Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets The title of my book is Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. It is written by J. K. Rowling.
I really liked this book. This book is a fiction book. That of course means it's not true. Harry Potter is a twelve-year-old boy whose parents were killed by Voldemort. Harry has a scar shaped like a lighting bolt on his forehead.
He has black hair, like his father, and green eyes, like his mother. Ron Weasley is a red haired, freckled faced boy. Ron is Harry's best friend. He is very poor and has five older brothers and a younger sister. Hermione Granger is Harry and Ron's other friend. She has muggle parents.
She has bushy brown hair. She is the smartest witch in her class. Ginny Weasley is Ron's younger sister. She is in her first year at Hogwarts.
Draco Malfoy is Harry, Ron, and Hermione's worst enemy. He is from a pure blood family. Draco is in Slytherin's house. The time of the book is now. It takes place in London, England.
It also takes place at a school called Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Harry Potter is not a normal boy. He is a wizard in his second year at Hogwarts. Harry lives with his aunt, uncle, and cousin. Uncle Vernon was having a builder and his wife to dinner. Harry was going to have to act like he was not there, while the Masons were there.
When they got they the Dursley's, Harry went up to his room to find a house-elf on his bed. The elf's name was Dobby; he came to warn Harry not to go back to Hogwarts. Harry didn't care though; Dobby went down to the kitchen. He made a cake, Mrs. Dursley made, float and land on Mrs. Manson's head, and disappeared.
They thought Harry did it and they punished him. He was locked in his room and had bars put over his window. A few days later, late one night Harry heard something. A car was flying towards his window. It was Ron and his twin brothers, Fred and George. They pulled the bars off the window and loaded up Harry's stuff.
They went to the Weasley's house, the Burrow. Mrs. Weasley was mad at them for taking the car. They had to de-gnome the garden, at lunch they got their letters from school telling them what all the needed. They were going to travel by floor powder. Harry had never done this, so he let Ron go first.
Harry then threw the powder into the fireplace and yelled Diagon Alley. When Harry stopped spinning he opened his eyes. He was not in Diagon Alley, but Knock turn Alley. He was in an old store, Draco Malfoy and his father came in to sell so stuff. Harry hid just in time, so Draco couldn't see him. The Malfoy left, Harry got out of the store.
The half giant, Hagrid, helped Harry find the Weasley. They went to the bank, Gringo tts, for money to buy their books. Next, they went to Flourish and Blots, the bookstore, where Gilder oy Lockhart, a famous wizard, was signing books. They got their books and went back to the Burrow. A few days later, they all packed their stuff up and took the flying car to the station. Everyone was through, but Ron and Harry, they ran into it and hit hard, the barrier had closed, they waited for a few minutes and went to the car.
Ron decided to fly the car to school. They were landing when they mashed into a tree. The tree started punching the car. The car fell, threw them out and drove off. Ron's wand broke on the end. The next morning, Ron got a Howler from his mom.
The y went to Herb ology where they reported Mandrakes. Harry was going to Quidditch practice, after a few minutes the Slytherin team came to the field. They said they had to train their new Seeker, Draco Malfoy. Draco's father bought the whole team new Nimbus Two Thousand and Ones. Hermione got mad and told Draco what she thought of him. Then Draco called her a Mud blood, Ron tried to put a curse on him, but his wand backfired and he started burping up slugs.
They went down to Hagrid's hut, when Ron stopped burping slugs they went to the castle. Professor McGonagall told them, they would be going to do detentions later. At five Ron went to the trophy room and Harry went to Professor Lockhart's office. When detention was over, Harry heard a cold voice in the walls. When he got to the common room he told Ron and Hermione about the voice and went to bed. A day in October, Harry was stopped in the corridor by Nearly Headless Nick.
He asked Harry if he and his friends would like to come to his five hundredth death day party. On Halloween, they went down to the dungeons to the party, the music was horrible and the food was uneatable, so they stayed for a little while and left the dungeons. Then, Harry heard the cold voice again, he followed it, and there was no one around, but Ron and Hermione. Neither Ron nor Hermione could hear the voice, Harry ran up the stairs following the voice until he got to the end of the second corridor.
Water was all over the floor and a message was written on the wall with blood. Hanging by her tail was Mrs. Norris, the cat. Then Filch came and blamed Harry for his cat. Dumbledore came through the crowed and told Filch, Harry, Ron, and Hermione to follow him.
They went to Lockhart's office and looked at Mrs. Norris he finally said she was not dead but petrified. Dumbledore asked them why they were there and Ron told him they were on their way to the common room. Snape said they might have been in the wrong place at the wrong time. Dumbledore told them to go back to the common room. Hermione got Professor Binns to tell them about the Chamber of Secrets, the Chamber was opened fifty years before.
Hermione saw a line of spiders going outside, towards the forest. They went into Moaning Myrtle's bathroom Moaning Myrtle is a ghost. They left the bathroom and went to the common room. They think Malfoy is the Heir of Slytherin; they are going to make Poly juice Potion.
They started going to Myrtle's bathroom to make the potion so they wouldn't be interrupted. The next day Harry had a Quidditch game against Slytherin. The teams went down to the stadium and started playing. A Bludger was following him wherever he went. He caught the Snitch, but the Bludger hit his arm and broke it. Professor Lockhart did a spell on Harry's arm and made all his bones in his arm disappear.
Then they took him to the Hospital Wing, Madam Pomfrey had to be kept over night and re grow his bones. He woke up and Dobby was there, Dobby had made the Bludger do that. Dobby knew something about the Chamber, but was not telling him. Dobby disappeared again. Dumbledore and Madam Pomfrey were looking at a bed, on it was Colin Cree vey, and he had his camera in his hands. They opened the camera and it exploded.
Dumbledore said that the Chamber had been reopened. The next morning, Harry had grown all his bones back in his arm. A week later Professor Lockhart and Professor Snape starter a dueling club. Harry and Draco were the first examples. Draco threw a snake at Harry, the snake tried to strike Justin Finch-Fletch ley. Harry told the snake to stop, everyone looked at him in horror.
Ron grabbed him and pulled him up the stairs. He told Harry that he was a Parselmouth and so was the Heir of Slytherin. The next morning he went to go tell Justin what happened. Justin and his friends were talking about it, they said stuff that made Harry mad, and so he went back up to the common room. They were walking down the corridor when he ran into Hagrid.
Hagrid had a dead rooster in his hand. Harry was on the way back to the common room when he saw Justin lying on the floor and Nearly Headless Nick floating six inches off the floor. The door opened at the end of the corridor and Professor McGonagall came out. She took Harry to Dumbledore's office, Dumbledore told Harry he didn't think he did it and asked him if he had any questions.
Draco, Crabbe, and Goyle signed up to stay for Christmas break. On Christmas morning Hermione came in and told Ron and Harry the potion was ready. Harry and Ron knocked out Crabbe and Goyle and got some of their hairs and took them to the bathroom. They put the hairs in the potion and drank it. Harry turned into Goyle and Ron to Crabbe, Hermione wouldn't come out of the bathroom.
They left Hermione and went down to the dungeons they meet Draco on the way down and he let them into the common room. They asked him if he knew who the Heir of Slytherin was and he told them no. When an hour was up, they went back to the bathroom. Hermione came out and had a cathead.
She went to the Hospital Wing. A few days later they heard Myrtle crying, someone had thrown a book at her. It was a diary of T. M. Riddle, Ron told him he was awarded for a special service to the school fifty years ago. Harry opened the book and it was blank.
Once the Mandrakes are ready to cook all the hospitalized will be un petrified. Harry was in his room then he put ink on the diary and it vanished. The book was talking back to him. It took him fifty years back to when the Chamber was opened before. Hagrid was caught with a monster in the castle. Harry told Ron and Hermione about this.
A girl died in the bathroom fifty years ago. One day after Quidditch practice, Harry went to his room to find T. M. Riddle's diary was missing. The next day they start toward the Quidditch field and Harry heard the voice again. Hermione left and went to the library.
The game was about to start when Professor McGonagall came onto the field and called the game off. She told Ron and Harry to follow her. She took them to the Hospital Wing, there they saw Hermione, petrified, with a mirror in her hand. They went down to Hagrid's Hut to tell him, he has to stop the monster.
They got there and then a knock came to the door. Ron and Harry hid, they took Hagrid away and he said to follow the spiders. Harry and Ron did so. They were talking to a big spider named Aragog. Aragog told them Hagrid was set up, he did not open the Chamber. They wondered if the girl who died in the bathroom never left the bathroom.
They went to talk to Myrtle and she was the girl who died. They went to see Hermione and saw a paper in her fist it was the answer to the Chamber. Students were supposed to be in their House dormitories, Ron and Harry heard Ginny had been taken to the Chamber. Lockhart was going to go save her that night.
They went to Lockhart's office and he was packing all his stuff to leave. Ron made him go to the Chamber, when they got down to the Chamber, Lockhart tried to put a forgetting curse on them, but it backfired. Rocks fell between Harry and Ron and Lockhart. Harry followed the passage and ended up in a room and on the floor laid Ginny.
Tom Riddle was there, he happens to be Voldemort as a younger boy a Hogwarts. Tom called the basilisk and Dumbledore's phoenix cam carrying the sorting hat. The phoenix blinded the basilisk the sorting hat pulled out a sword out of it. Harry stabbed the basilisk in the mouth, but it bit him.
The phoenix cried on his wound and it healed. Harry took the fang and stabbed the diary and Tom Riddle blew up. The phoenix carried them all back up to Dumbledore's office. Harry got an award and the exams were canceled. Mr. Malfoy came to the school with his house-elf, Dobby.
Harry put his sock on the diary and gave it to him, he threw it to Dobby and Dobby was set free. Harry went back to the Dursley's and couldn't wait to go back to school. There really isn't a theme to this book at least not that I could find. It didn't really teach a lesson. I would defiantly recommend this book to anybody and everybody.
