Pottermore Rated: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
The fourquel brings the terrifying and death-defying Harry Potter villain closer to meeting Harry Potter. The Gryffindor student is incidentally and mysteriously chosen to participate in the Twi-Wizard tournament alongside foreign exchange wizards and Hufflepuff's very own Cedric Diggory. Today we are showcasing Pottermore and its recent installment of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Let's rate!
Chapter 3 - The Tiny Owl - Not included in this chapter is narration by Jim Dale, however, we can still hear Hedwig cooing in the background. There are plenty of letters to read in this chapter such as Ron's invitation to the Quidditch World Cup. Items to collect include an Xaver Rastick chocolate frog card.
Overall Review: 3 out of 5 owls
While the activity for the fourth book is a bit tame for the first eleven chapters available on Pottermore, there are some beautiful illustrations. They remind me of the amazing cover and chapter art by Marie Grand Pre for the first release of the series' books - colorful, bold, and magical. Looking ahead I can't wait to see the artwork for the Twi-Wizard tournament but do not anticipate the grim death of Cedric Diggory.
Reading about portkeys and the floo network was interesting, and I enjoy the feature of hearing JK Rowling narrating the information she shares. If more information could be made available, I would have loved to read how she conjured up the dark mark insignia for Voldemort or even some background story to the Durmstrang school. The narration to Jim Dale is not available for every chapter, which is sometimes welcoming and sometimes missed. What's your favorite chapter of Goblet of Fire so far?
