The Eighth Story. Nineteen Years Later.

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.

    Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a script that follows two teenage wizards, Albus Severus Potter and Scorpius Malfoy as they navigate their years through Hogwarts, that comes with many adventurous and unique twists. Personally i have mixed feelings about this book. It is actually a script. This aspect of it doesn’t really help with drawing in and exciting a reader from the very start because you are getting so used to the format. I couldn’t imagine many people that aren’t fans of Harry Potter reading it, just because the script can become very confusing, and if you aren’t very familiar with some characters backstory’s it can be hard to understand. I am actually a huge fan of the plot though. I feel that it kept me on the edge of my seat, and there were some moments that the story had me so stressed out that i had to put it down. Once you get familiar with the script format, you enjoy it much more. I believe that if it was an actual book and not a script, i would have been transported back to that magical place i had been taken to with the other seven Harry Potter books, but this book fell a little short.
    I would recommend this to someone who thinks they would be fine with the script format, who loves exciting and intriguing reads, and really any Harry Potter fans.


  2. This is the first book in the harry potter serries. It’s the start of Harrys journey through Hogwarts. This book is my favourite because its so interesting and you can stop reading it!
    My favourite part in this book is when harry finds out he’s been accepted into Hogwarts!
    I liked this because his aunty and uncle who he grew up with are muggles and don’t believe in magic. That means when harry got accepted they didn’t want harry to see they letter. Later on the owl from Hogwarts keeps sending letters until they get very mad and let harry go. My least favourite part if I could change something in this spectacular book it would be to make the chapters a little shorter! They are incredibly long and you usually don’t want to stop a book in the middle of they chapter. I would absolutely recommend this book to others. It is such an entertained book and its very descriptive. I would say a adventurous person would like this book because harry, Ron and Hermine are very adventurous and get into a lot of trouble.


  3. The cursed child is a great book! I really liked how it summed up the lives of all the characters. We get an insight into how everyone’s lives turned out and how life is like is the modern wizarding world. The book is written as a play and I didn’t love this as much as the usual books because you can’t put as much detail into a play as in a book. But, by reading the dialogue and where the characters are and what they do, I can imagine their lives and what sort of characters they are. One of my favourite characters is Malfoy because I liked seeing how he grew up to have a kid and to eventually actually get along with Harry. I still really liked reading this even though it wasn’t my favourite in the series. I rate this a 7/10 and I recommend it to age 12 onwards. It was still a great end to a great series!

    The Cursed Child is really good. It is a great finish to the series and it completes the characters’ stories and lives really well. It provides great information on how the characters lives turned out and what jobs they ended with or who each of them married. It is well written and a great read. I don’t think it is the same incredible standard of the main series but it’s still an enjoyable read. The characters are interesting and the storyline is really good. The characters are relatable because they feel like they have to prove themselves to be worthy. Overall, it is a really good novel but it isn’t quite the same standard as the previous books. 7/10!!


  5. I have waited so long for this book to finally be published, and it is an amazing end to the Harry Potter series. The only thing I don’t like about it is that it is written in a script. I also found that there was a lot of characters introduced throughout the book which made the storyline harder to follow. Other than that I loved this book and the way it travels through the past books that JK Rowling has written. I loved this book and recommend it to anyone 11+, It is an amazing end to my favourite book series. I rate it 9/10!

    This is a great read and a great show as well must I say, I loved Albus Severus Potter and his interesting and diverse charchater and I also find it intersting how he was sorted into slytherin, my favourite charchter is scourpious, albus friend, he is the son of Draco Malfoy and Astoria Greengrass, but he is also accused of being voldemorts son, they travel back in time with Delphi Diggory who turns out to be voldemorts real child, all they wanted was too save cederic diggory but that ends up putting rippes in time and making a huge mess out of everything. I found this facinating and also found the show and it’s speacial effects. I reccomend reading this and also going to see the show.

    This book made a amazing finish to the Harry Potter series however I did not like the fact that the book was written as a script I would have preferred to have a book like the rest of the series as the contain way more information that you don’t see in the movies or in this case the play. However as this book was not just the works of JK Rowling this is why it does not sound like a normal Harry Potter book so I still thoroughly enjoyed reading it. My favourite part of this book was when we got to find out what would happen if people made different choices as it shows us that one move can make a difference. My favourite character was Scorpius Malfoy as I loved his storyline and we get to see that not all Slytherins are bad and they have a truly caring nature for their friends. As I mentioned previously if I could change one this about this book I would change it so it was a story format and not a script format. I would recommend this book to any Harry Potter fans who miss Harry and his adventures. As this continues the Harry Potter world and as all fans know the Harry Potter Would will never die.

    The book was well written, like the rest of the series. But this book did not meet the same standards as the other harry potter books. Perhaps this was due to jk rowling writing the book with two other writers and not just by herself, but it lacked a lot the flare the other books have. It was still a very good read, yet it was a bit dull throughout the story. The characters, however were still very interesting and the characters from the pervious books still had the same characteristics which was nice. The book had a great ending, and it was nice to bring ‘harry potter’ back after so many years.

    I have read all the Harry Potter books and think that they are all amazing. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was one of those books that you just can’t put down. I think that you should read all the other Harry Potter books before you read this one. I like how J.K Rowling made the book into a play and I think that it was something different. I would recommend this book to people from 12 onwards. My favourite character would have to be Albus Severus Potter. He is my favourite character because he so adventurous and he is a risk taker. I also like it how he uses all the options to try to save someone. Overall, I think that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was an amazing book. I rate it a 9/10.

    I loves this book so much. My favourite character is Delphi Diggory also known as Voldemort’s daughter. My favourite part in the book is when Albus Potter and scorpious Malfoy go back in time to the second challenge in the trywizard torbament and they enlarge Cedric Diggorys bubble head charm so that he floats out of the competition. I also love when Delphi Diggory gets to meet Voldemort because people may see her as a evil wizard but she really just wants to meet her father. I really hope that this book becomes a movie one day. This book is so funny and heartfelt. Thank you J.K Rowling


  11. I have always loved the Harry Potter series and when I found out there was going to be a sequel that followed the lives of the next generation I was excited. Even though the book is a script is is quite easy to follow and a decent book. However I didn’t entirely enjoy the book as much as I hoped I would. I would have much preferred the book to not be so complicated and plot twisting. Having certain characters that were in the book threw me off enjoying the book as much as I would’ve liked to. The main concept and plot was a little confusing and not as enjoyable as I would’ve hoped but overall it was a decent book and I enjoyed reading it for what it was.


  12. I have waited many years for this book to be published, allowing the many children who had grown up with Harry Potter to gain an access into the lives of the characters nineteen years later. As begin the Cursed Child at the place where we as the readers lastly saw the all so famous trio, at Kings Cross Station. All though I deeply loved the Harry Potter Series, I was quite disappointed in the way in which J.K Rowling had written this last book. Split into different acts, it is in a screen play, allowing readers to know who is say what, and who is doing what. As it was confusing in the beginning I started to love the book and truly read and express the book in the way it was supposed to be read. In conclusion I rate this screen play a 6/10.
