Harry Potter And the Cursed Child by Jack Thorne, 327 pages
“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 definitely fall in the “liked it” camp. Apparently, I am one of the people who like anything Harry Potter because it’s Harry Potter. That being said, I felt like it was a pretty good story and that kids who have read and enjoyed the books will mostly like this also, assuming that the play format doesn’t distract them from the story.
