Magical Things from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets I Wish Were Real:
Flying Ford Anglias
Seriously, who couldn’t use a flying car every once in a while? I love love to have one of these. That invisibility button would also be awesome since then people wouldn’t even know where I was when I was flying across the country. This would also probably be cheaper than flying commercially. Okay, someone needs to make this a thing.
So Dobby is a bit crazy but house elves could be extremely useful. Every bookworm could benefit from the services of one of these. They could clean up after us, make us food, and even bring us chocolate. I would be all for having a house elf, though I would treat my house elf better than Dobby was treated.
Magical Things from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets I Am Eternally Happy Are NOT Real:
Aragog and Family
Anything that is ready to eat Ron, Harry, and Fang needs to not exist. Also, a spider the size of a small elephant sounds terrifying. I am glad these exist only in the world of dear Harry Potter. Though, now that I think of it, this would be a very good reason to avoid the Forbidden Forest forever.
The Monster in the Chamber of Secrets
Since I don’t want to spoil this for anyone who hasn’t read the book/seen the movie (do you even exist?), I will refrain from naming the monster. However, this monster needs to never exist in the world that I live in. I have no desire to know that something this creepy could truly roam unseen around a gigantic, medieval castle. If these exist, kindly refrain from telling me so.
Tom Riddle’s Diary
So, a creepy blank diary that writes back to you? No thank you. I full heartedly agree with Mr. Weasley that you should never trust anything if you can’t tell where is keeps its brain. Yep, this diary definitely falls into that category of things that shouldn’t be trusted, ever. Also, after reading the later books and knowing what the diary really was, I am so grateful that it does not exist in my world.
I have to say that this could, potentially, be handy sometimes. However, at most times, this would be terrible. Imagine never knowing exactly who you are talking to or spending time with. Especially in light of the fourth book, this potion is a terrible idea, at least in my opinion. I prefer to deal with people honestly and so this type of a potion does not sit well with me.
This review fist appeared at Orandi et Legendi ([...]).
It was lots of fun reading this book and having it in Latin was a special treat indeed. The translation is great and reading it I felt that the book was written in Latin. The translator, Peter Needham, has done a pukka job at rendering modern language into an ancient tongue, and words such as car (autocinetum) or elevator (anabathrum) seem to come natural. This just goes to show that far from being a dead language Latin has been in use continuously from Roman times right up to the present. New words have been added to Latin just like English gets new words for new things and even though the number of Latin speakers today is much lower than in the past it is still a living language that continues to be used. I wish the rest of the Harry Potter series could be translated as well. It's so much more fun than reading De Bello Gallico, for example, and would a lot more encouraging for students to learn Latin and indeed make learning Latin more fun.
Other great and exciting books are Insula Thesauraria (Latin Edition),Pericla Navarchi Magonis (Latin Edition),Mysterium Arcae Boulé: The Boulé Cabinet Mystery (Latin Edition),Rebilii Crusonis Annalium (Latin Edition), but especially Fabulae Divales: Fairy Tales in Latin (Latin Edition) is great if you like magic and fairy tales.
