I wasn't a fan and I wouldn't recommend it. I can appreciate the author trying to continue with the world and give the reader a different aspect. However, with the way it was executed and the characters/plot given in this particular timeline of the wizarding world, I think it took away from the "original series". I didn't like any of the characters in this one and execution of this particular time period wasn't done well. Just my opinion.

Many fans of Rowling were disappointed in this as it is not a book but a screenplay written for the development of the film. Those who follow Rowling on the internet on such sites as Pottermore were aware of the situation behind the book. If, however, the reader begins the book knowing that it is the screenplay for a movie, one will enjoy Rowling's talents being presented in a new format. Screenplays rarely get published for the public, so this ended up being an enjoyable and unique experience. After watching the movie, the reader can relive the film through the pages of this book.

Exactly like the movie with no extras. It was weird reading it in play format, but I really liked it. Can't wait for the next installation!
