Read in June, 2012 — I own a copy

So I reread this book once again and decided that I still love it.
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.

More later.

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 happy considering what Harry goes through in this book.
It's bad enough he's forced into the Triwizard tournament against his will. And what kind of people allow CHILDREN to participate in something so dangerous? The wizarding world is sick, and this is the book that makes you understand this.
He survives one event after the other, not knowing what's really in store for him. Not knowing that this is the book that starts the battle Harry has been preparing for his whole life.

Also, the movie of this book is the WORSE. It's terrible! I know it's hard to condense a book this thick, rich and creamy into a movie, but it's like they took an orange, scooped out the pulp, put water in the skin and high fructose corn syrup and ruddy fake orange flavor and stuck a straw in it! They cut all of the strongest, best scenes and added stupid tacked on scenes that did nothing for the story! Avoid the movie. Read the dang book! It does not take that much effort to read a book with hundreds of pages and it's so enjoyable, funny, poignant and just plan good!


I read it again, now the only problem I have with this book was A. When Harry is in the pond, can anyone see anything? Are they just sitting there watching boring water? B. Can they see what is going on in the maze? Didn't they see Harry and Cedric disappear?

05/31 "Hermione means well with SPEW but if you're going to advocate for people LISTEN to what they want. ASK them what they need. And shut up and listen to them too. That's the mistake groups like autism speaks makes. They don't listen to autistic people. Or if you have a gay rights group that doesn't listen to gay people. Or when people don't listen to trans people. LISTEN. LEARN. I like the subtlety of this."

Choco I didn't like the movie either. The maze part was just... WTF.
The graveyard scene... didn't even look like a graveyard.

Synesthesia no, the only good part besides everyone's hair looking cool was when the Angel came to life and trapped Harry.
Other than that, it really was not that well done! And the MAZE! AUGH!

Choco Ahaha, I agree.
