Although this fourth installment in the Harry Potter series begins with a long sequence set at the Quidditch World Cup, it focuses on the Tri-Wizard Tournament, hosted by Hogwarts, which brings in teams of young magicians from two other schools; one is clearly intended to be French, the other eastern European. The book is paced by the three events that comprise the tournament, which spans the full school year. It's a superb plot device, holding together a book that's nearly double the length of the previous entry in the series. Along the way, Harry and his cohort encounter the usual mix of familiar faces and new characters, and more secrets of the school and the wizarding world are revealed as well. Our young heroes are also now immersed in the roiling hormonal mess of early adolescence, and J K Rowling does not spare us from witnessing some of its pains. Ron and Hermione are not getting along, Harry is racked by doubts and insecurity - the tone of the entire book is in fact more jittery and nervous, as Harry dreads and procrastinates over the tasks that await him, and Hogwarts itself is gripped by rumors of the Dark Lord's return. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is a real door-stop of a book - but it's also engaging and well-written.
