Hi guys! Happy Monday, today I’m going to be reviewing The Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany & Jack Thorne.
I have to say that I wasn’t a fan of this. I think they should have left the story alone because they tried to make it something it wasn’t, and they tried to please all the readers, but by doing that it just crushed the story.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by: J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany & Jack Thorne: It’s nineteen years later and Harry and his friends have grown up, got married and had kids. Albus, Harry’s second son is off to Hogwarts for the first time, but unlike Harry, he doesn’t care for it. Harry and Albus have a constant struggle before all hell breaks loose, running away to try and rewrite the past. This novel was like every version of the future Rowling could come up with, which is supposed to satisfy the reader, and any diehard fan of the original series, but it just comes off as really unnecessary. Dealing with time travel, the novel goes back and forth between different realms and ‘what if’ situations. Sure it was great to revisit and see old characters again, but this time it felt like it should have been left alone. There definitely were great character developments through both Albus and Scorpius and Albus and Harry, which was nice to read, but the plot was just too overplayed and quite frankly boring; who wants to read about ‘what if’ situations? Also, the whole Voldemort plotline was strange; this whole novel was strange, it had its good, and its bad, but for the most part it feels like it was created for nostalgia’s sake.
