harry potter and the chamber of secrets book


It’s been another long
summer at the Dursley’s for
Harry Potter. He can’t wait to
get back to Hogwarts and is
counting down the days until
he can return. He ’s
surprised when, on his
birthday, a strange creature
named Dobby shows up with
dire warnings for Harry: He
must not return to Hogwarts!
When Harry flat out refuses
to stay home Dobby lands
him in heaps of trouble with
the Dursley ’s, who lock
Harry up in his room and
refuse to let him out. Before
Harry can sink too far into
despair, however, Ron and
his two brothers come to his
rescue in a flying car and
spirit him back to Ron’s
house, where Harry is
thrilled to spend the
remainder of the summer.
Thus starts an eventful
second year for Harry.
Between having to cope with
more homework than ever, a
Defense Against the Dark
Arts professor who is vain
and convinced Harry is too,
and a mysterious voice he
keeps hearing in the walls,
Harry ’s days are nothing if
not interesting.
As the school year
progresses, however, the
mysterious voice Harry
keeps hearing is getting
more and more menacing,
and soon vicious attacks
start happening on the
students of Hogwarts. When
Harry discovers, quite by
accident, that he is a
Parslemouth and can speak
to snakes, he ’s quickly
singled out as Slytherin’s
Heir, the person who,
according to legend, is
opening the mysterious
“ Chamber of Secrets” and
letting out the monster.
Of course Harry has no idea
who is attacking the
students, but he quickly
resolves to find out who is
responsible. He, Ron, and
Hermione come up with an
elaborate plan to disguise
themselves as Slytherin
students so they can
question Draco Malfoy, whom
they believe IS the one
setting the monster loose in
the school. The plan goes
perfectly, but they ’re
disappointed when they find
out from Draco that he is not
the one they ’re looking for.
The quest gets personal
when Hermione is attacked
and Petrified by the monster.
Ron and Harry are
devastated, and are left on
their own to uncover the
true identity of the person
responsible. Events come to
a head when Ron ’s sister,
Ginny, is kidnapped and
taken down into the
Chamber, and they discover
an important clue that
Hermione left for them. They
quickly head down into the
Chamber of Secrets to
rescue Ginny.
Harry and Ron get separated
once they ’re down there and
Harry is left to pursue the
monster on his own. He
quickly finds Ginny, and
thanks to some mysterious
help from Dumbledore and his
phoenix Harry is able to
destroy Slytherin’s Heir,
whom he’s amazed to find
out is a younger version of
Lord Voldemort. Voldemort
was possessing Ginny
through an enchanted diary
and was using her to set the
monster loose on the
Harry and Ron are both
hailed as hero ’s when they
make it back out with Ginny,
and Harry can ’t imagine a
finer end to such an eventful
year when Hermione and the
rest of the victims are
healed and they win
Gryffindor loads of House
