** spoiler alert ** 3.5. I think if I read this when I was younger it would've been a 4 or 5. As an adult, I found the ending a bit rushed and would've liked to see more of Howl falling for Sophie. It felt too pat.

That said.

I loved the whole use of magic in this novel, and the idea of preceptations. Sophie's magic is awesome, and even the smallest characters have life. And the use of doors is totally awesome.

But I loved the fact that Sophie was the eldest. Loved that, and loved the fact that the sisters loved each other. It was a good family.

Totally charming.
