Book Review: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

The book Harry Potter and the Cursed Child takes place nineteen years after the Battle of Hogwarts, when Harry brought an end to Voldemort's wrath, or so they thought...

What's different about this book is that it has been written as a stage production script using scenes and stage directions. It is currently being performed on stage in London.


When Harry's young son, Albus, attends Hogwarts, everyone expects him to be just like his father, but when the hat was placed upon his head, he was given the title of Slytherin.

There is much irony when Albus's best friend is Scorpius, Malfoy's son, whom we all know had a certain hate for Henry.

When Albus feels that he doesn't measure up to his Father, he seeks to make himself and Scorpius a hero. He uses a stolen time traveler to go back in time so save someone that had died by the hands of Voldemort but, in doing so he lost the one person that truly cared about him.

Can Albus fix the mess that he has made and truly represent his families legacy, or will the darkness take over?

My Opinion: This book is by far one of the best books I've read so far. Once you get passed the the way it is set up as a script, I promise you it wont disappoint. I give it four stars only because I was hoping for an actual book and not a script, but please don't take that into account.
