“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 Quidditch World 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’s 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.”
Such a great book!!
J.K. Rowling really knows how to make me laugh, cry, and absolutely make my day.
The whole idea of the Triwizard tournament is just so interesting. A tournament where you never know what will happen in each of the three tasks. The first task kept me on the edge of my seat. Risking your life to battle dragons in front of an entire school to capture an egg (that holds a clue to the second task) is just amazing.
The second task was interesting. With the clue being “Come seek us where are voices sound, We cannot sing above ground, And while you’re searching, ponder this: We’ve taken what you’ll surely miss, An hour long you’ll have to look, And to recover what we took, But past an hour- the prospect’s black, Too late, it’s gone, it won’t come back.” That gave me the chills. Thinking that if the champions didn’t get what the merpeople took, the people that they would surely miss would die.
The thirst task was intense. The maze was just crazy. Creatures of every kind all of the place. No way of knowing what you’re going to face next. Just crazy. Even though it was the fifth time reading the book for me, everything still gave me a feeling of unease.
The final battle between Harry and Lord Voldemort was amazing to read about. It was written so perfectly. All of the things that lead up to the battle just made the hair on the back of my neck stand up on ends. The cup being a port key, Cedric’s death, and the rebirth of Voldemort just never seized to amaze me. It was amazing to read the battle between two of the most powerful wizards battle it out.
Overall, rereading this book (along with the rest of the series) has been an awesome experience. The series as a whole just makes my imagination work overtime. Then when you watch the movies, the bring everything we thought about to life. There is no other series like it. I can’t wait to continue on with rereading the rest of the series. Onto The Order of the Phoenix!!
