german and english review
Inhalt: Der Magizoologe Newt Scamander will in New York nur einen kurzen Zwischenstopp einlegen. Doch als sein magischer Koffer verloren geht und ein Teil seiner phantastischen Tierwesen entkommt, steckt Newt in der Klemme – und nicht nur er.
Ich wollte ja immer mit dem Buch warten bis ich endlich die Harry Potter Serie komplett gelesen habe aaaaber, ich wollte einfach nicht mehr warten.
Den Film habe ich vorher schon gesehen, deswegen war jetzt nichts in dem Buch wirklich neu für mich, trotzdem war es unglaublich schön es zu lesen, hat unheimlich Spaß gemacht und war wirklich wunderschön und magisch.
Ich liebe diese Welt einfach. Ich liebe die Charaktere. Newt, Tina, Jacob, und Queenie. Vor allem Queenie, ich liebe Queenie. Ich liebe jeden Moment zwischen Jacob und Queenie. AHHHH!!!! Ich liebe Jacob und wie er die Zauberwelt kennenlernt und alles zum Ende hin ist einfach so bittersüß.
Und dann natürlich Newts Koffer und dessen Innenleben, einfach so wunderschön magisch, die Welt darin, wie jedes der Tierwesen seinen eigenen Lebensraum hat.
Hab ich schon erwähnt, dass ich das Buch einfach nur magisch schön fand?!
Summary: When Magizoologist Newt Scamander arrives in New York, he intends his stay to be just a brief stopover. However, when his magical case is misplaced and some of Newt's fantastic beasts escape, it spells trouble for everyone…
I always wanted to read this book as soon as I finished reading the complete Harry Potter series buuuuut, I was tired of waiting.
I watched the movie way back when, so nothing in this book was really new to me, STILL, it was amazing to read it, it was fun, it was just beautiful and magical.
I love this world. I adore and love these characters. Newt, Tina, Jacob, and Queenie. Especially Queenie, I LOVE Queenie. I love the moment between Jacob and Queenie. AAAAAH!!!!! I love Jacob and how he discovers the magical world and everything towards the end of the book was just so damn bittersweet.
And of course Newts suitcase and what's in it, so beautiful, so magicals, that world inside where everyone of the beasts has it's own living space.
Did I mention that I think that whole book is just magically beautiful?!
Do you know that feeling that when you wake up in the morning and some strange creature is moving in your room, you suddenly get the urge to find out what it is? Yes? Then this is a wonderful book for you. Identify that Fantastic Beast and find out whether or not to panic (but remember to always take a towel with you)! Really useful!
Even if you haven't had any strange encounters with unidentified animals (?) this can still be a really nice book to read if you're a Potterfan...
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.
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????).
