Publisher's Summary

‘There will be three tasks, spaced throughout the school year, and they will test the champions in many different ways ... their magical prowess - their daring - their powers of deduction - and, of course, their ability to cope with danger.'

The Triwizard Tournament is to be held at Hogwarts. Only wizards who are over seventeen are allowed to enter - but that doesn't stop Harry dreaming that he will win the competition. Then at Hallowe'en, when the Goblet of Fire makes its selection, Harry is amazed to find his name is one of those that the magical cup picks out. He will face death-defying tasks, dragons and Dark wizards, but with the help of his best friends, Ron and Hermione, he might just make it through - alive!

Having become classics of our time, the Harry Potter stories never fail to bring comfort and escapism. With their message of hope, belonging and the enduring power of truth and love, the story of the Boy Who Lived continues to delight generations of new listeners.

What the critics say

"To call Dale a 'reader' of books is like saying Monet was a Sunday painter." (Los Angeles Times)

Voldemor ?

I liked this rendition but I originally was listening to the Stephen fry audiobooks, which I did prefer. I think the biggest reason for this was that he actually said the "t" at the end of Voldemort. This version does not and it drove me bonkers.

Jerky, uneven reading and tone.

Reader didn't gage the tone of the characters whatsoever! Appallingly overdone voice acting and misinterpretation of every character and their mood + pathetic interpretation of female characters and any sarcasm or other conversational quirks. It really feels like the reader could calm down a little - this story has a serious tone and it would really help the listeners mood. Otherwise I feel exhausted listening.

Fantastic!

Listened while I cooked, got ready for work, drove to work, while at work. I love being transported to the wizarding world of Harry Potter. I enjoyed Jim Dale's performance with exception of a few characters, which conflicted with the voice I associate them with (film actors) and I still don't know how I feel about it. I cringe with his Malfoy voice, though Malfoy is meant to be irritating so it's a job well done.

Narrator is good.

Only real complaint I have is the narrarator. His voice is fine, but many of his character voices are often very cartoonish and over the top. Some of his voices really take away immersion.

“Harreeeeeeeeee”

Ive already listened to the first three Harry Potter books on audible after reading the hard covers three times through and watching the movies count less time but they are just as exciting every time I hear the story. The only thing I can’t stand is every time hermione says Harry it sounds like harreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee and I can’t stand it. Other wise everything is great.

Why must all the women be sniveling?

I know it’s sacrilege to say anything against Jim Dale, but why do all the women always sound like their whining? Why can’t Hermione say “Harry” instead of “Harrrrrrrreee”? It’s so upsetting to hear this voice. I wish we could get the Stephen Fry versions in the US.

Go with stephen fry's reading

Stephen frys reading is much better than this one. Jim dale uses the same voice for tons of characters and does a poor job of capturing appropriate tones in the dialog given the situation or descriptive text that j.k. Rowling used describing the line(s)

Amazing Story! Poor App

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes because it's Harry Potter!

What other book might you compare Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Book 4 to and why?

No comparison period.

Which scene was your favorite?

The Second Task

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was shocked by the ending, didn't see that coming.

Any additional comments?

Audible, even though I love that you have added Harry Potter to your list of books I am also upset that each chapter of every Harry Potter book is missing it's chapter title which ruins the experience of this wonderful story but it is also disrespectful to J.K. Rowling and the art form of writing to totally disregard what Rowling wrote. If Rowling wanted the chapters to just be numbered she could have easily done that; she didn't; she named every chapter; the chapter titles enhance the experience not just an after thought. They are also functional because I may not always use the bookmarks or remember the number of the chapter I left off at. Often times I spot the chapters name and immediately know where I am in the story. You are the only app that I know of that doesn't include the chapter titles in there app. Please change your app to include the chapter titles for all digital audiobooks you sell.

It doesn't get any better than this

Jim Dale is without a doubt one of the top 3 narrators I have ever heard, and I have been an audio book addict for 10 years. The book needs no review, as it is as masterful as its six sisters. This is by far the most well spent credit I have ever used, and I look forward to completing the entire collection.

Truth is Generally Preferable to Lies

“We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.”
― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

8 July 2000. By this time. everyone was on the Harry Potter train. Steven King was reviewing Goblet of Fire for the New York Times, and news was out that they were going to be making Harry Potter into a movie. This book was released simultaneously in the United Kingdom by Bloomsbury and in the United States by Scholastic. It was a phenomenon. It won the Hugo. We all felt it. Grandmas who didn't read kids books were having the first three foisted on them.

This was also when I discovered how funny JK Rowling was. Don't get me wrong she was funny before, but Goblet of Fire pushed not only the gas on length, but also her sharp wit. As the team (Harry, Ron and Hermione) is growing up, so the humor gets a little richer and the plot starts getting a bit darker.

I did not care for Jim Dale’s voice. I felt it was a poor choice for the narration.

Only with Acceptance can There be Recovery

Story: Goblet of Fire is definitely one of the better stories in the series. The previous three were really good and I admit that Prisoner of Azkaban is still one of my favorites, but Goblet of Fire really lets the magic start to shine! The Tri-Wizard tournament and all the tasks were so captivating and illustrated so brilliantely that it was hard to stop listening. It's also interesting getting a look at the character progression and how they develop and also how the story continues to grow. You'll find a full story here, with twists, turns, witt, suspense and more.

Performance: Once again, this was another great performance. Jim Dale does a great job of capturing the characters and I believe gets them pretty spot on. More and more characters are introduced in the books and he finds a way to give them unique voices.

Overall: I really don't know what to say about this story to do it justice. The Tri-Wizard tournament and all the detail within the three tasks was excellent. The maze at the end and how completely different it was from the movie (I've only seen the movie up until now)- that really surprised me because I thought the movie would be at least somewhat similar. The amount of detail that somehow continues to grow and continues to develop the story is amazing. This is definitely a great story with great narration that can be enjoyed over and over again.

Hareeeeey!

I LOVE the whole Harry Potter series. Why does this narrator continue to say Harry's name drawn out like "Haaareeeey" when he quotes one of the characters. He does it for Hagrid as well. It is so very annoying.
