"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 Cursed Child more like the Cursed book!They brung Bach time turners and plus did Voldemort have a daughter why seriously* Jack Thorn and John Tiffiny basically stole J.K Rowling characters and molded them into a mans work

                Even though I LOVE the Harry Potter series, I didn't like this book very much. It was kinda confusing to me, and I didn't like that Harry and Albus had a shaky father-son relationship. But the suprise and suspense of Delphi actually being Voldemort's daughter, is amazing. I don't think i'll read it again.

                    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!! 🌟
