“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” the book version of the London stage play, has already sold more than two million copes in just two days of release.
That makes it one of the fastest selling books of all-time, albeit a long way from the staggering 8.3 million copies that the final ‘Potter’ novel “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” sold on its first day of release in 2007.
Despite plenty of advanced warning from author J.K. Rowling herself, the fact that the book isn’t a novel or novelisation but simply the manuscript used for the rehearsal version of the play has not sat well with some fans.
Rowling and Jack Thorne co-wrote said script which has since been tweaked for the final version that is currently running in the United Kingdom.
The story picks up ninteen years after the battle at Hogwarts and is said to be the last Harry Potter Rowling will do, though she is doing the film scripts for the “Fantastic Beasts” trilogy.
