I loved the fourth book just as much as the first three. Yes, the tone was darker and there was some "pre-teen romance" stuff going on, but I think Rowling expects her readers to grow up along with Harry Potter. My daughter just turned eight and I won't be passing my HP books along to her for at least another year.

You read the whole thing already?!?

I promised my daughter I wouldn't start it until she did (we have two copies, as the 3rd book had us all trying to read at the same time and one copy wasn't enough). Terra is almost 10, and she insisted on re-reading the others before going on... she's almost finished with #3, so I will probably answer your question in about 2 weeks!

Finished it now, I agree is was quite a bit more intense than the others. I thought the teen-romance was pretty minimal and well done. Overall, I enjoyed it very much and as usual I was surprised once again at the end!

Did anyone notice a "flaw" in the story? (spoiler in this message, don't read the rest of it unless you've already read the book!)

Near the end of the book, when the "spirits" are coming out of Harry's wand, they are coming out in the reverse order of when they were victimized... yet Harry's father comes out first! In all of the stories of what happened he was killed and then Harry's mother was killed, so Harry's mother should have come out first. Is this an oversight on JK Rowling's part or could there be any significance to it?

We noticed it at a Harry Potter mb. We all decided it was a mistake. It's pretty interesting to know adults getting into that!!

This is most likely a flaw because Lord Voldermort was decapacitated soon after he killed Lilly Potter; this makes it impossible to assume James Potter died after Lilly.

We still love you Rowlings!

Re: Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire

There was no flaw because James died before Lily and therefore he would come out after her since it was reverse order.

Re: Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire

You are correct, I caught that flaw, too. James should have come out of the wand after Lily since he died before her and it was in reverse order.
