The book started of Harry Potter having a dream about Frank Bryce. The old caretaker of the Riddle House. In his dream, he saw the incomplete Lord Voldemort having a conversation with Wormtail, also known as Peter Pettigrew. He woke up having his scar hurting.

The school year starts with Dumbledore's announcement of the upcoming triwizard tournament which isn't held for a long time. The three competing schools, Hogwarts, Durmstrang, and Beauxbatons, will have one representatives or champions each. For Durmstrang, Viktor Krum, for Beauxbaton, Fleur Decaleur, and for Hogwarts, Cedric Diggory. But something went wrong, the goblet also picked Harry Potter, without him entering the tournament voluntarily in the extremely deadly tournament.

The best book that J.K Rowling has written yet comparing to the first three, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, as far as I know, is the most extreme, intense, and intriguing Harry Potter book yet among the first Harry Potter book. I haven't read the 5-7 Harry Potter books yet, so I'm comparing this one to the previous three.

You can imagine clearly every words that J.K Rowling has written. It is not hard to understand. You can easily ride on with the story. The characters are pretty interesting too.

The new characters in this book, like Winky, Barty Crouch and Barty Crouch Junior, Ludo Bagman, Viktor Krum, Rita Skeeters and others might be one of the characters that you will watch and interests you.

The 4th year of Harry Potter in Hogwarts is the most revealing, most mysterious, most intriguing. The darker stories of the entire Harry Potter story started here. In the Quidditch world cup, you will think that you are as well in the stadium where it is held. Every words are exciting. The Quidditch happening is enticing. Like, you're watching it live.

And the part where the dark mark was conjured, it's the first thing in this book that wil intrigue the hell out of you that you would want to know more and read more until everything is revealed.

The Triwizard tournament, too, is one of the most brilliant parts of this book.

The plot sticks well not only by this book, but also to the previous Harry Potter books. I don't know, I just find J.K Rowling brilliantly amazing because I can't find any loopholes. Like lapses about the mysteries and issues in this book and in the previous books. The story sticks together. As if J.K Rowling is a historian, and what she wrote happened in real life and not just a product of a her mere imagination.

The story of Harry Potter is wide, that's why I think, it's 90% possible that J.K Rowling might commit mistakes and might make loopholes, but I find nothing in this book.

The funny parodies of our very own world is also here. The humor is of course written. I love the S.P.E.W or the movement that Hermione made for the elves to have their own freedom and to be treated equally as the humans.

The mystery of Harry's entrance to the Triwizard tournament is also brought till the end of the book. It didn't leave a clue until you come to the revelation of someone in the book. And to some characters like Karkaroff, Snape, Crouch, Krum, and some others are unpredictable. There will be a point in time while you're reading the book that you will think someone's villain, someone's a better person. But actually, I ended up wrong. The character who I think a villain, is actually the good one. And the character who I favored, is actually the villain. That's one of J.K Rowling's magic. Her tales are unique, her characters unpredictable.

And in the near ending of the book, it's the very best part. Unlike the previous Harry Potter books, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire ended not-so-triumphant, but sad. And it left you intrigued, leaving you dead-wanting to read the next in the series. The plot of the entire Harry Potter series went thicker here. The variety of characters go wider. Probably, there'll be a lot more of new characters to be unleashed in the next book.

The return of the Dark Lord Voldemort is not one of the things that you would want to miss. That's why you'll be dead wanting to read the next book.

This is just an amazing book. This is where the Harry Potter's plot thickens. The start of the darker and stronger villainous acts of Lord Voldemort. A graver threat to Harry Potter, and the whole wizarding world. I just simple loved this book! :)

I already modified it. @bollinger: I only copied the plot, not my opinion. There's no opinion in my plot. I don't want to make this any bigger. I already modified it with my own plot. DONE.

People, it's my review. What I get from wikipedia is only the plot. Take note of that.
