J K Rowling's sequel to Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone carries on where the original left off. Harry is returning to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry after the summer holidays and, right from the start, things are not straightforward. Unable to board the Hogwarts express, Harry and his friends break all the rules and make their way to the school in a magical flying car. From this point on, incredible events happen to Harry and his friends--Harry hears evil voices and someone, or something is attacking the pupils. Can Harry get to the bottom of the mystery before it's too late? As with its predecessor Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is a highly readable and imaginative adventure story with real, fallible, characters, plenty of humour and, of course, loads of magic and spells.

Brilliant!I felt like this book exactly what I would hope from it. Another year at school and another year of adventures. As these kids learn magic, they learn how to mature and grow as human beings as well. Near the very end of the book, Dumbledore teaches Harry the most valuable lesson of the whol...
This rating refers to the art, not the text. It is a relief to get rid of those ugly covers, but I still have some issues with Kay's illustration choices. Of course, the 20th Anniversary covers (on yet another edition) by the otherwise talented Brian Selznick leaves much to be desired. Don't even ge...
Re-Read:March 26 - March 29 2018If I were a parent I might not send my kid to Hogwarts. LOL Crazy things happen at this school! However these crazy things make excellent reading or in this case listening. I haven’t read this series in a very long time and I’m floored at how much I’ve forgotten or ho...
