Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire - J.K. Rowling, Mary GrandPré

This one got off to a slow start and as a result felt a tad bit too long, but the final 1/3 of the book was amazing.  If Rowling had cut out the uninteresting Quidditch World Cup, the plight of house elves, and the Yule Ball and focused mainly on the Triwizard Tournament, this would have been a 5 star book all around.
