Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J K Rowling

What can I say, I was a hold out. I thought that Harry Potter was overhyped gumbledeegoop. I can admit when I was wrong. See watch... I was wrong. J. K. Rowling has created a world with great character depth, fabulous fantasy storylines and an overall theme of good versus evil.

This the fourth book in the series is the best of the lot so far. We see growth in both Harry, Voldemort and the rest of the cast of characters. I see a lot of foreshadowing in this book as well. The huge number of theories that are floating around the web and teen discussions all over the world are completely understandable to me now.

I can't wait to read the next book. And in fact put it on hold before I even reviewed the book here on the site.

Also, since the movie opened this weekend, I waited to see it until after I had read the book. My feelings were it was a much better adaptation of the original story in the book than any of the previous three stories. Of course that may be because it had a lot more depth and excitement to delve into than the prior books.
