In this action packed continuation of the beloved Harry Potter series, Harry is now in his forties and has three children. Filled with intense wizard battles, countless near-death experiences, dramatic arguments, shocking betrayals and terrifying alternate universes, this book is sure to grasp your attention and throw your emotions in every direction. The book picks up in exactly the same place the epilogue left off in the last book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. We follow Harry’s youngest son, Albus, and his best friend, Scorpius, on their wild adventures through time.
The book is actually the script for the play currently showing in London, England, and if this is your first time reading a script then it might take a while to get the hang of it. Those looking for a sequel that kept to the theme of the original books may be disappointed, but if you are able to keep an open mindset about it, then hopefully you will appreciate the new twist on the Harry Potter books.
There were some pretty obvious plot holes, but they weren’t very difficult to overlook. The book was lacking somewhat in description, but this can be attributed to the fact that it’s meant for a stage. I highly recommend reading Harry Potter and the Cursed Child if you haven’t already, to return to the magical world of Harry Potter and take part in the adventure of a lifetime.
