For the first time in a long time, I have no thoughts to write about a book I've just read. And it's not because I loved it, or even
Howl's Moving Castle is about, well, the Wizard Howl's (literally) moving castle. It's bewitched, see. Sophie, the eldest of three girls and who was, therefore, fated to be a failure (okay, I didn't get that), finds herself an old lady by virtue of a spell cast upon her by the Witch of the Waste (West? Oz?) and so, she attempts to seek help from the Wizard Howl for her to be changed back into her youthful self. Unfortunately, she also inadvertently gets into the middle of a tiff between the Wizard Howl and the Witch. The story basically revolved around Sophie, Howl, Howl's apprentice Michael, and Calcifer, Howl's fire demon who supposedly controls the moving castle and Howl's powers.
Apart from that, I have nothing more to say about the book.
Blah. Maybe I just didn't get it?
