This is my favorite book of the Harry Potter series. The story is very absorbing, and I like the addition of many new characters in the book. Rowling gives us a glimpse further into the world of wizardry with the integration of the other magic schools. In my opinion, a very interesting read, with many twists and turns not seen in any of the Harry Potter books earlier in the series. I can read it over and over again and not get tired of it. I love it!

Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling is about a young wizard tryin to complete his training at Hogwarts School, of witchcraft and wizardry. After seeing the movie and reading the book I noticed that J.K. Rowling and the director had different interpretations on some of the ways the story went. Harry Potter is midway through both his training as a wizard and his coming of age. Harry wants to leave the Dursleys home, to venture to be part of the famous Quidditch World Cup with his friends Ron and Hermione. He attends, but something strange happens at the World Cup. Will Harry overcome this? After his adventure Harry returns to Hogwarts to find out that the famous Tri-Wizard Tournament is held at Hogwarts. During the Tournament Harry a young 4th year student must overcome certain obstacles like learning new spells, dealing with people such as Malfoy, and asking his crush to the dance before anyone else does. Harry faces many problems in this latest adventure. like learning new spells and dealing with a persistent. Harry Potter would like to have a normal 14 year old life, but can not due to his lifestyle of being a wizard and all the adventures he has during his years at Hogwarts.

I cannot give enough praise to do this series justice. So, here is how I have summed it up: Harry Potter makes my world a better place. This series will become a classic that will transcend time. And to J.K. Rowling: You are brilliant and do not just write young adult books - you write with true literary flair & you create characters that grow close to your heart. THANK YOU!

Even though a lot of the book was centered around Quidditch, I liked this book a lot. As always, the HP books catch my attention at the very beginning. This book was awesome =)

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is a fantasy novel written by J. K. Rowling. This an outstanding and extraordinary book due to its major plot twists and vividly described characters. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire takes place in London, England, at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, during modern times. Harry Potter, the protagonist, was suspiciously elected to take part in the Triwizard Tournament: an event so dangerous that it did not take place for almost 100 years. Despite his young age and lack of experience, Harry must do three treacherous tasks with three other wizards while staying alive. Harry, at first, attends the Quidditch World Cup with his friends Ron and Hermione. However, the Dark Mark appears in the sky, signifying that Voldemort, the Dark Lord, is out there, and most likely wanting to kill Harry. At Hogwarts, Harry's name was purposely put into the Goblet of Fire with dark intent, making it mandatory that he takes part in the Triwizard Tournament. Ron does not approve of this, because he thinks that Harry did this to become famous. But after the first task, he and Ron make up, after Ron realizes that Harry wouldn't want to risk his life to get attention. J. K. Rowling writes Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in a third person limited point of view, so the reader only knows Harry's thoughts. She uses many important ways of describing characters, besides descriptive paragraphs: for example; the usage of the other characters' opinions to describe someone. I, for one, highly recommend this book to anyone who likes fantasy. However, in order to get the full thrill out of this book, one should read the first three books of the Harry Potter series. After you pick this book up, you will not be able to put it down.

I have read all the books and by far this is the best. J.K Rowling brings magic to the world with still keeping the insight on friends and how they always come back togeth in the end.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is a tale of a young teen that has a pretty rough life. His parents gone and is living with other relatives who pay him little mind at all. Oh, and of course he can preform magic. He goes to school at a place called "Hogwarts" and is constantly faced with vigorous challenges. He is being hunted down by other people of his sort, referred to as outlaws. Eventually he is going to have to find his way around undetected, as not to be seen or heard. And then is faced with a corrupted man and nearly kills Harry, but Harry manages to escape by his wits and skills far from the grasps of any other wizard.

Review brought to you by OBS staff member Annabell Cadiz Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire begins much darker than the previous novels. Lord Voldemort opens the third installment, hiding out in the house that had belonged to his parents, along with Worm tail (Peter Pettigrew), continuing to recover. Frank Bryce had been the caretaker for the Riddle family until they had been found dead and was relieved from his duties. But Frank decided to return to the small cottage on the Riddle House grounds to continue to act as caretaker. That is how Frank and Lord Voldemort come face to face. Frank does not meet a very kind end. Harry is awakened with his scar hurting and having seen the murder of Frank in his dream. Soon after, Harry embarks on his very first trip to the Quidditch World Cup with Ron, the entire Weasley clan, and Hermonie. After the match, everyone is celebrating when the Death Eaters, servants of Lord Voldemort, attack. They storm through the camp of wizards and witches, everyone around panicking. Harry, Ron, and Hermonie flee into the forest along with Fred, George, and Ginny. From their hiding spot, they see the Dark Mark lit up the sky, the sign of Lord Voldemort. Once they arrive back in school, Professor Dumledore announces Hogwarts will be hosting the Triwizard Tournament. It's a century old competition between different magical schools but had been stopped because it was too dangerous. The tournament will hold three difficult tasks and only one student will be choosen from each competing school by the Goblet of Fire. Only students seventeen and older are allowed to enter. But later on, when the Goblet of Fire releases the names of the champions chosen for each school, a fourth name unexpectedly pops out: Harry Potter. Dumbledore, along with everyone else, is completely thrown for a loop. Harry never wanted to enter. He had no dreams to gain anymore glory than he already had. He just wanted to watch the tournament like everyone else. But Harry gets thrown into a tournament that has less to do with winning a trophy and more to do with trying to get out alive because Lord Voldemort is ready to meet face to face.

This is the fourth book of the harry potter series; it is also his fourth year at the magic school called Hogwarts. This book makes me connect to the characters and also made it feel like they were my own friends. The author also makes the book come to life by the way she uses her words. The plot is a great story, the author really thought about what she wanted to write about. I would recommend this book to anyone, even if they do not like to read. This book is a book that will make feel comfort from the characters. By the time you're done with this book you will know the characters so well they will seem like your close friends. She makes you and the characters bond. The author is really good at saying what she wants to say and making it come to life. In various parts of the book she goes off into great detail about the forest and how the magic works. She makes her words the magic. She writes the story in an upbeat fast pace mood and the helped keep my attention thought the whole book. With a different author I think this book would not have as much action or suspense. The plot of the story is about young Harry Potter who goes to school at Hogwarts School of Magic and his leader is Professor Dumbledore. He has many friends at school and they love the World Quidditch Cup. Harry struggles to get into the tournament and finally gets in. I will leave the rest of the book for you. This book is a top of the line read. It has aspects of all book but it is still simple and to the point. The character bonding is really good; they seem like your pals. The author also has a large vocabulary that helps the plot come to life. If you do not like magic this book is not for you.
