Don't to have too high expectations. A phrase I've said to myself again and again. Still, there were expectations of a loving reunion with a world that feels warm and fuzzy. When I can't quite figure out my life, reading Harry Potter makes me feel at home like no other books can. Like when I had just become a mother and was terrified. Harry Potter me feel warm and safe. J.K. Rowling and the Potter universe have special powers. As long as she had a hand in it, I thought the magic would still be there.
I don’t care what you did or who you saved, you are a constant curse on my family, Harry Potter.
It actually started well enough. We are on Platform Nine and Three-Quarters, Albus Potter (Harry Potter's son) is on his first trip with the train to Hogwartz. He is concerned about what house he is assigned, if he'll get any friends, if he'll succeed in school and whether he can live up to his famous father and successful older brother. Against everyone's expectations, he becomes friends with Draco Malfoy's son, is assigned to Slytherin and falls out with his father (Harry Potter).
The plot is OK I guess … It was a fun idea, but it was a bit clumsy performed. We have a huge amount of action that is squeezed onto 330 pages. It came to seem messy, and I could not find JK Rowling anywhere among the pages.
Harry, there is never a perfect answer in this messy, emotional world. Perfection is beyond the reach of humankind, beyond the reach of magic. In every shining moment of happiness is that drop of poison: the knowledge that pain will come again.
The style style was not right for me. Instead of the fun and creative details that adorn the Potter books, this one was packed with action and dialogue. Much of the time it felt like I was reading a bad fan-fiction. I wish that instead of having published the manuscript, it had been rewritten it as a novel. I think this is a play that should be seen, not read.
Well, this was depressing! I kinda liked it and it was quite interesting, but it was just so depressing that I actually felt uncomfortable reading itWell, this was depressing! I kinda liked it and it was quite interesting, but it was just so depressing that I actually felt uncomfortable reading it and was relieved to finish it.
I would recommend it to people who are interested in reading a classic and/or people who are interested in the American Dream as a theme in literature. But I probably wouldn't recommend it to anyone else....more
