Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Reviews

    This was the beginning of my addiction to

    ter. I had previously

    with and enjoyed

    ter on 3 different occasions, but could easily have walked away and never touched the stuff again. Then, under some pressure from some

    ter

    peers of mine, I tried the newest blend called

    ...and everything changed. As the warm, easy, potato chip prose crossed my blood-brain barrier, euphoria ensued. My inner child was smitten.

    I...was...hooked and I...was...happy.

    ...and everything changed. As the warm, easy, potato chip prose crossed my blood-brain barrier, euphoria ensued. My inner child was smitten.

    I...was...hooked and I...was...happy.

    Ignore the so-called "experts" who say

    ter is brain cell killing pap. Don’t listen to those jaded, book snobby squares. Most of them are wound so tight they wouldn’t know a good book if it sat on their face and wriggled.

    ter makes you feel good.

    ter makes you smile.

    ter makes you joyous and giggly. Hell,

    ter makes you want to use the word giggly.

    ter is enjoyable and fun. That's enough for me.

    So what made

    so much more addicting than the rest of the

    ter I had tried. Part of it was that I had already seen the movies (up through Order of the Phoenix) before I got my hands on genuine

    ter. The first 3 were fun but I felt like I had already "been there done that" as they were pretty faithfully adaptated for the screen. Still enjoyable, but not enough to put the

    ter monkey on my back.

    Then came

    of

    ter and it was a big, huge, tightly-rolled fatty at 750 pages. The cut, diluted movie strain couldn’t hope to be as potent as the primo original and the story was finally given the room to breathe and take on an epic feel. It was completely addictive. The world-building details started coming fast and furious and the characters were given considerably increased depth. Add that to Rowling’s breezy, “ear friendly” prose and I found myself spaced out for hours turning the pages and still hungering for more.

    It’s high praise indeed when I say that 750 pages did not contain a single dull, ploddy moment. This was fun and wonderful and a pleasure to experience. It deserves to be recognized for the iconic work that it is in the realm of YA fantasy.

    Is it popcorn? Certainly.

    Is it a joy to read? Definitely.

    Is it one I HIGHLY RECOMMEND to all lovers of feel good, comfort food? YES.

    5.0 stars.

    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 e

    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 than in the movies, I might add), and Mrs. Weasley is very disapproving of how Bill looks. I love that Bill stood up for himself and was like NOBODY GIVE AN F HOW I LOOK, AND NEITHER DO IIIIII. It was a nice thing to throw in there.

    -Dobby is also in this book more, and seeing how different he is was really fun.

    -Harry and Ron fighting made my heart hurt so much.

    -All of the drama at the Yule Ball just made me SQUEEE because it's so obvious that Ron and Hermione like each other and they just don't want to admit it and GAH. THE FEELS.

    -I also love how much Hermione stands up for what she believes in, which you can particularly see in this book. She wants justice for the house-elves, she won't let Ron get away with being an idiot (like when he says he just wants a pretty girl to go to the ball with), and she is especially confident in this book as well. Malfoy and many other people are constantly teasing her, but she is completely above it, and for that I admire her.

    -WHEN HARRY IS LISTENING TO HAGRID AND MADAME MAXIME AND HE SEES THE BEETLE? IMAGINE IF HE HAD JUST STEPPED ON IT? WOULDN'T THAT HAVE BEEN GREAT?

    -I completely forgot about the part where Harry sees Barty Crouch on the Marauders Map! He was so close to finding out something big, but then things got crazy and he didn't, but WHOA. SO CLOSE.

    -Cedric's death hit me a lot harder than it ever has before... He was such an amazing person, and I wish that he could have survived so him and Harry could have been buddies.

    -VOLDEMORT FORESHADOWS HORCRUXES IN THIS BOOK. TWO MORE BOOKS UNTIL HARRY ACTUALLY LEARNS THOUGH.

    ok so I think it's safe to say that this is one of my favorites in the series for sure. Probably in the top 3.

    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)!

    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 Rowling..

    All in all

    Sorry for the lame review, readers. I just really don't know what to say..

  • Riley

    This one is still my favorite!

    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 together, this book helped me move on and get through life as so many other books have since.

    As Harry, Ron and Hermione entered their fourth year of Hogwarts, arguably their most challenging and intense year yet, I checked my mail box to see if my invite had finally arrived.

    It hadn’t.

    It still hasn't.

    Maybe one day.

    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 ever

    3. 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 Beauxbatons

    3. 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 Beauxbatons

    5. The Yule Ball and the fact that Harry thinks Hermione is a girl he's never seen before

    6. The fact that Ron has a huge crush on Krum while Hermione stays utterly unimpressed and as soon as Krum takes her to the ball the situation changes, Hermione likes Krum and Ron rips him (well, miniature him) apart

    7. Harry's fight with Ron. Not because I enjoy them fighting but because Jo perfectly captures the feeling of anger and frustration that I have everytime I'm in a similiar situation.

    8. The Wonky Feint. I'm still laughing.

    9. Rita Skeeter's reports. I love to hate her.

    10. Severus Snape cold bloodedly claiming he can't see a difference when Hermione's teeth are half a metre longer than usual. This incredible man.

    11. Molly Weasley being such a good mom to Harry. Got tears in my eyes just thinking about it.

    12. Hermione's triumph over a vicious beetle.

    Still, the book is not my favourite in the series, the reason being the horrible graveyard scene in the end. It's just a little too much to take for my poor Potter heart.

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