Not my favourite of the series; However I loved the illustrations for this edition, It really brought out the wonder of the story. I have to say that Jim did an amazing job picking where and when to illustrate parts of the novel. I have to say that the illustrated editions of the Harry Potter series has really brought new life to the well known tale.

Another excellent Harry Potter novel, though the end wrapped up a little quickly. I wish it was a little longer, it's hard to leave Hogwarts!

Great book! FYI , in the version i had chapters 8 ( Deathday Party) and 9 ( Writing on the Wall) had pages out of sequence.... but you can jump to each page to stay in order.

I've read books one to five so far, and this one the pick of the series. I like it when Ron rescues him in a flying car! And I also liked it Hermoine Granger, the HUGE know it all turn into a wolf- from that polyjuice potion. I like the ending as well when Harry saves Ginny, Ron's sister, and finds that silly Lockheart had not done those amazing things he had written in his books! He cast a memory charm on the people who actually did!! I recommend this to anyone who likes adventure books.
P.S. I really am so not a muggle!!!

Hermione: "Harry--I think I've just understood something! I've got to go to the library!"

And she sprinted away, up the stairs.

Harry: "What does she understand?"
Ron: "Loads more than I do."
Harry: "But why's she got to go to the library?"
Ron (shrugs): "Because that's what Hermione does. When in doubt, go to the library."

A mysterious elf tells Harry to expect trouble during his second year at Hogwarts, but nothing can prepare him for trees that fight back, flying cars, spiders that talk and deadly warnings written in blood on the walls of the school.

After a curious encounter with a house elf named Dobby, and being nearly expelled for flying Mr. Weasley's car to Hogwarts, Harry thinks he'll have a quiet break from everything at last. Soon, trouble starts again, thereby dashing all hopes for a normal-or as normal as Hogwarts could get-school year. People aren't sure who the culprit is; all they know is that he or she is a direct heir of Salazar Slytherin, pureblood loving founder of Hogwarts. Could it possibly be Draco Malfoy, a muggle-born hating enemy of Harry's? Maybe it's Hagrid, whose mysterious past is finally revealed? Harry, determined to find the culprit, is dismayed when he realizes who everyone really suspects....himself!

Frightening or Intense Scenes: It is a little bit more intense than the first book so if you are younger you might want to wait a bit before reading it.
