Warning, this review has spoilers for this book and the entire series.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is the second in the amazing Harry Potter series but it is not one of my favourites in the series. This book is still a kids book and feels innocent with it being more morally black and white than subsequent novels. Plus I never get how wizards can manage normal life without learning basic stuff like maths and science.
In this book, during the conversation between Harry and Dumbledore, it has a massive spoiler about the ending of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows, particularly if you have read the Half-Blood Prince. This and all the books in this series have so many layers where at first it seems a simple story but also a story of good vs evil and the strength of love.
The trio of friends has not really changed since the first book, but Harry is a bit snappier as he has got people believing he is attacking students. I like how Hogwarts feels like another character and changes in each book. I also like Dobby as he is loveable and Lockhart who makes me smile especially with the valentines Dwarves.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is an amazing book full of mystery and danger and I would recommend it to fans of the first book.
