For the next seven weeks, I will be reviewing the Harry Potter series! I am so excited to review these classics of our time. If you have not yet read them, I highly encourage you to jump into this beloved series of friendship, adventure, and (of course) magic.
Harry Potter is preparing to enter his second year at Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. But before the term begins, he is approached by Dobby, a strange little house-elf, warning him not to go back to Hogwarts because it is no longer safe. Though he returns to the school, Harry soon sees that Dobby was right – danger has returned to Hogwarts.
Muggle students are being mysteriously petrified left and right, and no one knows who the culprit is. However, Harry learns in the midst of these events that he can speak Parseltongue – the language of snakes – which makes him a prime suspect as Slytherin, a known muggle hater, was also a Parselmouth.
After yet another incident, a creepy message is left on the walls, informing the school that the chamber of secrets has been opened. Harry begins to realize who is really behind the attacks, and must enter the dreaded chamber of secrets to confront an unexpected enemy.
