In this book, two exciting events took place, the Quidditch World Cup and the Triwizard Tournament. Two, seemingly unrelated, events, but with much hidden secrets among the spectators and judges. So much so that I took a long time to finish this novel. (There were 37 chapters in this book.)
1) sportsmanship: Both of these events were more of a spectator sport. Naturally, everyone wanted to win. Some even gambled to see who would win. The ideal situation would be having honest competitors. Cheating apparently not approved, but was known to even happen!
This is similar in real life. How many times have we discovered that in our sporting events?
2) loyalty: Which side are you on? This question constantly popped up in my mind as I was reading this book. Back and forth, the question of loyalty to which side was brought up.
The tug of war between family and society is a constant struggle for many of us. What is expected of us from our families and our work place sometimes can be conflicting.
Yay Or Nay
I would recommend that you read the previous books before you pick this one up. There are so many characters with background stories that you should know.
To be honest, I loved the previous ones more. However, you need to read this one to follow the rest of the series. So, YAY, if you plan to finish the series.
