Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by JK Rowling
From a nineteen year old captivated by Stephen Fry's complete reading of Philosopher's Stone on New Year's Day of , to a Potter obsessed undergraduate making a wand out of a twig and shoe polish for a Harry Potter party, to a slightly more jaded post grad getting together with an old friend to finish the series with a spectacular 24 hour reading and a slight sense of melancholy in , I can't deny Harry Potter has had a huge effect on my life as an adult. To add a new chapter to that story, reading through the script of Cursed Child with my new and absolutely wonderful wife seems extremely apt, as does writing this review. Cursed Child begins with that famous scene from the epilogue of Deathly Hallows with Harry, Ron, Hermione and indeed Draco Malfoy seeing their children onto the Hogwarts express. The story follows an unlikely friendship between Harry's middle son Albus Severus, and Draco Malfoy's son Scorpius, meeting on the train to Hogwarts in a scene that consciously mirror's Harry's first meeting with Ron and Hermione. One major thing which this story gets spot on and which I recognized instantly is the instant complexity and realism of its characters. Albus is the slightly overlooked middle child of a famous father, while Scorpius has to live with not only a father who is an ex-deatheater, but the suspicion of being thought the son of Lord Voldemort. The comradeship between two outcasts, and two boys who plainly find Hogwarts anything but the magical haven we're used to is one of the most lovely parts of the story, indeed I was a little sorry that the story quickly skips from Albus' first to his fourth year, and we see very few of his fellow students particularly since it might have given us a chance to see some other aspects of Hogwarts not noticeable in the books.
