In one of the most hotly anticipated sequel in memory, J.K. Rowling takes up where she left off with Harry's second year at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Old friends and new torments abound, including a spirit named Moaning Myrtle who haunts the girls' bathroom, an outrageously conceited professor, Gilderoy Lockheart, and a mysterious force that turns Hogwarts students to stone.

      The second instalment of boy wizard Harry Potter's adventures at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, based on the novel by JK Rowling. A mysterious elf tells Harry to expect trouble during his second year at Hogwarts, but nothing can prepare him for trees that fight back, flying cars, spiders that talk and deadly warnings written in blood on the walls of the school. Didn't really like it because of the spiders.

            This book brought a lot of excitement to me. Harry Potter has been a legend, for not being killed by You - know - who. Now his time has come to save Hogwarts. I give this book a 5/5 because it is interesting, and it will make you excited!

              There are mysterious things happening at Hogwarts. It started when an elf appeared in Harry Potter's room, telling him he must not go back to Hogwarts because of a reason he was not able to say. Now, unexplainable things are happening. Harry finds a diary belonging to someone named Tom Riddle. Overall, I thought this book was very interesting and I recommend it to anyone who enjoyed the other Harry Potter books. I rate this 5/5.

                The second book in the Harry Potter series follows the path of young Harry Potter as he learns more about the wizarding world and his role in it. He discovers new secrets at Hogwarts, makes friends and enemies, and meets the bumbling, new Defense Against the Dark Arts professor, Gilderoy Lockheart. This book is so amazing, and if you loved the first one, you will love this one more!

                  Harry finds, in this book, that he isn't getting any letters from his friends. That is, until he meets the elf, Dobby, who has taken all of the letters from his friends, and is hoping to prevent Harry to going to Hogwarts saying that it is too dangerous from him. He even has him grounded by his parents to achieve this task. Eventually when Harry does get to school, he finds that many people are getting petrified. It is up to Harry to stop the person who is doing this to save his school.

                      The sequel to the bestselling book "Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone" perfectly captures the magic, even surpasses that of, the first. In "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets," Harry meets the eccentric house-elf Dobby. Vulnerable as he seems, Dobby seems infinitely determined to stop Harry from going to Hogwarts, even dropping a cream cake and framing it as Harry's fault to make the Dursleys ground him. But Harry Potter has never known a haven quite like Hogwarts. So when Ron Weasley comes to his rescue, Harry is gleeful, until he meets up with the enraged Mrs. Weasley. After an eventful stay at the Burrow, Harry is off to the magical school Hogwarts, where all seems well until students begin to become Petrified. As the plot thickens and the stakes grow higher, Harry may learn things about himself he never intended to know.
