Review : Harry Potter & The Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany, & Jack Thorne


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.  (From: Goodreads)

Another Harry Potter book!!! The eighth story!!!

My Synopsis:

The story follows Albus, Harry’s son, and Scorpius, Draco’s son, on adventures. Time travelling. And something about Cedric Diggory.


Do I really need to explain why I pick up this book? This is Harry Potter we’re talking about! No doubt that I had to pick up this book! Normally I don’t read play scripts. But…again, this is Harry Potter we’re talking about! I really need to go back to London and watch this!


The Setting:

As we all know, the setting is still the magical world which we know very well.


The Characters:


Albus Severus Potter: Albus is nothing like Potter and yet he is everything like Potter. He’s a Slytherin. He likes to break the rules.

Scorpius Malfoy: Albus’ best friend. It’s funny (but also good) to see that a Malfoy actually gets along well with a Potter.
Poor Scorpius, the boy who used to obey all the rules. He didn’t want to let his friend take the risk himself, so he joined him.

Let’s Get Into Some Details:

1. Time-Turner

Yes. You can definitely say hi to this magical product in this story.


2. Triwizard Tournament, 1994

Yes. This will definitely bring you back to the fourth book.


3. Voldemort

Yes. This terrifying name shows up quite a lot of times.



I am the new past.
I am the new future.
I am the answer this world has been looking for.


I recommend this book to all the people who love Harry Potter!!!
As you can see, I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars.
I believe that most of you are wondering why I only gave out 3 stars while other HP books were 5-starred. I do like this book, but I don’t love it. Besides, my new rating system is very strict. If it’ll make you feel better, I’d rate this book 4 stars under my old rating system.

Happy reading, guys ~ 😀 Hope you all have a nice weekend.
