Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two PDF

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two After years of wishing and waitingAT LAST My precious said in Gollum voiceUPDATED after reading NO NO NO NO Terrible writing I can let slide it's a play so I would expect the acting to salvage that but the plot was pointless the characters were well out of character and it feltHorrible like bad fan fictionno Now this was a real shame It read like some juvenile fan fiction The characters were utterly lifeless Perhaps seeing this would be better The stage actor’s performances would carry the emotion and drama the dialogue completely failed to conveyThe stage directions were also minimalistic I mean we have a basic location set for us but that’s about all There’s no real expression or sense of urgency All in all it’s just a little flat The plot is feasible even if it felt a little forced but the characters were just poor The new ones aren’t so bad but the old characters Harry Ron and Hermione were barely themselves They just had no depth to them; they’re like reflections of their surface level Ron felt like a piece of furniture that seemed to enjoy inserting several badly times jokes Hermione seemed cold And Harry Harry simply isn’t Harry How can he identify himself as a bad farther How can he believe that he had no farther figure in his own life He had many He had inspiration from many great men They taught him a great deal about life and himself in the process So why would a man who has defeated the face of evil be so daunted by giving his son some simple advice It doesn’t add up Harry Potter would make an excellent farther This didn’t even feel like the same worldYou can connect with me on social media via My Linktree Based on an original new story by JK Rowling Jack Thorne and John Tiffany a new play

premiere in London’s West End on July 30 2016It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic a husband and father of three school age childrenWhile Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted As past and present fuse ominously both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth sometimes darkness comes from unexpected places Update1 star for view spoilerScorpius Malfoy the precious angel child that I didn't expect to love so much hide spoiler If Daniel Radcliffe Emma Watson Rupert Grint Eddie Redmayne Katie Leung Evanna Lynch and Noma Dumezweni all said Trans Lives Matter so can you I'm not going to rate this I didn't hate it I didn't love it It's just a thing that exists and I'm accepting it for what it is edit I didn't mean for this review to come off as shady as it did I'm going to make a video discussing my feelings further I'm happy that we got to visit this world again but it just wasn't what I was expecting it to be If you LOVED this book that's okay I'm happy that you enjoyed it Let's be honest this read like badly written fan fiction nope It was alright It was just alrightI know I gave this 4 stars but to be honest JK Rowling can write a dictionary with Harry Potter illustrations and I'd probably give it 4 stars so my rating is almost irrelevant here given my extreme biasThe thing is it was cute it was sweet it was entirely nostalgic to see the old crew again but I hated the play format As a person who grew up with Harry Potter and who is in her early 30s now I feel like I grew up with Harry Potter and the crew and with the advent of this book I have in fact grown old with them It was lovely to see them again It was like meeting old friendsI don't feel old I'm a responsible person for sure but I feel young at heart When we're young adulthood responsibilities just the prospect of adulting seem so dauntingthen one gets there and it's like well I'm as immature as I ever was I love fun as much as I ever did Growing old isn't that bad And seeing the old crew being as much as they ever were brings joy into my not yet old and grizzled heartI could do without the kids to be honest Oh sure they're little Potter and Granger Weasley spawns but come on nobody ever has and nobody ever will win me over as much as their parents whom I have loved the instant we met them on the Hogwarts ExpressOk maybe not RonBut I digress The kids aren't all bad I rather like little Scorpius actually SCORPIUS And it’s just like my father’s I got his nose his hair and his name Not that that’s a great thing either I mean — father son issues I have them But on the whole I’d rather be a Malfoy than you know the son of the Dark Lord The adults have grown they've changed Some have changed so much that I hardly recognize them Draco for instance I like that he's well nicer now but he doesn't feel like Draco you know I've been so used to Harry and Draco doing thisThat it's rather discombobulating to see anything otherwiseBut yeah characters are great but the format THE FORMAT I don't even know it's fair of me to judge this based on the fact that I don't like that it's a play because for fuck's sakes IT'S A PLAY Like what did I expect This may be the most confusing review I've ever written I just don't like the play format It's meant for the stage That means it's up to the skill of the actors to portray what is implied It's up to the audience to interpret nuances It is almost entirely based on dialogue and I hate that I miss Rowling's writing I love Rowling's writing and I wanted of it The play brings up so many things that could have been written so much had it been expanded into a book format The children's growing pains particular that of young Albus Harry's feelings as a parent Draco's struggles with who he was and who he is Further Ron is relegated to little than comic relief Let's be honest I never liked the guy but for him to be much of the same character that he ever was conjures up the image of the try hard middle aged dude and I know that Ron is than thatI like it I don't like it I don't know But I would certainly relish watching it on the stage if I ever had the chance It's bound to be better than on paper You know I really hadn’t foreseen the publication of something to lengthen Harry Potter’s story after the conclusion that was Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows So the way I see it Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a lovely gift to every Harry Potter fan out there who has hoped and waited a long time to see their wizard friends againThough the plot holes are very visible and spread throughout the story they make for charming and heartfelt conversations between characters so I didn’t mind them all that muchThe best thing about this #8 Harry Potter is how nostalgic it makes the reader feel There are plenty of familiar faces – Harry Ginny Draco Hermione Ron Dumbledore etc – as well as some interesting new ones – Albus Rose Scorpius Lily JamesAdmittedly it was strange to read this supposedly 8th story in Harry Potter’s world in play format but the truth is it was extremely easy to imagine everything play out like in a movie so it all felt alive to meThis isn’t a book you have to read but if you’re a diehard Harry Potter fan I am going to look at you uite incredulously if you decide not to I’m sadly not going to be able to tell you that you're making the right choice because this is so so charming and fun but I can understand people wanting to have their own vision of the Harry Potter cast as adults and their children Yes it's a bit silly but I loved it stillBlog | Youtube | Twitter |
