07/08/2002 Entry: "CASTLE IN THE AIR By Diana Wynne Jones"
I thought this was a fun book, definitely on the silly side. I wish they hadn't hammered so hard in the advertising/blurb that it was a sequel to HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE. I spent attention looking for that during a lot of the first 2/3rds of the book. When they ultimately reveal how much of a sequel it was, it would have been nice to have been surprised and not relieved. Once again, the romances are a little unbelievable, but since the characters are all larger than life, it's fine. -- Rebekah (03 Jun 02) Read more ...
