Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

A Screenplay by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany

Storyline: 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.

Okay, so I’ve basically heard nothing but bad things about this book since it came out. So I’ve been scared of reading it, and I went into it basically expecting to hate it. So I was surprised that I didn’t hate it as much as everyone else seems to. Don’t get me wrong, it was a horrible Harry Potter book (when you compare it to the originals) but if you kind of separate it and read it as like a fan fiction or something, then it wasn’t too bad I guess. Although I hated the script style of reading, I think that if it was adapted to an actual book it could have been way better in my opinion.

The scenes feel so rushed half of the time. The story seems so unbelievable, I didn’t even know how to process half of it. The characters you grew up loving were no where in sight. They we’re all cold and uninviting. The smart Hermione seemed lost, stupid and annoying, Ron and Harry were even not like themselves at all. I found Ginny to be the only one that actually felt like the real Ginny. So in conclusion It definitely wasn’t a good Harry Potter book, like at all… but I don’t think it was AS BAD as the world made it out to be.. Does that make sense? Because I’ve definitely read way worse books!

I rate this book
