I did my waiting...
Rating : ☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺
Do I recommend it : YES TIMES 1000
Would I reread it : Hell yeah
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is in fact the eighth story. Although very different, as we follow their children, the main characters we love so much are with us, and so much more.
↙ What I didn't like about the book :
Probably the fact that it was in play form, and did somewhat read like a fan fiction. It isn't a bad thing at all, however, because it reads super easily, but I think that having an actual novel would've made the experience better. The fact that it was a play, yet is still called the 8th story, bugs me quite a bit, because it could've been the start of another series. J.K. Rowling, how about you learn from Rick Riordan, and keep writing and building on this world, wouldn't you? Just kidding, you're my queen and everything you write is amazing.
But imagine if the Harry Potter series had as many books as Rick Riordan's novels... Wow.
↗ What I liked about the book :
The characters the plot the writing the everyTHING.
I was not disappointed AT ALL. The characters are as authentic as you remember them being, some being even more lovable (Snape for example) and, like Draco said in the book (SPOILER ALERT) "I'd sell my soul to spend another minute with her (Astoria)". I'd sell my soul for another book, tbh.
I'm so sorry for the short review, but I have nothing bad to say about it. Everything that I wanted was here, and I'm so happy we got to spend another book with our favorite childhood characters. I wish I could see the play, but this will do!
I'm so happy. Sad that I finished it (The "The End" murdered my soul), but so happy I had that extra time with the characters. Thank you, J.K. Rowling, for my childhood, teenage years, and for my adulthood. I know Harry Potter will be present!
