  • A bit ashamed to say I just finished this for the first time

    But goddamn what a ride. The climax at the graveyard was HARROWING.

    Some really effective horror writing for what is apparently a kids book.

    Absolutely loved it.

    Excited to finish the series.

    Ayyy lit I’m rereading the series rn and just finished GoF too

    I really love how out of all the other books Goblet really takes shape as a detective/mystery thriller with all the mysteries that need solving

    Who put harry’s name in the goblet of fire?
    Who cast the dark mark at the world cup?
    What happened to Bertha Jorkins?
    How was Rita Skeeter getting information?
    Who were Fred & George blackmailing?
    Was Barty Crouch Jr. guilty or not?
    What happened to Barty Crouch Sr?

    Rowling was just putting on a clinic of amazing storytelling with this book and the film adaption really butchered it horribly due to the fact that the director Mike Newell obviously didn’t really read the book because all he ever talked about in interviews was how massive he thought the book was & how much of a chore it was for him to read

  • This is the book that got me into the franchise. Always was my favorite and I thought it was bias but after reading the rest in order it was still my fav

  • HBP my fav but GOF goated too

  • dat climax
    cedric

  • easily my fav book but least fav movie

  • My favorite book of all time. Crazy cause I just started rereading the series for the first time in 7 years & I’m on GOF now.
    She really leveled up with this one. Not one bad chapter & its escapism at its finest in so many aspects.
    The last stretch of chapters where everything unfolds & all the plots come together while also setting up the next 3 books are top tier.

    They really butchered the movie especially the 3rd task. They did alright with the ending though.

    Is this better than the movies?

    10000000000%

    The movies leave out soooooo much it’s actually frustrating

  • Also for all my currently reading and rereading fam

    MovieFlame is doing a series on youtube that lists the every difference between the books & films and it’s really good he just did Goblet like last week

  • if prisoner of azkaban didn’t exist it’d be my favorite HP movie and probably favorite book too

  • Went through the audiobooks in order over the past few months. Amazing ride. Umbridge is even more infuriating than she is in the movie imo, so you in for some fuming in Order

    This series specifically converted me to a books>>>movie guy

    Is this better than the movies?

    Of course. The movies are all good to great but the books are 10x better.

    Couldn’t have said it better myself. That mystery/thriller genre focus of this book was so enjoyable. The pacing was also superb as well.

  • I remember reading this for the first time. The maze challenge had me sweating for real lol
