On July 31, 1964 J.K. Rowling was born, the iconic author of the Harry Potter series. After being put down and told that she could not write a darn, she was able to prove all of the publishers wrong with the success of the Harry Potter fandom. All of the books have been made into movies and tonight I am covering the second film Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
Despite a warning from a desperate house elf, Dobby, Harry Potter gladly returns to his second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. However, his return is not without a few challenges. Trying to get on the train with his friend Ron Weasley, they end up taking a car and driving it to school because they could not get n the platform. Once at Hogwarts the two avoid expulsion with detention. Harry ends up getting stuck with star struck Gilderoy Lockhart for all of his time. Sadly, one night after detention with Lockhart, Harry comes across the caretakers cat paralyzed with a message about the Chamber of Secrets being open. Soon after, many more students end up becoming paralyzed with the suspicion falling upon Harry. Harry knows that it is not, willingly, him. So, he, along with Ron and Hermione Granger do some investigating to catch the criminal and clear Harry’s name. Sadly, when Hermione falls victim and the “creature” ends up taking its final victim, it is up to Harry and Ron to solve the mystery of the Chamber of Secrets once and for all.
J.K. Rowling created the magical world of Harry Potter. Being a young adult, I was constantly whisked away into this world that many people have fallen in love with. On July 31, J.K. Rowling celebrates her birthday and as a inspiring writer, I hope she has a great one.
