First Reviews of HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD: Today in Critical Linking

Critical Linking is sponsored today by Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo.image02


Reading the “Harry Potter” books was for so long a rite of passage for so many children (O.K., and adults), and the movies always felt like faithful adaptations that didn’t advance the plot. But this was something completely different, this sensation of coming to the story not alone in the corner with a book, but in a large theater in the company of some 1,400 other people.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child premiered last night in London. (Some spoilers in that link, so watch out).
