Reviews & Summaries
I thought the majority of this book was actually much less frightening than the previous installment (which was filled with dementors throughout). There was certainly tension as Harry was unwittingly thrust into the Tri-Wizard Tournament and had to face a dragon, an underwater rescue of a friend, and a maze filled with tricks and traps. But those were "normal" kinds of tension. I think the majority wouldn't be that bad to read.
Until, of course, the end, when a friend and classmate is killed (what?!? a kid actually killed in a kid's book?), Voldemort reappears, and Harry is tied and cut against his will. Then there's an actual "duel to the death" and when Harry manages to escape, an apparent betrayal by a teacher he trusted.
There's a lot of deep stuff for a kid at the end of this book. I, of course, love it.
