Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire: a review by Ellis

Title: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Author: J. K. Rowling
Price: $29.99
Format: Hardcover
Pages: 734

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire sucked.......... JUST KIDDING! THE BOOK ROCKS!! My favorite part of the book is when Harry is flying away from the dragon.  I like that part because it's entertaining and thrilling. 

This book was mostly about the other wizarding schools coming in to Hogwarts for a tournament, the Tri-Wizard Tournament and the betrayal that comes from the three schools. Harry is the fourth contender in the Tri-Wizard tournament, when usually there were only three: one from each school. 

The strengths of the book is that it is entertaining, and when you stop reading (if you ever do), it's a cliffhanger. The book was very thrilling, and it was a very heated story. There was more fighting and the climax was a life and death situation and it was about knowing your spells and being quick thinkers. The ending was reminiscent and Dumbledore dedicated a speech to one of the students. And that's all I can tell you for now.

Rating: 4.5 chocolate bars out of 5 (at points it got boring)
Appropriateness: There is a little bit of vulgar language, kissing and mushy scenes, and lots of violence. I'd recommend it for 8 years old and above.
Cover Thoughts: It told us a little bit about what it was about. It was kind of weird but fun, a very good book.
