Young merchant Abdullah leads a humble life. Or he did until a stranger sold him a threadbare—and disagreeable—magic carpet. Now Abdullah is caught in the middle of his grand daydreams. Waking one night in a luxurious garden, he meets and falls instantly in love with the beautiful and clever Flower-in-the-Night. But a wicked djinn sweeps the princess away right before Abdullah's eyes, leaving the young man no choice but to follow. This is no ordinary quest, however, for Flower-in-the-Night isn't all the djinn has stolen. Abdullah will have the so-called help of the cantankerous carpet, a cranky genie in a bottle, a dishonest soldier, and a very opinionated black cat. Will this motley crew be able to find the djinn's mysterious dwelling and rescue a castle full of princesses?

Howl's Moving Castle - now Aladdin flavored, with 40% more human transformations!I was having a lot of fun reading Castle in the Air.

5.0 Castle in the Air
Sometimes it's hard to pick the next book I want to read (new stuff usually beats out old stuff, and the new stuff I have is numerous enough to make it difficult to select what I really really want to read next), so it's good to implement a system to help me pick the next one. This time, I decided ...

5.0 Diana Wynne Jones "Castle in the Air"
Fantastyczna podróż na latającym dywanie, pełna magii, miłości i przygód nie z tego świata. Powieść niedoceniona. Brakuje mi jej w polskiej świadomości czytelniczej, pomimo że została wydana w 2006 roku przez Amber (w bardzo okropnej okładce...). Kolejny z moich kroków oswajania się z literackim a...
