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

Book Review: Reviving Evan by Venessa Kimball

image

I loved the story of Reviving Evan. You get to see her point of view on the events that took place during the time period of Saving Gavin and Resurrecting Gavin.

Evan has it tough around her as she puts the pieces back together in the final semester of High School. What was holding Evan together has now disappeared. Her life raft is her few remaining friends willing to talk to her. Yet, her tormenters got a slap in the wrist.

To find out how Evan deals with the situation at hand, I suggest you read Reviving Evan.

Book Review: As the Crow Flies by Robin Lythgoe

As the Crow Flies. Robin LythgoeSynopsis:
For a thief, getting caught is never a good thing. Getting caught by a wizard is even worse.
‘One more job’ meant that Crow, a notorious thief, could retire with Tarsha, the woman of his dreams, but ‘one more job’ may just mean his life.

When he sets out to abscond with that last brilliant treasure and seek a life of ease and pleasure with the jewel of his heart, Crow seriously underestimates his mark, the Baron Duzayan. Under threat of death by poison, Crow is coerced into stealing an improbable, mythical prize. To satisfy the wizard’s greed and save the life of his lady love, he must join forces with Tanris, the one man he has spent his entire career avoiding.

But what’s a man to do when stealing that fabled prize could level an empire and seal his fate?

From a dungeon black as night, to the top of a mountain peak shrouded in legend, a man’s got to do what he must.

Until, of course, he can think of a better plan…
