Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire by J. K. Rowling
Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire

xmariii, February 17, 2009

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire has to be my favorite of the series. It is no longer just childrens literature. It captivates a very large audience of all ages.

This book is darker than the previous 3 books in the series. It begins with a very dark scene (Harry's dream). Harry sees Voldemort plotting his return and revenge. From there, the story line is just as dark. But along with all the darkness, it relates to teens, like me. There is romance, friendships (and fights), and problems like asking people out. It sounds a little mushy, but J.K. Rowling does a superb job of making this appealing to all audiences.

There is so much going on in this book. A new thing called the Triwizard Tournament, which is a tournament held between three wizardry schools :Hogwarts, Beaux-Batons, and Durmstrang. They are competing to win the cup and get the title.
There are also new characters and new twists that J.K. Rowling weaves together effortlessly.

When reading this book, you are instantly hooked and can't stop reading. Don't let the number of pages scare you away (734). Just start reading and you'll enjoy it for sure. (:
