“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: Parts One and Two” By J.K. Rowling Review

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.

Another great book from the Wizarding Word. Even thou it isn’t a book book and instead it is a Play which was first shown in 2016 in London. But it is still amazing and incredible as the rest of the Harry Potter universe books.

The plot wasn’t the greatest thing I’ve seen because there were a lots of anticipation build which would lead to nothing. So that’s what made me most disappointed in this book but this book had the biggest Harry Potter vibe to it because it was about friendship, adventure, the battle between good and evil and it was also about the fact that the people you expect less to be non your side might in fact have been on your side from the beginning.

The main characters of this book weren’t Harry, Ron and Hermione but rather Albus Severus Potter and Scorpius Malfoy. But of course we get a lots of Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny and Draco in this book but they aren’t in the spotlight of this book.  

We also got some Severus Snape and Professor McGonagall in it which made so fucking glad to see them. And it defeilty reminded me why Severus Snape is my all time favourite character in the Wizarding World.

Albus Severus Potter and Scorpius Malfoy weren’t the same amazing characters as Harry, Ron and Hermione but I still liked them because Albus Severus Potter was just like Harry in a way and Scorpius Malfoy was a much kinder version of Draco, but we all know that Draco is the OG here.

I felt like Albus Severus Potter and Scorpius Malfoy would be so much better characters if they were given more time for us to like them but also more time to develop themselves as independent characters rather than the kids to Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy.

This book was cute, sweet, fun and it reminded me why I love Harry Potter books so much as I do but it wasn’t the same as 7 original books. Because it had the Harry Potter vibe to it but it leaked the adventure, danger, fun, discovering yourself part about it as the 7 original books had for me at least. This book had the charm of the original books but it didn’t have the strength to the original books.

Of course this book is a script of the play so it didn’t have the same aspects as the original books so it can’t be compared with them in a way. But after reading this book it made want to see that play in real life for some reason. 

I Give This Book 4 / 5
