19 Years Later

“It is a beautiful and terrible thing, and should therefore be treated with great caution.”

Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, while his youngest son, Albus, struggles to bear the burden of an unwanted family legacy. As the past and the future intertwine ominously, both father and son learn of an unsettling truth, that sometimes darkness comes from unexpected paleces.

After 19 years, Harry Potter and his friends left their past aside, got married and became adults. They encourage them to embark on completely different adventures by getting their children on the red train, which they once rode on. But for children, Hogwarts will be more complicated than they think.

In the book, we read about Albus Severus Potter’s growing up and his past fame given by his father. Albus Severus Potter does not know that everything in his life will change after he is elected to the Slythetin house. Learning that his father is hiding a time-turner at the Ministry, Albus is inclined to change what happens to him as he solidifies his friendships with Draco Malfoy’s son Scorpius. This situation will cause them so much trouble that it will extend to Voldemort.

The book is written in a theatrical format, unlike his regular books. Although it may seem unreadable at first, it is not as difficult as one might think. Especially, starting right after the Deathly Hallows book, the last movie of the series, feels much weirder seeing that the series isn’t over yet and seeing everything 19 years later. While reading Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, I had a strange feeling of finishing all of Harry Potter’s books. Longing, sadness, joy… I don’t know, it was both happy and ad because I finished reading seven of his books. Because I miss reading The Cursed Child, my longing to re-read the efforts of our heroes when they grew up was a little bit satisfying. I was with them again, and this time they had children!

Written as a theatrical script, the book was good for re-adventuring. I didn’t want to put it down, but it certainly didn’t take the place of his seven books as a narrative. Things were moving too fast, almost everything was happening.

In Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the feeling I had during parts of Harry, Hermione and Ron was completely different. They had grown up now and were working in the Ministry of Magic. Involuntarily, I went back again and imagined them small again, in those corridors. Ron’s leech disease in 2nd grade when he cast the wrong spell on Draco, how Harry was a great Skeeker in his first year, Hermione’s intelligence being appreciated since her first year.

I think no matter how much time has passed, to think of a book’s heroes this way symbolizes how great the heroes created are. One cannot help but envy. Incredible for a writer. What an honor!
