Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must-Have, Even If You Already Have These illustrations by Jim Kay are just beautiful. They have echos of the movie but are really their own interpretation at the same time. That's part of what I love about them. The portraits of individual characters need to be prints. I really hope they are alble to do all 7 books, because 4-7 are significantly larger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection! I think I always considered <i>Chamber of Secrets</i> to be my least favourite of the series, but I think I can't make a judgement until after I reread all the books, because this story was easily as good as when I reread the first book. Obviously, the illustrations are a huge reason for that, and once again it felt like coming home. As I did with the previous illustrated edition, I'm just going to list some thoughts: - MORE FORESHADOWING! Primarily when Dumbledore speaks about Riddle's diary - I can really see how Ron will develop feelings for Hermione. He's so protective and ready to fight anyone who insults her. Love it! - Speaking of Ron, I see a lot of myself in him, especially when it comes to my loyalty to my friends. - I had forgotten how this book has a really fun mystery aspect, and seeing how everything adds up right before the climax of the story is so satisfying. - The illustrations are so dark and eerie in this one, making it a perfect fall read. I need to get my greedy hands on the the next illustrated book. I'm dying for more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Artwork! This edition of the Chamber of Secrets is simply superb!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sequel to the first illustrated book I had so much fun reading this after finishing the Philosopher's Stone. The illustrations really enhance the story. Jim Kay doesn't illustrate every single moment of course, but that only makes you want to keep reading to see which scenes he chose to depict - they are a lovely compliment to J.K. Rowling's already great writing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely beautiful! I have reread this book countless times but for the first time, I read the illustrated edition by Jim Kay that was just recently released. As for the novel, unsurprisingly, it's a classic. It's enjoyable and exciting for all ages, and I never get sick of rereading this book (or the series in general). As for this illustrated edition, it truly is beautiful and a beautiful companion and extra to the series. I remember when 'Chamber of Secrets' first came out in novel form and my Mom would read it to me before bed. There were no pictures aside from the cover (and the beginning of each chapter for American readers) so as a child, I imagined and visualized everything. To be honest, I think for first time readers of the series, I would recommend reading the novels first without pictures so they gain the whole creative, imagination experience. But now, as a forever Potter fan, I am so happy about these illustrated editions. The artwork is beautiful, the quality of the book and the pages is also fantastic. Definitely a good item to have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The wait is over! Since the release of the first illustrated version, i could not wait to get my hands on this second one, and I was not disappointed. As usual, the quality is superb, from the material of the book, the illustrations and art etc. I have tread the story probably more than 10 times already, but the different approach in the art and illustration add to the overall wonderful and magical experience! Definitely a must-buy book!
