Potter and Malfoy Junior: bromance on a quest
In short: I loved it. The world J.K. Rowling created is so wonderful and it felt great to be back there. The story starts where the last book ended. 19 years later, at platform 9¾, when Harry, Ginny, Hermione and Ron drop off their kids at the Hogwarts Express.
From then on, the story focuses on Harry’s youngest son Albus and his friend Scorpius Malfoy. Indeed, Draco’s son. A strange duo at first sight, but they are adorable. Too bad Harry and Draco don’t support the bromance. The two kids feel a bit misunderstood, standing in the shadow of their (in)famous fathers. They decide to go on a quest, which comes with impressive flashbacks and flooding emotions.
We were introduced to new interesting characters but the old, such as Snape and Dumbledore, were there too. One heartbreaking scene was the one where Harry asks the painting of Dumbledore for help to get along with his son. Dumbledore’s answer made clear that paintings are not the real person and gave me goosebumps: “Ah, really, what does my opinion matter anymore? I am paint and memory, Harry, paint and memory.”
