#YearofHarryPotter: Chamber of Secrets, Chapters 14-18

With the last five chapters ("Cornelius Fudge," "Aragog," "The Chamber of Secrets," "The Heir of Slytherin" and "Dobby's Reward"), I have finished Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets!

Most of this section of the book was exactly as I remembered it, but it was still enjoyable to follow Harry through the final events of this second installment, including seeing Hermione petrified, paying a visit to Aragog, and most importantly, making the connection that Tom Riddle is actually Lord Voldemort.  (I had forgotten that this was not common knowledge prior to the events of this book.) As with last week's segment of the book, the ending did seem to go by much more quickly than it did the first time around, but that is probably at least in part because I knew what was going to happen.

Next week, I'll be jumping into book three, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Of the first three books, I always think of this one as my favorite, because of the way it plays with time, so I'm looking forward to discovering whether that is still true.
