Review: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I can’t believe we’ve been given the amazing opportunity to see how our favorite characters turned out. To see them amidts another great adventure. It feels like all the revivals that Netflix has been giving us with X-Files, and with Fuller House, etc. But with Harry Potter, its just a dream come true. Yes it is in play format… which at first annoyed me. I really wanted more – a new book, a new series… but the script format melts into the background pretty fast when you are reading about such loved characters. To see them go through so much, so many years later, was an amazing gift.

Beware spoilers below! 

I love the way that the group grew up!! Hermoine the Minister of Magic is just perfect. Of course she is. Harry is the head of magical defense, and Ron is running the Weasley magic shop with his brother. We don’t see much of their children overall, but we do see Albus Potter and Scorpius Malfoy= the stars of this story.

I loved that they used time turners. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was one of the funnest books to read because of all the time stuff. And this one goes so much farther in that. The time-plot allows us to see characters who were gone. We got to see Snape again, and he got to know that he is considered a hero, and that Harry even named his son after him. He is touched, and I cried of course. And to have the whole plot turned on its head when Longbottom is killed because he killed Nagini which enabled Voldimort’s death! was amazing. He was a really underappreciated character who really saved the day at the end. I love that Draco had such a large role as well. Nice to see him being a part of the group. There is just so much!!

I loved this. I am glad to have gotten to read it. Yes I wish it was longer, and in book format, and I wish it had been dragged on for 7 books as a new “Albus Potter” series… but since we didn’t get that, this was still just amazing. All other Harry Potter fans should agree. ♥
