“Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” by J. K. Rowling [English Review]
I’m back with another totally-English review and today we get back Rowling’s magic world ⚡️
Harry Potter’s summer has included the worst birthday ever, doomy warnings from a house-elf called Dobby, and rescue from the Dursleys by his friend Ron Weasley in a magical flying car! Back at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for his second year, Harry hears strange whispers echo through empty corridors – and then the attacks start. Students are found as though turned to stone… Dobby’s sinister predictions seem to be coming true.
After getting back to the Dursley for his summer vacation, Harry finds himself alone and maybe forgotten by his friends Ron and Hermione. He thinks that they have cut every tie with him because they don’t really like him, but what Harry doesn’t know is that, behind his friends’ disappearance, there is Dobby’s work, a house-elf who tries to keep Harry away from going back at Hogwarts for his second school year. Thanks to a flying Muggles’ car and to the Weasleys, Harry’s school year starts without too many incidents, even if Voldemort is around Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, ready to take Harry’s life once again.
There is a plot, Harry Potter. A plot to make most terrible things happen at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry this year.
I simply can’t wait to read the next books, even if I already know the story and I’ve read them in their Italian edition. Unfortunately, I’ve had to stop buying new book, so Harry Potter and Prisoner of Azkaban must wait until I’ve read all the books I’ve collected on my shelf 😢
Next time we’ll talk about a Classic: Dracula by Bram Stoker!!
See you soon Federica 💋
