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.

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.

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!

This doorstopper 4th volume in the Harry Potter series truly flung Harry Potter mania into all corners of our world, and for obvious reason: as a fantasy, the book is unbeatable in its depictions of wondrous new magical people, creatures, objects, and locations; as an adventure, the book takes readers from place to place, and even time to time, with effortless appeal; and as a dramatic continuation of an epic series, "Goblet of Fire" serves as a heartstopping switcharound for the series as a whole, as the danger in Harry's hidden Wizarding world is taken into unprecedented territory. Now in his fourth of seven years at Hogwarts, Harry Potter is pitted against international witches and wizards in a creatively original competition of magic, while also dealing with his growing feelings for female classmates and expanding his familial relationship with his friends Ron and Hermione. Even darker than Book 3, this volume finally sees the emergence of Harry's ultimate nemesis, the evil Lord Voldemort who destroyed Harry's own parents, and the author's usual twists and turns are as delightful and shocking as ever before, but now with an added weight - this book isn't as standalone as those before, so the darkness Harry encounters has overreaching effects in future installments. A fabulous book!

I had a hard time reading this one. I was sorely disappointed in how much of the book was of a quidditch match. I often put this book down and couldn't pick it up and begin to read it. Although I did finally manage to finish it. It's too long and boring with the quidditch match. I love quidditch but it's better to watch than to read.

As a fan of this series, I feel that the fourth installment of the Harry Potter series crosses the threshold into it becoming more a series for adults than children. With the third book, the reader is given a glimpse of the dark direction the series can take, but the door is definitely thrown wide open with Goblet as Harry faces some of the most difficult times he's ever had to face. On the upside, He also gets to experience a once in a lifetime opportunity when he attends the Quidditch World Cup with his friends. Even though the event becomes frightening and menacing events occur, Harry seems to enjoy the experience. Luckily for the fans of the series, the unexpected doesn't stop there. When Harry arrives at Hogwarts, he learns that his school will be hosting a tournament between Hogwarts and two other wizarding schools. Somebody has plans for Harry and they aren't good plans and Harry has to keep his wits when he is chosen as one of the participants in the tournament.

One thing I did not like about this story is the way Ron behaved after Harry was chosen as one of the champions. I get that he was jealous but it really bothered me that he is supposed to be Harry's best friend and you are supposed to be loyal to your friends, but yet Ron did not believe that Harry did not submit his own name into the cup. Even when he finally comes to his senses and realizes his mistake, I felt like Harry forgave him too quickly. I understand why he did but I felt like Harry let him off the hook too easily. I am sure that Ron gets annoyed playing second fiddle to Harry, but the series is about Harry after all. If it were about Ron, then this book would have been Ronald Weasley and the Goblet of Fire.

I very much enjoyed the introduction of the social custom of learning how to dance and attending the Yule Ball. Harry's distress at not being able to take Cho Chang to the Ball and worrying about who he should take was entertaining. Hermione's coming out was also enjoyable to see. Even with Ron's snotty attitude, it was still wonderful.

I liked Cedric and thought he and Harry demonstrated great teamwork in the tournament even though they were competing against one another. Though the final stage of the tournament was well written and highly suspenseful, it was still difficult to read what happens as Harry's worst nightmare comes to life. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Draco undergo some major changes as well with the help of Mad-Eye Moody.

I am now more than half-way through the series and am so excited to be reading it again. There are so many things in the books that I missed in the first reading or had forgotten about that it really does feel like I'm reading it for the first time. Even knowing what awaits me in book #5, I am looking forward to experiencing it all over again.

In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, J.K. Rowling offers up equal parts danger and delight--and any number of dragons, house-elves, and death-defying challenges. Now 14, her orphan hero has only two more weeks with his Muggle relatives before returning to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Yet one night a vision harrowing enough to make his lightning-bolt-shaped scar burn has Harry on edge and contacting his godfather-in-hiding, Sirius Black. Happily, the prospect of attending the season's premier sporting event, the Quidditch World Cup, is enough to make Harry momentarily forget that Lord Voldemort and his sinister familiars--the Death Eaters--are out for murder.

Harry Potter is midway through both his training as a wizard and his coming of age. Harry wants to get away from the pernicious Dursleys and go to the International Quidditch Cup with Hermione, Ron, and the Weasleys. He wants to dream about Cho Chang, his crush (and maybe do more than dream.) He wants to find out about the mysterious event that's supposed to take place at Hogwarts this year, an event involving two other rival schools of magic, and a competition that hasn't happened for hundreds of years. He wants to be a normal, fourteen-year-old wizard. But unfortunately for Harry Potter, he's not normal--even by wizarding standards. . . And in his case, different can be deadly.

I was not impressed with the GoF movie but the book is one of my favorites in the series. The introduction of Winky, a house elf, is totally excluded from the movie but the central key to the overall plot in the book. Other than that, Hermione's character is given more depth in her activism role as well as the difficulties of adolescence dealt with in the other main characters. GoF is the "coming of age" book in the series and focuses a lot on how our trio copes with early adolescence, noticing the opposite sex, and how friendship evolves.

Harry Potter is now in his fourth year at Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry, but this year he will find that he gets more than he bargained for as he finds himself signed up for a contest between different European schools of magic, that involves magical skill prowess, and that was supposed to have an age limit but someone apparently felt that Harry should be in on the 'fun'. In this fourth installment of the Potter series Rowling's writing is even more addicting and has matured a bit compared with the first three Potter books.

Following Harry through the tasks of the Tri-Wizard Tournament, and Ron and Hermione's developing new relationship was a delightful task. Wondering what was going to happen next with the rise of Voldemort, and thinking about what it would be like to run into the strange professor Moody on a busy sidewalk in Texas made this book one that was hard to put down; it' one of my favorite in the series thus far. I must say I am glad that I am reading this series now rather than when it was popular I like reading the books without having seen all the movies its nice being able to picture some of the characters in my head; and having my own picture of them; sometimes the book really is better.

Every time I read the next Harry Potter book, I find its my new favorite. This is the first book in the series I can genuinely say that I loved, and it really makes me want to grab the next one right away.

I loved this one for a variety of reasons: far less Quidditch (ugh, I am so not a sports person); more getting at what I consider to be the meat of this series with learning more about the Death Eaters and Voldemort; lots of betrayal and secret identities. We learned about and met a lot of the characters who will be more important in the coming books, and those who were portrayed as bad people really started to show that behavior in this one.

Ugh the feels! I went back and forth between listening to Stephen Fry and reading the actual book this time.

I love that Harry is using the threat of Sirius to get just a little bit of peace from the Dursley's. I am so happy that he and Sirius are corresponding and that he still has hope of clearing his name and actually getting to spend time with him. But as with this series, things just get worse and worse with this book. Sirius, so worried about Harry, was willing to risk his freedom to be close enough to keep him safe.

I pretty much enjoyed everything about this book, although at the start I thought I had partially disliked this book previously. I was mistaken. This book was great from start to finish. I loved all the side stories and the fact that they didn't get lost in the main plot, while not taking over the book either. It was interesting to see Harry and Ron actually have a little falling out. It wasn't so different to see Ron and Hermione at each other's throats, but this time had a different feel. Ron was just a bit of a butthead in this book, but it's also kind of understandable. He kind of always gets the short end of the stick. But no matter what, he loves Harry like a brother and will always have his back. And the same goes for Harry.

Mad-Eye Moody was fantastic, as was Dobby, and poor, poor Winky. It was great finally meeting Charlie and Bill Weasley. And I really liked Krum. I was actually pulling for him and Hermione. I think it would have been very interesting to the whole story to have another character from a completely different school thrown into the mix.

And you can't have a Harry Potter book without Voldemort. The ending really killed me. Poor Harry. Poor Cedric, who was a nice kid just trying to do the right thing by agreeing to share the win with Harry, and ended up dead for his troubles. It just adds to the hate you already have for Voldemort--especially after seeing the echo of Cedric, who begged Harry to take his body back...and Lilly and James. Ugh the feels!

The next book is by far my favorite in the series, and also the book that makes bawl. Not sure if I will read or listen. I'm thoroughly enjoying Stephen Fry, but I get through it faster when I read. Decisions.

As Harry's fourth year at Hogwarts starts, everyone is talking about the Tri-Wizard Tournament that will take place at their school. Two other schools of witchcraft and wizardry will compete against Hogwarts' champion. Only students seventeen years of age or older are allowed to compete. Their names are placed in the Goblet of Fire which picks one contestant from each school. No one is more shocked than Harry when the Goblet gives the name of a fourth contestant: Harry Potter. As Harry prepares to overcome his fears and face the three trials that will be put to him and the other contestants, he worries that whoever entered his name may not want him to live through the tournament.

Another excellent addition to the Harry Potter series. This story is a bit darker than the previous books in the series. New characters are added to the series, but the older characters also have their time in the spotlight. As usual, the audiobook's narrator was outstanding. My rating: 4.5 Stars.

If you have not read the Harry Potter book series, please have somebody mind control you, and make you vandalize your house, and throw stones through your window saying read harry potter or more will come. then stop the mind control and wonder who vandalized your house, read the note on the stones, and read the Harry Potter book series.

** spoiler alert ** loved loved loved it. my favorite in the series after prisoner of azkaban. i loved how it started. can't stand the house elves though and hate reading about dobbs and winky. the way they talk- too...slaveish, racist(?) for me. but i loved the story and am really digging where the series is going. and so glad moody didn;t turn out to be bad and that sirius black is back! hope he starts playing a larger role- i love that character. and im really excited to find out where shes going with the whole snape character.

This book cover is wrong. This is the children's British Goblet of Fire version. Not the American version. Just an FYI!

The Harry Potter series was definitely one of the best I've ever read... I had so much fun standing and waiting in line each time a new book came out, I'm really disappointed that the series is over, but it had a fantastic ending.

I started reading the Harry Potter Series because a friend of mine said I should. So far I have found it enjoyable. Goblet of Fire was not my favorite. I didn't like the start, but overall I did like the book and it did get better. It is a typical fun little romp with the kids from Hogwarts. And now that I have read the book I can watch the movie. I do look forward to reading the next one

This is the 4th book in the Harry Potter Series. My book is in fairly good condition - a little dusty and some bent corners on pages. This book was good. It helps to be to be a fan of Harry Potter.
