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 have been putting off trying to rate this book/play because I have just so many mixed emotions. I am just not sure how to rate it. I first cracked it open the night of the release party at midnight. (Yes, I went to the midnight release party and no, it was not my first HP midnight release party.) ...
This book hit me in the feels a little bit (okay, kind of a lot). It played on my nostalgia and my thirst to know more of the HP universe and what happened to our Golden Trio when they were all grown up. I don't even feel like I can really write an honest review of this because by default I'm gonn...
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child opens at the exact moment where the seventh book concludes: nineteen years in the future (after the Battle of Hogwarts), with Harry and wife Ginny, sending off their two eldest children to Hogwarts. Even though the book starts at this point, it quickly spins forward...
