Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is the fourth novel of the Harry Potter (HP) series out of the seven books. This book continues with Harry Potter as he competes in the Triwizard competition that was held at Hogwarts. During Halloween, the Goblet of Fire makes its selection of wizards and witches to compete and to everyone’s amazement, Harry name was selected. That caused many uproars and dissatisfactions between the students as the age limit for entering the competition was 17. The competitors faced three death-defying tasks but with the help of his two best friends, Hermione and Ron, Harry might just make through the competition – ALIVE!
I like the complexity of each tasks given to the competitors as it showed the brilliance of working towards achieving the goals. Doing research was essential and supports from friends were vital for Harry to complete the competition. I find that J.K Rowling understand the teenager’s mind when she wrote the argument between Harry and Ron in this book. That heated dispute developed their friendship to a new level as they had a better understanding about each other then on.
However, Harry and Cedric had ego issues when both entered the Triwizard competition. This was due to a quidditch match between their houses in the previous book when Harry lost. The interactions between them showed tension and it had caused their performance to be affected during the whole competition.
I would say that this book was the best compared to the previous books of the series. This book had set the pace of the Harry Potter series due to the thrilling actions and adventures. The well-thought and written book grants the readers to imagine and experience the competition itself. This book defines J.K Rowling style of writing as she never fails to deliver great stories to anyone of different age group.
