Do you believe in magic? Well if you do this is the book for you. In this book you will have a chance to experience what it is like to attend “Hogwarts” with Harry Potter. Harry has many adventurers with Ron and Hermione.They have to figure out a 50 year old deadly mystery.The story ends with Harry battling a giant serpent in the depths of the awesome and terrible Chamber of Secrets.

Interesting fact-Harry finds out that he can speak “parseltongue” (he can speak to snakes) and that’s not a good thing….you’ll have to read the book to find out why.

I love reading the Harry Potter series of books. Every book goes deeper into the lives of Harry and his friends. I am most like Harry Potter, because I like to solve mysteries and help people. My favorite part was when Harry and Ron go into the girls’ bathroom where a girl has died and find the Chamber of Secrets! It was so cool how the Chamber of Secrets was in the bathroom. I definately didn't expect that.

I think kids from age 8 -88 who love magic and suspense will love to read this book. I love this book because it has so much action and it kept me guessing. I plan to read all of the Harry Potter books. I think you should too!
