Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling Book Review

Happy Sunday everyone, I am finally back to posting now! Yay! Back to Harry Potter month! So as we continue on with Harry Potter month, I figured I should do a book review for the second in the series. I have some more creative post ideas for the month, so just stay with me.


Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter #2) – J.K. Rowling

So, although I didn’t give it a five out of five stars like I did for the first one, it was still a good book. I don’t know, it just wasn’t as interesting to me as much. Like *SPOILERS* when we found out Ginny was behind letting out the giant snake from the chamber of secrets, I just didn’t find myself caring as much. It just lacked that magical feeling I got from the first one. I think the only reason why I didn’t decide to give this a 3/5 is because the writing is just really good. For middle grade, this is really solid writing, and I love how smooth it is. It isn’t hard to understand, it isn’t so complex where I just can’t follow it. I find myself being able to read like, 100 pages, yet remember everything and I can’t even tell that any time has passed.

Although the writing was excellent, the plot fell short for me and I just wasn’t as interested. I’m reading the third one now, and I’ve heard it’s the best in the series and I am excited. It already has me hooked, and man, am I on a reading kick. I read about 3 (@timtracker) books all in a day on Thursday and I feel so powerful after that, I would love to get through most of the rest of the book tonight and then watch movie #3.

I actually thought that the movie was better than the book. I just felt more interested in the movie, and that doesn’t usually happen. Not that it’s a bad thing, I think I just needed to visualize and see the movie to understand the story more and enjoy it.

How did you guys feel about Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets?
