This book is the second book in the Harry Potter series. I think this is one of the most interesting novels as it explores more different characters in the series, introducing us to Dobby and Ginny as very interesting characters in the Harry Potter universe. We read a bit of the past in this novel from before Harry's birth and see how Voldemort showed his evil ways since he was a teenager. The story direction is way faster than the other Harry Potter books. This one is much quicker. It's also very interesting as it's another journey for Harry and his friends to finish. This novel shows their character development from the first one. I recommend this novel to anyone who likes fantasy. I would give this novel a rating of 5 out 5 stars.

I recently read the book: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, by J.K. Rowling. This is the second adaptation to the Harry Potter series. In this book, you see how differently the Dursleys act when Harry comes back from his first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. In this book, you experience more of the characteristics of the characters. You get introduced to the youngest (and only girl) Weasly: Ginny. The Weasleys open up to Harry as a real family, making The Burrow his second home. You also see more of the Malfoy family and their past actions. This book has more adventure and mystery, really captivating you into the story. In this book, J.K. Rowling also describes Tom Riddle’s (Voldemort) childhood and how similar it was to Harry’s childhood. The problem starts to get more complicated for the golden trio. This book is definitely just as captivating as the first one. I’d also recommended this for every age group. I rate this book a 5/5.

The Chamber of Secrets is the second instalment in the Harry Potter series. Harry Potter is about to start his second year at Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He expects it to be a normal year, but then a secret chamber opens, muggle-born students are attacked and Harry must put his life in danger once more. I enjoyed this book because it is packed with action, fantasy and creativity. My favourite part is when Harry goes back in time to witness the expulsion of his friend Hagrid when he was a young boy at Hogwarts. I would recommend this to anyone ages 9+ who loves fantasy stories. It is easy to read and the author, J. K. Rowling, did a great job of making the reader feel like they are right there with Harry experiencing all of his his adventures. It is definitely worth 5 stars.
