Sophie has the great misfortune of being the eldest of three daughters, destined to fail miserably should she ever leave home to seek her fate. But when she unwittingly attracts the ire of the Witch of the Waste, Sophie finds herself under a horrid spell that transforms her into an old lady. Her only chance at breaking it lies in the ever-moving castle in the hills: the Wizard Howl's castle. To untangle the enchantment, Sophie must handle the heartless Howl, strike a bargain with a fire demon, and meet the Witch of the Waste head-on. Along the way, she discovers that there's far more to Howl—and herself—than first meets the eye.  

My Thoughts

OMGoshe I've been dying to read Howl's Moving Castle since I first heard about the movie years ago. Now I didn't know Howl's Moving Castle was a book until I started to really get into reading, in my early twenty's. So I say that I am not going to watch the film until I read the book. But of course the movie was totally different from the book. But I really did highly love both the book and the movie a lot but I love the book more. Now I think everybody knows about Howl's Moving Castle so I won't go into any details about it. I really did love and enjoyed everything about this amazing book. I love the plot, the characters, the writing style and I absolutely love the world that Mrs. Diana Wynne Jones created. The world was so beautifully, brilliant and very creative that I couldn't get enough of reading about the world. It really did fascinate me a lot. Now I don't read a lot of science fiction and fantasy book but I really did love and enjoyed Howl's Moving Castle a lot. That I really do highly recommend Howl's Moving Castle if you love Science Fiction & Fantasy than this book is most definitely for you. And if you don't read science fiction & fantasy I still say please give it a chance you won't regret it! Until Next Time My Friends!
