    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 hasTo 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 endingOk uick summary Our main character is Sophie She is the oldest of three girls and works in a hat shop Things change when the Witch of the Waste evil bad women puts a spell on her that makes her old She meets the infamous wizard Howl great character and it takes off from there Make sure to pay attention to ALL DETAILS to get the ending Sorry if the review isn't that great It's the first time I'm trying something like this so I'll apologize now for all the confusion I may have caused and the errors in the review

    This book is completely magical and this is how I knowOn the fourth of July we crammed ourselves into our car my husband mother in law two girls and I and drove for over an hour to go see some fireworks There was traffic almost the entire way and I was jammed in the back in between two booster seats which let me tell you – was not comfortable I am a tall person and my knees basically alternated between being suished in between the two front seats or slanted crazily off to one side I was good and addicted to this book at that point and I smuggled it into my tote bag in the tiny hope that might be able to read some along the way However what happened was that as soon as I pulled it out my daughter recognized the title and became very interested I knew it was a mistake to teach her how to readKidding kidding I casually offered to read some of it aloud in the car At first it was just the girls and me as I read about Sophie toiling away day and night in her hat shop losing her father and cursed to a bad fortune Then the conversation between my mother in law and my husband slowly died down as we got to the magical switcheroo that Sophie’s sisters had pulled behind everyone’s backs The radio went off right about when The Witch of The Waste made her grand entrance and by the time we got to our destination much uickly than the clock would suggest my husband was chuckling as Sophie told a solicitous stranger “I’m not your mother young man” like a badass As soon as we got into the car and promptly got stuck in the mad rush to head home my narration services were again reuested We all know the basic plot thanks to watching the Studio Ghibli film approximately 134 times last fall and my oldest daughter was giddy with anticipation for Howl’s tantrum Truly one of the best scenes in both the book and the movieThis book is magical because it managed to distract a four year old a six year old two adults in their thirties a sixty five year old not to mention my knees for several hours in a tiny car on one of the hottest days of the year I love almost everything about this book I love that Diana Wynne Jones thought that a romance between a spoiled shallow drama ueen pretty boy and a feisty ninety year old woman was a great idea and that she completely made it work I loved seeing a nineteen year old Sophie frightened and secluded throw off all of her fears and embrace being a ninety year old woman ready to take on anything that got in her way The writing is simplistic but the dialogue and mystery are downright elegant Maybe this book isn’t perfect – some of the later conflicts seemed a bit manufactured – but I don’t really care This book is going on my favorites shelf forever and ever Dare I say this? I liked it than the movieStop by The Readventurer today where I compare this book to the Studio Ghibli adaptation

    I read this to my daughter Celyn 10 at the time who is too disabled to read books by herselfI had seen some of the anime film version years ago but remembered basically nothing of itI 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 wellThe Welsh connection is well played and the continuing reveals keep everything interestingMy 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

    I came in expecting a novelization of the movie one of my favorites but what I got was even better Good news The atmosphere and characterization is extremely similar to the Studio Ghibli film I absolutely loved practical stubborn Sophie and vain dramatic Howl as well as the overall concept of the story Those were the reasons I wanted to read the book in the first place and luckily it deliveredThe book is simply We get insight into Sophie and Howl's backstories and strong personalities time in different worlds characters factors working against our protagonists and explanation of how magic works in this universe As someone who loves to completely understand fantasy worlds and how they work I loved it Since there were so many factors introduced throughout this novel the ending felt a little rushed I loved it just the sameThe movie is a great movie and the book was a great book They are two very different experiences but work perfectly hand in hand I would recommend it to all fans of the movie and YA fantasy

    I have to say I love Hayao Miyazaki's movie better because come on it's an awesome movie Although Spirited Away is my favorite movie There were some differences in the book but the movie was based off the book and it's not going to be the same All that matters is they both were awesome and the author loved the movie too I absolutely love fantasy worlds that are way out there Happy Reading Mel 🖤🐾🐺

    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 opportunityIt is an amazing and fantastic book The characters are so very different funny uirky and lovable that I was sucked in right away The storyline was intriguing and fun to read The writing was uite good and the world was utterly fascinatingIf you've watched the movie then you needn't worry about being spoiled of the book or ending They are actually nothing alike The movie whilst I really enjoyed it to the original premise and basic character traits and made its own story from thereSophie is hilarious She almost makes me want to be an old lady just so I can be cantankerous and boss people around Howl is funny and sweet as the brilliant yet vain thoughtless mysterious wizard The whole story is great and I highly highly recommend it

    Howl's Moving Castle for whatever reason totally failed to engage me the first time I read it several years ago but it worked so 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 in ways than one She leaves her dead end job in the village and for lack of a better option moves herself without bothering to ask for permission into the oddly mobile castle of the Wizard Howl where magic and cobwebs fill the air Obviously the young wizard needs a housekeeper after all The fire demon in the castle's fireplace mysteriously challenges Sophie to break the contract between himself and Howl and she hopes that maybe Howl and the demon can help break the curse on her as wellThe nature and use of magic in this story were uite creative As a former English major I really enjoyed how John Donne's poem Song Go and catch a falling star was worked into the storyThe plot was occasionally confusing and I wished some things had been explained a little better I also thought that the wrap up at the end was a bit too hasty But overall it was a charming and fun read and it gets bonus points for an unusually high degree of originalityUpping my rating from 3 stars to an enthusiastic 4 Original review On paper I should love this book but it just didn't grab me when I tried to read it about 10 years ago and I ended up skimming half of it I picked it up again at the library the other day and I'm going to give it one shotI was being kind hearted when I gave it 3 stars or was overly swayed by the book's reputation I would be meaner if I were rating it now but I'll wait to do that until I've re read it
