What happened?” Whispered Madam Pomfrey to Dumbledore, leaning over the statue on the bed. “A second attack,” said Dumbledore […] “What does that mean Albus?” Asked Professor McGonagall anxiously. “It means,” said Dumbledore, “that the Chamber of Secrets is actually open again.”
Quarrel broke out again at breakfast in Privet Drive number 4.
Only a year ago Harry learned that he was a wizard, a very famous one at that. A lot of time has passed since that day, a lot has happened. Harry not only had to compete against the dark lord who gave him his scar years ago, Harry has also had a lot of other things. So it is no wonder that he is looking forward to his second year of school with joy. He’s looking forward to Hogwarts, his best friends Ron and Hermione, and of course his new favorite sport: Quidditch. Simply: Harry is looking forward to a normal, nice year, but like in the previous school year, he has some exciting and dangerous adventures ahead of him. So he is haunted by an annoying house elf, has to fight a very personal enemy in Quidditch and again face a gruesome danger. Stephen Fry – Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Audiobook .
Because someone is up to mischief in the castle aisles, someone has licked blood, someone wants to kill. But who is it?
Idea / implementation:
It was only a few weeks ago that I met Harry, Ron and Hermione. I roamed Diagon Alley with them, discovered Hogwarts, put on the speaking hat, learned to fly on the broom, and much more. Since I left the last page of “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” behind me on this terrific adventure, I haven’t had a quiet minute. I just had to know what to do next! So I started reading. “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets”, like its predecessor, has the power to enchant and inspire. The idea behind the pages of this work convinces with uniqueness, excitement and wit. Joanne K. Rowling has written a wonderful sequel, once again lined up great ideas and once again made you want more. I even liked this part a touch better than the first volume, because it is a little darker, but also a lot funnier than its predecessor. This creates a unique atmosphere in which one is only too happy to sink – grandiose!
Ms. Rowling was able to convince me even in the first volume, because it was already clear there: This woman has an incredible imagination. In “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets”, too, the author lets her readers participate again in that fantasy and thus builds an incredible story out of letters. However, it is only really clear in this volume that Joanne K. Rowling also has a great sense of humor. Although she has already indicated this in “The Philosopher’s Stone”, it is precisely in this sequel that she can convince a little more. So your plot is always exciting or funny and the reader never gets bored. The perfect mix to lure those reading noses and keep them reading.
This work has a very special, new character: Gilderoy Lockhart. Gilderoy Lockhart is the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher and thoroughly convinced of himself. He is a swarm of women, tells of several adventures that he wants to have experienced and leaves no opportunity to present himself properly and to be the center of attention. This man really does not reap any reader sympathy, but definitely gives the plot the necessary finishing touch. Since Mr. Lockhart is so overwhelmed by himself, but the truth is that he is quite a fool, there are some things in the scenes with him that make the reader laugh. I really liked the introduction of his character. In addition to Gilderoy Lockhart, Ginny Weasley is finally getting a face. In the first Harry Potter volume, she was only a small supporting character, also in “The Chamber of Secrets”, she does not play a major role, but you finally get to know her.
Of course, the usual, well-known characters appear, some of them have evolved, some you get more, sometimes less to read. Overall, I can say that I really liked the characters in the second volume – the good guys and the bad guys.
Cover / interior design:
I really like the cover of the second volume. I like the representation of the Chamber of Secrets very much and I also find the color scheme appropriate. Still, I’m a total fan of the English editions. I don’t really know why, but I’ve always liked them a little bit better.
The interior design corresponds to that of the first volume. Headings introduce the individual chapters.
It is imperative that readers get hold of these ingredients in Diagon Alley before they can start Hogwarts’ second year of school: a lot of imagination, a lot of courage for adventure and a good dose of humor. Only when these materials are available can “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” be fully enchanted. Joanne K. Rowling has once again given everything: All her joke, all her imagination, all her wealth of ideas and thus once again created a book world in which you can immediately feel at home. Now I’m probably infected too. Infected with the Harry Potter virus. That Harry Potter virus, which will probably not be defeated if I should have read the last volume. Harry Potter will be a part of me from now on and I am looking forward to the third volume in the series!
