Reviews for Harry Potter and the Chamber
Re-reading again, and I still wish Hogwarts was real and that I had gone to school there.
"...The world-building also becomes a little more developed since the first book - Rowling takes us to a few new places, and we learn a little more about the wizard world: new methods of transportation, for instance, and wizards' apparently complete ignorance of anything non-magical. Ron's dad works in the Misuse of Muggle Artifacts department at the ministry, and when he seems so genuinely dazzled by the workings of non-magical items, asking Harry about things like escalators and the Underground, I always think of the line from that Insane Clown Posse song - "f____n' magnets, how do they work?"
One thing I like about Chamber of Secrets is how much more action there is than in The Sorcerer's Stone - there's a lot of suspense, then once the pieces are in place, it gets very exciting. I mean, that sword at Harry's hip? Yeah, not just cover art. He gets to use a sword. He also gets sprayed with blood (though it isn't too graphic for the age group of the target audience). It is kind of awesome."
