Waiting on Wednesday #2

Hosted by Breaking the Spine

Title:  Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (Parts I & II)
Author:  J.K. Rowling
Expected Publish Date:  July 31, 2016


Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a new play by Jack Thorne, is the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. It will receive its world premiere in London’s West End on 30th July 2016 

It 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 children.

While 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.

My Thoughts:

I'm so torn over this because I'm a HUGE Harry Potter fan.  I've read all of the books multiple times, and seen the movies of course.  However, I hated the epilogue, I wish J.K. Rowling had never written it.  I'm also one of those who thinks she should stop writing the tidbits on Pottermore.  Here's my reasoning:  she included what she did in the books and left it there, either write books like the couple little "textbooks" we have about things, or let it go.

I want to read this book because I can't not, it's part of the Harry Potter franchise.  However, I'm not holding out hope about it, and I don't want it to ruin things that I've built up in my mind about the wonderful wizarding world of Harry Potter.
