I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! IT'S JUST SIMPLY AMAZING. I LOVE J.K Rowling. There is no words to describe this book.

Feb 21, 2015

J.K. Rowling is such an amazing author. Especially with the way she wrote her Harry Potter series. But the Goblet Of Fire really stood out to me. I feel that this was the turning point in the whole series which brought out the maturity in all of the characters. Harry somehow hysterically has his name put in the goblet of fire which determines who will participate in the Triwiazrd tournament. A deadly tournament for 1 person from each wizard school. When Harry hears his name get called he becomes terrified for his life. At least he knows that he has his two best friends Ron and Heroine to be there for him and support him if he ever needs anything. However the part that caught me off guard was when the complete twisted ending. Turning the whole Howgwarts and Wizard world around. Somehow I wish that I lived in the Harry Potter world. In the books you can imagine so many different thing and how different situations play out. The style of J.K Rowling is so unique. When she writes its like reading a whole bunch of fantasy movie lines. The detail is so specific and brings so much to life. You will literally feel like u have been lifted up and put into the actually book. Its like reading the diary of someone living in a magical fantasy world. This book was the start of something completely new but the same at the same time. I really hope that this helps you and convinces you to read this book.

How does she do it? J.K. Rowling has accomplished the impossible: written a book that tops all her extraordinary others, which is an amazing feat in itself. Another outstanding stunt she pulled off is in the story itself; you'd think that after three 500-something paged books, she'd start running out of ideas. But every book, (and I can promise you this, as I've read and re-read every single book and watched and re-watched every movie in the series countless times) she always solves a couple of problems, half-solves a few more, and makes each situation raise a bunch. Plus, Rowling seems to posses an impressive imagination as she tells us about this world of hers in such detail it practically comes alive. I read the first book at age 7-I must've read this at around 8, and even as an inexperienced 7 year old I feel in love with this series (and that's saying something, because I hated reading in the first place in those days). My eight year old self relished this book, and my thirteen year old self still does. This is the "rising action" in the whole series, the conclusion which changes the course of all the characters, and the book itself, completely. If you haven't read the series yet, do it NOW!! (Just make sure to read and watch in order-it's essential!)

The villains of the series show their disturbing cruelty, while the heroes confront social prejudices and early romance. Best for older readers.

It is an addicting book, you won't be able to stop until the end!

“Understanding is the first step to acceptance, and only with acceptance can there be recovery.”

“Don't talk to me."
"Why not?"
"Because I want to fix that in my memory for ever. Draco Malfoy, the amazing bouncing ferret...”

“Who're you going with, then?" said Ron.
"Angelina," said Fred promptly, without a trace of embarrassment.
"What?" said Ron, taken aback. "You've already asked her?"
"Good point," said Fred. He turned his head and called across the common room, "Oi! Angelina!"
Angelina, who had been chatting with Alicia Spinnet near the fire, looked over at him.
"What?" She called back.
"Want to come to the ball with me?"
Angelina gave Fred a sort of appraising look.
"All right, then," she said, and she turned back to Alicia and carried on chatting with a bit of a grin on her face.
"There you go," said Fred to Harry and Ron, "piece of cake.”

“Anyone can speak Troll. All you have to do is point and grunt.”

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 book opens up with the spying on Voldemort by muggle Frank Bryce. He manages to hear as far that Voldemort's deepest desire was to murder a boy named Harry Potter, whoever he was, and he had killed in the past with no remorse-before he was discovered and killed himself. The boy who was also spying, though unconsciously, and in his sleep, the very person who was target of Voldemort's murderous desires, was not discovered.

Harry became incredibly worried at this vision and that his lightning scar, mark of the first, but certainly far from last, attempt at slaughtering him by Voldemort. Was Voldemort growing stronger, as all signs seemed to indicate? Harry didn't dwell on it for about two days (spent by the Weasleys and watching the Quidditch World Cup). But at the end of that he was seriously alarmed and alert, because Voldemort's sign, the Dark Mark, had appeared again after thirteen years, after a riot which was heavily suspected of being made by the remainder of the Death Eaters (Voldemort's supporters). His fears weren't baseless either, as somebody had put his name into the Goblet of Fire against his will, and Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody, dulusional ex-Auror thought someone had done it to get him killed in the process.

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
