Harry miserable looking forward to the horrible summer holidays with the Dursleys ending. But a poor little elf tells Harry about the deadly danger awaiting him at Hogwarts. Back in school, Harry hears a rumor circulating about the secret chamber, which holds scary mysteries for Muggle-born witches. Someone was enchanting to paralyze people, causing them to almost die, and a horrifying warning was found on the wall. The leading doubt – and always wrong – is Harry. But something even darker was revealed.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Audiobook
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Audiobook free download is a fantasy audiobook written by British author J. K. Rowling and the second novel in the Harry Potter Audio Books series. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets textbook was published in the UK on 2 July 1998 and in the US on 2 June 1999. It immediately took first place in UK best-seller lists, displacing popular authors such as John Grisham, Tom Clancy, and Terry Pratchett, and making Rowling the first author to win the British Book Awards Children’s Book of the Year for two years in succession.
Several commentators have noted that personal identity is a strong theme in the Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Audiobook free, and that it addresses issues of racism through the treatment of non-human, non-magical and non-living people. Some commentators regard the diary as a warning against uncritical acceptance of information from sources whose motives and reliability cannot be checked. Institutional authority is portrayed as self-serving and incompetent.
“‘There is a plot, Harry Potter. A plot to make most terrible things happen at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry this year.'”
All Harry Potter wants is to get away from the Dursleys and go back to Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. But just as he’s packing his bags, Harry receives a warning from a strange, impish creature named Dobby – who says that if Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts, disaster will strike.
And strike it does. For in Harry’s second year at Hogwarts, fresh torments and horrors arise, including an outrageously stuck-up new professor, Gilderoy Lockheart, a spirit named Moaning Myrtle who haunts the girls’ bathroom, and the unwanted attentions of Ron Weasley’s younger sister, Ginny.
But each of these seem minor annoyances when the real trouble begins, and someone–or something–starts turning Hogwarts students to stone. Could it be Draco Malfoy, a more poisonous rival than ever? Could it possibly be Hagrid, whose mysterious past is finally told? Or could it be the one everyone at Hogwarts most suspects… Harry Potter himself.
There are two versions of the Chamber of Secrets Audiobook, one narrated by Stephen Fry, and the other Jim Dale. Please find our overview below and and a side by side video for comparison.
Chamber of Secrets Audiobook by Stephen Fry:
Stephen Fry makes the characters even more vivid. His voice for Hagrid is low, gruff and gentle, just what you would expect. Hermione sounds incredibly precocious and annoying but gradually becomes less so as the book progresses. The story wraps you in a warm cloak of positive feelings, happiness and a sense of belonging. Having Fry read such a lovely story to you makes it all the more comforting and enjoyable. Even though Harry Potter is J K Rowlings first book and her prose may be flawed in places, (particularly in the beginning describing life with the Dursleys) Harry Potter is undoubtedly a classic made even more magical by Stephen Fry. I highly recommend this audiobook for all ages.
Chamber of Secrets Audiobook by Jim Dale:
Jim Dale is another fantastic narrator. Born in England, Dale also has an English accent. Dale is a voice artist, and definitely weighted towards to the dramatized end of the scale. Dale invites a sense of urgency in his voice, and has you on your toes. This increased dramatization, although predominantly great, I feel it is sometimes a little over the top.
Dale is magician in character range; he created 134 voices for the Harry Potter series. This series has given Dale more awards than any narrator previous. His prestige, and breadth of bestseller coverage is rather astonishing.
Overall, Chamber Of Secrets’ high points are funnier, scarier and more action-heavy than in the first movie. The effects also look more polished – no dodgy centaurs this time – and Dobby the house elf is an expressive little creation, even if he does induce that CG-inflicted disease, ‘jarjaritis’, during an early scene with Harry.
On his second and probably final Potter flick, director Chris Columbus shows more visual confidence, and has become more daring with his swooping computer-assisted camera shots across landscapes and locations. But the film’s length does remain a stumbling block – you could adapt War And Peace in a shorter running time – so perhaps only the most attentive children will remain spellbound for its entirety.
Why should you listen to the Chamber of Secrets Audiobook free?
This has always been my favourite Harry Potter audiobook of the series (closely followed by the Goblet of Fire Audiobook). I love a good mystery and the Chamber of Secrets Audiobook was my first real introduction to this genre. I really loved the sequence of events that led Harry and Ron finally figuring out the secret of Salazaar Slytherin. The final chapters are just so intense because of this.
Also, apart from the Goblet of Fire, this is probably the scariest audiobook in the series. Bearing in mind I was five when I listened to it- every time Stephen Fry did the scary disembodied voice Harry kept hearing, I actually fast forwarded the tape or turned the volume down because it scared me so much. I’ve since gotten over that, but it’s still downright creepy. The magic in this book certainly takes a darker turn and we start to learn a lot more about Hogwarts, Voldemort and Harry himself.
If you haven’t read the books ( or have seen the movie and want a bit more insight into the mystery) then Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Audiobook free is a thoroughly enjoyable mystery, with a fair bit of Quidditch thrown in.
