Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Book 4)
Harry Potter and the Goblet of FIre


As an eighteen year-old, I'm a little older than Harry Potter's original target audience. Yet I, like millions of others, was caught up in the vivid world which J.K. Rowling creates. The first three books of the series are all good, light-hearted fun, enchanting to all ages. This book takes a new turn, displaying the versatility with which J.K. Rowling writes. From the first pages, you can tell that Harry is older, bringing all the evolution of character and world-view that comes with it. When we are younger, we blind ourselves to some of the ugliness in the world. Yet that very ugliness adds depth to and highlights the beauty and goodness in life. In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, we see the evidence of this in the characters and the storyline. It is darker, yes, but in the sense that it is more realistic in portraying He-Who-Must-Not-Be Named as the true incarnation of evil he is. It adds new depths and ranges to an already thrilling story, without overwhelming the inherent humor and light. This book is the most complex yet, leaving us with a lot to muse over during the long wait for book five.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Book 1)
A book for kids...but also for adults.


The first book in this series is a refreshing splash of positive thinking. The themes of magical regions beyond our limited senses, of never giving up, and of exploring ourselves and our future, are very strong, sometimes overwhelming the logic of real space and time, while sometimes seeming to crush the logic of the very plot itself.
Everything is here - dangerous dragons, invisiblitiy cloaks, owls, flying brooms, bubbling cauldrons, magic potions, ghosts, evil family members and lost parents.
This is the candy, the pop corn, the comfort food of the mind. Good for children and adults alike, it is something you just pick up, sit down and read in front of a warm fire, while drinking tea and stroking the cat in your lap. The characters are as bright as falling stars, the action swift as a roaring river and the words as delightful to the tongue as cotton candy.
This is only the FIRST course in a meal that J.K. Rowling is still setting out for the readers, her guests to her lovely party, and the lightest of the fare. The books will become heavier, darker, more filling as you go along, but with this one just enjoy it. THIS is the salad - light, designed to prepare your palate for the rest of the meal.
ENJOY!

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Book 4)
Worth waiting a year!


After 734 pages, your first thought will be "When is the next one coming out?" This installment of Harry Potter slowly takes you away from the world of Muggles and into a place, which with every book, is being more familar. Back are all the lovable(and no so loveable) characters, with new ones, popping up to continue the storyline. This book indeed has a darker tone, but as the storyline continues to its horrific climax, you will not be able to stop reading. I hesitate to explain why Book 4 is so great for fear of giving away even a sliver of the storyline. Just know that every one of the 734 pages is a important part of a fascinating story that just gets better and better. "When is the next one coming out! "

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Book 6)
No spoilers here, just a happy reader


I think there's a bit more to this book than meets the eye. There's a few crumbs dropped along the way that make me think that there's some twists still to come. That's all I'm going to say about the book, other than I thought it was great. It is different to the other books in that there isn't such a strong storyline pulling it along and there's no real introduction of strange and wonderful new places. That said this book is about the end of innocence. Harry and pals are no longer star-struck kids, and the world isn't viewed in the same wide-eyed, should I say 'magical' way. This is more a book of vengance and even hate, rather than a book about chocolate frogs.

I read the book from cover to cover in a day, and I'm far from being a kid. I've loved the series so far and this moved the plot along nicely. Even the reviewers that said they didn't like it seem to have managed to cram in over 600 pages in a day!

I've seen a few dodgy reviews in the UK press (a lot of excellent ones too, mind), where we love to knockdown our idols. These are the same sort of people that knocked LOTR because Sam's accent was wrong. They miss the point a bit. I like a good story, if I wanted romatic prose, I'd read Shakespeare. And this is a very good story. I've always said a good book will stay with your for life, and in 30 or 40 years time, kids (and hopefully me) will be talking about the excitement they felt when a new Potter novel was released. They'll read them to their kids and their grand kids. Just make the last part extra long, I don't want it to end any sooner than it has to.

One last thing for other reviewers, please, please, please no more spoilers. You really could ruin someone's enjoyment. You've had your chance to read and enjoy, just let others know if you liked it or not. We all know you can read, so there's no need to impress us with what you've learnt.

The Magic Keeps Up


Being a fan of the first 4 books, I had high hopes for the Order of The Phoenix. Thankfully the magic shows now sign of weakening! This one layers on the mystery and character development. Rowling spins a fun yarn, and doesn't let you down. The only problem now is I'll have to wait for #6!

A Magnificent read!


This book was referred to me by the mother of my son's classmate. She told me that although the boy's were young they would be able to follow the plot of the tale. Well, we were not disappointed! My husband started reading it to our son and very soon we were all in the bed together at night listening attentively to Harry's adventure. This is a delightful, exciting tale for children of all ages, and adults who still have the ability to imagine and dream of the wonderful and fantastic. The writing is quite sophisticated and the structure of the text is ingenious. This is a fresh innovative addition to the many vibrant novels written for children. My family looks forward to sharing many more evenings with Harry, Dumbledore, Hermoine, Ron and Hagrid

A good effort...


This is just a short note to say that The Order of the Phoenix was a good, entertaining book. However, I dont feel it was as good as the Goblet of Fire.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Book 6)
Half-Blood not a Children's Book


Although the Harry Potter franchise in general is aimed at young children, a word of warning to parents thinking of purchasing Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: this is not a children's book. Reflecting about the book upon finishing reading it, there are clearly many mature issues which would give this book at least a 12+ rating.

Issues such as death, betrayal, romance and relationships, although, one of the major issues that feature prominently in the book is racism. This is reflected in that people who are born from muggle (non-magic folk) parents are perpetrated against by people from fully wizard families. Although the issue of racism is prominent in all Harry Potter books, I think it is an issue whether it is appropriate for young children to be reading about it.

The relationships undertaken by Harry and his friends are also becoming deeper and more explicit such as this extract from the book, "Lavender flung her arms around Ron's neck...There was a noise like a plunger being withdrawn from a blocked sink and Ron surfaced." No doubt this paragraph works for effect, but is it really necessary?

There are also some language issues in the book such as Morfin saying to Voldemort, "Dishonoured us she did, that little slut!" Used for effect again, but is it the proper language to use, when kids about 7 and above are reading it? It all comes down to maturity. As Harry and his friends get older with each passing book, the books themselves and their content gets more mature respectively. Overall, I think parents should read the book themselves before deciding whether or not their children should be subjected to this book or not.

Besides this rather critical analysis of the book, I enjoyed HP6 immensely. As other reviewers have mentioned, there are many vague hints to future story developments. Also, adding to the discussion whether or not Snape is working for Dumbledore or Voldemort: why didn't Snape kill Harry at the end even though Snape had apparently, nothing to lose?

Finally, I want to reiterate my wish for parents to make sure that they read the book first and then use their discretion to conclude whether or not their children should be readin the book, as I believe children 12 years and over should only be reading it.
