5.0 out of 5 stars Howl's definitely moved me!, 2 Feb. 2005
This review is from: Howl's Moving Castle (Paperback)
Thank goodness there are people out there like me!! I have read this book at least 20 times (probably more!) since my early teens and at 23 I'm still going strong, thumbing through dog-eared pages!
I have no hesitation in saying that this is my favourite book of all time. I fell in love with the magic and the mystery the book conjures up. I was sucked into the world of Ingary and every visit I made I never wanted to leave! I have been waiting eagerly for years for this book to be made into a film. Forget Harry Potter, this is the fantasy story that deserves a cinematic showing.
I know the characters so well they almost feel like family! Sophie with her defiant attitude and ambition (despite a spell that's turned her into a 90-year-old crone!) and Howl with his womanising and three-hour long bathroom stints, hmmm reminds me of a few men I know!
With a door that can open to four different towns Howls Moving Castle is a fantasy masterpiece that everyone must read. If you're a lover of all things weird and wonderful this book will knock your seven league boots off!
