This is an EXCELLENT book. Many differences between this and Miyazaki's rework of it for the animation (which I was familiar with first).

If you like the film, definitely get this!

I'd say better than the film. And I enjoyed the audiobook narrator.

I'm a diehard Ghibli fan, and love Miyazaki's adaption, but I'd say the book is slightly better than the movie. The story ends differently, with Howl and the Witch of the Waste battling. The sequel book is also a good read.

Interesting. I never knew the anime was made base on a book, something I learn each day on SD

A beautiful book. I wasn't even aware there was a sequel, so don't be dissuaded by the "Book 1" part.

I really enjoyed reading the book. I first knew about it through Miyazaki's film and then later found out there was a book, so I had to read it to compare to the film. There are a few differences, like stated before, but it's definitely worth the read. I think the film and the book are really great and would highly recommend it to anyone that likes fantasy and a good-looking male lead. Smilie

The Google Play ePub link doesn't work. I spent half an hour talking to their support about it and they said I need to download Adobe Digital Edition and go through a big hassle to get it working. I just want to download and send it to my niece as a gift.
