Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a two-part West End stage play written by Jack Thorne based on an original new story by Thorne, J.K. Rowling and John Tiffany. Previews of the play began at the Palace Theatre, London on 7 June 2016, and it was scheduled to officially premiere on 30 July 2016. The rehearsal script, not a novelisation of the play, was released on 31 July 2016 and became the eighth story set in the Harry Potter universe. The story is set nineteen years after the events of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and follows Harry Potter, now a Ministry of Magic employee, and his younger son Albus Severus Potter.


I absolutely loved this book. Even though you can’t really call it a book. I thought at first it’s kinda written like a fanfiction because like this person says “…” this other person says something “…”, you get me? It totally didn’t bother me while reading and I loved that too. The book was not only so well written but Joanne really did a good job on the characters! I hope we can all agree that Scorpius is the biggest fluff ball you’ve ever read about and we all want one ourselves. I did have conflicted feelings of him being in love with Rose while she gave him 0 attention. My otp of this book is obviously Scorbus (Albus and Scorpius) because they belong to each other and yeah well. I don’t know if you had seen the plot twist coming of Delphi being the Cursed Child. When I hadn’t read the book yet I thought the title ‘Cursed Child’ would be about Albus. When I started reading I thought that title might belong to Scorpius but oh no it wasn’t his title either. Anyway, if you (STILL?) haven’t read this yet you really should because you’re extremely missing out on something big!

I’m so so so sad I possibly can’t go to the play in London but if you’ve seen it or are going to, please tell me everything about it. Anyway this was my review on The Cursed Child! Comment your thoughts below like always. I love you guys! (I made a post again because Tom’s currently having a very busy week and he didn’t have any time, soooo you get me again instead hahaha, I hope you don’t mind)

  1. I agree that the book was good and I loved the storyline ! Scorpius is literally my child I love him !!! But Harry’s character had completely changed for me which meant I kinda had to go back to the series to re get his awkward cinnamon roll self. I’m seeing the play next November (had to book so far in advance) I’m so excited – Sanj (@n.ewts.c.reatures_)

  2. I don’t know, I was fine with the script format, but I would’ve thought Scorpius and Albus would be Gryffindor or Hufflepuff. I just can’t see the drive or ambition either one has. Also Harry’s characterization was- out of character. HARRY POTTER WOULD NEVER EVER TELL HIS SON HE WISHED HE HAD NEVER BEEN BORN, ESPECIALLY NOT BECAUSE HE IS A SLYTHERIN! Also Voldemort had a kid with Bellatrix? It seems JK is a talentless fanfic writer (btw not all fanfic writers are bad) except everything is cannon. A real nightmare. Also I’m dissatisfied with the Snape/Dumbledore redemption arc. You know what they needed? A DRACO redemption arc. Or at least a well written Dumbledore or Snape, not excuses like “But he loved Lily,” or “It was for the greater good.”
