Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

10 02 2011

He missed Hogwarts so much it was like having a constant stomachache.  He missed the castle, with its secret passageways and ghosts, his classes (though perhaps not Snape, the Potions master), the mail arriving by owl, eating banquets in the Great Hall, sleeping in his four-poster bed in the tower dormitory, visiting the gamekeeper, Hagrid, in his cabin next to the Forbidden Forest in the grounds, and, especially, Quidditch, the most popular sport in the wizarding world (six tall goal posts, four flying balls, and fourteen players on broomsticks).

He never felt so lonely.  More than anything else at Hogwarts, more even than playing Quidditch, Harry missed his best friends, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.  They, however, didn’t seem to be missing him at all.

This is the only thing that I, sort of, don’t like about the Harry Potter series these days, they make me miss my friends so much 😦 (miss you friends!) 😦 because every book, the whole story is just full of friendship.

Well anyways, there are also some “firsts” in this book.  This is where Harry first met Dobby, the house-elf, who eventually became his friend 😦 too.  Harry’s first flying car ride.  This is where Harry, Ron, and Hermione first learned about the Chamber of Secrets (mind you, I was really afraid of this chamber when I first read this book).  This is where they’ve attended Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington’s Death Day party (when will I attend a death day party?).  Where they’ve found out Filch is a Squib (opposite of muggle) and where we’ve all learned what a Mudblood is (foul term for muggle-born).

“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are , far more than our abilities.” – Albus Dumbledore
