Book Review: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two

harry-potter-cursed-child-final-coverThis book presents itself as one thing, the printing of the rehearsal script of a play. The book reads as such.

HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD PARTS ONE AND TWO takes place where JK Rowling left us in the Epilogue to HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS. But instead of following Harry, we follow the adventures of his youngest son, Albus Severus Potter, and his best friend, Scorpius Malfoy.

This seems like an unlikely pair considering that their fathers did not get along at all as children nor adults. In this story you learn more about Draco, Harry, Ron, Ginny, and Hermoine than you knew before as well as the adventurers Albus, Scorpius, and ‘Delphini’.

It is a great read and will hook you from the moment you begins reading it. I know it did me. Though, I have read all the other Harry Potter books so it makes sense that I would read this story as well.

But it reads like a script more akin to reading Shakespeare than JK Rowling.

As with any script to a play, you can imagine the visuals from the directions in the script. You can feel the tension, the intrigue, and the emotions. It was a masterful job and well written.

I love the adventure of Albus and Scorpius and how they set out to prove that they are not the outcasts that everyone makes them out to be. That the bullies are just those bullies. Also, the kids prove that not every good intention in magic turns out for the better, some backfire in a big, very nasty way.

I give HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD PARTS ONE AND TWO:

5of5

Review: Star Wars: Before the Awakening

Star Wars - Before the Awakening CoverStar Wars: Before the Awakening is in the line of Star Wars books leading to the new Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens. It

This tells the stories of the three main characters of The Force Awakens.

The story of Finn is set during his finally training as FN-2187 before the assault on a small village on Jakku. It tells of his four man training group, FN, that is overseen by the infamous, Captain Phasma.

The story of Rey is set on Jakku as she tries to survive by rebuilding an old starship only to be betrayed by those helping her salvage the parts.

The story of Poe leads him to meet the elder man on Jakku in a small village not far from Niima Outpost. This man has something that is vital to the location of the missing Jedi Master, Luke Skywalker. Both the Resistance and First Order are in search of this information. Leia sends Poe to Jakku to retrieve it. Setting the first scene of The Force Awakens.

It was a very good tale and well written. It is not overly too long like some of the Star Wars novels of the past. This tale gets you into the action not too far froTm the start of the story. It shows us how the Rebel Alliance and Empire thought about the status of Leia Organa.

If you have seen the new movie or not, I recommend this book for the Star Wars fan.

I give it a rating of 5 Dragon Coins

Star Wars: Moving Target is in the line of Star Wars books leading to the new Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens. It tells of a story on how the Rebel Alliance   on a rescue mission of Lieutenant Emmatt. The story is set between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back.

Han relays this story to a group of smugglers and bounty hunters. He is even in the very starship / bar that has changed its name and is in the story itself.

It was a very good tale and well written. It is not overly too long like some of the Star Wars novels of the past. This tale gets you into the action not too far from the start of the story. It shows us how the Rebel Alliance and Empire thought about Lieutenant Emmatt and his importance.
