I've only read 5 of the Harry Potter book series so far, but I would definitely recommend reading them. J.K. Rowling is an astonishing writer and what I love most about the way she writes is the way she makes the characters relatable, for example, Harry Potter is not a perfect person, he has many flaws, even though so far in the books I've read he's been the hero and saved the day...so yeah I would definitely recommend reading the Harry Potter books!!!!
Harry Potter and the goblet of fire review Author-J.K Rowling This book is in the Harry Potter series so people would be a fan of this book . This book shows how the Triwizard tournament is held at Hogwarts and Harry , though underage gets selected for the tournament. There are many interesting parts in this book but the most interesting part I found was , when Barty Crouch Jr. told the truth about how he entered Hogwarts and explained that how he escaped Azkaban,under the trance of Veritaserum (the truth potion). The most horrifying part was when Cedric died and when Voldemort got his body back. The funniest part was when Lavender and Parvati started laughing at the mention of the Yule Ball by Professor Mcgonagall. My overal opinion: It's quite positive. This is also my favourite book in the Harry Potter series till now.It is just totally fantastic.I give this book five out of five stars.Harshit Gupta
Unlike most others I am reading Harry Potter for the first time now and AFTER watching the films. I really must say that TGOF is by far the best book in the series so far. I have since read up to TOOTP but this is still head and shoulders above the rest. Rowling's descriptive narrative has deepened and become far more enriched with colour. The characters also come into their own and are far more alive here than ever. Harry's on strength is also explained in more detail here which helps the reader understand just why he has been able to do what he has done and survived a would be fatal attack. His tapestry of experiences is also beautifully varied with the scenes Rowling sets equally so.
A longer, better, stronger, at least as fun, Harry Potter book, with more excitement, another puzzle, and a little more revelation fo why Harry is so special in the world of magic. Voldemort himself makes a much stronger appearance in this book than he has before, and his battle with Harry is as tense to read as Harry's bit of trouble with the basilisk in the "Chamber of Secrets". Harry, Ron, Hermione and friends seem to be growing up a little quicker than they ought with the timing of the books ~ in fact, one of the few complaints i had about "Goblet" is that Harry seems to vary in age from thirteen to fifteen, in rather uncertain fashion, within the single year the book encompasses. Certainly the preoccupations of teenage years, most especially the opposite gender, have taken a more prominent position in this book than previously. Once again, Rowling's characters are, within their world, entirely believable in their actions and reactions, both as predictable and unpredictable as real people, and this is, for me, the truest test of a book. Unlike many other fads and must-haves ~ Pokémon springs to mind ~ the latest Harry Potter book is worth all the kerfuffle and fuss it has caused.
I highly recommend anything by J.K Rowling. She is an incredibly talented writer and this book is certainly no exception. Anyone who has seen the films really SHOULD read the books. The originals are so much better and you get to find out a lot of extra bits that aren't in the films.
The book arrived in peak condition, as if it had just been made!!
The biggest of the series and a lot of information in one book. An interesting read and great in the series. JK Rowling is a credit to children and adult fiction. It reads fluently from page to page. It opens people's imagination and a whole new world is awakened.
I have always loved the Harry Potter series. I know it is marketed as a children's book, but I have always found that line pretty stretched. There is a good bit of life stress, terror and death for children's stories, unless you find the Grimm's fairy tales relaxing. J.K. Rowling has created a wonderful magical world and Stephen Fry's dramatic reading is absolutely brilliant. In the US, there is an "Americanized" reading available, which is rubbish. Get the Stephen Fry version.
