Lisa Marie | 1 comments Loved the book and the movie. Overall very good. I really like the female characters. Both of them are very good.


Idiosyncratic Librocubicultarist  (goodreadscominsomniac) | 1 comments My favorite characters were Newt and Jacob. I loved the screenplay and the movie, it was great. One of my favorite parts are when Newt and Jacob meet and the climax at the end.

I saw the movie and I keep meaning to read this. Now I have the chance to go and read it!


Isabella Sulti | 38 comments I saw the movie before I read the script and, while I was reading I could picture every scene perfectly. It was a very unique reading experience 💕


Alyson Stone (AlysonSerenaStone) | 185 comments Loved it!


Hayley ▪ Escape Into YA Books | 8 comments loved the movie! This was my first screenplay and it's kinda weird, i don't like reading a screenplay as much as a novel. it was like a summary of what happens


Stephanie (stephaniemcx93) | 1 comments I loved the book, it is so beautiful


Queena  (studycharms) | 3 comments This was my first screenplay read through as well. FBAWTFT would probably the only time I will ever see the movie before reading the book. And, I think it worked out pretty well. I could definitely picture the scenes unfold as I read the script. And, there are snippets that I didn't recall in detail from the movie which I saw emphasized in the script.

Overall, it was an extremely quick read and a nice segway for discussions about the script as well as how the actors and the cinematography brought the words to life on the screen.


Victoria Foyle (victoria_foyle) | 31 comments It was great. Jacob is the best.

S.T. Sanchez | 8 comments I loved it and can't wait for the sequel. I can't remember the characters name but I loved the little stick creature. He was by far my favorite:)

Erin | 4 comments I️ just loved everything about this! As a Hufflepuff it is great to see Newt on the big screen and in the book of course.

Tatiana Rocha (tnevesrocha) | 18 comments I think that for me, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Newt Scamander will forever be that small red book with handwritten annotations I have seating in my Harry Potter shelf. I just really can't get past that. I watched the movie and although I found Eddie Redmayne's performance outsanding, as always, I just can't really see it as part of the Harry Potter world, it seems to have too mant bloopers.

Akshara (aksh_ashk) | 14 comments I loooovvvveee the books! The screenplay and the school textbook too. Man, I wish I could afford the newly Illustrated edition.

But, I will always love the textbook the most. There's a lot of nostalgia in the graffiti by Ron, Harry ...and even (sacrilege!) Hermione.


Rebecca Sun I loved it! i read it too fast,so I'm looking forward to binge on it again sometime near when the next movie comes out. Whoo hoo! Favorite character is probably Newt. :)

Lynn Dalton (daltonsunshine) | 6 comments Does this book have its plot more geared toward children like in Harry Potter, or more toward adult characters?
