Description of the book: Explorer and Magizoologist Newt Scamander has just completed a round-the-globe trip in search of the most rare and unusual magical creatures. Arriving in New York, he intends his stay to be just a brief stopover. However, when Newt’s case is misplaced and some of his fantastic beasts escape into city, 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. Set over fifty years before Harry’s story begins, and featuring a cast of remarkable characters, this tale of friendship, magic and mayhem is epic, adventure-packed storytelling at its very best.
How this book made me feel: Let me begin by making a confession, I’ve always been a Harry Potter fan, and all the books are real gifts of God (in this case J.K. Rowling) to me. I personally think that not only children will enjoy this story, but grownups as well, because it has something to offer for both. After reading this delightful book I noticed, that the characters are really strong and very diverse. We have some shy ones, some sassy and sexy ones and also powerful and dominant ones. I really liked this variety of characters as it made the book interesting. This creation has very fast paced and adventurous story going on in there, which I really enjoyed as it didn’t make me bored. It is absolutely true that this story is of magic, friendship, love and good winning against evil. It’s absolutely awesome. As this book is original movie script it is very easy to read it and pages just fly past. Unfortunately, if you saw the movie there is no really need to read it, because it’s exactly the same as the book. However, if you got your hands on the book first, don’t forget to see the film and compare your vision of this book with the movie director’s.
My rating: 10/10
