Sudeenly a tragedy happens and their love might not last forever. But they still continue. Its a very sad ending but worth reading. If you saw the movie and think i shloud not read the book, tha'ts a wrong decision! Pls read the book. Its way more better than the movie.

I just finished the book Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I really liked that book as I love the Harry Potter series. In this book, Harry Potter is forced to participate in a new, mysterious event taking place at Hogwarts. This event hasn't taken place for hundreds of years. The tasks are very dangerous and as usual, Harry will find himself in trouble. Will he be able to get himself out of it? Read the book to find out!
