Harry begins the 4th years in dramatic fashion, a visit from the Weasley family doesn't quite go to plan, much to the dismay of the Dursley's, but this does not stop Harry from attending the Quidditch World Cup. For the first time Harry grasps the size of the wizarding world he is apart of, realising there must be many other schools all over the world to accommodate all the wizards that clearly must exist. Harry's enlightenment is short lived however, resulting in his trip being cut short, this though is forced to the back of Harry's mind as the elder male Weasley's are being delicately evasive with Harry, Ron and Hermione...
Harry returns to Hogwarts buoyed by his time at the Weasley's and just like everyone else at Hogwarts is instantly fascinated by the prospect of a replaying of an old school tournament played between the 3 greatest European Schools. Each school can only have one champion and to ensure fair play, the Goblet of Fire is used to big the entrants. Does someone have it in for Harry though?Read more ›
JK Rowling's grip on her characters and the constant references to small details from the previous three books which help provide context and explanations as the stories unfold, are testimony to a brilliant mind in my view. Having read all four books now, like many other fans, I am eagerly awaiting the next book, and the one after that... I wonder do other readers feel like me, a sense of real friendhip with the three main characters? I really care what happens to them, and have even begun to hope fervently that Ron and Hermione are able to overcome their adolescent embarrassment and realise their true feelings for each other! Is there any hope for me? I have no children yet, but one on the way in February, and, boy or girl, I will be reading Harry Potter to them as soon as they are old enough to understand and enjoy as much as I do.
It is excellently read and well characterised. Yes, it is expensive, but will be used repeatedly and passed round to other desperate parents so is good overall value.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is a great extension beyond what was really Harry’s apprenticeship as defined by JK Rowing in the opening series of books. Yes, there are the usual suspects, familiar locations and settings and the same threats to sanity and life, but the opportunity is taken in this book to gradually expand upon those horizons and what an expansion the author treats us to.
Oh Harry, a problematic encounter with the Weasley’s is just an appetiser. Quidditch headlines in the form of the World Cup. Harry’s relationships with the stalwart duo of Hermoine and Ron develop yet further, but certainly not as smoothly as the reader may wish (or want). It is no surprise that Harry’s magician / wizard powers and finesse with the wand come on leaps and bounds, but once again with unexpected twists and turns.
Hogwarts, where would this tale be without that redoubtable old world school? The plans, plots, triumphs and disasters played out within its hallowed walls just continue to trip from JK Rowings pen and onto the paper. Just as Harry is beginning to develop into a mature young man, the author too is developing, the reader (or in this case with the audible version, the listener) can sense the very essence of it.
This is a great addition to the already strong stable of Harry Potter Books and like every one of its predecessors, the reader finds that they cannot turn the pages quick enough to keep pace with the every expanding story line.
