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 six million Harry Potter books have sold in Canada.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow The Goblet of Fire is a testament to JK Rowling's strong writing. Loved this book as well, and I know it is a favourite in the series for many. This book is a little darker than the previous ones, especially the first two. The wizarding world is just that much more dangerous for Harry. A gripping read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The more pages, the more to explore... The longest book of the Harry Potter series paves the pivotal moment of the entire story - the return of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. The book is such an amazing work by Rowling and shows our favourite characters begin to change as they age. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Growth IF the first three HP books are the Hobbit, here we enter the world of LOTR - same characters/world, with a more sophisticated plot, hence much longer. She also enters social satire and criticism with this text, again, reflected the growth, change and maturity of her audience. Not only were her teens growing up, but so many adults were reading at this point that she's almost indirectly writing for them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My least favourite book in the whole series. It's still a classic Harry Potter book, I still like it, but I wasn't really a fan of this one. This is the turning point--from here on in, the series gets significantly darker than the first three books.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun but the cracks are starting These is a lot I love about this book, the tournament itself is a wonderful idea, and the expansion of the magic world by seeing other schools of magic adds a new excitement. On the down side Hermione's campaign to free elves falls flat and is the start of Rowling not listening to an editor who would tell her "Your message that - some slaves WANT to be slaves and don't try to free them" is a pretty negative one". An editor might also tell her, Harry is pretty unheroic in the way he is given the solution to a lot of the tournament problems and a better hero would have figured things out on his own. That seems to be a bit of a problem throughout the rest of the books - Harry is not a hero and is swept along by events. Hermione actually becomes more of the hero. This was the last of the Potter books I truly enjoyed. the rest I started reading because "I want to get to the end".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A freaking tournament for wizards! A wizard tournament. That is probably one of the best hooks in literature ever. Add to that the quality of Rowling's writing and plot and you have something that is bound to succeed. The third book (Azkaban) assured that I was bound to the series, and this book only built on that. A great entry and with complex and interweaving threads that all come together for a great pay off.

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 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 Luved it Number four in the saga of harry potter wuz great! Although i still perfer the first book (personal choice). Goblet of fire is still up with close to the first. I think it wuz great because the descrìption and suspense lured u in! I wuz kinda bummed out when the movie came out cuz it wuz nothing like the book. Sure, the special effects where awsome but it doesnt compare to the book. -Ana

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 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 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?

The fourth book is truly the best because I've read the books for almost three years now and every time i read number four the goblet of fire i shake because it is so exciting. When is Book number 5 coming? They are the best!

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 &quot;Quad-wizard Cup&quot;. 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.

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!

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.

Editorial Reviews

"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 Sun)
