I love this story and have read it several times. Here it is read aloud quite well by a talented performer. Her subtle voice changes made it easy to track who was speaking. An excellent book for children and adults.
I LOVE Studio Ghibli's anime film of this story. and while I do prefer the movie to this book, it was still an entertaining listen full of fun and magic. Kids and fans of Harry Potter will enjoy this one.
I have loved this story since I was introduced to the movie. When I found it was originally a book I wanted to read it. The audio book was great, the reader gave each character life and the story just painted a picture as if you were in the Castle with Sophie.
I grew up reading this book over and over and though I was a bit apprehensive about the narrator, she grew on me and I thoroughly enjoyed hearing my favorite book read aloud to me.
Oh I greatly enjoyed being able to listen to Howl's Moving Castle. I am dyslexic and find it hard to finish books or keep up a good pace. I'm terribly slow with reading.
I loved the plot, story, characters OMG What didn't I like about this book. I've seen the movie and hearing the book there was so much left out however it was amazing almost like watching an extended movie listening to everything happening.
I loved the voices she did. Cal was done very well, the way you would expect a fire demon to be.
The book is a film.... all you need to say is GHIBLI
For the first time I have seen a movie before reading the book and enjoyed the book so much more than the movie! I feel like the movie could have been made into a tv series so much was left out but with good reason, there was to much to cover!
Yes, and enjoy it even more!
I don't want to give spoilers, so I will say that the character development captivated my family over many nights, filled our house with laughter and left us longing for the next time for listening.
Sofie's banter with Howl is priceless.
No, over many nights :-)
The reader brought the characters to life. Her style and accent added to a fabulous story. This should be a part of the classics in fantasy literature.
