Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets,

It is Harry's second year in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. This time he gets away from the Dursleys. But before he does he finds a house elf in his bedroom called Dobby and it says Harry potter must not go to hogwarts this year. But harry says hogwarts is basically my home. But in this story harry flys in a car,gets crushed into a tree , nearly gets killed by giant spiders, Hermione turns in to a cat and Ron gets his wand broken by the whomping willow and all this before harry has to take on Tom Riddle and his pet basilisk.

I had watched the movie before i read the book, but the book is so much better than the film. This is because J K Rowling puts more detail in her writing. Now i am reading the seventh book witch is very good .

  1. Even though I am one of the very few people in the whole wide world who is not a Harry Potter fan, your write up Seth, has given me the incentive to try again - I must be missing out somewhere. And like so many books which have been made into films, which are a huge box office success full of fun and excitement, reading the book yourself opens up another dimension to the story, allowing you to put your own imagination into play rather than that of a famous film director.
    Hope you are OK Seth and settling down well to your life back in England.
