The book really changes how you saw the characters before, some in a bad way and others in a great way. Jones is able to flip everything that she sets up for her readers in the beginning of the book and have you pulling at your hair with frustration. But she does add the moments that keep you smiling and laughing at Sophie and Howls bickering and other antics toward one another.
By the end of the book you wont be able to keep the tears of happiness and love that you feel for the characters at bay any longer. Even though the book and the award winning movie cant be even more different, they both add to old of the most beloved story’s ever told.
5 out of 5 stars.
Summary: Sophie has the great misfortune of being the eldest of three daughters, destined to fail miserably should she ever leave home to seek her fate. But when she unwittingly attracts the ire of the Witch of the Waste, Sophie finds herself under a horrid spell that transforms her into an old lady. Her only chance at breaking it lies in the ever-moving castle in the hills: the Wizard Howl’s castle. To untangle the enchantment, Sophie must handle the heartless Howl, strike a bargain with a fire demon, and meet the Witch of the Waste head-on. Along the way, she discovers that there’s far more to Howl—and herself—than first meets the eye.
