ROWLING, Joanne Kahtleen (2000), Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Bloomsbury.
By Patricia Maldonado 1º Bachillerato B, EFL
The Triwizard Tournament is being celebrated this year in Hogwarts, between the schools of Beauxbatons, Durmstrang and, for sure, Hogwarts. Underaged students cannot participate, but someone puts Harry Potter's name in the Goblet of Fire and he is selected as the fourth wizard.
Dragons, unexpected creatures and unexpected feelings between some of the characters will make a year full of hard emotions and near dangers. The Daily Prefect, the wizards' newspaper, gives a new image of Harry, which is not very realistic. In the last challenge Voldemort reappears and he and Harry fight. Finally, Harry escapes from him and takes Cedric Digory's body (who had saved him before dying) to his father. Then Harry understands that a new life, a warrior life, will begin for him.
The part that I liked the best is when Ron is very jealous of Victor in the Christmas Eve Dance, and he and Hermione begin to argue until she tells him that if he had been more courageous and had asked her before Victor she would have accepted.
I recommend this book to everyone because it's beautiful the way that it introduces you in a world where everything is possible, as the part Harry fights against the Dark Lord by the power of his faith in his parents and friends.
