Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is a fictional novel by British author J.K. Rowling and is the second novel in the Harry Potter series.
He can be a grandfather analysis you to sleep or a Peter! Fry completely toenails the scenes in between Harry and Sirius in Azkaban. But inevitably, I think Dale takes much more risks with greater reward. Fry has the human minutes down, but Dale wins the magical and also funny minutes, which are exactly what I enjoy most around Harry Potter.
I believe Jim Dale does a fantastic cartoonish, larger-than-life, wonderful globe. Harry Potter Audiobooks Online Free. Similar To Chris Columbus was a fantastic director for the initial two films, since he brought this bright, enchanting globe to life.
Yet picture if Chris Columbus had actually needed to go on and also direct, say, The Half-Blood Prince, where points are extremely dark as well as really complex and also no longer tiny wizards addressing magical enigmas.
Apart: I think Stephen Fry as well as his certain globe of film was somewhere in the mix when J. Rowling was composing the books.
Rachel: Oooh, excellent catch with Blackadder. Do you think Rowling would have been viewing Blackadder during the exact same period she was writing? I have not actually seen the episodes, so you win that point by default.
It needed to have actually slipped in there someplace. The actually small ones, like Stan and Ernie on the Knight Bus, are, to my mind, both hilarious as well as quite their very own individuals, when Stephen does it.
His Hermione is a little as well overpowering as well as his Harry is a little as well stupid. Whereas Fry takes care of the very same scene with attractive inflammation and humanity.

Generally, I just intend to provide Jim Dale a huge hug each time something actually scary or mysterious takes place Patronus! His voice does this enchanting sparkly shivery thing. Search for:. His character continues to amaze me and his friendship with Ron and Hermione is goals! I have to read the next books ASAP! Reading with a few other Potter heads at Buddies Books and Baubles.
Let the magic commence. Me: Harry Potter Reread! Haven't you read them already and watched all the movies. Me: Yes They are magical like that and I want to jump back into that whole world again.
Me: That doesn't mean anything. Well it does, it means that I now have time to over-analyze the whole thing and catch little things I missed the first few times. That is the best thing about rereading the HP books. Hubs: I don't understand The book is always better than the movie.
Hubs: Inconceivable. Me: There 'that' is how we ended up together. Still it is amazing to me to reread these with a group of people and relive all the little things I'd forgotten along the way. I love growing up with Harry, Hermione and Ron all over again and going through all those trying times that solidify them as a great trio of friends.
Chamber of Secrets is so well done and I absolutely loved having the why would they ever hire Lockheart as a professor. I now know definitively why according to JKR but we had some fun ideas too. For a children's book I can't stress how well thought out all these are and the magical feeling I get when reading one.
I love Snape I love Ron and I love these books and damn I wish I didn't know alot of spoilers even though I haven't watched the movies. I spent the whole month so far of August trying to play catch up. And now that I have sort of done that- I left this one review till the end Thaaaaaaaaaaang would want for me is to feel pressure- I do OH, I really do. I feel the pressure to put out the best review that I can possibly think of right now The series that got her through the hard times in her life.
Books she thinks of as family. I'm not worthy. But I am going to try Gryffindor - Passionate about their beliefs, and standing up for what they believe in. First to defend their friends. They prefer to deal with a situation directly, even if it means a fight - and they want that fight to be a fair one. Ravenclaw - Defined by curiosity and the love of learning- first and foremost.
A Ravenclaw will always seek knowledge. They want to know the why of everything. They love learning, and will want to seek as much knowledge as possible. Hufflepuff - Ultimately, Hufflepuffs are interested in helping both people and animals- much less confrontational or daring than the other houses. They are also the least likely to care about individual achievement or House points- more apt to to focus on their relationships to others rather than things they personally have done.
Slytherin - Slytherins are seeking individual greatness, and the dark and mysterious appeals to them greatly, even if it seems dangerous. Theyll go for experiences that other houses are too afraid to touch. Which house are you?
Harry has spent another horrible summer dealing with the Dursleys So in the dead of night- they arrive at Hogwarts- ready for what the year ahead awaits them As usual I will not give too much away Why perhaps one of the greatest sequels ever written? Then why is it the lowest rated of the 7? Why do so many consider it to be their least favorite? I don't know! I thought it was flipping amazing. Because Jo Rowling, so very English and erudite, with her topsy turvy hilarious and creepy narrative, her human characters and her timeless topics; Jo, who knows the human heart like Hermione knows the works of Gilderoy Lockhart, hides the motives of every character till the perfect moment of revelation.
Even those that should be above suspicion are not with the taint of pride and ambition, and even the most beloved characters breathe with the fragility of humanity as the story relentlessly runs along through the darkened halls of Hogwarts. Beware, second-year students, the desire to be great is a double-edged sword beset with rubies. I first became a fan of Jo with Cuckoo's Calling and it occurred to me, breathlessly reading through Chamber of Secrets, that the Riddle was solved.
Why is Jo Rowling so good? It's simple. She's a mystery writer. Harry Potter soars above Muggle mystery books because of its special additives. Magic, yes, and undeniably malleable lenient fantasy elements that Jo masterfully weaves and waves her wand over to manipulate and beef up the story as she sees fit, but truly, how many mysteries have we read collectively where we set them down and forget who the detective was, or the suspect, or whatever.
Why is that? Because of Jo's reverse engineering no doubt an ancient Slytherin technique where the character comes first. No matter what, and no matter which character. The books are entirely character driven and because we love The Boy Who Lived and He Who Shall Not Be Named and The Weasleys and Rubeus Hagrid and Ginny the cutest human being on planet earth and on and on and on, we find ourselves shoulder to shoulder with our would-be sleuths and puzzle solvers and their "we must we must" attitude.
Chamber of Secrets was an outstanding mystery, chock-full of red herrings, an incredible combative climax, and too many laugh-out-loud lines to count. Dear Diary, I have a new favorite book. Oh really, what is it? I am a Sirius fan of Gary Oldman That said, I had no idea that Chamber of Secrets would be so outstanding and leave me thinking the incredible Philosopher's Stone was a perfectly-pitched welcome handshake compared to the books to come.
For those who like to feel up a book for flaws, I have none, and I see none. I see the sheer verve of adventure and the scintillating luster of mystery, gleaming hungry-eyed and ready for more.
You see, as Philosopher's Stone was about love, Chamber of Secrets was about fearlessness. Fearlessness to speak the truth in the face of a lie, fearlessness to stand up for what's inside your heart. Fearlessness to take a leap of faith and follow the path of destiny. Also, I am very interested in how the issues gain maturity as Harry and the other characters age.
Obviously there are deaths to come, but in the case of Chamber of Secrets versus Philosopher's Stone, I could feel that sense of maturity creeping in just a bit, and am so very excited for the continuation of the series I'll have to go download some more chocolate frogs now as everything in the Wizarding World becomes increasingly dangerous and unhinged and wild and wondrously unforgettable.
Recommended for everyone. And 50 points for Hermione for being epic even whilst being petrified. Espero engancharme como vosotrxs a la saga en el tercero PD: Estoy intentando leerlos todos antes de navidad y hacer un vdeo jejeje flag 70 likes Like see review Mar 26, Inge rated it it was amazing review of another edition Shelves: laugh-out-loud-funny, faeries-fae-and-elves, main-character-is-cool, magic, smiles-a-plenty, villain-rocks-my-socks, put-a-sock-in-it, children, fantasy The Harry Potter series is like one giant puzzle, and during every book, tiny puzzle pieces start fitting together and forming a whole.
There are hints everywhere about what's going to happen, sort of like inside jokes for people who've already read the books, but the mystery remains.
Rowling keeps you guessing up until the final pages. I love how every character brings something else to the table. Ron's dry comments, Fred and George's pranks, Hermione's cleverness, Dumbledore's charming strangeness. Even side characters like Mr and Mrs Weasley have such a strong individuality.
They're all fleshed out. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is an exciting, thrilling read. It makes you think along with the Golden Trio and laugh out loud. It makes you cheer characters on and boo others. You're engaged for the entire story and there's no way out.
You can't escape. Hogwarts is your home. When I asked one of my friends why he felt it was the worst of the bunch, he gave me a very reasonable reply. He'd come in late on the Potter game, having only read them last year in fact, when a Professor of his was walking them through what it takes to be a good mystery-- using Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone as an example of a perfectly fashioned mystery.
Moving on to the second book, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, my friend let's call him Rex found that this book wasn't up to standard mystery-wise in the way the first book had been, which is what he'd been expecting. Maybe it's because I first read it as a child, or it's maybe because I was more interested in the fantasy aspect, but I never really cared, nor do I care now that it doesn't follow the same standard mystery guidelines.
Rex was the only person who gave me an answer other than "I don't know, I just don't like it as much," so therefore his is the only one that I'm able to analyze. But enough negativity, allow me to explain what I do like about it. Um, Ron's broken wand? Well, if I'm being honest, any single scene including Mr. Ron Weasley is bound to make me smile and any interaction between him and Hermione yes, even this early on is bound to make me squee!!!!!!!!!!
Notice how quick he is to jump to Hermione's defense; notice how distraught he is over Hermione's being petrified. Oh, how I love them. To add a few more- Harry's first trip to the Burrow! The flying car!
Fred and George marching ahead of Harry, announcing him mockingly as the Heir of Slytherin! The singing Valentine's Day Dwarves! And our introduction to the Whomping Willow! Come on people, this is classic stuff! I also love the part Ginny Weasley plays in this book; not so much the whole "helping the Heir of Slytherin thing," but her mad crush on Harry. Ah, how I remember the days of pining for them, of whining over their lack of return interest, of cursing my blasted gapped teeth and frizzy hair.
Of course, unlike Ginny I was never able to woo any of them in the end, even after my braces! I even enjoy ol' Lockhart, for what he's worth. Yeah, he's obnoxious, but that's the point, right? And yeah, the degree to whch he is obnoxious is a little cartoony and unrealistic, but let's not forget- this is a children's book, after all. Chamber of Secrets also sees Harry destroying his first Horcrux, and offers us our first insight into one Tom Riddle.
I would never discount this book, or cast it so carelessly aside as least favorite of the bunch I don't believe in ranking these books, by the way. Anyway, it receives a full five stars from me with zero hesitation. I appreciate it's contribution to the Potter world and will look forward to reading it again when the time comes She had never read it and I just simply cant accept that.
Because lets face it:. Well, she inevitably, jumped on the bandwagon with the rest of the world. I was so thrilled that she not only finally read it but that she loved it.
It took her a whole year to get around to the next book, but she did and thats all that matters. Shes already given this one 5 stars! Im one excited Potthead! Chamber of Secrets catches some heat from fans for being too much like the first one. But, I assure you its really not that similar. Sure, theres our favorite trio once again keeping secrets from adults who could totally use that information. Sure, theres something sinister going on in the school causing everyones feathers to be ruffled.
Sure, theres a Professor who isnt exactly who he says he is. But, this story is different. And damn it, it is FUN. I cant tell you, now, how many times I have reread this series.
What I can tell you is that every single time this one gets funnier and funnier. There was more than one occasion where my giggling fits caused the bed to shake leading to Jerrids disgruntled complaints.
