Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter #2) by J.K. Rowling

Again she writes a good fantasy/mystery/childhood adventure. Even when you know it can't be who Harry, Ron and Hermione initially think it is, it's quite puzzling. But the clues are all there and the story makes perfect sense. Fun, fun, fun...

“‘Ginny!’ said Mr Weasley, flabbergasted. ‘Haven’t I taught you anything? What have I always told you? Never trust anything that can think for itself if you can’t see where it keeps its brain.’” Heh heh. "Don't talk to strangers." Heh heh.

And the classic scene...

“‘It only put me in Gryffindor,’ said Harry in a defeated voice, ‘because I asked not to go in Slytherin …’

Exactly,’ said Dumbledore, beaming once more. ‘Which makes you very different from Tom Riddle. It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.’”
