Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Jack Thorne
Tuesday, May 23, 2017

Nineteen years after the end of the Harry Potter series, Harry is still struggling to put the past behind him and be a good father to his 3 children as well as work at the ministry of magic. His youngest son, Albus, is struggling too, with the burden of a family legacy he never asked for. But as darkness lurks still in the wake of Lord Voldemort’s destruction, father and son must learn to accept their differences and disappointments to defeat it.

This was a new twist on the ending of Harry Potter. I loved it. All your favorite characters come back to help Scorpius and Albus in different versions of the present. I really loved how they finally put Slytherin in a positive light and how Draco is finally portrayed as a good character with feelings, and how Harry is finally not the only main good character. I loved every part of the book, despite the few plot holes.

Fans of Harry Potter will love this sequel!
