Thread Name: BS: The Cursed Child (J. K. Rowling)
Subject: RE: BS: The Cursed Child
I enjoyed the existing Harry Potter books, and even more so the films, but this new one sounds as if Rowling is pushing things a bit. The whole series seems to have ended in a nicely rounded way, and now we hear that one of Harry's three children (Albus) has a curse of some sort. Also, it's been scripted into a West-End play and none of the original cast from the films is in it. It has had rave reviews (the play, I mean) I wonder if the poor child has been invaded by Voldemort in some way? (as in The Exorcist)
I do feel that, after all his amazing and horrendous adventures, poor Harry could have had a rather more exciting life than working in the Ministry of Magic.
Can't work up much enthusiasm I'm afraid. I reckon Harry Potter has had his day.
