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 five million Harry Potter books sold in Canada

Goblet of Fire was the first book to be published during the 'Harry Potter craze'. The multiple tasks make it really easy to divide the book into managable parts, though its size might be daunting for young readers rushing through the series.

I loved this one! It reminded me of Ready Player One. The only thing that drove me nuts was how long it took Harry to attempt to solve his second clue. I really enjoyed this book and movie.

da best book i have ever read, 'cept for sorceror's stone, a true legend among fantasy fans and avid readers alike. the thick plot between harry and the weasleys' truly set the book apart, not to mention the fast and furious quidditch cup action. i would definitly recommend reading 'quidditch through the ages' as a companion book. victor crum remains as one of my favorite characters ever! definitely a must read!

The fourth installment of Harry Potter takes a sharp turn into even darker subject matter than the third. With the burning pain of Harry’s scar warning of Voldemort’s growing strength, plans of the Dark Lord are set into motion.

Harry Potter has to grow up even more in this book as he is thrown into the Triwizard Tournament with three years less experience than the other competitors. As he faces the danger pushing in on every side, his friendships are tested, as well as his character and courage.

An excellent continuation that raises the stakes higher than ever before, this is a book to read if you must know what happens next in the Wizarding World. But be warned, things aren’t always as they seem.

I absolutely love this book. I would recommend it to everybody. There are so many little hints along the way that lead up to the final scene, and once you're there.........BOOM! It is really good, and I strongly suggest that you finish the series. This series is my favorite, and it's written by my favorite author, J.K Rowling. I rate this book with five full golden stars! Happy Reading!

This is the book in the series that J.K. Rowling was writing this series in a way that had it grow with us. This is the climax or buildup to the climax of the series arc. It's a definite eye-opener. It allowed us to learn more about the wizarding world outside of Hogwarts. It's a change in pace and should be recognized for setting up all the pieces for the next three in the series.
Ala the meme, this is also the movie where: "Hermione Granger and that time I saved Harry with research, Again. All the time. Really, he would have died without me." Truer words could not be said.

" Curiosity is not a sin" he said. " but we should exercise caution with our curiosity...yes, indeed.." ~ Professor Albus Dumbledor
" What's comin' will come, an' we'll meet meet it when it comes"~ Hagrid

"Well, if you don't like it, you know what the solution is, don't you?" Yelled Hermione; her hair was coming down out of its elegant bun now, and her face was screwed up in anger.
"Oh yeah?" Ron yelled back. "What's that?"
"Next time there's a ball, ask me before someone else does, and not as a last resort!"
Ron mouthed soundlessly like a goldfish out of water as Hermione turned on her heel and stormed up the girls' staircase to bed. Ron turned to look at Harry.
"Well," he sputtered, looking thunderstruck, "well--just that just proves--completely missed the point--"
Harry didn't say anything. He liked being back on speaking terms with Ron too much to speak his mind right now--but he somehow through that Hermione had gotten the point much better than Ron had.

"What you fail to recognize, is that it matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be."
-Albus Dumbledore

"If you want to know what a man is like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals."
-Sirius Black

"Remember Cedric. 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 a boy who was good, and kind, and brave, because he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort. Remember Cedric Diggory."
-Albus Dumbledore

"What will come, will come, and you'll just have to meet it when it does..."
-Hagrid

Harry Potter escapes another year with the Dursleys and spends it at Hogwarts. He quickly discovers that there is a tournament, the Triwizard Tournament, at school. Three schools will come to Hogwarts to participate in the tournament, and each school will get one champion. In order to enter, a student must pass the Age Line to put a piece of parchment with his or her name and put it into the Goblet of Fire. Poor Harry does not put his name in, but is picked for the tournament anyway. He is forced to compete and goes against Victor Krum, from Drumstrang, Fluer Decleur, from Beauxbatons, and Cedric Diggory, from Harry's very own Hogwarts. All the participates Harry were going against were in their 7th year, so they all had 3 more years of magical education then Harry had. There were 3 tasks that had to be completed that were described as "three extremely dangerous tasks." Harry has been known for enduring so much, but will he able this? Read Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire to find out!

MAJOR SPOILER ALERT!!!!!

The book opens up with the spying on Voldemort by muggle Frank Bryce. He manages to hear as far that Voldemort's deepest desire was to murder a boy named Harry Potter, whoever he was, and he had killed in the past with no remorse-before he was discovered and killed himself. The boy who was also spying, though unconsciously, and in his sleep, the very person who was target of Voldemort's murderous desires, was not discovered.

Harry became incredibly worried at this vision and that his lightning scar, mark of the first, but certainly far from last, attempt at slaughtering him by Voldemort. Was Voldemort growing stronger, as all signs seemed to indicate? Harry didn't dwell on it for about two days (spent by the Weasleys and watching the Quidditch World Cup). But at the end of that he was seriously alarmed and alert, because Voldemort's sign, the Dark Mark, had appeared again after thirteen years, after a riot which was heavily suspected of being made by the remainder of the Death Eaters (Voldemort's supporters). His fears weren't baseless either, as somebody had put his name into the Goblet of Fire against his will, and Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody, dulusional ex-Auror thought someone had done it to get him killed in the process.

Harry Potter as he wakes in the night with a throbbing pain in his scar. The next morning, Harry's Uncle Vernon receives a letter from the Weasleys asking Harry to join them at the Quidditch World Cup, and reluctantly agrees to let Harry go. Harry is brought to The Burrow the next day. Early the next morning, the Weasleys, Harry and Hermione head off to the Quidditch World Cup. They travel by Portkey, an object which wizards use to travel quickly to another linked destination. While traveling, they meet Cedric Diggory, another Hogwarts student. At their seat, Harry, Ron, and Hermione meet Winky, a house-elf who says she is saving a seat for her master, Bartemius 'Barty' Crouch. That night, after the game, a crowd of Death Eaters (followers of Voldemort) destroy the campground and torture its Muggle owners. Harry, Hermione and Ron escape by fleeing into the woods, where Harry discovers that his wand is missing. Moments later, someone fires Voldemort's symbol, the Dark Mark, using Harry's wand. Winky is found holding Harry's wand at the scene of the crime; Mr Crouch fires her as punishment for associating his name with the Dark Mark. Later at the Burrow, Cedric's father brings news that a man named Mad-Eye Moody attacked an intruder at his house, forcing Arthur to sort it out.
Upon arriving at Hogwarts, Professor Dumbledore announces that the Triwizard Tournament will take place at Hogwarts throughout the school year. The Tournament is a competition between three delegates, or "champions", one from each of the three great European schools of magic - Hogwarts, Beauxbatons, and Durmstrang. These champions compete in three tasks and they are given scores by the judges based on their performance
