Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter Signature Edition)

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets  - J.K. Rowling You can read this review and more reviews (and other bookish things) at Wensend.com.After reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone I got really excited to reread the second book in the series. In my mind this was one of the less great books in the series, which is why I initially rated it 4 stars on Goodreads. But I confess: this book was much more fun to read again than I expected, so I turned my initial 4 stars into a 5-star rating. What surprised me after rereading two of the first books of the series again, was the way Rowling used language to create the story. After having participated in a HP roleplaying game for a few years, I seemed to have forgotten a lot about her writing style. I thought it was much less.. childish. More than once I found myself thinking: Is Harry that big of a fool? He is so naïve and doesn’t seem to notice any danger. I sometimes wanted to yell at him: “Why won’t you just think? This is dangerous!” But maybe that’s just my inner adult speaking. ;) I really enjoyed reading this book. Compared to the first book in the series, I think this story is more coherent as a whole and all of the events fit together more logically, whereas the first book was just an introduction to the world of wizardry.
