The characters are vived, enchanting, vulnerable and relatable. There is a level of gentle maturity present in this series that was absent in the HP series.
If you loved the movie I highly recommend the screenplay!

While the story is excellent, I was a little disappointed to find that this is the exact script of the film. This isn't an issue if that's what you're looking for, but I was personally hoping that there would be some extra tidbits that weren't shot. I guess they're saving them for the delete scenes on the DVD.
Naturally, you miss out on something by reading the script - namely the performance put in by the wonderful actors and the brilliant special effects. However, you do gain the benefit of the stage directions which gave me a new reading on certain scenes, picking up on character motivation (especially for the likes of Credence and Queenie) that I don't think came across so well in the film. In this, I'm now curious to watch the film again to see how my new understanding affects the viewing.
There is little point in reading this if you didn't enjoy the film or the universe in which it's set. However, for Rowling's fans, it's a must buy. The book itself is lovely, with its soft cover and stylised illustrations of the beasts, and is a great addition to any collection.
I love Pickett the Bowtruckle - he's the best!
