The fourth book in the Harry Potter franchise sees Harry returning for his fourth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, along with his friends, Ron and Hermione . There is an upcoming tournament between the three major schools of magic, with one participant selected from each school by the Goblet of Fire. When Harry's name is drawn, even though he is not eligible and is a fourth player, he must compete in the dangerous contest.

The book where the Harry Potter series gets dark, do not buy new

3 stars

Of the seven books in the Harry Potter series, this is the one I have the strongest sense of encountering it on its release night. As a construct of words in an order that tells a story, it is enjoyable. I, however, do not endorse purchasing the book new given that the author will use the money to advance an anti-trans platform

Some other inconsequential events.

I have one consistent comment about these books, especially as an educator: Who the fuck is running these schools and allowing contests that you can't back out of to exist? It'd be nice to have a more in-world explanation for why these things are allowed, especially seeing as Rowling relies almost entirely on the currently existing status quo. ("Oh, imagine if we had real schools but also dragon contests!") It mostly feels quite dull, especially for a magical school.

This is also one of the more frustrating books for me in terms of the amount of time that is spent on things that often feel irrelevant. I'm supposed to feel something for Cedric, and I never do. There's nothing there for me other than some weird lesson about how being a nice person who wants to share in winning an event leads to the death of another. His existence feels …

Review of 'Ο Χάρι Πότερ και το κύπελλο της φωτιάς' on 'Goodreads'

Έχει το ενδιαφέρον του το "Κύπελλο της φωτιάς". Εισάγει νέους χαρακτήρες, θίγει (εξαιρετικά αφελώς) τις συνθήκες εργασίας του προσωπικού του Χόγκουαρτς (των ξωτικών που παρασκευάζουν τα φαγητά) με την Ερμιόνη να το υπερασπίζεται (η μόνη! Οι άλλοι στην κοσμάρα τους), αναπτύσσει στην πλοκή και τσακωσμούς, μούτρα και ζήλιες μεταξύ των πρωταγωνιστών και επίσης υπάρχει νεκρός. Η Ρόουλινγκ, η συγγραφέας, πάντως σε όλα τα βιβλία της έχει ωραίους διαλόγους, ωραίους μονολόγους και εναλλαγές αυτών.

3 stars

Well I had high hopes for this book seeing as it was far longer than the previous books, alas those extra pages were filled with guff. The Quidditch world cup! Then it was back to school and the usual stuff. It's not all bad though, once the charismatic Voldemort makes an appearance things take a dark turn, the writing suddenly gets better and the story becomes interesting. Limbs getting dismembered, kidnapping, slavery and child murder, that Rowling has some balls to put that into a kids book.

I can start to feel the Harry Potter books digging their claws into me now as I've now read plenty about the characters and have got to know them well. I think I only called Harry an idiot 3 times in this book, far less than the previous books.

I suppose I better keep on going to the end.

PS: this is the …

We return to Hogwarts with lots of changes for Harry this year. First, the Tri-Wizard tournament. Very exciting. We get a glimpse of other wizarding schools. Tragedy strikes, and we end with a very satisfying set up for book 5.

We kick this installment off with the fun of the Quidditch World Cup. Harry attends with the Weasleys and has lots of fun until dark things happen, setting us up for what is to come. Harry is selected as a champion for the Tri-Wizard tournament. But, gasp! He didn't enter his name because he's not 17. As Fleur says, he's just a little boy! Danger abounds. And in the end, we are in a very dark place to take us into the next book.

Have decided to re-read the entire series. Will not change the original star ratings, but will include my updated star ratings in the wall o' text.

4 (???) stars. Maybe 3? 3.5?
So much Harry, not enough Ron and Hermione. And I feel like the challenges should be harder, or more numerous, or something. And SOOOO much telling, not showing -- the scenes in the graveyard and Moody's office are filled with amazing and interesting info, presented in the dullest way possible. But I love how grownup all the kids begin to feel here, such that they begin to discover some of the complexities in the adults around them, and how dark it turns toward the end. Definitely not the best of the series but I loved it anyway... Thus the rating dilemma.
