The books best asset is the stuff with Lord Voldermort and Tom Riddle, the finale in the Chamber of Secrets is far better than the rest of the book; which seems to exist largely of ridiculous filler moments, like an incident with a cat hair and some polyjuice potion, rather than slowly gathering information throughout the story to build to a climax.
Read the first one and if it's entertaining don't worry about amazement yet read the second one.
Awards and Distinctions Go back to the Harry Potter main page. The main characters tend to exhibit admirable traits such as loyalty, courage, friendship, and a general willingness to help others. The book is compelling enough, like its predecessors, to force you to not put it down. Click on the book jacket above to go directly to the CCBC review and other information for each title.
I could not endorse a series with cheesy, slow, over-the-top, sordid, grammatically incorrect, wordy, choppy, incoherent, nonsensical, or any other writing style that distracted from the story. Those people are absolute idiots.
In Book VI, the most stunning example is the Horcrux. This one is one of my most anticipated fantasy reads of Release Date: Join the site and send us your review!
And it will amaze you. August 9, Nevernight In a land where three suns almost never set, a fledgling killer joins a school of assassins, seeking vengeance against the powers who destroyed her family Harry and Dumbledore set off to find one of them and while they are away death eaters storm Hogwarts.
It also has mentions of many dead characters — Dumbledore, Cedric Diggory, Lord Voldemort, James and Lily Potter — and all of them have something to contribute in their own unique ways. In many places it seems a bit obvious and ham-fisted, Rowling seems to have opted for stereotypes rather than originality in these monsters and it makes it all a little contrived.
Rowling has managed her complex plot over the course of six volumes with few falters even as she makes each book a compelling story on its own. Where in the first book everything is new the second book builds on the already established understanding and really sets up the rest of series. However, Harry is not as normal as the rest of his family, and from September until June he lives in a huge hidden castle somewhere in England called Hogwarts.
The second book in the JK Rowling series about a young, orphan wizard named Harry Potter begins shortly after his twelfth birthday at the end of July. Actually, Luke Scull can, who has with his Grim Company books proven himself to be at the forefront of the Grim Dark fantasy movement.
And yes, you could also argue that the villain is a bit too simple on the morality side of things. The Harry Potter series one of the best series in decades. And, as with all the Potter books, it has a fantastic main character base, which make the whole read bearable and even enjoyable, ridiculous over-the-top incidents with flying cars and falling pudding can even be forgiven thanks to the humour of Ron Weasley and the irate madness of Vernon Dursely; not to mention it being the first time we meet the wonderful house elf, Dobby.
Use this to teach about plot sequence. This book is just While I love the 2nd book, it's not everyone's favorite, so if you like it enough, read the 3rd which is many people's favorite. Every family should enjoy them both. And even the ones you don't relate to become real people as you watch them grow up, mature, and find their places in life.
However, when it comes down to it The Chamber of Secrets is most definitely the weakest of all the Potter books, the story line is predictable and the newly introduced characters are pretty stereotypical and just add to the aforementioned predictability.
September 22, Sequel to the highly popular and one of my personal favorite's YA fantasy book's last year which was a cross between Lies of Locke Lamora and Ocean's Eleven. People can connect with him because they are familiar with his experiences and trials.And the woman can't seem to write a bad book.
