Fantastic Quote

We have fantastic news for those who love the universe of Harry Potter and audiobooks: Fantastic Beasts, narrated by the movie's star Eddie Redmayne, is now available on Audible.

For the uninitiated, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is the first in a set of textbooks at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardy. In this book, young wizards receive their introduction to magical beasts including the Hippogriff, the Basilisk, and the Hungarian Horntail. This is the first audiobook edition of Scamander's textbook ever to be released.

Court Read the "text book" when it first came out. (Also read the Quidditch one.) I don't do audiobooks, at all, but to listen to Eddie? Yup, you best believe I'm getting it from the library ASAP.

ashley Yay!! I can't wait for it to come out!

Danielle T I'm curious about the audiobook version- how will he narrate Harry, Ron, & Hermione's marginalia? Is there a way to describe "and the boys played hangman with 'acromantula'"? That was one of my favorite parts of the original!


message 8: by Elisabeth (new)

Elisabeth The Harry-Ron commentary is great in the book. However, a clip of the audiobook is on pottermore.com and it is great!

Casandra Sandu I can't realize which version of the book is he narrating. The one with Harry and Ron's adnotations? Or the newly release black and white illustrated edition? I love following my audiobooks while reading the printed versions and I can't seem to find the right edition to be able to follow Eddie. ☺
