This is my favorite book becuase at the bigining, when they fly the flying car when they miss there tran becuase the portal of 9/34 was closed. Also the book was really interesting and I always wanted to continue reading. I found it surprising the Ginny was the "Bad Guy" in the book and then at the end the book made alot more sense.

The book Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets was an excellent book to read. It was great because it was very unsuspecting because you never new whet was going happen next. I would probably rate it a 9 out of 10, if you are into fantasy books. This book is about a boy named Harry Potter, you can probaby guess that from the title, who is a wizard. He goes to Hogwarts School of Witch Craft and Wizardy. In his second year, a mystirious chamber called the Chamber of Secrets is opened. Harry and his best friends Ron Weasly and Hermine Granger, try to solve the mystery of the chamber and save all the Muggle Borns, people whos perents arn't wizards or witches, from a terrable fate.

Have any of you read the book Harry Potter and the chamber of secrets? Well if you haven't I recommend you should read it. This book is great for those of you that are 8 and any ages above because it can have some terrifying parts but there is also love and humour in the book to. But if you are under 8, this is probably not the book for because you might be looking for a easier and shorter book to read.

This book has lots of problems and small stories involved in the pages. To give you an idea of the book I will read you a summery. Harry Potters summer had included the worst birthday in the history of birthdays. But there is some unusual news from Dobby a house elf and a exciting visit from his friend Ron that comes and rescues him in a flying car! In Hogwarts for Harry's second year,
Harry starts to hear noises and voices coming through the walls and then bang! The attacks start. Students are found turned into stone and even Ron and Harry's best friend Hermione was one.

I enjoyed this book because of all of the sensations you get wile reading the book. One page your feeling shivers and in the next page your feeling like it was the funniest sentence you have ever read. When you watch the movie it has lots of things going on, but in the book it adds more detail to make the story more intriguing and make the readers end the book in suspense.

My favourite part of the book is when Harry and Ron find out that Hermione has been turned into stone. I love this part because there is lots of emotions going on in the readers mind and Ron and Harry's mind. You don't know what Harry and Ron are going to do.

From this book I learnt that if I am ever writing a book I should always think about how I can make the story better. I can see that J.K Rowling has done lots of editing to make her book the best story it can be. So the next time I write a story I will always think about that. Thank you.

Another outstanding venture for Rowling. Just as exciting and intriguing as the first.
