So far my favorite of the Harry Potter Series (I'm in the 5th book right now). Finally the series has started to get a bit darker, which is the way I like it. The plot is more complex than the previous books, and more interesting. One thing that really bugs me about the book though, and I had the same complaint about the movie, is that it never explains adequately enough for me WHY Potter HAD to compete in the Triwizard Tournament, even though he wasn't 17. I mean, why couldn't he be disqualified? What would have been the consequences if he had been, or if he simply had tried to drop out? I also thought it was kind-of dumb how none of the teachers seemed to foresee the possibility that someone over age 17 might try to submit a name of someone else under age 17. It's a glaring loophole. No one foresaw it? And no one thought of doing it besides just one person? Come on! Still a great book though and still so far the best in the series. Oh, and another problem I had was the lack of security at the Quiddich World Cup. None of those Death Eaters were caught? Come on!!!
