The Dursleys are, to put it mildly, unpleasant and the arrival of the house elf Dobby sets in motion a chain of events that ends with Harry, thanks in no small part to a flying car, happily back at Hogwarts.
There are mysterious happenings at Hogwarts and Harry, assisted by his staunch friends Hermoine and Ron set about o the truth to the Chamber of Secrets and look for clues to help them understand the attacks on the children at the school. This is a rich fantasy tale, fuelled by J. The humour, in particular, is once again rich in the narrative, a humour that will make both children and adults laugh at loud.
Gilderoy Lockhart is a superb character that steals the spotlight from Harry and his friends on more than one occasion. Cynics may say that the success of the first Harry Potter book made this success of The Chamber of Secrets inevitable.
That would, however, be extremely amd as this is a fine book in its own rights and deserves to be praised every bit as highly as the original.
The Harry Potter series is a must read for all children as they are best enjoyed when the imagination is undimmed by age. The Harry Potter series cannot lay claim to being the most harry potter and the chamber of secrets book review essay as J.
Rowling has drawn on many influences tue their construction. The lovely thing is that she pays homage to these influences in her own style and this has made cahmber stories compellingly unique. The ability to completely immerse the reader in a fictional world and make it seem so real is her strongest card and her strong characterisation further enhances this. This is a much darker and adult themed book than its predecessor and this again is well played as the books mature along with Harry Potter.
