This is absolutely my favourite Harry Potter novel. It grapples with new, innovative plot twists and leaves the reader wanting more. It is truly a magical world that J. K. Rowling has painted us all, though the faeries are replaced with veelas. Read it. You will certainly not be disappointed.

Right smack dab in the middle of the Harry Potter saga, J.K. Rowling does a magnificent job of keeping the innocence of school years well in place, while at the same time continuing to wrench up the danger and intrigue elements, making it an incredibly balanced tale. We get to see all of these characters at their best and also at their most vulnerable. We get even better perspective as to just what lengths bad guy Voldemort will go to in his pursuit of immortality.

A nearly perfect story.

This book, and the entire series, changed the literary world for children. To see kids everwhere sit down and tackle a book of this manitude was incredible. I loved that J.K. did not shy away from writing epic novels for youth-- she wrote until the story was told to its full glory.

Great book. This is my absolute favorite series, and when this book came out I loved the series even more! This book gets a little darker, and the characters are growing up and getting a little angry at times.

From start to end this book keeps you interested! There is always something happening.

Highly recommended.

Others I like: Twilight series, Blue Bloods series, and the Uglies series.

Product details 752 pages Scholastic Paperbacks - English 9780439139601 Reviews:
"Review" by , "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire brings the fun, and not just in stingy little buckets. At 734 pages, Goblet brings it by the lorry load. The most remarkable thing about this book is that Rowling's punning, one-eyebrow-cocked sense of humor goes the distance....She gives the reader a quick wink and a giggle before hustling him or her along again, all the while telling her tale at top speed....The fantasy writer's job is to conduct the willing reader from mundanity to magic. This is a feat of which only a superior imagination is capable, and Rowling possesses such equipment."
"Review" by , "J.K. Rowling has not lost her touch. The fourth in her series starring the courageous young wizard is just as absorbing as its celebrated predecessors."
"Review" by , "The longest of the books, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is also the most relaxed and, ultimately, the most intense in the series so far....By time time I finished [the book] I was wrung out, exhausted and transported. Like all great fantasy sagas, the Harry Potter books have grown narratively, morally and psychologically more complex as the series progresses. There is a special pressure on a writer who midway through a series finds herself entrusted with the imagination of a huge number of readers. That Rowling has done nothing to break that faith seems a deed as brave and noble as any her hero has accomplished."
"Review" by , "There are some Christians who view...the magical scenarios of J.K. Rowling's imagination [as] inherently un-Christian. I would counter that, instead, these books have the potential to be profoundly Christian if readers can see past the medium (magic) to the novels' deeper messages about self-sacrifice, the triumph of good over evil, and the glorious possibility of human redemption."
"Review" by , "As the midpoint in a projected seven-book series, Goblet of Fire is exactly the big, clever, vibrant, tremendously assured installment that gives shape and direction to the whole undertaking and still somehow preserves the material's enchanting innocence. This time Ms. Rowling offers her clearest proof yet of what should have been wonderfully obvious: what makes the Potter books so popular is the radically simple fact that they're so good."
"Review" by , "The details are as ingenious and original as ever....A climax even more spectacular than that of Azkaban will leave readers breathless; the muscle-building heft of this volume notwithstanding, the clamor for book five will begin as soon as readers finish installment four."
"Review" by , "Rowling has a way of making the wildest, most whimsically unlikely conventions and scenarios seem utterly plausible, of creating a world so convincing that you don't even stop to question the existence of flying broomsticks and invisibility cloaks."
"Review" by , "[A]nother grand tale of magic and mystery, of wheels within wheels oiled in equal measure by terror and comedy, featuring an engaging young hero-in-training who's not above the occasional snit, and clicking along so smoothly that it seems shorter than it is."
"Synopsis" by , Fourteen-year-old Harry Potter joins the Weasleys at the Quidditch World Cup, then enters his fourth year at Hogwarts Academy where he is mysteriously entered in an unusual contest that challenges his wizarding skills, friendships and character, amid signs that an old enemy is growing stronger.
"Synopsis" by , A teenager pitching headfirst into the world of near adulthood, Harry returnsto Hogwarts for his fourth year.
