New Harry Potter Book #8!!!

one year ago

What do you think about the new Harry Potter book coming out? Harry Potter and the Cursed Child!

I think it will be pretty good, the only thing that sucks is that it will be 19 years later so it feels like it's not really attached to the other ones because it's so far apart from them.

This link is kind of mainly about the play but there is a book also.

It's not actually by the same author, either.  

And so far, they're making it sound like it's just the script of the play, not a novelization.

Well I also found this link that talks about the book and everything and I think it is by the same author:

It's a play by Jack Thorne based on a story by Jack Thorne, John Tiffany, and JK Rowling.

So she helped come up with the story (maybe- she may just get credit since she created the characters)

But she didn't write it, Jack Thorne did.

And again, that link clearly states it's a script book.  I'm sure they'll novelize it eventually, because people will buy it, but all there is right now is the printed script of the play.

My thoughts are:

Grffindor?

Albus doesn't care.

You'll cry though.

I have read the book, it's alright but sadly it is in the play form which I dislike. I would still recommend the Cursed Child.
