Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
While the format may be different for fans of Harry Potter, this new installment to the series is a wonderful addition to the Harry Potter collection. Written as a screenplay, some of the wonderful J.K. Rowling mastery of words and descriptions is missing, but the story has the true feel of the original series. The story revolves around the friendship of Harry & Ginny's son Albus with Scorpius Malfoy, the son of Draco. Harry struggles with his relationship with Albus, and Albus is dealing with some struggles of his own. In an attempt to right a past wrong, Albus talks Scorpius into joining him on an adventure that leads them both to much more than they bargained for. The story brings back Ron, Hermione, Draco and of course Harry, plus a few more of the beloved characters that readers will enjoy. I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It is NOT the same as reading the original novels, but for any Harry Potter fan this is a wonderful escape back to the magical world that we all love so much.
