I got it at the store the other day .... and sort of stayed up and finished it by that evening. :wub:

It's WONDERFUL! I'm so glad to have read it. I intend to see the movie, of course. But reading the play -- I can see it (peopled by the folks in the movie) -- and catch the subtleties that I might miss while watching the movie!

Definitely late to this topic, buuuuut meh...when has that ever stopped me? XD

I almost bought this the second it came out! I had to wait because my sister was buying it for me for Christmas, but I also bought her a copy, so I just read hers. >_>

It's so great! I've seen the movie about 8 times (3 times in theaters and another 5 times online >___>) so far, and I love watching the movie while I also have the screenplay in my lap. It's so perfect; I'm so in love with all of it, ha.

Goodreads does a polling for the 'Best Books' each year.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay was voted Best Fantasy! click

It beat out several other great books, including Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs, Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman and Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson. (No, I do not understand how any of these books go into 'Fantasy' but oh well?)

Yay for Fantastic Beasts! \o/

Wooo! Go Fantastic Beasts! I loved the movie, and although I don't own the screenplay I read it in the bookshop. Amazing. I love it.
