Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire [Review]

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Harry Potter, #4) 

#4 in HP series
734 pages
Published 8 July 2000

Harry wants to get away from the pernicious Dursleys and go to the International Quidditch Cup with Hermione, Ron, and the Weasleys. He wants to dream about Cho Chang, his crush (and maybe do more than dream). He wants to find out about the mysterious event that's supposed to take place at the Hogwarts this year, an event involving two other rival schools of magic, and a competition that hasn't happened in a hundred years. He wants to be a normal, fourteen year old wizard. Unfortunately for Harry Potter, he's not normal - even by wizarding standards.

And in his case, different can be deadly.

My Thoughts:
This is my least favorite book of the series, however, it is still a very good book. Especially the last 10 chapters. They are unbelievable and I'd be surprised if anyone who read the book could put it down and not finish out the book in those last chapters.

Last Review:
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (#3) by JK Rowling [HERE]

Next Book:
Before I Go To Sleep by SJ Watson (Clamhouse Book Club - September book)

My least favorite was Order of the Phoenix--it was just too long for the story it told, at least IMO.

It's been a long time since I read HP... maybe I should put them in my TBR pile, hehe.

HP4 is one of my lesser favorites too, but I say that with the understanding that I love the whole series so much. :) I just finished listening to the second book last night for the first time in a while and had forgotten just how funny and ridiculous Gilderoy Lockhart was.
