Review: That’s right, the wait is finally over!
It was safe to say that I was waiting for the Amazon delivery man to arrive and I ended up finishing the book within hours. I couldn’t put it down!
So, this new novel is based on the new play ‘Harry Potter and The Cursed Child’ and is about Harry, his two sons and a daughter. They are off to Hogwarts to start their new adventure but they notice strange things going on with their son Albus..
Will we see people from the past? More encounters? Love? Death? You’ll have to wait and see for yourself.
And I’m not going to say anything else about the storyline, but there’s a lot of back and forth in the story and it is also written in a script format. I wasn’t too sure about this at first and I’m still not too sure, to be honest..
I found it a little difficult to keep up with each character (past, present, future) but I got there in the end!
I really enjoyed this though and I cannot wait for some more Harry Potter related goodness! Sadly I haven’t got tickets for the play yet but I would absolutely love to see it, especially after reading this!
This book definitely brings back all of the ‘Harry Potter feels’ from the past novels and you won’t be disappointed 🙂
