The book is much different thHowl's Moving Castle was a book that I read to my kid's after we had watched the movie for about the fifth or more time. The book is much different than the movie in alot of ways for instance Markl is actually a fifteen year old boy not some ten year old like in the movie. Howl also has sister's in the book too. The Witch of the Wastes is betrayed very differently from in the movie to the book by quite alot. Overall Howl's Moving Castle is a very enjoyable book to read and movie to watch as well. I would definitely recommend reading the book to anyone including fans of the movie....more

I love a good vampire book but this cannot be called a good one. I had high hope and was greatly disappointed. I honestly not recommend this book to anyone at all....more
