Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire: Countdown Post #4
Okay, so I got a little behind in my countdown. The movie comes out at midnight tonight. Oh well. The fourth book in the Harry Potter series is Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. In this book Harry gets to go with the Weasleys to see the Quidditch world cup. But everyone freaks out when the dark mark appears in the sky. Plus everyone is saying that something exciting is going to happen at Hogwarts this year. And sure enough when Harry arrives at Hogwarts, they announce that the Triwizard Tournament which hasn't been held in years due to death incidents, is going to take place this year. Everyone is excited at the arrival of the two rival schools, Durmstrang and Beauxbatons. And finally the night comes when the Goblet of Fire will pick the name of the three who compete. The three champions are chosen, but then another name comes out of the cup. And the name is.... Harry Potter. This book has it all. Dragons, merpeople, blast-ended skrewts, nosy journalists, a fight with a friend, and possibly an encounter with Voldemort. I recommend this book for ages 11 and up. Author: J. K. Rowling. Release date: 2000 On a scale of 1 being not so good, and 10 being the very best book I've ever read, I rate this book a 10.
