    Santa Olivia by Jacqueline Carey (whitewavedarling)
    whitewavedarling: Santa Olivia is admittedly built for a more mature audience, but the themes, character types, and situations in the Harry Potter series and in Carey's work make me believe a reader who enjoys one will likely enjoy the other. Santa Olivia, though, is not a traditional fantasy, but more in the lines of speculative fiction, so that fantasy-only readers who enjoy Harry Potter for primarily the inclusion of magic may not enjoy Carey's work. I'm recommending it with this Harry Potter book in particular since, for me, this was the book when the series took a leap toward becoming more adult. Santa Olivia is also probably the beginning of a forthcoming series.… (more)

Book #4 of the Harry Potter series, in this book Harry faces the Triwizard Tournament - a potentially lethal competition in which each of three wizarding schools displays how much they know through practical application. There are more emotional complication sin this book than the other three, as well a an introduction of unsolved problems and mysteries that will play their way out in the coming books.
Upon re-reading this book, and having completed the series before, I was struck with the amount of intimate detail and foreshadowing. I really have to hand it to Ms. Rowling, she wrote a quality piece of literature that, even having obtained a bachelors in English Literature, still captivates my mind and imagination today. I find these books never cease to amaze me, with the plot, detail, characterization, and twists. I love how they're told primarily from Harry's perspective without being too exclusive of the other characters, and I also love how the emotions of a scared 11 year old are conveyed so well. Every single character is a quality piece. Coming to the end of the series, even re-reading it now, still makes me sad. I find this one to be the turning point book: gone are the happy endings, everyone getting out of the scrapes they find themselves in. Though the tournament itself seems to be all in good fun, it is still very dangerous - a good metaphor for life, really, when one comes to think about it. ( )

Harry Potter continues to be one of the favorite books for all ages. It can be used with older elementary children to create an ABC book based on Harry Potter. Used in higher grade levels for comparing and contrasting, learning about mythology, creating their own mythical creatures, or stories.

Harry is at the Dursleys, again. This time Ron and his brothers take him away and to the Quidditch World Cup. At the World Cup death eaters come and cast the Dark Mark into the sky. The death eaters burned down everyones tents and caused havoc. Harry and the Weasleys luckily escaped. When they got to Hogwarts the draws for the Tri-Wizard Tournament were starting. The people selected were Cedric Digory (Hogwarts), Fleur Delecore (Beauxbatons), Viktor Krum (Durmstrang), and mysteriously Harry got in too. Their first task was to take a golden egg from a dragon. Of course Harry got the Hungarian Horntail, the toughest dragon he could get. Harry got the egg and Cedric gave him a clue on what it does later. Harry got a clue from the egg for the next challenge, Moaning Myrtle helped too. The next challenge was that you have to rescue a treasure in your life, Harry had to rescue Ron, his best friend. Harry had to dive into a lake and save him, Neville gave him Gilly Weed so he could breathe under water. Harry dove in and dodged all the monsters trying to get him, he got to Ron saved him and then he had to save Fleur Delecore's sister too. The final challenge was the maze. Harry was alone, he ran into Viktor Krum. Viktor seemed to be bewitched, Harry ran. He turned the corner and saw the Tri-Wizard Cup, right there! Harry could win, he grabbed the cup at the exact same time as Cedric and it turns out it was a Portkey, or a teleporter. Harry and Cedric met Voldemort where the cup brought them, Voldemort killed Cedric and Harry luckily escaped, death again.

HARRY POTTER IS AMAZING. I think as soon as people can read at a decent level. This goes up in my top three book series', Percy Jackson, and the Maze Runner. Harry Potter has a good lexile and reading score. Harry Potter is a good "big book" to start with I think. I definitely recommend these books to everyone. ( )

The fantasy writer's job is to conduct the willing reader from mundanity to magic. This is a feat of which only a superior imagination is capable, and Rowling possesses such equipment.
 
Tras otro abominable verano con los Dursley, Harry se dispone a iniciar el cuarto curso en Hogwarts, la famosa escuela de magia y hechicería. A sus catorce años, a Harry le gustaría ser un joven mago como los demás y dedicarse a aprender nuevos sortilegios, encontrarse con sus amigos Ron y Hermione y asistir con ellos a los Mundiales de quidditch. Sin embargo, al llegar al colegio le espera una gran sorpresa que lo obligará a enfrentarse a los desafíos más temibles de toda su vida. Si logra superarlos, habrá demostrado que ya no es un niño y que está preparado para vivir las nuevas y emocionantes experiencias que el futuro le depara.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0439139597, Hardcover)

In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, J.K. Rowling offers up equal parts danger and delight--and any number of dragons, house-elves, and death-defying challenges. Now 14, her orphan hero has only two more weeks with his Muggle relatives before returning to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Yet one night a vision harrowing enough to make his lightning-bolt-shaped scar burn has Harry on edge and contacting his godfather-in-hiding, Sirius Black. Happily, the prospect of attending the season's premier sporting event, the Quidditch World Cup, is enough to make Harry momentarily forget that Lord Voldemort and his sinister familiars--the Death Eaters--are out for murder.

Readers, we will cast a giant invisibility cloak over any more plot and reveal only that You-Know-Who is very much after Harry and that this year there will be no Quidditch matches between Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin. Instead, Hogwarts will vie with two other magicians' schools, the stylish Beauxbatons and the icy Durmstrang, in a Triwizard Tournament. Those chosen to compete will undergo three supreme tests. Could Harry be one of the lucky contenders?

But Quidditch buffs need not go into mourning: we get our share of this great game at the World Cup. Attempting to go incognito as Muggles, 100,000 witches and wizards converge on a "nice deserted moor." As ever, Rowling magicks up the details that make her world so vivid, and so comic. Several spectators' tents, for instance, are entirely unquotidian. One is a minipalace, complete with live peacocks; another has three floors and multiple turrets. And the sports paraphernalia on offer includes rosettes "squealing the names of the players" as well as "tiny models of Firebolts that really flew, and collectible figures of famous players, which strolled across the palm of your hand, preening themselves." Needless to say, the two teams are decidedly different, down to their mascots. Bulgaria is supported by the beautiful veela, who instantly enchant everyone--including Ireland's supporters--over to their side. Until, that is, thousands of tiny cheerleaders engage in some pyrotechnics of their own: "The leprechauns had risen into the air again, and this time, they formed a giant hand, which was making a very rude sign indeed at the veela across the field."

Long before her fourth installment appeared, Rowling warned that it would be darker, and it's true that every exhilaration is equaled by a moment that has us fearing for Harry's life, the book's emotions running as deep as its dangers. Along the way, though, she conjures up such new characters as Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody, a Dark Wizard catcher who may or may not be getting paranoid in his old age, and Rita Skeeter, who beetles around Hogwarts in search of stories. (This Daily Prophet scoop artist has a Quick-Quotes Quill that turns even the most innocent assertion into tabloid innuendo.) And at her bedazzling close, Rowling leaves several plot strands open, awaiting book 5. This fan is ready to wager that the author herself is part veela--her pen her wand, her commitment to her world complete. (Ages 9 and older) --Kerry Fried
