"The Eighth Story. Nineteen Years Later.

Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, a new play by Jack Thorne, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The play will receive its world premiere in London’s West End on July 30, 2016.

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places."

    This series is so good, sometimes I feel like Hogwarts is real, and that magic is real, and there is a person called Harry Potter who's a wizard and had to battle Lord Voldemort! I need to read this book, and just a question: Is J.K Rowling planning to make another book in this awesome series? Albus Severus Potter, and Harry James Potter both learn a lesson that will stick to them forever! One million stars out of 5 stars!! 🌟

        My favorite part about this book is when the children drink the polyjuice potion and one of them act like they are Ron. I read this a long time ago, so I don't really remember anything. That was just the first thing that popped up in my mind.

          In this play, you see Harry Potter’s children and a time traveling plot to bring back an evil master once and for all. With altered futures and magic duels, this surprisingly good end to the Potter saga is worth the read.

            I didn’t like the fact that the entire book was written in play script, which made it less enjoyable, however the overall plot was creative. This book was Not the best, but still good.

              This book is about Harry Potter's son and Malfoy's son. Two wizards son's are become a friends, but it had a many many probloms. It's most biggest problem is the Time rap, and it got Voldemort(?), and he came a wizards world ALIVE....and Voldemort(?) become most powerful and popular wizard in the world......but Harry Potter and Malfoy catch'd it.

                    If I could turn it into a play, I would. This is such a great story and it needs to be told.

                      This book is so good. Most of my friends have read it and we love. 5 star rating. Well, it is really good and if you love Harry Potter and need more this it your more. Also: It is a script not a story. But still it is really amazing.
