Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets – Review

Perpetually Past Due

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

Published in 1998

Pages: 341

Genre: Fantasy, magical realism

“Not for the first time, an argument had broken out over breakfast at number four Privet Drive.”

While Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is a good follow-up to the first Harry Potter book, it fails to pack the same intensity as its predecessor. There isn’t much that is earth shattering as far as the plot goes and it often falls victim to familiar tropes from the first novel; however, there is some further character development and we are able to delve deeper into the connection between Harry and Voldemort.

  1. Among the Harry Potter books this may actually be my favorite. I liked the mystery, the lurking threat that somehow kept appearing and attacking, and I liked the fact that this time the heroes were on the defensive. It felt like a natural progression from the first book, where the villain was “trying to get setup”. This time the opposition was setup and successfully causing trouble.
