Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Quote: “Hermione Granger, I’m being bossed around by Hermione Granger… And I’m mildly enjoying it.”

Blurb: The Eighth Story. Nineteen years later.

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 a 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.

Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany, and Jack Thorne, the playscript for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was originally released as a ‘special rehearsal edition’ alongside the world premiere in London’s West End in summer 2016. The play opened to rapturous reviews from theatre-goers and critics alike, while the playscript became an immediate global bestseller. This definitive and final playscript includes the conclusive dialogue from the play, as well as extra content.

My review: 

Everyone living above rocks or under rocks know the adventures of Harry Potter and to see a world where he has a next generation is exciting! I didn’t think that I would enjoy the script layout/ written piece but I actually loved it! Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was a great story to read! It had a lot of relation and a lot of feelings beaming from my heart to the characters, especially Albus. I highly recommend this story!
