Untitled 58

I stood at the traffic lights this cold autumn morning tucked tightly into my coat waiting for the lights to change. Watching a car come bombing past I thought, I could just step out in front of that. But instead I still waited and the lights changed and I carried on walking my usual walk to work and I said noting about what could of happened so no one knew I might have chosen not to be here anymore. This is because people like me living with depression can’t ever say what it’s really like living with a demon in your head for lets face it, no one really wants to know.

Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them

Book review of J.k Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.

About The Author

J.K Rowling is the author of the bestselling Harry Potter series of seven books. She is also the author of  novel’s for adult readers under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith which are to be adapted for BBC television.

Blurb On The Back

Explorer and Magiczoologist Newt Scamander has just completed a round-the-globe trip in search of the most rare and unusual magical creatures. Arriving in New York, he intends his stay to be just a brief stopover. However, when Newt’s case is misplaced and some of his fantastic beasts escape into the city, it spells trouble for everyone…..

Good Bits About The Book

Forget about the Cursed Child this is so much better and I have realised why, it has nothing to do with Harry Potter. For me the Harry Potter story ended with the seventh book but the world of magic that J.K Rowling invented has so much more potential then just Harry’s story and this book is the begining of it.

The characters are slightly mad but lovable especially Newt, which is exactly how they should be and it is full of all those great little details that I have come to expect from J.K. Rowling’s writing and for me make it all so much more magical.

This book is set in the adult world with adult responsibilities and relationships but with a great big dab of innocnece that is captivating. I am sure there are going to be more books/films in this series as there were several openings including the relashionship between Tina and Newt and I can’t wait for them to happen.

Bad Bits About The Book

It really, really helps if you have seen the film before you have read the book like I have. Obviously this book was written to go along side the film as there is a cast list and the descriptions exactly match the actors. I Probably wouldn’t bother with the book if you are not intending or haven’t watched the film.

My Rating

5 out of 5 stars
