Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
Finished reading on July 31st, 2016
Today I woke up with the knowing that I have to go to the bookstore as soon as possible to get this book. I went there, and got back in less than twenty minutes, took this picture with my cup of very creamy coffee and got on the way to get to know my childhood heroes’ kids.
It’s been a very long time since I reread any of the books, so picking up this play, I didn’t really have much of a connection to the characters although I’d been quite obsessed with them as a teen. And ofcourse the new generation is something totally different.
In order to keep this post spoiler free I’m not going to go into much detail about anything except just random thoughts.
The plot was interesting and the twists were as unexpected as they have been before in Harry Potter series.
I liked the choice of characters that the play is mainly following. I wish I could see the play on stage though, because a play gives you more of just plain bones of the characters.
There are some interesting themes in the play, but mostly it’s about family relationships and friendship, a bit of teen angst and famous fathers.
