O scholar of books (meaning you) please enlighten your heavenly being and read Castle in the Air (read Howl's Moving Castle first if you haven't already).

Disclaimer: This book is filled with exaggerated praise (reference example above) which will make the reader laugh hysterically.

Besides the funny and entertaining nature of this book, there is also a witty and unique cast of characters. No one is truly evil in this book. I personally liked how the book felt very conclusive. If one character was introduced, you got some idea of what happened to him/ her. In that way, Castle in the Air felt very complete and wonderful.

So scholar of books are you ready to go on a crazy adventure to find out what is going on with the Castle in the Air? (Please answer yes and read it!!)

Very much okay! Not as enjoyable as Howl's Moving Castle, but still quite nice.

Almost gave up in the first 100 pages--it's like an Aladdin story in a generic middle east setting--but then they get to Ingary and non-Aladdin-ey things start happening.

Amazing, just like Howl's Moving Castle (which by the way is kinda the prequel to this book) and Howl is just as amazing as ever, although you only realize who he is in the end. Lots of mystery, adventure and humor. MUST READ FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE READ HOWLS MOVING CASTLE.
