Ooooookay, here goes nothing…
Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them (FBAWTFT) was a novel (or script) that I loved/enjoyed.
It was nowhere near Harry Potter and The Cursed Child, which was a complete disappointment…
No, this is not the Cursed Child anymore because IT IS WRITTEN BY NO OTHER THAN THE AUTHOR HERSELF, JK ROWLING. Pheeeew….
This novel was AMAZING, it was surreal. I loved how JK Rowling based the whole thing on your knowledge of Harry Potter. Ex- Nifflers, Muggles, Ministry Of Magic, etc.
Newt Scamander is nearing the nickname, Lana’s Little Nugget Part 2, right after Ron Weasley. He is such a fragile little person, but ironically he is a full grown adult. I’ll give you a moment to think about that.
Tina and Newt were the PERFECT duo. What I loved about this pair is because they love each other… as friends. They care about each other, and they do not fall in love like the typical boy and girl pair.
Jacob was a very nice played character. I really liked how JK Rowling included a non-magic person. It was special because Jacob stayed and helped Newt and Tina even though he is not fighting his own battle. Doesn’t make sense? I don’t get it either.
Queenie was… interesting. I’ve read about legilimency before in the Harry Potter films. But I’ve never read about a person that can do it so well.
Did Voldemort do it well? I don’t think JK Rowling mentioned any of that.
Hey! Person that didn’t read this book, this next paragraph contains spoilers…BEWARE…..
Credence seems like a not-important-just-ignore-me-constantly-showing-up-kind-of-character. I just feel that he is misunderstood, not evil.
In the movie, it shows that Senator Shaw picked up a paper that he dropped and said, Go put this in the garbage where you belong. And then, KABOOOOM. Senator Shaw is dead.
Then, Marie Lou threatens him and, BOOM! She is dead.
Lesson: Never annoy random squibs that are harnessing their powers.
Okay, spoilers are done. You can uncover your eyes.
Wait, no I am lying. Just a bit…
Graves was…intimidating. Who’ve guessed that he was BEEP,BEEP,BEEP Grindelwald? But, they do have the same hair style so, should I say I saw it coming?
Spoilers are done, please sit back in your seat and stop running around like an ostrich.
In all, the novel was pretty good. (Oh, and the movie too).
Both of these got a solid 4 stars from moi.
Until next time, I’ll cry so JK Rowling can write yet another fantastic (beasts) novel.
