Books vs. Movies: Howl's Moving Castle by Diane Wynne Jones

It seems like nowadays that all of our favorite books are being turned into movies. This meme is about the failures and winners of the silver screen in comparison to their books.

Winner: Studio Ghibli generally always makes amazing movies. The art and music is often beautiful. This movie seemed more like it was inspired by the book than a true adaption. Sure the general facts are the same but there are so major differences. The movie is magical, funny, and sweet. Plus, Studio Ghibli produces the only Anime that I can stand watching in English.

Loser: This is still a great book. There are two reasons I name this book the loser. The first being that the romance is so little that it's practically non-existent. Second, I find that the book is really slow. Even the action sequences. At times that I should have felt scared or panicked, I didn't.

The book and movie are both worth checking out. Have you guys read or seen the movie? What did you think?
