Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling

Cover imageHave you ever wished that you had a special power? Perhaps, invisibility, being able to fly from place to place or even read minds? Well that’s no problem for a young wizard named Harry Potter who can do anything with a flick or tap of hiss wand. The book I’ve chosen is Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling. Harry goes to a school under the title Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. This is Harry’s second year in Hogwarts and this year’s no walk in the park. Someone or something is petrifying every poor soul in its path (not to mention a teacher’s cat). If someone can’t find who ever or what ever is doing this, Hogwarts will be shut down…FOREVER! Loving the school more than anything, Harry feels it’s up to him to do so. With the help of his two faithful friends Ron, and Hermoine. This book’s genre (which is my definite favorite) is fantasy.

 I honestly enjoyed this book because of the suspense, action, and mystery that constantly keeps the reader’s nose in the book and at the edge of their seat. I highly recommend this book to those who like fantasy and/or science fiction, as well as a challenge. I don’t recommend this book to people who enjoy realistic fiction or biographies because this book is far from real. Once again, this is my book recommendation for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
