Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, J. K. Rowling

Publishers: Bloomsbury

Pages: 640

Main Characters:
Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger

You get the gist by now, I won’t say much about the story in the book because most of you will have seen the films. Again this was another great book by Rowling. It is also a bit different from the first three books because it doesn’t just cover Harry at the Dursley’s, at Hogwarts, playing Quidditch and fighting Voldemort. It is based around Harry competing in the Triwizard Cup. This makes a refreshing change because the books were becoming a bit predictable because they followed the points that I made above. This made the book much more interesting because we were introduced to many new characters as well as the story line becoming more developed.
This book is the coming of age for Harry (and the series). It sees the series moving away from just been a children’s series as Rowling adds many more adult themes such as murder, torture, betrayal and love. For me though (a 20 year old) it just made the book fascinating. The ending is also great, making you just want to read the next book as it marks the beginning of a new chapter in Harry’s life. The book was great, again if you think the Harry Potter series is just for children you should read this book and of course if you have seen the film you should definitely read the book, it’s great!
