Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J. K. Rowling continues the story of a young boy with a very powerful destiny. Harry has returned to school yet again as a fourth year but this year is not meant to be like the year before. Instead, Hogwarts will sponsor the Triwizard Tournament which is a huge honor and the one who wins the competition will be acclaimed. But the Tournament is dangerous and Harry isn’t old enough to compete, so he looks forward to watching with the rest of his school, until his name is pulled out of the goblet as the fourth contestant.


The Tournament

No one understands how Harry’s name got into the goblet at all because he’s too young and they definitely don’t understand how four contestants were pulled out of the goblet but Harry has no choice but to compete. He will have to face tasks designed to terrify older and stronger students than himself and he must also face the entire school (including Ron) who believes he somehow hoodwinked the goblet so he could have a chance at the eternal glory promised to the winner of the Tournament.


It’s going to take more than just skill to win the competition and regain the faith the rest of the school had in him. It’s going to take bravery and it’s going to take luck and most of all it’s going to take being prepared. Someone put Harry’s name in the goblet in a way that ensured it would be picked and that someone has a plan for what will happen at the end. They want to ensure that Harry makes it to the end of the competition but that’s only part of their plan, because Voldemort wants to come back from the dead and he’s going to need Harry to do it.


What will happen to Harry will be anyone’s guess. For most the tasks cause a change but for Harry, they seem to be only showing his strengths. Is Harry strong enough to beat the competition and save everyone he hopes to  save? Because he’s going to need to be prepared for the absolute worst and that means working together with everyone still on his side to come up with a plan. But who is on Harry’s side? Cedric just might be and Hermione is, but Ron just might be lost forever to Harry and Hermione both.

    J. K. Rowling is definitely at it again with Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I absolutely loved this book because it had so much action in it. The first couple books had a lot of them going to classes which was fine and really got you involved in the wizarding world but this one is just non-stop action from the moment the Triwizard Tournament begins until someone is crowned the winner it’s going to take up every moment of the school year but it’s definitely not a competition for the lighthearted. It’s amazing the tasks that they are expected to perform and definitely how they manage them.

    In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire J. K. Rowling has created a new cast of characters but still hasn’t taken away from the characters she already had. The Triwizard Tournament was definitely a new twist to happen at Hogwarts and of course with Voldemort involved it’s never going to go easily. Having Harry compete though definitely made it interesting and then when Voldemort finally showed up it was a crazy type of showdown. I loved the connection between the wands and what happens to Harry and Voldemort as it occurs. Poor Harry never got the chance to see his parents any other way.
