SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love how J.K. Rowling made "Mad-Eye Moody" (who is actually Barty Crouch, Jr.) seem so innocent and then unrolled the truth. Voldemort has risen again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I really liked this book because it had a lot of detail. My favourite part was when in the third task of the tournament when the cup was revealed as a portkey. I also, enjoyed when they were hearing how Barty Crouch JR had escaped askaban. Overall, I don't have any feedback about this book.

The movie is good, but the book is great. So much more depth and detail added to the story of Harry Potter's fourth year at Hogwarts. I'd seen the movie a couple of times, but I understand what's going on now that I've read the book. Highly recommended for tweens, teens, and adults.

This is my second favorite book in the series, after The Half-Blood Prince. This is where things really start to get cracking in the HP series. It's got some of the best adventure scenes out of any of the books in the series, lots of character progression, and an incredibly intense ending. If you're soldiering through the first three, keep going- it all starts to pay off here.

" Curiosity is not a sin" he said. " but we should exercise caution with our curiosity...yes, indeed.." ~ Professor Albus Dumbledor
" What's comin' will come, an' we'll meet meet it when it comes"~ Hagrid

"Well, if you don't like it, you know what the solution is, don't you?" Yelled Hermione; her hair was coming down out of its elegant bun now, and her face was screwed up in anger.
"Oh yeah?" Ron yelled back. "What's that?"
"Next time there's a ball, ask me before someone else does, and not as a last resort!"
Ron mouthed soundlessly like a goldfish out of water as Hermione turned on her heel and stormed up the girls' staircase to bed. Ron turned to look at Harry.
"Well," he sputtered, looking thunderstruck, "well--just that just proves--completely missed the point--"
Harry didn't say anything. He liked being back on speaking terms with Ron too much to speak his mind right now--but he somehow through that Hermione had gotten the point much better than Ron had.

"What you fail to recognize, is that it matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be."
-Albus Dumbledore

"If you want to know what a man is like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals."
-Sirius Black

"Remember Cedric. Remember, if the time should come when you have to make a choice between what is right and what is easy, remember what happened to a boy who was good, and kind, and brave, because he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort. Remember Cedric Diggory."
-Albus Dumbledore

"What will come, will come, and you'll just have to meet it when it does..."
-Hagrid

MAJOR SPOILER ALERT!!!!!

The book opens up with the spying on Voldemort by muggle Frank Bryce. He manages to hear as far that Voldemort's deepest desire was to murder a boy named Harry Potter, whoever he was, and he had killed in the past with no remorse-before he was discovered and killed himself. The boy who was also spying, though unconsciously, and in his sleep, the very person who was target of Voldemort's murderous desires, was not discovered.

Harry became incredibly worried at this vision and that his lightning scar, mark of the first, but certainly far from last, attempt at slaughtering him by Voldemort. Was Voldemort growing stronger, as all signs seemed to indicate? Harry didn't dwell on it for about two days (spent by the Weasleys and watching the Quidditch World Cup). But at the end of that he was seriously alarmed and alert, because Voldemort's sign, the Dark Mark, had appeared again after thirteen years, after a riot which was heavily suspected of being made by the remainder of the Death Eaters (Voldemort's supporters). His fears weren't baseless either, as somebody had put his name into the Goblet of Fire against his will, and Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody, dulusional ex-Auror thought someone had done it to get him killed in the process.

Somebody has placed Harry Potter's name in the Goblet of Fire. As an underage wizard to play in the Triwizard Tournament, he is chosen as a champion and must participate in it. These stages may mean death and somebody wants Potter dead - and that person is within Hogwarts. This mystery and light romance book is the start of Voldemort's return. Find out more by digging yourself into the entire Harry Potter series!

Harry Potter starts his fourth year at Hogwarts with a shocking turn of events - Hogwarts is hosting the Triwizard tournament, where three witches and/or wizards compete in an epic battle to claim the Triwizard cup. When Harry unexpectedly becomes the fourth champion of this competition, he is shocked. Who put Harry's name in the Goblet of Fire, the cup in which Dumbledore (the headmaster) draws the names of the contestants who compete from the three schools (Hogwarts, Beauxbatons, Durmstrang) ? And why does his scar throb so painfully? Mysteries await in this fourth installment to the Harry Potter series, mysteries that end in something unspeakable.

Harry Potter as he wakes in the night with a throbbing pain in his scar. The next morning, Harry's Uncle Vernon receives a letter from the Weasleys asking Harry to join them at the Quidditch World Cup, and reluctantly agrees to let Harry go. Harry is brought to The Burrow the next day. Early the next morning, the Weasleys, Harry and Hermione head off to the Quidditch World Cup. They travel by Portkey, an object which wizards use to travel quickly to another linked destination. While traveling, they meet Cedric Diggory, another Hogwarts student. At their seat, Harry, Ron, and Hermione meet Winky, a house-elf who says she is saving a seat for her master, Bartemius 'Barty' Crouch. That night, after the game, a crowd of Death Eaters (followers of Voldemort) destroy the campground and torture its Muggle owners. Harry, Hermione and Ron escape by fleeing into the woods, where Harry discovers that his wand is missing. Moments later, someone fires Voldemort's symbol, the Dark Mark, using Harry's wand. Winky is found holding Harry's wand at the scene of the crime; Mr Crouch fires her as punishment for associating his name with the Dark Mark. Later at the Burrow, Cedric's father brings news that a man named Mad-Eye Moody attacked an intruder at his house, forcing Arthur to sort it out.
Upon arriving at Hogwarts, Professor Dumbledore announces that the Triwizard Tournament will take place at Hogwarts throughout the school year. The Tournament is a competition between three delegates, or "champions", one from each of the three great European schools of magic - Hogwarts, Beauxbatons, and Durmstrang. These champions compete in three tasks and they are given scores by the judges based on their performance
