JK Rowling: New movie
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - J.K. Rowling

This afternoon my friend sent me a link on Twitter.  The link was from the Jk Rowling Facebook account, before open it I couldn't imaginate what I will read... What I read was AMAZING.

J. K. Rowling are going to write the script for a series of films based on the magical world.

Warner Bros. announced on 12th September 2013 that J.K. Rowling would be making her screenwriting debut with 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them'!!!!!, the first in a new film series which is part of their expanded creative partnership with J.K. Rowling.

The films will be inspired by Harry Potter’s Hogwarts textbook of the same name, and will feature the book’s fictitious author, Newt Scamander.

 

JK told us that the idea of make a film came from Warner Bros, the suggestion of turning 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' into a film.

Jk thought It was a fun idea and why not. But she didn't like the idea of other writer talking about "Newt Scamander". She has lived for son long in the fictional universe and she feels very protective of it and She knew a lot about Newt. She liked Newt a lot, because that She married Newt's grandson, Roft, to her favorite Harry Potter Character, Luna Lovegood.

As she considered Warners’ proposal, an idea took shape that she couldn’t dislodge. That is how she ended up pitching her own idea for a film to Warner Bros.

 

Aren’t all Potter fans always craved to know just a bit more about Harry’s world? I am sure we must have all wondered if there are more kinds of dragons other than the four mentioned in Goblet of Fire. Or are pixies really all that nasty as described in Chamber of Secrets? Or what exactly are grindylows and kappas?

 

Although it will be set in the worldwide community of witches and wizards where she was so happy for seventeen years, 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world. The laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films, but Newt’s story will start in New York, seventy years before Harry’s gets underway.

 

 

So for celebrate this news I will make a small review about the book! The book is really small but JK will write the movie, so We will discover a lot of new things!

Synopsis:

"A copy of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them resides on almost every wizarding household in the country. Now, for a limited period only, Muggles too have the chance to discover where the Quintaped lives, what the Puffskein eats, and why it is best not to leave milk out for a Knarl.

Proceeds from the sale of this book will go to improving and saving the lives of children around the world, which means that the dollars and Galleons you exchange for it will do magic beyond the powers of any wizard. If you feel that this is insufficient reason to part with your money, I can only hope most sincerely that passing wizards feel more charitable if they ever see you being attacked by a Manticore."

 

It is a Harry Potter book that I rarely read but always it make me laugh when I do. They were perfect for the charity they were written for: Comic Relief, because they offer just that, some comic relief.

Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them is written as Harry’s school book and has humoristic comments in the margin, like many school books do. The book itself is funny at times but it is really the comments that are the highlight of the book.

These books are not necessary to understand the Potterverse but they certainly add a bit of flavour to them.

It was (too) short and interesting, written in the amazing style of Rowling and it wowed me. In this book you will find many interesting creatures, some mention in the books, some not. I felt like it was too short, there could be a whole encyclopedia on these creatures and I'd read it all.

The beasts are categorized by alphabet and they all have the dangerous level of Xs by their name. There are nice descriptions and bottom page notes and there's also a foreword by Dumbledore and an introduction to the book. It looks like a real textbook.
I enjoyed reading it very much.

Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison - Piper Kerman I was bored and started to watch the Netflix series- rapidly watching the entire first season over two days. I love the show and will watch it when it returns, but I am what you would call a book snob, so I picked up a copy of the book.

As I expected, the book is 10x better than the show. The show, while amazing, has been altered and seems to be catering towards lurid fantasies of the viewer rather than look inside the life of Piper Kerman and her fellow inmates that the book gives us.

For example, Pennsatucky, in the show is shown to be a rabid Christian that has it in for Kerman... not the Pennsatucky that we meet in the book however. Also- Nora? She wasn't at Danbury with Kerman... there was no rekindling of their romance... there was no soap business awaiting Kerman with a pregnant friend, Larry's father was not her lawyer... I am rather disappointed in the show that has catered to what they think viewers want to see rather than what Kerman has and wants to tell people about her experiences... oh yeah... there was no prisoner who was impregnated by the returning-vet-turned-prison-guard...

And still, the book is so much better.
