Rated 5 out of 5 by from More magic off screen! This movie script brings the magic to life in book form and is a great addition to the film.
Date published: 2017-10-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book! I thought that this book was a great sort of prequel to Harry Potter. I especially liked the new language they used such as a no-maj instead of a muggle. I thought that it was interesting to visit a different location in the world and see how they do their magic differently.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I mean it was alright I have adored all other works by J.K. Rowling, but this was not great. Found it a bit all over the place, at the end I made the connections but throughout I just wondered "why include this?" a lot (not in a good way).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Utterly Fantastic! Having never read a screenplay before, I was unsure what to expect. Truth be told, I didn't have high hopes for this book. Did I expect a great story? Well, of course - Rowling's name is on the cover, after all. But did I expect to enjoy this book as much as I did, based on the format alone? No, I certainly did not. Ask anyone who knows me, and they'll tell you I'm a strictly paper-and-ink sort of reader. I prefer paragraphs, details, traditional story-telling. I can't remember the last time I read a graphic novel or a Shakespearean play. So picking up this book, I was a little hesitant. Turns out, not only do I have a thing for screenplays, but J.K. Rowling is even more amazing than I thought (and after reading her other well-known series, the title of which goes without saying, says a lot about how much I love this woman's writing). This is the kind of book that, immediately after finishing it, I want to go back to the beginning and read it all over again. I laughed, I cried (that ending!), and I desperately want to go back inside the suitcase again. Five brilliant stars, and recommended to anyone looking for an absorbing read!
Date published: 2017-07-09
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Harry Potter Fans will like I have to say I didn't expect much from this. I almost thought it'd diminish my love for J.K and her series but it was a good read and I recommend it to all.
Date published: 2017-07-09
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool Story, But not as good as Harry Potter This book is for fans of Harry Potter because it discusses how one of the famous novels in Harry Potter's wizard world was created which was Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them which students from Hogwarts studied from. The story is a cool back-story but it is nowhere near as good as the Harry Potter books, of course, because the Harry Potter books are the main books. This book seems like a spin-off or a short story based on one of Harry Potter's characters which is Newt Scamander. In fact, this book is written in play form like Shakespeare so it is a play. Also, there is a movie. However, I would not recommend this book to people who are not fans of Harry Potter because it talks about the world of Harry Potter and is basically the same world but a different character. Vice versa, I would recommend this book to Harry Potter fans. It is not the best book, but it will be cool to find out more about J.K. Rowling's universe. Personally, I did not enjoy it that much, but I thought it was cool how it described how the famous textbook was made that Harry, Ron, and Hermione often studied the fantastic beasts from.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light Read This was a pretty easy read because it's a screenplay and it's rather fast paced. The creatures that Mr. Scamander unleashes on the streets of New York will have you on the edge of your seat throughout the entire story. If you like the Harry Potter series (movies included) you're sure to love this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved, Loved, Loved It. I fell in love with this book immediately. Unlike the Cursed Child, it was WAY more Rowling-esque and therefore it was just so magical. It created a whole new world of wizardry for readers, and really stayed true to the HP franchise.

I'm also glad (or maybe not glad?) that there was no book before the movie, that way there was no disappointment from book to movie adaptation. I also loved the little drawings within the pages, and especially loved the Niffler under the book cover!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from J.K. Rowling has cast her spell again This is much better than "The Cursed Child" screenplay. J.K. Rowling's unique writing style illuminates Newt's adventures as it did Harry's. I hope that she continues writing for this movie series. Between the writing and the beautiful cover design, this screenplay makes an excellent edition to an any readers "Harry Potter" collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magical Experience This was my first book of 2017 that I started on January 1 and finished a couple days later. Have you seen the movie? Do you want to relive it? I most certainly did and had a blast! It's a fast read too, considering it's the screenplay so you can read it in one sitting; almost as if you're watching the movie! A true collector's item, as my sister told me since it was my Christmas present from her, but also a book to cherish for the love of reading. I mean, J.K. Rowling did write this.
Date published: 2017-04-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it!! Now this book/movie, is not like the Harry Potter books or movies. It exists within the same universe and brings different characters in the story shedding a new light before Harry is born. This book is just as magical, however don't treat it like Harry Potter. I went in expecting it to be a good book, of course supporting anything with J.K Rowling. But I was surprised to find I actually really enjoyed it and didn't see the ending coming, a good twist for Harry Potter Fans. I'm excited to read/see the next instalments.
Date published: 2017-04-22
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wouldn't buy it Even as a big Harry Potter fan, I don't think this screenplay is worth buying. I don't even think the last screenplay was worth buying (Cursed Child). I personally just don't think there is any need to expand the universe and tell more stories with different characters and different time histories. I wish people would just leave original, great stories alone and end them where they should end. I watched the movie for Fantastic Beasts and didn't enjoy that either. The original Harry Potter series is and always will be enough.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay by J.K.

It's a script, so not really comparable to the books, but if you've seen the film, it's fun to read through the scenes and the directions the actors would have been following! The book is also beautifully designed and has some wonderful artwork that helps link it back to the film!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Book I bought the book back in November. I had seen the movie earlier in the week. I didn't know what a movie script would look like and was interested in seeing what one does look like. The dialogue matched the movie of course. I expected to see more of a description of some of the scenes, but it gave just enough to let your imagination fill in the blanks. I think that's all that was needed in the end. It's pretty cool all in all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What can I say Immediately takes you back. I opened the book and found myself once again immersed in the wizarding world. Don't let the format discourage you after awhile you'll barely notice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brings you back into the Wizarding World I really enjoyed this screenplay! I was a bit uncertain about it (after reading The Cursed Child (Which I did enjoy, but there were some weird things that went down in that)), but I am super glad I read this one! It takes you back to the Wizarding World with several new characters who all have their little quirks, which makes it a great story to read!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh, Decent... Another J.K. Rowling's book I wish was written like an actual book and not as a play or screenplay... Great storyline, but hard to get into the book the way it's written.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great She's done it again... even those this occurred years before Harry Potter, still gave me the same great feeling as when I read the series!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice and Easy Read I got this for Christmas, I had already seen the film twice but it was a nice bit of reading that gives a bit more insight towards the hidden details and nuances of the story that you might've missed during the screening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! Received this book as a Christmas gift, loved every page - could not put it down! Just keep in mind that it's a play (and will read differently than a book) and you should have an enjoyable time!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hilarious and heart-warming 4 stars for the dynamic between the protagonists like Newt and Jacob along with Tina and Queenie. XD Even though I still haven't seen the film yet, it was nice picturing Eddie Redmayne as Newt the whole time :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great companion to the movie If you loved the movie, you'll love the screenplay. I love the expansion of the wizarding world to incorporate North America, and I love that we get to learn more about wizards before Voldemort and Harry's time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from beautiful My eight year old and I loved reading this story together. We got drawn up into the magic of the story and wished it didn't end. I wish there was even more to it though, if you saw the movie, it was identical, which is good but we all know that movies usually skip over big parts and that the book usually is full of more detail, and more adventure... very quick read!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magical I bought this as soon as it came out and although it's the screenplay to the movie, I loved it nonetheless. I think it was witty and emotional and just an all around wonderful addition to the Wizarding World phenomenon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic About the world of magic, mysteries, animals and humans. Can they all live together in harmony? what or who is going to bring trouble?. The character names, the details about places, people and ongoings is beautiful and keeps your imagination working. It doesn't matter what age you are, this book is a good read.
