5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST BOOK EVER WRITTEN!, 14 Aug. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Book 4) (Hardcover)
There are those who say this book was too long. I, along with all my friends, would be overjoyed if the books doubled in size as the series progressed. Probably the most common complaint is that the beginning is slow. I thought it was riveting - to find out more about You-Know-Who's past, and then to go on to the Quidditch Match. If there had been six stars, I would have given all six. Some people say these are not children's books. I've read it, my 8 year old brother has read it, my best friend has read it, his 8 year old brother has read it, and his 6 year old sister had it read to her. None of us have had bad dreams. Instead, I've been continually wishing that I would dream about it - at least then I would turly experience the books.
Recently, I took a class at a local college. Every single kid in the class had read it; every single kid loved it. I am twelve years old; I loved reading about kids somewhere near my age.
My favorite character is Hermione. Like me, she's smart (although I'm nowhere near as studious and smart as she is). She's bossy, like me, and not quite what you would call pretty.
I think J.K. Rowling is the best author ever. I've read all the 'great' children's authors; J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Roald Dahl, etc., and J.K. Rowling surpasses them all. I finished the fourth book in an hour, and I would have loved it even more if it had been six thousand pages long! I don't know if I'll be able to live until the fifth comes out. i've already ordered a copy.
All I wish for now is that Joanne won't stop with seven books. I know everyone would love to read an eighth, and a ninth, and a tenth!
If you haven't read the fourth Harry Potter, READ IT! Even if you hate reading, you'll love this book!
