The Host

By Stephenie Meyer, who wrote Twilight.
I am almost done with it, and I think it is better than Twilight. The first few chapters were hard for me to get into, then it improved greatly....
I started reading it because I work in a middle school library and the kids kept coming in and talking to me about it.

MntMom, the reason I liked Twilight so much was because I loved the characters. Would you say the characters in Host are equally compelling? I know, it sounds silly to talk about characters in a teenybopper book as 'compelling' but there you have it. :-) I've been wondering about Host, and really on the fence about reading it.



ps: Robertdjr, you've been making snide comments all over the forum. If you don't have anything nice to say, STFU already.
WANT: Flynt dark wash size 28 or 29, TR painted pockets size 29, TR Joey rainbows (dark wash, any color stitching), COH wimbledon and ric rac (28 or 29 depending on strech). Any great sfam sig deals in dark wash size 28 (for work).

Summary: (Not for robertdjr.....but for those who are actually interested)
The author of the Twilight series of #1 bestsellers delivers her brilliant first novel for adults: a gripping story of love and betrayal in a future with the fa...te of humanity at stake.Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. The earth has been invaded by a species that take over the minds of their human hosts while leaving their bodies intact, and most of humanity has succumbed.Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, knew about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the too vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.Melanie fills Wanderer's thoughts with visions of the man Melanie loves - Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body's desires, Wanderer yearns for a man she's never met. As outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off to search for the man they both love.Featuring what may be the first love triangle involving only two bodies, The Host is a riveting and unforgettable novel that will bring a vast new readership to one of the most compelling writers of our time.

I was so-so about Twilight, and found this one much more interesting...the conflict and eventual friendship with Wanderer and Melanie is compelling. I did find the first few chapters to take a bit to get into, but it picked up quickly. I think they could make this into an awesome movie, if they had the budget for it.

I work in a middle school library, so I often read these type of books so I can discuss them with the students.....not only do I enjoy it, but it goes with the job.....
And I agree with others in the forum, STFU already, and JUST LEAVE. We usually welcome newbies but you are so
