Fantastic Beasts, a rare miss?

November 25, 2016 | By | Reply More

There’s an interesting article over on the Guardian newspaper at https://www.theguardian.com/books/2016/nov/25/jk-rowling-fantastic-beasts-screenplay which can basically be summed up as “JK Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts sucks as a book because it’s really a screenplay.”

Or slightly more eloquently, as the Guardian writes, “JK Rowling’s little dictionary of animals has spawned a huge film franchise, with all the attendant merchandise. But with the movie in cinemas worldwide, who wants to read a screenplay?”

This was certainly the reaction among the members of the Hunt clan who read this, but I wondering if that’s being unfair, or perhaps just accurate – J.K. Rowling’s publisher trying to cash in on the movie without the work of commissioning a novelisation?
