Review : Harry Potter and The Cursed Child

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

I wanted to do a fun book for my first review back and what better book that a Harry Potter book. I finally got around to reading the Harry Potter series while I was away and I fell in love! I can't believe it took me so long to read such an incredible series! Since finishing the series years ago, I had missing the wizarding world and when I heard that a new book was being released I got excited and skeptical. Especially when I saw that it was gonna be in play format and that two other writers had teamed up with J.k. Rowling. But I decided to not let that influence my thoughts going in to read the book. And honestly, it was a really good read! It was fun and quick and I loved seeing what all my favorite characters were up to now that they'd grown up! And surprisingly, it was a lot darker than I had expected! I was a little depressed with to see a certain relationship be so tense and troubled. But that honestly was what kept me hooked! I wanted to see how it was all gonna turn out at the end!

This book isn't like the other Harry Potter books. Being in play format, its not as detailed and a lot quicker to read than the other books. But if you already read the other books than you don't really need that for this story. This is basically just that! A story. And it was honestly very good and well done! If you're like I was and are skeptical, don't be! I genuinely enjoyed reading it! Going back to that world was strange yet perfect and I thank Rowling, Tiffany, and Thorne for taking me back again!
