I didn't have high hope in a screenplay type of the fantastic beast story, but it turns out i was wrong. Emotions and sense of marvel can be felt in each words of the book. And i finished the book moved and curious to see how the movie will set this all up.
First and foremost, Newt is my favorite. Ever.
Secondly: some people think this story doesn’t deserve all the hype it gets. I disagree. Remember how the first Harry Potter book was more of a simple, innocent story that grew into something deeper? I think Fantastic Beasts will do the same—just give it time.
But I’m not saying the first story is boring. In fact, it’s the opposite! We get a glimpse into magic in America, and learn about new creatures. And the characters completely blew me away!
...especially Newt. 😊🧳🦄
P.S: We get a protagonist who’s a Hufflepuff? Yes please!
What’s love and where we find who says it first and foremost...
If anything picks me up long enough to put me down, I cherish the lives that pity no time left to write anything that I’d ever consider to be wronged, or simply left still, anxiously awaiting a true Listener’s lament.
