The Dursley's simply don't hold with such nonsense. Here are some of my favourites: 1. Sharakhai, the great city of the desert, center of commerce and culture, has been ruled from time immemorial by twelve kings -- cruel, ruthless, powerful, and immortal.
And most important, this book series makes reading fun! This is just a review of the published script book. I'm not sure that there could be three better and closer friends that Harry, Ron, and Hermione. The Harry Potter epic Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, p. This may just be an opinion from an adult reader, but all the same I still await the next instalment-is there a university for wizards!

Review This was my second reading of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, and while I normally allow more time to pass between re-reads of favorite books, it was still a fun story. Harry's mercifulness to Dobby was very touching too.
It is very rare when I cannot quite figure out the why of things. More enjoyable is the Albus-Scorpius double act, in which shared father issues jostle with banter. Despite the finality of Deathly Hallows, the idea of any sort of continuation was an exciting one. A mysterious visitor rescues him from his relatives and takes him to his new home, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It was as spectacular a finale as I could have asked for, with every loose end tied up, and J.

When I have free time, I always go to see a new film. The characters though children were never treated as extraordinary, magic was normal. From that point on, Harry's life is never the same again. We promised the movie after we finished the book and I must say that I am a bit nervous. If there were hints that he was the true culprit and not Snape, I obviously missed them. When Harry is called upon to be a contestant in the competition, no one is more surprised than he, and it seems certain that his name was put forth by someone wishing him harm. Rowling should be commended for getting so many people reading and excited by books.
