough of the Dursley's...but I think it's Gilderoy Lockhart that is just a little too over the top for me.

Granted - the movie makes him more bearable, because it puts a face to the horribly pompous person that he is, but overall I find myself increasingly annoyed by his presence in every single important scene and, much like the teachers at Hogwarts, wish he'd just prove himself or get out of the way.

There's a lot that's revealed in this second book, which is a good reason in and of itself to not discount it (Harry and the parseltongue explanation), but in spite of all the good, it's just one of my least favorite books.

Now.. here is where I am going to be a bit odd - because it's actually one of my favorite of the movies. Don't ask me to explain it, but Lockheart doesn't annoy me nearly as much on screen as he does on paper. Make sense? No? Don't worry, I'm confused by it too.

As always, there are small discrepancies between the book and the movie, but nothing horribly out of place (except.. why oh why wouldn't you put Peeves in the movies?!). At least the book is on the shorter side of all the books in this series, so while re-reading I don't have to spend too much time being annoyed by Lockheart.

By the way, I much prefer the movie Moaning Myrtle to the book one as well - because the movie one DOES annoy me and the book one doesn't. I don't make sense, I know.

Better than the first book, but still full of a lot of "show not tell". Maybe that's a good thing for a kids book, to fire the imagination of the story not told, but for an adult it's a bit distracting. Quite how I managed to miss the twist about the bad guy's identity I really don't know...

Year 2 at Hogwarts. Harry is back at the Dursleys for the summer after his first year at Hogwarts and they are treating him like dirt. He has had no contact with his best friends Ron and Hermione and he is beginning to wonder if both his school and his friends were nothing but a dream. When a house

elf named Dobby shows up in his bedroom and wreaks havoc, the Dursleys lock Harry in his room with the promise that he will never be let out. His future looks dim, but then Ron and his brothers Fred and George appear outside Harry's window one night in a flying car and whisk him off to their home, the Burrow, where Harry gladly spends the remainder of his summer holiday. In Diagon Alley they meet their new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher - the unbelievably vain Gilderoy Lockhart. The school year doesn't start off any better than his summer did, as the barrier to Platform 9 3/4 seals itself against Harry and Ron, preventing them from boarding the Hogwarts Express. They get into loads of trouble when they decide to fly Mr. Weasley's car to school, instead - they are almost expelled, they get detention, and Ron receives a Howler from his mother. Everything seems to go downhill from there - Harry starts hearing an evil voice that no one else can hear; everyone learns he can talk to snakes; their new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher is a joke; Ron's wand, broken when their car crash-landed into the Whomping Willow, wreaks havoc with every spell he tries; Draco Malfoy is the new Slytherin Seeker and the whole team has brand new broomsticks; and worse of all, a new and seemingly deadly enemy appears in their midst - the mysterious Chamber of Secrets has been opened and students are being petrified left and right. While everyone else thinks Harry is the Heir of Slytherin, it is up to him, Ron, and Hermione to figure out who it really is before it's too late.

I remember thinking before I read this book that it was my least favorite out of the series (of the ones that I've read). I take that back. I won't say that it's my favorite (it isn't), but I still love it and find it very important to the development of the series. I still loved diving into the
Show More
world of Harry Potter, and I was completely captivated, once again, by Harry's adventures. One of the parts that I particularly enjoy about this book is that we find out that Harry Potter can, in fact, get into trouble and that he isn't as invincible as some people in the wizarding world think. That's not to say that he's not my favorite character out of the book, but J.K. Rowling uses this as a smart move to present her main character with a character flaw--therefore making the story all the more believable. This is one of her strengths in writing these novels. Even though they are works of fiction, she makes it so that readers can actually believe that something of this sort can happen. Another wise move on J.K. Rowling's part, specifically in this book more so than the first book, is that this is where the reader gets to see just how evil Voldemort/Tom Riddle is and the chaos and pandemonium he can reek. Whereas before the reader only heard about horrors he committed in the past, we are able to see in this book that he is still very much a potent threat. One other very important component of this book is the discrimination between pure-blood families, half-blood families and Muggle-borns. Particularly on the part of the Malfoys, we see people who are very racist, if you will. Rowling makes this a very clear part of this novel, making me wonder if it comes into play in future books. The only thing that I have to complain about with this novel is the fact that she reiterates a lot of points from the first book, making it so that you almost don't have to read the first book. I really shouldn't complain about it because it's probably something that she had to do in writing a sequel, but it did get on my nerves sometimes.

On a side note, one of the things I absolutely love about all of these books is that they are, in a way, like solving a giant puzzle. There have been countless times while reading these books that I end up smacking myself in the head, thinking, "Why didn't I think of that?" or "Why didn't I pick up on that?"
