———REVIEW TIME——– Lord Voldemort, the dark wizard responsible for the deaths of Harry’s parents, is growing stronger. After attending the Quidditch World Cup, where Voldemort’s followers, the Death Eaters, cause a riot, by creating Voldemort’s signature Dark Mark in the sky over the stadium, causing pandemonium. The scar on Harry’s forehead is sporadically causing him agonizing pain. Back at Hogwarts, Headmaster Dumbledore announces that instead of the usual interhouse Quidditch matches, Hogwarts will host the Triwizard Tournament. Witches and wizards from two other schools are coming to Hogwarts for the year to compete in a series of grueling contests. The tournament is open only to students age 17 and above, but somehow Harry is also chosen, even though he is underage and Hogwarts already has a champion. Sirius Black, Harry’s godfather, suspects that this is another plot against Harry’s life. As Voldemort is returning to his full power, and complex and deadly schemes are in motion, few people are who they seem to be, and even Dumbledore’s protection may not be enough to keep Harry safe this time.
This fourth installment, with a heart-pounding and emotional climax, serves as a turning point in the series, for the readers. Showing how physically, emotionally, and mentally stronger Harry becomes by the end of it. Having gone through the Triwizard Tournament and escaped Voldemort for the fourth time became the breeding grounds for the rock-solid self-belief and confidence that would come in handy in the last three books of the series. This was the book that allowed us readers to witness Harry’s transformation from a child to a teenaged young man.
Love the way how amazingly Rowling ploted the tasks and cried my heart at the death of Cedric Diggory, the way Rowling described every features of this boy will lead every girl to give this boy her heart. Another amazing piece by Rowling hats off.
