By now most people have read the books, I have read the books multiple times because they are so amazing to read. The detail, the characters and plot are out of this world. I really could continue to read Harry Potter for years and years to come. The second story in the world of Harry Potter is Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets.
The Plot of Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets:
“Ever since Harry Potter had come home for the summer, the Dursley’s had been so mean and hideous that all Harry 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 who says that if Harry 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 and a spirit who haunts the girl’s bathroom. But then the real trouble begins-someone is 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?”
Well I remember reading the book for the first time because I hoped that the book was going to be as well written and interesting as the first, of course it was. Still is as I continue to re-read the books.
Now the second book is Harry’s second year. I find the book interesting as you start to see more secrets come out about Harry. For one he can talk to snakes but that is a something the dark lord can do. So why would he have this sort of power? (of course we already know the answer to that). I really though think the foreshadowing is really well down. I love when authors are able to do that. You catch some but not all.
In the book you get to know the Weasley’s, the family I love. All the Weasley’s are fantastic to read about and it is very enjoyable to learn more about them and their lifestyle as Harry is able to live with them for the rest of the summer as they rescue Harry. Out of the Weasley’s I really like them all but I thought it was nice to hear about Ginny. She being the only girl of the family and really the book is centered around what is happening with Ginny, you just didn’t realize that.
Another character I liked hearing about is Tom Riddle. It is always interesting to hear more about him (him being Lord Voldermort). Seeing that he is reaching out even as he is in this weakened state.
J.K Rowling gives Harry Potter a name for itself as the second book came to the page. The mystery of the book will entice you to continue to read and want to learn more about Harry Potter and how he will get out of his predictment.
Now I again will journey to the next book where Harry is meeting a friend and foe in the third book.
So remember if you want you find yourself absorbed into the world of magic pick up the series of Harry Potter.
