Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, John Tiffany

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Parts I and II (English)(Hardcover) - John Tiffany & J K Rowling Jack Thorne

During the first quarter of the book, I must say I felt dissapointed and didn't really like the book. I hated Albus, I didn't understand where this Delphie woman came from, and I could not understand why Albus wanted to do what he did. It all felt weird and I could not understand how Harry and Ginny could have raised an idiot such as Albus. Also, since the book is really a screenplay, we don't get to know too much about what goes on in the characters' minds, or what their motivations are. It's a very different format to what we're used to and that makes it all weirder.


But then something happened, I don't know exactly what, but suddenly, I felt all the magic I usually feel when reading something from the Wizarding World. Maybe it was the fact that I started loving Scorpius as fiercely as I love the original main characters, or the fact that I decided to allow the characters to act how "they" wanted to act and not trying to demand certain actions according to what their adolescent counterparts would do. Because it's easy to forget that we're not talking about the same characters we saw in the seventh book, these are changed people, with adult lives, children, jobs, and years of experiences we don't know about.


I found very entertaining how the authors (because this is obviously not mainly Rowling) revisit so many turning points we find in the cannon, played with so many 'what ifs' and, most of all, I loved to get the chance to once again read about so many loved characters that have died throughout the series.


I can't help it, reading anything Harry Potter makes me utterly happy, and even though there were many things I didn't like (I am looking at you, ALBUS POTTER), this was a lovely experience. I didn't want to finish the book and I am going to read it again soon, because there's no denying it, this is the world where I love to be and I will keep coming back to it. Always.
