Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

J. K. Rowling
The Dursleys were so mean that hideous that summer that all Harry Potter wanted was to get back to the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. But just as he's packing his bags, Harry receives a warning from a strange, impish creature named Dobby who says that if Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts, disaster will strike.And strike it does. For in Harry's second year at Hogwarts, fresh torments and horrors arise, including an outrageously stuck-up new professor, Gilderoy Lockheart, a spirit named Moaning Myrtle who haunts the girls' bathroom, and the unwanted attentions of Ron Weasley's younger sister, Ginny.But each of these seem minor annoyances when the real trouble begins, and someone--or something--starts turning Hogwarts students to stone. Could it be Draco Malfoy, a more poisonous rival than ever? Could it possibly be Hagrid, whose mysterious past is finally told? Or could it be the one everyone at Hogwarts most suspects...Harry Potter himself?

On to book two! While rereading the books I've been listening to the podcast Harry Potter and the Sacred Text, which has helped me find even more interesting details about the story and chapters. Thanks Vanessa & Casper!

the best but not quite the best. 5/7.

I really enjoyed this book. It was a little scarier and a little more dangerous than the first book, and I liked learning a bit more about Voldemort's past.
