J.K. Rowling has once again waved her wand and weaved her magic.
Fantastic Beasts and where to find them the original screenplay was inspired by the Fantastic Beasts and where to find them Hogwarts text-book by Newt Scamander (written by J.K Rowling) that was featured in the best-selling Harry Potter Series. This Original Screenplay is J.K. Rowling’s debut into screenwriting.
As a massive Harry Potter fan I will freely admit that I love everything that has anything to do with the Harry Potter Universe. So the chances of me loving this book were high.
This book is of course written in screenplay format so it did take a few pages to get into the flow, but once it got going it was Fantastic. Because of its screenplay format there is a glossary at the back of the book to explain the movie/film terms that are used throughout the book.
As far as the story goes, it was bloody brilliant (said in Ron Weasley’s voice). Following Newt and his fantastic beasts through New York City was thoroughly entertaining. I loved that there was a mixed suitcase of creatures, some that readers of the Harry Potter books will know and love, and magically wonderful new ones to fall in love with.
I had high hopes for this book and J.K. Rowling didn’t disappoint. The descriptions were superb, everything just flowed right off the pages and into my imagination. With a fabulous setting, awesome characters, magical creatures and J.K Rowlings Descriptive writing this book is a wonder to behold.
Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them the Original Screenplay is a must have for any Harry Potter fan. When the last page turns you will indeed be asking yourself where you can find more Fantastic Beasts.
