Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Potterheads have mixed responses to new manuscript

It has always been hard to be Harry Potter, but being his son doesn’t seem to be any easier for Albus Severus Potter. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is centered around Albus and Harry trying to live with the past, and the many bumps along the way. Within the first chapter we meet one of my new favorite characters Scorpius Hyperion Malfoy. Scorpius is of course the son of Draco Malfoy, and as being such Scorpius was looked down upon by many. Not only was there amazing new characters, but is it wonderful to once again be with the characters we know and love so much.

Readers learn all about the aftermath of the war, and where our characters are now. It is thrilling to watch all the old and the new Harry Potter characters go on a venture through time and space.

The negativity surrounding Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is just astounding. It is true that it is not the eighth book like the fans have wanted for so long, but a manuscript. Also, the manuscript is indeed not written by J.K Rowling herself, but instead by Jack Thorn.

Nonetheless, any true Harry Potter fan will love this installment like all the others, just because it brings us all back to a world full of magic and adventure. There is no way this review could give a glimpse of how truly incredible it feels to be back in the Harry Potter world, so readers will just have to experience it for themselves.
