Summary:

With its wacky plot, uncharacteristic characters, and insanely inaccurate time-line, it reads more as a poorly thought out fan-fiction than an actual part of the Harry Potter series. I'm just going to pretend the books ended at seven and ignore the fact that I ever read this disjointed train wreck.

At Wizard World Philadelphia this past June, I saw several pairs of Gryffindor’s and Slytherin’s, a group of four friends representing each house and a woman wearing a toilet seat around her neck, dressed as Moaning Myrtle. I’m going to give Harry a little love on here, and give you 4 reasons to avoid seeing his adult misery in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
