The good things about this book include Mad Eye Moody's bouncing ferret, the intrigue surrounding the ex-death eaters in the castle, The Weasley twins jokes, the return of Dobby, the return of Voldemort. I liked the darker tone to this book and the ones to come, and poor Cedric's death was sad. The hormones are starting to fly as well which made a good addition to the book.
The one thing that bugged me a bit was Hermione and her SPEW campaign. Her attempts to free the elves against their will was really annoying me. Hermione, let them get on with it!!! Leaving clothes hidden is unfair and would trick elves into getting freedom that they don't want
