well, probably i’ve started my journey to the hogwarts too late. but it’s better late than never, isn’t it?
by reading the books right after the movies, i’ve obviously got some advantages – i know exactly the way it should look like, the way it ends, and the whole plot itself. however, there’re some crucial remarks which were not covered in movies, but really are meaningful.
p.s. the movies though made an awful twist to the imagination – i couldn’t build my own image, throughout the text i was just restoring the scenes i’d seen in movies
the chamber of secrets wasn't my favourite movie in harry potter series – it was so slow-burning and set so many unanswered questions.
however, the second book has changed it a wee bit.
perhaps, it’s still not my absolute favourite part of series, but i really like how, from this point on, the books started being different from the movies. how the characters of ron, hermione, and what’s really crucial, ginny got differentiated and changed their weight of importance in timeline. how the story got filled with more details which weren’t covered in movies, but still have significance in the whole story afterwards.
