Forced to spend his summer holidays with his muggle relations, Harry Potter gets a real shock when he gets a surprise visitor: Dobby the house-elf, who warns Harry Potter against returning to Hogwarts, for terrible things are going to happen. Harry decides to ignore Dobby’s warning and continues with his pre-arranged schedule. But at Hogwarts, strange and terrible things are indeed happening: Harry is suddenly hearing mysterious voices from inside the walls, muggle-born students are being attacked, and a message scrawled on the wall in blood puts everyone on his/her guard – “The Chamber Of Secrets Has Been Opened. Enemies Of The Heir, Beware” .

  1. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets being the second and one of the most jaw dropping and astonishing novels in the Harry Potter series, depicts the school year of Harry and his peers/teachers in a magical and exceptional school. As the year goes on, mysterious occasions continue to occur as a result of the Chamber of Secrets opening once again. Harry along with his two closest friends persevere to find the answer to this unidentified incidence.
    Just like the first, it is superbly written along with fantastic explanation of each scene making it feel as though you, the reader, are apart of the story.

    The Chamber Of Secrets is one of my favourites because of how adventure packed it is! Ron and Harry miss the train to Hogwarts, so they use Mr.Weasley’s magic muggle car. when they started flying in the car the invisibility button ran out of power and the car can clear to view. they decide to stay near the train track to avoid being seen but the Hogwarts train comes up behind them and they are forced to fly up back in the sky above the train. Harry had a very near miss with falling out of the car whilst in mid air. They make it to the school barley, mind you, and a Hogwart-famous tree called the Whomping Willow almost bashed them to death. If the tree didn’t kill them then leader of their house, Professor McGonagall certainly would. to their surprise she did not but only thanks to their very friendly principle Professor Dumbledore. OK, I will let you guys find out the rest when you read the book or watch the movie. What I am doing is I am reading the book and then watching the movie to get a better understanding of the story line.

  5. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the Chamber of Secrets, even though it was probably one of my least favourite out of the series it was still amazing!

    I enjoyed how they described Voldemort and how he is portrayed in a book for the most of the book. I enjoyed the mysterious aspect it had and how Voldemort would take over the mind of the students.

    I enjoyed the description and thought that went into the monster that was petrifying the students of Hogwarts. I especially liked how J.K made it so the students didn’t die because of the reflection.

    9/10

  8. The harry potter series is a must watch/read!!! If you haven’t watched these movies or read these books you are definitely missing out on something. I have read all the books and watched the movies they are simply fantastic! I love them so much, I believe that every human on this planet should definitely read these books especially because even though the movies are very good the books I think just provide that little bit of extra detail. The books also leave you to read and use your own imagination. So if you haven’t yet read the books, please do !!!!

  9. This is the second book in the Harry Potter series and is not a disappointment to the Philosopher’s Stone. This book continues the thrilling tale of Harry’s life at the Dursleys and at Hogwarts.
    When a house – elf appears in Harry’s bedroom telling him not to go back to Hogwarts and the gateway to platform 9 3/4 seals itself and doesn’t let Harry and Ron through, Harry has a feeling that someone doesn’t want him to go back. Then funny things start happening at Hogwarts; a message on the wall written in blood, muggle – borns being attacked and strange voices only Harry can hear. Read this amazing book to find out more of Harry’s thrilling second year of Hogwarts.

    Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is the second book in the Harry potter series. Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts for the second time and is welcomed by friends, quidditch and teachers that care for them As the tale unfolds, Harry has to deal with humility, confrontation and even hate. I love this book so much and it is honestly my favourite book in the whole series. It doesn’t matter what type of books you like to read, the Harry Potter series has something for everyone. It has action, drama, mystery and even in the later books, a bit of romance. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone, no matter their age/interests. This book is a little bit darker than the previous one, though I would think still suitable for a young child. I think that J.K. Rowling is an amazing writer that makes her books well detailed but also super interesting. I would rate this book a 9 out of 10, it is one of my favourite books of all time

  12. Harry lives in a family of non-magic people who wizards call Muggles. His parents died when he was one, and he was left with his mother’s sister. He was never liked by them.
    Harry was famous to wizards because he defeated the powers of another wizard when he was one. It was a bit of an accident, so he was still treated normally. Even this school has its ups and downs. Harry has enemies like Drako Malfoy and his least favourite teacher Snape.
    There were lots of stories told about the chamber of secrets and Harry and his friends, Ron particularly tried to solve the mystery. They had to find the entrance to the chamber, what was inside it, and who had been opening it and letting the monsters inside it out to attack the students. In the end, they found out that Ron’s sister, Jinny was behind it but she had been under control by a diary. With this diary, you write in it and a person named Tom Riddle would write back. But Tom was an evil wizard so he managed to learn enough about Jinny to control her. Personally I enjoyed this story. People at any age would enjoy so long as they can understand the language used. The good thing about the story was the more they found out, the more it confused them. I recommend this book for anyone who loves to read because it is a pretty heavy book!!

  14. I loved this book and I really enjoyed reading it, because it was magical and the story line was great, it helped you to keep reading to find out more. My favourite part of the book is when Ron breaks his wand and uses Spello-Tape to repair to, but this doesn’t work to well as his spells backfire onto himself. My favourite character in this book is Dobby, this is the first time that we see Dobby in the series and he has come to warn Harry. I like Dobby because all he is trying to do throughout the book is help and save Harry from being in grave danger. I loved every moment of this book and wouldn’t change anything, because J.K Rowling is an amazing author and every detail means something important. I would recommend this book to everyone, this is such a well known series for a reason and everyone would love it. The type of person who would like this book is someone who like fantasy and mystery, and who also love other popular book series, such as Mortal Instruments.

    The Harry Potter series is my favourite! The Chamber of Secrets brings us back to the Magic of Hogwarts (even if it took a bit of time!). In this book, we meet Dobby, an Adorable House-Elf that tries to stop Harry Potter from hurting himself badly, but being the person Harry is, he still does. We learn more about Harry’s mysterious past, and go on even more adventures!
    My favourite Character is definitely Dobby! He is so cute and he is always so determined! I especially like the way he talks! Hermione is still a great character, and she is spending even more time in the library! I strongly recommend this book as you will not be disappointed! Follow Harry through journey to the Chamber of Secrets, there is a surprise around every corner!

    I really enjoyed this book.

    My favourite part was when Harry saved Ginny from Tom Riddle (Voldemort) and when ‘Tom Marvolo Riddle’ was rearranged into ‘I am Lord Voldemort’.

    My favourite character was Ron, because he had to fight for his sister, and even though they fought ALOT he still wanted to save her, but I was kinda upset that Harry went on and Ron was left to deal with Professor Lockhart.

    I relate to Hermione Granger because she is smart, she is always paying attention and she thinks straight in an emergency.

    If I could change something, I change it so that Harry and Ron swapped places and Ron confused Tom and Tom sent him back to get Harry but Ron says no and drags his sister along the ground behind him and Tom just looks at him like; whaaa?; and Harry accidentally does a charm on Lockhart turning him into a frog, and he tries to turn him back but it doesn’t work. That would be so funny.

    I completely recommend this book for people who are into fantasy and magic and who have already read the first book (philosophers stone). If you have just read Philosophers Stone read the next books and you will enjoy the books as they go on.

    I liked this book because it had adventure, mystery and of course magic! In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Harry, Ron and Hermione are in their second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry when Harry starts to hear a disembodied voice moving around the school. Lord Voldemort (you-know-who) is possessing Ron’s sister, Ginny, to set a basilisk on the muggleborns and squibs of Hogwarts. Hermione is petrified and Harry and Ron discover what is causing the attacks and go down into the Chamber of Secrets and defeat 16 year old Tom Riddle (Lord Voldemort/you-know-who). The books is based on Teamwork, friendship and magic, and amazing combination! My favourite part of the book is when Ron, Harry and Lockhart are down in the chamber and Lockhart loses him memory. My favourite characters are Hermione, the girl with all the brains, and Ginny, because she is really kind and sweet to everyone (except Draco Malfoy). I wouldn’t change anything about this book, it is perfect. I would recommend this book to people who are 8 years or older. If I was doing the series I would say 10 years because the ones from the goblet of fire onwards are definitely more intense. I would give it 5/5 easily.

My favourite part of the book was when Harry was in detention with Lockhart and he was signing all the pictures to give to fans. I liked this scene because it shows how much Lockhart is self-centred. My favourite character is Hermione because she is always there for the 2 boys and she has the brains to figure out the secrets and mystery. I can also relate to Hermione because like I said before she has the brains and while I was reading this I was always on the same page as her and I was always worried bout what the 2 boys were up to next.

I really enjoyed this book, and loved the new characters introduced which made it more interesting. My favourite character is still Harry, but I really loved Dobby in this book. Dobby was warning Harry not to return to Hogwarts, and Harry’s kindness caused Dobby to go crazy and try to punish himself. Dobby was a really kind, caring character who cared for Harry’s life, blocking the entrance to platform 9 and 3/4 so that he couldn’t return to Hogwarts. My favourite part was when Harry and Ron drove a flying car to Hogwarts and then crashed into a tree that hit them back. That was a crazy adventure. I also liked it when Harry was in the Chamber of Secrets battling battling a Basilik (a huge dragon/lizard creature) and meeting a young Voldemort. I have no least favourite parts because this book is amazing and I would not change anything at all. It has so much action and adventure in this book, so I would absolutely recommend this book to someone else. I would recommend it to anyone who likes books in general, because everyone has to read Harry Potter at least once; they are worldwide famous for a reason. Anyone who likes action, adventure, fantasy and going into another world would love this book, with no age limit.

  36. Harry Potter’s second year at Hogwarts is nothing short of thrilling and terrifying. In this book we begin to discover more about Voldemort’s past. The way Rowling describes what is happening is truly amazing and will capture you and drag you into the magical world with Harry and his peers.

    The plot has action aplenty and is quite mysterious. It will keep you guessing so you certainly will never become bored of the book. The golden trio’s friendship continues to grow and they become closer than ever.

    Beyond the story line so many factors lie behind the characters; coming of age, overcoming gender, society and being different. This entire series is great and I would recommend it to anyone. It is perfect for children to read any age, even if it is read aloud to them.

    “Harry potter and the Chambers of Secrets” has to be one of my favourite films of all time! It is the movie out of all the Harry Potter movies that I have watched the most. It’s so magical and adventurous! 😀 I use to be terrified of the snake but now I love it. My siblings still find it scary but I am so much more mature than them ;D. My favourite scene in this film is when all the people get petrified…even the cat. I use to look forward to that scene every time I’d watch it because it was so creepy! My favourite character in this book and movie was definitely hermione. She is so cute and matter-of-fact in everything she does. Also the fact that she is a “mud-blood” makes me like her even more because even though one of her parents is a muggle she is still the smartest witch in the school. I rate it 10/10!

  38. The second Harry Potter book picks up brilliantly from the ‘Philosophers stone. I started this book straight after the first one and I wasn’t bored for a second. My favourite part of the movie was when Harry and Ron ‘follow the spiders’ this part gave us an deeper understanding of the plot as well as the characters and who might have opened the ‘chamber of secrets’. My favourite character in this book is Malfoy, he is so cruel and rude but his character really makes the book and it wouldn’t be the same without him. I found when Harry entered the chamber to be really scary and I was really worried for him. I would recommend this book to anyone over the age of 12, because some parts can be pretty scary. I rate this book 9.5/10, I loved it!

    Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by Joanne Rowling

    The perfect sequel from the perfect author I say. The chamber of secrets is one of my favorite Harry Potter books. I believe it is where Harry discovers the true powers of Lord Voldemort or as he is more commonly known as, he who must not be named.

    My favorite character from this book is Ginny Weasley. Having grown up with six elder brothers she really knows the meaning of happiness, but as the year goes on Harry will discover that Ginny is hiding something, but what could it possibly be?

    My favorite part of the book is when Ron and his two elder twin brothers Fred and George break him out of the captivity of his horrid aunt and uncle.

    I encourage anyone to read this book but only after they have read the first book in the series, Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone.

    Again one of my favourite all time books! In this book my favourite character is Harry, due to his bravery and curiosity throughout the book. My favourite part is when Harry knows how to open the door with the snake type design on it, it think that was such a brave moment of his and I know that I would not have had the courage to do that. It was like he was not even scared and I thought that was really cool. My other favourite scene is when Harry writes in the diary and the diary writes back to him, I found it the most intriguing part in the novel, and that part was the part that got me hooked on the book! I was totally upset when I finished this book, but then I was happy because I found out that there was another book for me to enjoy.

    Just like JK Rowling’s first novel, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is just as entertaining and exciting. It’s Harry, Ron and Hermione’s second year at Hogwarts, and again they find themselves solving mysteries, having fun, learning about magic and trying to discover the secrets of a myth about a hidden chamber at Hogwarts. The book is full of laughs and tears, and you won’t be able to stop reading! My favourite part of the book is when Dobby, a small house elf Harry befriends at the start of the book, is freed from his horrid master Lucius Malfoy. It is a touching scene and shows how compassionate and kind Harry truly is. It is also the scene where everything becomes clear, where our questions as readers are answered. I love this book and couldn’t put it down! I would recommend this book to everyone, because it is so exciting, engrossing and seems so real!

    As I have stated in another Harry Potter novel review, I love this series. J.K. Rowling writes with wit and much detail. The characters are so loveable and relatable (even Professor Snape and Peeves the Poltergeist). Anybody who is a fan of fantasy novels and defeating the evil, you should read this novel, and the one before, and the entire series. Twice.

  48. I love this Harry Potter book!! Every time I read it, I find it incredibly creative, and amazing how someone can come up with all the ideas. I love the general idea of the heir of Slytherin returning, and the basilisk petrifying people. Even small details like the mandrake juice to return people to their original state, is a brilliant idea. After all the other books came out, it’s really interesting how the diary is a horcrux. However we don’t actually find this out until ‘The Half Blood Prince’. I find it amazing how the whole series had been planned, and the contents of each book, and then all the different ideas lead in to each other.
    I love Hermione in this book. She is so smart, and unlike many of the other students, really values her education and loves to push herself by reading many of the libraries books. Without Hermione, the mystery of the Chamber would be a mystery. She is highly logical and sees things others don’t.
    I rate this book 9.8/10 and I believe anyone over the age of 10 would love this book.

    This is my all time favourite Harry Potter book. It is very interesting and it makes me squirm when the spiders come. This is the first time we meet Dobby (I think) and I love him he is a heart warming character. If you haven’t read any of the books yet you should really get onto them because they are amazing. Harry Potter is a wizard that goes to Hogwarts school of magic. The Harry Potter series is a terrific one and I give it a 10/10

    I have never read the books but I would love to, but the movie OMG its so good. Although my brothers have watched it 50 times and I think i even know almost all the words now its still a good movie. Finally the other day my brother said “I’m sick of that movie now” and I jumped for joy when I found out he wasn’t going to watch it anymore, because that was all he ever watched. My favourite character is Hermione because she is smart and sometimes even funny. I also like Dobby because he is ute and friendly and tries to save Harry’s life I love how Harry, Ron and Hermione have such a strong friendship and nothing can tear them apart. I recommend this for 9+ because there are some scenes that could scare some kids like the spiders. I rate this movie a 10 out of 10! If you haven’t seen this movie you haven’t lived so go and watch the amazing Harry Potter!!!

    Harry Potter and the Chamber of secrets is amazing. In this book, there is the unraveling of many secrets, whether it is about Voldemort, or Harry himself. There is a chamber discovered, where you have to have a special tongue to open it. It is hidden in a bathroom. Harry works it out and just in the nick of time he saves someone. Harry has to investigate and figure it out with his two partners, Ron and Hermione. Without the help of teachers or anyone other than his partners harry discovers a diary. A diary owned by someone, very important. This book is good and bad. It helps harry, but it gets him into trouble too.
    I love this book and rate it 10/10. I recommend it for 10+ because the writing can be hard to understand for any younger. 🙂

    Join Harry, Ron and Hermione for another dangerous, fun, and exhilarating school year at Hogwarts ! The Chamber Of Secrets has been opened, and although many students have only heard rumours of what exactly it is, the teachers appear more frightened than anyone. According to legend the chamber of secrets was created by the founder of Slytherin house, and inside he hid a monster, a terrible monster. This monster was supposedly there to kill all muggle (non magic) blood students. Of course Harry Ron and Hermione are always in the wrong place at the wrong time, but start to work out where the chamber is really hidden, and what they can do to save the muggle born students of Hogwarts.
    This book is amazing, and if you’ve read the first one you’ll have to read this one as well !

    Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is the second book in the Harry Potter series by J.K Rowling. This story is about a monster controlled by the ‘heir of Slytherin’ that lives in the chamber of secrets. In the Chamber of Secrets, Harry and his two best friends, Ron and Hermione, must find out what the monster is before the headmaster closes the school down. On their mission, they find a special diary and soon find out that there is more than meets the eye. In this adventurous story, the types of animals and creatures includes, Fangs (Hagrid’s dog), snakes, gigantic spiders, monsters and even a phoenix. My favourite character in this Harry Potter book is Gildory Lochart because he never fails to entertain me and make me laugh.

    Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is the second book in the magical series by J.K Rowling. The story is about a deadly monster controlled by Voldemort that lives in the chamber of secrets. Harry, Ron and Hermione save Ginny from being possessed by Voldemort. The book introduces us to Harry being able to speak Parseltongue (being able to talk to snakes). There are giant spiders, snakes mandrakes (mandrakes cure petrified people) that contribute to the thrilling adventures in this novel.

    I think this story is one of my favourite books out of the whole series. It is so mysterious and you find out so much about Voldemort and his life as a student at Hogwarts before he crossed to the dark side. When I read this book I felt I got to learn more about the characters.

    Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is the second of the 7 series novel’s of Harry Potter. It is a pretty good book, but it would not be one of my favourite book in the series. However this book is still a good . I like at the end of the book when Harry is in the chamber of secrets and also when Harry and Ron are in the flying blue car and they make there way to hogwarts. My favourite character in this book would be Dobby! He is so cute and small. But my least favourite characters in the book would be Gilderoy Lockhart because everyone thinks he is amazing but he is not, Tom Riddle because he dose terrible things to people and lucius because he is mean and he dose some bad things too. I do not like when Harry and Ron are in the forest because I do not like big hairy spiders. This book is still very good and I would recommend this book ages 10 and up. I would rate it an 8 out of ten. It is still a good book but for me some bits in the book got a little bit boring and also not all of the book was interesting for me .

  58. This is my favourite book out of the harry potter series, it is such a fun and exciting read that grabs your attention. I love the part in the book near the end where harry discovers where the chamber of secrets is and fights the basilisk. My favourite character is ginny because she is so innocent through the whole movie and I sorta feel sorry for her how she had to go through so much in her first year at school. I recommend the book to anybody who likes to read books with adventure, mysteries and excitement. I could not put the book down but my least favourite part was when Harry and Ron ventured into the forest, because I really do not like spiders. But overall it is one of my favourite book ever and I rate it a 10/10 🙂

  59. Before reading the Harry Potter series, I really resented the books, I guess I thought J.K Rowling’s series were some what ridiculous.
    Although in reality The Harry Potter series is probably the best bunch of books I have ever read, being filled with adventure, fantasy, excitement, horror, Drama, Comedy the list could go on… but what really struck about the chamber of secrets is how the author put so much passion and detail into her books. I Simply love J.K Rowling’s creativity, the fact that she created so many different spells and creatures is pure genius. There is so many fantastic parts of this book that is so hard to choose a favourite, but I have to say the part where Tom Riddle takes Harry 50 years in the past to discover who the culprit of the book, was simply magical! There are some areas that slightly frightened me, Like the part were Harry, Ron and Fang(Fang is Hagrid’s dog) were taken hostage by a bunch of gigantic spiders. I also would never have thought that Harry could speak Parseltongue (He can speak to snakes).
    I would recommend this to people who are 9+. This is because this book is for is for Advanced readers, there are also some scenes which could frighten younger readers.
    Over all I would rate this book a solid 8/10, frankly I rate this because there were some parts of the book which bored me and one of the characters Gilderoy Lockhart annoyed me beyond compare. but other than that Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets is a fantastic book

    A MESSAGE TO ALL PEOPLE WHO DISLIKE HARRY POTTER BOOKS:
    For all those people who dislike Harry Potter books or for all people who can never imagine themselves reading the Harry Potter series:

  60. I love Harry Potter an the Chamber of Secrets because it has got such an interesting story line with Harry finding the secret chamber to try to save Ginny! I love how J.K Rowling thinks of spells and enchantments to make the book more interesting and to follow along The Philosephers Stoone. My favourite part of the book is when Harry, Ron and Hermiony are on the way to the chamber and have to pass obstacles. I think that the movie could defiantly used more detail from the book, especially the obstacles they face to get to the chamber. I would recommend this book to10 and up because after the first few book the series can be a little hard to follow. I would r3ad the firriest book first though!

    The second book of the infamous Harry Potter series had a lot of hype to live up to, and it certainly surpassed itself. This book focuses on Harry, Ron and Hermione’s adventures in their second year at Hogwarts, starting with a magical flying car and ending with a giant, deadly snake (and of course many more in between). When reading this book, the first thing I noticed was that it seemed to be darker than the first, and I certainly believe that, and also that the other books become considerably darker after this one too. But, that is not really a bad thing, I just found that it pulls you even more into the series, and you begin to relate to the characters and have real feelings for them. I would recommend this book again to everyone, as I loved it and everyone I know who has read it loved it too. This magical, mysterious book is one for everyone.

  65. I loved Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets because it is a mystery and you don’t want to put the book down cause you want to work it out. My favourite part of the book was when Professor Lochart tries to do a memory charm on Harry and Ron and it backfires and he loses his memory because it is really funny and I just couldn’t stop laughing. I also like the part when Harry realises Tom Riddle is Lord Voldemort because you feel really shocked and want to read and see what happens next. My favourite character is Ginny Weasley because she is always really shy around harry and it’s really cute. My least favourite part of the book is when they encounter the spiders because it was really scary and I am also scared of spiders so I was like sitting in bed gripping the book really tightly cause I felt like I was there and I had to keep reminding myself it wasn’t happening to me. I would definitely recommend it to others if you like a bit of magic and mystery entwined together.

    Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets, is the second book of the series, Harry Potter, and is just as good as all the others!! It’s Harry’s 2nd year at Hogwarts with a bit of a twist, the Chamber Of Secrets has been opened. I loved the movie and book because it is just like any other Harry Potter book I have loved watching and reading. My favourite part in the book/movie was when Harry was fighting the Basilisk in the Chamber Of Secrets, but was also very dangerous for him, and Ginny as well. My favourite characters are Harry because he is strong, thoughtful, smart, talented and possesses the quality of courage, Ron because he is so funny when he is scared of everything, very brave in the Forbidden Forest with Harry and all the spiders and Aragog, and of course Hermione because she is super, smart, deep in thought and absolutely incredible! Sadly, I can’t really relate to any of the characters other than Hermione because I think we are both very smart, and we think the same. (LOL!!) My least favourite part in the book and movie was when Hermione was petrified, when Harry was battling the Basilisk and when he destroyed Tom Riddle’s Diary aka, a horcrux with the Basilisk’s fang, because it was one of them moments when your thinking, what’s going to happen and are they going to die? Well there are 2 ways to find out, read the book, watch the movie or do both. If I were J.K Rowling, I wouldn’t want or have to change anything in the book, because I like it just the way it is, the way I read it. I would recommend this book/ movie to any person, because I am positive that they will love Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets movie and/or book, and the rest of the series as well. I think any type of person would love this book/movie, especially people who are into magic, and the make-believe stories. So, my advice would be, watch the movie, read the book, even do both because no matter what, everyone, including you, will and should love Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets, and of course the rest of the book and movie series!!

I read it first when I was nine, so I recommend it for 9 years and up. This is an amazing novel with a great mystery to it and if you want to read the other books, you have to read this one to understand it. 5/5 stars! 😀

  86. hi,
    i am reviewing a classic favourite of mine, Harry Potter and the Chamber of secrets by JK Rowling. THe story kicks off by Harry desperate to return to Hogwarts, shcool, his friends and quiddich. However a surprise guest arrives in the form of a house elf named Dobby who warns harry not to return to hogwarts. He leaves Harry with a parting warning and an cream cake smeared on a guest of the dursleys. He is rescued from his cousins by a his best mate Ron and a flying car. Harry is going to Hogwarts! However it isnt that simple, the platform 9 and 3/4’s is blocked so their trip to Hogwarts isnt by train but by flying car. This is only the start of a dramatic year for Harry who discovers a new ability to converse with snakes and when mysterious attacks on students are happening on muggleborns Harry encounters his dark enemy Lord Voldemort once again. . .
    I would recommend anyone who enjoys adventure and fantasy to read this book and the entire Harry Potter series because although it may seem a bit “young” for highschool students i find this book is great for people of all ages
