Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

The book begins by Harry getting a letter from the Weasleys asking Harry if he would like to come to the Quidditch World Cup. Delighted Harry asks his mean aunt and uncle Dursley  if he can go. The Dursleys tell him he can go with the Weasleys.

A week later the Weasleys show up to gather Harry and his things but they tried traveling by floo powder Little did they realize the Dursleys have an electric fireplace.

The students from Durmstrang and Beauxbatons arrive on Halloween and enter their names into the impartial judge and wait untill the names are spit out. But then something unexpected happens, A fourth champion is spit out even though the rules say only one student from a school may be champion.
The first challenge Harry overcomes by using a summoning charm on his broomstick. The second task Harry saves the life of his friend Ron from merpeople. But then the third task Harry has to fight an adversary he thought to be dead after fighting through a deadly maze. Then someone he thought was a friend turns out to be an imposter and a supporter of Lord Voldemort. Then they fight in an epic smackdown and like always Harry wins. 

My favorite part of the book was when Dumbledore asked Harry if he put his name in the Goblet Of Fire super calmly while everyone else is freaking out about it. I really like Dumbledore’s character because he is really calm in the face of danger and he's not really mean like Snape and he really acts like a father figure to Harry. I really didn’t like the ending where that one guy died. I thought this part of the book was really sad because this particular character was really nice and tried for a rematch in Quidditch after Harry nearly fell in the dementor attacks. In also thought this was sad because he was really cool and helpful to people and then he gets shot down by Voldemort. I would give this book a 4 out of 5 stars mainly because of the death.

Harry, Hermione, and the Weasleys go to the Quidditch World Cup and are amazed when the team their sporting wins. But then evil strikes and death eaters terrorize the campsites. Mr. Weasley tells them to run and hide in the woods. After running into the woods the spot the dark mark which has not been seen since Voldemort's demise. After the ministry concludes that Mr. Crouch’s elf did it, Harry and his friends go to Hogwarts and get the surprise….. That the triwizard tournament is being hosted at Hogwarts.
