    3 12 stars I completely get why many HP fans will be disappointed with this but I have to admit I really enjoyed it I'd love to see this story play out on stageSo yeah I understand the sad feelings Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has a completely different vibe Aside from being a play it's also a mature character driven less magical story It does not feel like an eighth Harry Potter book at all; there's a real disconnect between this play and the other seven novels And you know what? I'm so glad I guess it's just what you're hoping for To be honest I never wanted another Harry Potter book The thought of extending a series I loved so much actually made me NOT want to read this I got to the end of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and thought it was magical perfection the story had completed its arc in full and I put it aside feeling a slight melancholy but a whole lot of satisfaction I didn't want However if you went crazy needing from the HP series you'll probably be disappointed by this If you feel there's a gap where something HP is missing then I don't think this will fill it Separate the two in your mind and you have a better chance of liking it Because this is something different and I'm happy about itFirst of course it's a play Right away it's going to be something unlike what we've seen before I don't usually love to read plays especially modern ones but this one is very readable because the dialogue is wonderful I don't know why people are saying it's so obvious JKR didn't write most of this because I think her style is all over it the very fact that this play which is meant to be viewed on stage can be just as easily read like a book tells me JKR had a lot of inputAlso it's funny Much consistently comical than the books but with the same style of humour ie lots of Ron being a buffoon Hermione If some part of Voldemort survived in whatever form we need to be prepared And I’m scaredGinny I’m scared tooRon Nothing scares me Apart from Mum The plot leaves a little something to be desired Again it feels different from the main series It's not so much about the world and magic but about relationships conflicts particularly between Harry and Albus and the dialogue between characters I suppose this makes sense in a play where the story unravels through dialogue and not through an omniscient narratorAnd as I touched upon earlier it feels older I don't know how well kids will appreciate the jokes about growing old and how Ron now says oof every time he sits down Or the family drama between Harry and his son Albus But I liked it I'm happy with this addition I truly am If it had been too similar to the seven novels I feel it would have risked reopening a series that had been closed in a great place Instead we have something very uniue and for me very entertaining Some of the staging directions also leave me excited about seeing the play when I win the lottery or acuire a magic wand maybeOne thing I have to say that I said in another comment thread NOW it's time to stop This was a risky experiment and it turned out to be fun but JKR needs to leave this world alone now I really do not want to read about old age Harry Ron and Hermione rolling around in magical wheelchairs So just stopBlog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Youtube | Store

    It was alright It was just alrightI know I gave this 4 stars but to be honest JK Rowling can write a dictionary with Harry Potter illustrations and I'd probably give it 4 stars so my rating is almost irrelevant here given my extreme biasThe thing is it was cute it was sweet it was entirely nostalgic to see the old crew again but I hated the play format As a person who grew up with Harry Potter and who is in her early 30s now I feel like I grew up with Harry Potter and the crew and with the advent of this book I have in fact grown old with them It was lovely to see them again It was like meeting old friendsI don't feel old I'm a responsible person for sure but I feel young at heart When we're young adulthood responsibilities just the prospect of adulting seem so dauntingthen one gets there and it's like well I'm as immature as I ever was I love fun as much as I ever did Growing old isn't that bad And seeing the old crew being as much as they ever were brings joy into my not yet old and grizzled heartI could do without the kids to be honest Oh sure they're little Potter and Granger Weasley spawns but come on nobody ever has and nobody ever will win me over as much as their parents whom I have loved the instant we met them on the Hogwarts ExpressOk maybe not RonBut I digress The kids aren't all bad I rather like little Scorpius actually SCORPIUS And it’s just like my father’s I got his nose his hair and his name Not that that’s a great thing either I mean — father son issues I have them But on the whole I’d rather be a Malfoy than you know the son of the Dark Lord The adults have grown they've changed Some have changed so much that I hardly recognize them Draco for instance I like that he's well nicer now but he doesn't feel like Draco you know? I've been so used to Harry and Draco doing thisThat it's rather discombobulating to see anything otherwiseBut yeah characters are great but the format THE FORMAT I don't even know it's fair of me to judge this based on the fact that I don't like that it's a play because for fuck's sakes IT'S A PLAY Like what did I expect? This may be the most confusing review I've ever written I just don't like the play format It's meant for the stage That means it's up to the skill of the actors to portray what is implied It's up to the audience to interpret nuances It is almost entirely based on dialogue and I hate that I miss Rowling's writing I love Rowling's writing and I wanted of it The play brings up so many things that could have been written so much had it been expanded into a book format The children's growing pains particular that of young Albus Harry's feelings as a parent Draco's struggles with who he was and who he is Further Ron is relegated to little than comic relief Let's be honest I never liked the guy but for him to be much of the same character that he ever was conjures up the image of the try hard middle aged dude and I know that Ron is than thatI like it? I don't like it? I don't know But I would certainly relish watching it on the stage if I ever had the chance It's bound to be better than on paper

    You know I really hadn’t foreseen the publication of something to lengthen Harry Potter’s story after the conclusion that was Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows So the way I see it Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a lovely gift to every Harry Potter fan out there who has hoped and waited a long time to see their wizard friends againThough the plot holes are very visible and spread throughout the story they make for charming and heartfelt conversations between characters so I didn’t mind them all that muchThe best thing about this #8 Harry Potter is how nostalgic it makes the reader feel There are plenty of familiar faces – Harry Ginny Draco Hermione Ron Dumbledore etc – as well as some interesting new ones – Albus Rose Scorpius Lily JamesAdmittedly it was strange to read this supposedly 8th story in Harry Potter’s world in play format but the truth is it was extremely easy to imagine everything play out like in a movie so it all felt alive to meThis isn’t a book you have to read but if you’re a diehard Harry Potter fan I am going to look at you uite incredulously if you decide not to I’m sadly not going to be able to tell you that you're making the right choice because this is so so charming and fun but I can understand people wanting to have their own vision of the Harry Potter cast as adults and their children Yes it's a bit silly but I loved it stillBlog | Youtube | Twitter | Instagram | Google | Bloglovin’

    Now this was a real shame It read like some juvenile fan fiction The characters were utterly lifeless Perhaps seeing this would be better The stage actor’s performances would carry the emotion and drama the dialogue completely failed to conveyThe stage directions were also minimalistic I mean we have a basic location set for us but that’s about all There’s no real expression or sense of urgency All in all it’s just a little flat The plot is feasible even if it felt a little forced but the characters were just poor The new ones aren’t so bad but the old characters Harry Ron and Hermione were barely themselves They just had no depth to them; they’re like reflections of their surface level Ron felt like a piece of furniture that seemed to enjoy inserting several badly times jokes Hermione seemed cold And Harry Harry simply isn’t Harry How can he identify himself as a bad farther? How can he believe that he had no farther figure in his own life? He had many He had inspiration from many great men They taught him a great deal about life and himself in the process So why would a man who has defeated the face of evil be so daunted by giving his son some simple advice? It doesn’t add up Harry Potter would make an excellent farther This didn’t even feel like the same worldYou can connect with me on social media via My Linktree

    I'm not going to rate this I didn't hate it I didn't love it It's just a thing that exists and I'm accepting it for what it is edit I didn't mean for this review to come off as shady as it did I'm going to make a video discussing my feelings further I'm happy that we got to visit this world again but it just wasn't what I was expecting it to be If you LOVED this book that's okay I'm happy that you enjoyed it
