it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction

** spoiler alert ** As long as this was, I couldn't help but feel that it could have been longer. The mysteries behind Rita Skeeter as well as the Weasley twins and their relationship with Bagman, both felt very rushed. Nevertheless, I greatly enjoyed the tournament. I especially liked the parallels between the ways in which he was forced into a task intended for older people and his own awkward personal maturation. He must straddled the divide between youth and adolescence both in the tournament and in his interactions with his friends and the opposite sex.

I also enjoyed the complexity of the plot, which kept Voldemort's involvement front-and-center, without ever revealing his goals until the end. His machinations (and those of Barty Crouch) to get to Harry do seem a bit more intricate than necessary, but I enjoyed them nonetheless.
