Harry Potter and the chamber of secrets – Book review

Hello Witches and wizards! This is another Harry Potter edition. Today I will be reviewing the second book in the series. And I found this book a little creepy at first, but it is good! And I found out that that wasn’t the scariest book in the series. Anyway, let’s get started!

 Harry Potter is going to Hogwarts again! In fact, it’s his second year! When a house elf (named Dobby (the Malfoys house elf) ) comes to warn Harry to not to go to Hogwarts this year, since something dangerous is going to happen (he didn’t tell what), Harry Potter has a mystery coming through. Harry doesn’t listen to Dobby of course and climbs aboard and goes to Hogwarts. Dobby is trying everything he can to stop Harry, make a doger come after him in the quidditch Match, stopping the entrance so Harry can’t get in and board the Hogwarts express, and almost getting him expelled! Harry doesn’t know why, but then, he thinks he does. Students are turning into stone, and no one knows why or who. But all everyone knows is the chamber of secrets. Hogwarts was founded over a thousand years ago by four powerful wizards: Godric Gryffindor, Salazar Slytherin, Rowena Ravenclaw and Helga Hufflepuff. They chose to split the students into four ‘houses’, each bearing their surnames and featuring young wizards and witches who displayed abilities and personalities they wanted to nurture. The chamber of secrets was built by the heir (Salazar Slytherin) of Slytherin, since all of them had a fight to choose who to teach. Salazar Slytherin wanted to teach only purebloods (come from magical families) not mudbloods (coming to learn from a non-magical family). They all disagreed, so Salazar built a Chamber of secrets, and said, whenever the heir of Slytherin returns, he will be able to unleash the magic, which kills the mudbloods who came to learn. They say a big monster lies in the chamber. Harry wants to solve this mystery with Hermione and Ron. Soon, Harry figures out that he can talk to a snake (parselmouth)! And only Lord Voldemort can speak parselmouth and someone else. And all of them who can speak snakes are in Slytherin. How astonishing! Everyone thinks it’s Harry who turned the mudbloods into stone. But it was not him! Or was it? Harry also starts hearing voices. Like the word “Kill”. He keeps hearing it every time, but no one else can hear the voice. Can Harry, Ron figure out the mystery before everyone in Hogwarts turn into stone? After all, Heromine turned into stone too. Not very lucky to solve a mystery without her. Who did this? 

Another adventure from Harry Potter! Cool right? I give this book 5 ratings. Meet Gilderoy lockheart, a new defense against the art teacher, meet moaning myrtle, thanks to Dobby they got a clue! History is about to repeat itself. Read and find out what happens!
