I loved it. I found out about it after the movie but I'm not sure which version I liked more. They both have their own very charm and I love the characters in both stories
I'm about halfway through it at the moment but so far it has not disappointed me! I was introduced to this series by the movie (as I've noticed most of the readers are) and I love that each one is unique. While the movie has taken quite a few artistic liberities and changed the story a bit; I can still see the inspiration from this book.
Sophie is far more enjoyable and relatable in the book, Michaels character is completely different, Calcifer is still a witty sass, and Howl is definitely more of a mystery and I seriously love that. Despite the movie setting some of these characters images in my mind I can still separate them and that's the sign of a good author.
One of the only downsides to seeing the movie first is that every time the characters speak I hear in the actors voice instead of the characters. Can't wait to get back into it!
I just finished it and holy cow I do love this book!! I cannot wait to read the rest of the series!!! I won't spoil it but I absolutely love the ending!!! Very excited to read more 😁😁
