Harry Potter and the cursed child

Hi there !

So, as my reading was in English, I guess I am going to talk about Harry Potter and the cursed child in the same language. I’ll maybe translate it later, like in a day or two. So here we go !


Harry Potter And The Cursed Child
J.K. Rowling / John Tiffany / Jack Thorne
Little Brown editions

Find the book on amazon.co.uk

I guess you all know about what the story is don’t you ? It is still Harry Potter life, nineteen years later. So he has a son Albus Severus, named after Dumbledore and Snape as you’ve probably noticed. So we are going to follow him, on his adventures. I’m not going to tell you with who he became friend and all that because I don’t want to spoil you anything. I’m staying vague on purpose, it’s your job to read the book and find everything that happens in the story. I’m only telling you, there’s time-turners.

I do not want to be rude or anything, but I am disappointed about that piece ! Really ! At first I was really enthusiast, I was in, I liked to read it first because it’s HarryPotter and then because the english is quite easy to understand. But, nothing really happens, just one thing. Yes, this story is made from one huge mistake Albus Severus Potter made. And, as much as I love Harry Potter, I was bored reading it, it’s the same all along. Too much use of time-turners to make this story. For some parts, we live again, but in a dream, what happened in the past (about Harry Potter), I am not against making any references to the initials books, but that much ? Was it really necessary ? I’m not that sure.

So I’ll just say, it was a real pleasure to fall back into Harry Potter’s world, really, and i’m re-watching the movies these days, but for me, the piece is good, but it would have been better to end Harry Potter’s story with a real book, if J.K. Rowling would have wrote the real end, with more details, more actions and less turning back in old times. I know you can’t write as much for theatre as you do for a book, because it’s played, but i’m disappointed.

Still, read it if you’ve liked Harry Potter. But don’t wait for an awesome story like it was in books.

What about you, did you liked it ? Not ? Why ? I’d love to exchange with you about this book.

  1. Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and
    i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam comments? If so
    how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any help is very much
    appreciated. http://bing.net

  2. I agree that there’s not much new in terms of overt plot. However, the book is really about prejudice and about the relationship between fathers and their sons. The character of Scorpius is a good analogy to the way Muslims are treated by western society (particularly in America) – pay attention to the way he is shunned, and all the assumptions and rumors about who he is.

    There is a lot to be learned about parenting here. Harry is a hero, but he’s a terrible father, and he actually learns a lot from Draco about how to be a better father to a son whom he doesn’t understand. And that helps bring better understanding between Harry and Draco through the course of the book.

    So, if you look below the surface, there is a lot of good here. The events of the story are only a frame upon which to hang the relationships and character development.

      I don’t want to see Harry Potter this way. For me Harry Potter is a part of my childhood and I still want to read it as a child. I don’t want to see any of these things, I mean about muslims, (even if you’re right, or not) but i agree about parenting. I just want to see the magical part of Harry Potter, the love, friendship etc. But please, let the muslims out of this book, please. Everyone put them everywhere they can these days. It’s really boring.
