Once Upon A Book – Charlee Rae's Book Reviews

"Books Fall Open, You Fall In"

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (Harry Potter #8) by J.K. Rowling


I rated this book 4 out of 5 stars.

The story of Harry Potter continues nineteen years later with his son Albus. Being Harry Potter is difficult enough, but being the son of the legendary wizard proves to be harder. Through this story, both Harry and his son learn that no one is perfect and that darkness never completely goes away. It can live in each of us.

This is the latest installment and sadly sounds like the last. I ordered it without hesitation and immediately started in on it, never setting it down. Finishing it within just a few hours, I was disappointed when it ended. Not because of the way it ended, but because the story was over. Harry Potter was the series that got my daughter into reading. It’s a series that I have read myself more than once….something I never do with a book no matter how good it is. I know there were a lot of people that were unhappy with this book, but I wasn’t one of them. Too many people I think were expecting another Harry Potter novel. It’s not. You need to go in with an open mind and keep your expectations to a minimum. Was it perfect? No. Did it sometimes leave more questions than answers? Yes. But I enjoyed it anyway.

Even though this installment is in script form, it was just as enchanting as the others and managed to carry me away to another world. I’m not going to go into details about the story itself because I don’t want to give anything away, but I was not the least bit disappointed. I can honestly say that if this is the end, I’m going to miss Harry and his friends and family. It’s been a fun ride and one I wouldn’t have missed for the world. Thank you J.K. Rowling, for giving us one final go around. It was worth the wait.
