Well, you will definitely love the adventure in this book. The Tri-wizard tournaments are back in the wizarding community and Harry get's sucked in. The Veela are charming the guys with their looks while the competitors are trying to win. You'll never guess the outcome... I cried.

JK Rowling once again brings Hogwarts to life in her fourth installment of the Harry Potter series. In his continuing battle with he-who-must-not-be-named, Harry Potter is unknowingly entered as the youngest person to ever compete in the tri wizard tournament. It is either victory or death for Harry and the cards are stacked against him.

The Goblet of Fire is decidedly darker and more mature than the previous three and the first in which the reader witnesses death first hand.

My personal recommendation is 10 years +

Beginnig his fourth year at Hogwarts, fourteen-year-old Harry Potter and his friends eagerly await Dumbledore's huge announcement of the Triwizard Tournament involving two other European schools of magic. The Goblet of Fire will choose those 17 and above to participate in the tournament and there will only be one student of each school participating..
The bigger the surprise when the goblet gives a fourth name as participant and it is no other than the underage Harry Potter.

Seeing and feeling the signs of Lord Voldemort once again Harry has to face three difficult tasks, a crumbling friendship with Ron and last but not least the dangerous Lord Voldemort.

The forth installment in this series really hits the mark going out of being pure children's literature. Dealing with problems every young adult faces sooner or later. What I liked about this very thick book is that it never got boring once with much darker elements and more action it's contents grew with our three heros.
As always Harry relies heavily on the help of his friends and teachers to survive.

The Goblet of Fire is the first unsafe book in the Harry Potter series. This is the first book where someone we care about dies. A student dies and that leaves the reader feeling, knowing, that the rest of the series is going to be just as nerve wracking. It makes you want to read the rest of the series all the way through; however, it makes you afraid to because of the unknown. This series is just too awesome! I reccomend it to everyone!

It's all been said before, but the Harry Potter series opens the door to a world of wonderful imagination, and genuine humanity. Are we all so jaded that we are deeply thrilled to discover that fine children's literature is still being written? Not just for children, though, this series is every bit as captivating for the adults as the little ones in your house. Hooray for the Boy Who Lived!

GOF is an exciting adventure, and Harry and friends show signs of growing maturity. Poignant and surprising.

"Goblet of Fire" is a thrill ride of a book! The adventures are much more exciting than in the previous books. The main characters continue to be well-thought-out and are maturing as all teenagers do, with ups and downs.

Oh dear, just when Harry thought he might get a peaceful year too. LOL

In this fourth installment we meet characters from two other wizarding schools, and watch as they all compete in the Triwizard tournament for a chance at eternal glory. With Harry around though, things are never that simple.
