“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald: The Original Screenplay” By J.K. Rowling Review

At the end of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, 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 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.

This is the second book in the Fantastic Beasts book series which are the original screenplay from the movies. 

In this book we get introduced to French Ministry of Magic and new fantastic animals from the Wizarding World which makes me love this book even more.

The characters here are so fucking awesome, and so well done and presented to us. But that’s just the thing with the Harry Potter universe because every character in this universe are so well written that they feel like real people who I wouldn’t have any problem being best friends with.

The fact that we keep learning more and more about Newt Scamander, Jacob Kowalski and Gellert Grindelwald makes me love this book and this series so much more. And the more I read and learn more about the trio I just can’t help it but love them more and more. And I find myself relating more and more to Newt Scamander after watching and reading the Fantastic Beasts series. 

I gotta be honest and confess that Gellert Grindelwald might be on my top ranking of favourite characters from Harry Potter universe along side Severus Snape. I think that Severus Snape and Gellert Grindelwald are both underrated characters in the Wizarding world. It might be an unpopular opinion but now you know it.

The twist with Credence is so good, that it made me give more points to this book and the whole series. But of course you could see the twist before it happened when the tale with Phoenix was mentioned. 

The writing is the original screenplay so I’m not gonna talk about it because I’m not a screen writer and I don’t know how to review them. 

The plot was fucking awesome, and it was sort of like being a part of this story because you were following the characters so well. 

There are couple of inconsistencies in this book and the whole Fantastic Beasts series but I love the Wizarding wording so of course it won’t bring it down for me. 

And we finally get some scenes from Hogwarts while Dumbledore was still a professor and not the headmaster. And the fact that we learn more about Dumbledore is just brilliant. 

I give this book 5 / 5

“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay” By by J.K. Rowling Review

When Magizoologist Newt Scamander arrives in New York, he intends his stay to be just a brief stopover. However, when his magical case is misplaced and some of Newt’s fantastic beasts escape, it spells trouble for everyone. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them marks the screenwriting debut of J.K. Rowling, author of the beloved and internationally bestselling Harry Potter books. Featuring a cast of remarkable characters, this is epic, adventure-packed storytelling at its very best.

We been waiting for a long time for new Harry Potter books and finally they are here. Of course this is a screenplay of the movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them but it was still super fun to read it. Ive watched the movie when it first came out and since that time I forgot things which have happened in it and this book was a good reminder of what have happened. 

This book was super fun to read and it was super interesting and enjoyable as well. I couldn’t stop reading it because it was so interesting and so fun to read it.

Of course we can’t talk much about the writing style and the way it was written because it is a screenplay book of a movie so there are some limitations on how this book can be written. But I’ve still enjoyed it and I had fun reading it.

This book as well as the movie brings the Harry Potter universe to more adult level than the original 7 books of the Harry Potter series. And I loved it. And the fact that we learn more about characters and events before Harry Potter have been born brings more to universe and it makes it feel more real. 

The characters here or so brilliant and awesome. We learn more about important characters in the Harry Potter universe like Newt Scamander, Credence Barebone, Gellert Grindelwald and many more. By learning more about the characters the Harry Potter world becomes so much real and so much interesting.

The fact that the Harry Potter world expends and grows with the readers makes this series so unique.

The friendship between Newt Scamander and Jacob Kowalski reminds me of the friendship between Ron and Harry but also in a way the friendship between Newt and Jacob is unique because as we all know Newt is a wizard and Jacob is a mugle.

The fact that we get introduced to more creatures from the Harry Potter world really makes this books as well as the movie so much more unique because it really shows us that the wizarding world is so much bigger than we thought when the first Harry Potter book came out.

I give this book 5 / 5

“Werewolf” By Ed And Lorraine Warren Review

The legend of the werewolf is as old as man himself. From Ed and Lorraine Warren, the world’s most famous demonologists, comes perhaps their most incredible and horrifying case: the true story of William Ramsey, whose bizarre seizures terrified the English town of Southend-on-Sea. Believing Ramsey to be a victim of demonic possession, the Warrens arranged for the rite of exorcism to be performed. Not since the exorcist shocked the nation has there been such a such a horrifying account of a supernatural battle between good and evil within the soul of one human. 

So this was book written by none other than Ed and Lorraine Warren. Frankly I didn’t know about this case until I picked up this book. Ive watched all the movies in the Ed and Lorraine Warren Cinematic Universe and this book is a nice little additional resource to the cinematic universe of Ed and Lorraine Warren.

Ive mention it before on this website that I’m a huge skeptic so I don’t believe that the stuff which is written in this book is real and that it happen. I just treated it like a good horror story as it should be treated.

Im gonna believe in demons, ghosts etc when I see them with my own eyes without being under the influence of anything. Until then the Cinematic Universe of Ed and Lorraine Warren will just be for me good horror stories for horror movies.

The writing style in this one was super incredible, it really shows that Ed and Lorraine Warren were good writers and good story tellers if you will. 

When it comes to the highlight of this book which was the exorcism of William Ramsey then it was super short which really disappointed me because it could have been longer. 

However when it comes to William Ramsey then he felt more like he had schizophrenia not that he was possessed by a animal spirit or whatever you want to call it.

I give this book 2 / 5

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” By J.K. Rowling Review

It’s no longer safe for Harry at Hogwarts, so he and his best friends, Ron and Hermione, are on the run. Professor Dumbledore has given them clues about what they need to do to defeat the dark wizard, Lord Voldemort, once and for all, but it’s up to them to figure out what these hints and suggestions really mean. Their cross-country odyssey has them searching desperately for the answers, while evading capture or death at every turn. At the same time, their friendship, fortitude, and sense of right and wrong are tested in ways they never could have imagined. The ultimate battle between good and evil that closes out this final chapter of the epic series takes place where Harry’s Wizarding life began: at Hogwarts. The satisfying conclusion offers shocking last-minute twists, incredible acts of courage, powerful new forms of magic, and the resolution of many mysteries. Above all, this intense, cathartic book serves as a clear statement of the message at the heart of the Harry Potter series: that choice matters much more than destiny, and that love will always triumph over death

And yet again we are talking about an amazing Harry Potter book and it really hurts to say that this is the last book in the series. 

This book gave the series the ending which it deserved. Of course the ending is said because there are some very popular characters among the fans of this series who die. But this book really gives the the satisfaction that it is a fucking good end to a series which is so amazing as it possible gets. 

And the fact that we learn much more about Severus Snape in this book was what I’ve been waiting for since the first book in this series. And by learning more about him we see that he had much more impact on the whole series than we first thought. Which really made my whole day because as some of you might know he is my all time favourite character from the whole series. 

We also learned more about Dumbledore which was the best thing which possibly could happen because we learned that Dumbledore wasn’t really the all-good character and it changed my opinion about him. I went from liking him to just being “fuck this guy”. And it was because he was raising Harry Potter and teaching him to just wanting to kill him at the proper moment for the greater good. No one in their right mind would do that because how could you do that to a 17 year old child?

The writing style is really the best because as you read the book you can see everything which is described in this book in your head. Which really takes a brilliant author to make it happen. 

In this book there is a much more action than it was in the previous books in this series which I truly liked because you really couldn’t stop reading and once you started to read you just will not be able to stop. 

The only thing which pissed me off in this book was that some of the characters which I truly loved have been killed off. And that’s the only thing which I didn’t like about this book. 

After reading this book I’m kind of bipolar on it because im sad that the series is done but at the same time I’m glad that it is the last book because it was an amazing adding to Harry Potter series. 

I give this book 5 / 5 

“King Lear” By William Shakespeare Review

The play tells us about families struggling between greed and cruelty, on the one hand, and support and consolation, on the other. Emotions are extreme, magnified to gigantic proportions. We also see old age portrayed in all its vulnerability, pride, and, perhaps, wisdom—one reason this most devastating of Shakespeare’s tragedies is also perhaps his most moving.

So this one was my first play or anything written by William Shakespeare. And I gotta be honest here and say that I wasn’t a fan of this one. I didn’t like it so much that I DNF-ed it at the end because I just couldn’t finish it.

The writing style was really old English which made it hard to understand for someone like me who have English as their third language. 

I love the old English when it comes to horror tales but not when it comes to the plays but that’s just my opinion. 

The plot but was overall good but it didn’t speak to me so this might explain the low rating and why I DNF-ed it at the end. 

I give this play 1 / 5

“Passion” by Louise Bagshawe Review

A failed marriage between Melissa Elmett and Will Hyde did a lot of damage. She was too young, he was hurt when she left him. Years later, Melissa becomes the target for a kidnap plot, a consequence of her father’s ground-breaking energy-saving invention, and Will is the only man who can protect her. Now they’re on the run, thrown together again by the pursuit of vengeance, will their passion for each other reignite?

This book is so confusing because the chapters jump all over the timeline of the book. And there is nothing to indicate if there is past or present you just have to take the hints and determine if it is past or present. I have no problem with multiple timelines in a story, I love it when it is clear like in “IT” by Stephen King if it is past or present. 

The beginning was okay for the most part but the moment when the main characters began to be chased around town by professional hitman who have been doing the job for years and for whatever reason that hitman just forgets everything which she learned and just starts to chase the main character around like Leatherface. At that point I just couldn’t read on because this book became so insufferable. 

The characters here are okay for the most part. The male main character is okay but he acts like the stereotypical rich guy who is dating all the super models, drives the most expensive cars, live in the best apartment in New York City and just doesn’t give a shit about anyone else but himself. When it comes to the female main character is so confusing and child like. Because she dated the male main character in college and she left him and ever since she left him she is like “I wish that I didn’t leave him but I guess I’m gonna marry the guy who reminds me of my father just because I’m in my 30s and I want kids”. I really didn’t care about any of the characters in this book because they were so fucking unrelatable and they felt like cartoons which may created to make a parody a thriller book or movie. Think about all the stereotypical stupid decisions you can make while a hitman is after you and you will have the main female character.

The writing style was also like super boring and confusing. Because in one paragraph you will be at the female main character’s work while she is working and in the next at a dinner 2 weeks later. The writing in this book is on the level with grade school children who are learning how to write something which will stick together. 

The twist in this book were so god damn obvious that you could predict them even before they have happened. 

The plot here was bad as well, because it was just all over the place and I just could keep up with it. 

I give this book 1 / 5

“The One Plus One” By Jojo Moyes Review

One single mum. With two jobs and two children, Jess Thomas does her best day after day. But it’s hard on your own. And sometimes you take risks you shouldn’t. Because you have to. One chaotic family Jess’s gifted, quirky daughter Tanzie is brilliant with numbers, but without a helping hand she’ll never get the chance to shine. And Nicky, Jess’s teenage stepson, can’t fight the bullies alone.

I gotta admit that I ended up DNF-ing this book because I just couldn’t do it. I couldn’t finish it. 

This book is very, very slow in action . This book takes ages for even the smallest action to happen. Of course there were something happening here and there like the son being beaten up, the daughter getting into a school for gifted kids but the running theme was “we are poor so we can’t do anything”. It was so insufferable, and the mother in this book was like “oh, my husband left us but I can’t move on and I need to wait for him to come and help us because we are poor.” I hate people like this even fictional characters because life doesn’t stop when someone leaves you.

The characters in this book are so boring and unrelatable as it possible can be. You can pretty much summaries all of the characters with a single word. And all the characters in this book seems to not have a brain and not be able to make good decisions. The mother doesn’t have a licenses but still takes the kids for a road trip to Scotland like there won’t be any police on the roads or any other people on the roads. The guy which she falls in love with is a dick who is like “I want that girl to be gone so I’m gonna sabotage my own company and put myself into a federal investigations”. Every character in this book makes worse decisions than a 6 year old. 

The plot here is pretty good, and it is the only good thing with this book. But the way the plot was presented to us is just the worst possible story telling. Even a high school student could have written this book better. The plot would be so much better if the author didn’t make it so god damn slow and boring. The author chooses to focus this book on everything else than the main topic in this book which really pissed me off. I need to admit that the plot was very predictable and super unbelievable because of the characters and the way it was written. 

I was so disappointed with this book because a lots of people on the internet talks about this book like it is the best thing ever but its the opposite of it. And I really needed to force myself to read this book and when I came to page 320 I just couldn’t do it anymore.  

The whole story lacks everything like depth, excitement, color and pretty much any sense of real life. And the whole story is so depressing because of the main character who is the mother who is trying to make the ends meet but don’t do anything about it and instead so keeps working in the same trashy jobs which gives her very little money. 

The writing style is the worst writing I’ve seen so far. The writing goes on forever on things which aren’t mentioned on the next page, it’s like the story forgets about had happened in the previous chapter and on the previous page. 

I give this book 1 / 5

“Why We Want You To Be Rich: Two Men, One Message” By Donald J. Trump And Robert T. Kiyosaki Review

The world is facing many challenges and one of them is financial. The entitlement mentality is epidemic, creating people who expect their countries, employers, or families to take care of them. Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki, both successful businessmen, are natural teachers and have joined forces to address these challenges. They believe you cannot solve money problems with money. You can only solve money problems with financial education. Trump and Kiyosaki want to teach you to be rich.

I gotta say that this book disappointed me because I’ve had high expectations for this one.  Ive read Robert T. Kiyosaki’s books in the past and I’ve read  Donald J. Trump’s books in the past and I’ve liked theirs books so that’s why I’ve had high expectations for this one which it didn’t live up to.

To be honest here this book repeats the same things which are mentioned in “Rich Dad Poor Dad” by Robert T. Kiyosaki and “Trump: The Art of the Deal” By Donald J. Trump. This book just felt like an extended version of these two books put together without adding anything new.

This book also repeats the same things over and over again. And it seems like Robert T. Kiyosaki is trying to flex his accomplishments in this book by constantly saying how many copies of “Rich Dad Poor Dad” he had sold, that he created board game and that he got to work and meet Donald J Trump. These two things really annoyed me a lot.

The writing style here was the best thing in this book because it is interesting and enjoyable. The writing style to Robert T. Kiyosaki really shows that he is an amazing story teller if nothing more. But when it comes to the writing style to Donald J Trump then all he really did in this book was to agree with what Robert T. Kiyosaki have written in the book without actually adding anything useful expect of the fact that he was bragging about how dope his life is.

However this book will be amazing for you, if you haven’t read “Rich Dad Poor Dad” by Robert T. Kiyosaki and “Trump: The Art of the Deal” By Donald J. Trump before. 

I give this book 2 / 5

“The Invisible Man” By H.G. Wells Review

The story concerns the life and death of a scientist named Griffin who has gone mad. Having learned how to make himself invisible, Griffin begins to use his invisibility for nefarious purposes, including murder.

I had high expectations for this one, and yet again a book didn’t live up to these expectations which is sad.

This book had the potential to be much better than it actually was but it didn’t use that potential which it could have. Which is sad to see. 

The writing style in this book was amazing but it sometimes became too hard to understand which really throw me away sometimes and really took the wind and fun away from it. 

The way the story was told in was just super boring and I really had hard time focusing on this story. Which is sad because if H.G Wells have chosen a little bit different angle from which he should tell the story from, then this book could have killed it and got the full score everywhere. 

What I’m trying to say here is that this book has a very interesting premise but not such interesting execution.

When the main character was explaining how he became invisible make it seem like invisibility is a very easy thing to achieve. 

I give this book 2 / 5

“Little Deaths” By Emma Flint Review

It’s 1965 in a tight-knit working-class neighborhood in Queens, New York, and Ruth Malone – a single mother who works long hours as a cocktail waitress – wakes to discover her two small children, Frankie Jr. and Cindy, have gone missing. Later that day, Cindy’s body is found in a derelict lot a half mile from her home, strangled. Ten days later, Frankie Jr.’s decomposing body is found. Immediately, all fingers point to Ruth. 

If you been around this website before you would have noticed that I’m a huge fan of Mystery and Thriller books which this book is. But this one didn’t go well with me for whatever reason.

One of my main problems with this book is that the action was too slow. And my second main problem with this book is that the book focuses too much on Ruth being a mistress than Ruth being a mother who’s kids vanished and was later found dead. I picked up this book to read about the mysterious vanishing of someone and not about the main character having drama with her ex husband, going out and party every night  and have sex with different man. Im not into that, let me say that.

I want to sinister vibe, I want the eerie vibe, I want the mystery, I want the investigation but I don’t want to read about the main character having sex with different man and partying while her kids have been murdered and the police doing very bad investigation in the case.

For me the side problems were taking too much space and they were taking our focus onto them and making us sort of look at the murder of two children as a side problem. 

The writing style however was the best part of this book because it really gave the vibe of New York in 1960s. I liked that.

Its important for me to mention this that I’ve DNF-ed this book like 120 pages in because of the points I’ve mentioned above.

I give this point 1 / 5
