Harry potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Harry Potter and the Chamber of secrets book review –

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is about the main character, Harry potter and his time at Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Throughout this book many challenges come Harry’s way accompanied by his close friends Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley. He faces challenges such as a tree that fights back, teachers who are out to get him, flying cars and messages written in blood on the school walls.

Harry Potter and the chamber of secrets is in the high fantasy genre as the book has witch’s, wizards, magic and is set in a different place that only true wizards can go to. I think Harry potter and the chamber of secrets does not have a specific target audience.  Other than above 8 because of its violence and gore scenes are full on for younger kids.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is a classic Good vs evil plot.  It starts off as just a rivalry between two young boys but as the story grows Harry must face much bigger challenges one of which fighting the one who cannot be named: Voldemort. Through his journey Harry is the underdog Harry is not a pure blood and is ridiculed for it. His Muggle parents don’t even want him to be at Hogwarts but defying all odds Harry rises and defeats Voldemort.

I personally think that Harry Potter is a great book when you start reading it you can’t put it down, it is full of action and always keeps you guessing. In the book Harry Potter, you can never guess what is going to happen next. It is suitable for all audiences from 8 to 108. I think people would want to read Harry Potter because it is a book with lots of action, fun and mischief. I personally would rate it 4 out of 5 stars.
