Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling-341 pages
I enjoyed reading this one as much as the first one, The Sorcerer's Stone. I am really enjoying this series now, as I never read it as a kid. Harry, Ron, and Hermione have many more adventures in this one and there are many twists and turns just as in the first novel. It seems as though there may be a bit of foreshadowing of things to come later in the series contained in this book. As in The Sorcerer's Stone, Harry faces off with a form of Lord Voldemort, this time Voldemort as a fifth-year at Hogwarts named Tom Marvolo Riddle (who later becomes Voldemort), which seems like it could be important for later. Harry also has to kill a Basilisk, which is a giant serpent. Overall, this was an intriguing, page-turning read and I can't wait to continue reading this series.
