Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fireby J. K. Rowling
Synopses & Reviews
It is not surprising that J. K. Rowling needed a break before writing the fifth Harry Potter book. The first four came out within a couple of years, to record breaking success. What is surprising is how she managed to maintain such quality in the first four, each new book being longer and more complex, while building fantastically on its predecessor. The fifth installment, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, promises to be over a third longer than the fourth volume, Goblet of Fire, which is staggering considering that Goblet of Fire is 734 pages long! More staggering still, in regards to Rowling's output, is that Goblet of Fire is a really great book. While at times darker than the previous volumes, and with some moments of genuine, heightened emotion, Goblet of Fire retains Rowling's deliciously wicked humor and startling imagination. While the wait is still on for Order of the Phoenix, due to be released on June 21, Goblet of Fire is the perfect way to remember what all the fuss is about. Georgie, Powells.com
It's the pivotal fourth novel in the seven-part saga of a young wizard's coming of age. The thickest. The juiciest yet. Harry Potter turns fourteen. But will all his friends? Rumors have persisted that one of the characters may not see the conclusion of this novel, something the author has refused either to confirm or deny. But we who love Ron, Hermione, Hagrid...even pitiful Neville Longbottom...wait anxiously to see if they will make it through safely. No one's fate is certain when Volde — excuse me — He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named is part of the picture.
What is certain is that a novel of excruciating suspense awaits, leavened by J. K. Rowling's inimitable sense of humor and the burgeoning details of her magical world. Whether it's taking a front-row seat at the International Quidditch World Cup, or meeting the new Defense-Against-the-Dark-Arts teacher, or finding out if Harry really does start a romance with Cho Chang, fans of the history-making boy-wizard will find their thirst for Hogwarts adventure slaked deliciously...at least for a little while!
