Never a story greater than Howl's Moving Castle. The book is wonderfully imaginative and lively. The narrator was more than I could have hoped for.

I like how it's different from the movie but a lot of it is still the same at the same time

Absolutely fantastic. The book and movie tell a similar story and they are both collectively good on their own honestly. I love this book, I love the characterization of Michael, Howl, and Sophie! Personally, the narrator was perfect and captivating, which matches the story as well.

I loved this story! I loved the Miyazaki movie since I was a little kid and this book was magnificent! The author does a great job and it's easy to listen to while I'm doing other things without losing track of what's happening.

i only just joined audiobooks and was wary about the VIP pick I would get to have - figuring it was going to be a bunch of choices I would be uninterested in. I was pleasantly surprised to see so many great choices! My boyfriend was looking over my shoulder when I was contemplating choosing this book and he was excited to see the title, letting me know there is also a movie. I haven't watched the movie yet, but the book was fabulous! It is kid friendly and for lovers of magic and mystery. If you loved The Girl Who Drank the Moon you will love this too!
