Fact 52: 

In contrast to the film, the novel of Howl’s Moving Castle is concerned with Howl’s womanizing and his attempts to lift the curse upon himself (discovering later how his lethal predicament is entangled with the fates of a lost wizard and prince) as well as running from the incredibly powerful and beautiful Witch of the Waste, who is the story’s main villain and not at all the ugly, yet harmless, character she plays on screen.
