Newt Scamander: Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - J.K. Rowling

I will admit that I watched the movie before I read this book so I was pretty excited to pick this one up and return to the amazing world of Harry Potter, however, it was not quite what I was expecting. Based upon the fact that I saw the movie first, I assumed (I know I know) that this book was going to be more of an adventure story than an education book. I now know I should have read the screen play version of this book instead, but I had no idea there was one.

This book gives an in depth look at all the creature you encounter in Harry Potter and some that you do not (maybe in future books...fingers crossed) as well as I'm sure the screen play for the movie that I just became aware of. So I guess this is a very short review of the wrong book, lol. If you want to know more about the creature in Harry Potter, this one is for you. I did enjoy learning about the creature and probably would have enjoyed it more if I would have read it when I was first discovering Harry Potter many many years ago now. I know that it makes me want to reread the Harry potter series and I am so looking forward reading them to my child and my husband discovering them as he has not read them yet (no idea why not lol). Now I just have to get my hands on the screen play and read the book I meant to.

Enjoy!!!

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Book Review
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay - J.K. Rowling

This is written so much better than Cursed Child (which was obvious that Rowling didn't write). I hated that one and like to pretend it doesn't exist. But Fantastic Beasts has all of Rowling's humor and writing style. I don't really like this whole screenplay thing, I'd much rather her take the time to write another book but I did enjoy reading the scenes of the movie, which I also enjoyed very much. 

 

Enjoyable, but I want a full book by Rowling (Marauder's series please????).

Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay - J.K. Rowling

I cannot see this screenplay without also thinking about the movie. I saw the movie twice and read the book in less than a week, I think this goes to show how much I was enjoying it.

I've to admit that I don't mind reading screenplays, which might hold some people back. The story in the screenplay was however, a lot better than I expected it to be. I was a bit wary before seeing the movie that I would be heavily disappointed but instead I really, really liked it.

The characters were really great. Even if all of them actually fit into one type or another, they were great and I was cheering for them. Also the 1920s setting worked really well for me. My friends and I are already discussing what the other movies/screenplays are going to be about.

I can't wait for them to get loose (preferably somewhere close to me)!

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Review
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - J.K. Rowling

I read this in one morning. It’s not a long book. In fact, it’s more of an encyclopaedia for the bests of Harry Potter (although I’m not too sure if it’s a complete one as there aren’t that many). Now, if you read this book expecting a novel, well I am going to tell you now, go to your local library and read it. It’s not worth buying (unless you want to support the publisher and the charity).

I can’t say much about ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’. I mean, I read through it and thought the creatures were interesting, but now, writing this review, I’ve forgotten most of the creatures and what they do. I really like J. K. Rowling’s graphical descriptions and the magical words she oozes so easily. One day, I hope to be as magical as her.

Other than what’s above, the book is really short. I read it in an hour… or an hour and a half. Somewhere around that. That’s really fast for me. So, it’s not that long. But if you really like J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter world, and you want to add this to a collection you’re building, I’ll go ahead and recommend it. I recommend a read (from your library or where ever) in any case for all fans of the books.
