Today’s the day! And what a day it’s been!
Thanks to the glory of Amazon PrimeNow, I woke up to find this on my doorstep (delivered at 1:00 a.m., according to the tracking notice):
Which I ripped open as soon as I got my hands on it, and grabbed this:
At which point, I sequestered myself away with my book and a big mug of coffee, and didn’t come up for air until I got to this:
Well, you certainly won’t get any spoilers out of me about the plot, but I will say that I loved being back in the world of Harry Potter, was delighted by the familiar characters as well as the new ones, and thought it was clever, moving, and loads of fun! Yes, it’s a bit weird reading a script and not a novel, but that’s okay. One thing that absolutely came out of this reading experience for me was a burning desire to get to London and to see the play! Don’t know how, don’t know when, but I’m going to make it happen.
Because I loved it all, and I’d give anything to see these two — and the rest — live on stage:
Did you read it yet? What did you think?

I’m so glad you loved it! I’m just about to start it.🙋🏻
Yay! I hope you enjoy it! I’ll definitely need to read it again in a calmer state of mind so I can actually absorb the details. 🙂
Thanks Lisa! I read Act 1 last night, and while I could tell it’s definitely not written by Rowling, I thought it was pretty good.😊
Does it read nicely, even in script form?
Yes! I mean, it’s a different reading experience, but the story flows quite nicely. It made me really want to see it all in action!
I also loved it! My husband, however, hated it 😦 We have decided he is a bit too analytical to really enjoy it because he just keeps thinking about all the implications for the original stories and the different things he didn’t think really made sense. But I go with the flow a bit more, so I thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely read it again 🙂
I’m a little more on the fence after my initial reading buzz has faded. I mean, I did love it, but certain things don’t really make sense for me once I think about them… but over all, I loved it enough that I managed to get tickets to see the play in London next year!
