Présentation de l'éditeur
The Wizarding World journey continues . . .
The powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured in New York with the help of Newt Scamander. But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escapes custody and sets about gathering followers, most of whom are unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.
In an effort to thwart Grindelwald's plans, Albus Dumbledore enlists Newt, his former Hogwarts student, who agrees to help once again, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is the second screenplay in a five-film series to be written by J.K. Rowling, author of the internationally bestselling Harry Potter books. Set in 1927, a few months after the events of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, and moving from New York to London, Paris and even back to Hogwarts, this story of mystery and magic reveals an extraordinary new chapter in the wizarding world. Illustrated with stunning line art from MinaLima with some surprising nods to the Harry Potter stories that will delight fans of both the books and films.

Heroes, humor, sport, coming of age in a truly magical world, family, friendship... The series has all this, and Snape, one of fiction's most debated, loved, and hated characters. Brava, J. K. Rowling, brava.
When the first Fantastic Beasts screenplay came out, I hoped for the same excitement and delight, yet found it lacking. I felt the same about the movie - well executed, a visual spectacle, yet weak in plot, dropping breadcrumbs from the original series to keep rabid fans sated.
Without spoiling this book (#keepthesecrets), I sadly feel the same after reading the second. The book flap promises it to be the second of a five book/movie series, and I'll still buy the rest because, well, reasons... Yet it seems more drawn out and visual spectacle, plodding the plot along slowly.
The fantastic beasts of the title are everywhere, the illustrations and visual layout of the book absolutely lovely. I have no doubt the movie will match the richness of the world and Newt's ever-growing menagerie. The screenplay is written well enough to visualize the scenes quite clearly.
It's been seeded with familiar names like *spoiler* and *spoiler* that don't fit the story, just to bring them into it. There's some definite retconning happening to make this fit into the same world, with the same characters that we're familiar with. Some plot elements feel like they're echoing the original series, and multiple romances thread through the book.
And yet... As much as I feel it's a three star book, it feels a crime to do that to this author, this series. For the world she's created and keeps building on, for every fully realized new creature, every spell, every fan lifted into reading more by these books... I have to go with four stars, no less.
A lovely example of the writing:
Do you know why I admire you, Newt? More, perhaps, than any man I know?
(off NEWT'S surprise)
You don't seek power or popularity. You simply ask, is the thing right in itself? If it is, then I must do it, no matter the cost."
- There is zero character development here. There's a lot of new characters that you learn almost nothing about, and the characters that we do know act very much OUT of character. Not to spoil anything, but if one of my loved ones was almost murdered by a dangerous psycho, there's no way in the world I would ever join the psycho, under any circumstances! I just don't understand where JKR is going with some of these characters. The first movie did a much better job and making us care about the characters, but this one does nothing. I feel no connection to any of them anymore.
- Did JKR really need to retcon like this? A major HP character is now decades older than she was, and her whole timeline and backstory have changed. Another character's family is also apparently retconned, because the twist at the end just makes no sense at all, via what we know about him and his background and family. This is sloppy writing and only changes things to try and make this story work, but it's frustrating and silly, IMO.
- Pretty much nothing actually happens here, story-wise. Yes, they all go to Paris, where......nothing of substance actually occurs. It adds nothing to any of the story lines, except Credence's, and his movement forward is minuscule. It really feels like this is all a big setup for Credence, making him fit into the story. It doesn't feel at all that JKR had this in her mind for 20 years and is just writing it out now. No way. If that were the case, it would flow much better than it does. This feels very contrived.
- None of the character interactions that we wanted to see are here. Everyone is searching for Credence but no one ever connects with him except near the end, and that is minimal. Other characters are just distant from each other, there's none of the connections from the first movie except for Newt and Jacob. Everyone else is completely disconnected.
It's disappointing to have waited 2 years for this. I'm no longer interested in the rest of this series. Eh....at least there's always the HP books to go back to.
