Howl's Moving Castle

In my unemployed state I find that I have a lot more time on my hands than I might wish and this past week I've been using that time (probably quite unwisely) to watch Howl's Moving Castle, the movie by Hayao Miyazaki.  It is fantastic. Before a couple weeks ago I had never seen it, though I had heard of it. (It played at the IC once or maybe even twice while I was at BYU, but for some reason I had missed it.) But, this is one of those movies that I could watch over and over again. In one sense it reminded me of The Legend of 1900--the way that I was prepared to watch it again almost as soon as it was over. It is just a fantastic film, I love it so much.

have you read the book? It's by Diana Wynne Jones. She has written a lot of fantasy that I absolutely love.
Since you have time, run to the library and check some of it out. :)

I did read the book. It's pretty awesome. The book and the movie are totally different but they are both so amazing in their own ways.
