Harry Potter: The story so far. Book 4[哈利波特情节回顾之第四部]...

Well, let's not waste any words telling you it's Harry Potter season and that we're doing a recap of the story so far.

Here goes Book 4. Lumos!

Goblet of Fire is where the Harry Potter series turns really dark. And it starts with a murder. The opening chapter also establishes a connection between Harry and Voldemort that most Pottermaniacs think has to have deeper significance. When Voldemort kills the Muggle caretaker of his ancestral house, Harry watches it in a dream and wakes up with his scar hurting.

That dream is forgotten as Harry joins the Weasleys for the Quidditch World Cup. The festive ambience is blown to smithereens as a group of Death Eaters -- followers of Voldemort -- attack and the dark mark (skull with a serpent, the mark of Voldemort) appears in the night sky.

But there are grander events unfolding. Hogwarts is hosting the Triwizard Tournament -- a sort of wizard Olympics among three wizard schools -- in which a champion each from three schools will have to go through a series of tasks designed to test their courage, presence of mind and wizard prowess.

Though underage wizards -- wizards come of age when they are 17 -- are not allowed to enter, Harry's name mysteriously appears from the Goblet of Fire, which chooses the champions.

Meanwhile, the new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher, Professor 'Mad Eye' Moody helps Harry negotiate the deadly Triwizard tasks.

But who put Harry's name in? How? And why?

The questions remain nagging even as Harry has his first crush, and queer incidents continue to brew, signalling that evil is definitely afoot.

In Goblet of Fire, the first seeds of a more 'adult' series are sown. Harry grows more confident, falls in love (or so he thinks, like all first crushes), Hermione and Ron begin to realise that what they feel for each other is more than just friendship.

Equally importantly, Voldemort regains his human form. And he overcomes the magic that had so far prevented him from being able to touch Harry.

Filled with delightful little nuggets that you are sure lead up to larger significance as the series progresses, Goblet of Fire is a toe-crusher of a book (it's that thick), but is an engrossing read from the start to the finish.
