Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – Book Review

Published Date: July 31, 2016

Pages: 343

Goodreads Synopsis.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

A Friday night well spent. (Yeah, I party hard. Who’s asking?)

Nineteen years after the ending of the original Harry Potter series, we’re thrust back in with our favorite characters, all still friends, all struggling at being parents. A new, or perhaps not so new, darkness is rising and this time, the new kids on the block are the ones fighting it. (Dating myself with that reference.)

I’ve never read a play before that wasn’t Shakespeare. (I’m cultured now.) For most of the story, I forgot that I was reading a play and not one of my favored books. Despite lacking the usual detail of a novel, I was thoroughly enjoying myself. I liked seeing Ron, Hermione, Harry and Ginny as parents and seeing how their children turned out. I have to say that I’m more than a bit disappointed in Rose Granger-Weasley, bit of a twat that one.

A quick and easy dose of the Potter-verse.

  1. Nineteen years? Wow! I’m not a Harry Potter fan at all. Not into magic unless it’s very very BLACK. Nice write up though love but yeah I will never read a Harry Potter book or watch another Harry Potter movie. Cheers 👍🏼

    1. What about your girls? You’re not going to read it to them? CHILD ABUSE! Just kidding lol. This will probably be the only series I ever reread. I have so many books on my list, I just don’t have the time to do it.

  2. Haha I love this review (and the gif at the end!) 😛
    That’s great that you enjoyed this one so much. It is crazy to think just how old Harry Potter is already! lol I refuse to believe it because then it makes ME feel old!
