★★★★★/5 | Goodreads
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.
This script is basically everything I wanted it to be. It gave me so many feelings. I was nervous because there were so many mixed reviews and I even saw hardcore HP fans not like this play. But I was really excited to get my hands on this book nonetheless.
One scene in and I was already tearing up. Welp.
Just a warning, if you haven’t read The Cursed Child yet and plan to, there might be spoilers in this review. I try to avoid putting anything that could reveal a plotline but I might’ve slipped one without realizing.
