Review: Harry Potter and the Chamber of secrets

Harry Potter is a wizard. He is in his second year at Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. Little does he know that this year will be just as eventful as the last…

My thoughts

I must admit I was dreading reading this one as in my head it was my least favourite from the series but actually I really loved it.

In my head it was just book one rehashed but actually I found it was so much more. You meet Dobby for the first time and Mr Weasley and you get to see the Weasley home for the first time. Yes you could say it was quite similar in format but I really enjoyed following the story of Harry Ron and Hermione as they got a little bit older, a little bit wiser but still up to all their old tricks while still being in that pre hormone phase. I did however forget how darn annoying Lockhart is. Grrrr that man!

A read comfort read and a delight to be sure!


I'm so glad to see you reconsider this book. It was my favorite for the longest time (I think 6 is my fave now but it's hard to choose) and it always made me sad to see people dislike it. I was not the biggest fan of Dobby originally but seeing how he's used in the rest of the series really made me appreciate him here.
