I don’t even know how to start this review. I’m way too excited and emotionnally disturbed by this book LOL.
If I’m being completely honest and see this book on a pure rational side, from a perspective of a 22 years old woman, this book is childish and there’s no really depth into it.
BUT. This is Harry Potter. This world was my childhood and will always be the love of my life. This is where I fell in love with reading and litterature. Therefore, a lot of my attachment and emotions were biased in my opinion of this book. Afterall, it is my review and reviews are always subjective, right 😉
This book follows the adventures of Albus (Harry’s son) and Scorpio (Malfoy’s son). Two children who unexpectedly became best friends. Feeling like he doesn’t belong anywhere, Albus will convince Scorpi to return back in time and save Cedric Diggory’s life, thinking that major event will bring justice to the world.
The plot is not that amazing, nor why the fact that Cedric’s death was chosen as the main event, I don’t know.
I think the real magic from this book is the friendship between Albus and Scorpio. J.K Rowling has created for us the dynamic trio Harry, Ron and Hermione. And now, she made it happen again with these two and it’s adorable.Even when their parents are ennemies, Albus and Scorpio don’t care about it and still keep their solidarity no matter what.
I read this book in 2 hours and I was always hungry for more . I guess it just feels good to be back at Hogwarts, reading about those characters that have such a strong attachment to your past. Living a nostalgia al over again. I had t oclose this book several times to breathe and absorb my excitement. That’s how much Harry Potter is to me. I’m sure this book was a marketing move, because they know the power of Harry Potter. If it was any other author, this would be seen as a merely acceptable fanfiction pubkished on some forums on the internet.
And then I thought, WE ARE THE CURSED CHILDREN. Slaves to this Harry Potter industries, craving for more and more every single day. We can never really move on from Hogwarts. This whole has put a spell on us, forever.
