| BOOK REVIEW | HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD BY JOHN TIFFANY, JACK THORNE AND J.K. ROWLING

Harry Potter ANd The Cursed ChildHarry Potter And The Cursed Child
Author : John Tiffany, Jack Thorne & J.K. Rowling
Series : Harry Potter
Genres : Middle Grade, Fantasy
Publication : July 31st 2016 by Little, Brown

Synopsis : 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.

I enjoyed that book but I can’t compare it to the rest of the series. Nonetheless it was a fast read and I liked it !

They were great men, with huge flaws, and you know what – those flaws almost made them greater.

Plot

We follow Albus, Harry’s son throughout his years at Hogwarts. Being Harry’s son is far from being an easy thing for him.He could become everyone he wants. He chooses to become friend with Malfoy’s son, Scorpius.

On the other side, we’ve got an older Harry’s POV. Older, and having difficulties to connect with his son.

It was an okay read. As I said before, I can’t compare it to the Harry Potter’s series, it’s very different. It’s darker and more mature in a certain way. Neverthelesse, we also can see that J.K. Rowling has not written this book. Because it’s no a book, it’s a play. And I kept that in mind while reading it. It was a whole different reading experience !

Moreover, the plot is much more simplistic in my opinion. Since it’s a play, it hadn’t bothered me at all. I wasn’t expecting more than that to be honest.

From the beginning you can sense that something is off key with one of the characters. I think it’s because it’s a play.

It’s  like a little gift to us, Potterheads. As one, I know I wil read everything  related to Harry Potter.

The truth is a beautiful and terrible thing, and should therefore be treated with great caution.

Characters

  • Albus is struggling with his father’s fame. It’s even more bothering him when he learns he’s a Slytherin. He wants to prove his own value. Even thoughhe is fed up with Harry, his father, he still loves him and seeks his approval. He is kind, soft-heartedand very loyal.
  • Scorpius is badly treated because he is a Malfoy.  Albus is his only friend. I was really touched by Scorpius ! It’s difficult to get attached to characters while reading a play but Scorpius is such a cutie !
  • Delphi is a pretty complex character.
  • Harry is as lost with his role of father as he was as The Chosen One. In a certain way, nothing has changed hahaha !

Despite some bothering points, I really enjoyed it  !

4 stars
