Opinion

From Library Staff

This screenplay of the film is a great opportunity to read the dialogue and action of the film. It is really cool opportunity to explore The Crimes of Grindewald without the film.

This book was quite disappointing because it was mostly boring and hard to follow at times due to the fact that it it is a script. i had higher expectations, but Rowling was creative with it, revealing the story of Grindelwald's era which I was eager to know before reading this book.

Not a big fan of the screen play style but good story. Rowling is talented. Look forward to the movie.

The book barely qualifies as Fantastic Beasts. Sure Scamander is involved again, and he brought his Nifflers, and we get to see his house and he runs into two or three more creatures, but 90% of the movie is Grindelwald and his proto-Death Eaters plotting to kidnap Credence and brainwash other wizards into joining them. If you're going to focus on world building and showing this story, fine, but be a little more honest with your advertising and your audience.

Aside from that, decent job. Personally, I was on the fence with Johnny Depp playing Grindelwald, but Crimes of Grindelwald sold me on the character. The screenplay is an admirable rendition of the movie, with the only real detractor being a lack of description regarding scenes. Some are well described, others only just, and others yet are barely there.

Rather disappointing. 270+ pages with intricate page borders and dividers could easily have been collapsed into a more readable 175 page screenplay. Or, better, added to in order to create a more coherent experience for the reader. The author names many places where scenes are staged yet one has no sense of what they look like nor why the scene takes place there. Altogether a disappointing, unsatisfying read. I may have to watch the movie to understand the book. And that NEVER happens to me!

Violence: It can be a bit violent it wasn't like over the top blood everywhere kind of thing though. So yah a bit violent I definitely would not bring my four year old cousin Thalia.
