And it was so NOT worth it To sum up my impressions of this story WAAAAAHHHHHHH WHYYYYYYY??? This refers to the pointless waste of an entire tropical forest on the printing of this 600 pager in which NOTHING happens I kid you not Well what else did I expect from a woman who created sparkly virgin vampires??? Hanging my head in shame In my defense here is the uote from this trainwreck book Perhaps without the lows the highs could not be reached Maybe I expected the highs just teeny tiny highs after Twilight the sparkly book I don't speak of? This definitely had the aforementioned lows but also a conspicuous absence of highs And it didn't even have the unintentional hilarity of Twilight sparkly series WAAAHHHHHH EXTRA EXTRA READ ALL ABOUT IT There will be a movie It IS happening unlike the book in which nothing is Ok it's old news but I am behind on my pop culture The important thing is the movie stills are out And they highlight the very important way in which it differs from Twilight the male love interest is wearing a gasp SHIRT In both pictures Proof Alright enough of the silliness Let's get to business This book COULD HAVE HAD potential The premise can be interesting our planet overtaken by mind controlling centipedes souls it takes people a while to realize that the invasion had happened and the resistance emerges Add to it that the invaders are apparently looking for little than world peace and this has the beginnings of a fun sci fi ish story Alas that didn't happen Our lovely protagonist ladies and gentlemen My vision Let's immediately clarify this sci fi romance as I have seen it described is neither sci fi nor romance Instead we have a watered down story of sometimes angry overprotective men pushing around and ordering around the helpless meek anxious and selfless heroine and occasionally carrying their women around as all men are prone to doing in Ms Meyer's books There is a lot of brooding glaring staring whispering and murmuring was Ms Meyer paid extra for every instance of murmur in the book? It would seem so The narration is weak lazy and overly dramatic The characters are caricatures Pages and pages go by without ANYTHING happening Boring YAWNThis book deserves ZERO stars It is to literature what Gigli was to movies Anyone remember that awfulness? Probably not as I was likely the only sane human who saw it Again masochism Your time is precious; please don't waste it on The Host Do anything else instead like watching paint dry which still would be enjoyable Edited to add in bewilderment This book has a 386 rating on GR Am I reading the same thing as everyone else? Was my copy of this book defective in any way?
Stephenie Meyer ½ The Host book
Melanie's body didn't expect to find its former tenant refusing to relinuish possession of her mindAs Melanie fills Wanderer's thoughts with visions of Jared a human who still lives in hiding Wan I really did enjoy this book It is narrated in the same style at the Twilight book in the first person The things that make this book really good are the internal dialogue between the main characters Melanie and Wanda I am told that this did not work too well in the movie but as a book it makes great interesting readingThe story an alien invasion has happen we the humans have lost or have we? The Aliens call themselves Souls; they think it is the closest translation from our language They are parasiticsymbiotic in nature They are inserted into through the back of the neck and attach themselves to our brains and control our bodies They have done this on at least eight other different planets The society seem to have 3 classes Healers their Doctors Seekers their police force and the general populace they are never referred to as then Souls Their occupation seem a seeking of knowledge and experiences that maliciously or ambitious The aliens so not seem to be well armed and do not like violence The Invasion has been of stealth slowly taking over people and their neighbours before any realised Most of the technology seems to have been concentrated on healing and space travelThe reason I ask the uestion is did ne lose is because on all the other planets they have conuered they have never met a species that is a conflicted emotional and diverse all at the same time The other species offered little or no resistance and the aliens were just accepted The Aliens seem to have no personality of their own in their natural states The personalities seem to be the sum of their experiences from previous and current hosts The only real method of telling if some have been taken over is their eyesMelanie is one of the few humans left till she is captured she tries to kill herself rather then submit to being taken over but the aliens heal her body The Soul she is bonded with is called the Wanderer because of all the worlds she has visited but never settled on for than one hosts life time Usually this is it the Soul takes over and replaces the Host with full access to their memories and carries on living their lives Melanie being the fighter she is refuses to go uietly he is presence and voice constantly with the Wanderer As the story goes on we find this is happening and strong will Humans refuse to be giving the aliens' full controlUsing or being led by Melanie Wanderer finds possible the last outpost of pure Humans If she has any hope of surviving Wanderer must make peace with Melanie; then together they must try and convince the humans they mean no harm Both sided must put aside their preconception of the other and try to find common ground This is a great story about the human spirit The language is definitely at a higher level than Twilight probably because Meyer has realises her fans have grown older Meyer's writing style has a good story telling flow to it I enjoyed reading the whole book The only think I would grip about is the lack of action in the book; there was action in the football game and the bonus chapter Alone then in the rest of the book However she was writing for emotional content then action This is an intelligent different story seen through the eyes of both Humans and aliens
