Book Re-Read Review: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling
veronica | I know these books were written for kids much, much younger than myself but I truly believe this entire Harry Potter series appeals to kids of all ages. I first read this second installment, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, many years ago for the first time and have since read it too many times to count and yet every time I read it again, it’s just like the first time. And no, it’s not because I’m old and losing my marbles! Picking up JK Rowling’s works is exactly how a well written novel should be; familiar, comforting but still exciting.
We are again thrust into the Wizarding world full of magic, mystery and learn that evil can exist in many forms. Harry, Ron and Hermione are tested again as they try to navigate Hogwarts, attending classes and researching the validity of the Chamber of Secrets.
From beginning to end I am completed entranced by each page, well written and rich character and the ongoing story itself. Despite knowing the outcome, I’m still as anxious to see where this goes as Harry discovers who he is and who he is as a wizard.
