In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, the summer after Harry’s first year at Hogwarts has been his worst summer ever... the Dursleys more distant and horrible than ever before. But just as he’s packing his bags to return to school, a creature named Dobby the house-elf announces that if Harry goes back to Hogwarts, disaster will strike. And it turns out, Dobby is right. Harry and Ron miss the Hogwarts Express, so they fly to school in a blue Ford Anglia, crash landing in the notorious Whomping Willow. Soon other worries accumulate: the outrageously stuck-up new professor Gilderoy Lockhart; a ghost named Moaning Myrtle, who haunts the girls' bathroom; the strange behavior of Ron's little sister, Ginny Weasley; rumors about the "Chamber of Secrets," a cavern buried deep below Hogwarts; and a magical diary owned by Tom Riddle, a Hogwarts student of long ago. Harry is also shocked to discover that he can speak Parseltongue, the language of snakes - a rare ability that Lord Voldemort also possessed - and that anti-Muggle prejudice exists in the Wizarding world, even affecting Harry's friend Hermione. But all of these seem like minor concerns when someone starts turning Hogwarts students to stone: an evildoer said to be the fearsome Heir of Salazar Slytherin, on of the founders of the school. Could it be Draco Malfoy, Harry's most poisonous rival? Could it be Hagrid whose mysterious past is finally told? Or could it be the one person everyone at Hogwarts most suspects: Harry Potter himself?

But then the illustrated edition came out and it is spectacular. The same amazing story that captured m...
Wow.... This story really threw me off. From suspecting Draco Malfoy to the main character Harry Potter... Every evidence just throws me off!! It is only until the end where this book shocks you with the main problem!
My Harry Potter reread continues (though I started it last year . . . oops) with The Chamber of Secrets, one of my personal favorites in the series. I think the general opinion is this is one of the lesser Potter novels, but I think it’s a lot of fun. Strange happenings are going on in Harry, Ron,...
I love listening to Jim Dale's narration of these books so very much. I am trying to make things and driving back and forth to KY and the hospital, I listened to this book as I drove and worked on my knitting and crochet. I thoroughly enjoy these books.
I initially read this book to my son when it first came out. I think he was 5. That was a really long time ago and I couldn´t remember the story so I decided to read it again. I am surprised at how much I had forgotten. I love Dobbie, the house elf and how he would do something bad and then puni...
