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 punish himself by banging his head into the wall or shutting his ears into the oven. Poor Dobbie. I loved the flying car and how the boys stole it when they couldn´t get on the train to get to the school. Harry and Ron narrowly escaped expulsion from school and were warned not to get into any more trouble. Then, Harry starts hearing this strange voice that no one else can hear saying, ¨kill....kill......¨ He follows the voice and finds Mrs. Norris, a cat that roams the halls of the school petrified over words painted on the wall saying that the Chamber of Secrets has been opened and warning that all muggle born would be killed. Of course, Harry, Ron, and Hermione are going to try to figure out what is going on for themselves since the staff at the school don´t seem to be able to.
I enjoyed reading this book again but it made me sad thinking about my cute little boy that is now not so cute and a lot more hairy.
I was so excited to start reading this book to K. We read book one and he really seemed to enjoy it so I decided he was ready for book 2. Harry Potter is back at Hogwarts and it won't be an easy year for him it seems that something will try to stop him from going to Hogwarts because something bad is suppose to happen. On top of that Harry is hearing parseltongue yet he doesn't understand what he is doing until he is told. Something starts scaring students and it has the teachers worried but hey leave it up to Harry and his two friends to try to find out what is going on at Hogwarts and try to stop it.
The author did a great job with this magical world! Makes me wish that this could really happen in real life!
K enjoyed the story yet he wants to see the movie again because he thinks doing magic is pretty cool.
We will be starting book three soon, K decided we needed a break because Harry Potter is a big book!
