Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is the pivot point for the entire series. The first three books elevated JK Rowling out of obscurity while GoF and the final three books launched Harry Potter to global adoration. Tonally, Goblet of Fire is one long goodbye to Harry's childhood culminating with a foreboding preview of what's to come. The movie version, while fun, moves way too fast. I get it though, it needs too. Otherwise the pacing would crawl. The book however allows for the individual stories to develop that ultimately enrich the whole: Hermione's SPEW, the beginnings of Weasleys' Wizarding Wheezes, Percy's enthusiasm for working at the ministry, Dobby making an appearance, Rita Skeeter's secret and more. Every HP book is fun to read; this one is the most fun for me.

This book is spectacular. The plot is always twisting and turning, with a deep, deep mystery. I couldn't stop reading!

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, the fourth and likely my favourite installment in the critically acclaimed series written by J.K. Rowling, presents one with a rewarding read filled with action, adventure and mystery that makes the title seemingly impossible to put down. The story begins with Harry in a nightmare, that involves Lord Voldemort, the traitor Wormtail, and the cold-blooded murder of an old muggle man. Harry awakens with a searing pain in his scar, and feels that the dream was too real to not have been a live look-in at Voldemort at the time, somehow connected through his mysterious scar. The summer progresses with the Quidditch World Cup taking place, and Ron’s father inviting Harry and Hermione to join the Weasley family for to attend the match and stay for the remainder of the summer. But danger looms for Harry and the wizarding world in the form of Voldemort’s loyal supporters, the Death Eaters, and a plan being hatched to revive Voldemort to his once all-powerful form. Back at Hogwarts, Harry is mysteriously entered, despite being underage, to compete in the deadly Triwizard Tournament involving two other magical schools, the dark Durmstrang and the French Beauxbatons. Will Harry be able to survive the life or death stakes, mature competitors, and other hidden dangers the tournament holds? This non-stop, action-packed tale is sure to grab the attention of a variety of both casual browsers and reading enthusiasts, with a dark and ominous twist that is sure to have fans begging for more.

Harry Potter starts his fourth year at Hogwarts with a shocking turn of events - Hogwarts is hosting the Triwizard tournament, where three witches and/or wizards compete in an epic battle to claim the Triwizard cup. When Harry unexpectedly becomes the fourth champion of this competition, he is shocked. Who put Harry's name in the Goblet of Fire, the cup in which Dumbledore (the headmaster) draws the names of the contestants who compete from the three schools (Hogwarts, Beauxbatons, Durmstrang) ? And why does his scar throb so painfully? Mysteries await in this fourth installment to the Harry Potter series, mysteries that end in something unspeakable.

Harry Potter as he wakes in the night with a throbbing pain in his scar. The next morning, Harry's Uncle Vernon receives a letter from the Weasleys asking Harry to join them at the Quidditch World Cup, and reluctantly agrees to let Harry go. Harry is brought to The Burrow the next day. Early the next morning, the Weasleys, Harry and Hermione head off to the Quidditch World Cup. They travel by Portkey, an object which wizards use to travel quickly to another linked destination. While traveling, they meet Cedric Diggory, another Hogwarts student. At their seat, Harry, Ron, and Hermione meet Winky, a house-elf who says she is saving a seat for her master, Bartemius 'Barty' Crouch. That night, after the game, a crowd of Death Eaters (followers of Voldemort) destroy the campground and torture its Muggle owners. Harry, Hermione and Ron escape by fleeing into the woods, where Harry discovers that his wand is missing. Moments later, someone fires Voldemort's symbol, the Dark Mark, using Harry's wand. Winky is found holding Harry's wand at the scene of the crime; Mr Crouch fires her as punishment for associating his name with the Dark Mark. Later at the Burrow, Cedric's father brings news that a man named Mad-Eye Moody attacked an intruder at his house, forcing Arthur to sort it out.
Upon arriving at Hogwarts, Professor Dumbledore announces that the Triwizard Tournament will take place at Hogwarts throughout the school year. The Tournament is a competition between three delegates, or "champions", one from each of the three great European schools of magic - Hogwarts, Beauxbatons, and Durmstrang. These champions compete in three tasks and they are given scores by the judges based on their performance

Remember, if the time should come when you have to make a choice between what is right, and what is easy, remember what happened to a boy who was good, and kind, and brave, because he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort.

The mind is not a book, to be opened at will and examined at leisure. Thoughts are not etched on the inside of skulls, to be perused by an invader. The mind is a complex and many-layered thing.

Indifference and neglect often do much more damage than outright dislike …We wizards have mistreated and abused our fellows for too long, and we are now reaping our reward.

Indeed, your failure to understand that there are things much worse than death has always been your greatest weakness.
