Hello readers! A new thing is arriving to the blog, and that is definitely Book Reviews! The reason why I chose Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was because a friend of mine, lent it to me to read! I sincerely thank her immensely, for this book…oh my, it is so good. Without further ado, I will go onto reviewing it!
First Impression of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
My first impression of the script was that the main character, Albus, was a lonely, bullied child that James would stand up for, but oh my, how I was so wrong! (On a level I was right, haha). But, as I read the book, there was a lot more in stock for me than I had thought.
My thoughts on The Cursed Child (Spoiler Free!)
Albus and Scorpius are the most adorable best friends I’ve ever seen. As I read this book, I felt like I was with them the entire way through their adventure, through even the most dastardly and grim situations. This book took my emotions, and snapped one, little by little. Especially at the near end of the book, where the climax of the book is. I was so afraid of what would happen to little Albus or Scorpius. And I got a fair few laughs from this book as well. Apart from the movies, Draco and Harry in this book learn to be more friendly to each other, and as the story progresses, Harry and Draco have their arguments, but eventually they both realise that they must put their grudges aside in order for them to find Albus and Scorpius as they start poking into things they weren’t supposed to.
Also, I felt so betrayed by a certain character in this book, I thought good things about them, but…..mhm..I cannot reveal, as this is a spoiler free review, and more of the basis of how I felt about this book. I’m not a very good summary maker, and I don’t intend to in the future ahead….
My Rating for The Cursed Child
I give it 5/5 stars, it is wonderfully written, and it took me by surprise, and I could not put this book down for too long as the eagerness in me wanted me to read more. I did find it a bit shorter than the usual series, but seeing as this is a seperate story from the main Harry Potter series, I decided that it wouldn’t effect too much on the rating and the review I give for this book.
I would like to give a shout out to a very good book reviewer, @thebookfeedblog! She posts more regularly, and she reviews upcoming books from many indie authors, as well as already published books. She has a variety of things she posts, so go check her out!
I will be doing more book reviews in the future. They’ll be random, at best, as I’ll read a random book from my shelf and review it, if I feel the need to. May you all have luck, my readers.
