    Honestly what made me want to read this book was the movie gasp I know, I know shouldn t do that The movie was good I am a fan of Hayo Miyazaki s films and I wasn t disappointed in the book As always much of the book wasn t put into the movie, but it was understandable because I imagine it would be hard to piece together a movie with all the components this story has.To really grasp and understand the book I would suggest that it be read twice I think Since I did watch the movie I wasn t Honestly what made me want to read this book was the movie gasp I know, I know shouldn t do that The movie was good I am a fan of Hayo Miyazaki s films and I wasn t disappointed in the book As always much of the book wasn t put into the movie, but it was understandable because I imagine it would be hard to piece together a movie with all the components this story has.To really grasp and understand the book I would suggest that it be read twice I think Since I did watch the movie I wasn t as shocked at things, but I was so impressed about how the author intertwined all the strands of the story together If you have a chance definitely read the book first The author did an impeccable job of piecing things together to get a wham bam of an ending.Ok quick summary Our main character is Sophie She is the oldest of three gir...

    I read this to my daughter, Celyn 10 , who is too disabled to read books by herself.I had seen some of the anime film version years ago but remembered basically nothing of it.I found the whole thing original and refreshing The point of view character Sophie is engaging and no nonsense with a very capable can do attitude The story moves along at a good pace and the whole moving castle multiple doors thing is a great idea and used well.The Welsh connection is well played, and the continuing I read this to my daughter, Celyn 10 , who is too disabled to read books by herself.I had seen some of the anime film version years ago but remembered basically nothing of it.I found the whole thing original and refreshing The point of view character Sophie is engaging and no nonsense with a very capable can do attitude The story moves along at a good pace and the whole moving castle multiple doors thing is a great idea and used well.The Welsh connection is well played, and the continuing reveals keep everything interesting.My only complaint is that the end seemed rather tortured with so many story lines converging in ways that felt rather unsatisfying hard to believe The view spoiler Miss Angorian hide spoiler part, for example, seemed to come out of left field and made very little sense to me.If I were a touch harsher then that ending would pull this down to a 4 But Celyn loved it I enjoyed reading it And I m in a good mood So 5.I can see why it s a clas...

    For some reason I ve been reading a lot of really great books lately I feel that itch to find something I can tear apart and relish in the destruction However, Howl s Moving Castle didn t provide me with that opportunity.It is an amazing and fantastic book The characters are so very different, funny, quirky and lovable that I was sucked in right away The storyline was intriguing and fun to read The writing was quite good and the worl...

    Howl s Moving Castle, for whatever reason, failed to engage me the first time I read it several years ago, but it worked much better the second time around I really felt for Sophie, the main character, who feels so timid, trapped and hopeless that when she s unfairly hit with a curse that turns her from a young woman into an old crone, it actually frees her inways than one She leaves her dead end job in the village and, for lack of a better option, moves herself without bothering to a Howl s Moving Castle, for whatever reason, failed to engage me the first time I read it several years ago, but it worked much better the second time around I really felt for Sophie, the main character, who fee...
