If you have never before heard of Harry Potter, let me be the first to say, "Welcome to Earth, dear alien friend!" The second book of the series. The movies do not do justice to the books. The English sense of humor is just fantastic. I bought this for me, not my kids, by the way. They have their own copy!

The eagerly anticipated sequel to the astounding smash hit Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is finally here! No need to wait Harry's back for his second year at Hogwarts, where the infamous Chamber of Secrets has been opened for the first time in 50 years. The monster that is unleashed is literally petrifying Hogwarts students (turning them into stone, that is), and who is the primary suspect? Harry Potter himself. Add to this some enormous spiders, a Deathday Party, a ghost named Moaning Myrtle who haunts the girls' bathroom, and lots and lots of suspense, and you'll soon find yourself engrossed in another terrific tale in which magic does exist and good eventually triumphs over evil

Unabridged Read by Jim Dale. Excellent voices. I really enjoyed hearing the story as told by Mr Dale even after already reading it.

I enjoyed listening to Jim Daly read this book. He's very good at distinguishing voices for the various characters. The story itself isn't one of my favorites of the Harry Potter series, but it's a pleasant listen (I just don't recommend listening to some parts while eating)

A little scarier than the first Harry Potter book. These books just get better and better. Harry is packing for his second year at Hogwarts when an elf named Dobby finds him and warns him that if he returns to Hogwarts he'll be in trouble!!

These books are just so creative and entertaining! This book was so fun and easy to read, you really get immersed in the world!
Harry Potter is back at Hogwarts for his second year. After arriving at the school in a flying car and almost getting expelled for performing magic outside of school he begins the school year. There is a new Professor for the Defense of the Dark Arts class and a new Slytherin Seeker (Hint: It is someone Harry and the rest are NOT fond of at all). Not long after he arrives, a message is painted on a wall: "The Chamber of Secrets Has Been Opened..." Harry, Ron and Hermione go through a variety of antics to figure out what the Chamber of Secrets IS and why this message has the professors and students so scared. I really enjoyed the parts of this book that were not in the movie, such as Nearly Headless Nick's "Deathday Party" and several parts involving Percy Weasley.
I am so very glad I finally decided to pick up this book series (I feel like I'm the only one in the world who has not read it yet!)

The CoS was my least favorite in the HP series. I thought Prof. Lockhart's character and involvement took up too much time and overshadowed the rest of the story. The only thing I enjoyed about this book was the intro of Dobby, the house elf, though I would have liked for Rowling to include him in more of the book than he was. Overall, it isn't a boring story and fits in nicely with the flow of the series. I just didn't particularly care for Lockhart and thought Rowling gave too much to that character.

I love the HP books and this one is no exception. What can I say, humor, mystery, fun for all ages.
