Stephen Fry – Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Audiobooktext
In a flash of blue flames, the goblet of fire threw back another piece of paper that read: “Harry Potter Book 4 Review”. And on the back was inscribed:
Fourth of volume Harry Potter, the fantastic world of JK Rowlingexpands, we discover new characters who will be important for the future (such as Victor Krum, the Death Eaters or Rita Sketter) and the end is a bit like the second introduction of the following volumes.
The school year at Hogwarts differs from the others and takes on a new form by the organization of a very important magic tournament between three magic schools in Europe. So we no longer follow the usual courses that were a bit boring, but a sports tournament like a match that we watch on television.
And, oh surprise, Harry is chosen by the Goblet of Fire (against his will) to participate in the competition. I liked this passage less because Harry is once again put forward, but the magic of the story outweighs this little snag.
That’s why Harry is going to be training alongside Hermione in spellcasting, if he is to have any chance of winning. It is in this tome therefore that Harry evolves, because he will learn a lot of spells that will be useful to him later.
But a whole mystery unfolds during this competition, and the end is just superb and unexpected (except for those like me who will have read it fifteen times;).
The author gradually increases in power during the books and after the third, this is my favorite! Because we pass from the freshness and the youth of Harry in a world without “great” danger to a very protected Harry more innocent in a dark world …
After having reviewed the first three volumes of Harry Potter, this saga of JK Rowlingtold, heme It was necessary to continue and arrive at Volume 4 “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”.
No question of stopping in such a good way and it is the countdown before the end. Already? Yes, since time …
What does this volume 4 have in store for us? Obviously the unexpected, the magically bewitching. Some critics say it is THE central pillar of these adventures. We’ll see.
If only by its appearance, this book is much thicker than the previous ones, therefore heavier and what did the author find to surprise us?
The first chapter “La Maison des Jeux du Sort” describes it as “shivering in the spine” and “was nothing more than a damp, dilapidated, deserted building” in Little Hangleton. Fifty years earlier, three bodies of the Judesor family had been found there. Over the years, we nicknamed this house “Jeux du Sort” because children from the village had fun throwing stones at it. An instant suspected of the murders, Harry Bryce had returned there and tended the weeds. But one day he hears some noise there and, hiding, he sees intruders talking: someone called Master, Wormtail … In short, the discussion is about the Quidditch World Cup and, apparently, we are trying not to admit Harry Potter. But I will skip over the details, this one will still be chosen (as someone said “without knowing it of their own accord”) and we will see how.
For this fourth year at Hogwarts, we are going to meet new characters with names as special as ever, such as: Verpey who exclaims “Gargoyle bag! “- Mr Crouch who speaks barely moving his lips – Mr Diggory with his” Enervatum “- Hedwig whom Hermione finds” too visible “, and many others …
We arrive at chapter 16 whose title is” The Cup of Fire ”where we can read:
“ – I can’t believe it! Ron said, dumbfounded, as the Hogwarts students walked up the castle steps behind Durmstrang’s delegation. Krum, Harry! It’s Victor Krum!
“For heaven’s sake Ron, he’s just a Quidditch player,” Hermione replied.
– A simple Quidditch player? Ron exclaimed, looking at her as if he couldn’t believe his ears. Hermione, he’s one of the best catchers in the world! ”(P.265).
There will follow a tournament where three champions will have to compete and the one who will have obtained the greatest number of points will be declared the winner. But first, the three champions will be chosen by an impartial judge… “The Goblet of Fire.” This is in a chest and apparently it is nothing exceptional except that a spray of flames and it is she who points to Harry Potter, all stunned because he had not applied.
You can imagine that I am not going to tell the rest of the story – I have prepared the ground – and the rest is rich in twists and turns, in magical witchcraft, in dramatic events – perhaps it seems, more tragic than those Harry has known before. He must overcome immense challenges. Also, again and again, the presence of the cruel Voldemort.At
one moment full of intensity, Harry thinks it is a Death Eater, Karkaroff, who put his name in The Goblet of Fire, but in fact it is Moody confessing, him who has an eye magic and mouth all askew, who has a lot in common with the Dark Lord.
it is therefore yet many adventures and the author even had the improbable imagination to introduce into this story, a beetle carrying a microphone to be able to “sneak” in all senses of the word.
Needless to say, it’s still an exciting, wacky tome and if you haven’t read it yet, you have to hurry because there are still (or more) three more waiting. It is highly recommended.
And so as for the previous ones.
