What a creation! I fell for Howl like I fell for no one else. He is a model of egotism, narcissism, stubbornness, and just plain attractiveness. How Jones does it this time (she certainly doesn't do it in her other books that I've read) I don't know! Howl is a person that must be brought to cinematic life sometime. Live-action. ( )

I loved this fun fairy/tale happy ending story. The characters, the world it all just sang to me. I have had this on my TBR for over 2 years waiting for a challenge I could use it in, so glad it happened when I needed a good "pick-me-up" read.

I really like how Jones twisted things like Sophie's sibling status as eldest. Jones kept me guessing at all the characters, wondering who was really good and who was evil, until the very end.

Light easy reading and recommended if you want to smile. ( )

So I've never seen the movie Howl's Moving Castle, but we have a Miyazaki fan art print up in our bedroom and I really love smoke filled fortress on it. I was really excited to find out what all of the fuss was about and jeez this was not what I expected. Sophie is an amazing badass who just kind of deals with the fact that she is old and moves on. The story handles being elderly in a way that is respectful and endearing, I really like how Sophie has the asides explaining her internal dialogues about her changed perspective because she has aged. I love how Sophie is down on herself and how her future is destined to boring because she is the oldest.

The reveal, when they travel to modern day, is so damn intriguing. Like I want to read the rest of the series because what is going on. Howl's character is interesting and I wish we could've gotten farther into his brain and his backstory. Howl and Calcifer's relationship is really fun. I really enjoy that Howl saved Calcifer and how they both rely on each other without telling each other the whole truth. Calcifer is my fave. I had imagined him as a kind of creepy fire demon but I looked up the movie version and that is way better. Also the weird dog human. Also the sisters that switch bodies. Also Mrs Penstemmon. They are all awesome. Like even the characters that show up for a minute (like that poor star that dies) are still memorable.

I really enjoyed the book. The final chapter felt like a jumble of all of characters kind of smashed together to give the story resolution. I wish we could have gotten more insight into Howl's character and what's motivating him besides being a layabout. Still the description of a castle made of sunflower pots is pretty dope. 5/5 stars.

Book was very entertaining and light. Lots of whimsical spells and oddities.

By the end I was ready to move on. ( )

Read to the kids. Amusing. Confusing. Entertaining. Ended all at once in a heap, so suddenly it made me laugh. Makes me want to watch the Miyazake movie again. ( )

This one is for Stephen
The idea for this book was suggested by a boy
in a school I was visiting, who asked me to
write a book called The Moving Castle.
I wrote down his name, and put it in such a safe
place, that I have been unable to find it ever since.
I would like to thank him very much.

In the land of Ingary where such things as seven-league boots and cloaks of invisibility really exist, it is quite a misfortune to be born the eldest of three.

She was not even the child of a poor woodcutter, which might have given her some chance of success! Her parents were well to do and kept a ladies' hat shop in the prosperous town of Market Chipping. -- Chapter 1 (p.1)
It was odd. As a girl, Sophie would have shriveled with embarrassment at the way she was behaving. As an old woman, she did not mind what she did or said. She found that a great relief.  -- Chapter 5 (p.83)
