As the fourth book passed through my hands for about the fifth time I knew I could read the book again. I would say yes I am obsessed with Harry Potter how could you not be. The fourth book, Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire by J K Rowling just keeps on giving us more and more. The fourth book brings Harry to a new stage in the game of survival.
The Plot of Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire:
“Harry Potter is midway through both his training as a wizard and his coming of age. Harry wants to get away from the pernicious Dursley’s and go to the International Quidditch Cup with Hermione, Ron, and the Weasley’s. He wants to dream about Cho Chang, his crush (and maybe do more than dream). He wants to find out about the mysterious even that’s supposed to take place at Hogwarts this year, an event involving two other rival schools of magic, and a competition that hasn’t happened for hundreds of years. He wants to be a normal, fourteen-year-old wizard. But unfortunately for Harry Potter, he’s not normal-even by wizarding standards. And in his case, different can be deadly.”
As I put down the book for the sixth time I loved it more and more. The way J. K. Rowling writes, she really is an amazing storyteller. The series of Harry Potter just gets better and better every time I read the novels.
The fourth book brings on a whole new story line as the wizard cup is being fought for by professionals and students. Reading this book the first time I was enthralled. For one there was so much detail and I was amazed. It was the longest book so far (next book even longer) and it kept me reading throughout.
As the book started out with the the muggle world but really it was Voldermorts scene I was excited. Voldermort was still weak but he was getting in his appearance and making himself known. Soon he would find his way to become whole again which is what is all feared. I like the scenes with Voldermort because they are intriguing. We have our hero and now our villain who are completley different but have that connection, a connection that holds so much more to the story.
When the book then went into Harry’s dream I loved it because you got to see more of the connection. Harry is able to see what Voldermort is doing through dreams which is fantastic (but is used against him sooner or later).
The world cup was a very interesting part of the plot along with the tournment. I loved these because they were again something new. They both showed more of the world of wizardy which was really exciting. In the movie I remember the maze part and that was actually suspenseful with how it was shown which was different for Harry Potter. To me Harry Potter is for the kids and adults but it is always cheerful, never really suspenseful or even a little scary. This addition I thought was great to see.
Through the book there was more interaction with Charlie and Bill of the Weasley who I love to see actually in the movie which is one of my pet peeves but I love them in the book. They are a great part of the book to have.
J K Rowling really brings Harry Potter to a new level with Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire. There is mystery, adventure, intrigue, fear and hope all wrapped up into one novel. If you haven’t read the books yet find them, open the pages and read. If you like wizards you wouldn’t be sorry.
