Hardcover | July 8, 2000

about

The summer holidays are dragging on and Harry Potter can't wait for the start of the school year. It is his fourth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and there are spells to be learned, potions to be brewed and Divination lessons (sigh) to be attended. Harry is expecting these; however, other quite unexpected events are already on the march ..."The saga of Harry Potter and his creator has almost reached the status of myth ... The books strike as deeply as the most timeless fairy tales. Harry and his friends seem intensely real-parents report a frequent refrain of 'they're just like us.'" -Maclean's"A richly imagined world to which young readers will surrender themselves, and one of the most attractive heroes to come around in a long while." -Globe and Mail"Harry Potter is the biggest phenomenon in kids' publishing for decades ... Rowling has taken a classic formula and given it a contemporary (but not too contemporary) twist, where the hero crosses the boundary from the day-to-day mundanity to a world of magic and wonder." -Vancouver SunMore than five million Harry Potter books sold in Canada
J. K. Rowling envisions seven books in the Harry Potter series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! The darkest and menacing Potter book yet. Loved it!
Date published: 2019-02-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I couldn't hold off any longer to continue my reread of the series, as the fourth illustrated edition would be published later than expected. I think this book and the next two are the ones where I've forgotten the most about them. Probably due to the fact that the first three are so short and I've seen the movies of seven, part 1 and 2, so often on tv. Observations as usual: - It's astounding how much detail and foreshadowing and clues Rowling leaves along the way, both for the standalone story and for the series as a whole. I'm constantly amazed - I mentioned before in my review of the first book that Dumbedore comes across as much more quirky in the books than the movies, and reading more about him, he really has a real range of emotions that the movies don't quite capture - And now for your update about the progression of Ron and Hermione. Romantic feelings are starting to become a thing for these teenagers and it's hilarious to watch them from the outside. Ron in shock about Hermione and Krum, and Hermione's constant dark looks at Fleur's interactions with Ron (and the other boys). I would have loved to see them interact romantically earlier on in the series but then again, this slow burn friends-to-lovers trope is great - Suddenly, the Golden Trio are now teenagers and godddd do they act like it. The fight between Harry and Ron (whose feelings I totally understand btw) could have been resolved with some proper communication. Hermione and Ron's bickering about (mostly) silly things boils down them talking to other people when they really want talk to each other - Sweet boy Cedric ughhhh - I completely forgot Ludo Bagman was a character - Pretty amazing how (view spoiler) was a great teacher to the kids when he was there for more nefarious reasons. Cause like... he taught them a lot and spoke to them frankly but in a way they understand. It's tough to think that if he wasn't so bad what he could have been like in the long run I see rereads of the rest of the series happening very soon, illustrated editions or not. This was the perfect book to close out the year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Midway Point Goblet of Fire gives us a look at a young boy's life where he starts to be on his way to becoming a man. While retaining the comedic timing and keen dialogue of the previous three books, Goblet of Fire has a tangibly darker edge to it that keeps the story pressing forward throughout the book at a good pace. As each major setpiece escalates in danger and depraved imagination, the story throws more and more twists and turns at you, with smaller mysteries building upon the bigger ones. This change in tone and overall direction also reflects the development of Harry as a character, and serves as another great addition to his coming-of-age tale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My HP Fave If I had to choose a favourite, it would be this one. I love good chemistry, and this is when the gang starts being introduced to their romantic sides (sort of. It's quite brief). It is so full of action and cool obstacles, as well as grief.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun I enjoyed reading every book in this series, but because this one has a tournament taking place, there's something fun as we're always anticipating the next event.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goblet of Fire So this was my first time reading this novel. I believed that this movie was my favourite out of all of them; however I haven't watched them in years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING This is the one book in the series that I love to compare to the movies just because I find the movies did such a good job at capturing the complexity and splendor of the goblet of fire challenges.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from And things turn dark This is the pivotal book in the Harry Potter Series. The characters ar forced to grow up quickly, and deal with situations no adult would want to handle, let alone 14 year olds. The tone of this book is dark, ominous, and terrifying, setting the reader on edge, and worrying for the forces of good, versus evil. I still experience fear for the main characters when rereading this book, despite knowing what is to happen. 11/10 for excellent writing, and demonstrating believable and relatable character development.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality, Quality, Quality The books keep getting bigger, but the quality remains. I was worried that the size of the book may take away from the quality, but if anything, it adds to it! Rowling had free-range on this chapter and she totally delivers. Book 4 takes on a more adventurous story and I thought it was brilliant. I honestly cannot think of a single bad thing from any of the Potter books this far. Bloody brilliant!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favourite in the series I love the new characters, can I just say Fleur is one of my favourite Harry Potter characters in the series, I just love her. This book I felt was where Harry's life changed and it was only going to get darker and more serious for here.And I liked that transition, and it was done in such a sad but wonderful way. But it still had its funny and light hearten moments, like how now the trio are teenagers and so different interest and changes to their personalities start to surface with them, which I find funny.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What Next? The fourth installment to the series that keeps on giving is excellent. I definitely enjoyed the book and had a lot of fun reading it. This book also takes a darker approach towards the latter half of the story which is really exciting! I’m also really excited for what comes next – in other words, expect the unexpected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Turning Point in the Series I thought this book marked the turning point in the series. Up until this, it was a very typical children's fantasy series. After this, it got darker. I liked this change. In a lot of series (for children or adults), the characters don't grow, no matter what they experience. Here, you see the characters actually develop through the events they experience.

If you haven't already make sure to read the other three books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More book, more magic! Don't let the size of the book frighten you off. Though it is longer than any of the previous novels in the series, it doesn't lag. As a reader who always bemoaned how quick the first novels were to finish, I was pleased at the increased length. The addition of many more characters, new schools and new challenges keep the read interesting. As Harry and his friends gets older and more complex, so do their problems, which is why this series is enjoyed by so many. Although it can be enjoyed at any age (I continue to re-read over a decade later), I recommend kids and pre-teens are the ideal age for this series.

I can't say any more than this because I feel as though I would ruin the entire story. I will however say that I haven't loved Snape's role in any other story as much as I have in this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second Fave This is definitely my second favourite book in the series (my favourite being the 3rd). You can sense the shift with this book as it becomes more dark. The characters are starting to grow up and this is definitely reflected in the plot of this book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exciting I remember when this book came out and all of the media attention it got -- criticisms about it's length and a death, saying that kids would never read something this long and death would be too much for them to handle. Thankfully, those predictions didn't come true. Despite this, I have to say that The Goblet of Fire is probably my least favourite of the series. I still liked it, but found that it dragged for me a bit in the middle. However, the ending had me back to turning pages as fast as I could. I love how Rolling explores different themes in multiple ways in each book. Slavery is clearly one of the dominating themes of this one. First there is Hermione trying to stop the indentured servitude of the house elves, then there is the introduction of the Imperious Curse, which basically enslaves its victim. This book shows Harry, Ron, and Hermione growing up and becoming teenagers, showing how moody and angsty they can be. There are squabbles, but friendship reins in the end -- which is also another common theme to this series. The Goblet of Fire is also full of adventure, dragons, mermaids, and mortal peril. What else could a reader want?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magical The Goblet of Fire and The Order of the Phoenix are the two largest books in the series and worth reading. They are different from the movies due to editing. The books explain so much more than the movies do and are very enjoyable to read. They might seem tedious if you have watched the movies first before reading the novels. However, the extra characters and little details are worth the read. I received the box set for Christmas 2016 and am currently re-reading the series. I'm still surprised about all the extra stuff in the books that aren't mentioned in the movies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This book obliterated my learning disability with reading I'm going to be very honest so you can laugh all you like. When I was growing up, reading was extremely difficult for me. I was painfully slow. It would take me hours to get through a single chapter of a paperback novel. For example, it took me the good part of a year to get through a 200 page yearling book, even at at 13. I was completely unable to get through reading material in high school and chose book reports based on which audio books I could find at the library in town. After seeing the first Harry Potter movie, I wanted to know what happened next finished the second book in the nick of time to see the second movie and likewise with the third book. I didn't read more than a page or so of any of my first year college text books and got through the entire first year by making flash cards out of the terms from the glossary of each of them. God only knows how I passed. It wasn't until I got this book in the series, and I can pretty much tell you that it was in the scene with the maze. It was like something in my brain just snapped on and I was able to read like a normal person and I soared through the book! Then I got the 5'th one and finished it in 2 weeks! After that I was able to read all my text books cover to cover, went on to University and got A's in all the courses. I honestly don't think I would be able to accomplish any of the things I have and am yet to accomplish if it weren't for this book...and that's above and beyond the fact that I am now able to enjoy reading and disappear into a novel in a way I never was able to before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much better than the movie! This book was amazing. I hope no one judges J.K. Rowling by the movies, because the story was almost unrecognizable. If I had read the book before I saw the movie I imagine I would have been very upset. This is up there with Eragon for worst adaptations I have seen. There were so many little questions left open, and so many little things I didn't understand after watching Goblet of Fire. I wasn't sure if I just didn't understand, because I admit I am not the sharpest tool in the shed. But after reading this book I know it was not me, and certainly not J.K. Rowling, but the people who adapted it to film. Everything made sense and came together in the end. If you ever found the Harry Potter movies interesting but somewhat incomplete, definitely give the books a shot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Continuing the story in style! Spoilers present. After the first three lovely books in the series, book four comes in with quite a twist. As is to be expected, the plot is deeper, darker and more intense than the books before it. Harry is growing up, and his increasing maturity is reflected in the darker theme of the book. And several new features are present. Firstly, the Quidditch World Cup is taking place, and when Harry goes to see the final game something unexpected happens. Secondly, the Triwizard Tournament is being held at Hogwarts, cancelling Quidditch for the year and bringing two more wizarding schools to Hogwarts. A teacher with a connection to Harry's past is present, muggles are being murdered, as is the Riddle family's caretaker, and romance and jealousy are in the air.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best Having read the entire harry potter series, I have to say that this was by far my favourite book to read! Its story line is very fitting to its genre and the deviations it has from the movie make it a fantastic page turner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favourite book in the series I thoroughly enjoyed reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I like how J.K. Rowling introduces an interesting set of new characters each book, such as Cedric Diggory, Rita Skeeter, Victor Krum, and Barty Crouch in this one. I love how the story is so complex and has so many layers with all these different subplots to the main plot of the Triwizard Tournament, like Hermione's relentless fight for human rights for house elves. The cover of this new addition is also very nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A masterpiece The plot thickens, the story gets darker, the kids grow up, and we're introduced to a whole new facet of the wizarding world. A serious page-turner and a real game-changer. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The plot thickens! This is when the story begins to get darker. I would recommend saving this one until kids are a little bit older as the plot becomes much more intense. This is a major book in the series so hang onto your hats!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Cup is here The Goblet of Fire is the book where so much got changed compared to the film adaptation that reading it feels like its own thing. The maze finale to the motivation and backstory on Barty Crouch Jr are much more realized here. Plus the subplot with the house elves is unique to the novel. There's also much more Sirius and is the turning point for the series as it's a lot darker from this book on. #staffreviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always As always Harry Potter is a magnificent series! However, I did find some lag in this book with Ron's sulking, and Hermione's new interest in house elf rights. However, still an amazing book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Edge of the seat action! This book really took the series to the next level! It's realer, darker, bolder! It's nice to see that J.K.Rowling doesn't shy away from these aspects even though the books cater to younger readers as well!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire I'm not sure if I was just ready for a change after reading the first 3 Harry Potter books consecutively, but I found the Goblet of Fire slow and not all that exciting, that is until the last task hit Harry. The pace really picked up after that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from HP4 I really enjoyed this book. The first time I read it (9 years ago), I didn't enjoy it and I found it to be slow. I still didn't absolutely love it because there is something about the general atmosphere of the book that I found a bit off-putting. It's hard to describe. Nevertheless, the book is great and I picked up on so many different things in the reread. The world and story that Rowling created is beyond incredible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goblet of Fire Loved the whole tournement idea for the book. I just hated that the other 2 schools were only boys and only girls (and it was said they were mostly all some kind of beautiful fae or fairy) respectively. There should of been at least one more mixed school to show where other girls and boys go to school to learn magic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Series of All Time This series has been in my life since I was 10-years old and it will forever be the greatest thing that has ever happened to me.

Every child/teenager/adult needs to read this series because I'm sure they will fall in love with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great!! This is sort of different when compared to the rest of the series. I love this book because for the first time at Hogwarts there is no Quidditch. At first I wasn't very interested in that idea seeing as how Quidditch is such an important part in Harry's life while at Hogwarts; but then enters the Triwizard Tournament. Very intriguing and you won't see the ending coming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome The movie really does not do this novel justice. It is well written and way more in depth than the movie makes out the plot structure. Read the other novels first. But this one, even now after I have ready the rest of HP's journey to rid the world of Voldemort, remains one of my absolute favourites.

From Our Editors

Junior Booklovers Contest Winner Aaron, age 11, Surrey, BCHarry Potter and The Goblet of Fire is a thrilling and suspense-filled story that readers all over the world will enjoy. Harry Potter is an exciting gateway to an enchanted world of magic and curses, truth and lies, joy and sadness. All of this is woven into a plot so realistic that it seems you are there, with Harry, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley. Harry is back at school again for his fourth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and surprises are in store for him. This fourth book by J. K. Rowling takes the whole series to a new level of suspense and excitement. While the basic plot remains the same - Voldemort sets a trap to get Harry into his grasp to try and kill him and finish the job he started years ago - the twists and turns in this 636 page book will have you so engrossed in the plot that you will probably lose track of time. I highly recommend this book if you are an avid reader, because although J. K. Rowling has doubled the size of this book compared to the preceding ones, she has managed to capture the attention of her fans and keep it, from cover to cover.These books do not need to be sold to the reader as they are a part of a cult that seems to have gained a momentum of its own. One can safely bet that this book, like its predecessors, will be made into a movie. I do recommend, however, that you read the book before going to see the movie, as contrary to popular belief, words are worth a thousand pictures!!------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The hype surrounding the release of the fourth Harry Potter adventure was unprecedented in the world of children's literature -- can the book itself live up to it? It depends what you were expecting, and in the end, it's still just a story. But like the three that preceded it, this is a well-crafted and wonderfully imaginative story of action, adventure and intrigue -- it builds on the events of Philosopher's Stone, Chamber of Secrets and Prisoner of Azkaban and shows that Rowling is proud of the world she's created. Rightfully so.The first sign that this book is going to be somewhat different comes early -- instead of the familiar opening showing Harry trying to survive the summer at the Dursley's, the first portentous chapter shows the dark wizard Voldemort strengthening, preparing for his return to power. After that ominous beginning, the narrative returns to familiar patterns -- Harry's miserable vacation with his Muggle relatives is improved by a hilarious visit from the Weasleys and a trip to the Quidditch World Cup. The scenes at this magical sporting event are marvelously inventive -- thousands of wizards try to keep a low profile among the Muggles as they arrive en masse to camp near a bewitched stadium invisible to non-magic eyes.When Harry, Ron and Hermione finally arrive at Hogwarts, it becomes clear that the school year will run differently, too. Students from two other European wizard academies -- Durmstrang, a thinly-veiled Eastern European school filled with swarthy types, and Beauxbatons, the snooty French school whose students wear silk robes and disdain the "'eavy 'Ogwarts food" -- will be staying at the castle to participate in a long-abandoned inter-school magic competition. Rowling introduces several compelling new characters -- the Bulgarian Quidditch hero Viktor Krum, the muckraking witch journalist Rita Skeeter and of course, the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, Mad-Eye Moody, a scarred and paranoid veteran of the Auror's squad, the magical world's combination FBI/SWAT team. The themes and events of the book are darker, and more mature, but then Harry and the gang are 14 now. So there are crushes and jealousies, that first wonderful and horrible school dance, and further revelations from the past that both clarify and complicate the battle between good and evil. The plot is more complex, with some unthinkable twists and turns that the magical milieu makes possible and enjoyable. There are some genuine surprises, more dangerous and violent challenges and, as predicted, a death. But however fantastic the events become, the reader never ceases to care deeply what happens to Harry, Ron, Hermione and the others. That is Rowling's genius -- crafting characters so multi-layered and plausible, that, magic or no, we can believe they are real. Ages 9 and up.

Employee Review

A wild ride from start to finish, at 636 pages, this book is not long enough! Rowling takes us on a trip through Harry and friends' jam-packed fourth year at Hogwart's. Fans of the previous three books will adore this one. Rowling retains both her freshness and ease of storytelling, gives us more insight into all of our favourite characters, as well as more background and history of Hogwart's and the magical world. I can't wait for book number five.
