Dear J.K Rowling,
I recently have read your novel Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. I really enjoyed your first book, I was looking forward to reading this one! I’m writing to you so you have my opinion on your novel and you know some of the questions that come to mind when I read this book. I like the mysteries in each book and how Harry struggles to keep Wizardry to himself and other wizards. I honestly didn’t know if Harry would return back to Hogwarts after summer vacation, being locked up in the Dursley’s basement. When the Weasley’s saved Harry that gave me a sign of relief. Harry was saved from the cruel world of muggles and could finally return to Hogwarts, where he belonged.
Your writing style keeps me wanting to read more! I never know what to expect and when to expect it. Different tones and conflicts keep things interesting. Most of the book, in my opinion was really suspenseful. For instance, like the time Ron and Harry caused commotion at Hogwart’s Express on the trolleys and had to combine their minds to think of a way to get to school on time. They ended up taking Mr. Weasley’s flying car. This part had me thinking. I was wondering if with the muggles watching, and some claim to have seen the car, if they will discover Harry and Ron’s wizardry secrets? Will they make it to school on time? What are Mr and Mrs. Weasley going to think when they don’t arrive at Hogwarts on the Hogwarts Express like they assumed?
I like how descriptive your writing is, when events are taking place I feel like I’m actually there. There isn’t anything I dislike about your novel. I felt like I could be in the events that were taking place because of how descriptive you are. Like when Ron and Harry used the car to get to Hogwarts and what they observed during this adventurous trip. “Past swirls and turrets of snowy cloud, in a car full of hot, bright sun, with a fat pack of toffees in the glove compartment, and the prospect of seeing Fred’s and George’s jealous faces when they landed smoothly and spectacularly on the sweeping lawn in front of Hogwart’s castle.” I also like how you addressed the question as to why Harry and Ron couldn’t get onto platform nine and three quarters numerous times, because that question still came to mind throughout the whole novel.
My favorite character so far would be Snape. I think it’s funny how he treats Harry and how he is so negative and harsh. Like when he wants Harry and Ron to be expelled and the other professors who were in charge let it go with a minor compromise. I am excited to find out what happens in the other novels with his and Harry’s relationship.
I’m really curious as to why you chose to write about wizards. How much time does it take up to come up with the strange events and weird things that happen in Harry Potter? Do you have an interest in wizards beyond your writing? I can’t wait to read your other five books soon. Thank you for your time.
