Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a fictional story written by J.K Rowling in her Harry Potter series. The story takes place 19 years after the big Hogwarts battle in Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows, the concluding Book 7 of the main Harry Potter series. It’s hard to assign the best age for this play for a few reasons, such as character interaction, plot mechanics, and overall complexity of the book: The most logical age for this book is 13 and up. The story has interesting mechanics that I believe were not very polished or utilized to the best of their ability. Not only does Cursed Child spoil the pristine finish Rowling gave her seven books, but it also does it poorly. There’s manipulated travel by Time-Turners similar to that in Prisoner of Azkaban, but it’s carried way too far, resulting in a drawn-out experience which results in frustration and leads the reader to want the book to end. There’s comic relief, but it’s an awkward, uncomfortable, containing random, unrealistic actions and words said by certain characters, including Harry Potter. The rather bizarre tension between characters such as Scorpius and Albus is painfully forced. Random scenes in which the boys appear to be growing closer are dropped in and left undeveloped. In my opinion, this book could have been so much more than what it is now. I believe that the story, concepts, and characters could have been more dynamic and realistic in certain situations during the story. I do not recommend this book in particular, and I believe Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets would be a better choice. Out of the whole Harry Potter series, I personally would not highly recommend this book to anyone except for those who would like to simply complete reading the Harry Potter series. I would have a much more enjoyable experience reading the other Harry Potter books. I chose to read this book because I thought it would add to the overall story of the series and implement new concepts, but, sadly, the book did not do that very well, leaving myself and most readers in disappointment.
