My review of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter #2)
by J.K. Rowling.

When Harry is with the Dursley’s you can’t help but feel sorry for him because of being treated so unfairly by his Muggle Family.

Dobby the house-elf tries to persuade Harry not to go back to Hogwarts because he’s terrified of the evil plans against Harry. The elf’s intentions are good, but Harry ends up in a load of grief not just from the Dursley’s but from Hogwarts too. The school doesn’t start off on the right foot for Harry and Ron when they miss the train. Dobby had sealed the barrier leading to platform 9 3/4, so they decide to take Mr. Weasley’s flying car and crash into a Whomping Willow. They were in major trouble.

It was a diary that belonged to Tom Riddle. (A Horcrux!) She was unaware that he was controlling her and it almost kills her and other students at Hogwarts including Harry, but Harry and Ron were triumphant as they found the clues leading them to save her.

  1. Love the book cover you have posted here! I adore Dobby even though in this first book he is quite the pest!

      I disagree! The gnomes are more of a pest than Dobby imo, but I understand why you’d say that. He was only trying to save Harry’s life however unfair it was. I think you’d agree that house elves make good servants and the thing with Dobby is he wasn’t very loyal to his master. Why didn’t j.K Rowling make Harry his new master? Harry could’ve , would’ve, should’ve kept Dobby as his own at Hogwarts;( I think maybe that is where Dobby goes anyway if I’m not mistaken.) Even children deserve to have an elf, right? Maybe if Dobby were treated better he would do better. Anyway being a kind wizard like Harry, setting Dobby free was the start of something new, as we all know from reading the books.

    (Just adding to your and Sheila’s discussion) I think this is something Rowling pulled off extremely well. In terms of his actions in this book, Dobby was kind of a pest, but you totally love him anyway, which makes it possible to bring him into later books. That’s REALLY hard to do, but Rowling pulls it off masterfully. I love your cover too! 😀 Great post! Here’s mine!


  3. As I finished the book I loved how the diary was worked into the story. I want one of those to use for good! Great cover!


  4. I love this year… especially Tom Riddle in the diary,
    I have the new and updated box set as well, and I absolutely love this version of Chamber of Secrets
