Description

The beloved modern classic, released as an unabridged audiobook for the first time in 2019. 

In the land of Ingary, where seven league boots and invisibility cloaks exist, young Sophie Hatter catches the unwelcome attention of the Witch of the Waste and is put under a spell.... 

Deciding she has nothing more to lose, Sophie makes her way to the moving castle that hovers on the hills above her town, Market Chipping. But the castle belongs to the dreaded Wizard Howl, whose appetite, they say, is satisfied only by the souls of young girls.... 

There Sophie meets Michael, Howl’s apprentice, and Calcifer the fire demon, with whom she agrees a pact. Her entanglements with Calcifer, Howl and Michael and her quest to break her curse come alive with Diana Wynne Jones’s unique combination of magic, humour and imagination.

Really nice revisit to a classic

Kristin Atherton has a great voice, which can make action scenes crack and bring out nuanced, layered characters. I am extremely glad she read a favourite book of my childhood - it was lovely to revisit it, and she does it justice. I hope she will work on other DWJ books, because this one was brilliant.

As good as I remember

I have read this book in the past and have come to see if the audiobook is just as good. Spoiler alert - it is. I have enjoyed the narration by Kristin Atherton. She makes voices of the characters believable and her narration stimulated my imagination. This is a nice children's story and also a calming experience for adults.

Great book, next-level Amazing Narrator

After watching the movie, I had a lot of unanswered questions, so I went to consult the book. First, the motivations and interactions of many of these characters are remarkably different between the two. The key villains are completely different people as well (given the movie's predisposition to disbelieving in the "absolute evil"). Kristin Atherton's character impersonations really are an ascension of my expectations. I can't recommend her performance enough. Each of the characters has such a unique voice that it's hard to imagine they are all coming from the same person. Anyway, if you're on the fence with this auiobook, just buy it.

Amazing Story, Amazing Narrator

Not only is this a great story, like basically all by Diana Wynne Jones, the Narrator is just perfect for it. The way she speaks the different characters is very fitting and atmospheric, highly recommend!

a lovely children's story with inocent romance

love the story as it is mixed with humour, a mystery and romance, with a strong female character guiding the way and showing how powerful words may be. cute characters and fickle shooting stars.

Beautifully written and read

I can only agree with the other reviews: The narrator did an awesome job reading all those characters. I loved Howl's accent

Amazing narrator - amazing book you can't put away

I bought this audiobook yesterday and finished it today. The narrator is just amazing, her voice fits perfectly, she uses differnt voices for different characters and usually I don't like it very much but she just pull sit off. The book itself has a wonderful storyline, that ends just as well as it starts. The characters all seem like real humans with their flaws and their good points. I fell in love with them and I am looking forward to the other 2 books from the series. I hope they are going to get released on Audible soon. In the meantime I will listen to the other books for Diana. Because this book convinced me that she is an amazing author!
