“‘There will be three tasks, spaced throughout the school year, and they will test the champions in many different ways…their magical prowess – their daring – their powers of deduction – and, of course, their ability to cope with danger.'”
Then at Hallowe’en, when the Goblet of Fire makes its selection, Harry Potter is amazed to find his name is one of those that the magical cup picks out.
He will face death-defying tasks, dragons, and dark wizards, but with the help of his best friends, Ron and Hermione,
The facts are that Harry might just make it through – alive!
In this book Harry is about to enter his fourth year at Hogwarts! The book starts with another characters POV who faces off against Voldemort – we see Wormtail has found his master and is back to serving him. Harry then wakes up and we find out what we were witnessing was his dream.
The fact that we are only ever given as much information as Harry has really brings a good sense of mystery to the book. We work through the story, clues and obstacles with him, rather than knowing the ending and waiting for the main character to hurry up and realise.
A good portion of the start of the book is spent on the Quidditch cup – were we learn a lot more about the magical world of wizards. What it would be like growing up with magic always around you, how wizards act in the outside world.
We learn quite a bit about what people do with themselves after they leave school through out this book as well. Back at school they learn about the Triwizard Tournament and.. Someone has entered Harry! But why? Is someone trying to kill Harry? A lot of the teachers think so, including Dumbledore.
Who would go through all this trouble to get Harry? I can think of one person… Highly recommended!
