The book: Howl's Moving Castle tells the love story between Sophie Hatter, who was unsure about her fortune and left her frustrating job at the hat shop after turning into an elderly women by the Witch of the Waste then insinuates herself into Howl’s household because of the bargain she made with Calcifer the fire demon, and wizard Howl, who has a bad reputation, but which Sophie soon discovered was actually kindhearted. This is a magical and fascinating tale full of love and miseries and magic, in which revealed the real kindness and pureness inside one’s heart. Overall, I really like this novel. I like how the plot is always changing and it’s unexpectable and magical for the readers, I appreciate how character structures were formed with different figures but with lovely personalities, and I like how languages used for narrating is simple but strongly effective.
