Review: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany, and Jack Thorne

10.09.2016

Genre: Play
Ages: 9 and Up

     I wouldn't go so far as to call this a "Book" review, because this story was actually written in the format of a play script. I was quite excited when I started reading this addition to the Harry Potter story, but overall it didn't live up to my expectations. While reading it, the plot felt forced, and I couldn't relate to the characters. What's more, Harry, Ron, Ginny, and Hermione acted differently then they did in the original books. It was almost as if they were entirely new characters. Additionally, the whole play didn't seem like something J.K. Rowling wrote. The style was too casual (for lack of a better word), and it just didn't match up with her previous books, all of which I thoroughly enjoyed. If you're a Harry Potter fan, I would still encourage you to pick up a copy of The Cursed Child, but if you're not too interested in the Wizarding World I really wouldn't bother reading it.

About:
Albus Potter has always felt like an outsider. He is the lone Slytherin in his family, has only one friend, and feels uncomfortable with the fact that the famous Harry Potter is his father. One day though, Albus takes a journey through time, and it results in something that will change his life forever.
