Description

A set textbook at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry since publication, Newt Scamander's masterpiece has entertained wizarding families through the generations. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is an indispensable introduction to the magical beasts of the wizarding world. 

Scamander's years of travel and research have created a tome of unparalleled importance. Some of the beasts will be familiar to readers of the Harry Potter books – the Hippogriff, the Basilisk, the Hungarian Horntail... others will surprise even the most ardent amateur Magizoologist. 

Narrated by Eddie Redmayne, this is the first audio book edition of Scamander's textbook ever to be released. Having starred as Newt Scamander himself in the movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, who better to narrate this Hogwarts Library book from one of the wizarding world's most famous Magizoologists? Eddie's film credits include The Danish Girl, My Week with Marilyn, Les Misérables and The Theory of Everything, for which he won a Golden Globe, an Academy Award and a BAFTA Award for Best Actor. 

Dip in to discover the curious habits of magical beasts across five continents….

whoops

For some reason I thought that this was an actual story. Guess I should have read the description a little bit more completely. It's probably fun to sit with your kids and look through the different creatures, but doesn't make for a very interesting audible experience

Better as a physical book

I knew it would be written like a guide book, but it just wasn't as engaging as I'd hoped it would be.

Absolutely Pointless

Would you try another book from J.K. Rowling and Newt Scamander and/or Eddie Redmayne?

Yes

What was most disappointing about J.K. Rowling and Newt Scamander ’s story?

The whole book. I can't believe someone thought it was worth the time to make an audiobook out of an encyclopedia of magical creatures.

What does Eddie Redmayne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He is a good narrator.

This book is very pleasing despite my hesitation to order it. Easy short listen and will enhance your beastly knowledge.

There isn't much story here... but that narrator!

I honestly have never wanted to read this book nor purchase any version. I do have the screenplay because I mean the cover is beautiful! But besides that, it does not call my attention fully.

However, I saw that Audible published this title a few months ago and I heard the preview... and oh my god! This is just one of the best narrations and productions I have heard in my life. There is nothing better than read, but when you listen a book that is full of special effects and sounds of dragons, pixies, fairies, merpeople, and other fantastic beasts that you can come up with... it is just another story and another world!

A new twist on a childhood favorite!

I enjoyed the original Fantastic Beasts textbook as a child and also am madly in love with Eddie Redmayne and thought he made the perfect Newt Scamander in the film adaptation so this updated audiobook was an immediate must-have. While it isn't really much of a story due to the textbook description format, it was still a delightfully entertaining quick listen. It included some new creatures that weren't in the original book and also had some updated musings from the "author" that I can only hope are foreshadowing for the new movies. #FairytaleTwists #UnlikelyHero #Magical #Nostalgic #Animal #tagsgiving #sweepstakes

Good Narrator, No story. Its only informative.

It was a good book if your someone that wanted to learn more about the creatures in the Harry Potter world, however it isnt the same experience you get when you read the Harry potter books. I was expecting the book to be like the movie, to have a story behind it. It was very well narrated tho.

There is no story just a list of creatures

Probably my fault for not listening to the sample I thought it was the story of the new feature film it is not it's just a simple list of beasts nothing more. Unless you a huge Harry Potter head it's not worth your time.

bad recording

The sound kept cutting in and out. I thought it would interest me but to be honest I fell asleep listening to it.

Really like it

I really loved the movie and would love to have an audiobook about this story too. I still liked learning more about the beasts. If you're a Harry Potter fan this is a must have.

Interesting backgroundstories, short entries

There is some background info into the Harry Potter world which I enjoyed very much. But to be honest I wished to learn more about each beast and hoped for entries like in a school text book. I found the descriptions of the magical beast are short or very short. It is like dictionary entries. There are only a couple with a story that is a bit longer.

The sound recording leaves something to be desired.
I was listening on Taotronic Wireless Head phones via the audible mobile app.

There is some noise at the end of each word, it sounds a bit like WWII broadcasts, not sure whether that is intended. Might also be my equippment. The notes sound even more like it, which makes me wonder about it being intentionally.

There are sound effects, something unusual for my experience with Audiobooks. I enjoyed some and others confused me when there was an animal noise e.g. that is simutaneusly described differently.

Fantastic Beasts

Wenn auch kurz, war es doch ein sehr schönes Hörbuch, von Eddie wunderbar eingesprochen. Ich musste doch ab und an sehr schmunseln. Für Potterheads, doch ein Muss.

A must have for all Potterheads

It gives you deeper insight, it brings light and it's read by Newt himself... In other words: I love it... and that's all there is to say.

Tatsächlich ein Lexikon

Ich hatte eine Geschichte erwartet, allerdings ist es ein - wohlgemerkt witziges - Lexikon der Fabelwesen, mit ein paar Randbemerkung. Nett zu hören, aber eben nicht besonders spannend.

Great Audiobook!

I really liked it. I mean, it's "just" an audiobook about all the different kinds of beasts in the Harry Potter Universe, but it's still very interesting. You could really imagine the different creatures in your head. I like Eddie Redmaynes voice so it's very comfortable to listen to, really recommend it id you just need something to listen to for a short time.

Kurzweilig, amüsant und für einen guten Zweck

Eddie Redmayne als Newt Scamander liest informativ und doch mit Esprit. Das Buch ist kein "klassischer Rowlings", ist leicht und "fluffig", witzig auch für jeden Muggel und durchaus hilfreich, da ich mir nun überlege, mir einen tatsächlich einen Puffskein anzuschaffen.

Enttäuschendes Hör-Lexikon

Erwartet habe ich ein Hörbuchversion des gleichnamigen Filmes. Leider habe ich nicht auf die verdächtig kurze Laufzeit geachtet. Bekommen habe ich eine Reihe von Lexikoneinträgen, die zwar stellenweise amüsant, aber kein volles Guthaben wert waren.
