But each of these seem minor annoyances when the real trouble begins, and someone--or something--starts turning Hogwarts students to human statues. Could it be Draco Malfoy, a more poisonous rival than ever? Could it possibly be Hagrid, whose mysterious past is finally told? Or could it be the one everyone at Hogwarts most suspects...Harry Potter himself?
The second book of the Harry Potter series has always been one of my favourite, I've always loved the basilisk, hiding down in the basement of a school. The whole diary and riddle mystery always puts me on the edge of my seat, and I just have to keep reading, even through the last quarter of the AFL grand final (which my team did win!!! Don't worry, I finished it before the winning goal!).
I love the characters in this book. The author has all her characters fit certain roles, and it all works perfectly. With the three main characters, the rival and even the enemy, this book has it all. They are all perfect, and so is the rest of the book, and you will be hooked on the first page of the book, this is a must read.
And this book contains my favourite sentence:
"The Chamber of Secrets has been opened,
Enemies of the heir, beware"
