Harry Potter and The Cursed Child
I love Harry Potter series, blindly. Does not matter what Joanne Rowling writes, if it is related to HP world, I am in with full support. And Here come the something new, Harry Potter and The Cursed Child
This is going to be fully biased opinion. Little bit bragging too. I stopped myself from putting spoilers.
Harry Potter And The Cursed Child
Book is Amazing. I admit I was afraid to read as lots of things could go wrong. It was like the new window in a palace. By which I can watch some new things with different angles but that does not mean I will like them. But then I thought, ‘I can never unlike HP series book’. This made me read the book. I am glad to read it. Last 4 hours were full of feels and HOME.
I did not read it for the story or the fun, I read it for the satisfaction, to relive my life until now.
Thank You, Joanne Rowling,
The book literally is a time-turner.
It is in script form. Everything you get is in dialogues.
There is nothing much to say about the story without spoiling it, but one thing guaranteed, it is BEST book of this decade.
If I tell you even one line about the story, then it is ruined.
I will not tell you that there is no Cursed Child in Cursed Child, there are Cursed Childs. Nor I will tell you that many dead memories will be alive.
There is more in the book than you expected.
The best part I found is this, at a moment Harry was talking to Dumbledore painting.
HARRY: Go. Leave. I don’t want you here, I don’t need you. You were absent every time it really counted. I fought him three times without you. I’ll face him again, if needs be — alone.
DUMBLEDORE: Harry, don’t you think I wanted to fight him on your behalf? I would have spared you if I could —
HARRY: “Love blinds us”? Do you even know what that means? Do you even know how bad that advice was? My son is — my son is fighting battles for us just as I had to for you. And I have proved as bad a father to him as you were to me. Leaving him in places he felt unloved — growing in him resentments he’ll take years to understand —
DUMBLEDORE: If you’re referring to Privet Drive, then —
HARRY: Years — years I spent there alone, without knowing what I was, or why I was there, without knowing that anybody cared!
DUMBLEDORE: I — did not wish to become attached to you —
HARRY: Protecting yourself, even then!
DUMBLEDORE: No. I was protecting you. I did not want to hurt you . . .
DUMBLEDORE attempts to reach out of the portrait — but he can’t. He begins to cry but tries to hide it.
But I had to meet you in the end . . . eleven years old, and you were so brave. So good. You walked uncomplainingly along the path that had been laid at your feet. Of course I loved you . . . and I knew that it would happen all over again . . . that where I loved, I would cause irreparable damage. I am no fit person to love . . . I have never loved without causing harm.
HARRY: You would have hurt me less if you had told me this then.
DUMBLEDORE (openly weeping now): I was blind. That is what love does. I couldn’t see that you needed to hear that this closed-up, tricky, dangerous old man . . . loved you.
A pause. The two men are overcome with emotion.
HARRY: It isn’t true that I never complained.
DUMBLEDORE: Harry, there is never a perfect answer in this messy, emotional world. Perfection is beyond the reach of humankind, beyond the reach of magic. In every shining moment of happiness is that drop of poison: the knowledge that pain will come again. Be honest to those you love, show your pain. To suffer is as human as to breathe.
HARRY: You said that to me once before.
DUMBLEDORE: It is all I have to offer you tonight.
HARRY: “The truth is a beautiful and terrible thing, and should therefore be treated with great caution.”
GINNY look at him, surprised.
GINNY: A strange thing to say to a child.HARRY: Not when you believe that child will have to die to save the world.
Dumbledore case become more clear in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
I am happy that Harry realized that how much flawed Dumbledore was.
No more Quotes from the book, I will not spoil it. I want to do that.
I will not do that. But let me tell you that that many fan theories proved right in the book. It too opens the doors for many discussion as the concept of the plot is itself very wide and huge.
It is one of the best releases of this year. Pokemon Go game is also on the list.
2016 is making us living again our childhood.
You will like to see this too. A combo of PinkFloyd and HP. Hey You !!! Harry Potter.
