Book Review: Harry Potter and The Cursed Child

Image
Being a huge Harry Potter fan and after reading all Harry Potter books more than 5 times, I was super excited to get my hands on Harry Potter and The Cursed Child. The way J K Rowling has expanded the world of wizard and Hogward's was fascinating, enchanting rather. There have been times when I take any Harry Potter book and spend nights reading it. The way Harry along with Ron and Harmione faced which was thrown in their way, was really encouraging. From fighting Voldemort and his followers to cherishing friendship and family to quirky moments of their dating life, the Harry Potter book had it all in its own little world of Hogward's.
Once the seventh book, Harry Potter and The Deathly Hollow was out, I thought it was over. Especially after reading the Epilogue, I was really craving to read more about the world without Voldemort in it. A world where Harry is a regular Dad and Ron and Harmione together. Harry Potter and The Cursed Child is an answer to all those who asked for …

Many of us will take it positively and say if not this time surely next time whereas others will be depressed by their failure and they will be stuck in this black hole where they will start believing that they are failure.

Last weekend I spent my time watching the Star Wars series. Star Wars is one of the greatest movies of all time. One should watch it, not just for the marvel of cinematography and effects, but also for the character like Yoda and learning of a Jedi.
Jedi is like a soldier who brings balance in the Republic, they are the peacemaker. In other words, Jedi is like Auror from Harry Potter, warriors, FBI or Ninjas. They are trained to understand the force and save the Republic from the Dark Force. What excites me more is the learning from the movie about The Dark Side, Force around us and our emotions like Anger, fear and pain. The character which amazes me is that of Yoda, he is one of the greatest Jedi of all time, his words and his understanding of Force is very true even in today’s world.
The movie talk about Force, it is defined as energy which comes from everything around you - people, tree, flowers, water or even air. It is defined as “It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the ga…
