    One thought on “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”

    1. Don't mind me, just crying my eyes out. This was WAY better than I remember it being, and I remember it being pretty darn good. J.K. Rowling is a writing goddess and I can't believe how much foresight and planning went into this series. She already hints at the horcruxes and many other things in this book that don't show up until much later. Definitely one of my favorites in the series (but I say that about all of them)!

    2. Um. Wow. Yeah. That was freaking FANTASTIC!!!! Probably my favorite so far, just wow oh my goshWHAT EVEN!! I feel empowered and sad at the same time (sad becauseyou know). 5/5 stars of course!

    3. *To read more reviews by me visit Views & Reviews *I seriously have no idea why I still review these books when I have nothing new to say. I mean J.K. Rowling is perfect. This series is perfect. And I dream day & night of going to Hogwarts. So what I'm going to do is, I'm going to show you how I felt about this book:When I started the book:During the book:At the end: Umm Mam RowlingAll in allSorry for the lame review, readers. I just really don't know what to say

    4. This was the beginning of my addiction to POTter. I had previously experimented with and enjoyed POTter on 3 different occasions, but could easily have walked away and never touched the stuff again. Then, under some pressure from some POTterHEAD peers of mine, I tried the newest blend called the Gobletd everything changed. As the warm, easy, potato chip prose crossed my blood-brain barrier, euphoria ensued. My inner child was smitten. Iwashooked and Iwashappy. Ignore the so-called "experts" who [...]

    5. every time I read this I can't stop laughing at how MUCH FORESHADOWING can possibly be crammed into one book and then I just picture:

    6. Re-Read in December 2014 for Harry Christmas To You SO I HAVE A FEW NOTES ON THIS ONE:-at the beginning, Voldemort says to Wormtail, "I will allow you to perform an essential task for me, one that many of my followers would give their right hands to perform" OMG J.K. ROWLING FORESHADOWS EVERYTHINGGGG-when the Weasley men come to Privet Drive through the Dursleys' fireplace is just. priceless. Yet ANOTHER scene that I wish had made it into the movie.-We get to meet Bill in this book (way earlier [...]

    7. “Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.”There are so many chapters and characters and details that make this book special. Here are some of my favourites:1. S.P.E.W.2. Hermione in every scene ever3. The house elves and the kitchen scenes (I'm honestly so in love with the kitchens. Every time they tickle the pear in the portrait I get all excited)4. Durmstrang and Beauxbatons5. The Yule Ball and the fact that Harry thinks Hermio [...]

    8. Reread done for #AdamRereadsHP! GOBLET OF FIRE is definitely work and I could've done for a lot of cutting. One of the things I admire most about this series is the way J.K. Rowling can speed through a year in under 300 pages. And GOBLET is twice that length and it didn't always feel justified. I shouldn't complain because more time in this world is MORE TIME IN THIS WORLD, and it's all very realized, but the pacing still felt off. (I really, really could've done without the Quidditch World Cup. [...]

    9. Best one so far! "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 the boy who was good, was kind, and brave, because he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort. Remember Cedric Diggory."

    10. I remember the first time I read this……I’d just started a real crappy job that I came to hate. I’d dropped out of university after my first year because my degree in psychology was a terrible choice, I seemed to be making more enemies than friends through life, but none of that mattered because I was reading a great series of books. I had something to look forward to every day when I really needed it. The point is books are escapism and fantasy books particularly so. As I got my shit tog [...]

    11. Reread in December 2017 for #HarryXmasToYouForever sad about Winky not being in the movie and Rita Skeeter’s whole story not making it in either, because she’s so awful but JUSTICE IS SERVEDReread in December 2015 for #HarryXmasToYouSeriously so many things I forgot because it's so different from book to movie! It's so good still though. I loved Dobby in this book.Reread in December 2014 for #HarryXmasToYouAgain, so great. Lots of things I forgot! Like Ludo Bagman as a character, the Weasley [...]

    12. في سوريا والعراق ظهر قادة الدولة الإسلامية "داعش" يغزون مدنهما يخرجون من ليس منهم,من ليس "إسلاميا" مثلهم من بيوتهم ومدنهم… يقتلون وينحرون رأس من يقف أمامهم, من يختلف عنهم في الدين أو المذهب وحتي الرأي أحيانامن ليس مثلهم لا يحق له العيش في الدول التي يفتحونها أو ينتووا فتحهاوع [...]

    13. Normally, I congratulate myself for finishing a 500 + page novel but after reading 734 pages of this book, my only reaction was “How could it already be over?”The more I read Harry Potter, the harder I fall in love with J.K. Rowling. I couldn’t grasp how she could make this most fantastic series with the most complex and most expertly planned out plot, you could tell she was so sure of the story the moment she started writing the first book. Her attention to detail is more than impressive [...]

    14. I'm apparently the crankiest person on earth, because this was my least favorite Potter book yet. (AZKABAN being my favorite!) It's mostly because:1. There is too much tournamenting for my taste. 2. I hate the house elves. :O3. The word "quietly" is egregiously overused. It loses its effectiveness because it appears so often.4. There are moments when Harry and Ron behave like stereotypical stupid boys (I know, I know, they're 14.n't mean I can't be annoyed with them.)The book gets an extra star [...]

    15. Ummm. it's Harry Potter? I'm incapable of a decent review or anything new to say. My rambling thoughts as I finish this:- Sooo much about Voldemort's planning makes more sense now. Movie's skipped a lot.-Speaking of Dobby is my favorite and I'll forever be mad he was written out of the movie - Barry Crouch Jr is still attractive, but I think it's only because David Tennant played him in the movie-I'm still not over Cedric. So sweet. So kind. 💔- Cho is boring and I don't know what Harry sees i [...]

    16. Death had always been a major theme of these books, but Goblet of Fire was really the turning point of the whole series. Not only did Voldemort return, but we found out that the Wizarding World is much larger, and (view spoiler)[ Cedric is killed (hide spoiler)].The characters become more real yet are still stuck in flux between child and adult, which is apropos seeing as how this book is literally in the middle of the series. ["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    17. Book Review4+ of 5 stars to Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, the 4th book in the "Harry Potter" young adult fantasy series, written in 2000 by J.K. Rowling. Although this one was close to a 5 for me, I think it's enough to give 1 book in the series a 5-rating, which means this one will stay at a 4. But I still loved and adored the characters, the setting, the story, the themes all of it! Rather than go into a detailed review, as we've seen too many of them (always fun to read tho!), I'm just [...]

    18. “It is my belief that the truth is generally preferable to lies.”Re-read - Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire steps up from the previous ones very well, it's the darkest book I've ever read since Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Who knows ? Harry Potter grows up and becomes a boy who has to take the responsibility on his shoulders, he never wants to be selected, he never wants glory and prestige, yet the world turns against him anyway.I love that this book isn't a children's book anym [...]

    19. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was my most anticipated read of the series… It’s my favorite movie (I KNOW I KNOW- the books are SO MUCH BETTER) and it’s where the books really start to get intense. Even though there was a part that brought tears to my eyes, its not as sad as whats yet to come… I feel like this book is the book of transitioning for Harry, Ron and Hermione. This is the last book of their childhood. If the movies follow the books as well as I hope, shit really starts t [...]

    20. This is at least the 10th time I have read Harry Potter. I feel like I am doing a disservice writing a review of this book. That being said, I usually reread the entire series around this time of year when I am waiting for spring to start. It is like revisiting an old friend and brings a warm feeling to my heart. In my last review, I equated reading Potter to warm apple pie with vanilla ice cream on top, basically the ultimate comfort read. My favorite section in this book occurs in the last 150 [...]

    21. I've read this series more times than I can even remember. But every time it feels like the first time all over again. There's always certain details that I forget between my re-reads and movie watching and it's great to revisit and remember why this is one of my favorites of the series. I loved how much foreshadowing is in it and knowing what's coming, certain parts just break my heart. I decided to do the audio book by Jim Dale for the first time ever. Oh my was it great! Definitely recommend [...]

    22. My entire emotions of this book can be summed up nicely by this picturePUT YOUR PITCHFORKS DOWN OKAY let me explain. So, I have now come to terms with the fact that 63.34% of this fandom is based on nostalgia, like it’s a decent book but for the HYPE it’s just…well….(s) So Goblet of Fire was over 700 pages and I felt as if the story hadn’t started until the last 10 chapters. 700 PAGES700 PAGES FOR A MIDDLE SCHOOL BOOKLIKE THAT’S GOTTA BE SOME HARDCORE, ENTERTAINING ISH IF YOU WANNA G [...]

    23. Is there anyone else out there who thinks Goblet of Fire was the high point of the whole Harry Potter series? I'm just wondering if I'm strange or something. :)
