Artur, The Young Reading Nation (YRN)

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

I am sorry but the book I want to review is "Harry Potter and the Goblet of fire," soo:
The fourth book in the Potter series begins more than fifty years before the present day, with the strange death of the Riddle family, wealthy landowners, and their older son, Tom. The family’s groundskeeper, once suspected of murdering his employers, now looks after the abandoned house. One fateful night he notices a light within the house that has been abandoned for years; and goes to investigate assuming it is local youths. He is mistaken however and it is the last mistake poor Frank ever makes.

Somewhere in Surrey, Harry Potter, a fourteen-year-old orphan who lives with his aunt and uncle, wakes with a throbbing pain in the scar on his forehead.

The real story begins at the Quidditch World Cup, where wizards have gathered in their hundreds to support their various teams. However, in the middle of the night, there is a disturbance when a group of Death Eaters, wizards who supported the dark wizard Lord Voldermort when he was in power fifteen years previously, attack the local muggles. This all culminates in someone inscribing the “dark mark” – the symbol Lord Voldemort would always leave after committing a murder – in the night sky.

As ever Harry and his two best friends Ron and Hermione find themselves caught right in the middle of all the action. When they return to school they are greeted by their new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher, All-star “Mad-Eye” Moody; a one-eyed ex-aura whose replacement eye has the ability to see through walls. They also learn that for the first time in several years Hogwarts will be hosting the “Tri-Wizard Tournament”; a competition between three of Europe’s biggest magical schools that involve a series of trials that must display both physical and magical ability.

Overall I thick that Harry Potters books are really talented and I am not surprised that J K Rowling is living a marvelous life she deserves it, I hope that she also countinues to make and produce books like this ones or start a new seares, I am looking forward to her next book.
