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…
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them marks the screenwriting debut of J.K. Rowling, author of the beloved and internationally bestselling Harry Potter books. Featuring a cast of remarkable characters, this is epic, adventure-packed storytelling at its very best.
Whether an existing fan or new to the wizarding world, this is a perfect addition to any reader's bookshelf.
This was a fun addition to the Harry Potter world. I started this book the second I pulled it out of the box and got half way through before I had to put it aside and get distracted by life again.
This book has an absolutely GORGEOUS cover and book jacket. I mean look at that jacket, who could not love it. I did not read this in the original book version so it was a whole new world for me. I loved the script of The Cursed Child so all of this culminated in me buying this for myself.
I usually don't mind reading in script format but I struggled through this one. I will have to see the movie and compare the two. However, I found the book to be extremely slow and harder to follow. I enjoyed the characters, they were fun and full of life. It helped that I had seen the trailers and could imagine the actors reading the parts as I read.
I look forward to going to see the movie in order to compare. I also plan to read it in the original book format as well to compare even further. I love the world that you are delved into with these books. For lack of a better word it is a MAGICAL world!
