Goblet of Fire
I’m still trudging along through the Harry Potter novels. Many people told me when I was debating if I could keep going through the series that things would turn around in book 4. I have to admit this is the first novel in the series I did like, and much of that came from how well Rowling tied information from the first three books back into this story. I still find the school year long story arc to be tiresome. A little variety there would make me enjoy this more. Also would still like some better characterization. There are hundreds of cardboard characters running around, I’d like a handful of them to be better developed. Anyhow a deal is a deal and I will continue moving forward. I now do so with the belief that I might like the series by the end.
