Terri Really?? I hadn't heard about this. I must be living under a rock!

message 2: by Ryan (new)

Ryan Wilkey Thinking the same thing.

message 3: by Soudha (new)

Soudha I'm so glad I'm not the only one who thought it felt like fan-fiction :/

message 4: by Itsskelseyy (new)

Itsskelseyy I'm completely agree about the "fanfiction" part

message 5: by Karleigh.Reads (new)

Karleigh.Reads Me too. Def fan fiction

message 6: by Vanessa (new)

Vanessa I'm not reading the spoilers until I've read it, but I'm genuinely nervous to read this now :( I wasn't super excited for it or anything, so maybe I won't find it incredibly disappointing, but I dunno... Hope it doesn't taint HP for me!

message 7: by Danielle ♥ (new)

Danielle ♥ Just remember, you aren't going to get the old same feelings because they are 19 years older, and by page 50, 3 years have already passed and its 22 years later, so we need to remember they are 22 years older than they were when we left off.

message 8: by Margaux Andrea (new)

Margaux Andrea Ooh, I actually forgot about Teddy! But he was a very important character at the end of Deathly Hallows, so it IS weird why he was not even mentioned in this supposed sequel.

message 9: by Jacob (new)

Jacob McCabe I wasn't as disappointed at all. Hm. I see your points though. The time-turner stuff pissed me off at first before they explained how there's different kinds of time-turners. I don't know, I think I was just resigned to be a bit disappointed when I started, so I ended up loving it. Bummer.

message 10: by Lynn (new)

Lynn Farina (Lynnie’s Library) I felt the same way! I feel so let down.

message 11: by Judy (new)

Judy Chessin What Maxwell said!!!! Review is better than the play!

message 12: by Vera (new)

Vera I feel you. I avoided writing a review for weeks just because it made me sad thinking about it...

message 13: by Mariana (new)

Mariana Schneider The trolley witch made me go "what the fuck am I reading? This is worse than all the fanfiction I read in my teens! Those had Harry and Draco making out, how can this manage to be worse??"

It's an achievement for sure...

message 15: by Fatemeh (new)

Fatemeh Baktash completely agree.It was a total waste of time.I prefer to believe the future that I had created in my own disappointed...

message 16: by Duaa (new)

Duaa Saqlain so true all of it. the only redeeming quality was that it had harry potter in it and that also wasnt for long.

message 18: by Susana (new)

Susana M. you mean Rose Granger-Weasley being in it for long enough to be a stuck-up b*tch :(

message 19: by Lara xoxo (new)

Lara xoxo i have not read it yet so glad to know it is good

message 20: by Francesca (new)

Francesca I agree with this. I actually didn't mind it being a play and was able to imagine the scenery and sets anyway but the story itself was just so wrong, IMO.

Also, the trolley witch part freaked me out! There's a scene in the movie 'Ghost' where he's on a train and another ghost lunges forwards towards the camera, shouting at him, and that part scared me when I first saw it and still creeps me out and it made me think of that so it gave me the creeps.

message 21: by Christy (new)

Christy I completely agree. It depressed the hell out of me. I wish I could scrub it from my brain

message 22: by Amy (new)

Amy Yes it was awful. I too wish it could be scrubbed from my brain. How could the essence of all the characters be lost for the sake of a new instalment. The only saving factor- I got to read a new Harry Potter book.

message 23: by SpinTheLion (new)

SpinTheLion てぇぼおっづくり今十分あるpぁ
its a failure its just a play

message 24: by Farzia (new)

Farzia Afroze this is exactly what I'm feeling after reading the book

message 25: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer Shinohara When did Bellatrix have time to procreate (I never even got the impression that Voldemort would even think about sex(revolting to even consider it)), get pregnant and give birth to this "daughter" before she died at the hand of Mrs.Weasley?!?! Not unless wizards know something muggles don't about gestation.... And that's just one of the many, many, sad inconsistencies/things about this play.. Not worth taking the time to read like everybody on here is saying it is Fanfic at its worst. Your better off rereading all the original series instead.

message 26: by Shauna (new)

Shauna screen shotted your review. you said everything I'm feeling. THANK YOU for calling out the trolley witch!

message 27: by Willow (new)

Willow This is DIFFERENTLY not the best Harry Potter book,but it's no way the worst book that I have read,at least Harry,Hermione and Ron are in it!!!

message 28: by Holly (new)

Holly I definitely agree with you. I had wanted to read this book for so long, but it did NOT live up to my expectations at all. This is coming from a big Potterhead, I love Harry Potter. I was very disappointed with this book. It would be fun to see the play, but I don't think I will read it again.

message 29: by Sally (new)

Sally Dagger if I could I would give this book zero stars. I didn't bother writing a review because I didn't want to think about it. it was utter rubbish. golden ort having a child? what is this? he was conceived under a love potion, he has an inability to feel love. he's the asexual of all asexuals. we all know Bellatrix loved him but I doubt he would indulge her. also Bellatrix showed no signs of being pregnant seeing as though the baby would have to be made before the battle of hogwarts. the time turners, just no. what happened to the previous genius idea? why has it turned into this?! I LOVE hp. I'm a hard core potter head but THIS? I can't. it was literally THE WORST thing I've ever read. was worse than stupid Snamione (have no idea how that came into being) fanfictions! it's exactly what it was a terrible fanfiction. this will never be considered canon by me.

message 30: by Sophia (new)

Sophia I totally agree with you
It was TERRIBLE x55555555555454444456677889999

message 32: by Tucker Family (new)

Tucker Family as a life long potterhead I can completely agree with ths review that has been sent down from the heavens. But to be honest I thoigjt the whole trolley witch thing was super funny, how anyone can come up with an idea worse than... I do not know.

message 33: by Agewen (new)

Agewen Stifford CHEERS FOR SCORPIUS. I really love him<3

message 34: by Soumi (new)

Soumi Sarkar i dont care about rose granger but what bugs me is, "because you dont have a child!" i think everyone knows what im talking about

message 35: by Caroline (new)

Caroline I agree, I did dislike it. I refuse to call tjis the 8th Harry Potter book

message 36: by Megan (new)

Megan Przekurat I completely agree with this. I was soo excited, I had always wanted an 8th book, but after this I can say that 7 is where it needs to stay. As someone who writes fanfiction, this is exactly what it read like - very, very bad fanfiction. Although it's considered canon, I will never call it that.
