Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – Parts One and Two (Harry Potter #8)  by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany, Jack Thorne

I have to say, even though I did not stay up all night reading this, I definitely made up for it in the awkward locations that I ended up reading this book at. This was an instant must read that I put all my other books down to read (as I am currently reading three other books). This was a fast, amazing read that I am sorry is over. Every few pages I would just have to stop and look up for a minute trying to find someone to share this with. The only way I can describe it is every made up story or pondered aspect of the previous books, come to life in an unexpected form. The aspect of it being a script, did not take away from the story and the reading experience, as it allowed you, the reader, to make it your own in a different way then just reading a novel does. That being said, with it being a play, it made it so things happened in a very rushed fashion as well as there were some emotional aspects that did not transfer over well to the page from the actors. That being said, this book was a phenomenal read that I would recommend to everyone. It is a great coming of age story, as well as a great (well needed) epilogue for the Harry Potter fandom. It did a great job of making a new story but keeping to the old set of characters as well. This is definitely a great book to read as well as something that I am going to re-read. I have lots of theories and thoughts to discuss on this and love the depth of every little action in this book.  This is a truly great and satisfying ending to a wonderful series. Even though this might be the last book about Harry Potter, this is not the end of the Wizarding World. As we have many more adventures to partake in, inspired by Harry Potter himself.
