Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire


I was excited when Lizzy told me I could talk about one of my favorite books in the Harry Potter series. Who knows, maybe she'll let me come back one day to tell you about another book.

Harry Potter’s scar has been hurting and he’s been having strange dreams. Getting to leave his aunt and uncle’s house to attend the Quidditch World Cup with his best friend and his family is a dream come true. After getting there by portkey, Harry can barely get over all the wonderful aspects of the Quidditch World Cup and the festival-like atmosphere surrounding it. Quidditch is his favorite sport and there is so much to take in. But when Voldemort’s dark mark shows up in the sky it becomes apparent that Lord Voldemort is back and he still has followers. Arriving at Hogwarts for their fourth year, Harry, Ron, and Hermione are excited to learn that their school will be hosting the first Triwizard Tournament in over two hundred years. The contest is only open to those over 17 years old. Students and professors from other schools come to Hogwarts to see if the Goblet of Fire will pick them to participate. The names of those who wish to participate go into the goblet, and then the competitors are announced. Somehow the goblet spits out two names from Hogwarts- Cedric Diggory and Harry Potter. People are upset and feel that Harry cheated, but he didn't. Now the tasks start and the danger is real. These tasks will leave one person as the champion and the stakes are high. Not everyone will get out alive. Will Harry encounter Lord Voldemort again? Does He have what it takes to stay alive during the games? Will Harry ever find out who put his name in the goblet? You don’t want to miss this page turner!

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling is the fourth book in the Harry Potter series. Harry grows in the book as a person and as a wizard. As a teenager he goes through arguments with his friends, starts being interested in girls, and he sees a death which solidifies the gravity of his situation at Hogwarts. Harry has always been mischievous, but when the time comes to choose between right and wrong- he always chooses right. I really liked the Triwizard Tournament and some of the challenges they had- especially the gillyweed. I think that this was the most trying year for Harry because he finally realized what Voldemort was all about. I would recommend this book to people who enjoy a mystery, the supernatural, and a lot of action. Fans of Harry Potter will definitely like this book!

Has anyone else read Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire? Or have you read another book by J.K. Rowling? We’d love to hear your thoughts.
