Teens Discuss Howl's Moving Castle

On this cold November evening, Montreal youth gathers to discuss the fantasy-filled novel by Diana Wynne Jones, Howl's Moving Castle.

Benjamin, a local teen, hosted a group 7 readers to discuss, debate, examine, criticize and praise this month's Teen Book Club read, Howl's Moving Castle.

A large part of the discussion was dedicated to the age-old book VS movie debate, since there is a Studio Ghibli movie adaptation of the novel, also called Howl's Moving Castle. Several readers were not impressed: "What? I mean, the movie was nothing like the book!! So annoying. I couldn't get through it." Although the Studio Ghibli movie is well-made and beautiful, it is a little frustrating for people who have read the book first and do not see any resemblance with the movie. 

The event continued over pizza and hanging out. Thank you for a lovely evening!
