Publisher's Summary

A new look for one of Diana Wynne Jones’ funniest and most popular novels.

In the land of Ingary, where seven league boots and cloaks of invisibility do exist, Sophie Hatter catches the unwelcome attention of the Witch of the Waste and is put under a spell.

Deciding she has nothing more to lose, she makes her way to the moving castle that hovers on the hills above Market Chipping. But the castle belongs to the dreaded Wizard Howl whose appetite, they say, is satisfied only by the souls of young girls.... There she meets Michael, Howl’s apprentice, and Calcifer the Fire Demon, with whom she agrees a pact.

But Sophie isn’t the only one under a curse - her entanglements with Calcifer, Howl, and Michael, and her quest to break her curse is both gripping - and howlingly funny.

    Story
    "The only problem with this book was it's abridged."
    Where does Howl's Moving Castle rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the very best stories I've heard, one of the best readings I've listened to.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Howl's Moving Castle?

    I love the sarcastic humour of Howl's response to Sophie.


    Which character – as performed by John Sessions – was your favourite?

    Howl, but they were all excellent.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    It's already a film, by Studio Ghibli, so why imagine?....


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to this story over and over since I purchased it and it's nearly pushing my previous favourite book, Kim by Rudyard Kipling, off it's top place. It's an enchanting, highly amusing, faintly ridiculous story that has me chuckling every time I listen to it. Brilliant story, wonderful reading, PLEASE, please can we have an unabridged version read by John Sessions and I'll buy that one to!

    "Fantastical Fantasy World"

    I have been trying to obtain a audio copy of this book for a couple of years so was very happy to find it on Audible.

    Diana Wynne Jones never ceases to please amaze entrance with her story weaving of magicians‘, mystery & magical mayhem.

    The only disappointment for us was that this is an abridged version of Howl's Moving Castle so it was over far too quickly.
