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.

My favorite of the Harry Potter series. One of the longer books, but very engrossing. It's scary -- parents, read before you let your young children read it!
