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.
Easy read, will keep you captivated. 5 cups!
