I have to say I agree about the adaptation of the book being disappointing. I haven't read it, but Dianna Wynn-Jones is a good author and I'd hoped this would finally bring something the Ghibli films had been missing - a really good story - the ones I've seen have been a bit simple in this department. It ended up having similar themes to the others for me - I would have preferred a faithful novel adaptation storywise but with the unquestionably stunning artwork Ghibli are capable of. I think Miyazaki has too much influence on the stories (and who can blame him - it is his project), when it's not his forte and a professional writer would be more qualified and do a better job.
