Synopsis

In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry is midway through both his training as a wizard and his coming of age. He wants to get away from the malicious Dursleys and go to the Quidditch World Cup with Hermione, Ron, and the Weasleys. He wants to dream about his crush, Cho Chang (and maybe do more than dream). And now that he’s gotten the hang of things at Hogwarts—he hopes—he just wants to be a normal fourteen-year-old wizard. But even by his standards, Harry's year is anything but normal. First Dumbledore announces the revival of a grand competition that hasn't taken place for one hundred years: the Triwizard Tournament, where a Hogwarts champion will compete against rivals from two other schools of magic in three highly dangerous tasks. Then someone frames Harry to participate in the tournament—which really means someone wants him dead. Harry is guided through the competition by Professor Alastor Moody, this year's Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, but he must also contend with a nasty reporter named Rita Skeeter, who digs up some highly unflattering secrets about Hagrid; a terrible fight with Ron, who is deeply jealous of Harry's fame; Hermione's newfound activism on behalf of house-elves; and the terrifying prospect of asking a date to the Yule Ball. Worst of all, Lord Voldemort may finally have gathered the materials necessary for his rejuvenation... and he has a faithful servant at Hogwarts waiting only for a sign. No, nothing is ever normal for Harry Potter. And in his case, different can be deadly.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Average rating

Best Harry Potter book.
February 10th, 2015
After almost a decade I decided to relive the excitement I had with these series as a teen, this time in digital format. I've read four of them so far, so maybe one of the remaining three will usurp this one's title, but for now, this is the one. This book is the tipping point; it is the last in a series of yearly, independent adventures (also the best of them, in my opinion) and its climax serves as the introduction to the single overarching chronicle that follows. It marks the end of the protagonists' childhood and innocense. From here on it's not about discovering the magical world anymore; it's about loss and survival. Fill yourself with awe and wonder one last time before growig up.
