Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (audio) by J.K. Rowling

Harry cannot win because even when he wins he loses.  Sucks to be him.  No, really.  But every time I read this book I wonder how Dumbledore failed to notice what was up with Moody.  I know how obviously but he is the super genius top wizard and all.  And I still get irritated at Fudge's reaction at the end.  Talk about blinders!  And Voldemort is such a talky villain.  Aren't they all though?

Anyway, Goblet of Fire is not my favorite though I don't dislike it or anything.   It's a long book for the story that it tells and it's nice to see more of the wizarding world and all.  And knowing the ending makes spotting the clues more fun, for this book and the series as a whole.

  2. @Amanda - You know, because he won't just shut up and kill Harry. He has to talk it out first.

    @Juju - Jim Dale is a wonderful narrator! I love him.
