Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
This is the fourth book about the young orphan boy, Harry Potter, a boy who (in the first book) discovers that he, in fact, is a wizard. But not just any wizard, actually the only wizard that has survived the worlds most dangerous master of Dark Art’s – Lord Voldemort’s instant death spell - “Avada Kedavra” – which extraordinarily, only left him a deep, lightning shaped scar, in his forehead. But mournfully, his parents died during this event, trying to protect him with their life.
At this time, Harry is now 15 years old, and is going his fourth year at Hogwarts – a school of witchcraft and wizardry that is unknown to muggles (a different word for “non-magic-humans” – in other words, people like you and me).
His two best friends, Ron Weasel and Hermione Granger are also going to Hogwarts and are playing two extremely important roles of Harry’s life; even if he not always is aware of it.
With his two friends, and a lot of other “unlike” characters that crosses his path, Harry has to endure many harsh and sometimes very painful dealings during his time at Hogwarts. But as Harry overcomes these obstacles, he gains valuable experiences that he certainly will be in need of when facing the evil Lord Voldemort for the second time of his life. And this time it will not be pretty…
“But at that moment, there was a deafening rumble of thunder, and the doors of the Great Hall banged open.
A man stood in the doorway, leaning upon a long staff, shrouded in a black travelling cloak. Every head in the Great Hall swivelled towards the stranger, suddenly brightly illuminated by a fork of lightning that flashed across the ceiling. He lowered his hood, shook out a long mane of grizzled, dark hair, then began to walk up towards the teachers’ table.
A dull clunk echoed trough the Hall on his every other step. He reached the end of the top table, turned right and limped heavily towards Dumbledore. Another flash of lightning crossed the ceiling. Hermione gasped.
The lightning had thrown the man’s face into sharp relief, and it was a face unlike any Harry had ever seen. It looked as though it had been carved out of weathered wood by someone who had only the vaguest idea of what human faces were supposed to look like, and was none too skilled with a chisel.
Every inch of skin seemed to be scarred. The mouth looked like a diagonal gash, and a large chunk of the nose was missing. But it was the man’s eyes that made him frightening.
One of them was small, dark and beady. The other was large, round as a coin, and a vivid, electric blue. The blue eye was moving ceaselessly, without blinking, and was rolling up, down and from side to side, quite independently of the normal eye – and then it rolled right over, pointing into the back of the man’s head, so that all they could see was whiteness.”
The person described here is called Mad Eye Moody, and becomes Harry’s new Dark Art teacher (the students at Hogwarts are being taught how to defend themselves against Dark Art spells, which is quite on the contrary for schools of this “sort”). Moody, as he will be referred to later in the book, is probably the most spectacular character Harry will learn to know during the course of this book. His mysterious background and his, somewhat, “unusual” behaviour makes him one of those characters you remember the most. But the fact that he was a former Auror (a wizard that has vowed his life to hunt down every single one of Lord Voldemort’s followers and bring them to justice) makes the story even more interesting.
He plays a very important role to Harry, not because he saves his life numerous of times, but more likely because he plays a role as an older version of his killed father. But the question is if Moody has other intentions then just teaching the students the knowledge behind Dark Art’s? And if he is as good as he seems to be?
This and many other puzzling questions will be answered if you also would read this superb book (by the way, written by, the now famous, J.K. Rowling) which is bursting of magical events and bizarre deeds you never thought were possible! And how things are described in the book is absolutely beyond my imagination! This is absolutely the best book I have ever read! And I am not exaggerating as I write this.
It is hard to put all millions of positive comments about this book onto paper.
You simple have to read it yourself!
