5.0 out of 5 stars J K Rowling never fails to deliver, 13 Feb 2012
By 
This review is from: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Book 2): Celebratory Edition (Mass Market Paperback)
The first book in the greatest literary saga ever written was entertaining and exciting but maybe a little too under developed in terms of setting and character, in this second installment Rowling manages to up the action, danger and adventure and also deliver a more satisfying plot and develop her characters further.
Harry returns to Hogwarts for his second year in training to become a wizard and finds that things are once again strange at Hogwarts. There are voices in the walls that only he can hear, students are being petrified (frozen) and there is another defence against the dark arts teacher who is admittedly less of a danger than Quirell but infinitely more irritating (Rowling is first class at writing vivid, real characters). The story is thicker and more engrossing and the wizarding world is becoming more believable by the page.
Overall this book is awesome and a worthy second advenure for Harry, it also reveals some clues that are seemingly insignificant for new readers, but foreshadow and lead to larger plot details in subsequent books.
