The Triwizard Tournament is to be held at Hogwarts. Only wizards who are over seventeen are allowed to enter – but that doesn’t stop Harry dreaming that he will win the competition. Then at Hallowe’en, when the Goblet of Fire makes its selection, Harry is amazed to find his name is one of those that the magical cup picks out. He will face death-defying tasks, dragons and Dark wizards, but with the help of his best friends, Ron and Hermione, he might just make it through – alive!
Wow, this book is so complicated, dark and incredible. Again, I loved it. It may have taken me 3 weeks to finally finish, but I still loved it.
So before we start, why did it take me so long?! Of course, I am really busy as usual. But also…this book has text half the size of the first 3! And I got so frustrated when I had to completely change my pace because of the font size.
“It matters not what someone is born,”
Anyway, let’s get on to the book itself! The first thing I noticed is this one is completely different. There is a definite switch between the first 3 books and this darker one. But does that mean it’s my favourite? Well, that’s a real struggle to decide. I didn’t fall in love with this one as much as I did the third, and it didn’t quite capture my heart as much. However, I don’t think it’s not as good. I just love it in a completely different way.
I have to say, I adore how different every book is. We have Privet Drive, Hogwarts, then introduce Hogsmeade, different teachers, Quidditch, and now other magical schools and the Triwizard Tournament! There is so much depth to the magical world and I absolutely adore it!
“but what they grow to be.”
So I’ve never realised that books could mature, but these truly do. Harry changes, his thought processes develop, and the themes get so much darker! It’s so complicated but it’s awesome.
I’m definitely still loving this world. It might be changing but the development is something I love and admire. Now I’m off to carry on reading the Order of the Phoenix!
May your shelves forever overflow with books! ☽
