    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)

OK, this was worth re-reading the series for. The bulk of this large book centres on the event of the century, when the three wizarding schools come together for the tri-wizard tournament, when a champion from each school takes on 3 tasks for the honour of the school and a pot of gold. Someone with ill intent makes sure that Harry's name is added to the goblet which selects the champions and so the adventure begins. He faces a series of tasks that take all his skill and he recieves help form a number of sources. There is, obviously, more to it than just that and the last few chapters are quite intense. There is significant emotional impact and the end of the book is much darker than the previous books have been. ( )

This was a good follow-up to Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. ( )

Harry is about 14-15 years old and is attending to the fourth year at Hogwarts. He wake ups seeing Voldemort and Wormtail murdering an house keeper for the Riddles house. Harry,Ron,and Hermione attend the Quidditch World Cup where they were attacked by Death Eaters (Followers of Lord Voldemort). When they arrived to Hogwarts Dumbledore takes a speech about the Triwizard Cup and you have to be 17 and older to compete against the other school (Beauxbatons and Durmstrang). Harry's name come out of the cup so he is to compete against the other champions for the Triwizard Cup. Harry completes the first and second task Harry has to finish the third task and it is hard, Harry is to go into maze to get the Triwizard Cup. Harry and Cedric finish together but Cedric is killed by Wormtail. Lord Voldemort is reincarnated,Harry brings back Cedric's dead body, and it turns out that Professor Mad-eye Moody is a fate and the real identity is no other then Barty Crouch Jr! Then Harry continues his story by going to his aunt and uncles house for the summer until the next school year.

This is one of my personal favorite books, because the author put so much detail into the book it made it interesting to read. Every chapter in this book caught my attention to wonder what will happen next in the next chapter. This book is the best I would love to read the next book to see what happens next in Harry Potter series. ( )

I had forgotten SOOOO much. I’m so glad I’m rereading the series via audiobook. I am full of joy and squee and love for this series. I’ll spare you the rambling. ( )

I loved this book! Out of the first four books, this one is the best and the three that preceded this one were excellent! It's nice to have seen the movies BEFORE reading. As you read, you can see Alan Rickman as Snape and hear his voice. Every nuance, every inflection, every little move... and it makes reading these books all the better. It's always so difficult to see a movie after reading a great book because we're consistently let down due to dramatic deviations. In this installment, there were more deviations in the movie from the book so after reading The Goblet of Fire, I came away feeling like I don't want to leave Hogwarts! Can't hardly wait to start reading The Order of the Phoenix tomorrow. ( )

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
