Being a huge fan of Harry Potter, I couldn’t miss the new book named Harry Potter and the cursed child. And so I’ve decided to write an article about it.
First, let me tell you that this sequel, if we can say so, is the script of the play which has the same title. We can find the same characters, the same universe… But 19 years after the last book. Indeed, Harry is 37 years old now, and has two sons : James Sirius Potter and Albus Severus Potter, and one daughter : Lily Luna Potter. Moreover, Harry is working for the magical law enforcement. About Hermione, she is now the minister of magic. Also, she is married to Ron (who is holding « Weasley’s wizard wheezes ») and has two children : Rose and Hugo Granger-Weasley. To conclude about the characters, Draco is also present, with his son Scorpius Malfoy but without his wife since we learn that she is dead.
Now I will talk a little about the story. The story begins at the King’s cross station and the Hogwarts Express’ arrival. Harry’s son, Albus, and Hermione’s daughter, Rose, are in the train (it reminds us when Harry and Ron took it in the first book). But unlike the original story, Albus is becoming friend with Scorpius. Anyway, both are chose to integrate Slytherin, whereas Rose is going to Gryffindor. Then, and for their time in Hogwarts, we will see the three kids facing many difficulties, and especially for the two boys since Rose will become popular. I won’t tell you more about it, otherwise it will ruin everything because you really should read this book.
Even if the writing is completly different from J.K’s, the magical universe that has rocked my childhood is still here. Nonetheless, some details bothered me (few dead characters are back, and there are contradictions about the time-turner for instance). Nevermind, I was so pleased that a new book was published!!
If your a fan, or if you like Harry Potter’s world, I advice you to read it.
