Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire by J.K. Rowling...

Series: Harry Potter (Book #4)
Published: September 1st 2002 by Scholastic Inc.
Pages: 734
Rating: 4 stars
Age Recommendation: -


Harry Potter is midway through his training as a wizard and his coming of age. Harry wants to get away from the pernicious Dursleys and go to the International Quidditch Cup. He wants to find out about the mysterious event that's supposed to take place at Hogwarts this year, an event involving two other rival schools of magic, and a competition that hasn't happened for a hundred years. He wants to be a normal, fourteen-year-old wizard. But unfortunately for Harry Potter, he's not normal - even by wizarding standards. And in his case, different can be deadly.


I had high hopes for this book when I started reading it because I had really enjoyed reading the third book in the series, so I was hoping that this book was going to be even better, which it definitely was.

The plot. I thought that the plot of this book has to be the most thoughtout and involved plot so far in the series, with having to think up so many more creatures, plotlines and characters to carry out this book and I think that the hard work that has been put into this book really shows. I thought that the plot was a lot more detailed and attention-grabbing than the previous three books and I also thought that this book had a lot more mystery and investigating in it than the other books which I loved. But one of the main parts of the book that really grabbed my attention was the tri-wizard tourniment tasks, they were written in such detail that I could really see what was going on in my mind as I was reading it. And I also thought that the relationships between the charatcers weather they were new or old characters were a lot more detailed than in the previous books.

The characters. I loved the characters in this book, I loved how I got to see witches and wizards from different schools around the world and how they are different from the students at Hogwarts. As always I loved the Weasly family as their antics (especially the twins in this book) never fail to entertain me while I'm reading this series. I found myself really likeing Hermione in this book and I also loved how I got to see the slight but obvious change in her and Ron's relationship throughout the book. Another charatcer I found myself likeing in this book was Harry, I thought that he seemed more relateable in this book and I just ended up likeing his character a lot more than I used to, and I also really liked Cedric's character, I thought that he was a very kind-hearted, loyal and polite character which I really liked seeing in this book.

Overall I really liked this book and I can see that this series is getting stronger and more interesting with each book I read, so I can't wait to see whats going to happen in the next book.
