EBOOK [Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two] author John Tiffany
3 12 stars I completely et why many HP fans will be disappointed with this but I have to admit I really enjoyed it I d love to see this story play out on stageSo yeah I understand the sad feelings Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has a completely different vibe Aside from being a play it s also a mature character driven Cursed Child has a completely different vibe Aside from being a play it s also a mature character driven magical story It does not feel like an eighth Harry Potter book at all there s a real disconnect between this play and the other seven novels And you know what I m so I Was A Stranger glad Iuess it s just what you re hoping for To be honest I never wanted another Harry Potter book The thought of extending a series I loved so much actually made me NOT want to read this I ot to the end of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and thought it was magical perfection the story had completed its arc in full and I put it aside feeling a slight melancholy but a whole lot of satisfaction I didn t want However if you went crazy needing from the HP series you ll probably be disappointed by this If you feel there s a ap where something HP is missing then I don t think this will fill it Separate the two in your mind and you have a better chance of liking it Because this is something different and I m happy about itFirst of course it s a play Right away it s oing to be something unlike what we ve seen before I don t usually love to read plays especially modern ones but this one is very readable because the dialogue is wonderful I don t know why people are saying it s so obvious JKR didn t write most of this because I think her style is all over it the very fact that this play which is meant to be viewed on stage can be just as easily read like a book tells me JKR had a lot of inputAlso it s funny Much consistently comical than the books but with the same style of humour ie lots of Ron being a buffoon Hermione If some part of Voldemort survived in whatever form we need to be prepared And I m scaredGinny I m scared tooRon Nothing scares me Apart from Mum The plot leaves a little something to be desired Again it feels different from the main series It s not so much about the world and magic but about relationships conflicts particularly between Harry and Albus and the dialogue between characters I suppose this makes sense in a play where the story unravels through dialogue and not through an
omniscient narratorAnd as I touched upon earlier it feels older I don t know how well kids will appreciate narratorAnd as I touched upon earlier it feels older I don t know how well kids will appreciate jokes about rowing old and how Ron now says oof every time he sits down Or the family drama between Harry and his son Albus But I liked it I m happy with this addition I truly am If it had been too similar to the seven novels I feel it would have risked reopening a series that had been closed in a reat place Instead we have something very uniue and for me very entertaining Some of the staging directions also leave me excited about seeing the play when I win the lottery or acuire a magic wand maybeOne thing I have to say that I said in another comment thread NOW it s time to stop This was a risky experiment and it turned out to be fun but JKR needs to leave this world alone now I really do not want to read about old age Harry Ron and Hermione rolling around in magical wheelchairs So just stopBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube Store You know I really hadn t foreseen the publication of something to lengthen Harry Potter s story after the conc.

to interpret nuances It is almost entirely based on dialogue and Iinterpret nuances It is almost entirely based on dialogue and I that I miss Rowling s writing I love Rowling s writing and I wanted of it The play brings up so many things that could have been written so much had it been expanded into a book format The children s rowing pains particular that of young Albus Harry s feelings as a parent Draco s struggles with who he was and who he is Further Ron is relegated to little than comic relief Let s be honest I never liked the uy but for him to be much of the same character that he ever was conjures up the image of the try hard middle aged dude and I know that Ron is than thatI like it I don t like it I don t know But I would certainly relish watching it on the stage if I ever had the chance It s bound to be better than on paper Update1 star

Lusion that was Harry Potter and THE DEATHLY HALLOWS SO THE WAY Hallows So the way see it Harry Potter the Cursed Child is a lovely A Little Dinner Before the Play gift to every Harry Potter fan out there who has hoped and waited a long time to see their wizard friends againThough the plot holes are very visible and spread throughout the story they make for charming and heartfelt conversations between characters so I didn t mind them all that muchThe best thing about this 8 Harry Potter is how nostalgic it makes the reader feel There are plenty of familiar faces Harry Ginny Draco Hermione Ron Dumbledore etc as well as some interesting new ones Albus Rose Scorpius Lily JamesAdmittedly it was strange to read this supposedly 8th story in Harry Potter s world in play format but the truth is it was extremely easy to imagine everything play out like in a movie so it all felt alive to meThis isn t a book you have to read but if you re a diehard Harry Potter fan I amoing to look at you uite incredulously if you decide not to I m sadly not oing to be able to tell you that you re making the right choice because this is so so charming and fun but I can understand people wanting to have their own vision of the Harry Potter cast as adults and their children Yes it s a bit silly but I loved it stillBlog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin Now this was a real shame It read like some juvenile fan fiction The characters were utterly lifeless Perhaps seeing this would be better The stage actor s performances would carry the emotion and drama the dialogue completely failed to conveyThe stage directions were also minimalistic I mean we have a basic location set for us but that s about all There s no real expression or sense of urgency All in all it s just a little flat The plot is feasible even if it felt a little forced but the characters were just poor The new ones aren t so bad but the old characters Harry Ron and Hermione were barely themselves They just had no depth to them they re like reflections of their surface level Ron felt like a piece of furniture that seemed to enjoy inserting several badly times jokes Hermione seemed cold And Harry Harry simply isn t Harry How can he identify himself as a bad farther How can he believe that he had no farther figure in his
