"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."

      THE BOOK IS THE BEST!!!!!!! I took the house quiz and I'm a Gryffindor and my Patronus is a Pheonix. The book has so many twists, especially when (sorry spoiler ALERT!) Delphi acting as Amos Diggory's daughter when SHE'S NOT!!! She's VOLDEMORTS DAUGHTER IN THE FUTURE!!! which doesn't even make sense because who did Voldemort marry? From what I think is that Voldemort (he who shall not be named) married Beatrix Lestrange which is kinda crazy. Sorry that the message is so long but it's just so amazing. I really recommend this book if you like twists.

      I recommend this book if you like magic, fantasy, twists, and more. I liked it because it had a lot of twists. It was on a different level from the original movies and books. Hopefully, they make a movie out of it and it is similar to the book.

            This book wasn't for me. I saw Albus as a selfish and ungrateful son who just seems to hate his father for being who he is: a famous wizard. Albus doesn't seem to think before doing anything he does, like going back in time and trying to change events. He might have good intent, but his actions just seemed ridiculous to me at points. Might have liked it more if it was J.K. Rowling's writing only.

                  WARNING: SPOILERS 💕✨💘I love this book because in the first book, you can tell that harry is surprised when he learns he's a wizard. J.K Rowling has a gift for writing about that, than when he is taken to Hogwarts, he meets Mcgonagal. The transformation teacher, than he go's to the dining hall, where he is sorted into his house. He hopes he's not in Slytherin, but he can go into Slytherin, or Gryffindor. Than he in...Gryffindor What house are you (you can take a test)? I'm a Hufflepuff!

                    I like this book but....it doesn't make sense.. well, if you want to be a Ministry of Magic employee, you need to get top grades at N.E.W.T( an exam you do on the 7th grade at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry) and O.W.L(Ordinary Wizarding Level=> also an exam but you do it on the 5th Grade at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry) but Harry is a Ministry employee (even a head of the Department of Magical Laws Enforcement and Improper use of Magic) it doesn't make sense!! Harry didn't do N.E.W.T and he didn't get top grades on his O.W.L. But still, I like the book but this storie would have been more fun and interesting if it was written by the auther herself, by J.K Rowling. This is why I like the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Oh! and interesting fact about Bellatrix Lestrange and Voldemort. This book is surely a good book for Harry Potter fans who really wants to read more about Harry Potter series. But it is sometimes a disappointment that it wasn't written by J.K Rowling.
