Book Review
I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed this follow-up to the Harry Potter series! It was a very enjoyable (and often nostalgic) trip down memory lane. I was delighted and surprised by how many familiar faces from the original books popped up along the way. While the script format was difficult at first to read, I was able to get into it as the story progressed. Since the majority of the story takes place in familiar locations that J. K. Rowling (and the films) have already richly described for us, my imagination was able to fill in a lot of the scenery around the otherwise sparse script prose. Overall it was a wonderful tale of bromance and adventure, and I definitely recommend it for any HP fan.
