Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - J.K. Rowling,Mary GrandPré

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 whole school year. It was well worth reading to get to.
Why do I hate the Malfoy's so much? They take villainy a little too far. Ugh.
The stand-out character was definitely Dumbledore's phoenix! Just sayin'. I love that bird!
Can't wait to watch the film! I've seen it years ago, but want a refresher now. And onto book 3 we go!

March 26 - March 29 2018

If 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 how much I remember as the movie. There are so many nuances and plot points and it’s just amazing. I look forward to the next book.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - J.K. Rowling 5 stars

"Harry — I think I've just understood something! I've got to go to the library!"
And she sprinted away, up the stairs.

"What does she understand?" said Harry distractedly.

"Loads more than I do," said Ron, shaking his head.

"But why's she got to go to the library?"

"Because that's what Hermione does," said Ron, shrugging. "When in doubt, go to the library."

KYD Green Round: Crime Scene Card Guess - Team MbD / Lillelara / TA
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - J.K. Rowling,Stephen Fry

 

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets matches at least 2 of the tasks for the "Planet Camazotz" crime scene card: "set in a different dimension of this world" and "published between 1918 and 2007".  If you award an "assist" to Hermione Granger for, inter alia, stealing the recipe for and concocting the polyjuice potion, and for providing the final crucial clue about the entrance of the Secret Chamber (even if Harry and Ron had to wrench it out of her petrified hand), arguably this book might even fit at least 2 1/2 of the tasks for this card.

I have never been a big Harry Potter fan and I haven´t even read book six and seven yet. But the audiobooks narrated by Stephen Fry might actually change this. He is a genius, at least when it comes to the narration of these books (I guess he is a genius in every other aspect as well, but lets just stick to the audiobooks for now). The way he uses his voice and how the whole audiobook is produced adds a whole new dimension to these stories. I love listening to them.

 

The Chamber of Secrets will never be my favorite Potter, though, and I can´t even say why that is. Probably because Hermione is missing for a good part of the book, I always feel there is something missing when she isn´t around. On the other hand there is Gilderoy Lockhart, who I have the slight suspicion about that he might be Reinhold Messner in disguise (Lockharts "Year with the Yeti" book made me chuckle).

 

So five blazing stars for the narration, 4 stars for the story, 4.5 stars overall.

 

I can´t wait for the Prisoner of Akzaban, my favorite Potter so far (both book and movie) and I can´t wait to start listening to it maybe today, maybe tomorrow morning.
