Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open There are so many chapters and characters and details that make this book special Here are some of my favourites 1 S.P.E.W.2 Hermione in every scene ever3 The house elves and the kitchen scenes I m honestly so in love with the kitchens Every time they tickle the pear in the portrait I get all excited 4 Durmstrang and Beauxbatons5 The Yule Ball and the fact that Harry thinks Hermione is a girl he s never seen before6 The fact that Ron has a huge crush on Krum while Hermione stays utterly unimpressed and as soon as Krum takes her to the ball the situation changes, Hermione likes Krum and Ron rips him well, miniature him apart7 Harry s fight with Ron Not because I enjoy them fighting but because Jo perfectly captures the feeling of anger and frustration that I have everytime I m in a similiar situation.8 The Wonky Feint I m still laughing.9 Rita Skeeter s reports I love to hate her.10 Severus Snape cold bloodedly claiming he can t see a difference when Hermione s teeth are half a metre longer than usual This incredible man.11 Molly Weasley being such a good mom to Harry Got tears in my eyes just thinking about it.12 Hermione s triumph over a vicious beetle.Still, the book is not my favourite in the series, the reason being the horrible graveyard scene in the end It s just a little too much to take for my poor Potter heart.Find of my books on Instagram To read reviews by me visit Views Reviews I seriously have no idea why I still review these books when I have nothing new to say I mean J.K Rowling is perfect This series is perfect And I dream day night of going to Hogwarts So what I m going to do is, I m going to show you how I felt about this book When I started the book During the book At the end Umm Mam Rowling..All in allSorry for the lame review, readers I just really don t know what to say.. Harry Potter Is Midway Through His Training As A Wizard And His Coming Of Age Harry Wants To Get Away From The Pernicious Dursleys And Go To The International Quidditch Cup He Wants To Find Out About The Mysterious Event That S Supposed To Take Place At Hogwarts This Year, An Event Involving Two Other Rival Schools Of Magic, And A Competition That Hasn T Happened For A Hundred Years He Wants To Be A Normal, Fourteen Year Old Wizard But Unfortunately For Harry Potter, He S Not Normal Even By Wizarding Standards And In His Case, Different Can Be Deadly Back Cover One of my favorites in the series.The ending always gets to me and breaks my heart. This was the beginning of my addiction to POTter I had previously experimented with and enjoyed POTter on 3 different occasions, but could easily have walked away and never touched the stuff again Then, under some pressure from some POTterHEAD peers of mine, I tried the newest blend called the Gobletand everything changed As the warm, easy, potato chip prose crossed my blood brain barrier, euphoria ensued My inner child was smitten Iwashooked and Iwashappy Ignore the so called experts who say POTter is brain cell killing pap Don t listen to those jaded, book snobby squares Most of them are wound so tight they wouldn t know a good book if it sat on their face and wriggled POTter makes you feel good POTter makes you smile POTter makes you joyous and giggly Hell, POTter makes you want to use the word giggly POTter is enjoyable and fun That s enough for me So what made the Goblet so much addicting than the rest of the POTter I had tried Part of it was that I had already seen the movies up through Order of the Phoenix before I got my hands on genuine POTter The first 3 were fun but I felt like I had already been there done that as they were pretty faithfully adaptated for the screen Still enjoyable, but not enough to put the POTter monkey on my back Then came the Goblet of POTter and it was a big, huge, tightly rolled fatty at 750 pages The cut, diluted movie strain couldn t hope to be as potent as the primo original and the story was finally given the room to breathe and take on an epic feel It was completely addictive The world building details started coming fast and furious and the characters were given considerably increased depth Add that to Rowling s breezy, ear friendly prose and I found myself spaced out for hours turning the pages and still hungering for It s high praise indeed when I say that 750 pages did not contain a single dull, ploddy moment This was fun and wonderful and a pleasure to experience It deserves to be recognized for the iconic work that it is in the realm of YA fantasy Is it popcorn Certainly Is it a joy to read Definitely Is it one I HIGHLY RECOMMEND to all lovers of feel good, comfort food YES 5.0 stars Winner Hugo Award for Best Science Fiction Novel 2001 Nominee Locus Award for Best Fantasy Novel 2001 Nominee Bram Stoker Award YA for Best Novel 2001 A 86% Extraordinary NotesAfter a steady build, the series hits its stride Deep and layered, it goes down smooth, never seeming overly complex. Re Read in December 2014 for Harry Christmas To You SO I HAVE A FEW NOTES ON THIS ONE at the beginning, Voldemort says to Wormtail, I will allow you to perform an essential task for me, one that many of my followers would give their right hands to perform OMG J.K ROWLING FORESHADOWS EVERYTHINGGGG when the Weasley men come to Privet Drive through the Dursleys fireplace is just priceless Yet ANOTHER scene that I wish had made it into the movie We get to meet Bill in this book way earlier than in the movies, I might add , and Mrs Weasley is very disapproving of how Bill looks I love that Bill stood up for himself and was like NOBODY GIVE AN F HOW I LOOK, AND NEITHER DO IIIIII It was a nice thing to throw in there Dobby is also in this book , and seeing how different he is was really fun Harry and Ron fighting made my heart hurt so much All of the drama at the Yule Ball just made me SQUEEE because it s so obvious that Ron and Hermione like each other and they just don t want to admit it and GAH THE FEELS I also love how much Hermione stands up for what she believes in, which you can particularly see in this book She wants justice for the house elves, she won t let Ron get away with being an idiot like when he says he just wants a pretty girl to go to the ball with , and she is especially confident in this book as well Malfoy and many other people are constantly teasing her, but she is completely above it, and for that I admire her WHEN HARRY IS LISTENING TO HAGRID AND MADAME MAXIME AND HE SEES THE BEETLE IMAGINE IF HE HAD JUST STEPPED ON IT WOULDN T THAT HAVE BEEN GREAT I completely forgot about the part where Harry sees Barty Crouch on the Marauders Map He was so close to finding out something big, but then things got crazy and he didn t, but WHOA SO CLOSE Cedric s death hit me a lot harder than it ever has before He was such an amazing person, and I wish that he could have survived so him and Harry could have been buddies VOLDEMORT FORESHADOWS HORCRUXES IN THIS BOOK TWO MORE BOOKS UNTIL HARRY ACTUALLY LEARNS THOUGH.ok so I think it s safe to say that this is one of my favorites in the series for sure Probably in the top 3. English Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Italiano The villagers of Little Hangleton still called it the Riddle House , even though it had been many years since the Riddle family had lived there Maybe this time I was out of line with the bedtime reading to my daughter, not so much for the size of the book, but for its darker content compared to the previous ones Towards the end of this fourth book in the Harry Potter series, my little girl had difficulty falling asleep I had to defuse the situation.The Quidditch World Cup is coming, and Harry, Ron and Hermione have the chance to watch the final round, before the start of the new school year This time problems start even earlier than the end of the summer vacation, far from the walls of Hogwarts Many pages, many events, the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, the Triwizard Tournament, the tasks to face There is always something to understand, some mystery to unveil Great food for our potterian curiosity But be warned, Dumbledore warns usCuriosity is not a sin But we should exercise caution with our curiosity Caution easy to say Vote 9 Gli abitanti di Little Hangleton la chiamavano ancora Casa Riddle, anche se erano passati tanti anni da quando i Riddle ci abitavano Forse stavolta ho esagerato con la lettura serale per mia figlia Non tanto per la mole, quanto per il contenuto, pi cupo dei precedenti Verso la fine di questo quarto libro della serie, la mia bambina aveva difficolt ad addormentarsi Ho dovuto sdrammatizzare non poco.La Coppa del Mondo di Quidditch alle porte, ed Harry, Ron ed Hermione hanno la possibilit di vedere dal vivo la finale, prima dell inizio del nuovo anno scolastico Questa volta i problemi si presentano ancor prima della fine delle vacanze estive, lontano dalle mura di Hogwarts Pagine dense di eventi e di nuove conoscenze, tra cui il nuovo insegnante di Difesa dalle Arti Oscure E poi il Torneo Tremaghi, e le prove da affrontare C sempre qualcosa da capire, qualche mistero da svelare Ottimo cibo per la nostra potteriana curiosit Attenzione per , Silente ci avverteLa curiosit non un peccato Ma dovremmo andarci cauti, con la curiosit Cauti una parola Voto 9 Um Wow Yeah That was freaking FANTASTIC Probably my favorite so far, just wow oh my goshWHAT EVEN I feel empowered and sad at the same time sad becauseyou know 5 5 stars of course This series has taken a damn TURN Watch my video review here
Robert GalbraithAlthough she writes under the pen name J.K Rowling, pronounced like rolling, her name when her first Harry Potter book was published was simply Joanne Rowling Anticipating that the target audience of young boys might not want to read a book written by a woman, her publishers demanded that she use two initials, rather than her full name As she had no middle name, she chose K as the second initial of her pen name, from her paternal grandmother Kathleen Ada Bulgen Rowling She calls herself Jo and has said, No one ever called me Joanne when I was young, unless they were angry Following her marriage, she has sometimes used the name Joanne Murray when conducting personal business During the Leveson Inquiry she gave evidence under the name of Joanne Kathleen Rowling In a 2012 interview, Rowling noted that she no longer cared that people pronounced her name incorrectly.Rowling was born to Peter James Rowling, a Rolls Royce aircraft engineer, and Anne Rowling n e Volant , on 31 July 1965 in Yate, Gloucestershire, England, 10 miles 16 km northeast of Bristol Her mother Anne was half French and half Scottish Her parents first met on a train departing from King s Cross Station bound for Arbroath in 1964 They married on 14 March 1965 Her mother s maternal grandfather, Dugald Campbell, was born in Lamlash on the Isle of Arran Her mother s paternal grandfather, Louis Volant, was awarded the Croix de Guerre for exceptional bravery in defending the village of Courcelles le Comte during the First World War.Rowling s sister Dianne was born at their home when Rowling was 23 months old The family moved to the nearby village Winterbourne when Rowling was four She attended St Michael s Primary School, a school founded by abolitionist William Wilberforce and education reformer Hannah More Her headmaster at St Michael s, Alfred Dunn, has been suggested as the inspiration for the Harry Potter headmaster Albus Dumbledore.As a child, Rowling often wrote fantasy stories, which she would usually then read to her sister She recalls that I can still remember me telling her a story in which she fell down a rabbit hole and was fed strawberries by the rabbit family inside it Certainly the first story I ever wrote down when I was five or six was about a rabbit called Rabbit He got the measles and was visited by his friends, including a giant bee called Miss Bee At the age of nine, Rowling moved to Church Cottage in the Gloucestershire village of Tutshill, close to Chepstow, Wales When she was a young teenager, her great aunt, who Rowling said taught classics and approved of a thirst for knowledge, even of a questionable kind, gave her a very old copy of Jessica Mitford s autobiography, Hons and Rebels Mitford became Rowling s heroine, and Rowling subsequently read all of her books.Rowling has said of her teenage years, in an interview with The New Yorker, I wasn t particularly happy I think it s a dreadful time of life She had a difficult homelife her mother was ill and she had a difficult relationship with her father she is no longer on speaking terms with him She attended secondary school at Wyedean School and College, where her mother had worked as a technician in the science department Rowling said of her adolescence, Hermione a bookish, know it all Harry Potter character is loosely based on me She s a caricature of me when I was eleven, which I m not particularly proud of Steve Eddy, who taught Rowling English when she first arrived, remembers her as not exceptional but one of a group of girls who were bright, and quite good at English Sean Harris, her best friend in the Upper Sixth owned a turquoise Ford Anglia, which she says inspired the one in her books.
