Default Harry Potter & The Cursed Child Pt 1/2

Anyone else read this?

I've managed to make it through twice and love love love it. It isn't perfect by any means, but it is a fun piece of Potter canon.

The moments with Snape were very lovely. <3

I finished it this weekend! I wasn't sure what to expect because it got some really bad reviews on Amazon, but I love Harry Potter so there was no question that I'd read this one. I really liked it! And I agree, the moments with Snape were great!

I cried so much Elizabeth!! Mostly just because I was overjoyed for most of the read. Some really beautiful moments.

What I was shocked the most about was how humorous it was! Draco's son was a welcome new addition to the Potter world. He was a total delight.

I sure would love to either see the play or read this as a real novel. I kinda wanna read it again now!

I'm wondering/hoping they might make this into a movie at some point. Although casting would prove challenging. I'd love to read it again in novel form!

I loved the Ron and Hermoine moments too -- I know there were lots of people who thought it should be Harry and Hermoine together, but this book sealed the deal that Ron and Hermoine were meant for each other.

I can't believe McGongall was still there! I only wish Hagrid would've showed up.

I was shocked that Hargid was only mentioned plus an all too brief flashback. :-/ Would have liked to have seen him fighting along side Snape.
