The amazing sequel to J.K. Rowling's Sorceror's Stone is just as well written as it's companion. Hands down the best series I've ever read.

Not my favorite of the series, so still one of the greatest books ever.

The full-colour deluxe edition illustrated by Jim Kay is absolutely gorgeous. The illustrations are vivid and stunning. The paper is glossy and thick. The book is just magnificent, with a built-in ribbon bookmark as a lovely added touch. I've loved Harry Potter for many years, but the deluxe illustrated versions are a dream come true. Anyone who loves Potter should experience these wonderful editions. And for anyone who is new to Harry Potter, you are in a for a treat because the stories are truly fantastic.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of secrets is the second instalment in the Harry Potter series. If you enjoyed the adventure of the first novel, I would highly recommend continuing the journey and reading the second. This time Harry, Ron, and Hermione, are starting their second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. After coming face to face with Voldemort at the end of his first year, one might have thought Harry was done with the dark wizard, but no. This time, Harry will need all the help he can get from his friends to save his classmates and his school from danger. He will not only have to travel into the past, but into parts of Hogwarts that most witches and wizards would not dare to enter. Just like the first novel, this is a good read for people of any age. The detailed descriptions will bring you right into the story with Harry, Ron, and Hermione. You will feel as if you are right there with the trio discovering all the magical hidden secrets of Hogwarts. I would rate this book four out of five stars.

Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets is a great book that it very well written. It is filled with mystery and you never know what will happen. The book will lead you to think that it is one character but then it will be a totally different person. So I think that it is overall a great book. I watched the movie and read the book and in my opinion the book is much better. The book has so much more detail and the movies leaves out some things that the book has.

A good series full of magic, magic and a ton of more magic! Definite series for people of all ages. As Harry potter is finding out who he really is the chamber of secrets is opened, him and his friends discover, that its not for the first time. They must work together using their individual strengths to close the chamber of secrets and stop whoever opened it.

After a curious encounter with a house elf named Dobby, and being nearly expelled for flying Mr. Weasley's car to Hogwarts, Harry thinks he'll have a quiet break from everything at last. Soon, trouble starts again, thereby dashing all hopes for a normal-or as normal as Hogwarts could get-school year. People aren't sure who the culprit is; all they know is that he or she is a direct heir of Salazar Slytherin, pureblood loving founder of Hogwarts. Could it possibly be Draco Malfoy, a muggle-born hating enemy of Harry's? Maybe it's Hagrid, whose mysterious past is finally revealed? Harry, determined to find the culprit, is dismayed when he realizes who everyone really suspects....himself!

Frightening or Intense Scenes: It is a little bit more intense than the first book so if you are younger you might want to wait a bit before reading it.
