This is an amazing book. I feel a little guilty that I love it even more than the original series! Fantastic Beasts and Where To find Them's world is huge, although it takes place all in New York City. It's a fun, exciting, and page-turning read that you will go to over and over again, falling in love with the characters each time. I really loved this book!

The screenplay is quite literally a word for word translation of the movie on which it is based. Unlike Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Fantastic Beasts only adds to the lore of our favorite magical world, and does not arguably damage them like Cursed Child is accused of doing. While there is a plethora of cute art in the book, it does feel like there is so much of it that it adds a good 20-30 pages.

A fun but unsurprising read, good for appreciating the directorial choices and art, but not much else. If you've already seen the movie and are looking for more, do not feel obligated to read this screenplay; you're not missing much.

I don't usually read scripts but I liked the movie and found it more enlightening after reading the screenplay. Maybe that's just because I didn't understand it half the time with their accents and the volume was super low because of my sleeping children ... well anyway, I recommend this for Harry Potter fans but it will be more enjoyable if you've seen the movie already. I'm looking forward to the rest of movies. I believe there are going to be 5 all together.
