I knew from the beginning that this was written as a play script, and I was fine with the writing. What I wasn’t crazy about was the portrayal of Ginny and Hermoine who were portrayed as wife figures throughout the book. The confrontation with Dumbledor’s portrait left me speechless and not in a good way. I also didn’t like the portrayal of Harry and to say that he didn’t know how to raise his children since he didn’t have a father figure – he had many over the years!
This book wasn’t about Harry but primarily focused on his son, Albus Severus Potter who felt pressured being Harry’s son. From the beginning, Albus was afraid of being assigned to the Slytherin’s. As fate would have it, Albus befriends Scorpius Malfoy and is now a Slytherin. This installment continues with child innocence attempting to right a wrong. There were some boring sections in this book, but in typical Harry style. As for this reader, I felt that the book could have been stronger portraying Harry as the doting father and Ginny, Hermoine, and Ron as supporting side kicks.
