This new story is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series. Originally, it started off as Harry Potter’s first official play that was premiered in London’s West End on the 30th July, 2016.
We follow up on the grown up lives of Harry Potter and his famous friends like Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley and Draco Malfroy, as well as the lives of Harry Potter’s children, especially Albus, his second child.
Albus is the odd child. He ends up in Slytherin unlike his older brother and younger sister who are both in Gryffindor. Albus finds it difficult being part of his family’s legacy whereas Harry Potter struggles to be a good father to Albus. As Albus tries his best to live up to expectations, he tries to do something right but sometimes, doing the right thing isn’t the right thing at all if it brings harm. Harry Potter later on will find the answers to being a better father to Albus.
I sincerely did enjoy this 8th Harry Potter book.
(WARNING : REVIEW AHEAD HAVE SPOILERS!)
I was so shocked when I find out that Voldemort has a child. You will be even more shock to find out who the mother of this child is. It is just weird to me. So weird. I still can’t wrap it around my head.
Anyways, I have to say I really like Scorpius. He is just so different from his father when he was Scorpious’s age. It reminds me of how kind children are until they are taught to be selfish and evil. I also love the fact that Albus made it into Slytherin. Why not have different lifestyle from expectations? Slytherin isn’t that bad at all. It’s the people who make the reputation.
What I didn’t like : Well, the idea of resurrecting Voldemort is an acceptable idea but not creative and surprising enough. I have to admit it seemed right to put something in about Voldemort because since book 1, it has always been about defeating evil, that is Voldemort. But somehow, as a reader, I wanted something more, something different, something even more exciting.
