My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was a very so-so novel for me. I wanted to love it but it definitely fell short of my expectations.
I feel torn with this book, it had moments that I really loved but I feel a lot of those were simply playing on old emotions from the original Harry Potter books. The plot is very bizarre (I have a feeling it would be much better to actually go and see this played out rather than simply reading the stage directions) – I found myself laughing at how ridiculous the story was and couldn’t quite believe this came from the same woman who brought us the other books.
A very quick read – it’s definitely one you could get through in an afternoon, I am glad I read it but don’t think I’ll be picking it up again in the future. I would however love to see it enacted on stage.
