Book Review: Howl's Moving Castle


I just finished reading Howl's Moving Castle. I expected a lot more from this book, given that it's Miyazaki's next movie, but sadly I came away from it pretty disappointed. It was a really hard book to get into, but I can see adapting it to film form pretty easily. For a children's book, it's pretty scary (or at least for the kids with vivid imaginations). I look foward to the movie, but I do have a feeling the movie will better than the book.
