First of all, praise to you J.K. Rowling for blessing us with another installment of Harry Potter. I was a little worried about this book because of the mixed reviews I read but I assure you it’s a 5-star book. I literally finished it in a few days. That is unheard of with my lack of focus. It also helps that it is a script so you can flip through pages pretty quickly.
But I’m going in deep now, so beware, spoilers ahead!!
I read spoilers about people having a hard time with the book because of Harry’s adulthood antics like Ginny making him give up sugar–but it’s not that bad. I was worried that the book would be too far fetched and get rid of the Harry, Hermione, and Ron personalities that we love. But lez be honest, they are grown up now so it was bound to happen that they would deal with “being adults” and the real (wizard) world. I did feel like Ron was portrayed a little dumb. He’s just a side-kick to Hermione, but major girl power going on – which was awesome. I also loved Draco in this book. Finally, Draco gets to be somewhat of a hero and actually show that he has a heart.
Oh, I was also reading reviews that people felt like Harry’s and Draco’s sons had a little hidden love affair. But I didn’t get that vibe after I read the entire book. Besides, Albus had a crush on creepy Delphi and Scorpius likes Rose. Which by the way, how sad is everyone that Rose and Albus didn’t get along? That was a hard one for me to grasp, but I understand this was not supposed to be perfect. 🙁
Speaking of Delphi by the way, I did NOT see that coming. That was weird. I about had a heart attack when they got stuck in 1981. Also, how in the world can Voldemort possibly be able to procreate? I did read a review about that and I agree… how can he have enough emotion to even “do it”? EWWWWWWWW
So, so gross.
AND how can Cedric possibly be capable of becoming a Death Eater? I didn’t like that part. I felt like J.K. Rowling just wanted to ruin us.
It also felt pretty corny when Harry turned into Voldemort to trick Delphi. Like, what he was saying to Delphi, yeah right Voldemort would be that believing he had a daughter. I actually did want Voldemort to meet her to see what would’ve happened. I could see him just killing her.
Oh! And can we just talk about Hermione being a teacher? And a really mean one at that? I didn’t care for that part. I also really hated when Harry talked smack to Professor McGonagall. How dare you, Harry Potter!
Okay, I’m calling this post good. One last thing, though.
For those who read it, what part did you like/not like? Do you wish it would’ve ended differently? I think that’s why it might not get as great reviews. We’re used to Harry Potter changing something by the end of the book and this one nothing really happened. It was just a learning experience. So that was why I think the actual books are better but this was still a great book! 5 out of 5 success!
