The Dursleys were so mean and hideous that summer that all Harry Potter wanted was to get back to the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. But just as he’s packing his bags, Harry receives a warning from a strange, impish creature named Dobby who says that if Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts, disaster will strike
And strike it does. For in Harry’s second year at Hogwarts, fresh torments and horrors arise, including an outrageously stuck-up new professor, Gilderoy Lockhart, a spirit named Moaning Myrtle who haunts the girls’ bathroom, and the unwanted attentions of Ron Weasley’s younger sister, Ginny.
But each of these seem minor annoyances when the real trouble begins, and someone — or something — starts turning Hogwarts students to stone. Could it be Draco Malfoy, a more poisonous rival than ever? Could it possibly be Hagrid, whose mysterious past is finally told? Or could it be the one everyone at Hogwarts most suspects . . . Harry Potter himself?
I loved the first book so there’s no surprise that I love the second one as well. The characters are showing more of their true colors through an amazing adventure that of course happens during the second school year of Harry, Ron and Hermione’s at Hogwarts.
In this book the adventure is actually made out of an old story. There were four professors who built Hogwarts and professor Slytherin made a secret room that hides a beast that can kill the wizards born without a pure wizard blood. He thought that pure bloods should be the one working with magic, letting no room for half wizards in the school. The monster broke loose because the chamber of secrets was finally opened.
I recommend them with all my heart and I will finish the serie in time, don’t want to waste it too fast. Oh and my love for Severus grows only stronger.
