3.0 out of 5 starsScreenplay Not for me.. Story is gud
24 December 2017
Its confirmed.. Screen play writing is ssooo not my style.. U can go ahead and read it... But its not my cup of tea.. Was very excited wen i got d book . But now its been 2 months.. N i havent finished more than 8 pages... And mind u i finished al hp novels in 3 days max..
This was an amazing book. The cover was wonderfully decorated and velvety to touch. The paper quality was really nice. A-must have for Harry Potter fans. The story is about the magizoologist Newt Scamander. I loved it and believe all the the potterheads will love it too.
Well, well, well.. what should I say. It was fantastic, wonderful, amazing and adventurous. This review is a mix for both the movie and the book (because I can't even separate them, Duh!). It was just awesome, truly awesome. Though this book is not really a kind of novel (as it is a screenplay), but while reading each scene I felt that I am watching the movie again. As I progressed to each scene, I felt as if each scene was going live in front of me. The screenplay is exactly same as the book, nothing different (obviously apart from the wonderful cast and effects). And seriously I am glad that I watched the movie before reading this, otherwise I might have missed the charm. And I would suggest doing the same, to you all.
I just love the magical world that J K Rowling has created and I just love her imagination. So when I heard that a new movie/book is coming which has a setting of pre-era to Harrypotter, I was not able to resist myself from watching and reading it. I finally I completed it.
I loved all the characters of this new world. All the actors were apt for their particular role - Newt, Tina, Queenie, Jacob, Graves, Credence and all. But my favorite was (can you guess?) - Jacob. He was so adorable and cute. And Queenie is love. The chemistry between both of them is just so good. And I think both of them stole the show.
But one thing I missed was Jhonny Depp :( I heard, before watching the movie, that Jhonny Depp is in it, so I was eagerly waiting for him in the whole movie. And what, just one scene? That's not fair! But hopefully, he will have much bigger roles in the upcoming movies.
And now, lets talk about the main magical things here - the Beasts. All the beasts were unique, cute and entertaining. But my favorite were Muffler and Pickett. Niffler was so mischief and his greed for shiny objects is just so adorable. The attachment of Pickett with Newt will melt your heart.
All in all, this is the first book in the series which has laid the perfect ground for the rest of the books in the series., and it is definitely going to be magical and adventurous. I can't wait to see the next movie to come :( I would recommend it to all the fans of HP.
And yes, special praise to the wonderful cover of the book. The illustrations are too beautiful.
It's too beautiful and I bought it during sale and I got a pretty good offer !! The outer jacket feels like felt material . And the beautiful golden emboss is just truly Amazing!! I'm don't read a screenplay version of books, so this was purely for collection propose.
Saw the movie, LOVED IT, came home and immediately read this in one sitting! I was in Fantastic Beasts binge mode and it was like seeing the movie again! The story is brilliant and there's so much great detail in the screenplay. Plus the actual physical edition of this book is absolutely GORGEOUS.
I do suggest seeing the movie first (it's so fun and visually stunning--GO SEE IT) and the screenplay doesn't add much new stuff (a few little details and confirmations you might not pick up watching the movie) BUT STILL, this is definitely a wonderful addition to my collection of wizarding world things!
Being a huge Potterhead, I was really excited when Cursed Child was released. I honestly cried when the book came home. But I was very disappointed with it. I prayed to the gods that this book shouldn't be like Cursed Child and they heard my prayers. Jo really out did herself and I was absolutely baffled by her way of description even in a script. I absolutely loved it. I'm waiting on the sequel like my life depends on it. It's an amazing book. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I've already read it four times over. It's just mind blowing. LOVED IT.
It has the style of screenplay, do not expect a novel when you buy it. But unlike cursed child you can tell that Rowling wrote it. You can loose yourself in her description of writing events, just like you did in Harry Potter. It is definitely worth a buy even if you had seen the movie
