Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J. K. Rowling
J. K. Rowling is a woman with a tremendous imagination. If you are a teen or tween or perhaps even child (though the imagination of a certain age may not take well to the story) you will enjoy this story of the young age set. It is the classic theme of good versus evil. Love against hate. It is by no mistake that this series has garnered the attention that it has. Most would agree that these stories are well laid out and presented. Some say Rowling's writing has improved with each successive novel she produced. I wouldn't deny that. It would further stand to reason that this novel is early in the adventure and early in development of her writing style. I would insist that this is still a terrific read. If by any chance you are on the fence regarding reading this series, get off the fence and start reading. I'm willing to wager you won't be disappointed. This story occurs in the second year of Harry's education at the wizarding school of Hogwarts. It tells the tail of Harry and his two friends', Ron Weasly and Hermione Granger, mishaps and adventures as they learn to wield magic. They do so in order to guard against evil in general and Lord Voldemort in particular who makes his attempts to regain power and more importantly a physical manifestation. All of Harry's acquaintances make further appearance in the novel and their stories are expounded upon. Oh, please note that these novels are not only for the young but are equally enjoyable to the adult mindset as well.
