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. There is no need to have read Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone to enjoy this book. However, if you have read it, this is the book you have been waiting for...

Maybe some of it is colored by the fact that I am older. And maybe some of it is by the fact that I am realizing that I don't particularly ca...
So on my YouTube channel I am participating in a readalong called potterwatch. Each month we are reading a Harry Potter book and watching the film that goes with it. Last month we did the first book and first movie. So this month it's book 2 turn. I still have to watch the movie for the book. So thi...
(original review, 2000)So millions of readers think these books are brilliant. It takes an odd sort of character to say, in this context, "frankly the books are rubbish".Very odd.It seems so much more natural, and logical, to say something like "I think these books are badly written ("he was sat the...
