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.
