It's the pivotal fourth novel in the seven-part saga of a young wizard's coming of age. The thickest. The juiciest yet. Harry Potter turns fourteen. But will all his friends? Rumors have persisted that one of the characters may not see the conclusion of this novel, something the author has refused either to confirm or deny. But we who love Ron, Hermione, Hagrid...even pitiful Neville Longbottom...wait anxiously to see if they will make it through safely. No one's fate is certain when Volde -- excuse me -- He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named is part of the picture.

What is certain is that a novel of excruciating suspense awaits, leavened by J. K. Rowling's inimitable sense of humor and the burgeoning details of her magical world. Whether it's taking a front-row seat at the International Quidditch World Cup, or meeting the new Defense-Against-the-Dark-Arts teacher, or finding out if Harry really does start a romance with Cho Chang, fans of the history-making boy-wizard will find their thirst for Hogwarts adventure slaked deliciously...at least for a little while!

        Harry's summer has been pretty bad. Of course, they always are, since he lives with the Dursleys, a family that hates him, but other years have been better. It helps that the Dursleys are on a diet which involves eating only a quarter of a grapefruit for breakfast, and of course Harry gets the smallest piece. He is helped by his friends, who send him food by owl, but he can't wait when he gets and invitation from his friend Ron to go see the Quidditch World Cup. And he loves Quidditch, too. But, things go a bit different than planned after the Quidditch cup. And when they get to Hogwarts, things are also a bit different from usual, but this time in a good way. While this isn't my favorite book in the series, it is still good. I read it for the second time recently. Also, please do not read this to your little brothers and sisters (assuming they are under eight). The book is mostly fine for little kids, but the ending is sort of intense. There is blood, it is scary, and did I mention that somebody dies? (I will tell you they aren't Harry's friend, but still....) Oh, and I forgot to mention there are a few curse words scattered throughout the book, but not enough to bother me.

              Harry Potter has a new challenge. Not staying alive, though he would like to do that too. But his new challenge? The Triwizard Tournament. This hasn't happened in a long time, so it is very important. Three challengers are chosen, but they must be 17 or over. So when Harry is the fourth challenger, it makes the papers and rumors. Not that Harry needs the extra attention. But now...Harry just needs to stay alive- but the end of this may be the worst challenge he's ever face. Happy reading!

                Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K Rowling is about Harry who has saved Hogwarts time after time again. Harry Potter is an odd young boy who has a connection with the dark lord. But there is an imposter in Hogwarts and Harry will soon find out who it is. However he hits another bump on the road in his life at Hogwarts. Harry has to go through all sorts of dangerous tasks as a champion at Hogwarts. But Ron gets mad at Harry because Ron thinks Harry did something wrong without telling him. This book is different from other books I have read because you never know what will happen next. To find out what happens to Harry Potter next read the book.

                  Harry Potter's biggest challenge ever!Happy, who feels more painful in the wounds of his forehead due to the nightmares he creates every day, is happy to be able to get out of the nightmare by participating in the Quidditch World Cup with friends Ron and Hermione. However, ominous energy appears in the sky near the Quidditch campsite. That is, the symbol of the Dark Lord Voldemort,'Mark of Darkness' appeared. After Voldemort disappeared 13 years ago, his followers, Death Eaters, who dared not reveal themselves, evoked the mark; fearful Harry wants to return to the safe Hogwarts School of Magic. If you're the headmaster of Dumbledore, you'll be able to protect yourself... find the ultimate champion! Triwizard Magic Contest!!However, this year is a little different from the previous year, and principal Dumbledore announced that he had decided to hold a Triwizard tournament in Hogwarts, which had been suspended to solidify the three prestigious magic schools in Europe. Triwizard is the most exciting and dangerous magical contest in the wizard world. One of the champions selected from the top three prestigious schools of magic competes for the Triwizard Cup. Hogwarts students marvel at the graceful French Beauvaton Magic Academy girls who visited to participate in the competition, and the boys at the Dumbstrang School in Bulgaria with a strong atmosphere fill the banquet hall.The venue is organized and the magic department staffs Bati Crouch and Dumbledore Under the presidency of the principal, a ceremony is held in which a cup of magical fire selects each school exhibitor. In the splendid fireworks festival, the cup of fire finally names the three students. They are the superstars of the Quidditch game at Dumstrang School, Victor Krum and the Fleur Delakur of the Bobaton Magic Academy, and Hogwarts' all-around beauty and the most popular Kedric Diggory, but after all three names were called, the cup of fire was unexpectedly another. Spits out one's name. The name is Harry Potter! The inevitable confrontation of fatality! However, Harry is 14 years younger than the age of 17, the age limit of the contestants. In addition, he says he has no intention to participate, saying that he has never put his name in the cup of fire, but he is forced to compete according to the determined will of the cup of fire. This has brought Harry Potter's attention to suspicion and envy, and Rita Schiter, a journalist expert on scandal, fanned it out by writing an article about the screams of Harry. Even Harry's best friend, Ron, starts believing that Harry wanted to become famous and manipulated the glass of fire to call his name, and Dumbledore, the principal who thought Harry put Harry's name in a glass of fire to put Harry at risk Professor Madeye Moody of the new Dark Magical Defense Professor instructs Harry Potter to defend. Harry begins his magical training for the three challenges of the Triwizard competition. Challenges include avoiding fire-spraying dragons, diving deep in huge lakes, and escaping live mazes. However, the more difficult task for Harry is to find a partner to attend the Christmas ball, YULL BALL. Fighting dragons, mermaids, and grindillos is a lot easier for Harry than to ask Cho Cheng, a lovely schoolgirl, to be a Christmas ball partner, while Ron realizes that her feelings for Hermione are different. Without realizing...the strongest spectacle unfolds towards the cup of fire!!The situation changes rapidly as someone is killed at Hogwarts campus. Feared by Voldemort's nightmare, Harry visits Dumbledore, but he also fails to provide a clear answer. As the game progresses and Harry and other players are struggling to solve the final task, something keeps an eye on them: the moment Victory comes to the fore, all the truth so far is revealed and Harry Potter is inescapable of true evil. The showdown is waiting... Although it was long, I loved it!
