Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Harry Potter, #4)

Harry Potter is midway through both his training as a wizard and his coming of age. Harry wants to get away from the pernicious Dursleys and go to the International Quidditch Cup with Hermione, Ron, and the Weasleys. He wants to dream about Cho Chang, his crush (and maybe do more than dream). He wants to find out about the mysterious event that supposed to take place at Hogwarts this year, an event involving two other rival schools of magic, and ...

    Don't mind me, just crying my eyes out. This was WAY better than I remember it being, and I remember it being pretty darn good. J.K. Rowling is a writing goddess and I can't believe how much foresight and planning went into this series. She already hints at the horcruxes and many other things in this book that don't show up until much later. Definitely one of my favorites in the series (but I say that about all of them)!

    *To read more reviews by me visit Views & Reviews *I seriously have no idea why I still review these books when I have nothing new to say. I mean... J.K. Rowling is perfect.

    This was the beginning of my addiction to POTter. I had previously experimented with and enjoyed POTter on 3 different occasions, but could easily have walked away and never touched the stuff again. Then, under some pressure from some POTterHEAD peers of mine, I tried the newest blend called the Goblet...and everything changed. As the warm, easy, potato chip prose crossed my blood-brain barrier, euphoria ensued. My inner child was smitten. I...wa...

    Re-Read in December 2014 for Harry Christmas To You SO I HAVE A FEW NOTES ON THIS ONE:-at the beginning, Voldemort says to Wormtail, "I will allow you to perform an essential task for me, one that many of my followers would give their right hands to perform..." OMG J.K. ROWLING FORESHADOWS EVERYTHINGGGG-when the Weasley men come to Privet Drive through the Dursleys' fireplace is just.... priceless. Yet ANOTHER scene that I wish had made it into t...

    Best one so far! "Remember, if the time should come when you have to make a choice between what is right and what is easy, remember what happened to the boy who was good, was kind, and brave, because he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort. Remember Cedric Diggory."

    “Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.”There are so many chapters and characters and details that make this book special. Here are some of my favourites:1. S.P.E.W.2. Hermione in every scene ever3. The house elves and the kitchen scenes (I'm honestly so in love with the kitchens. Every time they tickle the pear in the portrait I get all excited)4. Durmstrang and Beauxbatons5. T...

    Normally, I congratulate myself for finishing a 500 + page novel but after reading 734 pages of this book, my only reaction was “How could it already be over?”The more I read Harry Potter, the harder I fall in love with J.K. Rowling. I couldn’t grasp how she could make this most fantastic series with the most complex and most expertly planned out plot, you could tell she was so sure of the story the moment she started writing the first book...

    Death had always been a major theme of these books, but Goblet of Fire was really the turning point of the whole series. Not only did Voldemort return, but we found out that the Wizarding World is much larger, and (view spoiler)[ Cedric is killed (hide spoiler)].The characters become more real yet are still stuck in flux between child and adult, which is apropos seeing as how this book is literally in the middle of the series.

    I'm apparently the crankiest person on earth, because this was my least favorite Potter book yet. (AZKABAN being my favorite!) It's mostly because:1. There is too much tournamenting for my taste. 2. I hate the house elves. :O3. The word "quietly" is egregiously overused. It loses its effectiveness because it appears so often.4. There are moments when Harry and Ron behave like stereotypical stupid boys (I know, I know, they're 14...doesn't mean I ...

    Reread in December 2015 for #HarryXmasToYouSeriously so many things I forgot because it's so different from book to movie! It's so good still though. I loved Dobby in this book.Reread in December 2014 for #HarryXmasToYouAgain, so great. Lots of things I forgot! Like Ludo Bagman as a character, the Weasley's coming to be Harry's family for the third task, and just how things actually happen in the book since it varies in the movie. Things start to...

    “It is my belief... that the truth is generally preferable to lies.” Re-read - Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire steps up from the previous ones very well, it's the darkest book I've ever read since Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Who knows ? Harry Potter grows up and becomes a boy who has to take the responsibility on his shoulders, he never wants to be selected, he never wants glory and prestige, yet the world turns against him any...

    This is at least the 10th time I have read Harry Potter. I feel like I am doing a disservice writing a review of this book. That being said, I usually reread the entire series around this time of year when I am waiting for spring to start. It is like revisiting an old friend and brings a warm feeling to my heart. In my last review, I equated reading Potter to warm apple pie with vanilla ice cream on top, basically the ultimate comfort read. My fa...

    Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was my most anticipated read of the series… It’s my favorite movie (I KNOW I KNOW- the books are SO MUCH BETTER) and it’s where the books really start to get intense. Even though there was a part that brought tears to my eyes, its not as sad as whats yet to come… I feel like this book is the book of transitioning for Harry, Ron and Hermione. This is the last book of their childhood. If the movies follow...

    I've read this series more times than I can even remember. But every time it feels like the first time all over again. There's always certain details that I forget between my re-reads and movie watching and it's great to revisit and remember why this is one of my favorites of the series. I loved how much foreshadowing is in it and knowing what's coming, certain parts just break my heart. I decided to do the audio book by Jim Dale for the first ti...

    REVIEW TO COME ON SATURDAY ^^4.8 Stars " Lord Voldemort's gift for spreading discord and enmity is very great. We can fight it only by showing an equally strong bond of friendship and trust, Differences of habit and languages are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.

    FINALLY ready to get back to this. I actually listened to the first 150ish pages last weekend when I was on the road, and I didn't kneel over. Of course, Snape's not been mentioned yet, so we'll see . . . *crosses fingers*

    Now THAT'S a book! The groove that J.K. Rowling starts to find in HP 3 is fully realized in 4. Partly it's that the kids (and therefore the readers) are getting older so she can delve into more adult, complex themes and situations, and partly it's that I think she's really finding her voice. We finally got our very own HP's, I am happy to report, and it's so funny to look at them all side by side b/c of the HUGE leap in size between 3 and 4. Then...

    This book was so much darker and sadder than I remembered - the crazy thing is, Goblet of Fire was always my least favorite as a kid because between the Qudditch World Cup and the Twiwizard Tournament, I just associated it with being the "sports one". But this book has SO MUCH GOING ON and it made me feel way more feels than I remembered, and it all really hit me in ways I hadnt expected. I'm so glad Harry has Molly Weasley, and Hagrid, and so ma...

    Como todo el mundo me advirtió este libro estuvo más oscuro y la historia se complicó bastante. Ame leer como empieza la adolescencia de los personajes, los celos de cada uno en determinadas situaciones y la forma en que afrontaban estas situaciones.Amando profundamente la historia y a todos sus personajes, leerlos crecer ha sido maravilloso Reseña Completa: http://bastvilard.blogspot.com/2015/0...

    Harry Potter changed my life. If I hadn’t read Harry Potter when I did I would not be the same person today. What I am today, in a part is due to Harry. I cannot really say enough to make you understand how much Harry Potter means to me.

    Here be warned: This review contains cursing. Greetings, loved ones, and let us talk of a young witch named Hermione Granger.Hermione is, and always has been, a delight to read. Not necessarily because she's a girl, but because she is the only character amongst those 14 year olds who actually has a good head on her shoulders. When I was young and gullible, I hated this book. Hated how it killed off Cedric and how bloody the series got afterwards....

    Harry Potter's fourth year at Hogwarts. His enemies still want to kill him (what else is new?) and this time they use a very elaborate scheme to do just that. Poor Boy Who Lived have to fight ever more difficult challenges on the top of his ever more difficult classes.In case somebody still did not get a clue that the series left children book territory in the end of the previous book, this one begins with a chapter seemingly taken straight from ...
