By Mikaela Nadeau

What is there to say about a novel set 19 years after The Battle of Hogwarts?

Harry Potter and the characters - need I say more!? This was actually the best part to me about reading Harry Potter and the Cursed Child because it gave all of us fans and readers a chance to see an adult Harry, Ron, and Hermione. The most wonderful thing about seeing these characters evolve is that some have changed for the better, and some have stayed the same.

There was no inner dialogue, therefore you are left to your own devices to figure out who the characters really are. Some may actually place this within the 'Bad' things about this book, however I really enjoyed it. It left me to my own devices to judge these characters, and also learn how true they were to themselves through the dialogue itself. If you've read all the Harry Potter novels, than at this stage of the game, not having an inner dialogue doesn't ruin anything because of our own innate knowledge of these characters.
