Harry Potter and Cursed Child - Worth or Bah?

After finishing the 7 books about Harry Potter, I decided to read Cursed Child, the 8th Book by JK Rowling based on a Harry Potter play that starts from final chapter of Harry Potter and Deathly Howwlows. However I found this was Bah, something tension and boring; so I stopped reading it before it reaching middle. I stopped reading it in Part One. Childrens are growing up without actual story, their school life, and Potter's Ministry life are slow but ending fast. Everything is messed up. And I think the storyline is also messed up. Yet when I searched the response of the Play/Book ; many critics gave Cursed Child 4 to 5 star rating. Printed book also sold like hot cake. Really I don't think this book is worth for reading. But your response?

@thislittlepennyearns Ok Ok but didn't you felt unease with it, they are growing up without any story? Just Potter son revolting against his father?

I enjoyed it the second time; I was too busy trying to understand what was going on the first time I read it. I have not picked it up since, though. The same goes for "Fantastic Beasts" (the screenplay). I don't find it easy to read plays.

I never tried to read the books. But I am looking forward to reading them if I have a lot of time. I do think it should be read them because the adapted movies lack some of the details of the stories.

Not some, many of the details are missing, main story was much better.

@yugocean I agree. That's the reason why some film critics suggest to read the book first before watching the films.

@Shavkat I read the books later and enjoyed the books more; as for cursed child, I will probably finish it today, movie will come later.

Was there actually a book? I thought it was play. I don't know anything about it yet. I might have to go find a copy somewhere to see it for myself.

It was a play which has Printed edition. I was reading it, but now I am not, story is brain less. By the way how do you rate the story of it?

@yugocean Hmm... I think I'd prefer to try to read it first before giving it a rating. ;) Don't really know what the story is at this point.
