Harry Potter is a twelve year old boy with dark hair, that look as it has been in an explosion. He also has glasses and a scar on his forehead that looks like lightning. He was just a baby when he got the scar and his parents died, and ever since, he has lived with his uncle, aunt and their son Dudley.
A life with the Dursleys was a living hell for Harry until last year when he found out that he was a wizard. Harry is now in his second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. After spending a horrible summer with the Dursleys, Harry can’t wait returning back to the school with all of his friends. But right before he leaves, he gets a warning from a pathetic, little house-elf that says that if Harry returns awful things will happen.
And at Hogwarts the trouble starts. Harry would have to put up with the Self- loving new teacher, Gilroy Lockhart. And constant admiring from his best friend little sister Ginny, and another first-year. But al of this seems as bagatelles as the story repeat it self after fifty years and kids all over school are turning into stone.
Last time a girl died, but they got the guilty. This time no one knows who or what is causing this, but the person they suspect the most is Harry Potter…
The book was first published in Great Britain 1998 of Bloomsbury Publishing as a great follow up of J. K. Rowling’s first book Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone.
J. K. Rowling has managed to create whole new world that people just can’t get enough of. She has managed to swipe away the readers away from their reading chairs and in to this new world full of humor, excitement, mystery and magic.
The book barley gets boring a second thanks to the unexpected surprises during the story and it is a fun book for both children and adults.
