    About Author

    1. J.K. Rowling says:
      See also Robert GalbraithAlthough 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 She calls herself Jo and has said, No one ever called me Joanne when I was young, unless they were angry Following her marriage, she has sometimes used the name Joanne Murray when conducting personal business During the Leveson Inquiry she gave evidence under the name of Joanne Kathleen Rowling In a 2012 interview, Rowling noted that she no longer cared that people pronounced her name incorrectly.Rowling was born to Peter James Rowling, a Rolls Royce aircraft engineer, and Anne Rowling n e Volant , on 31 July 1965 in Yate, Gloucestershire, England, 10 miles 16 km northeast of Bristol Her mother Anne was half French and half Scottish Her parents first met on a train departing from King s Cross Station bound for Arbroath in 1964 They married on 14 March 1965 Her mother s maternal grandfather, Dugald Campbell, was born in Lamlash on the Isle of Arran Her mother s paternal grandfather, Louis Volant, was awarded the Croix de Guerre for exceptional bravery in defending the village of Courcelles le Comte during the First World War.Rowling s sister Dianne was born at their home when Rowling was 23 months old The family moved to the nearby village Winterbourne when Rowling was four She attended St Michael s Primary School, a school founded by abolitionist William Wilberforce and education reformer Hannah More Her headmaster at St Michael s, Alfred Dunn, has been suggested as the inspiration for the Harry Potter headmaster Albus Dumbledore.As a child, Rowling often wrote fantasy stories, which she would usually then read to her sister She recalls that I can still remember me telling her a story in which she fell down a rabbit hole and was fed strawberries by the rabbit family inside it Certainly the first story I ever wrote down when I was five or six was about a rabbit called Rabbit He got the measles and was visited by his friends, including a giant bee called Miss Bee At the age of nine, Rowling moved to Church Cottage in the Gloucestershire village of Tutshill, close to Chepstow, Wales When she was a young teenager, her great aunt, who Rowling said taught classics and approved of a thirst for knowledge, even of a questionable kind, gave her a very old copy of Jessica Mitford s autobiography, Hons and Rebels Mitford became Rowling s heroine, and Rowling subsequently read all of her books.Rowling has said of her teenage years, in an interview with The New Yorker, I wasn t particularly happy I think it s a dreadful time of life She had a difficult homelife her mother was ill and she had a difficult relationship with her father she is no longer on speaking terms with him She attended secondary school at Wyedean School and College, where her mother had worked as a technician in the science department Rowling said of her adolescence, Hermione a bookish, know it all Harry Potter character is loosely based on me She s a caricature of me when I was eleven, which I m not particularly proud of Steve Eddy, who taught Rowling English when she first arrived, remembers her as not exceptional but one of a group of girls who were bright, and quite good at English Sean Harris, her best friend in the Upper Sixth owned a turquoise Ford Anglia, which she says inspired the one in her books.

      Will we die, just a little I finally read this I mean, I ve seen it twice so far and the script is exactly the same as the film minus the actors, effects, pictures, etc , but I 100% enjoyed the experience It is just amazing to dive into this old new world, too feel all those feelings again, to fall in love with its characters, to be able to see and know Especially after the disappointment of the Cursed Child where the script sucked, but the play was mindblowing.About the film I can not wait to [...]

      After the travesty known asHarry Potter and The Cursed Child,I really needed this adventure.So here are some reasons why it succeeded whereThe Cursed Child failed 1 It s actually funThe Cursed Child is all so very serious Granted, Harry s life has some pretty dark moments, though it always foregrounded by this idea of friendship and love The Cursed child just felt depressing This carries with it all the whimsical humour of the earlier Harry Potter books before things became dark and serious The [...]

      I loved this so much 3 And the book itself was one big work of art Any word on if the next movie scripts will be released as a book as well The hardcover is a bit on the expensive side, but Book Depository has it going for 50% off right now in some countries

      Newt is obviously meant to be my husband and I m kind of obsessed with him and everything about this movie screenplay.

      I slept on it I didn t want to write my review right away because I wanted to see if my feelings would calm down And they did A little Otherwise I still feel a longing for , some kind of happy sadness yes, I ve gone completely insane.About 15 minutes after finishing the screenplay, still struggling to control myself, I went to my husband and told him that I really need a physical copy And not only do I need it, but I want it And it has to be in English because I don t want any altering to it.I s [...]

      Because I like you Because you re my friend and I ll never forget how you helped me, Jacob First of all, I really loved the design of this book, especially when you just finished those chapters and saw the pictures of each fantastic beast I couldn t stop myself from rubbing the cover all the time when I held this book in my hands, it was gorgeous and shining as if I was staring at a piece of art, not a book.Tell me has anyone ever believed you when you told them not to worry This is definitely a [...]

    11. Darth J says:
      I don t care that this is just a script, as withThe Cursed Child , because I need to know about this expansive universe.We know so little of the American school, Ilvermorny.But, like others, I hope we are given an in depth view of it as much as Hogwarts So far, all we really have to go on are the leaked house animals

    12. Mansuriah Hassan says:
      I am a HUGE fan of Harry Potter Even though Harry is not in this story but that doesn t matter because the magic is still beautiful There are great new characters, story, and of course the fantastic beasts themselves This is a beautifully published hardback on very nice matte paper with wonderful whimsical line drawings throughout the book The blue and gold embossed dust jacket is a work of art in itself For anyone who loves books, this book is a keeper.This is a screenplay so don t assume it s [...]

      Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is the screenplay for the movie I couldn t find a single difference from the movie I watched yesterday It was such a detailed script which invited you to follow the storyline closely The characters are JK Rowling fantastic and so is the storyline I don t have much else to say, about the characters or the plot, I m just so in love with this 1926 spin off of the Harry Potter world A definite must read if you love the Harry Potter series.

    15. Bil says:
      A fantastic addition to the Harry Potter universe The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them screenplay welcomes you to a new era of magic.Set in the 1920s at the heart of the wizarding community of New York, J K Rowling crafted a refreshing tale with a mature set of characters yet a lighthearted narrative.Having watched the film first, I can say that it had an amazing cast In my opinion, the characters were the strongest element of the script All of them were beautifully written From our new [...]

      Curioso, curiosoLa primera incursi n de Rowling en el mundo del guion es cuanto menos satisfactoria Los detalles aqu plasmados respecto a los plasmados en la pel cula no var an tanto como cab a esperar, pero como fan de Rowling se aprecian otras cosas que quiz es cierto que en el filme no son tan obvias.Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them The Original Screenplay es un libro que creo que debe ser el primero de muchos, es decir, que espero que contin en publicando los guiones del resto de pel [...]

    17. emma says:
      Can you IMAGINE being so mind numbingly in demand that you re offered money to publish a screenplay you were already paid to write, the screenplay for a movie off which you will still profit, a movie which is inspired by a book you already wrote, a book which is actually just a textbook you mentioned in a series that you already completed, a series that has sold hundreds of millions of copies and spawned its own billion dollar world of movies There is straight up no reason for JK Rowling to not [...]

      Please don t hurt my creatures they are not dangerous Newt ScamanderI practiced the Book Before Movie Policy in my approach to this beautiful screenplay Why Because there s just something about the feeling of seeing words come to life before your very eyes I plan to watch the movie as soon as it s legally released online.I m so happy that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was tons better than Harry Potter and the Cursed Child This is probably because this screenplay was solely written by L [...]

    21. Lauren says:
      I absolutely loved this book It was amazing and it was the perfect way to get another taste of the wizarding world I don t even know where to start This book is based in the 1920s which is many many years before the time of Harry Potter It was also based in America Both these things gave us an insight into how everything was many years before and in a different country The entire storyline was perfect and I wish that it was a proper book with detail I watched the movie before the book and to be [...]

      Por una parte am la edici n que saco salamandra, tapa dura, cada p gina con detalles que van desde ilustraciones hasta la tipograf a.Lo que no me gusta,y aclaro es una queja por detalles que he visto en librerias mexicanas es el incremento brutal de precio que ltimamente tienen los libros no s lo de Salamandra, lo he notado en varias, sin embargo Salamandra se est saltando la barda con lo absurdo de subir de 20 hasta casi 100 a las ediciones de Harry Potter, y si parece m s una critica social, e [...]

      I m mildly surprised to find out that Grindelwald s scene is also goosebump inducing even on print I love this screenplay.

    25. Taylor Knight says:
      Even though I was super excited about the Fantastic Beasts movie, I also was a bit hesitant It s not a secret that I loathed The Cursed Child and I had lost a bit of faith in the wizarding world.However, Fantastic Beasts both the movie and screenplay reminded me of why I love J.K Rowling s wizarding world so much I was very excited to see the wizarding community in America and to see the differences between the two cultures I loved being able to see the wizarding community in a way that we never [...]
