    JK Rowling really knows how to write a great book, thats for sure! Although this wasn't my favorite book in the series, it definitely wasn't because it was bad. I loved the plot and conflict, even though it wasn't as intense as the others were. I was definitely shocked at the end...so epic and mind blowing!

    I love this book, of course I do, but the fact remains that this book prominently featured two of my most hated Harry Potter characters. Ginny Weasley and Dobby. There, I said it. I hate them both. In my Harry Potter hate list, Ginny and Dobby probably rank somewhere below Umbridge and Peter Pettigrew. Yeah, you heard me. I hate them that much. The reason I hate Ginny is---well, never mind.

I hate them that much. The reason I hate Ginny is---well, never mind. I don't want to start another shipping war here, the last one was terrible enough, so let the reason for my hatred be implicit and unsaid. Dobby is freaking annoying, yo. All his eagerness and shit - and yeah, I know what happens in the end. Doesn't matter. I still hate Dobby. Dobby is the equivalent of fingernails on chalkboard for me. If he had been my elf, I'd have given him a sock already so he could his whimpering, sniveling ass out of my life. He means well, I know he does, it's just that he's such a frustratingly well-meaning bumbling idiot. “You know what, Harry? If he doesn’t stop trying to save your life he’s going to kill you.” Aaaaaaaand one final note. “Ginny!” said Mr. Weasley, flabbergasted. “Haven’t I taught you anything. What have I always told you? Never trust anything that can think for itself if you can’t see where it keeps its brain?" No particular reason I included that, except for the fact that it reminded me of my ex-boyfriend :3

What can I say that hasn't been said before about this series? What words can do this book justice? I've felt at a loss on how to explain my feelings for these books as I've read them. I didn't experience them as a child and therefore my experience is clearly different than most others on here, but in some ways I think it's just as magical to read these for the first time as an adult as it was for everyone who devoured these as they were published in their childhood. I have kids, so I was constantly wondering how my 5 year old will accept these books when she's a bit older and tried to view the story through her eyes. The holidays are always a busy, stressful time for us. All of our family is a hefty distance to travel to and, on top of that, we're moving into our new place this month. All I could think about was how desperately I wanted to escape all of my adult responsibilities for just a bit each day, and this was the perfect book to do so with. No matter your age, the magical world of Hogwarts is truly spectacular; the characters are such that they stay with you even after the final page is turned and the writing takes you back to a place you weren't sure existed for us old farts anymore. If you have been hiding under a rock for the past 20 years like I have, I highly encourage you pick these books up and get swept away like I did. Time is a precious commodity these days, and you couldn't spend it in a better way than with these precious kiddos.

    Re-Read in December 2015 for Harry Christmas to You This time around I realized how much more entertaining this book is compared to the movie. Nothing against the movie because I LOVE it, but this book has so many more fun scenes!

In this book we get more little hints to events to come in future books (Horcrux stuff, a mention of Voldemort having left a part of himself/his powers in Harry, etc.) WHICH WAS AWESOME. I find that every time I read these books I notice more things, which was definitely true this time around. One thing I did notice, which COULD HAVE SOLVED EVERYTHING: At the beginning of the book when they're leaving for King's Cross, Ginny forgets her diary and has to back for it. SHE NEARLY LEFT IT BEHIND. OH MAN. Overall, this was a great time, but I'm excited to finally get to my favorite books in the series!!!

It is once again exciting to wander across the Hogwarts halls, observing the mysterious facts that involve the protagonists, just like we were there too. This is Rowling's rare gift: making sure that we see through the eyes of Harry, Ron and Hermione.The summer holidays have passed, and the new school year is about to start at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Harry's power is still immature, but Dumbledore's teaching is adamant:«It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities» This time, our young wizards are struggling with the new professor of defense against the dark arts, the dork and vein Gilderoy Lockhart, called to replace Professor Quirrell (died in the previous adventure). However, the joyful atmosphere is soon ruined: strange events begin to happen...Far be it from me to spoiler something of this mystery-fantasy. J.K. Rowling gives us another masterpiece to live, rather than to read. Actually, I do not know if my daughter was more pleased than me to hear this novel, or if I was happier than her to read it and literally interpret it (I even modulated the voices of the different characters). Any excuse to read Harry Potter.Vote: 9 Lettura serale per mia figlia (e seconda rilettura per me). E' ancora una volta emozionante vagare per le sale di Hogwarts e osservare i fatti misteriosi che coinvolgono i protagonisti, proprio come se fossimo lì anche noi. Questo è il raro dono della Rowling. Fare in modo che vediamo con gli occhi di Harry, Ron ed Hermione.Trascorse le vacanze estive, alla scuola di magia e stregoneria di Hogwarts sta per iniziare il nuovo anno. Il potere di Harry è ancora immaturo, ma l'insegnamento di Silente è categorico:«Sono le scelte che facciamo, Harry, che dimostrano quel che siamo veramente, molto più delle nostre capacità» Stavolta, i nostri giovani maghi sono alle prese con il nuovo insegnante di difesa dalle arti oscure, il Professor Gilderoy Lockhart, tanto imbranato quanto vanitoso, chiamato a sostituire il Professor Quirrell, deceduto nella precedente avventura. L'atmosfera gioiosa è presto rovinata, però: strani eventi cominciano ad accadere, associati ad una certa camera dei segreti...Lungi da me spoilerare qualcosa di questo fantasy del mistero. J.K. Rowling ci regala un'altro capolavoro da vivere, più che da leggere. A conti fatti, non so se sia stata più contenta mia figlia di sentirselo raccontare, o se sia stato più contento io di leggerlo e letteralmente interpretarlo (ho perfino modulato le voci dei diversi personaggi). La scusa è buona, in ogni caso.Voto: 9

    I sat down to "read a few pages" of this before bed two nights ago and had to force myself to stop at page 100...then picked it up and flew through the rest the next day. I really enjoyed this one (as did millions of others, obviously) and, with this installment, I am definitely seeing why this is such a beloved series. The magical wizarding world of Harry, his friends, and the folks at Hogwart's is just FUN to read about.

I am in LOVE with Fawkes the phoenix and I adore Dumbledore...And now I am so worried something bad is going to happen to one of them over the course of the remaining books. And, yes, I know it's probably made you gasp in shock that - in addition to never having read the books before now - I have also never seen any of the movies...and I truly have no idea what happens throughout the remainder of the series. I guess it IS possible to blissfully ignore spoilers for over two decades...unless we are talking about Game of Thrones. Good luck making it a fucking day with all the assholes posting every single scene on Twitter. Not that I'm on Twitter... But I digress. So yeah, firstly, loved this book and looking forward to the next one. And secondly, now more of the art on the HP mug I got from OwlCrate a few months ago makes more sense and I totally love it more now, so there's that. Winning all around.

    I am always surprised by J.K. Rowling's ability to make her books an allegory of our modern world and it's big and hideous problems. We all know, after all, that she covered discrimination, wars, hate crime, the Kardashians, etc. Let's take this book for example. Harry goes back to Hogwarts. Now enter Gilderoy Lockhart. A fame enamored charlatan, who knows nothing about anything, except memory spells. So clearly a Kardashian. Now some might ask: do Kardashians know memory spells. And I am always surprised by J.K.

A fame enamored charlatan, who knows nothing about anything, except memory spells. So clearly a Kardashian. Now some might ask: do Kardashians know memory spells. And the answer is clearly YES! Keeping Up with the Kardashians is already on Season 13, so some magic must be at work, otherwise you'd have to think the world has gone mad!!!!! Carrying on, Harry has an awful year, mostly because of the fact that he can talk snake language. Actually all of Harry's life is an allegory about fame and how it can easily destroy you, hence Harry might've been modeled after Lindsay Lohan. But Rowling had to give a moral to the story and because of that Harry ended up fine in the end... mostly. And to crown all of this awful year, he meets Tom Riddle, who is the heir of Slytherin. He also speaks snake language and has a giant serpent for a pet. So definitely a forefather of Taylor Swift. And look at what that those family ties made her do!! Lessons to be learned from here, people! Now, of course, a lot of questions remain: will the Kardashians magic still work for long? Will Taylor have a nose job so she could resemble her grandpa? Will I finish this review already? Only time can tell...

    Overall, I loved this, and I can't wait to start Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban today.

I am so glad my mother never sent me a Howler.

I thought Dobby was annoying in the movie (which I saw when it came out over a decade ago, not having read the book) but I thought he was awesome in the book. In fact, we rewatched the movie last night, and not only was it as unsatisfying as I remember it, it's just a shit adaptation of this book. I thought it was delightful that (view spoiler)[the flying car went into the Forbidden Forest and went feral (hide spoiler)] . Tom Riddle's diary was really, really awesome. The entire idea and execution were fantastic. I loved it when Dumbledore told Harry, "It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities." I hope that, as the series goes on, we have more scenes with him, because I really love his wisdom. My minor complaints seem a little nitpicky, and I suppose that if I'm going to suspend disbelief to accept that wizards are real, I should be able to accept that (view spoiler)[none of the adults at Hogwarts would look in Hermione's fist to see the paper that Harry and Ron found after she was Petrified (hide spoiler)] and (view spoiler)[Fawkes somehow just found his way into the Chamber of Secrets (hide spoiler)] , but I'm an adult and if I'd read this as a kid I wouldn't have cared for a single moment.

    In memory of Alan Rickman who showed us what Severus Snape looks like on the Big Screen. I made myself a promise not to use any stills from any Harry Potter movies in my reviews for any book of the series, but I have to make an exception today January 14, 2016 thus the image above.

I made myself a promise not to use any stills from any Harry Potter movies in my reviews for any book of the series, but I have to make an exception today January 14, 2016 thus the image above. Even people who somehow managed to avoid reading the books and seeing the movies can guess that this book is about Harry Potter's second year the School of Wizardry, Hogwarts. Before he gets there though he had to fight the depression from loneliness as his adopted family does not care about him much and his Hogwarts friends seemingly forgotten about him. Fortunately a magical creature called Dobby shows up and instantly makes Harry's life full of excitement: he is convinced Harry's life is forfeit if the latter goes to Hogwarts, so Dobby makes everything in his power to stop Harry from doing this. Injures and maiming are fair game as long as Harry remains alive. To add to the fun it seems Harry's life as well as that of his friends might really be in danger Dobby hinted at. Like the first one, this book can still fully qualify as a children book however it is darker and it does have some very gloomy and depressing moments; children grew up and matured a little and so is the tale. We get to meet characters familiar from the first book and see their development as well as new interesting ones. Speaking about new people, Gilderoy Lockhart is so full of himself he is excellent. His whole Valentine celebration made me laugh out loud. I think this is the first time we get to meet Lucius Malfoy in person - he is another interesting guy; the last scene with him is excellent. I would like to talk about Harry Potter a little. I saw lots of people say he is not the main hero of the series; he is just a guy who always gets either lucky, or have a helpful friend handy in tight spots. I saw Hermione named the main hero - she is the brainpower behind Harry's successes most of the time. I saw Neville named the main hero - he has the greatest and most unexpected development of all characters. I would respectfully disagree: Harry Potter is the main hero albeit a reluctant one (compare him to Lockhart to see why). For the proof of this look no further than the final confrontation in this novel. This was my reread of the book; I knew exactly what to expect and I was sure I would rate it with 4 stars until I found myself awoke well in the early morning hours finishing this reread despite the fact that I had to wake up early. Any book which can do it to me deserves 5 stars. I do not have anything else to add to what I already said; each installment of the series was analyzed and reviewed countless number of times by better qualified people. I will stop right here.

    Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, J.K. Rowling Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, is a fantasy novel written by British author J.K.

These threats are found after attacks which leave residents of the school "petrified" (frozen like stone). Throughout the year, Harry and his friends Ron and Hermione investigate the attacks.

    Reading HP to ring in the new year may be a new tradition of mine, since I've done just that two years in a row. I haven't read this book since the first time I read it in 5th grade, but I loved it! I never would have thought before that CoS was one of my favorites from the series but I stand corrected.

I can't say for sure why I don't love it as much as the others, but it's just never stood out to me. However, upon rereading it, I am reminded again how great Rowling is at developing a story arc! There are so many hints to later parts of the series in this book! Especially with Tom Riddle showing up, the diary, hints of Ron's affection for Hermione, and overall just building up the characters and storyline. It's also really fun to see things of importance show up early in the story come into significance later on. Here are some thoughts on things I noticed or didn't remember about this book while I was reading it: -Like in one of the Harry Potter video games, Ron and Harry de-gnome the Burrow's garden at the beginning of the book. -Hermione's parents actually go to Diagon Alley and exchange Muggle money at Gringott's! -Why wasn't Nearly Headless Nick's deathday party in the movie? Also he died in 1492 which is when Columbus 'discovered' America. Significant? -"And some old witch in Bath had a book that you could never stop reading! You just had to wander around with your nose in it, trying to do everything one-handed." (p.231) Sounds familiar. -I really wish they had the Valentine's Day party in the movie, with all the dwarves walking around dressed as cupids and delivering love messages. -Aragog is literally my biggest fear. -Apparently Dumbledore, back in the day, was a Transfiguration professor at Hogwarts. -And finally, I knew Voldemort was an heir of Slytherin, duh, but I didn't realize he was the last heir of Slytherin. Dun dun duuuun. 5/5 stars because even when it's my least favorite of the seven, it's still perfect.

I didn't know how much I forgot about this book until I reread it, so I probably enjoyed it very much because I mostly forgot many things in this book. So there are also some things that I want to talk about, Gilderoy Lockhart He was so annoying and irked me so much. Especially in the scene where he set loose of pixies in Defence Against the Dark Arts class and he couldn't even fix this mess! And told Harry, Ron and Hermione to put them back in the cage and he left them, I was like " what the hell? " he's so unbelievable. But I must admit that he made me laugh like in the Duelling Club, he was disarmed by Snape and that scene was so funny until I laughed out loud. I disliked him very much for lying about those stories! He's such a liar. Ugh. Oh and he deserved what he got in the end that he lost his memory because Ron's wand backfired at him. Hermione Granger I was shocked when I realized that Hermione liked Lockhart. That guy was so annoying. Maybe he was charming BUT he didn't even know any useful spells, like when Harry broke his arm, he conjured a spell and that spell caused Harry to lose his bones in his arm! He just made it worse instead of helping him. And even though I was shocked, I also laughed when I knew that Hermione put a Get Well card from lockhart under her pillow when she was in the hospital wing hahahahaha. I guess she really liked him. that scene was just so funny. 😂😂 Well, overall I really enjoyed re-reading this book and I'm going to read the third book now! Bye! ❤️ •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Edit : Rounded it up into 5 stars REVIEW TO COME ON SATURDAY! ^^ 4.8 Stars " It is our choice, Harry, That show what we truly are, Far more than our abilities " Okay guys, before I started reviewing this book, I wanted to tell you something. This saturday, I read this book until 04:30 am and I completely didn't realise that I was reading for 4 hours or so and on that same day I had an economy course with my teacher and I completely forgot about that too until my mom reminded me of it. the course started at 10:00 am o'clock and I woke up at 11:00 am and maybe I'll get into a little bit trouble when I'm coming to school on Monday because of this. But I really couldn't help it! THIS BOOK WAS SO GOOD AND I COULD NOT STOP READING IT!! okay now let's talking about this book! My Opinion omg! this book! I had a lot of feelings! Anger. Sadness. Happiness and many more and the chapter I most loved was The Duelling Club. it was so funny to see Professor Snape disarmed Lockhart until he was flying because of the impact of Professor Snape's spell hahaha. xD I don't like calling Lockhart a Professor because he clearly didn't know any spells that were usefull for his students or anyone... Maybe just a Memory Charm. but it was only usefull for him to do his nasty business. ugh and he was a liar too. all those books he wrote were all faked. If Hogwarts were real, I would be really happy to learn all about Defence Against The Dark Arts. this is the most interesting subject that have really caught my interest since I began reading the first book. what about you guys? tell me on the comment section below! ^^ and that Duelling Club was so amazing! learning how to fight with spells! and what schocked me was that Voldemort was used to be a human! and Voldemort was not his real name. His real name was Tom Marvolo Riddle but he changed it. I mean, not an ordinary human,of course. he was a half-blood. his father was a muggle and his mother was a witch. I knew he was a Slytherin and he studied at Hogwarts too but I never thought him as half-blood was or a child or a teenager. because he was so evil that I couldn't even imagine what he would look like in the past and he *coughs coughs * used to be handsome... oh! I love Quidditch too! I don't really like sports but it's different with Quidditch. Quidditch is wonderful and amazing! I even always scream like " YOU CAN DO IT HARRY! YOU CAN CATCH IT!" and when Gryffindor wins I always scream like " YAY!! GRYFFINDOR! GRYFFINDOR! " Am I weird? hahaaha. AHHH. I wish Hogwarts were real. I wish I were at least a muggle-born. I have only read two books in Harry Potter series but they already have changed my life. thank you guys for reading and liking this review! I hope you guys have a great day and Happy Reading!! ❤❤

    When everyone first read and loved Harry Potter I ignored it. Not for any particular reason but about 10 years ago I didn't think I would be into it. Fast forward a decade and I'm now working my way through what I can say already is a children's classic fantasy series that is up there with The Wizard of Oz and The Chronicles of Narnia.

Not for any particular reason but about 10 years ago I didn't think I would be into it. Fast forward a decade and I'm now working my way through what I can say already is a children's classic fantasy series that is up there with The Wizard of Oz and The Chronicles of Narnia. Harry's existence with his Muggle uncle and auntie is as horrible as ever and he can't wait to get back to Hogwarts after speaking to a mini-elf masochist who essentially predicts his doom and travelling in an awesome magic-infused flying car. Upon returning to Hogwarts it's similar to before, Quidditch lessons, Malfoy being a bit of a tosser, Hermainie loving studying, and the wizarding threesome getting into all sorts of nonsensical antics. A new tutor is introduced this time, Professor Lockhart and I thought he was brilliant mainly due to how awful he was with his tall-tales and celebrity status! This narrative is brimming with ghosts, boys and girls who adore Harry, spiders, and Professor Sprout. The characters are pretty brilliant and I can easily understand why this is adored globally. I didn't need the continuous info-dumps that reminded me what happened in book one but apart from that there isn't really anything negative to say. The ending was surprising with a cool twist, a magic hat, a phoenix, a sword, a diary, and a giant snake. I hope you don't tell me off for these spoilers as I'm sure I'm the only fantasy book reviewer who hasn't read these yet. I'm loving the adventure so far. These books are what I go to for now when I want no-nonsense, uncomplex awesomeness. Love it.

    Before I say anything else, it's important you know that I LOVE HARRY POTTER. In my fingers and my toes. LOVE. That being said, this is my least favorite of the early books (I'll let you know whether it's my least favorite overall after I reread HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX). The reasons are LEGION: 1. Gilderoy Lockhart is a prat and I hate him. 2. Deathday party. It's creepy and gross. 3. Poor Ginny. 4. The trouble Harry and Ron get Mr. Weasley into stresses me out. 5. I don't like snakes. 6. I HATE spiders. 7. Dobby needs to calm the eff down: Before I say anything else, it's important you know that I LOVE HARRY POTTER. In my fingers and my toes. LOVE.

Dwarves dressed as cupids, delivering singing valentines. 2. MOLLY WEASLEY. 3. Ford Anglia in the wilds of the Forbidden Forest. 4. Polyjuice Potion 5. Gnomes shouting "geroff." 6. (view spoiler)[Lucius Malfoy getting taken down a peg. (hide spoiler)] SO. Even if this is my least favorite, it's still Harry Potter, and Harry Potter = AWESOME. If you haven't already, READ IT. If you have read it, read it AGAIN. That is all. My other reviews for this series: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)

    "It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities." - Albus Dumbledore Such a wise wizard. You know how sometimes when you read the first in a series and it turns out so much better than you originally anticipated, it makes you a little apprehensive when starting the sequel? Well, I felt that way before starting this, but I can definitely say that Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is another fabulous installment in the rightfully beloved Harry Potter series! And while I will admit to not loving it quite as much as "It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities." - Albus Dumbledore Such a wise wizard. You know how sometimes when you read the first in a series and it turns out so much better than you originally anticipated, it makes you a little apprehensive when starting the sequel? Well, I felt that way before starting this, but I can definitely say that Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is another fabulous installment in the rightfully beloved Harry Potter series! And while I will admit to not loving it quite as much as its predecessor, I still enjoyed it a great deal. I think the reason for my not liking it as much can be mostly credited to the introduction of a new character, Professor Lockhart. Lockhart is an annoyingly pretentious wizard who is completely full of himself, and the majority of his teachings were based on his own life and his supposed brushes with death that he escaped only because of his "heroism" and great knowledge of the magic arts. (view spoiler)[Riiiiiiiiight. (hide spoiler)] In a summary, I didn't find the story involving Lockhart quite as interesting as Harry's realization of his true abilities and the escapades of his first year at Hogwarts. But HP II undoubtedly still has plenty of hilarious moments and magical wonders - not to mention the lovely cast of characters - to more than compensate for this particular installment's slightly lacking plot. Hence the five stars. :) (view spoiler)[ Very clever Ms. Rowling, very clever indeed. (hide spoiler)] FAVORITE QUOTE: "I've heard you hate those Muggles you live with," said Ernie swiftly. "It's not possible to live with the Dursleys and not hate them," said Harry. "I'd like to see you try it." Next up is Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and I'm very much looking forward to it. ********************************************************** My reviews of other titles in this series: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Can I appreciate the beginning of the book, the first chapter, the title, how it is started, how it summarized the events on the last book & let us drown in the world again. craving for magic. I always love the beginning of every HP book, it is very unique. "... Harry Potter wasn't a normal boy. As a matter of fact, he was as not normal as it is possible to be." & how suddenly everything goes wrong. XD in this book, wizarding world expanded. we're more into this world. how do a wizard family actually live; by knowing the amazing Weasleys. we meet new great characters; we didn't know in the first book like Mr. Weasley. also more Fred & George & Mrs. Weasley.... full of intriguing Backstories, Mysteries, Histories, Riddle & plot twists! Awesome! many fun moments & laughter because of Ron Weasley's comments. & don't forget young Harry being sassy. how could everyone (in the book, idk about the fans, but I know I, myself, didn't think like that.) think of Harry like that!? (view spoiler)[being the one who attacked students? just because he is a parseltongue? he's not pureblood mania, like Malfoy. Dammit! his friend is muggleborn. he is a good guy. (hide spoiler)] tho I like to see my favourite characters under pressure. I think I'm the only one who likes Lockhart (not much, but still), I mean he was annoying & (view spoiler)[a liar & actually a fraud (hide spoiler)] , but hilarious, he made the scenes funny because of his nonsense megalomaniac & of course Harry & Ron's expression toward him. XD oh one more thing, I love Tom too! brave young Harry, saved the day! - World building: ★★★★★/5 Characters: ★★★★★/5 Written style: ★★★★★/5 / Fun: ★★★★★/5 / Feelz: ★★★★★/5 (Harry is so brave & caring for his friends & the others... *tears of Joy & pride*) plot: ★★★★★/5 General idea: ★★★★★/5

    This is the worst book in the Harry Potter series. The fact that I’m still giving it four stars sort of says something about my opinion for the rest of the series. It’s a wonderful world. The magic is alive and the storytelling is extraordinary, but here are three reasons why this could never be five stars in my estimation like the rest: 1. Gilderoy Lockhart.

Nobody in the school gets Ron a new wand and they let him run around the school casting dangerous spells. The first one is a genuine reason and the last two mere petty grievances. There was also something a little off about this book. The writing wasn’t quite at the same level. From here though, it only got better!

    ❝It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.❞ Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets starts off where Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone left off. Harry goes back to his old home for summer and spends time with his ugly family, The Dursleys. They are no different then they were before but in fact are even more rude.

His name is Dobby and he is known as ❝It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.❞ Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets starts off where Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone left off. Harry goes back to his old home for summer and spends time with his ugly family, The Dursleys. They are no different then they were before but in fact are even more rude. As Harry thinks about going back to Hogwarts, a new and ugly creature appears in Harry's bedroom as Harry returns upstairs. His name is Dobby and he is known as a house-elf, one that is treated badly. But Dobby didn't come to chat with Harry, he came to warn him. Warn him about Hogwarts and save him, telling him he must not return to Hogwarts. He says this because he is trying to warn Harry and tell him that he can put the whole school in danger including his friends and himself. But because Harry does not listen and is actually able to go back to Hogwarts thanks to his best friend Ron, a lot of things happen this second year and some aren't the best. Some include agony being made and being taken back in time, a new professor named Gilderon Lockheart, a spirit/ghost who died in Hogwarts and now haunts the girls bathroom named Moaning Myrtle, and even events having to do with Ron Weasley's younger sister, Ginny. These aren't the only events happening and the only ones making Hogwarts suffer. They actually have nothing to do with it. There is something—or maybe someone—who is leading Hogwarts to danger and putting everyone at risk. This person, or thing, is turning students into stone, writing on the walls, and killing a professor's cat. As rumors spread, nobody knows who this might be. It might be Draco Malfoy, since he is known as an evil child wizard in Slytherin, or maybe Hagrid, since he has been in Hogwarts for a very long time, including his studying years there. Or any other professor, including Snape, Dumbledore, McGonagall, or even Lockhart. But if it isn't any of those, then it might just be Harry himself. I really don't know what to say. Words aren't possible because this book was just so wonderful and so fun. There were even more magical journeys and I was so glad everyone has changes and J.K. Rowling decided to changer everyone's character. Well, almost. Where do I start? Harry is still the cute cinnamon roll and I love his precious and cute character. I hate how he had to suffer even more with the Dursley's and had to even go back as the second year ended. I hope he escapes one day for good and never returns because I am so tired of him being treated like shit and like he really does not exist. His family is the only family he really has, yet they treat him like they wish he was dead and didn't survive The Chamber of Secrets. Sure, that's what they wish, but they should show a little more empathy with him and treat him a little better, maybe feed him more food and give him better clothes, let him go out with his owl and have some freedom, let him write back to his friends when they know he is miserable with them, and just be the young Harry Potter he was made to be. Other than that, he is growing and growing into a much better wizard and is slowly learning even more spells, which he ended up using some to defend his friend and fight Draco with. Ron, oh Ron he is so cute and precious but so dumb in such cute ways. He still can't figure out the right magic spells and how to use them, making the rest of the crowd laugh at him because of his silly actions. He's so funny and when he's worried, his face reactions are so cute but so heartbreaking at times because he is just so adorable. Draco didn't mock him like he did in the previous book and I was glad for that but he still received laughter from others because of the message he got from his mother, the way he tried learning transfiguration, and for needing his mother to defend him. He isn't learning quick like Harry but I know the time will come and he will become a good wizard and be able to change things into the right objects, be able to drive a flying car correctly, and defend his friend like he defended him when he needed the saving. Hermione was probably my favorite. She has changed so much and isn't a bossy high-top nerd anymore. She's always at the top, able to answer questions before anyone and earning Gryffindor points, and that is the reason I loved her a lot more. What would Gryffindor, Harry, and Ron do without Hermione? Like my friends have said, probably dead or lost because they can't figure out what to do or how things work. She actually breaks rules in this book to help Harry and Ron and is also helping them with the secrets they are trying to discover. She still supports Harry with his Quidditch matches and is there for them when they need help, even when she wasn't supposed to. You might be wondering what the 4 stars mean? Well, like others, Ginny was my least favorite character. I wish she didn't get in the way and wasn't the reason for the secrets, but she was also really dumb. She acted dumb in front of Harry and tried stepping up for him, only embarrassing herself. She was embarrassed by her mom because she was accepted into Gryffindor, but she was still dumb. She didn't have to listen to Riddle and could've made the choice of leaving everything out. Of course, the book would be different and maybe quite boring if it wasn't for her, but I still didn't like her character majority of the time. I hear she's one of the least favorite characters and I can see why. She's pretty annoying and is always blushing when she sees Harry. I'm guessing she likes him? Dobby was not my favorite either, only because he tried telling Harry what to do but at the end, sure, I liked him and was glad he was free because Malfoy was not a good master for him. He kicked and hit him for no reasons, so I'm sure that the reason for his actions when Harry told him to sit. The friendship has definetely grown and Hermione, Ron and Harry are just best friends. They worry about each and everything about them together is just so cute. I will admit that I liked this one a little less than the first one, but just a little bit. I don't use half stars or anything anymore, so don't be thinking the first one was better and this one had its flaws because it really didn't disappoint me. I just hated some characters and that happens in all novels, and Draco is still one of them. He's an asshole, fight me! Like him or not, I feel like I will always hate him. I feel like he will grow out to be just like this father and become an evil wizard like all Slytherins do. I know his appearance won't change and his personality won't either. He treats Harry like shit as well because of who he is and sometimes he thinks he's cool because of his father. But his father is nothing but a lousy and loud man that tries to show off because of his son and because of what he can afford. There was nothing new about him and I hate him for almost everything. Well, everything actually. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets did not disappoint and left me upset, but it had different flaws than the first one. Bad ones, but I'm sure they'll be fixed sometimes. I just didn't like Dobby at the beginning, but like I said, I was glad he was free at the end and defended Harry from Lucius Malfoy. I know every story has its own improvement and all analyze, but this one might be my least favorite. It's like I see it coming. Overall, I can't wait to see where the next journey takes off and how Harry will escape the Dursley's again.
