Based on an original new story by J. K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a new play by Jack Thorne, is the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. It will receive its world premiere in London's West End on 30th July 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. About the Author J. K.

I will keep this brief. There was little I liked about this book. The little there was were the three young characters Albus, Scorpius, and Rose. I loved that they were not cast as repeats of their parents and that their background did not determine their character or actions, which, I guess, it ...
I knew the general consensus about this book was that it was a disappointment, which put me off reading it for awhile. So I was a little surprised as I began it, because I was really enjoying it and didn't understand why there was a fuss. Then Act 1, Scene 10 happened. Now I get it, because from...
Placing J.K. Rowling's name big and center is very misleading considering how the story wasn't her idea.
