Publisher's Summary

"'There will be three tasks, spaced throughout the school year, and they will test the champions in many different ways...their magical prowess - their daring - their powers of deduction - and, of course, their ability to cope with danger.'"

The Triwizard Tournament is to be held at Hogwarts. Only wizards who are over seventeen are allowed to enter - but that doesn't stop Harry dreaming that he will win the competition. Then at Hallowe'en, when the Goblet of Fire makes its selection, Harry is amazed to find his name is one of those that the magical cup picks out. He will face death-defying tasks, dragons and Dark wizards, but with the help of his best friends, Ron and Hermione, he might just make it through - alive!

    Story
    "The Best of a Brilliant Series"
    What made the experience of listening to Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Book 4 the most enjoyable?

    The humor, the many laugh-out-loud moments, and the palpably real pain, loneliness and longing of preadolescent friendships. Also, this is the book where you begin to notice that J.K. Rowling has pulled off a feat previously only achieved by Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House series: Her prose is "growing up" with Harry and his friends, and by this volume is approaching adult language, and is, like Harry, Ron, and Hermione, rapidly leaving childhood behind.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way it is divided into increasingly compelling thirds by the three tasks, each of which is more difficult, tortuous and terrifying than the last. This book, like Jane Austen's Emma, is like a perfectly fitted series of antique nesting boxes, each one fitting neatly inside the next with not a word out of place, not a word that could be cut out. No fat on it anywhere, and no loose ends.


    What does Jim Dale bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Jim Dale is that rare narrator who manages to give voice to each unique character while maintaining perfect pacing, inflection, pronunciation and not one second longer (or one second shorter) for a pause for emphasis than it should be. Narrating this entire series without a single wrong note must be one of the most astonishing achievements in the history of audiobooks.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely! You'll want to keep listening everywhere, even in the shower! And not only that, but this is the volume you will always go back to when you feel nostalgic for the magic of Hogwarts, and the one you'll think of first in years to come when anyone mentions this series.

    "It doesn't get any better than this"

    Jim Dale is without a doubt one of the top 3 narrators I have ever heard, and I have been an audio book addict for 10 years. The book needs no review, as it is as masterful as its six sisters. This is by far the most well spent credit I have ever used, and I look forward to completing the entire collection.

    "Amazing Story! Poor App"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes because it's Harry Potter!


    What other book might you compare Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Book 4 to and why?

    No comparison period.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The Second Task


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was shocked by the ending, didn't see that coming.


    Any additional comments?

    Audible, even though I love that you have added Harry Potter to your list of books I am also upset that each chapter of every Harry Potter book is missing it's chapter title which ruins the experience of this wonderful story but it is also disrespectful to J.K. Rowling and the art form of writing to totally disregard what Rowling wrote. If Rowling wanted the chapters to just be numbered she could have easily done that; she didn't; she named every chapter; the chapter titles enhance the experience not just an after thought. They are also functional because I may not always use the bookmarks or remember the number of the chapter I left off at. Often times I spot the chapters name and immediately know where I am in the story. You are the only app that I know of that doesn't include the chapter titles in there app. Please change your app to include the chapter titles for all digital audiobooks you sell.

    Cannot say enough good words about this book. It has been a while since i've read this and having seen the movies 1000 times can say withoutadoubt this is a much more compelling story. The twists, oh the twists! The there's-something-not-right feeling about some characters! The beautiful awkwardness of harry and his friends at this stage in their lives. Great surprises, captivating narratives, and imagery so vivid you can feel the sweat coming down your own neck as harry feels the same. JK, the queen. Jim Dale, the hero. Had me wanting to listen and listen day and night.

    Story
    "Truth is Generally Preferable to Lies"

    “We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.”
    ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

    8 July 2000. By this time. everyone was on the Harry Potter train. Steven King was reviewing Goblet of Fire for the New York Times, and news was out that they were going to be making Harry Potter into a movie. This book was released simultaneously in the United Kingdom by Bloomsbury and in the United States by Scholastic. It was a phenomenon. It won the Hugo. We all felt it. Grandmas who didn't read kids books were having the first three foisted on them.

    This was also when I discovered how funny JK Rowling was. Don't get me wrong she was funny before, but Goblet of Fire pushed not only the gas on length, but also her sharp wit. As the team (Harry, Ron and Hermione) is growing up, so the humor gets a little richer and the plot starts getting a bit darker.

    "Hermione's 'Voice' Annoying"

    Narrator was great, except that the voice he gives Hermione makes her sound like a whiney idiot. Every time he said "Harry" as Hermione it sounded like she was talking to a dog that's done something bad. Otherwise the different voices were really great.
