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….

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.

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.
