Harry Potter and The Cursed Child

By J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany, and Jack Thorne

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

Ok so it’s a new Harry Potter! But it’s a play! And J.K. Rowling didn’t write it all by herself! But it’s a new Harry Potter! And J.K. Rowling is one of the authors!

So no, it’s not as good as the rest of the series. And it’s not the 8th Harry Potter book. It’s a stand alone story that’s all plot and dialogue. But there’s still the same Harry Potter magic, even if you have to do all the imagining yourself.

I have to say, Scorpius Malfoy was my far and away favorite character in this book. I think he really made the story shine and really identified it as something that J.K. Rowling had her hand in.

If you’re a big Harry Potter fan, you’ll want to read the story because, really, how could you resist?! Just like I know you’ll be seeing Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them when it hits theaters later this year.

I won’t be discussing plot for those of you who haven’t read it yet, but I really need to go see this play. So if someone wants to donate a roundtrip ticket to London and tickets to the show, I wouldn’t say no! Or you know, if we can just hurry up and get this on tour in America. That’d work, too.

One thought on “Harry Potter and The Cursed Child

  1. I actually really liked it as well! Obviously not as much as I loved the original series, and I do hate reading plays…but it was a fun addition with Harry Potter being grown up! And the story line itself was unique and cool!
