“When in doubt, go to the library.” ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

So, these triplet of heroes or nosy kids have become amazingly famous for their adventures, and we all know that. The stories always go around Harry’s need to save the day. Is it because of his fame? Or just because he is slightly pushed towards those dangers?

I liked this story a lot. I was at some point cursing because I think it is impossible to find out that the monster in the chamber was a basilisk… It makes sense after all because it is a snake… and only Harry could hear it… but with the Hagrid’s roosters killed and the petrification… like… really? There was no way to know that the monster was a basilisk. I just did some quick “research” about this mythological beast, and yes, some is true, but it is either way too hidden to find out that it was a basilisk or I am just not too informed on this topic…

Anyway… the introduction to the duels and the magic battles excited me so much! Snape’s expelliarmus and rictusempra… simple but the daily bread for Potter. The whole existence of Lockhart was just annoying and entertaining at the same time. Not the most hated character of all times but still pretty annoying.

Compared to the movie, even if it is not exactly the same, the movie adds a lot of elements that make it still attractive. The sounds and the whole charms images are great! The actors selected are just magnificent. Alan Rickman and Maggie Smith were just incredible selections, and even though the movie removed some of the parts of the book, so far it had not make much of a difference to capture the essence of the story. The ghost party, the ghost history professor, Hagrid’s complains of the killing of his chicken, the Dudleys, and more are not quite necessary to keep the plot alive.

There is still a long way for me to go. 5 incredible books that will built up the whole experience and the whole excitement, obsession, and worship to Harry Potter. Not that I am not doing it right now… but I think as the books become thicker, I will let myself bathe on the craziness of this amazing work.
