"The Eighth Story. Nineteen Years Later.

Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, a new play by Jack Thorne, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The play will receive its world premiere in London’s West End on July 30, 2016.

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places."

I think this is a good book, but I would have preferred it if it wasn't written in the play form. If it was just JK Rowling's work and it was written like the other books I think it might have been a little more fun to real. Then again, the whole thing about the next generation of witches and wizards is pretty cool. If there was a sequel I would read it!

This book is about the next generation of witches and wizards. Hermione and Ron are married and Harry and Ginny are married and have kids. Hermione and Ron have Rose Granger-Weasley and Hugo Granger-Weasley while Harry and Ginny have James Potter, Albus Potter and Lily Potter. On Albus's first day of school at Hogwarts, James taunts him about the fact that he might be in Slytherin. Albus tells his dad (Harry) and Harry tells him that there's nothing wrong with being in Slytherin (which there isn't) and that it's okay. Aboard the Hogwarts Express, Albus befriends Scorpius Malfoy (Draco Malfoy's son) while Rose stays well away. SPOILER ALERT!!: The Sorting Hat declares that Albus is a Slytherin! He has to dodge rude comments and nastypeople who tease him just because he's in that house instead of Gryffindor. In their fourth year, Albus meets a young woman who, apparantly, is called Delpini Diggory or Delphi for short. SPOILER ALERT!!: Delphi is actually Lord Voldemort's daughter and plans to use Hermione's time-turner to get him back!! (But that's just cos she wants to see her dad one last time though.)The boys decide to help Delphi because she says that she is just trying to revive Cedric and says that he is her cousin. Will the boys stop Delphi before the world is ruled by the Dark Lord again?! Or will all be lost?! Find out in this book full of magic and mischief! Side-note: In 1998, Bellatrix Lestrange used a Amortencia (a love potion) on Voldemort and they had Delphi while he was in love with her. That's how blue and silver-haired Delphi was born. P.S. Sorry, I know I'm a massive Potterhead!!!

Awesome book others who don't like it should like it like you @skyward_ flight!

I read this. It wasn't great, but if you like Harry Potter, go ahead!

I really like this book because it has action and the emotion have not gone far in the book but what i have read is very exciting

A mazing book I read it many times my fav character is Lily Potter . You must read it It is one of the best books I've read

THE BOOK IS THE BEST!!!!!!! I took the house quiz and I'm a Gryffindor and my Patronus is a Pheonix. The book has so many twists, especially when (sorry spoiler ALERT!) Delphi acting as Amos Diggory's daughter when SHE'S NOT!!! She's VOLDEMORTS DAUGHTER IN THE FUTURE!!! which doesn't even make sense because who did Voldemort marry? From what I think is that Voldemort (he who shall not be named) married Beatrix Lestrange which is kinda crazy. Sorry that the message is so long but it's just so amazing. I really recommend this book if you like twists.

I recommend this book if you like magic, fantasy, twists, and more. I liked it because it had a lot of twists. It was on a different level from the original movies and books. Hopefully, they make a movie out of it and it is similar to the book.

I recommend this book if you like twists, magic, fantasy, and more. In my opinion, I really liked the book and everybody should read it because it's amazing.

This book wasn't for me. I saw Albus as a selfish and ungrateful son who just seems to hate his father for being who he is: a famous wizard. Albus doesn't seem to think before doing anything he does, like going back in time and trying to change events. He might have good intent, but his actions just seemed ridiculous to me at points. Might have liked it more if it was J.K. Rowling's writing only.
