Great book, but I agree it needs more heroine girls!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Book 4) (Hardcover)
I liked this book, but Hermione is the only girl who actually does anything brave and even then Harry comes out a better wizard. Fleur lost the Triwizard Tournament--I thought she should have pulled third at least, since second place was, well, impossible. If Krum lost it wouldn't be so bad, he's a great Quidditch player anyway, and just being pulled out of the Goblet of Fire is honor enough.
If you haven't read the book and this is all confusing you, here is a summary;
Harry goes back to school to find that the Triwizard Tournament will be held at Hogwarts this year. Two other schools will come to Hogwarts and all sixth and seventh year students will place their names in the Goblet of Fire, the judge to see whole will be in the Triwizard Tournament. The wizards (there are supposed to be three, one per school) will complete three tasks and whoever completes best, wins!
Two other schools come, Beauxbatons and Durmstrang. Fleur Delacour, part veela, and Victor Krum, star Quidditch player, are the students from the other schools whose names emerge from the Goblet of Fire. Though Harry is NOT a sixth or seventh year student, his name also comes out of the Goblet of Fire. (This is somewhat not surprising. Harry always ends up doing things that no other student does.) He is also the FOURTH wizard turning the tournament somewhat into a Quadwizard one.
Contrary to rumors, TWO people die in this book. One of them has appeared in the previous books but one has not. The ending is a little too creepy but otherwise I would reccomend it. Equally as good as the other books--better because it's longer! The book is indeed VERY long but I don't mind at all, because we get more Harry Potter.
