“The eighth story. Nineteen years later.” Yep that’s right I have just read “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” and it was an AMAZING book! Except it wasn’t an ordinary book, it was a rehearsal edition script.
This “script” is about Harry Potter and his child Albus Potter. Harry Potter now is an overworked employee at the Ministry of Magic and is married to Ginnie, obviously. He has three kids, Albus, James and Lily. However, Albus is different from the other two children and doesn’t have a very pleasant relationship with his father, Harry.
In the first few scenes Albus is beginning school at Hogwarts. On the train ride to Hogwarts he makes friends with Draco Malfoy’s son, Scorpius. Not such a fantastic start for a “Potter”. Nonetheless, Albus is chosen to be in Slytherin by the Sorting Hat. Uh, oh Harry is not going to be very happy! Albus and Harry get into a massive fight in scene seven and it ends up with Albus having very unpleasant thoughts about his father.
Before Albus and Harry’s massive fight, Cedric’s father, Amos, comes to visit and asks Harry to bring Cedric back with “The Time Turner.” Harry refuses to give it to him, he lies to Amos and says the Ministry of Magic doesn’t have a Time Turner. Meanwhile Albus is eavesdropping on this intriguing conversation,when Cedric’s niece, Delphi greets him. He jumps in surprise and as soon as he sees Delphi has falls for her. Only if he knew who she really was….
Later on Albus realizes that Harry is lying about not having a Time Turner and decides to heroically steal The Time Turner from The Ministry Of Magic and to save Cedric. However, Albus has no idea what he is getting himself into…
Will Albus finally make his dad proud? Will he stop being friends with Scorpius? Will he realize who Delphi really is? Will he save Cedric? You’ll have to read the book to find out!
This book was as magical and enchanting as all the other Harry Potter books! It was filled with drama on every page! I recommend this to all ages and hope you find it as fabulous as I did! It’s a 10/10 from me!
I found this book so great that I asked my mum if we could get tickets to see the play, but guess what? The two parts of the show are sold out at least until January 2018! Maybe I”ll have to wait for the film if it ever comes out…
