Compared to my re-reading of “The Sorcerer’s Stone”, I liked “The Chamber of Secrets a lot”. Maybe because the characters have all be established or they are a year older, I’m not sure. I just found that they weren’t as irritating to me as they were in Book 1. The movie adaptation of “Chamber of Secrets” is my least favorite out of the bunch. I find that the battle in chamber is too dramatic and takes away from the idea the book is developing. As I arrived at this point in the book I realized that the fight between Harry and the basilisk only takes two paragraphs. I think downplaying the action keeps the reader focused on the main struggle between Harry and Voldemort. The entire book is about abilities versus choices, which Dumbledore makes clear in the end. This is an important lesson for all of us.
