Book Review: Harry Potter and The Cursed Child

Book Review: Harry Potter and The Cursed Child

I'm a big fan of the Harry Potter universe. I remember when I first read the first book how much I loved it, and 11 years later I'm still enjoying these characters so much! I was lucky to visit The Wizardly World of Harry Potter a few days ago at Orlando and it was amazing! I can't even describe my excitement and how incredible it was to be there. Even mi fiancé, who haven't read the books, was impressed.

Anyway, I couldn't buy the new book, Harry Potter and The Cursed Child on the realease day, but I guess everything happens for a reason beacuse when I finally could buy it it was on sale! So I waited until my flight back home to relax and read it. Let me tell you, I was feeling very nostalgic to be reading again my favorite characters but also I was expecting more.

First of all, I hate reading scripts. One of the things I like more of these book series are the descriptions, so I wasn't happy reading a script. I knew that before reading it, so i wasn't surprised...just kind of angry with the author. Why waste a perfect and interesting story doing a play? Maybe that's a bit harsh, but I'm not a fan of theater either and most important, I don't think I'll be going to London anytime soon... so I had to settle with the script.

I was happy to know more about their adult life, but I feel that there was so much more!. I understand that it's time to follow the young generation, but I didn't fall in love with them. Maybe I needed more words to like them, but also I felt that this new friendship was kind of forced and too good to be true. Also, many times, specially at the climax, I felt like I was reading a fan-fiction... I mean, seriuosly??

Overall, I liked it but it wasn't what I wanted. It left me dissapointed, I wanted more!! But still, if you're a fan of this universe, is a most read. BTW, I'm re-reading the whole series...
