Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

This is a review of “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” by J. K. Rowling. It is the second novel in The Harry Potter Series. It follows “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

Harry has had to go home to the Dursley’s house and the Muggle world for his summer holidays. And they’ve been the most miserable lot of holidays he’s ever experienced. He’s had no word from his friends. It’s almost as if his first year at Hogwarts never happened at all.

The Dursley’s are worse than ever. And when Harry inadvertently ruins a very important dinner of his Uncle Vernon’s, he is punished severely and confined to his small bedroom for the duration of the summer, with threats of being kept home from Hogwarts.

Luckily his best friend Ron comes to his rescue. He spends the remainder of the summer at The Weasley’s home, and returns to Hogwarts. When he and Ron try to get on to Platform 9 and 3/4 to catch the Hogwarts Express they find they can’t. So they devise their own way of getting to school.

It seems that strange things are happening at Hogwarts this year. Frightening things. Mysterious things. Things that are linked to things that happened at Hogwarts 50 years ago…

As I have said before: don’t think you’ve experienced all the Harry Potter Series has to offer you if you’ve only ever watched the films. The books are so much better.

A humorous, creepy, suspenseful mystery.
