    "This is perhaps THE already-classic modern fantasy series. You can't help but be drawn into the magical world Rowling creates, but be aware that you won't be likely to stop after the first. If it's not too late, make sure you read the books before you watch the films."

    "Everyone should read this series. It's a must have for any lover of literature. With ORCS, Dwarves, Elves, and Humans what else could there be needed? Tolkien set the standard for the Fantasy genre and it's a great place to start reading."

    "I am a fan of the Harry Potter series and The Goblet of Fire is definitely my favorite. I really like the action in this book which seems more action packed than the predecessors in the series. I also find it interesting how the characters are shown coping their adolescent struggles and developing into young adults in this stage of the series."
