Harry Potter y el cáliz de fuego (Harry Potter #4)
Tras otro abominable verano con los Dursley, Harry se dispone a iniciar el cuarto curso en Hogwarts, la famosa escuela de magia y hechicería. A sus catorce años, a Harry le gustaría ser un joven mago como los demás y dedicarse a aprender nuevos sortilegios, encontrarse con sus amigos Ron y Hermione y asistir con ellos a los Mundiales de quidditch. Sin embargo, al llegar al...more

I seriously have no idea why I still review these books when I have nothing new to say. I mean... J.K. Rowling is perfect. This series is perfect. And I dream day & night of going to Hogwarts. So what I'm going to do is, I'm going to show you how I felt about this book:
When I started the book:
During the book:
At the end:
Umm.. Mam Rowling..
All in all
Sorry for the lame review, readers. I just really don't know what to say..
I don't know if anyone on goodreads followed the intense Harry Potter fanbase core in the good old days. I wasn't on goodreads until after the last book came out. Goblet of Fire was the last Harry Potter book before all of the bitching naysayers. It was never as much fun after that, either to discuss theories or pick apart...more
I quickly got through 200 pages, but it was then that I came to the same crisis I always do when reading a Harry Potter book: Do I really want to go...more
Greetings, loved ones, and let us talk of a young witch named Hermione Granger.
Hermione is, and always has been, a delight to read. Not necessarily because she's a girl, but because she is the only character amongst those 14 year olds who actually has a good head on her shoulders.
When I was young and gullible, I hated this book. Hated how it killed off Cedric and how bloody the series got afterwards. I hated it enough to renounce the franchize. Now...more
I loved Prisoner of Azkaban. Great struggle, clever time-travel story (very hard to do) and our first real glimpses of the dark places where this series would head. I liked that shift, I really did. So what broke me?
Firstly, the plot holes. Well, more accurately, one plot hole, but it was a frackin' doozy. You know the opening scene in Star Wars where the came...more
* Hermione's disgust at the reception for the veela (Bulgarian National Team Mascots) at the Quidditch World Cup. Rowling's fourth book addresses issues about growing up--the dynamic between the boys and girls at Hogwarts starts to change. Nowhere is this more plain than the hilarious scene in which magical cheerleaders nearly convince Harry and Ron to jump from the stands to impress them.
* Viktor Krum's crush on Hermione--and Ron's objection to it.
* Malfoy's "Potter...more
This was the turning point. Where the books ceased to be books and instead became a lifestyle. Where not only did I laugh, but also cried my eyes out. Where the Hogwarts students became MY friends. MY family. This was when I knew there was no going back and I was committed to the end.
"It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be."
(And The Doctor was in the movie version - so BONUS!)
The result is a giant mess. She's got a Quidditch World Cup happening; she's got the crazy Triwizard Tournament, and all its machinations; she's got Harry's hormones starting to rage; she...more
I adore this book. It's probably one of my favourite in the series.
It's funny in parts, full of action and when it gets to the climax.
The climax of the book is enough to blow folks' head off.
Yes, it's a long heavy book, but I don't care. I like that about it.
Read this again last month 8/2011
This is the book that makes you realize it's ON. Don't let the happy cover fool you, for these covers are way too ridiculously happ...more
I've actually been considering doing a video about my feels on Goblet of Fire, so I wont say too much more, but I really enjoyed reading this.. It took me awhile to read it, but I loved that.. I loved just spending my time, no rush, with Harry and the Gang.
We see Harry go through some real challenges in this book, and not just the ones that Voldy cooked up through his devious evility, but challenges that any normal teen may go through... jealousy, a strained-to-the-breaking-point friendship, a crush, and bullying... and that's a day in Harry's life BEFORE anyone tries to kill him.
There's something about these books that just pulls my heartstrin...more
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Who else remembers seeing this monster for the first time? I believe I was in the 8th grade when it made its debut. Now, I was not quite old...more
So yeah, HARRY FREAKING POTTER. If you haven't been reading my reviews of the past three books––yes, I'm reading them for the first time. I know, shocking. Whenever people see me reading the...more
He's just so precious! There were so many funn...more
This is it. Now is when shit just gets real. Now is when HP becomes something more than just a magical story with lovely characters... . Feelings and lost and tragedy and hope.
“It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be.”
Thanks for the lesson, lovely J.K. Rowling. I tried to be my best. Still do.
But this one is just different, this one showed me the brilliance of Rowling. I absolutely loved how she utilized everything she established previously, and at the same time introduced many new characters, and in the process, crea...more
Here's some general stuff (that is, not specific to this installment):
Someone mentioned that Hagrid's indiscretion is recklessly dangerous or something. . . it kind of is, but I don't think he's as dangerous as Dumbledore. Here's why:
Big D* has about a bajillion opportunities to tell Harry everything he needs to know, and withholding information results in a whole lot more...more
