The full-colour deluxe edition illustrated by Jim Kay is absolutely gorgeous. The illustrations are vivid and stunning. The paper is glossy and thick. The book is just magnificent, with a built-in ribbon bookmark as a lovely added touch. I've loved Harry Potter for many years, but the deluxe illustrated versions are a dream come true. Anyone who loves Potter should experience these wonderful editions. And for anyone who is new to Harry Potter, you are in a for a treat because the stories are truly fantastic.

Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets is a great book that it very well written. It is filled with mystery and you never know what will happen. The book will lead you to think that it is one character but then it will be a totally different person. So I think that it is overall a great book. I watched the movie and read the book and in my opinion the book is much better. The book has so much more detail and the movies leaves out some things that the book has.

A good series full of magic, magic and a ton of more magic! Definite series for people of all ages. As Harry potter is finding out who he really is the chamber of secrets is opened, him and his friends discover, that its not for the first time. They must work together using their individual strengths to close the chamber of secrets and stop whoever opened it.

With a very fast paced-story, this second adventure of Harry Potter is one not to miss. Like the first edition to this series; Famous Harry Potter goes on another eventful, dangerous and magical adventure in another year at Hogwarts: School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. We follow Harry as he hears voices...That no one can hear...Faces dark cloaked villans...But who are they? And faces his greatest challenge yet again.

It's a must read!

Very fast read.

I love what I've read, it's amazing, because it's really magical and it's a book that I could learn things on, it improved my English, and it also my writing skill in Chinese. Another reason why I like the book are that I am a big potter fan! I like how J.K. Rowling wrote these books, it made everybody like it. In my opinion, Harry Potter are the best set of books!

Kwikspell is an all-new, fail-safe, quick result, easy-learn course. Hundreds of wizards and witches have benefited from the Kwikspell method.
Get the new Kwikspell kit for only $99.99.
Haha, this is one of my favourite parts!

I love the Harry Potter series, best book ever. I think I’d either be in Ravenclaw or Slytherin, but probably Ravenclaw.

Incredibly riveting, The Chamber of Secrets takes you on an amazing journey—and at the very end, leaves you hungering for more. Good thing there's five more books (and fat ones at that) left in the series ;)
I'd totally be a Ravenclaw if I went to Hogwarts.

After a curious encounter with a house elf named Dobby, and being nearly expelled for flying Mr. Weasley's car to Hogwarts, Harry thinks he'll have a quiet break from everything at last. Soon, trouble starts again, thereby dashing all hopes for a normal-or as normal as Hogwarts could get-school year. People aren't sure who the culprit is; all they know is that he or she is a direct heir of Salazar Slytherin, pureblood loving founder of Hogwarts. Could it possibly be Draco Malfoy, a muggle-born hating enemy of Harry's? Maybe it's Hagrid, whose mysterious past is finally revealed? Harry, determined to find the culprit, is dismayed when he realizes who everyone really suspects....himself!

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets begins as Harry spends a miserable summer with his only remaining family, the Dursleys. During a dinner party hosted by his uncle and aunt, Harry is visited by Dobby, a house-elf by name of Dobby. Dobby warns Harry not to return to Hogwarts, the magical school for wizards that Harry attended the previous year, explaining that terrible things will happen there. Harry politely disregards the warning, and Dobby wreaks havoc in the kitchen, infuriating the Dursleys. The Dursleys angrily imprison Harry in his room for a while. Harry is rescued by his friend Ron Weasley and his brothers Fred and George in a flying car, and spends the rest of the summer at the Weasley home.
