Howl's Moving Castle trilogy book 2

NOTE: This is #2 of the Howl's Castle trilogy, so if you don't want to ruin Howl, the you should read it(Howl) first.
This is a GREAT BOOK!!! If you like magic, wizards, and other like things, you will ADORE this audiobook. Coupled with Narrator Jenny Sterlin (who also narrates "The Hollow Kingdon" by Clare B. Dunkle, which is a similar masterpiece to Howl), this book will export you. The author is riotously funny in several places which I love. All star rating!!!!!! How can anyone NOT love it???:) -Adoring Fan

Wonderful, creative modern fairytale

I loved this book. The reader is the best. Her voices are distinctive and embody the characters. My only quibble, and the reason I didn't give it a 5 overall, is that in order for the ending to make sense, the listener must have read Howl's Moving Castle first. And in a way, that was disappointing because I loved the Djin, the genie, and the carpet.
