Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is the second book of J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series. It’s also an excellent continuation for anyone who’s read the first book.
What the Chamber of Secrets is all About
A visit from a house elf certainly wasn’t the way Harry expected his summer vacation to go and being locked up in his bedroom wasn’t the best start either but being kidnapped by Ron and his family in a flying car was an interesting start and of course returning to Hogwarts made everything better. Harry is determined that he’s going to have a good year and no matter what the house elf says, everything is going to be completely normal, there will be no fighting dark lords this year. His only concern will be getting good grades but nothing is ever that simple.
Something is going on at Hogwarts, something strange and sinister. Muggle-born students are being found petrified, chickens are dead and Harry can speak the language of snakes. All these things together are adding up to some terrible conclusions in the minds of most of the student body though the staff seem to know differently and of course Harry is determined to prove everyone wrong. The fact that he can talk to snakes does not make him evil, after all it’s well known that Voldermort passed some of his power to Harry when he tried to kill him.
When the strange things continue to get worse and Harry discovers a diary left by a boy known as Tom Riddle he’s determined to get to the bottom of things. The diary allows him to communicate with the long-dead boy and even allows him to see what happened 50 years ago when the same terror swept through the castle. But visions of the past are not always truthful and when someone is taken into the chamber itself Harry doesn’t know who to trust or what to believe. All he knows is that someone he knows is in danger and he needs to save her.
Once again Harry will have to venture through the castle and he will have to face a far darker wizard than any wish to face. Not only that, he’ll have to defeat him alone and he’ll have to do it fast. If she dies in the chamber then she’ll never wake up and the darkest wizard ever to live will be strong yet again. Harry can’t allow either of those things to happen but what’s a boy to do when faced with someone far stronger and more powerful than he is? Well it’s going to take all of his wits …
