Book Review: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Title: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Author: J.K. Rowling
Publisher: Scholastic
Genre: Fantasy, Fiction
Pages: 734

This is the fourth book of the Harry Potter series. There are seven books in the series: This book has also been converted into a movie.

In this book, there is an event that has not taken place for hundreds of years. It is called the Tri-Wizard Tournament. It is where three wizard schools come together. From each school there is a Tri-wizard champion chosen. The champions are selected by the Goblet of Fire through magic. The three Tri-wizard champions compete in three dangerous challenges. When Harry goes to Hogwarts, the Ministry has said that only kids seventeen and up can be chosen as the champions. When all three champions are chosen, the Goblet of Fire chooses Harry as the next champion, even though he is under seventeen. That means somebody else has put Harry’s name in. The rules are set. Can Harry survive the dangerous tasks that will be given ?

My favorite character in this book is Dumbledore, who is Hogwarts best head master. I like him in this book because, he has attempted to help Harry, even though sometimes he fails. Also I like Dumbledore because, he is very brave. For example, he has the courage to stand up to members of the Ministry. My last reason why I like Dumbledore is that he is loving, caring, kind, and has many other good character traits.

I thought that this book was superb. As I read the book, I could tell that J.K. Rowling really thought about the book. I gave it a 9.5/10 because J.K. Rowling wrote a lot of details that made me understand the book better. Secondly, I liked the book because, J.K. Rowling used good word choice. I had to use my context clues to find out what the word was. Context clues is where you try to understand the word by reading before and after the word. I thought in this book there were not many funny parts. I think J.K. Rowling should have added more humor. That is why I reduced the rating to a 9.5. All in all I really liked this book very much and I can’t wait to read the next one.

I would recommend this book to people who love twists. Also I would recommend this book to people who love dragons and other unknown creatures.
