A review by jmarryott23
Howl's Moving Castle, by Diana Wynne Jones


This story didn’t capture me like I was expecting, though it clearly has for many people (4.27 rating currently). Not enough happens through most of the story, then the conflict arises too late and is resolved too fast. In a rare case, the movie is actually better because of the imagination Miyazaki manages to imbue it with. Still, I found the story far too convoluted, especially for a children’s book.
