Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: Read by Eddie Redmayne
The story is another one from the magical world of J.K Rowling. It shares many of the same characters which we know from the famous, The Ultimate Harry Potter and Philosophy Hogwarts for Muggles, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and others in the series depicts the magical world J.K Rowling has created. The beasts described are mostly mythical or the creation of writer’s own imagination. The narration by Eddie Redmayne has made it more interesting for the kids also. The listener enjoys his talent of as a narrator who makes each character alive in our mind through his powerful dialogue delivery.
This is perhaps one like one of other short stories from Hogwarts. The story no doubts explain the fantastic beats in detail even more descriptive than the Greek mythology as many people say but this is also the problem in the story to some extent. Despite the fact that the whole thing is wonderfully tailored the plot is not given much of an importance in the whole tail. The description of the beast world is preferred over the display of the story. Still the story is nice for listening to it on the weekend with the family members especially the kids with which after a long time we can again enter the world of Hogwarts that we once traveled for a long time with Harry Potter.
The associations of these creatures with Harry Potter also make over belief strong on these magical creatures though they do not exist in the real world. This book is entertaining especially for those who like to have a lot of information about beats. This is the first book of Rowling in which he has described these self-created beasts in detail.
