"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."

    I have loved this book so far! I was a really sad to hear that it was the last book of the Harry Potter Series:( It's so far been a good book about Harry Potter and his son Albus's relationship. I highly recommend it to people that like action books! I do think that it has been a little sad. Albus Jumped of the train to find a time traveler and had left his dad in a lot of trouble. I think that some people will see that the book gets better. If you want to they have a play for the book as well, so you could go in and watch it. I hope you enjoy the book! Go Harry Potter!!

      I LOVE Harry Potter but, this seems like a bored 7th grader wrote it in the back of their notebook when they were bored and had too much sugar and the published it. I could have written this.

            I have read all of the Harry Potter books. I was glad when I heard there was another book. I can't wait until the movie comes out in America on May 22, 2021. When I was done with the books. I felt like the Harry Potter characters were my friends. I read the books a lot.

                This is a great book! It takes place 19 years after the battle of Hogwarts. It is about Harry’s son, Albus, and Draco’s son, Scorpius. They are best friends. They meet a girl , who is a “Diggory”. They go back in time to save her “cousin”. She ends up not being a Diggory. She is just trying to to get her dad back. I won’t spoil who is her dad, but it is a great book. It is set up as a play, and that bothered my friend, but it didn’t bother me. It’s a awesome book. 5 stars for sure.

                  "All was well". This was the end of book 7. But there was a new problem lurking. Albus Potter, Harry's son, got picked in Slytherin. He has a dark cloud above him. Harry thinks that Albus is cursed because of his friend, Scorpius Malfoy. Read what happens as this book is awesome!

                      I am still shocked that Albus Potter was sorted into Slytherin! But it was still a good book.
