- My Review: Usually sequels are not as good as the first, but could I be more wrong! This book was even better than the Philosopher's Stone! More action, suspense, mischief ( Yes, Harry and Ron are both pretty badass to be honest, but that's why Hermione is there, to keep them in line)! I couldn't wait to re-enter Hogwarts and attend Potions, Charms, Divination, Transfiguration, even the boring History of Magic! As Harry drives a flying car ( Holy crap! A flying car!), all the students mysteriously turn to stone, and Harry meets again with a younger Voldemort, things take a twist for the better. I can't get over how astonishing this book was! As I was reading this in my living room, I had to move to the upstairs where it was quiet so I could think properly, all these magical thoughts running through my head. At first, it's hard to wrap your head around but, once you get the concept (this goes for every one of her books) you are amazed by its complexity and true imagination put into this. J.K Rowling is the most intelligent person I know of, and I have no idea how she came up with all these hidden secrets within the books that reveal themselves later in the series or the creative pattern of all her stories!
Overall, I enjoyed this book so much! Be sure to check out my review on Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban!
