My Review | Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Harry Potter, #4)Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is about a boy with magical powers named Harry. Maybe you’ve heard of him. I thought that this was the best book of the series thus far and actually was bettered paced than the movie, which is expected given the length of a movie and the length of a super long book. The author was able to convey the passing of time between the seasons and the challenges of the competitors in the Triwizard Tournament. The book also puts house-elfs at the fore with Winky (not in the movie) and our good friend Dobby. Both play pivotal roles. With the emphasis on the elfs, there is another storyline in the book, not in the movie, of a crusading Hermione, who attempts to come to the aid of Elfish Welfare. Another difference was the first task of the tournament. The book provides a simpler finish for Harry, no wild, special effects-laden chase with a dragon. I thought the book’s version of the challenge was more appropriate for kids. It made more sense. I’ve liked all of the books so far, but this one provided more information, more characters and side adventures that made this book a lot of fun. Five stars from me.
