Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling

I chose to read the screenplay after a short illness I faced, to cheer me up. J.K. Rowling did not disappoint! I was not disappointed.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

It was a perfect choice. I had not read a screenplay before, only a play. But the structure did not bother me at all, perhaps in part because I have watched the film.

While reading this screenplay, the movie played in my head again, clearly with all the lovely detail. Even the notes on staging and actor’s specific movements added to the narrative. I felt like I was watching the story unfold on the big screen all over again.

I was immersed back to this world that J.K. Rowling created, and I loved every minute of it.

I am not sure I would read a script of any other movie. But then again, that is why I am a Potterhead.

You can also grab the DVD of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and compare the two!

NEWT: Now there’s absolutely nothing for you to worry about.

JACOB: Tell me – has anyone ever believed you when you told them not to worry?

NEWT: My philosophy is that worrying means you suffer twice.

About J.K. Rowling

Joanne Rowling was born in July 1965 at Yate General Hospital in England and grew up in Chepstow, Gwent where she went to Wyedean Comprehensive. Although she writes under the pen name J.K. Rowling, pronounced like rolling, her name when her first Harry Potter book was published was simply Joanne Rowling. Anticipating that the target audience of young boys might not want to read a book written by a woman, her publishers demanded that she use two initials, rather than her full name. As she had no middle name, she chose K as the second initial of her pen name, from her paternal grandmother Kathleen Ada Bulgen Rowling

As well as an OBE for services to children’s literature, J.K. Rowling is the recipient of numerous awards and honorary degrees including the Prince of Asturias Award for Concord, France’s Légion d’Honneur, and the Hans Christian Andersen Literature Award, and she has been a Commencement Speaker at Harvard University USA. She supports a wide number of charitable causes through her charitable trust Volant, and is the founder of Lumos, a charity working to transform the lives of disadvantaged children.

In 2012, J.K. Rowling published her first novel for adults, The Casual Vacancy (Little Brown), which has now been published in 44 languages.

J.K. Rowling has also written The Cuckoo's Calling (Little Brown), her first crime novel under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, which was published in 2013 and is to be translated into 37 languages.   A second Robert Galbraith novel is due to be published in 2014.
