About Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Audiobook
You’ve heard the news: Harry Potter’s story has the eighth chapter, in the form of play and script book and now an audiobook of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child! This is what Potter fans have been waiting for since closing the audiobook on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows years ago.
Way back then, J.K. Rowling left the Weasley-Potters (Harry and Ginny) and the Granger-Weasleys (Ron and Hermione) in a very good place: dropping their kids off at the Hogwarts Express for their first year. The grownups were safe, the kids were Hogwarts-bound, and all was well.
Until now, thank goodness.
The Harry Potter and the Cursed Child script book arrived on July 31, the day after the play’s premiere. Now you’ve already had the 8th audiobook of Harry Potter Audiobook series here at www.audiobookforsoul.com: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Audiobook.
For the first time since 2009, Potter fans around the world will get to experience what it feels like to hear a book that thousands of other people are listening at the same time – to (narrated by Stephen Fry and Jim Dale), essentially, have a massive audiobook club that has members of every age, in every country. Few things unite fans in this crazy world the way Potter does, and the arrival of the eighth chapter of his story is cause for massive celebration.
About the Author of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Audiobook
Although she writes under the pen name J.K. Rowling, pronounced like rolling, her name when her first Harry Potter book was published was simply Joanne Rowling. Anticipating that the target audience of young boys might not want to read a book written by a woman, her publishers demanded that she use two initials, rather than her full name. As she had no middle name, she chose K as the second initial of her pen name, from her paternal grandmother Kathleen Ada Bulgen Rowling.
She calls herself Jo and has said, “No one ever called me ‘Joanne’ when I was young, unless they were angry.” Following her marriage, she has sometimes used the name Joanne Murray when conducting personal business. During the Leveson Inquiry, she gave evidence under the name of Joanne Kathleen Rowling. In a 2012 interview, Rowling noted that she no longer cared that people pronounced her name incorrectly.
