It's growing dark. . .,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Harry Potter 4 and the Goblet of Fire (Taschenbuch)
Strangely enough the story starts in Little Hangleton. 50 years ago a murder happened in the Riddle House, deserted since these days. The Riddle House? 50 years ago?? Do you still remember Tom Riddle, the malicious diary writer, waiting for Harry in the Chamber of Secrets ? Right. . .
When old Frank Bryce, who was wrongly accused of the assassination of the Riddle family years ago - he's the gardener. . . - detects some flickering light in the unoccupied house one night in August, he heads for the building to have a look. Not for his own good. . .
In the same night Harry awakes from a strange dream. His scar hurts. Is it a sign? A bad one?
After the Quidditch World Cup - Bulgaria vs. Ireland - with some weird occurences and after some pleasant days with the Weasleys, Harry, Ron and Hermione take the well-known express at platform 9 ¾ - their 4th year at Hogwarts starts. And there are news! Professor Dumbledore announces that the Triwizard Tournament will take place, a competition between Europe's three largest Schools for Wizardry : Hogwarts, Beauxbatons and Durmstrang. According to the rules, there will be 3 champions, who have to be at least 17 years old this time. Who will be the champion for Hogwarts ? Is there a chance for Fred and George Weasley, taking an Ageing Potion ? Who will be the winner in the end ?
There are some newly introduced persons - and some of them aren't what they seem to be. You'll never guess till the show-down ! And this is more violent and cruel than ever before - the Dark Lord rises again . . .! Flesh, blood, and bone. . . Really not the right thing for Harry's youngest fans. The end is just a beginning, and a parting of the ways.
There's a bit more psychology in the world of the now 14-year-old adolescent protagonists; there's a quarrel between Ron and Harry, both of them try quite bashfully to get a partner for the Yule ball - with little luck, but „animal magnetism".
I liked Rowlings wordplays best (the famous „can I have a look at Uranus, too, Lavender?" by Ron). She could do that more often !
Well, tomorrow it's Volume V - I hope that Professor Snape will have some nice scenes like he did before. . .
