Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire - J.K. Rowling,Jim Dale

Diving back into the world of Harry Potter has been really fun. I forgot just how much I missed this series. Jim Dale is extraordinary as he reads the book. I am catching so many things that I either skimmed over when I read it the first time because I was inhaling the book, or just plain forgot. It's still as fresh and new to me as it was the first time I read it more than 10 years ago.  

 

I am using this for the Magical Realism bingo square!

Apparently Jim Dale set a world record when he used 125 different voices for this audio. I can believe it! He is absolutely fabulous! I am going to use this one for the magical realism bingo square for obvious reasons! :)

The review below was based on my first read of the Harry Potter books, ages ago and in Dutch. Updated reviews will follow after a reread (in English) I plan to do.

 

The Prisoner of Azkaban was my favorite book of the series, so it's obvious I didn't like this one as much as I did the third. In my opinion it took too long before Harry and his friends are actually going to school again. And I always liked the schoolparts of the stories best. I liked the end of this book...


I thought you can really feel that Rowling is willing to make her books 'darker' and more sinister in comparison with the first books.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire - Stephen Fry,J.K. Rowling Ugh the feels! I went back and forth between listening to Stephen Fry and reading the actual book this time.

I love that Harry is using the threat of Sirius to get just a little bit of peace from the Dursley's. I am so happy that he and Sirius are corresponding and that he still has hope of clearing his name and actually getting to spend time with him. But as with this series, things just get worse and worse with this book. Sirius, so worried about Harry, was willing to risk his freedom to be close enough to keep him safe.

I pretty much enjoyed everything about this book, although at the start I thought I had partially disliked this book previously. I was mistaken. This book was great from start to finish. I loved all the side stories and the fact that they didn't get lost in the main plot, while not taking over the book either. It was interesting to see Harry and Ron actually have a little falling out. It wasn't so different to see Ron and Hermione at each other's throats, but this time had a different feel. Ron was just a bit of a butthead in this book, but it's also kind of understandable. He kind of always gets the short end of the stick. But no matter what, he loves Harry like a brother and will always have his back. And the same goes for Harry.

Mad-Eye Moody was fantastic, as was Dobby, and poor, poor Winky. It was great finally meeting Charlie and Bill Weasley. And I really liked Krum. I was actually pulling for him and Hermione. I think it would have been very interesting to the whole story to have another character from a completely different school thrown into the mix.

And you can't have a Harry Potter book without Voldemort. The ending really killed me. Poor Harry. Poor Cedric, who was a nice kid just trying to do the right thing by agreeing to share the win with Harry, and ended up dead for his troubles. It just adds to the hate you already have for Voldemort--especially after seeing the echo of Cedric, who begged Harry to take his body back...and Lilly and James. Ugh the feels!

The next book is by far my favorite in the series, and also the book that makes bawl. Not sure if I will read or listen. I'm thoroughly enjoying Stephen Fry, but I get through it faster when I read. Decisions.
