Rezensionen und Bewertungen
After I was so impressed and bewitched by the illustrated edition of the first Harry Potter book, I had to continue reading and admiring the second edition of the series. Again Jim Kay did excellent work with the drawings and illustrations that the reader can find in this edition. Although I must confess that whilst reading I had the impression there're less pictures than in the first book (sorry the kid inside of me is speaking :p ).
Reading the second book of J. K. Rowlings masterpiece was like coming home again: And it was exactly that, because Hogwarts really feels like home, no matter how often I read the books! It was great pleasure meeting Harry, Ron and Hermione again, laughing about and also with the Weasley's and rediscovering new adventures in the second schoolyear of Harry's. Finally, one of my favourite creatures/characters of the story appeared: Dobby. I love the houself, I love his dedication to protect Harry and also his loyalty towoards him, although he has other masters he hast to serve. I cannot say the same about Professor Gildoroy Lockhart, a very amusing and funny man, which I could not always take seriously. But then again, the book wouldn't be as amusing and entertaining as it is without him.
You will find that I will only truly have left the school when none here are loyal to me. You will also find that help will always be given at Hogwarts to those who ask for it.
Like the first edition I also adore this illustrated version with its convenient pictures, which are sometimes even a bit scary because of certain dark creatures. In my opinion, it's suitable for young readers because the images can help or improve their imagination of the scenes, too. Again it deserves the best rating not only for the story itself but also for the incredible illustrations.Fazit (deutsch)
Die illustrierte Ausgabe von Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets von J. K. Rowling ist genauso besonders und schön aufgearbeitet wie sein Vorgänger. Wieder waren wunderschöne Illustrationen darin zu finden, die die Geschichte sehr schön in Szene setzen. Eine meiner liebsten Figuren, Dobby, erscheint hier erstmals und ist der treue, loyale Freund Harrys, obwohl er anderen Herren dienen muss. Ich liebe dieses wunderbare Wesen! Ich halte an meiner Überzeugung, dass es wunderbar zum Vorlesen geeignet ist, fest und möchte wieder die bestmögliche Bewertung vergeben. Einfach ein wunderbares Buch mit wunderschönen Illustrationen!
Harry Potter can´t wait to go back to Hogwarts. But something is going on there. First there is this strange house-elf named Dobby at Dursley´s house saying he must not return to his school, then he has to go back to Hogwarts by a flying car and last but not least there is something in the old castle, attacking muggleborns! What is going on? Is Harry able to protect his best friend - and muggleborn - Hermione?
After the phenomenal illustrations in Harry Potter and the Philosophers´s Stone I preordered Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets as soon as possible. I know the story by heart, but with those beautiful illustrations it is kind of a new adventure to join. Full of little details - you can discover something new everytime you look at the pictures! The illustrations are gorgeous and I´m really happy that Jim Kay will illustrate all seven books.
The illustrations show us a whole new world. They match perfectly with the story and it´s somehow like reading it once again for the very first time. You can discover something new whenever looking at the illustrations. The sizes of the illustrations are small and big and sometimes two pages. It´s perfect!
I love Harry Potter and I surely can´t imagine live without it. This edition is so beautiful you simply can´t miss it! It´s for us adults, grewing up with Harry Potter a great addition to our collection and for everyone, discovering Harry Potter for the very first time it´s great as well. I just imagine showing my kids - if I ever will have some - this beautiful books and show them the world I grew up with...
The story is perfect - with or without illustrations. But the illustrations make the story somehow new and this is great! I never regret buying this book and I can´t wait for October 2017 and the third illustrated edition.
