Tell Me About It
Harry Potter is midway through both his training as a wizard and his coming of age. Harry wants to get away from the pernicious Dursleys and go to the International Quidditch Cup with Hermione, Ron, and the Weasleys. He wants to dream about Cho Chang, his crush (and maybe do more than dream). He wants to find out about the mysterious event that supposed to take place at Hogwarts this year, an event involving two other rival schools of magic, and a competition that hasn't happened for hundreds of years. He wants to be a normal, fourteen-year-old wizard. But unfortunately for Harry Potter, he's not normal - even by wizarding standards.
And in his case, different can be deadly
Tell Me About It
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is the fourth book in this series, and for me is possibly one of the most pivotal books in the series, it's the turning point for Voldemort and when we really start to see both sides beginning to divide.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire took me longer to get through than expected, but I wanted to make sure I listened to every second of it. Listening to this really makes me realise how much was missed out in the movies, especially since its been years since I last picked up this series. I loved SPEW, enjoyed getting to see more of Dobby, and also meet Winky, it's amazing how much you realise was missed out when you re-read a book.

The whole idea of the Triwizard Tournament was a great way to introduce other schools into this series, as well as some new characters. I really enjoyed every aspect to this books, from the tournament, to Christmas with Dobby, and even the lessons. Admittedly I really got annoyed with Rita Skeeter and her scheming ways and was happy to see her gone.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire never fails to make me cry of the death of a character and how fast and uncalled for it is. The backlash from this event is just the fuel to the fire for some people, while others choose to ignore it. I love the twists and turns of this story, leaving you guessing over what will happen next, and I already have the next book lined up ready to me listened to.

Finale Verdict
The Harry Potter series gets better and better with each new book, and this just makes me more excited to continue on with these right to the end.
