Harry Potter And The Cursed Child | Global WebsiteFrom a nineteen year old captivated by Stephen Fry's complete reading of Philosopher's Stone on New Year's Day of , to a Potter obsessed undergraduate making a wand out of a twig and shoe polish for a Harry Potter party, to a slightly more jaded post grad getting together with an old friend to finish the series with a spectacular 24 hour reading and a slight sense of melancholy in , I can't deny Harry Potter has had a huge effect on my life as an adult. To add a new chapter to that story, reading through the script of Cursed Child with my new and absolutely wonderful wife seems extremely apt, as does writing this review. Cursed Child begins with that famous scene from the epilogue of Deathly Hallows with Harry, Ron, Hermione and indeed Draco Malfoy seeing their children onto the Hogwarts express. The story follows an unlikely friendship between Harry's middle son Albus Severus, and Draco Malfoy's son Scorpius, meeting on the train to Hogwarts in a scene that consciously mirror's Harry's first meeting with Ron and Hermione. One major thing which this story gets spot on and which I recognized instantly is the instant complexity and realism of its characters. Albus is the slightly overlooked middle child of a famous father, while Scorpius has to live with not only a father who is an ex-deatheater, but the suspicion of being thought the son of Lord Voldemort.

I'm glad it ended on a high and i'm content for that to be the end, I feel it would have risked reopening a series that had been closed in a great place. If it had been too similar to the seven novels. Outstanding Sound Design in a Play.

My one stylistic complaint about Cursed Child is that on several occasions the dialogue felt a little heavy handed in the emotional department rather than as is famous in the seriesthe way that characters of that age would actually talk. I can already imagine how how things would have ended otherwise: Harry would have gone back in time and kill Voldemort and save James and Lily. The plot is feasible, even rowlnig it felt a little forced! I thoroughly recommend this book.
