Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

The 2nd book in the Harry Potter series is about Harry and

strange happenings going on in Hogwarts. Soon after Harry and his

friends arrive after Hogwarts, a message is written on a wall in blood

that says "enemies of the heir, beware, the chamber has been opened."

Harry is found near the sight so people suspect he was the one who dun

it. Throughout this book, Harry, Hermione, and Ron are constantly

looking for the chamber of secrets, and who might have opened it. They

have many frightening and exciting adventures along the way, but

everything changes as students start to get petrified. Near the end,

Hermione gets petrified and it's up to Ron and Harry to save their

friends and fellow students.

While I was reading this book many questions came to my mind. I

wondered why Harry didn't tell anyone about him hearing the voices in

the wall. Even though it could have been a bad sign, if he had told

Dumbledore, the teachers at Hogwarts might have been able to solve the

mystery and stop Tom Riddle sooner. I think if I were Ron I would

convinced Harry to tell Dumbledore about the voices. I also would have

stayed away from where all of the writing on the wall was going on.

While I was reading this book I never would have though that it was

Ginny Weasly that opened the Chamber of Secrets. I also never would

have thought that the reason Hagrid got expelled from Hogwarts was

because Tom Riddle accused him of opening the chamber. I think this is

a great book because of how everything in the end ties to each other

to make an awesome ending.

JK Rowling writes in a very unique style. From the very beginning of

the book you can tell the book is going to be full of adventure, close

calls, and mystery.

Imagery is used a lot in the Harry Potter books because JK Rowling

gives the reader a very unique and intense idea of how Hogwarts looks,

and what happens in Harry's adventures. While reading this book the

reader can almost picture the "enchanted ceilings" and the "lacy

snowflake cookies."

There isn't very much figurative language in this book. Most of the

figurative language occurs in the first book when JK Rowling explains

more in detail what Hogwarts looks like. This book, however, does have

some figurative language. Personification like "the tree yawned" and

"the car burped out the suitcases" give the reader a much more vivid

picture of what is happening in the story because they can relate it
