HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE
BY JK ROWLING
The summer holidays drag on, and Harry Potter can't wait to return to the magical world of Hogwarts to see his friends, Ron and Hermione, and his beloved headmaster, Dumbledore. In his fourth year at Hogwarts, Harry is now faced with a new challenge. Rumor has it that this year there will be a Triwizard Tournament. It's a skill testing and deadly challenge that guarantees fame and glory for the winner, and everyone is excited at the prospect of this. But there is one problem: The challenge is for those 17 and older. 14-year-old Harry will have to try again next year... or will he? When Harry's name is mysteriously chosen from the Goblet of Fire, tempers escalate and everyone wonders the same thing: What will young Harry do next?
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is the fourth installment in the popular series by JK Rowling. This book delves deep within our imagination, and Rowling tells it with such description that it is extremely easy to picture all of Harry, Ron, and Hermione's adventures. I have no real negative comments for this book, for it has a perfect balance of description and holding the interest of the reader. I was constantly engaged, and marveled at Rowling's imagination of how she so easily conjures a great story. I think the theme of this book is “Bravery Goes a Long Way” because when Harry is outcast from his friends for supposedly cheating to get into the tournament, he powers through it, and has to be brave to get through this great challenge before him. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is looking to step into a magical world of both action and adventure alike.
