Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really enjoyed it, but not as much as reading it the first time. This is the fourth Harry Potter book, the second time I've read it, and the first time I've listened to it on audio. Harry and his friends have returned to Hogwarts, but they don't yet realize what an exciting year it will be with a big event happening at their school that will include other wizarding schools from other parts of Europe, the Tri-Wizard Tournament. I didn't quite enjoy it as much as the first time around. I still really enjoyed the Tri-Wizard Tournament – that was still the best part for me (and one of the best parts of the entire series), but it didn't quite live up to my enjoyment of the first time around. I'm mixed about the narrator, Jim Dale. I mostly got used to him, but for the longest time, listening to his voices for the young people, and especially for the girls, grated on me a little bit. Otherwise, he did a good job, especially for the older characters. His Voldemort, in particular, was really good! And I did, mostly, get used to him, eventually. (Except his voice for Hermione, who often sounded way too whiney, especially the way he dragged out Harry's name while she was speaking!) Overall, I still really enjoyed it, but not as much as I remember liking it the first time around. The first time around, this was my favourite of the entire series until Deathly Hallows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire: Someone Comes Back J.K. follows up her first mature story with a bit of a departure to the past. One last shout-out to a young child's story, but at over 700 pages, she stretches this jaunt to previous elements somewhat too long. Thankfully the beginning and ending harkens us back to the edgier Potter we get for the rest of the series. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling is another transition book. To start with, what did not thrill me. The games of the Triwizard tournament really do not hold my interest that much, or at all. While she does an admirable job of expanding the wizarding universe and make the magic more sensible and workable, the actual tournament just strikes me as another plot device to facilitate her "Year In The Life" structure. So often a new challenge would pop up, and my interests would wane and wait for the real story to kick into high gear. Another idea started, and thankfully ending here, is Ron being a compete dolt. For those Potterheads about to argue here, Hallows was a different reason because Ron was noticeably under the influence. His character turn to jerk comes out of nowhere and is only resolved when he realizes Harry is yet again in mortal danger. Yes, I know Ron has an inferiority complex, but hating your best friend simply because you believe life sucks is not how the Weasleys raised him. As for what worked in Goblet? The very beginning, with the horrors of the history of the Riddle house, has all the hallmarks of J.K. hitting her stride. The absolute gothic despair mixed with urban legends and topped by exotic folklore all fill the pages with dread. It just feels like a stew of evil was always boiling in Tom Riddle's life, and we see further along in this series, the roots of this goes even further. We move from this onto our characters merrily journeying to the Quidditch World Cup and having an absolute blast. Seeing the sights, enjoying the tastes of the world they are being exposed to, and experiencing Quidditch played on a massive scale, are all wondrous times to remember forever. And then J.K. does the unthinkable and daring. She plunges us headfirst into a full fledged terrorist attack. For no rhyme or reason, Death Eaters disrupt the festivities, and cause immense emotional and physical damage. Just because. Any illusions that a war is in the offing are shattered by these opening salvos. And this utter destruction is just the beginning. By the end of Goblet we face the inevitable. For Voldemort is back. In the grand theatrical style that this fake Lord often employs, the entire rigging of every aspect of the Triwizard tournament was all to bring himself back to form. The sheer terror of this resurrection, followed by Voldemort's bullying of Harry, speaks volumes of the villainy represented. He wants to humiliate and demoralize Harry before he destroys him. This extremely powerful wizard still feels the need to tarnish a young boy in order to bolster a damaged ego. Anyone who hates bullies cringes at this part. This was harsh to read. With Voldemort now back and Harry preparing for war, the next leg of this journey is about to commence. Winning the hearts and minds of his allies. We embark on the dark path again. Time for some Order. Scoopriches

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fiery for sure There are so many things that I love about this book. First of all, as Harry, Ron and Hermione get older, they start maturing and facing the things that most teenagers do--dates for dances, apparent jealousy, crushes, arguments among friends. Rowling's character development shines through this novel. Specifically in this installment, we see dark forces arise more prevalently and dangerously then before. This is where I would stop calling them "children's books", per se, because this book just won't have its full effect on a younger audience. By the end of this novel, readers can now fully understand what kind of heavy burden Harry has to carry. Yes, it has been noted in all of the previous books that Harry isn't like any other normal teenage wizard. But here, we get to see the full consequences and responsibilities that come with having survived Voldemort's curse as a baby. One of Rowling's greatest strengths in this novel, in particular, is her use of suspense. She throws obvious clues into the story for the reader and builds her story slowly, but surely. Personally, once I hit the last 200 pages or so, I couldn't put the book down for any reason whatsoever. Once everything started slowly adding up, it was like I absolutely HAD to know how the story was going to turn out. And in this book, unlike the other ones, Voldemort has such a presence that readers are able to understand what it was like in the days of Voldemort's reign. Readers are able to see how serious this situation is, more so than before. By Voldemort becoming an actual physical entity, it adds a realistic edge to the series--not everything is always rainbows and butterflies. Rowling ends this book with such a cliffhanger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Suspenseful! This 4th installment of the Harry Potter series is one of the best. It will make you not ever put it down. The triwizard competition is the best part. To enter the triwizard competition you need to be at least 16. But Harry somehow got in! Harry was only 15. They need to find out who entered Harry in. Was it Voldemort? Snape? Maybe even Sirius black who may change sides on him? Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire will surely please you from the starting to the end. Out of 10 I personally would give it a 9.5. It is the second best book in the series! You will have to read this installment of the Harry Potter series!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome A great addition to the series. I loved that it still had all the classic elements of Harry Potter, but it introduced a new side to Hogwarts. The Twizard Tournament (GO KRUM!), and the tension between Hermione and Ron made this such a great book.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun to read, but good literature it isn't I have read all four Harry Potter books. And, I have to admit, they are fun and entertaining to read. But what irks me is when people constantly refer to these as "the best books ever" or "great literature for children." Talking to a friend (who also is a non-fanatical reader of Harry Potter), we both agreed on this sentiment. Yet when confronted by such criticisms, people blinded by Harry Potter mania tend to scoff and say, "Who cares? I read it for the entertainment value." (People have said this to me before!) Really? That's great. So do I. But then please shut up about how it's a masterpiece in the making! Popularity does not equal great literature. For one thing - and this is one of my biggest gripes - the characters are TOO one-dimensional. Dumbledore is way too perfect. He is trusting, believes in Harry when no one else will, was the only one who Voldemort was afraid of, blah blah blah. Boring! With JK Rowling's depiction of Dumbledore as so infallible, why not just change his name to Jesus and be done with it? Please...give the guy some depth! And then there's Harry. Poor, orphaned Harry, who just happens to be the youngest Seeker in a century! Not to mention he is put in the "best Hogwarts house," which has won the Interhouse Cup whatever each year he's been a member (he helped break Slytherin's winning streak!!!) Ugh. The whole poor orphan (equipped with a wicked "step" family) who just so happens to be insanely talented (or, in many female stories, beautiful) storyline has been done to DEATH. Cinderella, anyone? And the girls. There is so much sexism in the books, but it's mainly little, subtle things...so I don't think Rowling put it there on purpose...but please, how come it's only the female characters who lose their heads and scream whenever a crisis dawns, and the males are the only ones that keep their cool? Example: when Harry flies on his broom for the first time, Ron gives an "admiring whoop" and the girls just shriek in alarm. Excuse me while I go pay homage to the porcelain gods. The enemies are too one-dimensional, also. They are always beaten by the good guys, they are never very smart, they are shown only as evil, evil, not to mention strongly disliked and jealous, fools. I'm going to repeat what I said for Dumbledore: give the poor people some depth! Well...I know that my review borders mainly on character development, etc., but that was my biggest gripe with the books, and therefore is my focus. Now I just wait for the spiteful HP fans to start swooping in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could not put it down!!! If you claim to love reading at all, you cannot miss out on this book! What an amazing ride this book was. Even though it was a very thick book, I read it in less than 48 hours. Totally addictive! If I can only recommend one book for anyone to read, it would be this book. And if there's anyone out there who read this book and didn't enjoy it, I suggest reading the series from book 1 to 4 as if they're one book. Each book seemed to evolve amazingly into the next and somehow reflecting the mood of its protagonist. (The book is maturing as Harry gets older.) This book is no longer just for children at this point.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Good :) This was an amazing fourth novel in the Harry Potter books. But I found that the book increased in size by about 200 pages so it was kind of weird to read such a long book (in the series). Nevertheless, I found that the book was as captivating as ever, and it was really descriptive. I will one day support S.P.E.W (if it were to exist) (: 4.5/5

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! After a few Hogwarts adventures, J.K. Rowling refuses to be repetitive. This is a very fresh plot line with a very surprising twist at the end making this the most important installment yet. Even though parts were dry perhaps due to the size or slow activity, but it really immerses you more in our favorite wizarding series. Thank you J.K.!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Goblet of Fire This is the fourth book in the Harry Potter series. Harry returns to the wizard world after going to the Quidditch World Cup with Ron and Hermione. However, the celebrations are ruined by Death Eaters, and Harry learns that not all is well in the wizard world. As he returns to school, there is a competition that will be held throughout the world, involving highly dangerous tasks. Harry is too young to enter, but somehow, his name is drawn out of the goblet to be a contestant. With the help of his friends, Harry manages to stay alive (and even wins a few events), but soon, he realizes that whoever put his name in the goblet has a good reason for it: to kill him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling is the fourth and best book in the series so far. I was waiting to read about the Triwizard Cup and when it did finally come, it was extremely exciting. The characters from the other schools did not make up such a great part in the movie, but the novel was much more exciting and detailed. The pace was excellent and the words were well chosen. There were great plot twists when I least expected it and the characters were convincing. In this adventure Lord Voldemort and the Death Eaters play a larger part in the story. He is regaining his powers and is planning something great to restore his body. And, he is still after Harry Potter. The Triwizard Cup will take place, so students from two other schools will be competing. Watch the champions compete in three exciting tasks, which will surely keep the readers hooked. There’s also a new professor for Defence Against the Dark Arts, Mad-Eye Moody, who is an Auror. 5/5

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME (so far) I am reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of fire and I'm almost done. Someone put Harry's name in the goblet of fire and now he is a hogwarts champion in the triwizard tournament. So he has to complete three tasks to see if he is worthy enough to get the triwizard cup. But everybody is cheering for the other hogwarts champion untill the first task and there is a sad suprise at the end that none shall expect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The midway point in the magical adventure Here we are, halfway through the series. Another great story, although not one of my favourites. Harry's adventures with the Triwizard Cup were amazing, and kept me guessing what would happen the entire way. Filled with great plot twists and heartwarming moments, this is not a book to miss out on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really good The saga continues. There is a death, there is mystery and Harry shows alot of character in this book. Not my favorite novel in the series but the reader finds out more about the bad guy and now everyone knows that he who must not be named is back. The ending was pretty good. Even though I new Harry was going to live because there are several more books, his impending death felt real.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dragons and Mermaids to Jealousy and Romance Another amazing book from J.K. Rowling. I think this is the best Harry Potter book so far. Trials and Tests you couldn't even imagine. A fairy tale which seems to be real. You couldn't believe how imaginative J.K. Rowling is! When I first started Harry Potter I wasn't very intrested. When I read it over and over I was amazed. J.K. Rowling inspires me. All her work turns out to be a truly great story. You must read these books. This is the best book I've ever experienced reading. Flying on broomsticks, Voldemort, and a dancing Ball. I am amazed as always by J.K. Rowling. I'd like to meet her myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic The forth book in the Harry Potter Series. This book is full of mischief, truth, friendship, death and magic. Someone put Harry's name in the goblet of fire. The triwizard tournament is only for older wizards at school, but when Harry's name is drawn the whole school is flabbergasted. His life is now in danger, as he faced deadly challenges. At the end, he comes face to face with lord voldemort (he who must not be named). This is another great book my J.K. Rowling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible, amazing and any other word you can thi The Goblet of Fire was truly the best book I have ever read! I couldn't stop reading it. I'm reading the Order of the Phoenix and I only stopped reading it when it was time to eat breakfeast, lunch and dinner (and when I was writing this review). My favourite character is Harry because he has lots of adventures. The battles against he who must not be named are incredible and if I could rate this book out of 100 I would rate it 100.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb! Rowling does such a great job writing the Harry Potter novels. They always include some unexpected turns in the plot and keep you turning the pages. I definitely recommend the Harry Potter series. Understanding the Harry Potter novels is important so I would recommend reading them in order.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Jim Dale makes the audio experience worthwhile The fourth in the series about the young wizard who survived the assault of an evil wizard fourteen years ago, this is perhaps my second-favourite of the series so far (to me, it hit its best with the third, 'Prisoner of Azkaban'), and definitely the one where the characters grow up quite a bit: Hermione kisses Harry g'bye at the station, Ron and Hermione have their love/hate relationship in greater force (I love the scene where Ron realizes that Hermione is, indeed, a girl), and Harry starts to look at Cho and think something is wrong with his tummy. All very deftly crafted, these are young adults (inclusive of the temper tantrums and fallouts thereof). Ron even gets jealous of Harry's fame, which is a nice (and realistic) twist. I listened to this on an unabridged audio, read by Jim Dale, who gives all the characters a massive level of detail with his voices - and makes the story really come alive with his accent and tone and pacing. I now have them all on audio, and figure a long marathon of Harry might be in order the next time I head out on a long trip... After all, I have, uh... 50 hours just between books 1 to 4... Heh. Well enjoyed, and a great way to spend some 'down time' lying back and listening, as well as to-and-fro on the bus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sequel This one is the best book of the series to date, which is really saying something as first 3 were truly excellent. Rowling continues to weave a gripping tale that draws the reader in and keep them guessing. The length of the book makes it even more compelling for her adult readers, as it gives the author more freedom in her writing and plot development. This book is a fantastic read that should have a warning label for addictiveness. I wanted to read it again immediately after I was done.

Her writing makes even the worst readers enjoy reading. Harry Potter takes you on an amazing journey while you are still sitting in your seat. With Harry's best friends Ron and Hermoine, you watch their friendship grow until they are inseperable. I recommend this book to anyone because the way it is written makes you wish so badly that you could be there and actually see it. THIS BOOK IS ABSOLUTELY ONE OF MY FAVOURITES!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You Just CANT put it down! I've read the series over and over and over again at least 6 times, but the Goblet of Fire is a special one that I have read more times over then the entire series (at least 8 times) and I'm a slow reader, so you can imagine how many times I would have read this book if I was faster at reading, and if I didn't have to go to college ha ha! I have found no better author then JK Rowling and I truly am awed by her tallent, her brilliant mind at creating such an amazing world and truly real characters that give you the illusion that you are a part of the whole adventure, that you are right there next to Harry! I just don't know how to thank JK enough for giving us the Harry Potter books, and giving me the gift of enjoying to read books, which has opened me up to reading all sorts of other books (though none as great as her books).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not too shabby J. K. Rowling has once against surprised us with another excellent novel. She seems to have changed her mode for beginning the novel. Though the novels usually begin with Harry passing another miserable summer. This one began with Voldemort gaining more power. This novel was very suspenseful. The way Voldemort's secret servant was portrayed , I would never have given him a second thought. Though once I put all the clues together throughout the novel I was able to foreshadow what was going to happen. I recommend this novel to younger readers. I used to hate reading and it took me 1/2 a year to read the first novel. J. K. Rowling's novels have influenced me to pursue reading! Keep up the good work!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing Short of Magical This novel beats all of its predecessors lying down. It is well- developed and allows for more insight into the characters than ever before. Full of twists and turns, and a sad ending (I cried for at least five minutes), The Goblet of Fire is a spectacular novel, and the perfect set-up for the Order of the Phoenix . Read on!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Worth It Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is definitely a great book! To some it may seem rather long, but it’s well worth it – the fact that it’s longer just makes it better – more story to it! I certainly recommend reading the first three Harry Potter books first, though. Without reading at least ONE of them (the first, more likely) it would be quite hard to understand the characters and their previous storylines and histories, and the plot would be pretty confusing as well. Overall, it’s one of the greatest books I’ve ever read! If you’re a fan of Harry Potter books or movies, you should definitely read it! You’d be missing a lot! Borrow it or buy it - just read!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the Best JK Rowling is a fabulous author who really captures the readers attention. Like Tolkein, Rowling has brought a generation of readers, young and old. With all the description in the stories, I believe that's why I was so attached to the books. Rowling really captured the descriptive side of things that really makes someone feel as if they're really there, at Hogwarts. I, who didn't like reading stories of fantasy and magic, opened my eyes to the world of wizardry and was really attached to Harry's adventures. Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire is the best of Harry's adventures yet and I can't wait to read Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix very soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fight the good fight J.K. Rowling, who transformed a TV generation into book lovers, continues to create magic in her fourth novel, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Her series about a boy at odds with himself, his family and his entire world until he discovers that he is a magical wizard speaks volumes on what it means to feel like an outsider and at long last find love and acceptance. In Rowling’s earlier novels, Harry begins to understand his powers through a series of adventures that teach him to trust his friends, question authority and most importantly, believe in himself. This tale is as old as time, but Rowling stretches the moral play to a new elevation, as evidenced by the book’s dedication: “…to Susan Sladden, who helped Harry out of his cupboard.” Granted, Harry’s adoptive parents forced him to sleep in an old cupboard, but it is a rather simple step to take this meaning less literally. Nowadays, “Coming out of the closet” means more than an announcement of one’s sexuality – it refers

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reader Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is a truly inspirational tale of magic and mystery. J.K. Rowling has truly outdone herself. Never, in all my days, have I seen a book so well written and descriptive. She combines humor and wit to create a truly original and unsurpassable tale. Such genius hasn't been seen since J.R.R Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant, Simply Brilliant The Harry Potter Books Are Exellent. I have never read a better book. Sometimes after i read the books I even talk in a british accent. When you read about harry, it truly feels like you're at Hogwarts. I actually cried when I finished reading all the books because I had no more adventures to read about, But then I just read them all over again. And again, and finally again. I even tried to make a wand out of a coat hanger just to be like Harry! If you like to read, read The Harry Potter series. If you don't like to read, read the Harry potter series and you will love to read. J.K. Rowling is the best author in the world!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anxiously awaiting Book #5! After reading the first 3 books in this series, you just can't imagine it getting any better, and then it does. The Goblet of Fire is thrilling, exciting, scary and just plain fun. What an imagination J.K. Rowling has! She takes us on a wild ride right from a trip to the Quidditch World Cup with the Weasley family, to Harry's battles with dragons, monsters, and the terrifying Lord Voldemort in his quest to survive the Triwizard Tournament. Once I started reading the latest adventures of Harry, Ron and Hermione, I couldn't put the book down -- and my enthusiasm has even inspired my husband to read the series. When can we expect book #5?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adventures and Excitement of... Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is an amazing book that takes the reader into the life of the most famous person in the wizarding world. In his fourth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Harry Potter is thrown into his most thrilling and dangerous adventure yet, without having Quidditch to fall back on. Being prone to getting into trouble and danger, he finds himself competing in a competition that hasn't been done for half a century, mostly because there were too many deaths caused by it. He competes for the glory of winning the Triwizard Cup, or should we say the "Quad-wizard Cup". Having three tasks to complete, Harry realizes that there is something wrong when Teachers, Judges and even the Minister for Magic start giving him help with the tasks. What Harry doesn't know is that there is a murderer trying to get him. This book takes every reader into this exciting world of mystery where around every corner there lies danger, excitement and even Mrs. Norris. It's hard not to imagine everything that is happening while you read and wish you were there side by side with Harry, Ron and Hermione.

I was a reader that didn't like science fiction because being 12 years old I still got nightmares. this book is the 1 and only memory i have of my mother. I remember how we would take turns reading to each other. the details of the characters and the complex plot actually made us gasp, cry and laugh. now being such a fan of Ms. Rowlings I have started a Harry Potter fan club. This book inspired me to keep going even after my mother's death. So to Ms. Rowling I must say thank you oh so much for the memories. Adaire Clements-Anderson

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harry Potter, the best book ever I really enjoyed reading your book, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I think your book was amazing and I think lots of people would love your book. I also enjoyed reading your other Harry Potter books such as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, they were also amazing. I liked harry Potter in his book but I like the character Ron the most. Thank you for giving up your time to write these books and I can't wait until you release your fifth Harry Potter book. Your greatest fan, Jordan Veenstra

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Where can i enroll? I thaught that this book was overall a great book. The author did a great job. She dealt with very serious matters such as death, competition, friendship, trust and dating. She does great character descriptions, and really develops her characters. You get to see there many sides, which is very interesting. Imagination is the key to reading the book, you'll be wishing you were a witch/wizard at Hogwarts by the time you are finished. This book has everything, theres the good guys and the bad, suspense, then answers. You won't be able to put this book down, theres suprises everywhere. Read it, you won't regret it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harry Potter better than ever! J.K.Rowling has done it again! Harry Potter returns to amaze readers in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Book Four. How does Harry do it? I don't know! In Harry's fourth year at Hogwarts he seems to run into more surprises than ever! Surely this book is the best so far. Rowling is making sure everyone is entertained.Watch out for a lot of twists and turns whether its Voldermorts evil schemes, Professor Snapes constant interfering or Harry and his friends magical adventures. Whatever it is, its bound to capture all readers young or old. If you are a Harry Potter fan this book is a must!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Goblet of fire I have read and re-read this story so many times, but still I can be touched. The words leap of the page and you can imagine the faintest colour you can feel the sweetest smell fill your nose (even if you have a cold). The words are more then just words, they are a way of escapeing to a land where anything can happen. There are many ways of writing, one is to explain a thing plainly, another is to bring that thing into the text make its shape, its texture it very being an experience for the reader. J.K. Rowling has a gift to show a thing or person or even a place come to life, we all have the gift of relaiting a thing to a feeling, but we can't express it. J.K Rowling can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This book is really cool Harry Potter and the goblet of fire is a splended book ! It is cool, fun, and extremly interesting. At first I thought man, I don't want to read Harry Potter, but when I received Harry Potter and the philosiphers stone, out of respect i started reading it and literitly could not take my eyes of it! Anyway I think the Harry Potter collection will always be the best book in the world. Thanks Mrs.Rowling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from monsterous fun Harry awakes one night during his summer vacation with his scar burning. Combining this with a strange dream, Harry begins to wonder if danger is approaching. But Harry doesn't have time to worry long. He soon gets an invitation from his best-friend Ron Weasley to the Quidditch World Cup. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire also sees Harry attending his fourth year of wizard-school at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. While it's the usual fun with Ron, Hermione Granger and some less-than-inspiring Divination lessons, Harry's life is never boring. There is plenty of mystery, adventure and danger coming his way. Love is also rumoured to be in the air, with near-disastrous results!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Buy it in hardcover The saga of the disheveled adolescent Harry Potter continues in this exciting tale of mythical creatures and magical lore. Apart from the fact that it had to end, the only down part of the book was the death of one of its most beloved characters. It was so well written that I actually found myself with tears in my eyes, grieving for the fictional character Rawlings had created. Truly, this series is going to go down as a classic, much as "The Narnia Tales", and "The Lord of the Rings". Buy it in hard cover, your children and grandchildren will love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harry Potter Have you read the first three Harry Potter books? If you liked them, you got to read "The Goblet of Fire". It is even better and more interesting than the first three books in the series. You have to buy it, as it is never in the library. I am going to keep my copy and give it to my children in 20 years, when I have them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's the Best! When I was reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, I was both excited and sad. I was excited because of the adventures and the tension developing in the story and I was also sad because I knew that this is the last Harry Potter book I am going to read in awhile. I did not want to wait for the next book! I would not have anything to look forward to reading when I am finished. I didn't want to put the book down since it is so hard to put the book down. The story is really interesting and worth reading for!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not for young children I have read all of the Harry Potter Books that are now on the market. I enjoyed them all. Along with this one. Although I do not think that it is suitable for young children because of the content in the ending this "dark lord" was frightening and the images of the pain inflicted upon one of the characters made me a little uncomfortable and I don't think that it would be appropriate. DO not let this stop you from reading the book however if that stuff doesn't bother you. The rest of the book is very interesting and exciting, it's just the end that kind of brings up the age the reader should be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I am 32 yrs old and I loved this book. I have read all the Harry Potter books but this one kept me reading until the spine-tingling, suspense-filled end. I can't wait for the next one to come out. You do not have to be a kid to enjoy these stories!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire This book is beyond excellent. You will want to read it for hours. The writing is fabulous. You are captured in the book. You hear nothing but the sounds of Hogwarts. This book has every detail, from sounds to looks. While you are reading you will imagine you are standing there right infront of them but they can't see or hear you. This book is one of the top books I've ever read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great book I finally got Harry Potter 4. I loved it. It was just as good as the others. So much action and suspense. The Triwizard Tournament was cool. Rita Skeeter was funny and annoying. I liked the first chapter. Even though when I first read the book, I had no idea what that had to do with the story.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It Can't Be Over Yet I am fifteen years old and I thought this book was awsome! I can't wait for the next one to come out. I have read such books as The Lord of the Rings and The Chronicals of Narnia. Harry Potter is right up there with them(mabey not quite to par with The Lord of the Rings)The only reason I didn't give it five stars was it only had one thing going un at once. I like complicated plots that get all intertwined. Buy hey it was written for younger kids so why am I complaining. If you thought about reading Harry Potter but decided it was to young for you read it anyways you'll be surprised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire I thought that this book was simply amazing. I have read and own all four of the Harry Potter books. J.K. Rowling deserved all the awards she won for the Harry Potter series. Each book was so interesting, I could not put them down once I started to read them. I found them to be extremely action packed. There was never a dull moment in any of the books. The reason I find the books to be so interesting, is because they are not about regular every day life. When I read Harry Potter, it is a way for me to escape reality and let my imagination whisk me away to a far off place. My closing remarks are I LOVE THE HARRY POTTER BOOKS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WHOA!! How do I start?? I have read literally hundreds and hundreds of books... I LOVE books and before, it was hard for me to pick which book what my favourite. Then, I read this Harry Potter book. How do I describe this book? It combines humour with adventure with suspense. Once you start, you simply CAN'T put this book down.... it has you reading till the last page (and that's saying a LOT, considering that there's over 600 pages, in the version that I read)! Harry, Hermione and Ron are still funny, sneaky and lots of fun to read about, but there's new people in this book, too. This book is OBVIOUSLY the best book, because whether you're 6 years old or 60 years, you WILL enjoy this novel. I assure you that in the end, this book will become your favourite, like it did for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Harry Potter and the goblet of fire I think this book deserves a four out of five, because it had everything action, humor, dark times, passion, mystery and was very exhilarating, it has everything that makes a good book. The story starts off at a place called the Riddle house, then moves inside the house (which that part is interesting because you get a lot of resoure there)The best part I think is when Harry's wand and Voldermort's wand have a line between them, and his parent's and Cedric Diggory's faces appear and come into Harry's wand. This book was very good, you can't put it down, kids my age would agree,because they are always begging to read just one more chapter before their bed time. These books get bought like teletubbies, gameboys and pokemon and are almost rare to be able to find one and buy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Harry Potter Rocks!" When I first heard about young Harry Potter, I thought, 'Sounds dumb!'. Then, I actually picked up one of JK Rowling's books, and i was like "Dude, sweet!" Harry Potter rocks. In his fourth year at Hogwarts, he's getting in trouble, especially for the Tri-Wizard Cup! Nobody knows how he ended up a winner, in a postion many wouldv'e given their right arm for. And that's not all, he's under-age! So he ends up on a magical journey (well, more magical than the one he's on already!) trying to well, WIN. Who wouldn't? He and Cedric Diggory fight vigorously for the big WIN. And, guess what else? Harry won! So, he Ron Weasley and of course, Hermione Granger totally, like CELEBRATE!

About the Author

J. K. (Joanne Kathleen) Rowling was born in Gloucestershire, U. K. on July 31, 1965. Rowling attended Tutshill Primary and then went on to Wyedean Comprehensive where she was made Head Girl in her final year. She received a degree in French from Exeter University. She later took some teaching classes at Moray House Teacher Training College and a teacher-training course in Manchester, England. This extensive education created a perfect foundation to spark the Harry Potter series that Rowling is renowned for. After college, Rowling moved to London to work for Amnesty International, where she researched human rights abuses in Francophone Africa, and worked as a bilingual secretary. In 1992, Rowling quit office work to move to Portugal and teach English as a Second Language. There she met and married her husband, a Portuguese TV journalist. But the marriage dissolved soon after the birth of their daughter. It was after her stint teaching in Portugal that Rowling began to write the premise for Harry Potter. She returned to Britain and settled in Edinburgh to be near her sister, and attempted to at least finish her book, before looking for another teaching job. Rowling was working as a French teacher when her book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was published in June of 1997 and was an overnight sensation. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone won the British Book Awards Children's Book of the Year, was shortlisted for the Guardian Fiction Award, and received a Commend
