Today was one of those very fantastic days, where real life is paused and a new, magical world awaits. We spent the majority of our day in a theater, watching Part I and Part II of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and it was exceptional. The stage design, production, and illusions were breathtaking. The cast disappeared, transformed, and flew, and the time-travel effects were a treat.

It‘s a really quick read that made me miss the length and detail of the original series. Entertaining but not a required read.

TrishB The actual play is much better! 1mo

Super excited I made it through play #1. Super fun to see on stage with all the magic and clever theatrics. Also a great story about friendship and family and most of all acceptance. 🧙🏻‍♀️Lol and lots of people in costume representing their Hogwart‘s houses.

It‘s Harry Potter, so of course I‘m going to give it 5 stars. I have it tattooed on me so I have to stand behind that. Despite making me want to throw the book across the room at times, I actually really enjoyed it.

i‘ve heard terrible things about this one but that‘s never stopped me before lol maybe i‘ll treat it as a fan fic ? 🤔 is this cannon? did anybody out there read or go see the play, if so, what did u think?

xicanti I read it and enjoyed it very much—but I‘ve never read any Harry Potter fanfic and I understand a lot of people‘s objections sprang from the play‘s similarities to some popular fic plots. If you‘re a big fanfic reader, you might see those issues more than I did. 2mo
IvoryLunatic I think a lot of people went into it with the wrong expectations. It‘s a play so there‘s no way to have the same details and writing style as the rest of the series. 2mo

"The Cursed Child" was okay. The plot was a little all over the place, but I liked the characters developed in Albus Potter and Scorpious Malfoy. I'd like to see this on the actual stage! Now that'd be cool!?

Wrapping up the (now defunct?) #HPBuddyRead through audio!! I read this one last December, so it‘s pretty fresh to reread. Figured that listening to it would at least make it feel newer 🎧

I didn‘t feel like this was official HP canon, but more like fan fiction. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Let‘s see if a second go changes my mind!

My husband Alex, who I have been with since the age of 14 (& we are now 27 and married!) organised tickets for us to see Harry Potter & the Cursed Child. Since Harry Potter was published, I fell in love. The writing, the characters, the events, the love story...the magic. Alex organised tickets to watch the theatre production and it was a masterpiece. I‘m so thankful for the authors & my amazing husband Alex for loving it just as much as I do 🥰💕

Megabooks How lovely! Enjoy! 💜 4mo

I‘m late to reading this one, but I can say I‘m genuinely surprised of how much I loved it. I heard a lot of bad reviews, but honestly it was incredible reading about Harry as a father and the flaws and struggles that came with it (still not regretting a Harry Potter tattoo 😂) 8/2019 #harrypotter #theater

In the Modern Fantasy novel you spend way more time in Harry‘s world. The book is seen more so in a script format and basically states that even things that are being done for the right reasons can still go horribly wrong. The book is a very good Literature circle group, kids can discuss in a small group format the book and how they felt about it. The UDL strategy is 3.2 and the ESOL strategy is 10. Teach think, pair and share strategies in

DrSpalding This description just not tell me that you thoroughly read the book, which I am sure you did. Wrong #.Scholastic is a High-quality website. 7mo

Since the play is on at the Princess Theatre right now they have a pop up Harry Potter bar in the city and it was so much fun 😍 more pics to come ! #harrypotter #melbourne #popup ⚡️⚡️

I‘m giving it a so-so because it‘s not really necessary to the Harry Potter world. I thought it was quite shallow compared to the other books, but that could be because it is a play. It just felt like a fan fiction instead of an actual Harry Potter.I did feel it is a guilty pleasure book where a part of me does like the book and did think the story was alright. I wish a novel version would be released instead of just the play.

I love this quote because it literally foreshadows two books- 4 and 8

What gets me is how Delphi can keep showing up at Hogwarts, and she can get in and no one notices her. I‘m sorry but it makes me question the security of Hogwarts. It‘s not even like she‘s a former student. She never went there but can still get on school property.

Does anybody else read ahead or check the internet to see if their suspicions are correct then move on in the book to see how it all plays out? I‘ve been doing that a lot with book 8 mainly because I feel as if this story so far had been a lot more shallow than books 1-7.

Karkar I did not on this particular book. But I have in the past. 9mo
