Unless you’ve been living under a rock you will be aware that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the script for the play of the same name, was released this weekend.

Firstly I have to say that I loved that the release was set for 31st July, Harry’s birthday, although a bet a lot of delivery men/women were probably not massively happy that they had to work on a Sunday to keep all up Potter fans happy! I happened to be in London yesterday and so didn’t actually get my book in my hands until 8.30pm, and which point I was not letting go of it until I finished it!

A prior warning, this review contains no spoilers. I have not included any information about the plot and mostly talk about how our characters and the wizarding world has changed int eh 19 years since the previous book. The only characters that I have made reference to are those that we, the public, have already been informed are in the play. I have included some quotes from the book, but have removed the character names from those that I think knowing who has said it would spoil it for you.
