This summer had been terrible for Harry. The Dursleys have trapped him in his room like it was a prison cell. Finally Harry is saved from that terrible house by his friend Ron. And they are off to Hogwarts, but strange things have been happening to them and to the school. First, Harry and Ron couldn't get onto the train, and then more stuff was happening, attacks on students, strange whisperings, spiders, and much, much more. Can Harry save his beloved school before it's too late?

Review

 
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is almost as good as the first one in the Harry Potter series. Almost. But don’t worry, the first book only surpasses this one by a millimeter, which means this book is still five stars and I would still recommend it to everyone of the age 9 or up.
 
It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities. -Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
 
The second book in the famous Harry Potter series that will pull you into the story in the first chapter. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is a fantasy novel about Harry Potter (obviously) who once again has to save his beloved magic school, Hogwarts, from a terrible evil. It is a great novel for fantasy fans, and will be a satisfying read for almost everyone. Personally my favorite character is Albus Dumbledore because he always is very kind and can tell you what he thinks about stuff, which usually helps Harry and his friends around unfair teachers, students, etc., but is also very mysterious. Almost the entire book is based in Hogwarts, besides the little part in the beginning with the Dursleys. Overall I think this book is a great read, just as I hoped, and I think it is a very must must-read (if that’s even a thing) for middle grade readers.

Honestly before I started reading this series I didn’t really know what to expect from J.K Rowling‘s Harry Potter series. I had just heard so much about how great these books are and how everyone should read them at least fifteen times and so on. But the thing I never heard about was what the heck they were about, basically all I knew was that there was a magical school called Hogwarts, there were the characters; Dumbledore and Harry Potter, and that Harry was a wizard. That’s not much compared to the detailed storylines. So I didn’t really know what it would be like reading it, but they definitely met my expectations, whatever they were.
 
Of all the trees we could've hit, we had to get one that hits back. -Ron Weasley, Harry Potter and the Chamber Secrets
