Top Customer Reviews
I expected it to take some time before I could buy the books. However, a very nice person posted on the price drops forum that not only was a couple collection available now, but was being offered at a ridiculously low price. I quickly one-clicked and did my happy dance.
I love having all of the books in one collection, and as others have noted, it has easy navigation and all of the illustrations are included; there were no shortcuts taken with this set. The set is no longer fifteen dollars, but my review is based on content and not price. The sale price was just a serendipitous occurrence, but even at full price, the collection is good value for money.
I can see people being disappointed and upset because they missed the sale, but that is no reason to give the books a bad review. The regular price is not out of line with what books by other popular authors cost. Besides, thousands of books have price drops every day, some lasting only a couple of hours. I have several ways in which I track book prices, but still, I have missed sales on books I wanted; it is no one's fault.
This book covers Harry Potter's second year at Hogwarts. There is an evil that threatens the students, the same as it did 50 years ago. Harry and his friends dig for clues, putting the pieces together one by one, searching for the answer that will solve the mystery and protect their fellow students. As always, the author presents readers with interesting characters and situations. Her style of writing captivates both young and old, as she is able to present the story from the viewpoint of a twelve-year-old boy yet describe everything in a manner to keep an adult interested.
The beauty of this series is that over the years, there will constantly be new readers discovering the wonders of Harry Potter and his years at Hogwarts. Five stars for year two.
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.
