Another five starrer that dares to be darker than its predecessor,
This review is from: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Book 2) (Paperback)
Having read the Philosophers Stone, this was a worthy sequel. Deliberately moulded for a slightly older audience i just couldn't put it down even at the age of 34. S This book is far darker than the first and sets a darker trend as the series progresses. Gone is the young carefree Harry who knows nothing about the wizardry and Voldemort and the new Harry is here to stay. Harry is still as brave and modest as he was in the first book but we can now see a side of him that is rebellious and destructive as well. I feel this adds to the book and makes harry seem more human and a more likeable hero.
The delights of Fred and George are even more thrilling in this book and the little you do hear of them is very entertaining. Ginny is also a very pleasing character and her relationship with all her brothers was very amusing. Watch out for Dobby, he comes out more useful than he really thinks he is.
Another Page turner
