|My this-is-why-I'm-not-a-professional-photographer picture of me, The Cursed Child, and my mismatched socks.|
The Cursed Child was definitely not as good as its predecessors, but it was still quite an adventure. I did feel that far too many liberties were taken (for example, the trolley witch... I mean, there was zero foreshadowing of that in any of the stories!), and when time travel got involved, it was pretty weird (even though we've experienced time turners before, the laws seemed different from those in The Prisoner of Azkaban). So it wasn't until the third act's sixteenth scene that I really got into it (plot twist!). But overall, I'd say to go ahead and give The Cursed Child a read (I mean, it's Harry Potter, so...).
You may want to know: There is a majority of magical content, as well as the (thankfully rare) usage of a swear word or two.
Have you read Harry Potter & the Cursed Child, yet? What did you think?
