Harry Potter and the Cursed Child may have been one of the best things about 2016. When hearing about the release of the script, it was music to my ears. I couldn’t wait to read the next instalment of the Potter adventures. Now finally, after an almost embarrassingly long time, I’ve finished reading
There was a lot to love in the story: Albus and Scorpius’ friendship; Ron and Hermoine’s marriage; going back to Hogwarts. I felt the Harry Potter magic from the first page and I loved every minute. However, I did feel deep down that the characters were odd – it didn’t feel like Harry, almost as if he wasn’t genuine. Despite this small issue, I loved the book. As always, there was an exciting plot, filled with disaster, adventure and magic. There was also even more lovable – and some loathsome – characters which completed the story. Based purely on the script, I would sell my soul to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child live on stage.
