Book Review: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling

My rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Another book, another year in the magical world of Hogwarts. With this novel, we see a new Weasley joining the Hogwarts family, a new Defense Against the Dark Arts Teacher who is just a joke, and we learn so much more about Harry. J. K. Rowling is a natural-born storyteller. As this story unfolds, we find ourselves catching more glimpses of the Harry vs Voldemort story/history, another detailed glimpse of Diagon Alley, and meeting so many new teachers and students.

No element of this story was a wasted. Everything melded together to create a suspenseful, action-filled novel that is a wonderful read for people of any age. I’m not a young adult, but I still find this book, and the entire series for that matter, an amazing collection to snuggle up with and read on the weekends.

One of the many things that I loved about these books is that she included so many mythological creatures–creatures that most writers tend to overlook. In this one, there is a basilisk. Not many people know what a basilisk is because it’s not a common creature that is pulled from the mythology books. And because it’s a giant snake, the Harry vs Voldemort story/history came into play.

It’s just amazing. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a starter fantasy book, and I have many times.
