Review: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany, and Jack Thorne



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.


Darkness came from unexpected places indeed! Child #2 saw this book in his school library and checked it out just for me. He did it on a day that had to absolute squat and just that small gesture made me feel so much better. I sat down after the kids had gone to bed and began to read. I had made it 3/4th of the way through before I realized it was 2am and I had to get up in five hours so I could take them to school. I was truly upset that it wasn’t one of those times when my insomnia kicked in and would have allowed me to stay awake and still functional the next day.

Lucky I forgot that it was now Saturday, so no school, but I did get to sleep a bit longer before taking #1 to work. When I got back #2 was awake and I knew there would be no further reading until he was asleep.

Back into, it only took me a little over an hour to finish. I was pleased that it wasn’t as hard to read (script format) as some as my friends posted when they first got it. I was able to feel the characters emotions and was truly shocked about who was revealed as the cursed child.

It did make me sit back for a minute and do the math but I realized my error and all was good. I do hope that J.K Rowling writes this in true novel form and would give anymore insight. Definitely adding this to my to be purchased list and I hope you do too.
