Tom Riddle: former pupil of Hogwarts; turns later out to be Lord Valdemort Lord Voldemort: evil wizard of the Dark Arts; killed Harry´s parents, but didn´t manage to kill him Harry, Ron and Hermion are back at Hogwarts after the summer holidays. But as soon as the term starts, strange things happen.Several students get petrified. They find a writing on a wall saying: „The Chamber of Secrets has been opened“. Harry, Ron and Hermione find out that the Chamber of Secrets has been built by Slytherin, one of the schoolfounders. Slytherin only wanted students from wizard families at Hogwarts. Inside the chamber there is
something that will help getting rid of the ones who are not from a wizard family. But this chamber, according to the legend, can only be opened by Slytherin´s true heir. However, Harry is soon suspected to do all the attacks on the students. People think, that he is Slytherin´s heir, because Harry can speak to snakes and this is a typical ability for a Slytherin.What´s more, how could he have survived Lord Voldemort´s
attack years ago, when he wasn´t a great Dark Wizard himself??? By chance Harry finds the diary of Tom Riddle, a former student of Hogwarts. But a few days later Harry recognizes that it has been stolen. Just as Hermione finds out how to come to the Chamber of Secrets she gets petrified, too. And suddenly also Ron´s little sister disappears. Ron and Harry manage to
find the entrance to the Chamber. The last way Harry makes on his own - determined to bring Ginny back alive. Harry sees Tom Riddle standing next to Ginny. Tom tells him that Ginny has done all the attacks and that she has stolen his diary. She has written in it and he has written back and
so he got more and more control over her and finally could manage making her things she couldn´t remember. Harry is shocked when Tom Riddle turns out to be Lord Voldemort! Suddenly a huge snake appears and Lord Valdemort tells her to kill Harry. Harry finally manages to kill the snake and Lord Voldemort disappears. Harry and Ginny go to Prof. Mc.Gonagall´s office to explain her everything. There they are not only
expected by Prof. Mc.Gonagall, but also by the Weasley-family, happy to have their daugther back. Finally Prof. Mc.Gonagall tells them that the petrified pupils have turned back to normal again.............
You don't say what is good or bad about the book, the quality of the writing etc. You seem to have just described the story which I found difficult to follow having not read because I have no interest in Harry Potter. You would also benefit from breaking the writing up in to more paragraphs to make it easier to read, Geoff.
