It’s been a slow week for my blog. I apologize. But there was the little teeny-tiny book that was release on Sunday called Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two (Special Rehearsal Edition Script): The Official Script Book of the Original West End Production(associate link). You may have heard of it. Well, possibly not that full titled, but the shorter one: Harry Potter 8. Well, after a crazy start to my week, I cracked open the golden tome of goodness, and just couldn’t stop reading. I finished the book very quickly, as it’s a play, it’s much quicker than any of J.K Rowling’s previous novels (with the exception of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Tales of Beedle the Bard, and Quiddich Through The Ages). Anyway, it’s quick. Like lightning. Which meant that after spending a few short hours with Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, I went into heavy withdrawal.
It’s been a long time since I first got over Harry Potter. And now here I am, feeling like I have to get over him all over again. Only it isn’t so much Harry this time, as Albus, and wasn’t Ron great, too? He’s always great. If you’ve read it, I’m sure you can commiserate with my misery. It was great, but too brief. I want more. I need more. When can I get more?
And these questions don’t seem to go away.
For Rowling, and HP, as always, 5/5 stars.
