In J.K. Rowling’s book Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry, Ron, and Hermione go back to Hogwarts School of Wizardry for their fourth year and they are more excited than ever before because the Wizardry Games are coming up and its a contest between the best  wizards that are currently enrolled in the schools.  They arrive at Hogwarts awaiting the new students to get sorted into their houses and the ghosts of the houses come and await the new students too.  Dumbledore is walking the kids into the school while Professor McGonagall gets the sorting hat.  Many kids get sorted and finally the sorting is done and they go back to their dorms and they sleep for the first time in the dorm again.  After a few months and classes there is an announcement that the Wizardry Games are coming up and 3 other schools are coming to join in the festival and only people over 18 are allowed to enter into the tournament but many people try to and fail.  Harry is only 15 and somehow his name gets put into the hat and he is picked for the challenge.  There is a maze, a swim for treasure, a dragon fight, and another strange event that was not planned to happen but does.  Many people have done this but barely come out alive and very few make it.  A girl is also chosen to fight and she is barely surviving but she still manages to make it around.  The winner of this will get a cup and a money prize, but only if they accumulate enough points and live to tell their tale.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes a fast paced action book.  It starts out slow, but it picks up after a couple chapters.  If you like thrillers, then you are going to pick this up and love it.  I recommend this for guys between 13 and 15 because its more for non-mature funny guys, but if you feel like you need a good book, then pick this up and read it, but not before you read the other ones in this series first.  You  need to read this book in order to understand what this means.  I say that this was a good book after all and it is one that you will love.
