A book you have certainly heard of, it came out a few months ago, The script of the play presented in London, please read on for my review of
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
Before you start reading this, you should have in mind that even if it’s advertised as the eighth story, the Cursed Child doesn’t have the feeling of the Harry Potter books.
I knew this and I can say I enjoyed reading it.
Yes, the book has plot holes. Several and you will see them from the very beginning.
But if you survive and skip them, the Cursed Child will keep you glued.
Even if I started with low expectations and was annoyed withf the plot holes, the book is a page turner. And for an actual script, that says a lot!
It includes characters we love, characters we hate, old friends of ours that we missed.
I had read several spoilers before and knew a few things about the plot and characters, I still liked it very much!
It was very nice to go back to that world, even under these very different circumstances.
To be honest, I would have preferred to watch the play, and perhaps read the script after as well. But since I don’t live in London, I’ll have the script to keep me company.
For those of you that haven’t read it yet but plan to, please move past the plot holes and try to imagine the play being acted out in your mind. You will enjoy it better this way.

"The Eighth Story. Nineteen Years Later.
Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, a new play by Jack Thorne, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The play will receive its world premiere in London’s West End on July 30, 2016.
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."
