      3 1 2 stars I completely get why many HP fans will be disappointed with this, but I have to admit I really enjoyed it I d love to see this story play out on stage.So yeah, I understand the sad feelings Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has a completely different vibe Aside from being a play, it s also a mature, character driven, less magical story It does not feel like an eighth Harry Potter book at all there s a real disconnect between this play and the other seven novels And you know what I m [...]

    2. Khanh (the meanie) says:
      It was alright It was just alright.I know I gave this 4 stars, but to be honest, J.K Rowling can write a dictionary with Harry Potter illustrations and I d probably give it 4 stars, so my rating is almost irrelevant here, given my extreme bias.The thing is, it was cute, it was sweet, it was entirely nostalgic to see the old crew again, but I hated the play format As a person who grew up with Harry Potter, and who is in her early 30s now, I feel like I grew up with Harry Potter and the crew, and [...]

    3. LolaReviewer says:
      You know, I really hadn t foreseen the publication of something to lengthen Harry Potter s story after the conclusion that was Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows So, the way I see it, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a lovely gift to every Harry Potter fan out there who has hoped and waited a long time to see their wizard friends again.Though the plot holes are very visible and spread throughout the story, they make for charming and heartfelt conversations between characters, so I didn t m [...]

    4. Riley says:
      Ok wow where do I even begin with this.My summarized thoughts are that this was a waste of my time I ve seen a lot of reviews where people say this read like fanfiction and they would be correct Because this IS fanfiction JK Rowling did not write this I will repeat, JK ROWLING DID NOT WRITE THIS.With that cleared up, this shouldn t exist The play was not meant to be read like this, it was meant to be seen If they wanted a book they should have made a novelized version but instead they took the e [...]

      I m not going to rate this I didn t hate it I didn t love it It s just a thing that exists and I m accepting it for what it is edit I didn t mean for this review to come off as shady as it did I m going to make a video discussing my feelings further I m happy that we got to visit this world again, but it just wasn t what I was expecting it to be If you LOVED this book, that s okay I m happy that you enjoyed it.

      Let s be honest this read like badly written fan fiction

    8. Cait • A Page with a View says:
      ALL MAJOR SPOILERS ARE HIDDEN.Ok, I actually went into this with zero spoilers and very few expectations so that I d enjoy whatever it turned out to be I mean, I like scripts Harry Potter is my life We re good So I really tried not to compare this to the HP books or look at it as an intense fan, but it s pretty underwhelming no matter how you approach itThe story picks up at the end of the Deathly Hallows epilogue where Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, and Malfoy are seeing their kids leave on the H [...]

    9. Bookdragon Sean says:
      Now this was a real shame It read like some juvenile fan fiction The characters were utterly lifeless Perhaps seeing this would be better The stage actor s performances would carry the emotion and drama the dialogue completely failed to convey.The stage directions were also minimalistic I mean we have a basic location set for us, but that s about all There s no real expression or sense of urgency All in all, it s just a little flat The plot is feasible, even if it felt a little forced, but the c [...]

      This review contains mild spoilers.I ve waited for this particular story for what feels like ages, and words cannot even describe for how grateful I am that it finally exists in my hands Harry Potter and the Cursed Child continues the wondrous magical world that we all know and love.The story starts out at King s Cross with the original trio preparing their school age children to board the train to start their first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.It s at this time that Harry [...]

      Reviewed by Rabid ReadsRULE FOR SPOILERS if it s in the first 10%, and therefore in most cases available for scrutiny from undecided readers in the FREE downloadable preview, IT S NOT A SPOILER.That being said, a LOT of things happen IMPORTANT things in the first five percent, let alone ten percent of HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD, so if you d rather go into your read without significant prior knowledge, leave this review immediately.That s the only warning you re going to get.In my experien [...]

      After years of wishing and waitingAT LAST My precious said in Gollum voice UPDATED after reading NO NO NO NO Terrible writing I can let slide it s a play so I would expect the acting to salvage that but the plot was pointless, the characters were, well, out of character, and it feltHorrible like bad fan fiction

      After Reading 1,5 starsNope, that s definitely not what I hoped this book d have been.Recensione in Italiano La prima parte della storia non nemmeno male, poi per tutto inizia ad essere confusonario e, diciamocelo, praticamente senza senso.Nel complesso comunque sarebbe una storia nella media, una storia da 3 stelline, diciamo.Poi uno si rende conto che di Harry Potter che stiamo parlando e allora mani nei capelli ma cos sta roba Questo libro non ha decisamente nulla a che fare con Harry Potter [...]

      SPOILER FREE VIDEO REVIEW youtu WUFTFkyDHlY2.5 I think So here s the deal I went into this being apprehensive My expectations were low and I was right I just felt like Harry Potter s story ended where it had to end The questions that were left unanswered kept the story alive as I would imagine what might be going on in their lives as adults This answers all those questions and then some I wanted to rate this higher but I think 2.5 is as high as I can go These characters didn t feel like the char [...]

      Spoiler free review This review can also be found on my blog, Dana and the Books.I never thought I d get to count down the days to another Harry Potter release.I was understandably hesitant about a sequel, but I m relieved after having read it It was everything I could have hoped for and not at all what I was expecting seriously, not at all but it was perfect It was the type of story I play within my head when I have too much time on my hands I was super lucky to be able to go into the story com [...]

      I need to accio this book immediately.Sidenote can time turners go forward into the future

    22. Raeleen Lemay says:
      I enjoyed this, but it also felt very unnecessary Barely anything was gained by the end of the story due to all the view spoiler TIME TRAVEL hide spoiler but whatever I would KILL to see the play because I cannot comprehend how all of that would work on a stage, and I m glad I read this, but it s definitely borderline fanfiction in my mind It was like watching A Very Potter Musical, but not quite as fun.

    23. Ben Alderson says:
      Wow What an experience this was I loved going back and visiting Hogwarts again.Very enjoyable read Thank you JK

    24. Brian Yahn says:
      J.K Rowling could punch me in the face, and I d still like it The truth is, this isn t one of her stories, and it shows For one, it s not even a book.Regardless, the magic is here, and I like it just the same The plot might be convoluted and crazy, but the world is magical enough for it to somehow work It makes for all the thrills and mystery you come to expect from the Harry Potter universe.Coming back to this series felt like returning to school after a long summer break Although it takes plac [...]

      As you can see on my pre review, I m beyond excited for this script book and relive the magic at Hogwarts It s automatically one of my most anticipated books of 2016 but due to the mixed reviews circulated, I decided to hold it off to clear my mind from expectations and wait for the hype to go down Until now I m still hesitant to read but screw it I m gonna dive in and let s see if I m going to enjoy it Here s what I thought when I finished this book My fear just got real This book is truly disa [...]

    28. Michelle says:
      I think the epilogue to the original Harry Potter series, found in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows , was a masterful finale to the saga It gave readers a hint of the adult lives of Harry, Ginny, Ron and Hermione, as well as a glimpse of their children It suggested the adventures that had occurred in the intervening 19 years without spelling them out It was a marvelous ending, with just enough tantalizing information given and just enough details withheld to leave me closing the book with sa [...]
