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 BOOK I SO AWESOME. The only thing that I would have like to have done is write another book of the Cursed Child not in play right form but you get used to it. EVENTUALLY!

          I love Harry Potter. And I might recommend this book. But, it is not J.K. Rowling. It is just not her! Also, the book is written in play format, which makes it not as enjoyable to read. If you have read Harry Potter, and you love it like me you might not want to read this book. Sure, it it's pretty good, but it is nothing like the amazing adventures Harry experienced throughout the series. I kind of wish J.K. Rowling had not written it, because it was annoying when i wanted Harry Potter, and I got a book written in play form that wasn't the best. I'm sorry that this is a negative review, but I am not going to lie.

                  I have heard that this book is really good. I keep going to the library to see if this book is there, but I never get any luck. I highly would recommend this book.
