Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is the pivotal fourth novel in the seven-part tale of Harry Potters training as a wizard and his coming of age. "I'm relieved to report that Potter 4 is every bit as good as Potters 1 through 3 . . . The fantasy writer' job is to conduct the willing reader from mundanity to magic. This is a feat of which only a superior imagination in capable, and Rowling posses such equipment" (Stephen King, The New York Times Book Review). It is the basis for the 2005 film starring Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson.
