Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Why read this one… First off my daughter has been foisting these upon me for many months and secondly Stephen King endorsed them – well that did it for me as I know how much he likes an author to stick to the story. Having read and thoroughly enjoyed the...

Just another sequel? For me, sequels often seem like duller, watered-down shadows of the original classic, meant for harvesting the last remnants of commercial success from a book or film where the end should have been 'Happy ever after'. However there are some exceptions, for example 'Lord of...

Great Read

None

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is the second book in the series that has been wrote by the great author JK Rowling. It follows on from the first book that she wrote and leads on nicely to the next book in the series. The Harry Potter books have been out in the world for quite some time...

“Step Into the Chamber...”

published 22/06/2007

Everything!

Nothing!

Having reviewed Philosopher's Stone, I feel compelled to go through the rest of the series! Again, it is very difficult to write a review of the Harry Potter books, because so much happens. However, I will endeavour to give it my best shot! **Blurb** (from the back of the book) "Harry Potter is a...

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is a childrens novel written by author J.K. Rowling, and published in 1998, making this quite an old book nowadays, but still incredibly popular. I have recently been re-reading the whole set of Potter books as I find them quite easy going as I know the...

really funny and thrilling

but really cruel at the end

When all this trouble around the books of J.K.Rowling started, I really did not want to read them. All this rubbish about a boy who can do magic... But it was only one year ago, when I stood in a shop seeing these small pocket-books. I just had to buy one. And now, not even one year later, I just...

“Wow”

published 23/07/2000

Amazing read

It finishes

This is a really good sequel to Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone or Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone as known in America by Ms. J K Rowling. She is a truly amazing author. She has managed to capture the interest of people of all ages with this truly magical series of books. I think...

“MORE MAGIC”

published 27/11/2001

Another book to hook readers of all ages

none

Having taken the plunge and read the first Harry Potter book (The Philosopher&#8217;s Stone) I am now hooked. So I begged a colleague at work to ask her son if I could borrow the remaining books in the series (being too tight to buy my own). So on Friday, she turned up at work with the remaining...

"The Chamber of Secrets" is Rowling's second book in the Harry Potter series. Inevitably as a follow up, it lacks some of the freshness and inovation of its predescessor, but happily, it builds well on the first book and is largely satisfying. If you haven't read the first book, read some ops...

Better than the first!

You finish it too soon!

Having finished the first book so rapidly and enjoying it so much, I decided to get started on the second book straight away! Right from the start of this book to the very end was action packed adventure, mystery and a little more of Harry Potter's past begins to be revealed! When half way...

Well, I loved the film and quite enjoyed the first book, but the second one &#8211; Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets &#8211; was the first time I had read a book in this series without knowing what was going to happen! So, did it pass the test? Or was it just an over-hyped...
