I thought this was a terrible book. The book dragged on for most of the book and was not even close to half as interesting of the other books. This book dragged on too long. Didn’t like the movie or the book for goblet of fire, in my opinion the 2nd worst book only because the Oder of the Phoenix is the worst.

This was the best book in the series. It had an interesting plot throughout the story. I would totally recommend this book to everyone.

I ❤ed this book

This is my first read of this book (I know, for shame) and it was fantastic! This was the first one that it was glaringly evident how much was left out of and changed in the movie. I still think the movie is a good adaptation, but this has so much more depth and explanation. Like Dobby?? Is here?? And Important??? Can't wait to get to OOTP next!

The latest illustration edition of Harry Potter takes readers back to the Triwizard Tournament, the Yule Ball and dark magic on the rise in the Goblet of Fire. The illustrations from Jim Kay once again greatly enhance the story of this book as each beautiful drawing brings it to life.

This book was very interesting because there is a huge competition and he is one of the contestants. I read this book a lot for fun because it has a lot of humour and sudden deaths and is very exciting. I'm pretty sure that I read this book the most in the series thanks to the points I just made.

This was such a good book. It's the book that I've read the most in the whole series, and it never gets old. I enjoyed reading about the different tasks and clues. This book was awesome and I would definitely read it again in the future.

I think this was a very good and interesting book. I've read all of the other Harry Potter books but this one was pretty much the best one. I liked how Harry Potter had to solve the three clues. Some of the words were a little hard but over all it was a really good book. I wish there could be more books in the Harry Potter series.

Goblet of Fire was the first book to be published during the 'Harry Potter craze'. The multiple tasks make it really easy to divide the book into managable parts, though its size might be daunting for young readers rushing through the series.

I loved this one! It reminded me of Ready Player One. The only thing that drove me nuts was how long it took Harry to attempt to solve his second clue. I really enjoyed this book and movie.

" Curiosity is not a sin" he said. " but we should exercise caution with our curiosity...yes, indeed.." ~ Professor Albus Dumbledor
" What's comin' will come, an' we'll meet meet it when it comes"~ Hagrid

"Well, if you don't like it, you know what the solution is, don't you?" Yelled Hermione; her hair was coming down out of its elegant bun now, and her face was screwed up in anger.
"Oh yeah?" Ron yelled back. "What's that?"
"Next time there's a ball, ask me before someone else does, and not as a last resort!"
Ron mouthed soundlessly like a goldfish out of water as Hermione turned on her heel and stormed up the girls' staircase to bed. Ron turned to look at Harry.
"Well," he sputtered, looking thunderstruck, "well--just that just proves--completely missed the point--"
Harry didn't say anything. He liked being back on speaking terms with Ron too much to speak his mind right now--but he somehow through that Hermione had gotten the point much better than Ron had.

"What you fail to recognize, is that it matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be."
-Albus Dumbledore

"If you want to know what a man is like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals."
-Sirius Black

"Remember Cedric. Remember, if the time should come when you have to make a choice between what is right and what is easy, remember what happened to a boy who was good, and kind, and brave, because he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort. Remember Cedric Diggory."
-Albus Dumbledore

"What will come, will come, and you'll just have to meet it when it does..."

"Because I want to fix that in my memory forever," said Ron, his eyes closed and an uplifted expression on his face. "Draco Malfoy, the amazing bouncing ferret..."

Harry Potter escapes another year with the Dursleys and spends it at Hogwarts. He quickly discovers that there is a tournament, the Triwizard Tournament, at school. Three schools will come to Hogwarts to participate in the tournament, and each school will get one champion. In order to enter, a student must pass the Age Line to put a piece of parchment with his or her name and put it into the Goblet of Fire. Poor Harry does not put his name in, but is picked for the tournament anyway. He is forced to compete and goes against Victor Krum, from Drumstrang, Fluer Decleur, from Beauxbatons, and Cedric Diggory, from Harry's very own Hogwarts. All the participates Harry were going against were in their 7th year, so they all had 3 more years of magical education then Harry had. There were 3 tasks that had to be completed that were described as "three extremely dangerous tasks." Harry has been known for enduring so much, but will he able this? Read Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire to find out!

The book opens up with the spying on Voldemort by muggle Frank Bryce. He manages to hear as far that Voldemort's deepest desire was to murder a boy named Harry Potter, whoever he was, and he had killed in the past with no remorse-before he was discovered and killed himself. The boy who was also spying, though unconsciously, and in his sleep, the very person who was target of Voldemort's murderous desires, was not discovered.

Harry became incredibly worried at this vision and that his lightning scar, mark of the first, but certainly far from last, attempt at slaughtering him by Voldemort. Was Voldemort growing stronger, as all signs seemed to indicate? Harry didn't dwell on it for about two days (spent by the Weasleys and watching the Quidditch World Cup). But at the end of that he was seriously alarmed and alert, because Voldemort's sign, the Dark Mark, had appeared again after thirteen years, after a riot which was heavily suspected of being made by the remainder of the Death Eaters (Voldemort's supporters). His fears weren't baseless either, as somebody had put his name into the Goblet of Fire against his will, and Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody, dulusional ex-Auror thought someone had done it to get him killed in the process.

Harry Potter as he wakes in the night with a throbbing pain in his scar. The next morning, Harry's Uncle Vernon receives a letter from the Weasleys asking Harry to join them at the Quidditch World Cup, and reluctantly agrees to let Harry go. Harry is brought to The Burrow the next day. Early the next morning, the Weasleys, Harry and Hermione head off to the Quidditch World Cup. They travel by Portkey, an object which wizards use to travel quickly to another linked destination. While traveling, they meet Cedric Diggory, another Hogwarts student. At their seat, Harry, Ron, and Hermione meet Winky, a house-elf who says she is saving a seat for her master, Bartemius 'Barty' Crouch. That night, after the game, a crowd of Death Eaters (followers of Voldemort) destroy the campground and torture its Muggle owners. Harry, Hermione and Ron escape by fleeing into the woods, where Harry discovers that his wand is missing. Moments later, someone fires Voldemort's symbol, the Dark Mark, using Harry's wand. Winky is found holding Harry's wand at the scene of the crime; Mr Crouch fires her as punishment for associating his name with the Dark Mark. Later at the Burrow, Cedric's father brings news that a man named Mad-Eye Moody attacked an intruder at his house, forcing Arthur to sort it out.
Upon arriving at Hogwarts, Professor Dumbledore announces that the Triwizard Tournament will take place at Hogwarts throughout the school year. The Tournament is a competition between three delegates, or "champions", one from each of the three great European schools of magic - Hogwarts, Beauxbatons, and Durmstrang. These champions compete in three tasks and they are given scores by the judges based on their performance
