We’re marking 20 years since Harry Potter introduced us to a fantastic world of wizadry here. This second offering from J.K. Rowling, the Chamber of Secrets, is a stone cold classic.
Whilst the first book in the series (the Philosopher’s Stone) was brilliant, it looks positively pedestrian next to the amazing adventures in Chamber of Secrets. This time around Harry, Ron and Hermione get mixed up in all kinds of trouble, flying cars, meeting giant talking (hungry) spiders, dodging enormous snakes slithering through the halls of Hogwarts – not to mention trees that fight, elves that punch themselves in the head, diaries that talk, and wizards that duel.
There’s nothing not to love in Harry’s second outing. It builds on Philosopher’s Stone brilliantly – the depth of the new world we’re introduced to is astounding at times – and Rowling’s humour shines through continously.
Yep, highly recommended!
So what do you think? Have you read it? Did you like it? Would you recommend it?
