"'There will be three tasks, spaced throughout the school year, and they will test the champions in many different ways...their magical prowess - their daring - their powers of deduction - and, of course, their ability to cope with danger.'"
The Triwizard Tournament is to be held at Hogwarts. Only wizards who are over seventeen are allowed to enter - but that doesn't stop Harry dreaming that he will win the competition. Then at Hallowe'en, when the Goblet of Fire makes its selection, Harry is amazed to find his name is one of those that the magical cup picks out. He will face death-defying tasks, dragons and Dark wizards, but with the help of his best friends, Ron and Hermione, he might just make it through - alive!


What the Critics Say

"To call Dale a 'reader' of books is like saying Monet was a Sunday painter." (Los Angeles Times)

The Best of a Brilliant Series

What made the experience of listening to Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Book 4 the most enjoyable?

The humor, the many laugh-out-loud moments, and the palpably real pain, loneliness and longing of preadolescent friendships. Also, this is the book where you begin to notice that J.K. Rowling has pulled off a feat previously only achieved by Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House series: Her prose is "growing up" with Harry and his friends, and by this volume is approaching adult language, and is, like Harry, Ron, and Hermione, rapidly leaving childhood behind.

What did you like best about this story?

The way it is divided into increasingly compelling thirds by the three tasks, each of which is more difficult, tortuous and terrifying than the last. This book, like Jane Austen's Emma, is like a perfectly fitted series of antique nesting boxes, each one fitting neatly inside the next with not a word out of place, not a word that could be cut out. No fat on it anywhere, and no loose ends.

What does Jim Dale bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Jim Dale is that rare narrator who manages to give voice to each unique character while maintaining perfect pacing, inflection, pronunciation and not one second longer (or one second shorter) for a pause for emphasis than it should be. Narrating this entire series without a single wrong note must be one of the most astonishing achievements in the history of audiobooks.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely! You'll want to keep listening everywhere, even in the shower! And not only that, but this is the volume you will always go back to when you feel nostalgic for the magic of Hogwarts, and the one you'll think of first in years to come when anyone mentions this series.

Hermione's 'Voice' Annoying

Narrator was great, except that the voice he gives Hermione makes her sound like a whiney idiot. Every time he said "Harry" as Hermione it sounded like she was talking to a dog that's done something bad. Otherwise the different voices were really great.
