Harry Potter & The Cursed Child on Sale July 31, 2016

Harry Potter & The Cursed Child Book Cover

If you didn't get a chance to pre-order your copy of the script for the play Harry Potter & The Cursed Child that I mentioned back in February, it's now on sale!  It's $14.99 for the eBook edition and $17.98 for the hardcover.

After reading the reviews, I can see many die-hard fans were disappointed when they read this script.  Beloved characters spoke and acted waaay out of character, but readers reported that they really enjoyed the new characters, like Harry's youngest son, Albus Potter, and his best friend (!) Scorpius Malfoy.  At the end of the day, Harry's story has already been told in the first seven books, according to J.K. Rowling, so this story should really be about the new characters.

If the play ever comes to a nearby theatre here in the U.S., I think I'd like to see it.  In the meantime, I'm eagerly awaiting Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them on November 18th!
